Golden Hotel Barcelona
I recently spent two nights in a modern hotel in Barcelona. The room was lovely and the staff were friendly and informative, providing helpful advice on directions. The breakfast had a great variety of warm and cold options. We also had a tasty bar snack one evening. The highlight was the roof terrace, a perfect spot to soak up the warm sun and unwind. The hotel was conveniently located away from the busy area, with a 5-minute walk to the metro and a flat and easy walk to the seafront.
Our stay at this hotel was truly exceptional. The team members assisting us were incredibly kind, accommodating, and welcoming. The rooftop pool and bar were an absolute highlight, offering stunning views and top-notch service. The location was ideal, providing a peaceful atmosphere while still being conveniently close to transportation options. Overall, we could not have asked for a better experience and are already looking forward to returning.
My stay at the Golden Hotel Barcelona was satisfactory. The staff were extremely helpful and the location was convenient. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were kept clean. However, the one aspect that disappointed us was the air conditioning. It was not able to switch to cool as it was during the winter season, but unfortunately our room was still very hot and stuffy. The small window only allowed a slight opening, making it difficult to get any air circulation. Perhaps climate change played a role as it was unusually warm for February, but it would have been appreciated if the air conditioning could have been adjusted.
👎🚫 Not planning on returning
1) 😒 Employees lacking energy and "Yes, I can" attitude, more like 🤖 than friendly staff
2) 🚧 Renovations causing lots of noise
3) No effort to make up for the uncomfortable experience
4) Key card constantly deactivated, multiple trips to reception needed
5) Late check-out for 15€ (only 1 hour requested), even though hotel was completely empty (confirmed by night manager) 👎 Won't be staying here again, better to support hard-working family-owned COMSET hotels in the area.
The hotel had a pleasant atmosphere and a lovely scent in the foyer. The building itself was aesthetically pleasing and had a nice restaurant and bar. The breakfast provided was plentiful and satisfactory, with the added bonus of being open until 11 on weekends. The rooftop pool and jacuzzi were a delightful addition, especially since they were open in December. The bed was comfortable and the room was lovely. However, for those from the UK, it may be useful to bring a Spanish extension lead as there are no English channels available on the TV, only news. It is recommended to bring a fire stick and Spanish extension lead if one wishes to relax and watch British TV after a day of exploring. The Glories metro station is a short 6-minute walk away, with plenty of nearby restaurants. The Poblenou area is about a 10-minute walk away and also offers a variety of dining options. Using the metro was uncomplicated and convenient. The location was a bit far from the city center, but pickpocketing was not a concern. It is advised to avoid the restaurant closest to the hotel as it was not the most enjoyable dining experience. Overall, the hotel itself was great and I would definitely consider staying here again.
