Our room was very clean and quiet, enough room for 2 people (considering the average size of hotels in the area), great shower pressure, comfy beds.

    More about Bcn Urbany Hotels Gran Ducat

    In a lively spot near Placa Catalunya, the location of this property suits people who want to be in the middle of the action. It would be difficult to get closer to Placa Catalunya since the Bcn Urbany Hotels Gran Ducat is only a few steps away from the crowds, street performers, and general hysteria that is Barcelona's central hub. Occupying a 19th century building, the property has been completely refurbished to reflect a functional, modern aesthetic with Wi-Fi Internet access and a few computers in the lobby for those without laptops. Everything is catered for in this location. Las Ramblas is just across the plaza, department stores are opposite the hotel, and there are airport and tourist buses departing just meters from the front door.

    nice value for money hotel”

    good location, clean room, excellent staff

    Gran ducat offers the right service and ample room size. Definitely value for money since it is centrally located and all the best shopping and dining areas are well within a 10 min walk from the hotel. They have friendly staff who can suggest all the must see locations in Barcelona as well as the best routes to take to get there. This hotel is a stop and go type of hotel - I wont recommend it for couples on a honeymoon. But overall I am happy with the hotel and will recommend it to all my friends.

    They said the Gran Ducat under renovation, hence transferred me to another hotel which is near to Universitat Metro Station, in which I found that the location not as good as Gran Ducat which very close to Metro Catalunya and shopping mall. Anyhow, the reception staff was very friendly. Allow me to check in early around 10am.

    Highly recommendable ”

    The place was clean and tidy. The size of the room was actually quite bigger than my expectation. Actually i worried a bit before staying due to the reviews saying it might be a bit noisy as it’s just at the center of Barcelona but the sound from the outside was not much and affordable. Most of all, just 2 hours before checking out time, i had a medical emergency situation and I had to go to emergency center. As soon as we informed our situation to the receptionist, she postponed the checking out time till 2pm, so that we could have enough time to go to the hospital and come back to pack our luggage. Thanks to her, we managed everything so well and was able to check out without any charge. I was so glad to stay at this hotel. When i comeback to Barcelona later, i would love to stay in this hotel again and again. Highly recommendable.

    The hotel has central location to the best sights in Barcelona and bus stop Hop-on-Hop-off bus for further sight-seeing. The room was small but adequate and clean. Value for money.The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this hotel to travelers on a budget as great choice.

    The staff here are fantastic,really helpful and very friendly.The hotel is really well located if you want to be near the Rambla but not right on it,the breakfast was very nice and a great price of only 9.90euros.I have only one thing to say in a negative sense and that is it's a very noisy hotel and this is only because there are tiles in the corridors that echo the sound,I found it very difficult to sleep,which is a shame because this otherwise is a fantastic place.

    Convenient Location ”

    The location is convenient to Plaza Catalunya where most tours start.

    The location was good - we could walk to the Gothic area and to where the tours (Hop-on Hop off buses and other tours) started. Lots of eateries around - Starbucks, MacDonald, local bars and restaurants, etc. A short ride to the airport by taxi. Cost us 42EUR - the driver claimed that there is surcharge for weekend and also an airport taxi. The hotel staff told us that it would only cost 35EUR. Not sure if the taxi driver ripped us off but we weren't about to get upset over 7EUR Staff were friendly and helpful. The standard of English was good. The room was clean and good size for the price we paid. The only negative is that they use a locker system to store your luggage if you arrive early or need to store it on the day of departure. Each locker costed 2EUR - not much but would be nice gesture to have free storage.

    Holiday in Spain”

    location , wifi, friendly and English speaking staff

    Location is key for this hotel. If you are seeking for a central hotel then this is the one. However, room comfort could be a problem if room size is one of your key indicator, standard room are 13sqm while deluxe room are 16sqm. It could be a problem opening your luggage. The rest about the room are pretty basic but decent. Staff are english speaking and are very friendly. Overall hotel stay was good and hotel is not only near Gran Via or Gracia but also near to 24H mart, metro and also a few pretty decent restaurants as well as Mac, BK and KFC if you fancy some American comfort.

    Small room with great location”

    Location was great - very close to the Plaza Catalunya and airport bus stop. Room was quite tiny but had a large balcony with outdoor seating. Perhaps it would have been better for the balcony to be converted into room space instead. We had difficulty finding an area in the room for our large suitcase. Disappointed that we had to pay to use the lockers to deposit our luggages after check out as we had expected to be able to leave our luggages in a storage room for free, as with most hotels in Europe.

    the location of the hotel is great, just several minutes walk from the plaza catalunya which the airport bus is stopped at the plaza. also, it is quite convenient to take the metro and bus from the plaza. it is great that free wifi is available in the room. on the other hand, a big supermarket is locating opposite to the hotel. it is the advantage of buying daily commodity. in addition, the restaurant which locating opposite to the hotel is good. however, it is not fair for me that i've booked two double rooms for three persons. but when i checked in the hotel, only one double room provided for us while the other one is only a single room. but charged me the same price! (it may be the staff found that we only have 3 persons and save their resource). and also, only one staff work in the reception which you may need to queue up for a long time at the small lobby for checking-in/out or asking question. on the other hand, it is noisy by the metro at night. furthermore, the tissue did not refill while the housekeeping refilled the toilet paper only.

    Central location in Barcelona, friendliness of the reception staff

    Previous revieuws warned me in advance about the noise from the subway. The rumors are true, but as my room was on the 4th floor, the noise from the subway was really acceptable and I slept mostly through it. I didn't use the breakfast in this hotel, but the breakfast room on the first floor looks adequate. My room with bathroom was very small, but clean and decent, and even offer free Wifi Internet services. The reception staff speaks English very well and was helpful in storing my luggage after check-out for some hours, and finding the best way to the airport.

    Simple Eurpean room, convenient location across from metro and easily walkable to many things. ”

    Because of its close location to the metro, you feel like the vibrations and sounds constantly during its hours of operation. We went to bed late so it didn’t really bother us, but it did wake me up early every morning...so if you are a light sleeper this may be something you want to consider. Other than that we didn’t have any complaints. We only used the room as a place to sleep for 2 days and didn’t require much.

    Location !!”

    Location , Staff Performance

    Location is PERFECT !! You can basically get what you want around the hotel . McDonald's & a very nice and affordable cafe & a mini market can be found just a few doors away from the hotel . You can reach the hotel at the Metro Station "Catalunya" , it's a very huge area around Catalunya , but don't worry , you just need to hunt for Apple Store , make sure Apple Store must be at your righ hand side , the hotel is at the same side . It's also a great location for shopping , you can basically found all the branded stuff around Catalunya , but do bare in mind most of the shops closes at 10pm . Between if you are travelling back by Air and heading to the airport , either Terminal 1 or Terminal 2 , don't worry , there will be a bus stop just a few steps away from the hotel , goes direct to the airport with just 5.99 Euro , if you missed the bus , no worry , the next bus will come every 15 mins once . Best still , the bus comes with FREE WIFI . The room comes with only very basic needs as they do not supply fridge. In room WIFI speed is average for some emails downloading but as for big files , you might need a very long downloading time .Staff are very helpful in advicing us on our needs .
