well worth the stay, staff were very helpul in all aspects,breakfasts were excellant and above all therooms were always clean and tidy, we stayed for four nights
- Free Wifi
I would say that hotel is almost 4 stars and much better than sometimes 4 star hotels. The location is just perfect - 2 blocks from metro. If you come from airport, I suggest to change in Sants Estacio. It is better than Passeig de Gracia because there is less to walk between the Renfe and metro. You will need 2 tickets to reach your final destination.
If you want to walk around a lot on foot, it is a perfect location to see different attractions of the town. Pl. Catalunia is in a half an hour walking distance, Barceloneta beach in about 1 hour.
In hotel everything looks new. The staff is polite and helpful. WiFi connection is good. Did not try the breakfast because there many nice places near by where to have the morning coffee. I would stay here again.
Stayed in Hotel Sagrada Familia in Spring 2012 with a friend, The hotel was spotless, the beds were very comfy, and the staff were friendly. It is a few minutes walk from the beautiful Sagrada Familia, and easy walking distance to the tourist buses. There are supermarkets, and small restaurants nearby for food. Las Ramblas is a taxi/bus journey away, and this is where it all happens re nightlife. If you want to stay slightly away from the craziness then this is the perfect hotel, but i think i would have preferred somewhere i could walk home to after the crazy nights out. Lovely hotel though.
Plus points: the hotel was scrupulously clean, the room was comfortable, and the staff helpful and the price was very reasonable.. We enjoyed the location, which was away from the main tourist centres (except for the Sagrada Familia). We liked being in a residential street, with simple bars and cafes used locals nearby. We walked into the centre of town each day, (it takes about 25 minutes). Negative points of the hotel were the size of the room (this didn't really bother us, as we didn't spend much time there, and it had all we needed) and the breakfast, which although there was a wide choice, was of mediocre quality.
The Hotel Sagrada Familia is very clean. The location is very convenient. The people working there are very friendly and helpful. And, in the summer, I'm afraid it would be VERY hot. By American standards, the air conditioning is rather inadequate. We stayed there early in May, and the AC never did much to cool down the room at night. As another viewer mentioned, a fan would have been helpful. If you're spending time in Barcelona in the spring, fall or winter, then the Hotel Sagrada Familia is an excellent lodging choice. If you're going to be there in the summer, I'd recommend staying someplace else.
We just spent 3 nights (29May-01Jun) at Hotel Sagrada Familia. It has good location, 2 blocks away from metro and the Sagrada Familia, many restaurants and shops nearby. Check in was smooth and good, reception staff is friendly and speak good at English, we were able to get our room at 11.30am at 7th floor. Room is spacious and clean with a terrace (for superior room), bath room is clean and spacious except the door knot nearly dropped off because the screw has dropped off.
But we we get in the room, it was like oven, so we thought it could be the hot weather, inform the staff and she said it could be due to the weather, would ask the technician to check so we left the air-con on and left for our tour at 1pm.
When we returned at 9pm, the room still like an oven, the terrace is cooler than the room, so we had to leave the terrace door open to let the cold air come in to the room. I went to the reception to check with them about the checking, the staff could not speak English and asked another staff to speak to me, then came one gentleman who asked me if I had the air-con setting done correctly. He then told me this is how the air-con function and there is nothing he could do, I asked for a fan but here is no fan in the hotel. And he repeated again "This is how the air-con work, and there is nothing he can do"; as the hotel is full, he could not change room for me.I gave up, went back to the room and finally at 11pm, the room temperature cool down. For 3 nights we had to do this, and worst the air-con is very noisy, so imagine how our sleep was....though the bed was good and comfortable.
Not sure anyone one this experience when staying there during hot weather or summer, room 702, or 703 which is facing the sun directly in day time.
