We had 3 nights here and cannot fault it. It's the first stop, placa espanya, on the aerobus from the airport. Then just a short walk to the hotel. The staff were all very helpful and spoke English. The hotel was very clean and modern. The rooms are a good size and comfortable. The b hotel is right next to the old bull fighting ring, which has been converted to a shopping centre, and next to the metro. It's very easy to buy tickets as the ticket machines can be set to english. 5 mins to placa Catalunia, la rambla or the sea front on the metro. It's also only a short walk to the palace. at the end of your stay walk out the door cross the road and catch the aerobus back to the airport. It's so easy. Can't recommend this place enough.

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend (start of Feb 14) and had a wonderful stay. The room was huge, clean and very comfortable. We stayed in a deluxe corner room (ask for a room ending in number 9!) and it was perfect. The staff were all very helpful and friendly! The only problem we had was with the heating on the second night... it broke. But the man in reception came up to try and fix it then when that failed called a technician who came in the morning and fixed it. Also the roof top pool was closed due to repairs but we got 20% off drinks for the inconvenience. Plus it's winter so who's going swimming anyway?

The location is perfect for getting around the city with bus stops, metro stops & tour bus stops right across the road. There are some lovely little restaurants and a whole shopping centre with a food court across the road.

Definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room ending in 9!

Dear Guest;

Thank you for being so thoughtful in giving your appreciation of the time spent with us.

We were touched to read your kind words towards B hotel and our staff; I am mostly pleased that you valued our Deluxe rooms. This room type provides 34 meters square of comfort and a lot of natural light and since their location is in the corners of the building, it offers great views of the city.

Thank you for commenting that the overall impression of the staff was friendly and helpful. This point of course is the most important to us. Be assured that your positive comments were shared with each member of the team having contributed to enhance your stay.

Please accept my apologies for the isolated incident you had with the A/C system; fortunately we have a knowing maintenance team that could solve it quickly.

As you mention, our terrace is being renovated, we are reopening in the next days. It is good to state that we have previously advised all our clients; there is also a message in every online travel agency regarding this. I’m glad you took advantage of the bar discount and could had a good time around.

It is a great honor to read that you will stay here with us again!
Looking forward for that!

Kind regards
Benjamin Monti Muñiz

B Hotel is in a really good spot with lots of amenities very close by including a nice basic tapas restaurant across the road and a lovely little shopping area next door.
Only a 10 min journey from airport on the Aerobus and about a 10-15 min walk to the main tourist hotspot "la Rambla"
Unfortunately roof top pool was closed which was a shame considering the gorgeous sunshine we enjoyed but the bar and public areas of the restaurant are nice and the staff were lovely.
Room was very comfortable but a little shabby (ripped window curtain, scratched walls and plaster breaking up on wall) but all in all was a decent place to stay in a city where you don't want to be stuck in your room anyway!
Breakfast was a bit disappointing. Very basic and the hot options were poor, but gave us a good excuse to use the plethora of gorgeous coffee shops and patisseries on every street.
Loved Barca, great atmosphere and everyone we came across was friendly. Can't wait for next visit, at the end if the Summer when we can sip a nice chilled wine in a beach side bar ( wine is MUCH cheaper than back home if you drink the house wine by the glass. )
Don't hesitate to stay here if you like being slightly off the beaten track and enjoy exploring whilst you stroll along and see what you come across.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor roadside and it was a bit noisy with road traffic noise but didn't real...

My husband and I stayed here for a quick weekend trip and enjoyed it. The location was perfect-- close to the airport link bus and metro (and a bike rental shop 2 blocks away which we took full advantage of), and the staff was incredibly helpful and welcoming. The rooms were fine, and the breakfast had plenty of both hot and cold options. Had it not been January, the (unheated but beautiful) rooftop pool would have been lovely, but it was still a nice place to relax in the warm sun.

On our final day, we had no hot or warm water, but upon my review, the manager did offer me 30% discount on my next day, which I thought was nice. I would have preferred a bit off of last weekend's stay, but I had pre-paid for the hotel, and I understand that it couldn't happen. Overall, we were pleased, and if we were to get a good rate again, this would be a great choice.

Room Tip: We had an interior room on floor 7, which was very quiet.

