We booked the balcony room and we were very satisfied. The amenities were adequate, bed was comfortable, and the room was clean. It was a quiet location considering how close it is to Diagonal, a main street. We wanted an accessible hotel and this location was perfect to access the HOP BUS for either line and to get the Sants... More

To be fair the reception staff were great, polite, helpful and cheerful. They apologised for the fact that the bar had been closed down and brought us coffee in the lobby instead. The waitresses at breakfast were obviously very unhappy at having to serve (two English) guests but managed to avoid saying anything untoward. Beyond asking for our room numbers... More

The Derby Hotel in Barcelona. Where to start? I checked into the Derby on 19th October 2016 for two nights as part of a business trip on a booking made through British Airways Holidays (BA). The Derby is supposedly a four-star hotel, but my experience was far from this. I wouldn’t even give the Derby a single star based on... More

I was in town during a large business conference and this was one of the few hotels we could book.

Hotel was very nice. Rooms ample, albeit small. Buffet breakfast was good, although there were gnats flying all around the table and landing on the food, which I did NOT like.
