Great location and friendly staff”
Although I felt the hotel was a little on the pricey side, the location was great and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and tidy and the room was fairly large. My only criticism would be that there were no complimentary water or tea and coffee in the room which would have been a nice touch. At almost £200 for the one night I don’t think this is an unreasonable request. Otherwise very happy with the Stay.
Excellent Location and Staff. (Needs some Updates)”
This hotel always does it's best to fulfill special requests and for me I got a fantastic deal on 1 night. Would have extended longer if for the same price. The showers are great and the rooms on the top floor with Private terrace make Barcelona so exceptional. My biggest issue is that the 2 small beds look dated and are very uncomfortable for anyone 1.88cm and taller. A hotel of this caliber really should invest the money into modern nice beds, instead of Flat screen televisions that I would imagine less than 10 percent of guests use (seeing as the number of tourists who stay here). Beds are everything and this hotel would be a 10 with a proper update (furniture in room is NON-Function (what should be desk space is taken up by television and not proper desk chair in order to do work.)
everything is so old that it needs to get done. Cleaness wasn't that Good Breakfast is very poor and doesn't taste Good beds are uncomfterable there are no towels for the pool the welcome was Good
hotel del mar, barcelona”
overall fantastic hotel and location...in the middle of the most important attractions, restaurants, shopping, musuems, squares, and parks...next to the train, metro, and bus stations although you are in walking distance of most everything...near the marina and fine seafood restaurants...pharmacies and grocery stores around the hotel...the hotel del mar is quiet, well insulated, and noise free...it is one of the most impressive hotels and locations i have been associated with in my 38 years of european travels...i have no reason to market or promote this hotel as i have no financial interest or friends who do - it really is fantastic...
Excellent location, very friendly staff and very clean property”
I spent a week with my 12 year old son at the Del Mar Hotel and I was very pleased with the location and how clean the property was kept all the time. All the staff were very polite, friendly and very helpful. Only thing I would recommend to them is to add a tea/coffee service in the room; Unfortunately the coffee machine at the entrance of the buffet was making an awful drinks. I would like to say thank you to all the reception guys and cleaners. Will highly recommend this place to all the type of travellers. It’s exactly in between the Barceloneta beach, Gothyc quarter and an amazing Ciutadella Park. Underground, busses and train stations are all just around the building.
Great hotel, location, view, cleanliness except HVAC”
Everythjng was excellent including the staff! The location is near the beach and museums. The staff went out there way to answer any question including repeated questions. The only complaint was the HVAC being semi hi during the hottest two weeks of the season. So it may not be an issue. The vents are pointed to the wrong area so we moved the beds under the system since it was modular furniture. So possible five stars. I would try it again if I have the opportunity.
My kids and I love the beach and it was about a ten minute walk, which was perfect! The red tour bus had a stop about 5-7 minutes away, and not to mention the gothic area was also 5-10 minutes away! There was a cute spa that was 3-4 minutes away from the hotel called Estetica Del Born, Starbucks was an additional 3 minutes, La Luna was a favorite restaurant and then Palau Dalmases a flamenco place was also within 5-8 minutes away. Traveling with 2 young boys is challenging and I loved that I was able to spend the last two days close to the hotel but still enjoyed Barcelona!
Sisters with a baby”
Nous avions deux lits separés et mon bebe avait son lit et n'avions pas pris l'otion des petit-déj. A la reception il y avait un micro-ondes pour les biberons c'était top. Dans la chambre un frigo vide pour nos provisions. La chambre etait tres propre, c etait excellent pour le bébé qui marche a quatre pattes. L emplacement au top tout faire a pied c'est possible meme en poussette, mais bus, metro et taxis devant l hotel au cas ou. Plage,visite, shopping et meme resto vegan excellent en bas de l hotel (je conseille meme si je ne suis pas vegan).
A little gem ”
Arrived very early for checking and were in our room within an hour. The front desk staff are absolutely wonderful. The cleaning staff are very honest. My wife lost an earring and it was found and returned. Very thankful for that. The rooms are European size but we had a lovely Juliet balcony. The location is great. Bus stop outside. Return across the square. You can walk everywhere in complete safety. There are 100s of restaurants and bars within walking distance. We stayed 4 nights and had the most delightful time. The staff and the hotel are a little gem..thanks Del Mar
The location is excellent, with 10 minutes walk to the beach, 10 minutes walk to la rambla and 20 min walk to plc de Catalunya. We didn't stay much in the room but I haven't anything negative to say about the hotel. We were happy with it.
Great location, clean rooms.”
