“Excellent Central Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2014

We stayed at this hotel beginning of May for 3 nights and couldn't fault it. The hotel staff were very helpful in where to eat, book tickets etc couldn't fault them. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable and the rooftop pool was amazing. The views were spectacular. Breakfast in the mornings was nice, quite a lot of choice. When we first arrived at the hotel it was late at night and the area looked a bit dodgy. But in the daytime it was fine didn't feel threatened at all whilst there. The hotel is right in the centre of everything. Las Ramblas a 5 minute walk with the marina just down the road. The metro just around the corner and so easy to get around. I recommend seeing the Nu Camp tour around the stadium, being femal didn't think Id enjoy but I did. Also the Sagrada Familia is amazing we booked tickets before we went and just walked straight in. We did a tower tour the views from the familia were amazing. Also if you can do a cable car ride up to the MontJuic castle its lvely and again the views. Wow. The first time Id been to Barcelona and I absolutely loved it. I would definitely stay at the Andante again. :-)

Room Tip: Try and book a room higher up you get the best views.

Excellent hotel with attentive / helpful reception staff. Hotel is modern and chic. Spotless, couldnt fault the high cleanliness of the domestic staff. During our staff we upgraded to a private terrace for only another 20 euros per night, as such beautiful weather. They were going to charge us an additonial 20 euro for moving rooms, but we sure talked them round! The hotel does have a small pool on the roof top, although this can get busy when the weathers good. Great views over the city though, so be prepared to be camera snappy! The hotel is close to all bars/ restaurants (there is no restaurant at the hotel, they only serve breakfast), or metro to take you to some tourist attractions which are slightly out of the way. My only one gripe with the Andante was the kitchen staff. It was difficult to convince them to let us borrow an ice bucket or plates. We finally talked them round, but had to give a 10 euro deposit. ( who would run of with ice buckets and plates i dont know)! We were told when we were finished we had to return asap! This was over the top, but other than this, i would return to Andante hotel in a heart beat!

Not one for normally leaving feedback. But having spend 3 nights here I thought it deserved some positive feedback. Great hotel in all. Great position in the city, very clean, very friendly and very secure. If your looking for a 5 star money no object then its not for you. But for normal folk who have a bit of a budget and want the best for their money its highly recommended. The rooms are spotless, the shower a large good size. The view from the window is nothing special but I wasn't interested in that as only wanted it as a base and somewhere to sleep. The roof top pool is amazing with amazing views. Spent a whole afternoon relaxing up there towards the end of my break. Go for the breakfast, paid for it when we got there and was lovely. Will be going back to this hotel when we next visit Barcelona. Great value for money.

Room Tip: Any really, we were in the room nearest the main road, so a bit of traffic noise. ideally I guess an...

This hotel was in an ideal location, five minutes walk from La Rambles. Very clean. Gorgeous large comfortable bed. The best thing about this hotel is the view from the roof top. It is amazing at anytime of day/ night. Relax next to the pool to get away from the hustle and bustle of la rambles. Pool was cold but it was early may.
I would recommend this hotel

The Andante is just off the main street off Las Ramblas and was close to all public transport including the cable cart and tram to the castle.
We booked the standard double and it was very spacious and had everything we needed. Windows were quite small so next time I might upgrade to the double with panoramic views. Only let down about the room was the bed, we expected 1 double bed and had 2 singles pushed together with 2 seperate duvet covers.
The roof top pool was perfect for a relaxing few hours after a busy day!
The staff were very helpful in helping us find where to go and recommending things for us to do. Would definately recommend this hotel to any friends and family visiting barcelona.

Room Tip: If the views are anything like on the rooftop I would upgrade to the panoramic double room next time...
