“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

VALUE FOR MONEY

Last summer my family of five members went on a 7-day short vacation to some countries in Europe. Amongst the places we visited was Barcelona in Spain where we stayed for 2 nights in Petit Palace Museum Hotel .

When we arrived, the check-in staff told us that due to their error by overbooking the hotel and thus not having a vacant room for us, they informed us that they had arranged a sister hotel of theirs about 3km away which was closer to the city. Transport was arranged by the hotel to the other hotel which was Petit Palace Museum Hotel. Although the new hotel that we arrived in was much more exclusive and a 4-star we did not have to pay any difference in costing.

Here , the check-in staff was efficient in checking us in fast and also giving us added information about the local attractions, opening times and the means of transportation to and from the sights. The hotel had free wifi and was in a very convenient location especially for the train service which we depended on. The overall cleanliness of the hotel was good with fluent English speaking staff to our assistance when we needed it. They even had a variety of breakfast menus to cater to different people from different regions .


Overall I would recommend this hotel as it’s value for money .

Facilities in room were fine for a biz trip - and laptop provided for use too, so could have saved myself the job of carrying mine with me [had I known].

Didn't do breakfast there so can't comment on that, but facilities in the lobby etc were not much in evidence; you wouldn't bother arranging to meet people there.

Location reasonably central, to the north-west of Plaça de Catalunya which was equally handy for work and play with good bars and restaurants in the area . No view, but wasn't in the room much anyway.

Super location, central and easy walking distance to major boulevards and transportation. Rooms are small but comfortable, bathrooms are modern and well appointed. I was surprised that the lobby bar, which looked inviting was not open, nor was even ice available Sunday and Monday. All thought advertised as a High Tech hotel Wi-Fi was lost 2 of the 3 nights we were there, very disappointing. But I would stay here again because of the great location.

This was a late booking for a work-based trip and #I was amazed to even get a hotel in Barca during VMWorld week.

There are at least three Petit Palace hotels in the city, so make sure you tell your driver which one. I ended up doing a 15 minute search at 10#:30 at night to find my Museum version.

Reception were wonderful, no hassle at all and I was booked in and sent on my way with no problem. Reception decor was as good as you'd expect.

The room was pretty standard 'boutiquey' for the current trend. Clean with all the usual trimmings. Odd that I had a laptop but no tea/coffee stuff. Well appointed wet room with a large shower stall and reasonable toiletries. TV was cool but as I was hardly in the room remained unwatched except for news and weather.

Breakfast was ok but a bit 'production line'. It's Spain, so the coffee had a life of its own.

All in all it was a good experience, the staff were helpful and friendly. Definitely worth considering for a holiday/tourist break as the hotel is fairly central and most of the 'good stuff' is in walking distance or a short cab ride away.

On the negative side, rear rooms have a nice view of a wall!

Room Tip: Rear rooms are bereft of any view, front rooms are noisier.

We spent a weekend here in October. The location of the hotel is great, very central for all of Barcelona. Some great bars, restaurants & metro all within walking distance.
We did not eat in the hotel so unable to pass comment on this aspect.
The staff were professional.
I did find both the public area & room quite dark, and the bedroom furniture basic, this of course my personal opinion.
All in all a good base for a city centre hotel.

The hotel is centrally located. Very near all the tourist areas. The staff is very friendly.The view from the rooms is nothing much. Having said that the rooms are very clean and apper quite spacious. The breakfast room is in the basement and the service for such a hotel is acceptable.

Room Tip: All rooms are more or less same.

I'll preface this by saying I've travelled all over the world.

This is truly a slam hole.

The carpets throughout the hotel are more stained than not and the entire place smells like a chicken pen with a heavy serving of dirty socks (excluding the lobby). Our room had stains of all colors all over the walls, carpets, and furniture. "420" was written clearly on the wall and not removed. A full circle cigarette burn in the cloth headboard was covered up by a pillow. The sink pipes leaked heavily all over the bathroom floor when in use. Stains in the bath tubs and a coin sized hole in the bathroom floor were just a few of the highlights of my second room (including the smells and stains), which I requested after the first room exhibited the aforementioned shortcomings.

I brought the manager up to the room to show her all of the filth and she asked me to leave after I demanded a refund (which I did get). As we were leaving we happened to witness the cleaning staff cleaning a room. She had a large spray bottle full of scented spray in which she was spraying all over the room. Hilarious, yet sadly pathetic. The only things that would help this place is pack of matches and large drum of gasoline.

*Be aware that there is a Petit Palace Barcelona as well* which we toured and it is the same filth hole dump that the Petit Palace Museum is (our travel agent tried to relocate us there after the described incident).

We were able to find another hotel, Hotel Roger de Lluria, which is directly across the street from the Petit Palace Barcelona and quite nice for a reasonable price of 200 Euros/night. Furthermore, there is not a shortage of fine hotels in Barcelona. After our experience, we noticed plenty of nice places to stay.

Room Tip: Hotel Roger De Lluria. Great staff, nice rooms, great location.
