“Average hotel.”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

Hotel is a bit worn, room was a bit small, and a bad view out the window. Saved by very friendly and helpful staff, and a fairly low price. Ok if you don't plan on staying too much in the room. Found the area good. Very close to the airport shuttle bus.

The Gran Ducat is perfectly located just around the corner from Placa De Catalunya, with its easy transport options, such as the airport bus, other buses and the Metro.
The rooms themselves are comfortable and have everything you need for a stay.Toiletries are provided along with an en suit shower, toilet, sink, room safe (20 EUR deposit) and tea and coffee making facilities. Don't expect a great view, but if, like me you only sleep and shower in the room, the rooms are perfect. The only minus I found was that my neighbours where a bit noisy with their door, not the hotels fault though.

The reception and all staff I met where extremely knowledgeable and friendly and a dab hand with a map and pen to point out the sights, places of interest and how to get to them.

All in all I would definitely recommend this hotel as a perfect place to stay and to explore Barcelona from.

Enough can't be said about convenience. The airport bus is a block away. The Gothic Quarter, Plaza Cataluña, Las Ramblas and the metro are a few steps from the hotel. An easy and lively walk to Barceloneta, the beach and its restaurants.

Excellent location. Room spotless although a little small. Great base from which to explore this beautiful city. Staff very helpful and left luggage lockers
were ideal for our evening flight. Would stay here again.

The hotel's location is simply amazing! 5 mins walk to catalunya and la ramblas and 2 mins to elcorte ingles. Breakfast was of good quality, everything was so fresh.

The main drawback was the room! We were a group of friends and had a triple room. The room was too small and we used to hear people talking in othe rooms and the extra bed was completely uncomfortable.
Yet,It's a good choice if you won't stay at the hotel much, as you will enjoy being close to all the main attractions.
