This is the third time we've stayed at the Granvia so they must be doing something right. The location is very good, the building is magnificent [if you like a bit of history] and the rear facing rooms are quiet. The higher you are the less you will hear the rumble of the Metro. Breakfast is OK but the I'd change the brand of Yogurt and bring in some Muesli. My only "complaint" would be that it is time to update the showers.

Gran Via is an old hotel, very good situated in Barcelona near central Placa Catalunya. Most touristic attractions can be reached on foot. Breakfast buffet is 10 Euro worth, if you like to eat more than an cookie and a coffee. You'll have a great stay in this charming hotel. But don't forget your earplugs. You'll hear everything from your neighbour's room. And please, if you need a pizza in the middle of the night at 3 am, don't shout it out loud. You'll wake the whole hotel. If you like to make noise - especially in the middle of the night - please choose an other hotel. If you are a quiet person, this is the right hotel for you.

Reasonably priced for this central location. Breakfast at £10 is pricey but quality & quantity was excellent. Lots of shops and good restaurants nearby. Only negative point is the rooms are small (clean,BBC world service TV, no kettle)and walls are thin. Back of hotel is quiet (traffic wise) but americans using ipads in their rooms to talk to relatives at 2am can be a nuisance!

This has been my fifth time in Barcelona and i was used to stay in another hotel but from next time on i'll choose this. Main quality is the silence and the quietness of the place, although few metres away from plaza de Catalunya. Staff is absolutely competent and reliable for any need. Noteworthy is the "Salon", located at 1st floor for customs and guests, which extends to an open air terrace. I strongly recommend it, mostly for singles or little groups.. Alessndro Romli

This is a lovely old hotel from a bygone era, very grand looking. Staff were very helpful, the public areas spacious and clean. A great position, right next to Passeig de Gracia metro. Plenty of good restaurants in the area. Our only criticism would be that we didn't think that the breakfast was worth 10 euro.

Comfortable and very well situated hotel: easy access from airport by "Aerobus", and right in the city centre. The hotel has charm because it is an old building with paintings on the walls and some old forniture in the public places. The furniture of the rooms is comfortable but may look a bit old fashioned.Some rooms are quieter than others.

The hotel is ok, old fashion. I have to complain about the booking: I had booked two triple rooms in May but when arrived they told me they can give me only one triple, one double, one single. They explained that so many families arrived. This caused me to stay alone in a very very little single room far from my wife and son.

The location of this hotel was perfect; directly in front of the metro stop and close to all the tourist attractions. Staff was knowledgeable and very helpful. Free internet access and the use of three computers made trip planning and keeping in touch much easier. Our room was cleaned every day, including fresh towels. Overall we were more than satisfied with the quality vs. price relationship. We would recommend this hotel to friends and family and when we return to Barcelona we plan on staying here again!

Excellent location, right in the center of Barcelona, next to Catalunya Square and Passage de Gracia, shopping streets and major sights. Everythings you need to see is within walking distance. The common area of the hotel is alright, my room (especially the bathroom) was in need of renovation. And one last thing, bring your earplugs, otherwise you will not be able to sleep a second, either from the street noise or from the noise your next-door neighbours are making. Breakfast was EUR 11 and nothing extraordinary. All in all, for a short stay in Barcelona the hotel is OK thanks mainly to its central location.

Barcelona is so cosmopolitan we were surprised. The hotel is just down the street from all the shopping and it's an easy hop onto Tour Buses.

This was the first trip for my husband and I to Barcelona. We thought the hotel Gran Via was an excellent place to stay and particularly enjoyed the room we were allocated as we had asked for a quiet room. We looked out over the beautiful courtyard at the back of the hotel. We liked our room and the hotel. It felt very much like a grand house in Barcelona and not a chain hotel which might have been any where in the world.

Our second time in barcelona; love the city. Just a two day stay, this time, in between two other legs of the journey. Gran Via was ok, but way under what we like, particularly in terms of quality of the beds. They were very sub-stantard, in our view. Otherwise, the facility felt tired, and in need of a makeover. Location is fine--easy enough to walk to the Sagrada Familia(a must see), and La Rambla.

