We stayed here four nights in late September. We found arrived early and were happy to find our room was prepared. Fixtures throughout the hotel were updated and modern. Like a recent reviewer, we were in room 607 but we really didn't find the room smaller than many European hotels, there was even room for a small table and chair. (The room next door was larger and had a different layout but we were quite happy with our room). There wasn't much space for luggage storage but as we only had carry on luggage, it wasn't a problem. There was a heated towel rack in the bathroom which we found handy for drying swim suits and some handwashed clothes. The pool was refreshing and drinks were reasonably priced. Service at the pool was friendly but sometimes the bar tender would disappear to replenish his supplies. Pool towels were supplied in our room but when we left the wet towels at the basket by the pool as instructed they were not replaced. The bar tender took care of this for us, it just meant he had to leave his post again. Other than a snack at the pool and a quick breakfast in the lobby we did not eat at the hotel. We don't eat a large breakfast and the price for the buffet would not have been good value for us although we heard it was quite good. There are plenty of restaurants around where locals grab breakfast that were quick and reasonably priced. The hotel is located in a great neighbourhood and we walked everywhere from there. This is definitely a hotel I would recommend.

If you prefer a smaller boutique hotel over the international chains, The Corner Hotel is a good option. We stayed here from September 8th through 12th while spending four days in Barcelona.

The location is good and the neighborhood is safe. There are a number of different restaurants near the hotel, and the metro stop is two blocks over and three blocks up – not too bad.

The Negative

Unfortunately, our room was the size of a triangular postage stamp. It had a king-sized bed which was a nice luxury, but not much else could fit in the room. I don’t know how much bigger other rooms are, but I would advise you to avoid Room 607 (unless they’re all the same size).

And don’t worry about which floor you’re on. This hotel is indeed on a corner of an intersection, and is surrounded by other buildings so there’s no real view to be had.

The Positives

Despite the size, the room and bathroom are incredibly well appointed. So much thought went into every door, every fixture, and every light. I’m not an interior designer, but I would imagine even a decorator would be impressed with the fixtures and features.

The bed and linens made for a comfy, cozy night’s sleep. As I mentioned, we were on the 6th floor but did not hear much noise from the street. Our room was located across from the elevators, and we did hear people talking as they waited for the elevator, but it didn’t happen very often. (This could be an issue during the busy summer travel season when the hotel is more likely to be full. I would avoid any rooms right by the elevator.)

The pool and a lounge area are on the top floor of the building, and it’s a nice touch. The pool is very small so swimming laps would be near impossible – unless you only want to do a few strokes. There are chaise lounges, regular chairs and bar stools, so there’s plenty of space to hang out and have a drink. We took a few pictures, but otherwise, we didn’t spend much time here.

We did not eat at the hotel, nor did we purchase the breakfast plan, so I can’t review the food. The one time we stopped at the bar after dinner, we couldn’t find a bartender and I had to ask the front desk to call someone to help us.

Conclusion

Overall, we had a very nice stay at The Corner Hotel. It definitely has a hip, trendy vibe from the moment you walk into the lobby. While our room was very small, it was comfortable. It is not near the tourist areas of Barcelona which is a plus and a minus. The nearest metro station is about five blocks away. The price was fairly reasonable, but if you’re dealing with a more restrictive budget, there is a Best Western located across the street, and it might offer a better price in the same location.

Room Tip: I would request a room away from the two elevators.

We have just returned from a two night stay at The Corner Hotel. From the very first moment we arrived all of the staff were excellent. Raul on reception was outstanding, really helpful with great suggestions and recommendations for attractions and restaurants etc. He even made our reservations for us. The hotel looks like it has been recently refurbished and our rooms were very comfortable and immaculatey clean, the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was as good as we have experienced. We honestly cannot fault this hotel. We would highly recommend and will be back. Great location for a tourist stay.

We were really pleased to find this gem of a hotel during our 4 night stay in Barcelona. The location was perfect for us as it was within walking distance of all of the main attractions but was away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the centre. The neighbourhood itself had plenty of its own character, it felt safe and had lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy.
We couldn’t fault the hotel at all: it was extremely clean (the housekeeping staff do a wonderful job), modern and the decor was great.
The breakfast had many options to choose from and we left feeling full every morning. I especially loved all of the fresh fruit they had on offer. I was really impressed with the amount of vegetarian options, as well as those that were gluten free and non-dairy. It seems that there was something for everyone!
The best part of the hotel though was definitely the staff who were all so helpful, spoke excellent English and clearly worked really hard to maintain the standard of the hotel.
We will definitely return!

I originally found this hotel via Trip Advisor and what a gem it turned out to be. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. It is situated on a corner in the Eixample district (an upscale and safe part of the city) of Barcelona. The hotel is modern and clean. A great lobby restaurant and bar which plays American ballads from Frank Sinatra to Michael Buble. The rooms are very clean with hardwood floors throughout. The 2nd floor breakfast area is roomy and very the breakfast offerings are many. But most impressive was the staff. they were so helpful and all spoke English. I can't say enough about the job they did and I would definitely stay there again when I am in Barcelona.
