This is a lovely swish hotel. It is very clean, tidy, comfortable and good customer services. But the pool is a lot smaller than the pictures and it's not very deep (thigh level). It is also extremely crowed in the afternoon, so much so people were waiting on the entrance stairs to get a piece of ground or a pool chair. Location is a short walk to most Barcelona attractions.

Room Tip: Go to the pool early

Our second time in Andante hotel - a lot of value for money! Family rooms are great, rooms have good size and are clean and practical. I miss nothing. Our kids love it, thanks to the small but nice pool, and we all want to come back yet another time!

Room Tip: Families: Ask for family room! You get two rooms across the end of a corridor, with the possibility...

Stayed here with a friend for a week and absolutely loved it. Reception were extremely helpful and always willing to point you in the right direction, make recommendations and provide maps. Hotel itself is very clean and very safe which was important to us. Rooms were fresh and clean with air con - couple of glasses for drinks would be useful though. Views from the terrace were incredible and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cannot recommend it enough and would certainly go back.

Room Tip: Rooms with terraces were apparently good but we didn't have one. With the incredible roof terra...

Good, well-designed hotel, close to La Rambla, with helpfull staff, BUT I can't understand why they can't put glass cups for water / wine in the room ? I found out only plastic cups in bathroom. The same about welcoming water in the room. It doesn't costs anything, but it is great if you can find it in the room. Outstanding view from the terrace.

We stayed in this hotel before our cruise out of Barcelona. All the public areas are very clean, trendy and in perfect condition. Staff at reception very friendly and helpfull. Room size is ok for a city hotel and very trendy and clean. Did not take the (expensive) breakfast so can't say anything about that. In the lobby and at the pool are vending machines with coffee, sodas, little snacks, ... Best thing about the hotel is...the GREAT pool!! Not that big, but the view is incredible! Only negative there: not enough chairs! Also no bar in hotel/pool which is a pitty. I would stay here next time if we will go on a cruise again: near port, near Ramblas... so perfect!

Really good value for money! Lovely clean hotel with welcoming and helpful staff, a little disappointed that we got 2 singles instead of a double bed but can't complain too much. No bar which keeps it at 3* rating but really it's easily 4* at least. The pool is amazing. Enjoyable stay!

We stayed here for 1 night before boarding our Disney Cruise Ship. I had two rooms and found their rooms to be very nice, clean and I felt very secure in this hotel.

The staff spoke English well. All the staff that we interacted with went out of their way to be helpful and were very courteous during our stay.

The hotel location was perfect and in walking distance to all the major historic locations of Barcelona.

Barcelona by the way...was an amazing City. We loved how clean the whole city was and thoroughly wished we had stayed in this city longer than the 36-hrs we were there.

Great hotel. Hope to visit again soon.
