“Great location, very nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2012

We stayed in the Le Meridien twice... their first time for a day prior to a cruise, the second time for a couple of days after the completion of the cruise. Both stays were very good. It's in an almost ideal location, right in the heart of Barcelona in La Rambla. It's close to many sights as well as providing easy access to Barcelona's Metro system. For our first visit, we were upgraded to a junior suite in a great location and a higher floor. The room was outstanding in every way... comfortable, large, very clean. Our second room was not quite as nice (but still clean and large enough) and we had some issues with the air conditioning (room was not cool enough at night). The A/C was fixed the following day after we reported the issue. We also had an issue with the in-room Internet service, since the wireless access was not good enough to enable a reliable connection (fortunately was able to use the hard wired internet as a fallback). This was not an issue in the first room.

Overall, in spite of some fairly minor issues, this is fine hotel, good restaurant, and in an outstanding location. Definitely recommended.

Room Tip: The area can be noisy. Try to get a high room. If you encounter issues with the A/C, be sure to re...

Dear guest

I am happy to see that you had such a great stay with us and I would like to thank you for sharing this with us. We always strive to exceed one's expectations and when the team read reviews like this, one can go home with a smile in his face.

Our new renovated suites are a must and they real make a difference, that off course are enhanced by the excellent quality of our housekeeper team. Yes our Cent Onze restaurant is a very nice venue where one can have a nice genuine meal while watching the movement at Las Ramblas.

It was a pleasure to have you in our hotel and be assured that today we all wil be proud by your kind review

Looking forward to welcome you back to Barcelona

It is a mystery as to how this hotel gained or maintains 5 stars. The reception staff and housekeeping are substandard and do not perform at any acceptable rating level.
With the exception of the exotic bathroom the room is poorly appointed at this level of hotel, the cleanliness of the room is poor e.g. mirrors not cleaned dirty towels left lying on floor. The drink facilities are not replenished, bed linen is not changed unless specifically requested, in the guise of being environmentally friendly or perhaps just pennypincing. Information display on the second floor was not functioning for three days due to a simple but unresolved computer error. The corridors were cluttered with dirty bed linen for most of the day. The free Wifi does not exist and is charged at 6 euro for 30 minutes.

This hotel is in an excellent location on Las Ramblas with lots of restaurants and shops around. Nothing was too much trouble for the very friendly staff. A nice room with a very comfortable bed. Could have done with a walk-in shower as the bath was rather high.
The room was overlooking the side street so very quiet. There is free internet 24 hours a day. Within walking distance of the Metro station and the bus tours which ran from Catalunya Square.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side street are probably quieter than on the front which is on Las Ramblas.

just walk out of the Hotel and you are in the center of the city. whether you want to sight see or eat, everything is not far away. The staff is friendly and very helpful with great tips on things to do or go to eat. The breakfast is a nice way to start the day and it continues from there. The rooms are very comfortable and the whole atmosphere makes you feel at home.

A great location on Las Ramblas in a small lane off the main street conveniently located with access to the metro station, the pier and the tour bus area. The Gothic quarter is also walking distance. The standard room is decently sized and fully equipped.
