1.) Full amount for complete stay to be paid with Check-in is unusual. 2.) The quietness of the rooms is poor, walls are very thin and the water from the showers and toilets above is very loud in the wall-drains. 3.) The room rates are slightly too high compared to the product.

Hotel Ronda was extremely noisy at night. There were many students staying there, taking classes nearby. The hotel was not listed as a hostel and had i known there would be many groups of teens, i would not have stayed there. The room was so small, it could not accomodate a couple moderate size suitcases, two people could not pass each other. The bathroom was equally small. Our room was not cleaned until 5:30pm.

We only stayed one night, the crew acted like we were long time friends. The only drawback was that cab drivers didn't seem to know where the hotel was. Overall the stay was very pleasant and we would do it again. chuck

the room was much too small and when I asked for a larger room aftewr having spent a lot of money for just 2 nights I was told that the cleaning lady hadn´t cleaned the other rooms yet and this was 22.00 hrs so when do the cleaning ladies clean !!!! I was told the following morning I wou7ld have a new room. I asked two different receptionists and was told that they would move my baggage into a larger room but it was never done. I am not at all happy and will never stay there again. I have to go to Barcelona every weekend and travel from the south of Spain but I will not be staying in the Ronda any more.

The hotel is in the centre of the city, but in a very poor, degraded area. The staff was not very welcoming nor particularly helpful, and the bathroom in the room was dirty and even after the cleaners had gone in the following day it remained in the same condition. For the 60 euros a night that this cost (+10 euros a day parking), we were not satifsfied with the experience.

I cannot understand how this hotel got 3 stars on the first place. I have been to hostels that have been better than this hotel and definitely cleaner. The toilet had the "disinfect anted" sign on it, but when i checked it was dirty: it had sh.t marks all over. I did not want to seat on it as for sure it was full of germs. Also my sheets had a hole on them and in the closet there was only one blanket and one pillow available and it was a 2 single-beds room. It was cold during the night and my brother let the blanket to me and he got frozen. What kind of 3 stars hotel is this?!? They were also cheap on the soap bars and toilet paper!!!Ok, the price was low and even if in internet had written that it was a hostel i might would still choose to go due to the price, but it would be my choice and i would at least had known what to expect.

I saw some negative comments about Hotel Ronda, but I was perfectly happy with the place. The off-night rate was reasonable and I got a good, solid room for the money. It was a little noisy (wood floors, thin walls), but there wasn't much going on to bother me so that was fine. While I didn't investigate this in advance, it turned out to have incredibly easy access to the airport via bus and easy walking access to some prime Barcelona avenues.

Nice hotel for a nice price. Very clean. It has only one disadvantage. Breakfast is available but not very tasty en very expensive (€10 per person).Better take breakfast in a local bar. Personnel is friendly but they could have a better look at the people entry of the hotel. One could enter the hotel and not been recognized. So, everyone not registered could go inside and won't be noticed by the staff.

We were told that cats were allowed online (a mistake), and when we showed up with our cat there was an awkward moment. Eventually, we agreed that they'd let us stay "for now" and we'd look for alternate accommodation. When we found alternate accommodation and tried to check out 3 days early (per their original request), they insisted on charging us for the 3 nights that we did not stay there. The double room was quaint, but tiny. The front desk service was good, but the owner of the hotel was persistently contradictory. We ended up filing a claim against the credit card company requesting a refund since the hotel refused. In addition, a group of approximately 20 young people (age 13-15) showed up and the quality of the walls was immediately apparent since we could hear everything from our room. On the last day of our stay, when we were checking out with 6 bags from the top floor, the elevator was broken.

Were woken by drilling and hammering outside our window on 1st morning due to construction work taking place at hotel. After complaining we were moved to another room which was better, however on 2nd morning repairs started on the building in front! Room was basic, but very clean, beds with foam mattresses, little wardrobe space,thin walls, but shower was excellent. Hotel staff were predominantly Oriental and particularly unfriendly in the restaurant at breakfast. We went at beg. of March and there were a lot of other young couples there. The location of hotel is in a side street which was very noisy of an evening until the very small hours! It was close to the Metro, walking distance to Las Ramblas/Plaza Catalunya and a variety of nearby bars, restaurants to choose from. Generally a no frills hotel, but great proximity to other areas and price was reasonable. Take your earplugs tho!

