Reviewed 8 November 2016

This hotel is right on Placa Catalunyas. You couldn't be closer to everything. I bought a T-10 travel card and used it only twice, the location makes walking everywhere a better idea. It is close to Las Ramblas (2 minutes-literally to the corner of the next block) but is away from the noise and bustle.

The staff are nice and helpful as well. The bathroom was brand new and the rooms are quite quirky. I liked having a mini fridge and tea and coffee making facilities which you often don't get in European hotels.

I would definitely stay there again if in Barcelona.

Room Tip: If you want excitement pick a placa facing room

Hotel Ginebra is located on Catalunya Plaza. Our room had a balcony that overlooked the plaza and we enjoyed the view along with all of the activity close by. We were greeted by Keke and Julio when we arrived. Julio showed us to our room and then came back by with complimentary Cava and chocolates and showed us a map with different things to see and how to get there. It's an easy walk to the Metro for transportation of any kind. The room was comfortable and they also serve a great breakfast. The staff was easy to understand and very accommodating. They offered us free storage of our luggage after we checked out and also use of the living room to relax in before we caught our train. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Room Tip: Be sure to request or book a room with a view or balcony

We stayed in a family room for 4 adults and had plenty of space. The room was big and airy with large windows letting in loads of light. the room itself was spotlessly clean and really nicely decorated in a quirky, boutique style. The windows opened onto the street below which was busy but not overly noisy with the windows shut however its worth opening them to enjoy the full view of Placa Catalunya.
Beds were comfy and aircon was superb - we really needed this as we happened to be there during a mini heatwave! A mini fridge helps to keep beers / wine / water etc cold too.
Finally a mention for the staff - from reception to cleaning staff everyone was friendly and couldn't do enough to help. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but we were able to leave luggage in a safe area and go for a drink up the road and it was ready before the published time which was a bonus.
Location is perfect right on Placa Catalunya and is walking distance to many tourist spots (Ramblas, Casa Botilla, Gothic Quarter etc) as well as the airport buses, tourist buses and metro. Would definitely recommend.

Found myself in the smallest hotel room ever. Since I was there to see Barcelona, not the hotel, it was OK. If you want a room with a view, ask before you book. Next time I will. Quirky, in a good way. Location is fantastic. Access to taxis, tour buses, public transportation, and restaurants galore. Better than being on Las Ramblas itself. Microfridge, A/C, TV in room plus common laundry and computer access. Wi-Fi access was erratic on my phone and Kindle. Electric adapters available for a fee. Breakfast is €8,90. Starbucks is my go-to, and there was one a half block away, so skipped breakfast. Better Wi-Fi too. If you must have the conventional hotel experience, look elsewhere. Want something different but not a hostel? Give them a try. English-speaking, generally friendly. Hector is great!

Room Tip: Ask in advance for a room facing Placa Catalyuna.
