“Great Modern Retro Vibe”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Hotel Indigo is in a great location, close to great food, sites, shoppping and the biggest metro/train/transportation station I've even been in. It seems you can go anywhere in Europe from Placa Espanya. The front desk staff were super friendly, offered great suggestions and spoke a variety of languages. Our room was bigger than expected and the bed was super comfortable. Our room was decorated in a funky retro-modern style with loads of color. Skip the restaurant/breakfast buffet. The service is fine; however, the food is not very good. Everything on the breakfast buffet was cold including the food that was supposed to be hot (eggs, potatoes, etc). There are so many great foot options close by so no need to waste your money in the hotel restaurant.

Dear Terrie,

Thank your for your feedback. As you very well mentioned, our hotel is inspire on Gaudi's art, having on every room and common areas murals and pictures relating to his work together with plenty of colour, what makes the hotel very lively.

We hope to see you back at the hotel next time you are in Barcelona.

Kind regards,

I am an experienced and discerning traveller which loves the perfect balance between location, ambience and quality of services. I am not a big reviewer, but felt very compelled about leaving an extremely positive report for Indigo Barcelona which I have visited in a number of occasions in the last few months. Location will not be beaten - a stone's throw away from the amazing grace of Passeig de Gracia and beautifully immersed in the attractive Eixample neighborhood. The rooms are beautifully and uniquely appointed, and not for a second one forgets being in one of the most charming cities on earth, as Barcelona-inspired themes are frequent in each of the rooms and common areas. Service is corteous, professional and kind, regardless of the request and in particular some of the staff members have gone out of their way to help with my somewhat peculiar arrangements. Have had food and drinks more than once, and found nothing to be disappointed about but rather inspired, a modern international menu with a catalan touch. I will continue to travel to Barcelona regularly over the next few months and frankly will not really waste my time trying to look for a better option than Indigo - there probably isn't. And I'm looking forward to the hotter days, when the outdoor pool area will become even more enticing than what it is already. All in all - well done to the team and look forward to my next stay.

We have just spent 3 nights at Hotel Indigo during the first week in January and our experience was excellent. We were upgraded to a superior room and it was wonderful. There was plenty of space in the room, however the bathroom was a little small but the rain shower was much appreciated. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was very quiet which resulted in very sound sleep while there. Another added bonus was the ironing board and iron in the room. This is always a positive when travelling for a long period. There was also a coffee maker but I didn't use it. There was also complimentary juice and water in the bar fridge.
The location was excellent for many sightseeing activities. As stated in other reviews above, it was a 5 minute walk to metro and Placa Catalunya and Las Ramblas. We had dinner at Ciudad Condol which was recommended by a local for good tapas and it was only a couple of blocks away.
The breakfast was plentiful but unfortunately the food was not kept hot enough. There was adequate choice on the buffet.
I would highly recommend this hotel for its location, ambience and friendly staff.
The staff were very helpful, friendly and spoke very good English.

Room Tip: We had room 208, did not have view of street, was in quiet area of hotel.

Thanks for your lovely feedback. As you nicely state, we are very near the main city centre, what means, near very good Spanish tapas restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights from Dec 30 to Jan 2. What a great surprise this was after 2 long flights from Montreal.

Great location, a quick walk to plaza catalunya.

Great room (very large with a balcony), fantastic comfortable bed, very modern bathroom and very attentive staff, especially a blonde girl from England who was working in the restaurant (I forgot her name). Great breakfast also !

I strongly recommend this hotel

Dear Anthony,

Thanks for your comment. I am really glad the team went up your expectations. It is true the beach can be a little bit far, but on the plus side, we have a beautiful swimming pool right at the hotel that you can enjoy too.

We look forward welcoming you next time you are in Barcelona.

Had a fantastic break here with family and extended family.
Positives: Good location near shopping district and metro. Reasonable breakfast @ 12 eurs pls kids eat free. Usual Indigo standard rooms - great design and comfort. Staff fantastic - both beforehand by email, and during - they met every request with minimal fuss (we were booking 4 rooms with kids etc)
Negatives: One hilarious night where the bar could not find a wine bottle opener! Location not good for beach etc - which is fine in winter - but could be a pain in summer. we used taxis a lot to see the sites. (which were fairly cheap).

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

We checked into the hotel was greeted by Marcos. He was so informative and helped us out in everyway possible. The hotel was fantastic, nicely decorated and beds were extremely comfortable, really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. All the staff was very polite and went out of their way to help and direct us. The buffet in the restaurant was very good priced and they even offered us an omelet if we weren't completely satisfied with the buffet. At the time we visited Barcelona it was during their off season, just right before Christmas.

Room Tip: Our room was above the pool, away from the road.