I wasn't expecting a lot from Hotel Del Mar but Was pleasantly surprised. Great location and with buses and metro stops within a 2 minute walk. Rooms were clean and modern, decent sized and balcony on to the street was a nice touch. Ten minutes walk to the beach, great restaurants nearby. Also 10-15 minutes walk from La Rambla. I have stayed in more luxurious hotels but for the location and price this is very good value. Only downside was reception staff who were sometimes unfriendly and also failed to book our taxi when requested.
Good Hotel For Price”
This was a good hotel for the price. The location was excellent, not too far from the Gotik and right on the edge of the Barceloneta neighborhood. An easy walk to the marina and beach. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, and I loved the balcony with plenty of room and a nice view. The building is fairly updated with elevators. The downsides would be that Parking is not included and cost 25 euros a day. The maids start cleaning at 9am and make noise moving around furniture that will wake you up if you're a late sleeper like me. There is no ice machine and the A.C. works but is not great. It is Europe of course and so it's just part of it I guess. It's certainly better than many hotels I've stayed in while traveling in Europe. I would stay there again.
lovely hotel, good service. great location. breakfast ok room 407 along with others on that section of the hotel have a lovely private roof terrace. could do with tea and coffee making facilities in room.
Great location- helpful staff”
Although our reservation was for Hotel Del Mar originally due to a reservations mistake we were booked to another hotel of the group-the Ciutadella Hotel- which was located less than 100m from there....so my comments will be for the hotel that we stayed. Since we had our own scedule we did not use the hotel's facilities so i can't make an opinion about them. Other than that our stay was excellent, the hotel offered us breakfast during our stay which wasn't included in our original reservation and both hotels location is great, almost next to the metro and buses and 10 minutes walk from barceloneta. The personnel was great and very helpful the room was very comfortable and daily cleaned and refreshed. It was also very well situated for night activities since the old town was just across the street. In overall we can say that Barcelona was a wonderful city certainly worth visiting and the hotel just made our visit even more enjoyable so we would definitely recommend this hotel.
Great Option for Beaches and Gothic”
The hotel is in a great location, right off the metro and bus lines. It is just in between the beach and the gothic quarter with tons of restaurants nearby. There are lots of shops in the gothic quarter as well. The staff were friendly and helpful. My Spanish is not the greatest so the fact they spoke English helped as well. The rooms were clean and spacious. I loved my stay.
Pleasant stay great location”
My stay was okay. It is a nice hotel. The kind of hotel where price and quality are in harmony. Don't expect a super large hotel with staff running around to make your stay nore pleasant. It's just a plain and simple one. With nice rooms and located nearby the beach, nice restaurants and parcs.
I have stayed 5 times in Barcelona, twice at this hotel and it is by far the best we have found in this price range. Great area for restaurants and getting to all the sights, very safe area. Rooms are large clean and quiet. Only things we found bad was very uncomfortable pillows and on first visit my daughters Ray ban sunglasses went missing from the room after room service , they were left on bed when we went out for an hour . This did put a bit of a bad feeling on our trip as I felt you really could not leave anything in room .
A tale of 2 hotels”
When we arrived at the Hotel Del Mar we were told upon arrival that due to a massive storm the night before there was a burst water pipe & this had flooded one of the hotels floors & ruined the rooms. With this they gave us a free upgrade to the 4* BC Colonial Hotel just around the corner. We had friends already staying at the Del Mar & they said that the hotel was good & clean & had no complaints. I found the staff very friendly for the brief moment I was there in the lobby & can also recommend the BC Colonial hotel as a good place to stay.
The lokation is perfect for a short staying in Barcelona. It is walkin distance to to the Rambla ( ten minites) and also to to the Gotic part of the city. La Ramblas, kathedral an many museums such as Picasso an others. You find metro stations close by in all directions and I recomend to by a card at the metro for the same number of days that you stay. Using the metroo sav a lot of time and it take all over the beutiful town i short time. Del Mar I like to add a plus or mayby upgrade to four star. Very nice service in reception and restaurant and cleaning girls.Del Mar is a very good place for the money and I will return for my next visit in Barcelona.
Hotel del Mar, Barcelona”
The Hotel del Mar is conveniently located within a very short walk of Barceloneta Metro station and the Estacio de Francia mailine station. (If coming from the airport you can take the mainline train as far as Sants and then change - just across the platform when I did it - for the terminus station) and Barceloneta Beach, the Museo de la Historia de Catalunya, the Aquarium, the port, the Barrio Gotico and restaurants in that area (the Ramblas being just beyond). It is an efficient, functional hotel - nothing spectacular, but comfortable and clean.
