“Great location but....................”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

This is a design hotel situated in the Eixample area of Barcelona not far from the Passeig de Gracia and La Pedrera etc etc. The young reception staff are great, very friendly and helpful, some of the best we've encountered in our travels. The room was small but comfortable although the cleaning wasn't quite up to scratch, dust on the floor, mould in the shower and a rather nasty design bathroom basin which didn't allow you to fill it with water for say, a shave. We stayed four nights and, up to the night before we left, we had nice little cotton rugs put next to the bed; however, on the last night, nothing. Breakfast is an outrageous price although when we arrived we were offered a special rate of 11 euros per person. Even at this price it wasn't worth it. In fact, we had our anniversary meal at the hotel one night and the food was really very average. We ordered a green salad with sundried tomatoes and parmesan for a starter and it arrived without the tomatoes, just fresh ones. The waitress tried to assure us they were sundried.....!! Some of the waiting staff were okay but there was one guy who was really quite rude. If you're booking, don't bother with the breakfast, there are lots of cafes very close by that will give much better options. Also, contrary to what reception may tell you, it's a full half hour walk to the Sagrada Familia, longer if if you want to amble. For us, this hotel didn't meet expectations which was disappointing for our special occasion.

Reviewed 5 June 2014

We recently spent 5 night in this lovely, small hotel located in the Eixample barrio of Barcelona. We chose it based on the reviews posted on TripAdvisor and most of what we read prior to arriving at the hotel proved to be true once we entered our room. The hotel’s biggest advantages are the location and the frontline staff. The Eixample is conveniently close to the very centre of Barcelona yet far enough to be relatively free of tourists. There are tons of wonderful restaurants and coffee shops in the area and everything is pretty much walking distance. The staff at the hotel cannot do enough for you and are happy to help you with whatever you need. The guestrooms in Granados 83 are rather small and compact – we had a double with a balcony and while it was surely adequate for two people it would be a stretch to call it large. The bathroom was lovely and it was equipped with a huge walk-in shower which was which was great for us but may pose a problem for those who expect a bath-tub in a 4s-star hotel. The main issue with the room was the relative lack of storage space – whoever designed the rooms did not expect that people would be staying there for more than 1-2 nights. The bathroom lacked a proper towel rack/rail which prevented us from reusing our towels and being environmentally friendly as there was no room to dry them. The housekeeping seems to be the biggest issue in the hotel as we received different levels of service every day – sometimes the room was spotless, sometimes barely cleaned at all – regardless whether there was a tip waiting for the housekeeper or not. There was a dirty glass on the table waiting to be cleaned for two days – in the end I just washed it myself which is fine by me but unacceptable in a god hotel. Sometimes we got two chocolates on out pillow, sometimes only one, sometimes none at all – again, fine if you never give any at all, unacceptable if there is a lack of consistency. Still, apart from patchy housekeeping all was great and the hotel remains highly recommended to anyone looking for a great place to stay in wonderful Barcelona.

Loved the avant-garde/slightly Bohemian feel to the hotel. Multi-national guest list while we were there. Excellent front desk service throughout (in several languages)
Urban hotel food selections. Very small rooms...but loved the modern wall hanging in our room.

the hotel has a rather dark design chic, it depends on your taste. however, rooms are clean and nice value.

important to highlight is the kindness of the staff: my wife fell ill and the staff was so supportive and helpful like family. a good place for bad times

A great hotel right in the centre of Barcelona. Staff were really helpful giving excellent restaurant recommendations and advice. The room itself was exactly as described, modern with a New York loft feel to it. Will most definitely be returning in the near future.

Great service from the stuff, helped us a lot with any question. Room was very clean and quiet. A lot of coffee shops and bakeries just under the hotel so you can get breakfast in 2€.
Walk distance from La Rambla and downtown. 2 minutes walk from bus/metro station.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that not on the main street

We stayed at Hotel Granados for four nights in early April. The hotel and rooms were great - clean, modern and very comfortable. As well, the front desk staff were very friendly and accomodating throughout our entire stay. The hotel is located in a charming neighborhood within walking distance to many major attractions and there is a train station just a few blocks away that can easily get you anywhere in the city. We did not have any meals at the hotel and the rooftop terrace was either closed or rented for private events when we were there, but it looked quite nice. Overall, we would recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Barcelona!
