Our stay was very pleasant. We had a nice, quiet, comfortable room. The staff is very helpful. Great location - walking distance to Sagrada Familia. Note that street-facing rooms will have some traffic noise, so request a room in back if you prefer quiet. Fragrance-sensitive travelers can ask for rooms to be cleaned with scent-free products. They were happy to do this for us. Also, the windows are openable. (But be aware that Barcelona is a perfume-heavy city). We highly recommend this hotel and plan to return.
Excellent with good service”
I would strongly recommend this hotel for shoppers in Barcelona due to it's prime location (next to metro and main shopping stretch). The hotel staff is helpful and flexible in terms of allowing early check-in (my flight landed at 8 am)etc. Value for money.
A nice hotel with a convenient location”
the actual hotel is a decent hotel stay at with nice interior decor. the hotel itself was very clean and we were quite impressed with the cleanliness of the room we were given. the room's balcony had a nice view of the surrounding streets too which was pleasant to look at. however, we found the room small for a couple with 2 suitcases and 2 carry-on bags. the hotel's location was convenient with a city tour bus stop just around the corner from the hotel. this made it very convenient for us to see the many different sites and attractions of the city. many shops such as chanel and lv were just around the corner from the hotel too which would make shoppers happy. we didn't eat at the hotel so i rated the hotel's food/dining 3 out of 5. we were happy with our stay at the actual hotel.
Great location close to all bus routes and train routes. Two iconic Barcelona sites just down the road. The hotel was clean, friendly staff, air con, free safe and lifts. My only grumble was don't bother with a room with a view. We paid extra and looked out onto a side of a modern hotel block. But there are no views. No parks or open spaces near this hotel. Just get a standard room. Plenty big enough and go for a high floor as it's on a major road.
Great location nice staff”
The hotel is well positioned with the metro station on your door step, the accommodation was clean and the beds were comfy the staff were very polite and helpful and there is a bag service so you can travel around Barcelona on your last day without carrying your bags. The breakfast was nice and plentiful. All in all worth the money we paid and would use again.
Stylish hotel in great area”
The hotel has clean, fresh and stylish rooms. It is located in a great area, with easy access to the airport (4 stations with the train and a few minutes walk). Metro station located just around the corner. Walking distance to Casa Mila and Casa Battlo, whic hare located on a nice and posh shopping street.Just a few metro stations or a 20 min walk to Las Ramblas, old town etc. An environment that felt safe at night. The only thing I missed was a mini mart where we could buy water etc. It was good then that the snacks and drinks in the room had surprisingly reasonable prices.
Okay nothing special”
This hotel was kind of bland. For a lot less we stayed our first night the hotel Praktik which was so cute and modern, and just lovely. They didn't have a room for our second night so we switched to Actual which cost a bit more. And it was just so boring, the room was really small, and it lacked the charm of Praktik. But with that said, the location was great and the front desk staff was really helpful. It was a clean and functional hotel, and even though the price was a lot in my opinion for what you got, I would recommend it if you can't find something cheaper.
Affordable room in a high end area”
The hotel is located in a high end shopping area and it is easily accessible by train. From airport, take the Renfe train from T2 and you can get off at Passeig de Gracia without changing train. It takes about 15 mins walk from there. The closest metro station is Diagonal, which is only about 5 minutes walk as it is just around the corner. The hotel room has a nice setting and I got a room at the back with no view, which is fine by me since I requested a quiet room. It's easy to go around given the location near the metro station. I think I might return to this hotel. There's one staff who was particularly helpful to me on the day I checked out. He helped me with my luggage and told the taxi driver of my destination. I really appreciate his genuineness.
Second stay at this hotel confirmed our impression from 3 years ago”
Great location, friendly helpful staff, clean spacious, quiet rooms and good breakfast options. Will be staying there again when we next visit Barcelona
We came into Hotel about 9:00 AM and they held our luggage for us while we went to get on the Hop On/Hop Off Bus just a couple of blocks away on Gracia. We walked back from Sagrada Familia which took us about 25 minutes and they had already taken our bags up to our room. Nice little Continental Breakfast with fruits, meats, cheeses, yogurt, nuts, breads, and pastries. Tea and coffee available. Saw several folks with Lattes, but not sure if they had to pay for them or not. When we left the next morning, the staff carried our luggage to the Taxi area down the street. Overall a great location and great stay.
location is excellent, so is the room”
I stayed in Actual Hotel for two days with my sister. We enjoyed and liked our room very much and the fact that the hotel is in the heart of city beamed us double up.. travelling to the places of interest was within minutes... Two thumbs up!!!
nice beds, clean, good Internet, centrally located”
We liked the hotel and had a nice stay. Staff were pleasant. beds were good and the room clean. Internet worked well. Our only complaint was not with the hotel, but with the area. There were not all that many lower-cost eateries in the area as the hotel is located in a high-price fashion area.
Great hotel and service with a smile”
I would defiantly stay there again if I went back to Barcelona.
very pleased with the hotel”
very good location, very good price. very close to metro and the place feels really safe. there are convenience shops nearby behind the hotel.
Hotel is in the center of everything. A short walk to the Ramblas. Great dining and shopping nearby. The street was quiet. The room was modern and very clean. The hotel staff were very friendly. Highly recommended.
You're right at the corner of all the action. We had a nice sitting area and small balcony. If noise bothers you you do hear the rumble of the subway. They did a good job of sealing out street noise. Our room was an Superior double on 2nd floor. Fun for 1 night. Reviews look like higher floors were better. No bar was open in the hotel.
In a safe and swanky part of town. Prada, Gucci, etc. we're all within walking distance. Placa Catalunya was about a 15 minute walk. The triple room is actually a double with a bunk bed. Very modern but our sink was clogged the whole time. Annoying. Nevertheless, I'd still recommend this hotel.
Right around the corner fem La Pedrera, this smart efficient 3 star hotel was quite a find. We got upgraded to a suite on arrival which had a little sitting area which overlooked Passeig de Gracia. Efficient service getting us a cab early in the morning. We stayed one night while transiting out of Spain.
Staff was roude, hotel was modern but the they used blankets instead of duvet. We stayed only for one night as there was no hotel available in Barcelona due to football match, and we had a flight in the morning. Average hotel.
I enjoyed my stay at Actual Hotel with its friendly staff, clean rooms and excellent location
