I stayed here for a long weekend in July. The Medinaceli is right on the edge of the old town, a block or two away from the Rambla, on a square that isn't particularly beautiful but is almost on the waterfront, good for strolling or just watching the world go by. The room was a decent size and very comfortable and clean with a nice big bathroom, breakfast was excellent and the staff were helpful.

Staff are very friendly. English sometimes not so good, but always willing to help.
Room was exactly like in the picture. Hotel is located near the harbour on the corner of a nice square, two blocks from the Rambla and two blocks from the beautiful Placa Reial. There is a drawback however, the streets are noisy. Many hen-parte / stag night make sure the streets are very lively until late.
The aircon in the room is very effective in that you might want to shut it off and open the window to the balcony. But because of the noise in the street, that might not be a good plan. So, if you dont mind the noise, or the cold strong wind from the airco, this is a nice hotel.
Rooms can be located on the side of the sqaure, the side-street or the atrium. All have their advantages and disadvantages. Hotel staff are willing to accomodate your preference.
We booked (sept 2013), the hotel trough hotwire. That saved quite a bit compared to the expedia prices. It was listed as 3-star hotel in the port olympic barcelonetta area. Also check www.betterbidding.com for up-to-date descriptions.

I and my wife spent 4 nights in May in Barcellona.
The Medinaceli is perfectly located, close to La Rambla and to the harbor.
The room was big and clean. With a very big bathroom.
All quite comfortable. The price was good, because of some offer. But it looks like the offers are standard. Then it's very interesting.
Sure i suggest it if you want to visit Barcelona !

Location is good. Staff is friendly enough. Rooms are too dark, ceiling in the bathroom sometimes flaws. Very bad soundpeoofing. Breakfasts are not good enough. The plus is thet you can leave your luggage in a special room or print out something on the reception desk free of charge.

For 7 young girls looking for a party and cultured weekend away this hotel was perfect! Great location close to Les Rambles and metro station so we could get around other sites as well.. 20 min walk to the beach.. Clubs we went to were a little further afield but taxis are cheap so we just jumped in them.
Hotel rooms are nice, breakfast is basic but food out is cheap anyways so breakfast wasn't important for us.
One complaint was. one of our rooms that was on the 4th floor had a strong sewage smell each time we walked in.. Told reception and they did put some stuff in the pipes but didn't make much difference.. We were hardly in the rooms and only there for 3 nights so didn't make too much of a fuss!
Overal good and I would recommend!

Second time here for a one night stay before joining a ship. Staff were helpful, room good size and clean. Bathroom excellent. Location superb. OK not a social hotel, bar etc, but why would you need that with this location. Would stay here again. Good value for money
