“Excellent Value”
Reviewed 23 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Bright, clean and modern hotel in a great location in the heart of the designer area. Rooms are exactly what you need for a short city break or business travel. Breakfast is continental and very reasonably priced considering the surrounding location. Las ramblas is a short walk away.

It's a very nice hotel: little but modern, and in a central location, near the Diagonal stop of the underground and next to Passeig de Gracia and to Gaudi's houses. The rooms are confortable. The prices are not too much expensive. You can choose if have breakfast in hotel . Anyway breakfast is tasteful. The staff of the hotel is very kind. There is no restaurant but this is not a problem because Barcellona is full of restaurants and lounge bar and just near Actual hotel there are many.

This hotel is quite new and we had a spacious room on a higher floor that overlooked the main street to the side. The room was very quiet though. The room and bathroom was large (big shower) and in excellent condition with nice linen, good hanging space, a safe, desk, bar fridge (not cold enough) and great airconditioning. Staff were great, when I returned with a bottle of rose one night and asked for a corkscrew from the front desk they realised the wine was was not cold and ensured I got an ice bucket to cool it. A 10 min walk from the nearest airport train station (quite straighforward) and about 15 mins downhill walk to Las Ramblas and similar walk to Segrada Familia. Some quite good tapas restaurants across the road. The Barcelona tourist bus stops across road so you can slip back to your hotel with ease and then pick up the tour again later with minimal fuss. For leisure travellers this is a good one.

We stayed at Hotel Actual. Perfect location. Amazing bedroom. Excellent service, very responsive. The breakfast was delicious. Will definitely stay at Actual when back in Barcelona. Our room had a little balcony by a busy street but we couldn't hear a peep from the outside world.

Room Tip: I think all rooms are nice from what I could tell. Mine was gorgeous :)

An interesting 15 minute walk from the airport bus. The area is upmarket and perhaps a bit overpriced for the offering. Rooms are very small and in no way should be called suites. Two people sharing would mean one sitting in reception whilst the other moves around the room. Take a 5 minute walk away from the main road and discover good local restaurants for better value

We stayed here for four nights at the start of September 2013 and found it to be exactly as expected.
The hotel is ideally located for exploring Barcelona if you don't mind walking (Casa Milà or La Pedrera is only one 'block' south) and if you do the Metro is on the doorstep as are stops for both of Barcelona's hop on, hop off tour companies. If you have a car, there is a handy car park opposite and Avinguda Diagonal is extremely close for getting into or out of town.
There are some great locations nearby for eating as well.
The room we were allocated was large enough for the both of us with a large shower and had a little balcony with a great view onto Passeig de Gràcia (possibly Barcelona's most expensive street).
The room was cleaned well every day and the breakfast was adequate but nothing special.
One thing to note, the double bed was actually two mattresses and the 'join' did cause some discomfort occasionally.
We were a little disappointed by the welcome on the front desk when arriving for the first time and they did try to charge us for additional breakfasts that we didn't have but this didn't detract from the overall experience.

Room Tip: Ask if you can get a room overlooking Passeig de Gràcia but be aware that it can be noisy at times.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Took the airport bus and got off at heart of Barcelona city centre. It takes about 15 mins walk to the hotel, but the are lots of shops on the way to keep you company. Hotel itself is very modern, staff is friendly and helpful. Rooms & bathrooms are clean and spacious. Location of hotel is excellent. There is a tourist bus just round the corner, and other major attractions which is walking distance. Overall, very satisfied. Would stay here again.