This was my second time in Barcelona although the first time in this hotel. I had looked at various reviews of the hotel and noted that some were good whilst others were less so. For people looking for a modern plastic covered hotel, this is not for them; it is an old restored building, as clean and well decorated as is normal for these things. The fitting in my room were all in good functioning condition, hot water at all times and a good shower. The public rooms had antique furniture which was interesting. In this respect there was also plenty of "public space" including a large lounge which could not be said for the hotel I stayed in last year for twice the price. There were two desktop computers in the lounge as well as free wireless internet access. Turned out that this didn't work properly on the third floor where I was, but OK elsewhere. It took a few days before the staff acknowledged this. Pity, if they knew this, that they hadn't told me at the start, could be just my language problems. An excellent hotel in a very convenient position

At first glance the hotel looked a bit shabby on the outside but inside it was fine. The staff at the hotel were polite but a bit abrupt at times. The room was large, clean and comfortable and at the back of the hotel which is quiet(the front is quite noisy). We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as there are numerous cafes around the area which were very good. The hotel location was excellent - just a stone's throw from Placa de Catalunya plus a metro station at the end of the street. Overall I would recommend the Gran Via mainly for it's location.

The location of Granvia hotel is excellent. Extremely central with acces to many tourist attractions as well as public transportation. The room was not as nice as in the pictures on their website, but overall it was ok. We asked for a room with balcony when we made the reservation and kindly asked it again to the receptionist when we got there, but they did not care about this request. I found that a bit annoying. The breakfast was good. Granvia is a very good choice if you are looking for a central hotel but you don't want to spend a lot of money on accomodation.

Hotel perfetto come base per stare a Barcellona. La posizione è ottimale, circa 200m da Plaza Catalunya e solo 50m da Passeig de Gracia. Le camere non sono molto spaziose (e i bagni privi di bidet) ma pulite e silenziose. Anche il letto è un po' più corto e più stretto di un normale matrimoniale. Onesti i prezzi del frigobar. Il personale è abbastanza cortese anche se non propriamente espansivo. Bisogna specificare alla prenotazione se si desidera un letto matrimoniale altrimenti vi assegnano una doppia con letti songoli. Non abbiamo usufruito della colazione in hotel perchè cara (10€) e perchè nei dintorni ci sono parecchie caffetterie doce fare buone colazioni spendendo un terzo. La posizione dell'albergo fa si che sia abbastanza tranquillo poichè la Gran Via non è molto trafficata di notte ma assolutamente sicuro anche di notte perchè molto centrale. Comoda la vicinanza a Plaza Catalunya poichè da lì partono i bus turistici scoperti.

The Grand Via is in the best location for touring BCN. We stayed in an enormous triple room (#117)and enjoyed the parlour with internet desks and outdoor terrace every day. The staff was pleasant. We did not eat breakfast in the dining room but it looked lovely. I had tried to reserve directly to take advantage of the Rick Steves discount but was told the hotel was full, however I could reserve through Venere. Thanks! It was a great experience. The only slight negative was that the beds were very small and low.

Great location, which is about the only positive comment to be made, other than that there was access to internet for free. Staff was MOST unhelpful in making suggestions, giving directions to places, etc. In adition, we were overcharged by about 7 euros by the taxi from the airport. When I asked the staff if that was a normal fee, they affirmed (it clearly was not). Despite the fact that we were on a busy street with absolutely no need to phone for a cab, the staff was isnsistent upon call taxis (for which the driver added a 3 euro fee, I assume to be "shared"). Spanish breakfasts are not consistent with my preferences, but nevertheless, the brekfast was only slightly adequate. All in all, other than a good location, this hotel is not friendly and is overpriced.

Hotel is a 19th century palace. Lobby and stairwell are beautiful, but sounds echo and no matter where your room is you risk being woken-up by noises. I didn't mind, it made me get up and at it quicker. Rooms are very small, small double bed, but clean, bathroom sparkled, hair dryer provided. Two men, especially one in day time, are nasty, don't like to answer questions, but there's a public info booth just up the street. The breakfast I thought was free but they charged my 8 euros, but it was a great meal served in a beautiful dining room. The location is excellent, at the top of La Rambla and by upscale shopping/restaurants of Gracia. If drive, can park underground near hotel off of Gran Via. For 90 Euro, this is an incredible value despite the small imperfections.

