Hotel Acta Azul Barcelona
Ranked #327 of 513 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 29 July 2012

We booked a room for three and were please to find that we had a suite with a separate bedroom and a small kitchen area off the main room with a dinette table near it. The room was larger than we expected and on the corner of the building. The air conditioning worked fine and the windows sealed out the sound from outdoors well. Hotel staff was friendly when we arrived, spoke English well, and since we arrived early in the morning they held our luggage without any incidents until we checked in later in the day. The hotel was clean, beds fine, and we found it a good value.
The hotel is located in a good area just a few blocks from Plaza Espanya where you can connect with the subway, and find restauraunts at the shopping center in the renovated bull ring. It also provides good access to the Magic Fountain at night and several museums and entrance to the Olympic park. Within half a block of the hotel you can find a bakery for breakfast and an ATM for cash.

Kitchen:
I originally booked this room becuase it said on the website that they have kitchen in the family suites. However, when we arrived, there wasnt a kitchen in our room. Not happy, I tried to talk to the reception, who did not speak very much English and was not too happy to help either. Therefore, our first impression of this hotel was not good.
Next morning, we woke up at 7 went down to reception again, this time the on shift reception was able to switch us to the sixth floor. He also told us that we needed to specify our kitchen request upon reserving the room. So if you are thinking of staying here and will be cooking, make sure you tell them that beforehand, as not all family rooms include a kitchen!

Location:
Very excellent location! 3 Min walk to the Arena mall, with food courts and a big supermarket on the bottom floor of the mall. Also, very close to Metro and the magic fountain! Very pretty at night.

Rooms:
The AC in our floor 6 room was better than floor 3.
Blankets in floor 6 was thicker and newer than floor 3.
So I am very glad we got switched to floor 6!
There weren't really 2 rooms. It was one bedroom with a big king bed, and 2 singles in the living room/kitchen area. This worked fine for us. Sheets were clean.

Internet:
A bit slow, but workable

Room Tip: Families choose to stay on floor 6, better AC than floor 3.

Nice boutique hotel with a very comfortable sized"family" room for the four of us. It was actually a two room suite and not those pretend suites you get in the US. You just can't beat the location either as it is an easy walk to many of the sites. Room was very clean and the staff very nice and helpful. Our AC worked very well. Bed was firm but that's how I prefer it. I would certainly recommend this place. Even though our room faced the main street it was very quite (we were on the 6th floor). No pool. Excellent value.

My family of four stayed here for a night in March and we booked a Quadruple room. The room did have four places for people to sleep, but only two of them were beds. One was a fold out cot and the other was a futon. The futon and the cot were very uncomfortable. At the time, Barcelona was having a hot spring, so the room was warm when we checked in. The staff informed us that the air conditioning was getting turning on that day, but it was not ready yet. Opening the windows helped cool the room off though.

The only good part of the hotel was the excellent staff. They were friendly and attentive to our requests. The quadruple room sleeping arrangement though was not what we expected.

Hotel Azul is situated in a fantastic location just off Plaza Espanya in Barcelona. The staff are very nice and friendly. The room is spacious and clean. There is a roof terrace which is very nice to relax on. The only wierd thing is that there are two sets of windows with the outer one locked with warning not to open it. Mentioning that the room was too hot at reception, we were given a handle to open the window, but still it shut under gravity and so the room was very airless and stuffy overnight.

Room Tip: Ask for an external room and then if it is too hot go to reception and ask for a handle for the wind...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights this summer with my fiancee, and had a great time. The room was large, clean and had a kitchenette as well as a separate living room. The staff was both friendly and helpful, and gave us great advice about getting around and practical tips on the city. We highly recommend this hotel, which although modest was very welcoming.
