Convenient

Posted 15-Oct-2014
Pros: See above.
Cons: See above,
Location: See above. It's close to the Magic Fountain show, but honestly, it was great to be part of the crowd, but the show was kind of outdated.
Love the location for easy access to metro, train station and airport! Quick and easy anywhere in Barcelona, yet quiet. Wonderful supermarket and fabulous food court in basement of the large arena structure right down the street, right next to the metro stop. Really friendly and helpful staff at reception. Great room. My only complaint was that the bed was pretty stiff. The pillows hurt my neck too. The sheets really weren't that soft. But, that's not super unusual for Europe, it's just that all three in one hotel was a bit much. I would heartily recommend this hotel for cleanliness, friendliness and convenience, but I just didn't sleep very well. Also, the blackout shade in room 901 was really ugly and shabby. Duct tape was holding together and it got stuck several times when putting it up and down. They really should replace it. Try to avoid this floor, the view was obstructed by a high wall - didn't make any sense at all. But I could see the sky and some of the horizon.

Lovely hotel in an excellent location

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Pros: the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff and the convenience for travel connections
Cons: Breakfast was very busy on a couple of occasions and some of the items were empty and took a little while to get refilled
Location: The location is ideal with many restaurants, bars and shops close by and the wonderful waterfall display 5 minutes walk
we had a very comfortable 6 day stay in the Ayre Hotel which was partly for leisure and partly for business. The welcome which we received on arrival from the reception staff was very warm and this continued throughout our 6 day stay, with all of the staff being very friendly and helpful. The location at Plaza Espanya is very convenient for connections by bus, metro or taxi to all parts of the city.

Hotel was nice, a little worn down but not bad. Needed some paint touch up but the location was perfect to view the fountain at night and then walk 5 minutes back to hotel! Would recommend and stay there again.

Nice clean hotel with transport links

Posted 24-Jun-2014
Myself and a friend stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in the middle of June. The hotel is in a really good base for travelling around the main tourist sites of Barcelona with the closest metro station being about 100metres away and about a 5 min ride from Las Ramblas. The magic fountains are just around the corner too The hotel itself was very clean and tidy. On arrival check in was quick and Staff were polite and helpful. Rooms are not huge, but then we were out and about most of the time so this wasn't a problem

Very Helpful Staff

Posted 20-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is in a brilliant location to explore the city and is especially convenient for the "magic fountains" only 5 minutes walk away. The staff made checking in very easy, allowed us to store our bags and could not do enough to help with going out and about in the city, answering all the questions we had. The room was bright and modern with a huge wet room and four bottles of water provided gratis. Two minor critisisms: the windows were very dirty (having said this room was on high floor so not sure if this can be helped) and air con was a little laboured. Other than this a perfect stay and would definately recommend and stay again.
