“Great hotel - clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

It was surprisenlyIt was surprisingly great 3 star hotel – even much better than some 5 star. First of all we liked the location – nice and central area. The hotel is very clean and minimalistic style. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but there are plenty of cheaper choices nearby. There is no fridge in the room which is a disadvantage during the hot summer days. Bur there is a supermarket just across the road where you can buy cold water since it was very expensive water in vending machines at the hotel. Air condition worked very well. Swimming pool on the roof is great (if you use it very early in the morning or late in the evening), otherwise there are always too many people there. You have really nice view from the roof. WE would definitely stay at this hotel again if we get a good price.

This hotel is located near La Rambla however, I felt that I was passing through back alleys to get to it. Let's face it, I booked based on price, pool, location and roof top views. The pool is nothing more than a photo op as it is very small. The roof top is tiny and crammed with guests, but WOW what a view! A good basic hotel that I would be unlikely to return to. We did not eat breakfast in the hotel, so I am unable to comment. Rooms are spacious and VERY quiet. i did not hear a peep.

If you are looking for a well run, clean, reasonably priced, quiet and conveniently located hotel then you will be hard pressed to find anywhere better than the Andante Hotel in Barcelona. The hotel is located off La Ramblas in a quiet area. Your hotel keycard has to be used to get into the hotel and to use the lifts, so security is excellent. The bedrooms are large, modern, clean and quiet both in terms of outside noise and noise from other guests. Breakfast is buffet style and serves hot food, cold meats, cheese, breads, pastries, cereals, juices etc - everything you could need. The hotel only does breakfast but there are a zillion eateries in the area. There is a safe in each room which is free, as is the wifi. There is no coffee making facilities in the room or a fridge but there is a coffee vending machine in the reception area. The port is approximately 10-15 minute walk away and the Place de Catalonya is about a 20 minute walk away, although there are ample reasonably priced taxis, buses and the metro nearby as well. One very small negative - the pool area is very small with 11 loungers and the pool itself is tiny. It is also quite enclosed so there is a sauna/hot house effect so you couldn't stay up there for long on a hot day. We went up twice and both times all loungers were taken so we didn't stay. So don't go to this hotel if its a holiday by the pool that you are looking for. As a base for exploring the city its perfect. If we were going back to Barcelona, we would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Cannot really fault this hotel at all with its lovely large clean comfy rooms. Beds especially comfortable for great nights sleep. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Fantastic security all round for both entry and car park. Close to so many great attractions and of course La Rambla only a street away.. Neighbourhood in itself is not most exciting. But only real down side being no great outlook or views from room except into building of apartments next door with pool and deck area being rather small to accommodate a large number of guests at once. But hotel perfect for our needs. Definitely would recommend and would stay again on any subsequent visits to Barcelona.

Globally good stay in this 3 star hotel
+
Staff is friendly
Rooms are large. A bit dark but in the hot summer days it's not an issue.
Location is ok. Close from la Rambla although the neighbourhood is not so friendly.

Rooms are clean but could be cleaned a bit better. Stains on the white walls (like when the luggage gets a shock on it), floor definitely needs more cleaning. Floor is either white or black depending on whether you are in the bedroom or bathroom but in both case it needs a perfect cleaning as there is either white stains or dark stains.
Very disappointed by the pool. Don't stay on this hotel if you plan on enjoying the pool. Way too small for such a big hotel.

The hotel website gives an accurate picture of this hotel. It is clean, well run and centrally located. The roof top plunge pool is ideal for cooling off after a busy day of sightseeing (remember to take your own towel). The vending machines and outside area off the lobby are really useful. A couple of minutes walk from La Rambla and the waterfront and yet on a peaceful street. We had a great value stay here and I would recommend to friends, couples and people about to embark on a cruise.

Room Tip: I would imagine the higher the better.
