“Great Hotel”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Excellent choice for a hotel on budget. Very clean and comfortable room with minimal decoration that certainly does not annoy you. Ideal location (opposite Picasso Museum) with many choices of restaurants,cafes and shops. The hotel staff was very polite and helpful as well. I particularly liked the large map stand next to the reception desk, where you could organize your daily explorations in the lovely city of Barcelona.I highly recommend it!!!

I stayed in this hotel with a small group of friends and it was just perfect. Loved especially the roof top pool which was lovely to hang out by, and the fridges of complimentary bottled water on each floor. Didn't have food so can't comment on that, but location is fantastic. Born is a very cool district, and hotel is on street with lovely bars, restaurants and couple of vintage shops. Staff very helpful too. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed here two years ago, and was very content. This time we were given a room with a view out to some sort of really narrow backyard, looking more like an old elevator shaft. And they took the same price for this room as they did for the ones with a street view. Scandalous!

I would in fact recommend this hotel, but just make sure you avoid these rooms

Situated in the best neighborhood of the town, Hotel Ciutat de Barcelona was the best value for money hotel to choose, especially during a tourist sinking period, in the middle of July. Clean rooms, minimal decoration, excellent services and many surprises during our stay made our holiday unique. Free bottled still water offered in a daily basis and free WiFi were more than convenient, while there was always a kind person in the reception, willing to offer information!

A gem of a hotel.
I booked this as my husband travels to Barcelona quiet a bit and really wanted to stay away from La Rambles (obvious choice to stay?)....Found this on line for us three. Close to Picasso Museum, Gothic Quarter, main train station, metro and best of all....bars/restaurants in abundance...FAB...FAB.....FAB
The three of us stayed here and had three single beds that pretty much filled one side of the bedroom but very comfortable and clean. The shower room was modern and nearly as big as our bedroom which was brilliant. Great roof top deck and pool area especially for young kids as not too deep. The views from the roof deck are great. Breakfast was well prepared and best of all friendly staff everywhere. Husband has stayed on for another night (Business) lucky guy.

Room Tip: Room 214 was fantastic...

As many have said already, small but comfortable rooms, very clean and serviced to a high standard daily, excellent location for sightseeing with loads of alleyways to shop in and explore. The staff were very friendly and the free water is a lovely touch after a hard days walk in the heat. The plunge pool is nice to soak in but can get busy, which is fair enough as it's a small area and many guests might want to take advantage of the pool too. Lovely views of the night sky on the terrace and one night we even had a snack dinner and some drinks here. There are also lots of places to eat and drink nearby to a very high standard. Would definitely recommend staying here.

This hotel is right at the center, about 4 minutes walk from the train station Jaume I and walking distance to the cathedral and many near by sites.

It has great roof top terrace with pool, in which you can relax in the evening after touring the city all day long.

There are many coffee shops and bars within 5 minutes walk radius as well ( take advantage of that).

The room was quiet and at the right size and very clean, good value for the price.
They also provide free water bottles to the guests.

The only thing that I would change is the WiFi, which was free but very slow.

We enjoyed staying here, will come back again.
