Hotel Acta Splendid
Ranked #277 of 520 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 28 April 2012

This hotel is located in a good but not great location. There are few good restaurants/bars in the immediate vicinity butbthere are many within a 15 - 20 minute walk. La Ramblas is 15 minutes on foot and the main 'Gaudi sights' are also within walking distance. Universitat metro stop is nearby and Airport Bus stops and leaves from Plaza Catalunya which is also close. The hotel rooms are a decent size,quiet but a little dated. Breakfast is OK but nothing special.
The front desk staff are friendly and quite helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms facing away from the street are much quieter.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had an enjoyable stay. It was very easy to get to from the airport, you take the bus and get off at Plaza Universitat and it's a 2 minute walk away. There is a metro station at Plaza Universitat too and you're also only a 5-10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya and the top of La Rambla which for us was an ideal location to explore the city from. We were pleasantly surprised, having booked an economy room, that when we opened the door to our room it wasn't a box and actually seemed very spacious. However, I am not sure it was actually an economy room since the hotel website went to such great lengths to explain how much smaller the rooms were...We didn't have a view but weren't really bothered, it's a city afterall. The room had two large single beds, wardrobe, desk, chair and tv and a large bathroom with sink, bath/shower, bidet and toilet. It was all very clean and comfortable and you couldn't fault it. The only annoying thing was the hairdryer where you have to continually hold the button down to make it work but these seem common in hotels in Europe anyway!
We paid slightly extra when we booked to have breakfast as we didn't want to waste part of the morning looking for somewhere to eat. Breakfast had a good variety of cold meat and cheese, pastries and cakes, yogurts and bacon and scrambled eggs as well as tea and coffee and was always being restocked.
We found all the staff in the hotel to be polite and helpful, particularly those at reception, and had an enjoyable stay. This hotel isn't a luxury stay but for a comfortable, clean base in the heart of Barcelona you can't fault it.

This is a 3 star hotel. We stayed 4 nights and paid 300Euro !!! per night (yes 1200Euro) breakfast not included and the hotel was not ashamed to ask for the safe key 3Euro more !!! The room is without ventilation and opening the window will bring the kitchen smells from the smokestack to your room. The photos on the website are giving the impression of big hotel but the front desk, entrance and room are very small.
Actually I blame myself and Booking.com about that. I feel like someone robs me. The booking information at Booking.com is very selective and doesn't give you the full picture about the full price and services. This partial information maybe is a good marketing strategy by booking but not a good service to the guest. - the only point that I can give to this hotel is the good staff.

Room Tip: Be careful from backside rooms and noisy mattress - check the air condition and the full services pr...

Dear guest,

First of all thank your for sharing your experience with the rest of the community.

We are really sorry we did not fulfill your expectations. We would like to let you know that we always try to offer our clients the best services at the available rate up to availability. However, sometimes in Barcelona there are events, congress or conferences that make demand increases and consequently the prices of all the Hotels in the city. During your stay the Mobile World Congress was taking place in Barcelona and the hotel was completely full.
Please, next time you come to Barcelona do not hesitate to contact us and we will offer you our best rate available.

Ok so just like you, I went through a bucket load of reviews of different hotels trying to find the best one for our trip to Barcelona! This really is the best and most useful true way to do it.

This hotel gives you an excellent location right in the heart of Barcelona. 5 mins from Catalunya Square which leads to all the shops and traditional market and also bus tour routes throughout the city.

Our stay at the hotel was definitely one to remember for all the right reasons. The room was smart and stylish with modern facilities including a magificent bathroom and great view of the street and bars across from it.

If you are considering a short stay in the city then this is the place to be! Quiet location considering it's central spot, prime location to all tourist facilities and very good value!

I'd like to add that it is definitely worth getting transfers as it's a weight of your mind and our driver was very knowledgable and willing to suggest places to eat and drink as were the staff at the front desk of the hotel who were very polite and knowledgable also!

Should be 4* at least!

I have just returned from staying at this hotel 1 night pre-cruise and 1 after the cruise I must say this is an excellent hotel spotlessly clean and very friendly I discovered this hotel on my last visit to Barcelona and it was just as good on the second visit
I have stayed in hotels in this city before and had a glass of champagne given to me when I was signing in but I paid double the price for the room which I was seldom in

Now this is not a 4 star hotel and the room rate per night reflects that It is a very comfortable
affordable hotel with very friendly staff in a great location

Room Tip: It is the 3rd stop on the airport bus and then a short walk
