Just returned from our first trip to Barcelona with my wife and two daughters of 19 and 21. Hotel location excellent, less than half an hour walk from the Aerobus stops at Placa Espanya or Placa de Catalunya, or only a few stops on the bus or metro if you prefer. We were 5 minutes walk from La Rambla, the nearest metro stop and the stop for the open top city tour busses. I was not that familiar with the works of Gaudi before my trip but found the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, La Pedrera and Park Guell all fascinating, and although not cheap to visit, all well worth it. We found many excellent bars and restaurants within easy walk of the hotel, especially Bar Cañete in Carrer de la Unió, at the more expensive end of the scale (lobster croquettes and beef tartar particularly good) and Chardonnay in Carrer Ample, a less sophisticated tapas bar, but still serving up many Catalan delights, all washed down with a lovely Rioja.
We would also recommend a walk up the hill to the start of the cable car at Miramar, which then whisks you high above the port and the World Trade Centre to Sant Sebastia close to the port and the beach. The open top bus is a good introduction to the city, we used the City Tour bus and found that the best option was to buy a two day ticket and take advantage of using in hop-on, hop-off mode to get from place to place, whilst taking a longer trip when our feet were getting tired or it was getting dark.

Very nice rooms and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend or stay here again. One thing they could improve on though is the breakfast, if they could offer eggs at least. Even boiled eggs, which is quite easy to prepare, would make guests happy. Overall, an excellent place, close to most of anything you'd wanna see in Barcelona. We had dinner at the marina one night and decided to walk back to the hotel. Took us 30minutes including the shopping we did along the way. Totally recommend!

We stayed at Acta Mimic in early August after making the trip from Australia for the Europe summer and were very happy with our choice. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made our trip a memorable one. We would have no problem recommending to anyone!

We enjoyed our short stay at the Splendid. The room and bed were very comfortable. The view wasn't brilliant, but typical of a city centre hotel. The location was fine, just 5 mins walk from Las Ramblas and 2 mins from the Tour Bus terminus. Breakfast was fine with a good selection, while the PC with free internet access came in handy to order the shopping for our return. TV in room featured CNN and three movie channels, though two of them were of a HARDCORE nature and certainly NOT SUITABLE for children! Parents be warned!!