We are truly delighted to know that you appreciated our breakfast, but specially our staff. For us that’s the best compliment, it makes us proud and encourages to improve in a better service every day.

We found a very cheap mid-week deal for this hotel but as it was so cheap I didn't expect big thing. However we got a bus from el prat airport to near enough outside the hotel as it is situated just opposite the espanya bus stop and metro station. The hotel has an impressive exterior which looks modern and chic and this continues inside the hotel.

Reception staff were very friendly and gave us any information that we needed. The cleaning staff were also very friendly and always greeted you with a smile. The corridors are modern and classy and you feel safe as you need to use a room key to use the lift and to enter your floor if you use the stairs.

The room itself was fantastic, we had a standard double room and the glass wall separating the bedroom and bathroom looked fantastic with the option of closing the electric blinds for more privacy. The bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. There was plenty of room to hang clothes and shelves for other items. The hairdryer provided isn't good (as expected in hotels) so bring your own if needed! Towels were clean, complimentary toiletries packs were excellent incase you forget anything and the shower was very powerful, so overall the bathroom is a 10/10.The view from our room was not good but not the end of the world, however I imagine the view from the front rooms would be much better and the receptionist did let us know that we would have a room at the back and we did not object.

As we went in January the terrace pool was closed and we did not get to see it and I did not use the spa service so cannot comment.

I would highly recommend this hotel to people on a city break or business.

Room Tip: The rooms facing the square have a much nicer view.

My husband and I stayed at B-Hotel for a few days over New Year's Eve. We got a fantastic price online for a deluxe room, which I would highly recommend - it was quite large and very modern looking. Front desk staff were fine and the room was nice and clean. The modern-looking parts of the room looked really cool but maybe weren't the most functional - the shower looked cool but made a mess on the floor, the platform bed looked cool but wasn't the most comfortable, etc. But the overall style of the room and hotel in general was quite trendy and upscale.

The drinks in the bar were incredible!! We went on several occasions and were usually served by a bartender who put a lot of time and care into making our drinks. They were expensive, but definitely worth it. The tapas and pizza from the bar were average. The breakfast was a bit strange, so we ended up eating elsewhere most mornings.

The restaurants near the hotel were terrible compared to food we ate in other parts of the city. There are several tapas places nearby, but their tapas seemed to be mostly small portions of cheap, frozen, fried foods. We asked the hotel bartender to recommend a few places in the neighbourhood, and we found that walking several blocks away from the square was the best way to find affordable, higher quality food.

The absolute best part of staying at the hotel was the location for New Year's Eve!!! There was a HUGE performance/display and fireworks near the fountains, just a 5 minute walk away from our room. There were thousands and thousands of people in attendance at the "street party", and the police closed all of the metro stations because they were completely mobbed. The streets were also closed, so taxis were not able to operate. As a result, many people were stuck walking a long way back to their hotel following the fireworks. But our hotel was SO close, we were able to avoid a huge hassle and sit in our room and watch the huge crowds celebrate and disperse. B-Hotel was the best possible location for our New Year's stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor facing the square. We stayed on the 2nd floor and the street noise wa...

Regarding the shower, we are aware of the liking situation and we are working on this. The system is being improved by adding doorstops in the junctures to avoid water dropping out of the shower. We are examining this in a few rooms so far, and we expect to have all showers fixed in a not distant future. We would like to apologize if this situation caused you a lot of trouble.

It is good to mention that we offer a wide breakfast selection with different foods including fresh fruits and juices, hot food, different breads, pastry, cured meats, sausages and more. Since we receive guests from all over the world is or duty to satisfy and fulfill their desires respecting their habits and customs.

We are delighted to know that you appreciated our bar and our staff there; they guarantee our guest`s contentment by furnishing them with above -and-beyond service to ensure memorable and genuine experience.

It makes us very happy to know you spent new year eve with us!, it was the first time that the city council celebrates New Year`s with an upscale celebration like this. Of course our guests are the most further advanced since they could lookout the fireworks celebration from our roof top terrace and rooms; they could also enjoy a special New Year`s eve dinner that we are planning to repeat next year.

Please be aware that if you have any other suggestion or just want to give us further feedback, feel free to contact us directly.
Once again, thank you for your kind words, and we are looking forward to welcoming you back at the B hotel!

All the best.
