“Fab City - Good hotel”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This hotel has one of the best locations for central Barcelona. Directly across from the the Placa de Catalunya where the tourist buses and the airport buses leave from. Right at the top end of La Rambla (the main street is overrated in my opinion, but the little side streets are fantastic, so step into them).
The staff are friendly and welcoming and helpful. One slight disappointment with the rooftop terrace when we visited as it took quite a long time to get served and there didn't seem to be enough serving staff (the cocktails were excellent though).
Rooms are a decent size for a city centre hotel and were kept very clean by the staff. Had a room at the front with a balcony which was great. There is some external noise from the bin lorries emptying bottle bins etc and folk making their way home or back to other hotels, but a pair of soft earplugs sorted that out.
Had breakfast in the hotel each morning. Breakfast is good quality and self service, so you can have what you want. If I was going to make a recommendation on this it would be to add a little more variety to the cooked options - perhaps varying it on alternate days.
The hotel lobby and ground floor bar area is very comfortable and spacious. Loved the library feel in the back with a range of books sitting on shelves which you can read whilst you sip a drink or have a meal. Arrived quite late on the first night, but were still able to order a bar meal which was very tasty and served by the very friendly barman.
Overall, would I stay there again in future? Yes, I would.

Dear David,
Thank you for your detailed review!
Could you tell me when you went up on the rooftop terrace to enjoy your cocktails? We'll check what happened that made the service be slow.
We'll also revise the hot options on breakfast. Thank you for your suggestions!
Best regards and muchas gracias!

From the moment we checked in, our stay at Hotel Pulitzer was amazing. The location was perfect. Walking distance to sites, great restaurants and shopping. For the price, the hotel was extremely comfortable, the staff was welcoming and helpful and the decor of the hotel room and lobby was very contemporary, yet warm and elegant. We would highly recommend the hotel and would definitely go back!!!

We ate on the terrace whiles listening to live music. Its a oasis of green plants and coziness in the middle of the city centre. If you go on Wednesdays there is live music. Great little bites and the wine list wouldn't disappoint!

We have just travelled as a group, staying three nights at the Hotel Pulitzer. It was a real 'delight' from start to finish. The location was perfect, being situated along a quiet street, just 50 yards from Placa de Catalunya. Although so close to the busy La Rambla, remarkably, there was hardly any street noise at night We had rooms at the front of the hotel, therefore we were fortunate to have a balcony. The rooms were very clean and comfortable, The staff were very friendly, and the service received was exceptional. The breakfasts were good, and there was a pleasant outdoor courtyard area, adjacent to the dining room. The rooftop terrace bar was stunning. It had lots of tropical plants and a variety of extremely comfortable seating areas. A great place to start or finish your evening with a drink. All in all, we could not fault this hotel, and we would not hesitate to return. Thanks for making our stay such a memorable one. :-)...

A friend and I met up in Barcelona and stayed here for 4 nights. The room was very comfortable and reasonably spacious for a boutique hotel. Although we had a room at the front the traffic wasn't loud enough to keep a light sleeper like myself awake. Unfortunately we were only able to use the rooftop bar once due to the mixed weather. It was a lovely place to sit after a day out sightseeing. The main bar was very a good alternative with its very comfortable sofas..
The location is excellent as it is so central.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and I would be happy to stay there again if I return to Barcelona.

What a wonderful hotel/staff. Great Location!!! steps from Las Ramblas, but it felt like you were in a quiet part of town once you walked into the hotel. Our room was on the fourth floor facing the street with a small balcony, we're not sure what the complains about street noise is about we did not hear any noise once our balcony door was closed. Room was what you would expect in a 4 or 5 star boutique hotel nice size clean room, comfortable bed, big bathroom (always a plus), nice room service menu and lovey restaurant very busy at lunch with local business people. The roof top bar a must for a drink or light snack after a long day of sightseeing. But the "Best Feature" of this hotel by far is the staff. Our luggage did not arrive in Barcelona for 2 1/2 days they did everything short of going to the airport to look for our bag to help us. We can not wait to go back to this Little Gem, but next time with carry-on only. Highly recommend.
