What a fabulous Gem!!

Posted 20-Sep-2014
Pros: I loved everything in the Hotel Granvia----from its architecture to the decor to the helpful , polite staff, it was all wonderful.
Cons: I can't think of anything that could be better!!!
Location: You are in walking distance to Catalunya Square and RAMBLAS, where you can catch the hop on, hop off buses, the public buses, the metro!
My friends had stayed at the Hotel Granvia several years ago, so since I was going to be in Barcelona for four nights I decided that this was the place for me too. The hotel is beyond gorgeous( it was originally a mansion), with beautiful details, and it has been completely renovated and updated. The location is perfect, smack in the middle of the city, in walking distance to most of the points of interest, and access to public transportation. After walking or touring all day, it is the haven to return to for afternoon tea or a cup of cupuccino, which is offered to guests from 5:00-7:00P.M.

Great location, lovely hotel.

Posted 27-Aug-2014
Pros: Location, staff, room, character - a Soho-like boutique.
Cons: More of a concierge presence.
Location: Everything close by. A walk to all of the Gaudi sights.
Everything was top notch with one exception. Because it is a smaller boutique hotel, there was no dedicated concierge to help, either before arrival or during. The staff at the front desk do their best and they are lovely, but it's a busy crowded city and help is needed to arrange tours, guides, etc…Visitors must make arrangements before they arrive, or plan to take on that responsibility themselves. There are plenty of options, it's just that recommendations are helpful given the many choices.

Clean and Convenient with no surprises

Posted 24-Aug-2014
We stayed at Hotel Granvia for 6 nights. We booked a family suite that had a king and a pullout queen. We were with our daughter and it was our first time in Barcelona. This hotel is a real find. While not inexpensive, it has recently undergone renovations and now projects an air of old world grandeur with a distinctly modern feel. The hotel is walking distance to several metro line stations and just far enough away from the Plaza Catalunya's hustle and bustle to feel you are in a residential neighbourhood. Quality dining and shopping abound within a 1 km radius and the Gothic Quarter is a 15 minute stroll. The room service was excellent. I would recommend this hotel to people not looking for a lot of additional amenities such as fitness and pool. The courtyard in the rear, however, was a delightful oasis with comfortable couches with bar service. We will definitely stay there again.

Perfect location

Posted 06-Jul-2014
Brilliant central location perfect for exploring Barcelona. Hotel itself is beautiful. I had a superior room which was excellent plenty of space, big bathroom and plenty of storage. Had lovely door opening il onto the street to sit relax and people watch at the end of the day. Staff were really friendly and breakfast was a good continental selection.

Beautiful hotel, great location!

Posted 05-Jul-2014
Pros: Roof terrace - great loungers, day beds and outdoor showers!
Cons: Our bathroom was very compact so could have been a little more spacious. Would have been nice to have tea and coffee facilities in the room.
Location: Great location! Walking distance to Las Ramblas and many Gaudi sights. Perfectly located for the airport shuttle and tourist bus too.
This was my 3rd time staying at this hotel and the recent renovations have really transformed it into a beaut! Its in a wonderful location, approx 3mins stroll to the top of Las Ramblas and really accessible for the tourist bus routes and airport shuttle bus (both located at Plaza Catalunya). Staff were friendly and hotel amenities were good. Super stay yet again....definitely recommendable!

Nice terrace and great breakfeast buffe

Posted 20-Jun-2014
Location: It is next to the great Passeig Gracia where you can find most high street stores and designer brands.
I stayed at Granvia during a business trip. It is a quiet hotel with friendly staff. There is a wonderful terrace where you can can work, relax and even invite clients for a drink. There is also a great library with good space and tranquility to work.

Can't really complain.

Posted 12-Jun-2014
Pros: Location, staff, and cleanliness.
Cons: Can't think of anything, other than me losing a bit of weight, so could get into the bathroom a bit easier.
Location: Hotel Gran Via is in the heart of Barcelona; 5 minutes to La Ramblas, Placya Catalunya, fabulous Tapas Bars and Restaurants, and endless shops.
The room was small, but that was what we paid for; the bathroom was a bit too tight for me (and I'm a bit big), but was clean, and had a good selection of gels, shampoos, etc. No complaints whatsoever about the hotel, staff, and facilities. It's either the 3rd or 4th time we've stayed here; it was closed last year for refurbishment, and what a great job they've done. Will always be my No.1 hotel to stay in Barcelona.
