HCC Lugano
Ranked #215 of 517 Hotels in Barcelona
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 September 2012

Booked this hotel on arrival at at Barcelona airport via tourist information office. Must say for 255 Euros for three nights at a city centre hotel was great value for money. I understand that the hotel opened ealier in 2012 and s in pristine condition with very clean and comfortable rooms and helpful reception staff. Whilst it only has basic amentiies for breakfast and a very basic bar, its condition, the staff, and its location close to buses, underground train system and toursit buses (via Plaza Espana) - make this an excellent stay.

Room Tip: Room 211 is quiet, not sure about the others

I stayed at this hotel after arriving at the Rialto in Barcelona to be told my booking had been cancelled due to a tour operator error. Myself and my travelling companion weren't particularly happy as it was further away from the region where we wanted to stay. However, upon our arrival we were very impressed. Standing on a main road, the hotel is extremely modern and clean. It is about 15 minutes walk away from Las Ramblas. We had a twin room, with an immaculate, large bathroom. The shower was a power shower and there was a full size bath. The sink was massive. There is a well stocked mini bar in the rooms, although prices for the drinks and food out of it were quite expensive. The bedroom has a TV and air conditioning. It also has a safe. Free wifi is available also. There are two very speedy lifts in the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. My favourite part of the hotel was the breakfast. Breakfast was served from 7am until 11am and the food was constantly replenished. Fresh coffee, a massive selection of herbal teas, bottled water and fresh milk. There were cereals, with bowls of fruit and nuts. There were exquisite pastries, and a good selection of bread. There was also a mini fridge with all manner of potted yogurts and mousses. There were lots of varieties of jam and honey, and fruit was also available. Added to that, there were cheeses, Spanish omelette and meat. You certainly won't go hungry. We found it better to be in this area as eating out wasn't half as expensive as in the Las Ramblas area. A word of warning, however. We ate out at a restaurant about 10 minutes walk away from the hotel and I had my phone stolen. I had read the warnings about crime, and been extra vigilant, but this particular night I had placed my phone 10 centimetres away from my hand on my table as I was waiting for my husband to call me back. Within 5 minutes, a beggar had arrived near us with a sign, which he placed over my phone and then picked my phone up and stole it. My own stupid fault, but it really happened so quickly in 5 minutes so please be aware of this scam, as well as the others that occur. Back to the hotel, the rooms are cleaned everyday. We were in a room at the back of the hotel which was quiet, but the view was of houses over the back. This didn't matter, however, as Barcelona is a place where you don't spend much time in your hotel room.

I spent 3 days at the hotel with my friend and we were very happy and pleasantly surprised by it! since there were no reviews on the hotel (it is newly renovated) we didn't know what to expect.
The location is really good - it's couple minutes walk from Plaza Catalunya and about 15 minutes walk from La Rambla. It is super clean - everything is so new and shiny! The room had everything we needed and i would say it felt more like 4 star hotel than 3.
The staff at the reception are amazing! They have all patience in the world to help you with anything you need - we got all directions and tips we asked for, they even ordered for us tickets for Flamenco show in one of the evenings and helped us confirm our flights back.. They are awesome!
I would definitely go back to the hotel and recommend it to all my friends,
Enjoy :)
