Not fancy, but clean and confortable, the best of this hotel is its location; you are in the most strategic place of Barcelona, in my opinion. Walking distance to the ramblas and to the Eixample district (for nightlife), and close enough to Gaudi buildings, besides having lots of restaurants and coffe shops nearby. Good choice for cost/benefit.

we stayed here for 5 nights, the first night we checked in really late at 1 in the night and were given the tiniest room possible, could barely accommodate us with our luggage. however next day when we asked for a change, they gave us a great room, no questions asked. what made this place great for us was the perfect location and the super nice front desk staff. they were most helpful, recommended great things to do, especially Mariya and Jose. gave us great tips on places to go and things to do.
rooms do seem a little dated but were clean and spacious. cleaning happened every day and we returned every evening to a spic and span room.
it is also ideally located just off plaza catalunya, close to Ramblas and the shopping area. the metro, aerobus stop are all just a few mins away. Breakfast isnt included and we did not experience that so cant comment on that. but a great stay and value for money in a location as prime as this.

Good location hotel that has had some money thrown at it to do it up. A/C in each room and good clean rooms. May be a little on the smaller side but is still a good place to stay. ...............................

We stayed at the Gran Ducat for 3 nights at the beginning of June. We originally were staying in a sister hotel (which was rated far better than Gran Ducat on Trip Advisor) but on arrival, they put us in a taxi and took us to the Gran Ducat after being told that a floor of the hotel had been flooded and therefore couldn't accommodate us.

Although moving hotels did not bother me, after reading some similar stories online from previous guests, I am slightly suspicious that the company could be using the high ratings of their one hotel, to secure bookings, and once fully booked send guests to one of their poorly reviewed hotels which are struggling to secure as many bookings.

HOWEVER we were not in any way disappointed with the Gran Ducat at all.

The rooms were small, but modern clean and tidy. The shower room was again, small but clean.

The staff at the hotel were helpful, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Barcelona.

The location of the hotel was brilliant, just a minute stroll to the placa catalunya, with roads leading to Las Ramblas and all other places of interest. Although there are two metro stations within less than a minute walk from the hotel, we were so central to everything that we made the decision to walk to all the places of interest.

The only complaint I have about the hotel is the noise. The tiled floors and the thin walls meant that unfortunately you can hear a lot of what's going on outside of the room. The metro runs under the hotel, and if you focussed on it it can be heard from the second floor - although it is not very loud. For myself, the noise did not bother me, as I can sleep through just about anything - but for my boyfriend, who is a light sleeper he did struggle.

I would have no hesitation on staying at this hotel again or recommending it to friends and family in search of a modern & clean hotel in the heart of Barcelona for an unbeatable price.

Room Tip: The metro can be heard from Floor 2 - request rooms on the higher floors (5,6,7) in order to avoid t...
