Reviewed 28 May 2014

Wonderful hotel, room nicely equipped and a good size. Excellent breakfast served. The great strength of this hotel is the staff - especially a young Romanian lady called Dania who went out of her way on reception to take care of all our requirements and to make reservations for us. The hotel has a nice rooftop relaxation and pool area.

The hotel is located opposite the main park in Barcelona near the Arc de Triomphe and is approximately 12-15 minutes walk from La Rambla. However on the way there (a straight road), there are a number of squares where you can eat good meals much more cheaply and probably better quality.

Thoroughly recommended and we will return there on our next trip to Barcelona.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in for a long time. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the service was very good. Breakfast was substantial and our room was clean, comfortable and quiet, even though it overlooked a main road. The location is good for walking to the Gothic district and the Ramblas and other main tourist areas. It was a short walk to the port and on to beaches. We didn't have time to use the rooftop pool but it looked very inviting. I will now look to stay at K+K hotels in other cities.

This hotel deserves all the praise it gets - great location (El Born is a fantastic region to be based in with some great restaurants & bars in walking distance - saboc, llamber and Borneo) and a good mix of locals and visitors. The hotel is in easy walking distance of the Rambles, the beach, the gothic quarter and all the major attractions. The nearest tube stop is about 5 minutes walk, as is the red tour bus stop. The rooms are quiet and functional with an amazing range of toiletries in the bathrooms. Breakfast selection is great with friendly staff and service - something we found throughout the hotel. The roof top pool and sitting areas were a real bonus after a long day sight seeing in the city. We would definitely go back and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great base in the city.

As they say in the business and leisure world, location, location, location! This hotel is in the old Gothic district which is ideal. You wouldn't know it if you arrive at night, but that all changes during the day when the area comes alive with culture and people. The amount of places to experience true Barcelona food and culture around this hotel is overwhelming and endless. If I stayed there a week I wouldn't have scratched the surface of all to see around this hotel. The staff was more than wonderful and their recommendations on eating and sights were spot on. They made sure my needs were addressed and went far to ensure my comfort and even with my limited Spanish, made me feel very welcome. Would I stay here again, definitely would consider it the next time I travel to Spain.

I always maintain that any establishment lives or dies by their staff. The Picasso has the best staff and they made our stay the best. The room was fine, excellent shower, perhaps not enough storage in the room for two people for anymore than two nights. Buffet breakfast very good. But above everything, the personnel shine. Every single member of staff we encountered went the extra mile for us. We would definitely return to this hotel when we come back to Barcelona. Can't rate the staff highly enough.Well done everyone.

We were searching for a place to stay in the old section of Barcelona. There were many choices but we saw good reviews for the K+K. After staying there it is easy to see why. The room was very nice and a nice soft contemporary fell. The bathroom had a very nice shower. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. The best of all were the staff though. Super friendly and made you feel very welcomed anytime you interacted with them. For this caliber of hotel, this was an excellent value. We will look for the K+K hotels in other European cities now when we travel.

Room Tip: Our room faced the Main Street in front. When the balcony door was closed, you couldn't hear any...

We recently spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. We had a suite which was lovely for 3 friends, giving us plenty of room to spread out, as it was laid out as 2 interconnecting rooms.Very quiet, good shower,not sure about the trendy glass bathroom door when sharing with friends, lights up whole room at night!The staff were very friendly and helpful, we visited the pool but it was not the weather to take a dip. The breakfast was more than adequate, great choice of hot and cold items, felt I needed to walk a lot after as couldnt resist indulging!The location is great, on the edge of the Born district which is lovely and buzzy in the evenings, so much better than the Ramblas/commercial disrticts, narrow streets, great bars and restaurants without being naff. Felt very safe as a lady on her own in this area, when we were not together. Would highly recommend.
