This was our first time staying in Barcelona and it was amazing! The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance from everywhere, including the beach and las Ramblas. There are a lot of restaurants nearby and was never hard finding somewhere. The rooms are very nice, slightly dirty on the floor in places and can hear through to the rooms around. The view from our room wasn’t very good however we weren’t really in the room much, so we weren’t to bothered, but I reckon if it’s in the correct place then it’s a great view. The bed is very comfy and shower was good. The rooftop is also is very nice. A good variety of drinks and a great view, which we enjoyed before we went out for dinner and the day we got there. The staff were very friendly both in reception and the bar. We were also allowed to leave our bags which are locked away securely in reception, which only we had the key too (as we all have a locker each). Overall this was a great stay and we’d definitely stay again.

Great hotel for a four night stay. The location was superb with easy walking access to the gothic quarter / Sagrada / rambla etc. Also very close to the metro for getting further afield. Hotel was impeccably clean, presented very well and the staff were helpful. Only slight negative was breakfast which we hadn’t pre booked and only got one morning. The quality didn’t justify the 15€pp charge in our opinion. Plenty of options nearby though. Overall highly recommend and would stay again without question.

From all the hotels in Barcelona this one feels right. Fresh rooms, environment friendly, peaceful next to Arc de triomph gives you the chance to take a morning run or a stroll in the Park. The friendly atmosphere from staff och smart casual building makes you want to come back here to come home.

Really liked this quirky hotel. Rooms very comfortable and breakfast choices were very good. The roof terrace has some great views over the city and staff were extremely polite and helpful. As location goes, we could not have made a better choice. A 30 minute walk into the centre, a great park within 5 minutes walk and a few nice tapas restaurants within 10 minutes walk. Taxi to airport takes 20 minutes but is very expensive so the public transport route (approx 10 minutes walk) is a much better option

Hotel Rec is right opposite the Arc with spectacular views. Thank you to all the reception staff who made our stay wonderful. Rooms had everything needed. Bed massive. Shower was totally amazing. Breakfast on the roof top terrace was to die for, the views were amazing. Definitely going to be staying here again in the future.

The hotel is perfectly located in El Born. There are many restaurants and nice bars. The beach is not far and the subway station was easy to reach. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Thanks !

Value for money, rooms are very spaceful. Very kind staff. Haven't been to the rooftop bar, swimming pool was under maintenance (desinfection). Location is good, you can walk to many places. Otherwise the subway is easy to reach other parts of the city. Next time I will book here again for sure.