During a stay some young people were staying at the hotel and they did party inside a room (they were 20 people in the room 302)until 2 am thursday and friday night!

Hotel pulito, personale gentile e disponibile, ma soprattutto posizione fantastica: centrale ed a pochi minuti a piedi dalla Rambla, con numerosa diponibilità di mezzi nelle immediate vicinanze (metrò e bus, compreso il bus dall'aeroporto), il posto ideale per chi vuole visitare Barcellona e vivere anche le notti. Le "signorine" che si trovano lungo le stradi centrali di Barcellona, e quindi nei dintorni dell'hotel, non creano alcun problema, anzi risultano caratteristiche del luogo, inoltre la zona risulta molto tranquilla anche per la continua presenza delle forze dell'ordine 24 ore su 24 . Consigliamo vivamente l'hotel. Se dovessimo tornare a Barcellona di sicuro torneremo in tale struttura. PS)Per quanto riguarda la colazione, è a pagamento, ma non consigliamo di farla in hotel poichè nei dintorni ci sono numerosi bar in cui abbuffarsi con poca spesa.

Good-sized clean and airconditioned room. Central location with most viewable places in walking distance. Parking in hotel for 20€ per day. Payment has to be made upfront (incl. parking). Staff also wants you to leave your car keys at reception (for emergencies). Only way round it is to leave your mobile number. I wasn't called. Very difficult to get there by car, access restricted by system of one-way roads, with none of them leading to the hotel. Ask at reception for best way to get to hotel. In summary, difficult access, demanding payment methods, but very good value for money.

We had wonderful six days in Barcelona at the hotel Ronda. Hotel's location was excellent and the neighbourhood was original and interesting - still missing our morning cigarettes with locals at the small "plaza" next to the hotel. Neighbourhood's "working girls" were patient and caused us no harm. Hotel's breakfast wasn't any gourmet-experience, but got us started and kept us going for a while. And it was included in to the room price! We definitely recommend this hotel and we are willing to stay there again. Don't miss nice restaurants and bars at C/Carme and C/Hospital!

The location was great - within walking distance to most sites and there was a metro stop very close also. The room was simple yet comfortable. There were quite a few prostitutes (or just ladies waiting for the bus!) around, but it did not bother us all that much - it didn't feel unsafe.

The hotel was in a central location close to all the attractions. The room size was also quite reasonable and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was included and it was everything that you require.In short it was value for money.

The position was wonderful and the neighbours were quiet except for the last evening (Monday!)Take a kettle and iron with you and possibly some cups. Everything worked fine. The worst point was the 89 stairs which would be too much for someone who is not fit! There are now two full sets of keys and the owner was very helpful to give me another set as most of the keys did not work in the locks. Sofa has many stains. Lovely balcony.

the price paid for our stay at the ronda was very competitive. the room was large neat and spacious and the biggest asset of this hotel would be its very warm and accomodating staff. breakfast was very filling and complete. the hotel is very accessible to the ramblas and the shops and means of transportation as well. except for trying to take a shortcut on the backstreets after midnight, this hotel is highly recommended.

as I stated in my complain to the management of the hotel, the room was not cleaned at all during 3 days, only the beds were made and the garbages were taken out, the bed linens had holes in it....I would not recommend the hotel unless it is the last resort.........

Bon rapport qualité/prix. j'avais réservé pour 3 personnes; la chambre était équipée de 3 vrais lits. Petit déjeuner compris, copieux et varié. Garage pour 18€ par jour. Seul problème: trouver l'hotel (seule l'entrée est visible dans un coin d'une petite place, il faut bien regarder....Le soir, le quartier derrière l'hotel est à éviter si on a des enfants...à cause des dames qui y travaillent....Dans l'ensemble bon hotel relativement bien placé.

