“Barcelona central hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Persuaded my friend to come here for 4 night break rather than smart places away from the centre. Was right choice. Small but well designed room. Good bathroom and shower. Had fridge where we kept food for breakfast and snacks. Ramblas just around the corner but hotel very quiet at night. We walked everywhere. The longish walk to Parc Guell was totally absorbing with shops, Gaudi buildings cafes etc. Walk to waterfront great. Walk to Mont Juic not so great- take metro? Restaurants everywhere. Try Taller de Tapas (5 minutes walk) for dinner and Aitor (near Sagrada Familia) for great value lunch- or buy stuff in Boqueria Market or supermarket round the corner for a picnic. Didn't visit the pool- too cold! Finding the '@' on their computer was a pain - ask reception!

Room Tip: We looked out on a well but was OK - maybe why it was so quiet?

Good location for all the sightseeing stuff, good comfy beds and clean throughout. But...the walls were paper thin meaning that you can hear everything that is next door and in the corridor. Not bad but wouldn't return due to the above and also because of the very menacing feel of La Rambla.

Room Tip: Take earplugs.

Spent three nights here on my Barcelona break.
The hotel met my expectations being clean, modern and comfortable. The room was facing a small alley off the street, so there was no view to speak. The bathroom was spotless, the towels however were not quite 4 star quality. The bed was very comfortable.
The hotel is on a small street just off La Rambla, and there are nice bars and restaurants nearby. Had a very pleasant tapas meal in a tiny tapas bar just opposite the hotel.
The staff were friendly and helpful, offering to give us umbrellas for a day as it was pouring with rain as we set off for the day.
The breakfast was very good, nice selection of food. Good coffee, fresh fruit juices, delicious fresh fruit. You can even have a glass of Cava with your breakfast if you wish.
All in all, would recommend Silken Ramblas for a base to explore Barcelona.

You could not wish for a better location for a hotel in Barcelona. The hotel is on a side street off La Ramblas which protects it from the constant hustle and bustle noise of the busiest area throughout the night. It is located towards the top of La Ramblas only a few minutes walk from Placa Catalunya where the tourist buses are stationed and also the buses for the airport transfers.

Turn right on Ramblas and you are a minute away from the fabulous market, 5 minutes walk from the Column of Christopher Columbus and the marina and beach area.

The hotel itself is modern in design and very clean. The buffet breakfast has a huge selection and you can go back as many times as you like. I would recommend paying a few pounds extra when booking for B&B rather than room only as I believe to pay for breakfast on the day is quite expensive.

We didn't use the roof-top swimming pool as it was only about 20 degrees in March when we visited so probably a bit cold. Very nice facility though with sauna/steam room and gym too.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay in this hotel again if visiting Barcelona.
