“Modern clean”
Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

This is a nice hotel with a modern interior and fantastic location next to shopping. There's a very small pool good for dipping only. Staff speaks English and are very friendly. However, I think they have a sewage problem. Our room smelled and the lobby was over powered by air fresher. I think they were trying to mask the smell.

Having just stayed in two similarly priced hotels in Barcelona and Sitges I was massively underwhelmed by this hotel. Maybe I've just been given the worst room in the hotel? Plus points - it has a espresso machine (but nowhere close to plug it in - so making coffee becomes hazardous) and the bed was very comfortable with good a/c in the room.

Downpoints - the room is tiny. Furniture is crammed in and because there is only one small window which faces directly into other windows (you cannot see the sky at all from the room so I have no idea what the weather is like). Every door in the hotel seems to slam shut and shake the walls - and anybody talking in the corridor travels through the walls which must be paper thin.

Location is good enough with Plaza Catalunya actually two blocks away) (slight mis-naming there).

I cannot see myself deciding to stay here again if this is the size of the room they sell at this price.

Room Tip: Demand a room with a window facing the street.

We spent three nights in an executive king room, 2nd floor facing street with small balcony. Room was quiet, bathroom large with 2 sinks. Very modern, minimalist feel to it. Perfect location for visiting Barcelona. Staff helpful with restaurants,tourist info and tickets for hop on/off tour bus.
Excellent price/performance.

We stayed for three nights here and were very happy. The location is just far enough away from the bustle of the Plaza Catalunya but close enough that it is a five minute walk. The hotel is 10 minutes walk to La Rambla and 15 minutes to the port. The staff was very friendly every time we interacted with them. The room was very spacious for European standards and our room overlooked the street with a small balcony to allow for some people watching ( our favorite pastime) . The bed was the most comfortable bed and I wanted to pack it and take it with me. I would recommend this hotel because of the staff and the location!

First of all excellent location. Purchase a T10 ticket for just over 10 euros from the Airport and you have your journey to the hotel and back as well as 8 metro trips - bargain!!

30 mins from the train station get off at Passeig de Garcia. When you get to street level you will see Gaudi's Casa Battlo. Stay the opposite side of this building and walk downhill on this main road until you see a Zara on the corner (not Zara Home that's the street before). Turn left down this street and look for the Santander symbol in the distance - Hotel Indigo is next to this. You are now streets away from La Rambla and Plaza Catalunya and you have a cash machine right next to you!!

The hotel was lovely. We got upgraded on arrival to a Superior King with a Terrace at the back of the hotel. Thank you a Hotel Indigo!! The bed was a joy to sleep in - lovely and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities on hand you just need to buy your own tea bags!!

Air conditioning was easy to operate as it was the same as at my place of work!! One of the quietest air conditioning systems I have ever had in a hotel.

Great walk in shower with the option of using the adjustable head or fixed large head. Bathroom and room all spotless. Room service every day. No problem with water pressure.

Staff so welcoming with smiles on their faces everyday of the 5 days we were there. Booked tickets online from my room for Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell and asked staff if I could email to them so they could print the tickets for me - no problem did it in minutes whilst I was waiting at reception.

The only downside was the free wifi. It kept dropping out every 5 to 10 minutes so you just had to be patient.

In summary - if you need a hotel in Barcelona that's central don't look anywhere else. Stay at a Hotel Indigo. Happy customers !! We will be back!! :-)