The Hotel Gran Via is quite comfortable and a good value. The buffet breakfast is very good, and well worth the price of 8 euros. The second floor salon and interior courtyard are a wonderful oasis in the midst of busy Barcelona. Too bad breakfast is not served in the courtyard in good weather. The hotel's location is excellent -- easy to get to everything, Metro stop half a block away. I had a rear room, and it was very quiet, the A/C worked well, and I was quite comfortable there. I would stay there again without hesitation.

Barcelona is an expensive city and the Gran Via, while not a bargain in other cities, is a bargain in Barcelona. It is close to the airport bus, and the main plaza, shopping, and the metro. Good deal.

Beautiful hotel but on a busy street so get a courtyard room for quiet sleeping. Excellent quality and variety for breakfast but quantity needs a boost. Very polite and helpful staff. Hotel of this calibre should be using electronic door locks.

I left my home and car keys in the hotel and asked that they be send to my home when I returned from Europe. Seve days after the request, and still no keys. Very poor customer service.

Our stay in Barcelona was made very enjoyable because of this hotel. The staff could comunicate in English and were very helpful. The location was excellent, close enough to everything, but not in the middle of all the noise.

Excellent central location - 2 mins from Catalunya Square. The room was small but fine for a weekend and the air conditioning soon cooled it. There is a lovely sunny patio behind the hotel on the first floor. Breakfast was 8 euros for a magnificent spread.

A nice central hotel but surprisingly quiet location. Could be a problem with noise from room to room if you had noisy neighbours. Reception area a bit tatty but rooms OK. Would stay there again with no hesitation.

A great location! I was able to take the Aerobus from the airport to Plaza de Catalunya, and the hotel is a block or two away. A Metro stop just outside the front doors of the hotel make it very accessible. Ear plugs are recommended as noise seems to travel far and wide - but don't let that steer you away from this hotel.

Excellent central accomodation, very near to metro and just 5 minutes from Plaza Catalunya where airport bus stops; also excellent Tapas bar just around the corner! Hotel has beautiful, traditionally decorated/furnished 'salon'with t.v. ,grand piano and computers with internet access, and very good breakfast buffet. Grumbles: Price quoted stated 'without breakfast', at check-in told it was included, then bill itemised breakfast separately, but overall total was about the same as quoted, but obviously I could have saved money if I had eaten breakfast out. ALSO hotel charges extra for room safe key (2.50 euros per day) which has to be paid in cash at end of stay - I think this should be included in room charge.

Excellent location and quality for this price. Fatal TV selection. Nothing interesting in English. However, this is typical for all Barcelona hotels, unfortunately.

This was my third stay in Barcelona, and I found the hotel perfect for people who want to discover Barcelona. The situation is perfectly in the center, there are 2/3 metro lines just a few meters away, and the airportbus stop is 2 minutes walking distance. La Rambla is also just 5 minutes. About the hotel, the breakfast was quite correct and the rooms are clean. Just one thing : don't except the service to be friendly, but by experience I can tell that this is one of the characteristics of a very touristic place as Barcelona is. Well, a good address to keep in mind in Barcelona....

An excellent location. A little old fashioned. I was lucky to have a room with a balcony overlooking the terrace. The only problem could have been noise from the next door room. I would go back without hesitation.

Very good location right in the centre. Five minutes away from the Tourist bus and two minutes away from the metro. Only complaint was that the lift was not working for three out of our five days stay. My 78 year old mother found it difficult walking up the stairs to the third floor.I would stay again.

Generally a great hotel in which I had a very pleasant stay (also because my room had its windows to the backyard, not to the big and probably quite noisy street). Only negative factor: A balcony door that could not be closed. Even though addressing the problem to the reception two times, there hasn't been any repair until I left the hotel, and my room was basically open all the time.
