Hotel Sant Agustí
This hotel was a fantastic choice for my trip to Barcelona. It may not have been considered a luxurious 5-star hotel, but it definitely deserves 5 stars for what it offers. The location was unbeatable, just a minute away from the bustling Ramblas street. While there were some homeless people nearby, they didn't linger at the hotel entrance. As with any city, one must expect some presence of poverty, but it wasn't a bother at all. Plus, being so close to a popular tourist spot comes with the possibility of pickpocketing, but that's just part of the busy city life. The rooms were modern and clean, and the continental breakfast had a good selection, including scrambled eggs, sausages and bacon. For those expecting a traditional English breakfast, I must remind you that you're in Catalonia, and it's only natural to be served local cuisine. Overall, I would definitely stay here again, especially for the unbeatable location.
During our recent stay at a hotel in Barcelona, we were immediately hit with a strong smell of sewage upon exiting the elevator. Unfortunately, the unpleasant odors didn't stop there. Our room was also filled with a musty, damp scent, making the hotel feel unclean. We had paid extra for a room facing the square, but this turned out to be a mistake as there was a lot of noise from homeless individuals who often occupy the space. Fortunately, the police arrived while we were writing this and the situation was resolved. Although homelessness is a widespread issue, it was not what we had in mind when choosing a hotel. It was also disappointing to find out that there were no tea or coffee facilities in the room and that we had to pay an extra €20 deposit to use a kettle. This is the first time we've encountered such a policy in all our years of traveling. In addition, the kettle itself was dirty and required a thorough cleaning. The walls of the hotel were thin, and we could hear everything from the suitcases being dragged in the room above us to the voices of our neighbors. Overall, our stay was disappointing and we would not recommend this hotel when there are plenty of nicer options nearby.
The hotel we stayed at was conveniently located near La Rambla and Mercado de La Boqueria. Our triple room on the top floor was cozy and beautifully furnished, with good wifi and water pressure. However, we were able to hear noise from other guests and the street, which was a downside. I wouldn't suggest their buffet breakfast as there are many delicious options in the surrounding area, such as the amazing bakery across the street. Overall, our stay was pleasant and we would consider returning.
The location of this hotel is in a square that is teeming with homeless individuals and pickpockets, so caution is advised. Despite this, our stay was enjoyable because of the beautiful and well-maintained room. However, the reception staff were not welcoming and appeared disinterested. The thin walls made it difficult to escape noise from neighboring rooms. That being said, the hotel's proximity to everything is perfect and cannot be faulted.
My stay at Hotel Sant Agustí in Barcelona was absolutely fantastic. Despite some negative comments about the location, I found it to be conveniently situated just a short walk away from la Rambla. The hotel is situated on a charming square and I was not at all bothered by the presence of rough sleepers. In fact, I found the location to be safe and not frightening at all. The hotel's location was ideal as it was just a few minutes away from shops, tapas bars, and the Metro. On top of that, the hotel was always spotlessly clean and our room, although small, had all the necessary amenities including an in-room safe. The shower was nice and the bed was comfortable. The front desk staff were always extremely helpful and even arranged for a prompt taxi to take us to the cruise terminal upon our request. I highly recommend Hotel Sant Agustí to anyone visiting Barcelona.
