Was first time when I had stay in Derby. I was tired when I get for check-in and I forgot my sunglasses on the reception desk, when I had ask if they found my sunglasses they answear no. The room has old furniture, the door from the bathroom was looking very bad, and if you keep open the wardrobe you can see the light from the bathroom. They where saying you receive complementary bottle of wine...forget about it! You should think twice before to choose Derby!!!

bell'ambiente con belle persone. si tratta di un buon hotel con camere ben rifinite e pulite. nelle vicinanze ci sono alcuni locali notturni, ma non creano alcun problema, è una zona tranquilla anche di notte. il prezzo della colazione è un po' costoso, ma in compenso il buffet è molto assortito. è un comodo punto d'appoggio sia per viaggi di lavoro che per vacanza.

To begin on a positive note, the hotel was clean and modern. If you're a fan of art deco, this is your place. However, the pool wasn't at this hotel, but at a hotel owned by this company, located across the street from Hotel Derby. The pool was quite small, and misrepresented in photographs. The staff at the reception desk were detached at best, lending to a bit of irony in the term "reception". As a final comment, the noise from other rooms/guests was extremely loud, particulary sound traveling through the bathrooms.

Stayed there for nearly a week. The staff had their own dedicated member, that helped us out with where to go, what to see and so on in a manner that we appreciated. It's a huge advantege when going to Barcelona, because "the commom man in the streets" has a poor english tongue.

This is a very nice hotel. If you're wondering why it's so cheap, it's because it's not a walk from the city center at all. It's a bus ride or a metro ride for sure. And it's a good 10 minute walk to the metro station. Not a big deal, if you want a nice hotel for cheap. This is definately a great place to stay. The neighborhood isn't bad, it's just that on a Sunday, absolutely nothing is open (including the nearest Metro) so you're kind of stranded. And the rest of the days, there's really nothing good to eat in the area and nowhere to go. The business center consists of a computer on a table behind the reception desk. And the people who worked there were just very rude. Not helpful, snobby and rude. On the plus side, the stuff in the minibar was reasonably priced. On the downside the TV didn't work. Someone was sent up to fix it, he flipped through the channels and then left. So, on a whole, if you need a nice hotel for cheap, this is a good choice.

il servizio e la sistemazione in stanza si è rivelato ottimo. Rispetto alla descrizione in internet del sito la collocazione dell'hotel si è rivelata un pò più distante dal centro: i dieci minuti in realtà devono essere riferiti all'uso di un mezzo di trasporto. Nel complesso però è ben situato in una zona accessibile ai mezzi pubblici a 5 minuti i bus e a 10 la metro. L'unico vero disguido incontrato è la poca insonorizzazione delle stanze.. per dormire bisogna avere un sonno di piombo perchè con la vita notturna spagnola tutta la notte è un grande via vai purtroppo condiviso in tutto il piano.

The lobby was very beautiful and the rooms okay, I expected a bit more luxury out of a 4 star. For example, they could not give us an iron to use which surprised me. I witnessed the staff being very rude to other guests and I felt I was treated below par of service several times. Be warned, breakfast is not included and they will charge 13 euro a person - not posted anywhere.

I'm very happy, because the choice was perfect.... The hotel is very nice, and the hotel's team was very kindness.... i had enjoining my holidays period..... I think that derby hotel is one of the better choice that i could find... The hotel is situated in the most exclusive zone of the barcelona, but at the same time is very closely to the city life centre...(with taxy you can spend around 3 euros to go in the catalunia place).... I think that i'll can be another time in the barcelona, and i think that my choice can be derby hotel...
