Chic & Basic Lemon
Ranked #312 of 515 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 5 June 2013

We only stayed one night and arrived very late. The staff were friendly and the 24 hour reception good. The breakfast was very basic, continental bread roll and jam. The rooms were clean and had all the basics necessary, however ours was very smoky. An excellent facility of free luggage storage is provided after checkout so that you can go and explore.

If there's one thing anyone who has stayed in Hotel Marvi can agree on - it is the fact that this hotel is situated in a perfect location. The Universitat metro station is just right in front of the hotel and just a 5 minute walk would take you to Plaza Catalunya (base station for the hop-on hop-off buses) and the famous La Rambla.

The hotel staff were very helpful on accommodating us with all our queries and requests. The room we got on the 3rd floor was spacious enough for a couple. Some of the rooms don't have balconies so be sure to ask if you want one. There is not much street noise in the area so avoiding rooms with balconies should not be a problem for those light sleepers. The free breakfast was a disappointment as they only offer a single croissant, sliced fruits and small selection of biscuits.

Recommended for those who are looking for a comfortable place to stay that's not pricey yet situated in a perfect location.

Brilliantly located, so much in walking distance - 5 minutes from El Raval's bohemian restaurants and bars, 10 minutes from Gaudí-central on Passeig de Gràcia, and then 15 minutes from the sea!
Well equipped with TV and hair dryer, though you have to pay an extra 30€ deposit to use the safe. Breakfast was a bit basic, bread, fruit and juice, but it did the job.
Most of the staff were really friendly, happy to speak whatever language you wanted!
Room was basic, just needed a lick of paint and a bit of TLC - for the location and the price we were happy to use the room as a base to explore the streets of BCN.
And the WIFI facility is excellent, it allowed us to read the guidebook and then double check reviews and opening times (and public transport stikes) on the internet over breakfast.

Room Tip: Rooms out the back are probably much quieter.
