Citadines Barcelona Ramblas
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I will start with the positive. The front desk staff, Mario and Alba, were terrific. They were very pleasant and extremely helpful.The room was somewhat disappointing. The grout in the tile on the walls of the shower appeared to be stained from past mildew, no active mildew. Also the bedspread had a decorative swath of material which had small stains on it. Not exactly what you want to walk in and see.To end on a positve note, the location of the Citadines is great. It is centrally located on Las Ramblas within walking distance to a number of worthwhile sites and activities.
We chose to stay in Citadines Barcelona as we have had reasonably good experiences with this group in other locationa (Hamburg and Berlin). Unfortunately this Citadines in Barcelona did not meet our expectations due to bathroom which was always cold and wet due to poor design of shower cubicle. Also we stayed for 5 days where even the apartment floor became dusty and was not cleaned.
Most hotels in central Barcelona are a fairly high price...the Citadines is slap-bang in the centre, on Las Ramblas, with the old town right behind it. It doesn't have restaurants and bars and is clean and modern but basic. Room service only once a week (or was it every 4-5 days)...but for 3 nights, make your own bed and save a few hundred pounds!
A very conveniently located property - close by the Market, has a Carrefour opposite, a short walk away from subway stations, Corte El Ingles and the central plaza.One bedroom residence was a nice size to fit 4 persons. The sofa bed consists of 2 single beds rather than one large bed. Interiors are contemporary, clean and bright. Had a room facing the back of the property rather than the Ramblas, which meant we could keep our windows opened (still slightly noisy, but away from the maddening crowds).Bathroom was a nice comfortable size, with sufficient counter-top space. Tiles were mouldy, and water pressure was average. Lobby (on a second floor) and entrance (on the ground floor) were still undergoing renovation at the time of visit.Service was a mixed-bag. Entrance staff were grouchy, and don't help you much. They lobby is greatly understaffed - usually just one person, at most two. Some were friendly, others more transactional.Emailing the property for information in advance was dreadful. Emails to reconfirm my trip was answered, but emails asking about local recommendations never came back.
It´s location in the middle of the action and the good assistance made the difference. the hotel was under remodeling in some areas, but it really did not affect our stay and the help provided by the staff was always superb
