“Fantastic location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2011

This is my fourth trip to Barcelona. The hotel I used to stay with did not allow booking 7 months out, so I checked out my alternatives. After searching tripadvisor, I decided to try Hotel Jazz. I am glad I did, as this one is more central, easier to get to from airport, and cheaper!
The Aerobus from airport is conveniently located one floor below arrival level of terminal 1 ( or A?) and runs every 5-10 minutes, depending on whether it fills up quickly. Fare is only 5.1 euros. The bus stops just above the metro station Universidad, which is less than half a block from Hotel Jazz.
We asked for a quiet room and was assigned 7th floor. I can understand a lower floor being bothered by the rumbling noise from a passing metro, as I can even feel( hear ) it on occasion in my room.
Front desk service is superior, check in process swift. Room cleaniness and amenties fitting for a four star. Bed very comfortable.
Location is what we wanted, as it is just two blocks west of la Rambla and near many attractions. The very large department store El Cortes, just north of La Ramblas, has a large grocery section in the lower floor, ideal for making a light meal to eat in the hotel .

Hotel Jazz is a 3 star hotel in Barcelona, I would recommend this to absolutley everyone from famalies to singles or couples to groups. I personally travelled with my partner and 2 of our friends. We could not believe that it was only a 3 star hotel it was beautiful, The rooms are Spacious, Clean and Modern. The staff are Friendly and Helpful.
The location if the hotel is fantastic it is very central and not noisey as you would imagine a hotel in the middle of the city is. The metro is very close to the hotel the 'universitat' stop is literaly outside the door and a few steps to to the left. The pool on the roof is beautifully laid out and very comfortable and relaxing. I dont think i had one complaint about the hotel I had an absolutley brialliant time in Barcelona and to rest my head in somewhere as nice as this was great. definatly well worth it. The only negative thing i will say is to any one who is visiting Barcelona in general is WATCH YOURE BAGS/WALLETS!!! pick pockets are everywhere around this city.

We stayed in this hotel on a recent trip for my partners birthday after reading alot of reviews on tripadvisor. They were all pretty spot on. The room was large and spacious (we have a corner suite) and a nice large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and big enough!! (my partner is 6"3 so that is always a problem!.) With regards to the location, it could not be more perfect for us. i was at the top of catalunya square and was a good base for us to sightsee. We also visited the rooftop pool and terrace- it was too cold to sit out in feb but it was so much larger than we expected from the photos and im sure there would be plenty of room for guests in summer! Overall a throughly enjoyable stay.

The hotel is situated in the very center of Barcelona. A suitable location practically for every type of vacation in the city. Just a three minutes walk from one of the central squares of the city - Plaça Catalunya.
The rooms are stylish, on the second channel on the in-room radio they play really nice jazz and blues. The hotel may rather be rated as a 4*, if they put bathrobes and sleepers))
The stuff is very helpful and cooperative.
So if you are looking for a medium budget, but comfortable and pleasant stay in Barcelona - this hotel probably is one of the best options.

We pick this hotel to stay because it's 1) great location - so near metro, shops, restaurants
and airbus stop (very convenient to pick up luggage after check out)
2) base on trip divisor's reviews
3) it's reasonable price and good star ratings

We only had a weekend break in Barcelona so good location's a must. We didn't regret a bit after check-in. In fact, we arrived at 10.30am at the hotel, and wanted just to leave our luggage and check-in later in the afternoon after 3pm. However, the receptionist was very friendly and said there's already 1 room available so she let us check-in right away!

We were very pleased with our room, it's new, clean and we love the interior design. Apart from the mini free shower gel & shampoo, surprisingly, the hotel even give you 2 sets of tooth brush with small pack of toothpaste & sponge. We wonder why it only has 3 stars, should deserve more.

We understand some reviewers of this hotel don't like the underground noise. But for us, we were so tired after the day trip so we didn't really heard much after bedtime. (we stayed on the 5th floor)

We went to the top floor of the hotel to check out the swimming pool, and the view from top was really nice and we started to imagine what will it be like if we visit this hotel in hotter weather ( am sure we will dive into the swimming pool)

The hotel provide free wifi access, which is so convenient with our I-phone since we used it to check the detailed map and nearby restaurants.

The hotel doesn't provide kettle ( I found this is very common in Spain) so be sure to bring a mini one if you can't live without a cup of tea or coffee. It does have a mini fridge.

Don't forget to ask the receptionist about the map (it's smaller than the big and bulky detailed map they gave you at the tourist information center). And on the map it will show you the 3 suggested sight-seeing tours from Jazz hotel, all within walking distance. Ask the receptionist, we had a young lady and she's very knowledgeable about all the local information.

We can't wait for our next stay at Hotel Jazz!

This is a new 6 year old hotel, so it is exactly what you see in their web site, clean, modern. The location is amazing. You are in the middle of the 3 main roads- passeo del gracia, rambla and rambla catalunya. We walked everywhere. For tourists Park Guell and magic fauntain are the only two places you need transportation. Of course it is not a 5 star hotel, but que quality is much better than what I ve seen in a 3 stars.

The hotel's walking distance location to major shopping and the touristy Las Ramblas is a major plus. But if you are looking for a warm, cozy environment this hotel is more austere modern chic. That's not a knock, just an observation. A minor quirk noted by others is the fact that the underground subway trains can be felt and heard from lower floors like ours. It didn't keep us awake, as it did others, but it is worth noting.

The staff were helpful and after we checked out stored our bags for safekeeping with tags until we were ready to depart for our next city hours later. That is a nice touch since the bags were both checked and stored out of sight. Some places you worry about your bags being taken due to lax procedures.

Our overall impression was good, but if you don't mind the lack of warmth it is a good place to stay in Barcelona; comfy bed (split into two twins) and good facilities. The second floor bar and computer area was also a nice addition.