Several things annoyed us. i had asked for a quiet room as my wife is pregnant, so they put us next to a service elevator. Also one night some guests in the room above were having a party, we were unable to sleep until my wife rang reception at 3.00 am. You had to pay for your entire stay at check in (i wonder why??) You had to pay a 20 Euro deposit for the remote control for the romm TV. There were prostitues on every street corner in the surrounding area after dark. Friends of ours booked a three star hotel in Playa de Catalonia (5mins away) and there was no comparison-they had free wine and sanwiches each night in a luxurious lobby. I wouldn't have minded but at over £100 per night Ronda wasn't exactly cheap. One saving grace was the staff who were friendly,polite and welcoming.

The hotel is good value for money but nothing special. Staff are very helpful!! The location is fairly central and close to shopping/drinking/eating etc, may need taxis sometimes as the city is so big! Surrounding area a bit seedy but safe enough, we were worried about the area but when we got there we had no trouble at all!

Not the most spacious rooms but very clean and adequate for the budget traveller. Considering the price, the hotel was very centrally located just a brisk 5 minute walk to las ramblas. I would stay there again.

I was very disappointed to discover that the main road leading to the hotel was FULL of prostitutes...the surrounds were awful to say the least. The second room we occupied (we had to move from the 1st one because it was unbearably hot) faced the back of some poverty sticken buildings where people yelled and screamed through the night (we had to keep the window open because it would have been too hot otherwise). I find it ridiculous that an extra €4 were charged for the safe seeing that the room wasn't inexpensive to start with. Walking around the city, there were many three-star hotels that were MUCH nicer. The hotel itself is situated between two small, ugly back streets. I was extremely disappointed! I also found it highly unusual that the rooms had to be paid for upon arrival...

Das Hotel liegt wenige Meter vom Strassenstrich entfernt und untermalt den abendlichen Spaziergang zu einem ungemütlichen Spießrutenlauf !! Ansonsten schön zentral gelegen und mit guter Anbindung an das Metro Netz !!

Maybe there are better hotels in Barcelona, but this one is very good located and has an excellent cost/quality ratio. Everything as promised, tasty breakfasts included in the price and nice staff. I would stay here again.

The rooms are small but reasonable. The maids did not wash glasses or tidy up much, they just make the beds and do the bathroom. Breakfast could be a bit better. Otherwise okay, except if there is any noise in the rest of the hotel, you do hear it.

I stayed at the Ronda with my family (triple room, last floor, maybe it was that quiet therefore) and it was a very nice and pleasant stay.-None of the things posted by some earlier customers (noisy, bad sorrounding etc.) came true in our case, so we can really recommend the hotel to everyone.Very clean, very friendly and competent staff, very good breakfast and convenient location!Price/quality-relationship is really excellent.

Hotel Ronda is a good choice if you wish to stay in Barcalona on a budget, It is well situated if you want to be near the busy Ramblas, the down-side to this is that the streets around the hotel can become a little 'seedy' come nightfall, safety in numbers, that's what i say! The breakfast was very good with everybodies taste catered for. It is true what they say about Barcalona, beware of pickpockets, in our four day stay we saw it happen twice! Despite this we still had a great city break.

The area near the hotel is not very nice for different reasons: though it is not dangerous if you are in group and it is always crowded, there are prostitutes and not very nice people around. Anyway the Hotel stay has been ok because the quality of service was sufficent. The relationship between price/quality is not competitive with other hotels in the city. We won't come back.

In general I quite enjoyed my stay. The price/quality ratio is okay. Only the noise within the rooms is loud, you can hear what is happening in the room next door and you always know when someone is using the bathroom.

Room did not have a view, on second thought I should have asked for it to be changed. Reception staff were excellent and spoke good english. Breakfast was very good with a good variety. My only concern was the area, at around 7.30 in the evening it turned into the red light district, although they did seem well behaved and I did not see them bothering people, however it was off putting.
