“50th Birthday Weekend”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We are just back from a wonderful 3 night stay at this hotel.
The location was excellent and the staff fantastic - very helpful and attentive. .
Breakfast had everything you could possibly want and the menu changed daily. Staff were on hand to top up food plates and clear dirty ones and you hardly had a wait more than a couple of minutes when you first sat down to be asked if you wanted tea or coffee.
We had never been to Barcelona before but we will certainly return and would use this hotel again in a heart beat.
The one thing though that did surprise us initially though was the size of the executive room we had been given as it looked smaller than the photos suggested. There were three of us using it - our daughter had a folding bed in one corner and so is was pretty cramped - plus she had a television right over her head!
However it did not spoil our stay and we have returned home with great memories of a special weekend.

Room Tip: If travelling with more than one child, book a suite not an executive room

I have trouble finding anything negative to say about this beautiful hotel in the Born in Barcelona. It's nicely situated next to the park, and you have all the charming streets, cafés, bars and restaurants of Born just meters away. The Rambla and the Barrio Gothico (the old town) are just a nice 5-10 minutes walk away (unless you check out all the interesting shops on the way :).

The hotel itself tended to all our needs. Breakfast is first class with both local and continental choices. There's a nice pool area and sun terrace on the roof. The bar is good and they serve nice dishes there in the evening if you get tired of the endless options outside.

Our room, a standard double, was a little bit small, but very nicely furnished. Modern bathroom with a large shower. Very clean.

I would definitely recommend to stay here, and will most certainly use this hotel again the next time I'm in the city.

Hotel was absolutely lovely but silly enough it was the bathroom that blew us away! It was huge, modern and lovely. It even has a speaker in the ceiling that connects to the TV so you can listen to the TV whilst you do whatever it is that you are doing in the bathroom.

The hotel is situated within a few minutes walk of La Rambla. The staff were lovely.

Just a tip about La Rambla, there are African men selling noisy clacker things things for very little money but beware as it is a scam. What they are actually doing is looking from where you get your money from and how much money you have in your wallet. They will then ring their mates on their mobile and "bingo" you've been pickpocketed. It didn't happen to me but if you knew what to look out for you could see the scam whilst it was happening.

Our stay did not meet expectations. We always research our holidays and make our choice based upon the information that is available. We booked an executive room.

If you go on to the hotel website, two types of room are offered, namely classic and executive. The executive is described as a "spacious executive room" with an accompanying photo of an executive. I.e. on the room booking page, there is a specific photo next to executive and a specific photo next to classic. They are different photos. On another part of the website it is described as a "more spacious room".

The room we were allocated was the same size as the picture of a classic room. With our luggage it was cramped. There was one chair not two. There was little room between the bed and the desk. We walked past other rooms which were larger than the ones on the website.

I complained within 15 minutes of arriving in the room and was informed that I was in an executive room "because of the view". The view amounted to the leaves of a tree that we could not see past and a balcony that we could not get onto as the door had a latch on it which meant that people (deliberately) could not go out on the balcony.

The pictures on the hotel website clearly show people standing on the balcony of their rooms. To be clear, as a guest you cannot do this.

Wi-Fi ranged from good to intermittent to non existent.

There are some positives, the hotel is clean and the bathroom products that you are initially given on arrival are of good quality. Some staff are friendly, others less so. There is a printer to print off boarding passes. The quality of food at breakfast is good though the buffet can get a little crowded at times given the size of the breakfast room.

Taxi drivers have difficulty in locating the hotel (on three occasions they could not find it) so it helps if you write down the name and address of the hotel or have your card with the address to hand.

I went to this hotel feeling very positive because of the special occasion, I want to leave a positive review. I can't.

Dear guest,
Thank you for choosing the K+K Hotel Picasso during your recent stay in Barcelona!
I am very sorry that we did not live up to your expectations due to the apparently misleading photos you mentioned and the fact that you were not happy with the size of your room. It seems you would have benefited more from one of our junior suites as they provide much more living space and definitely are more comfortable for guests that need that extra living area. I am glad I had the chance to speak to you during your stay with us but am a bit disappointed for the poor rating as I had thought we had come to an agreement and since we parted with a smile, I really did not expect this poor rating of yours. If you ever make it back to Barcelona, my team and I would love another opportunity to welcome you back to K+K Hotel Piacasso!

We had a small room at this hotel. Location is great except that amount of street noise was a problem. Good service from the hotel staff. Breakfast room is a little small given the size of the property. I would rate this hotel as okay - but a great hotel given our experience.

I stayed at the KK Picasso for 3 nights with my sister and parents to celebrate my Dad's 60th. I contacted the hotel a couple of times prior to departure and they were very quick and helpful in their responses. Our entire stay was great, the rooms are a good size and well equipped, the staff are very friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. The breakfast is better than I have experienced in many other hotels, a huge choice of great quality food, regularly replenished and often a couple of different options each day. The location is great surrounded by great restaurants, the beautiful park and only a short walk from the beach and other main tourist attractions. Having the rooftop pool is also an added bonus for when you have time to chill out. They gave us a complimentary bottle of Cava to celebrate my Dad's birthday and from our arrival to departure we all found our stay at the KK Picasso a great one and we wouldn't hesitate to return or recommend to friends and family.

Room Tip: If you like a good view but do not mind a little road noise then request a park view room, if you pr...

We have just returned from a 3 night break. (Our first time in Barcelona)
Arrived on Friday morning at around 10.30am and were very pleased that our room was ready so we were allowed to check in.
Having spent time researching where to stay we were delighted with our choice of hotel for a number of reasons;
Nice clean modern hotel, great breakfast, nice staff, good location
Situated in the born area with lots of bars and restaurants to chose from. The archeological site dated from 1700 is just behind the hotel and parc to the front. It's about a ten minute walk to the nearest tourist bus stop and very close to gothic area.
Really pleased that there was no noise to disturb us.
We didn't use the terrace or pool but it will be lovely in the hotter weather to relax up there
Thank you for a nice stay
