“Good value for suburban hotel”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Comfortable sleep, clean room, helpful staff. Wish it was closer to the Metro stop since it's quite out of the way.

Reviewed 6 January 2012

We stayed for a total of 5 days in NH La Maquinista which is a good and clean hotel with comfy rooms that lack drawers and cupboards. It is located on the outskirts of Barcelona and it takes you a ten minute stroll to the subway and from there you need less than half an hour for Las Ramblas with the red line. We did this every morning and liked it. There's also a big shopping mall right behind the hotel that caters to most of your needs (apparel, food, entertainment).

Fortunately, we got a great price for our stay which was the trigger to choose NH La Maquinista. Unfortunately, the friendliness and service wasn't worth neither 3* nor hostel ranking. So we had this broken flush in the restroom which wasn't appropriately fixed (twice). The first day we left for town announcing the problem and by the evening it was solved (so the reception) but it was exactly the same as before. There was no plumber on staff so it could only be fixed by the next day. Was it fixed then? No, it wasn't. Arguing on departure for a recompensation (e.g. free breakfast) for not having a functioning restroom (basic necessity) all we got was a free drink at the hotel bar and late check-out (after half an hour of discussion). You could notice staff on duty was really offended and they didn't take us seriously because we weren't the regular customers but rather young. The motto was: Cust..., err, employee first!

Further advice:
- Don't take the breakfast here. It is way too overpriced. Instead, go to shopping center.
- Don't necessarily use the hotel parking (13€/d?) but park on the street
- Ask for free 1h WLAN codes at reception
- Ask for room to the front, back view is just concrete, walls and exit ramps

This hotel is slightly more out of the main city but withing easy reach by the metro which is about a 10min easy walk form the hotel. (35 Euros or there about from the airport ) If you do stay here get a ticket at the metro a T-10 this allows you ten journeys for around 8.45 Euros rather than single trips for 1.45Euros. The station is Sant Andreu to Catalunya in central Barcelona.
Right by the hotel is a great shopping mall with all the shops you would find in town as well as a cinema and nice restaurants and coffee houses, so if you had tired feet you can just take it easy doing things more local.
One good restaurant to try if you want something a wee bit more special is in Barra Gothica area just off Las Rambalas, its called The Four Cats and is very traditonal Catalan food. But again discovering the back streets yourself you will find many nice lovely restaurants.
We are ardent lovers of this City and have been many times.....its great for Gaudi , Picasso and Dali lovers as well as having a beach and other things to do a city to explore.
Our hotel was clean and the staff very helpful and the continental breakfast was really nice alot of choice not just a croissant and tea , meat, fruits cereals juices pastries etc, not much spqce for hangin clotes as mainly used as a business hotel but still very very good.

Like any city just be careful against pickpockets be street savvy and you will be fine

If you love shoping and fashion this a a place to go, but also have fun exploring the sites... ENJOY XX

Room Tip: all rooms cleaned daily and fresh towels etc great service, great staff

Just that. A regular NH hotel. Tv's where not quite sintonized, regular rooms. Good choice if really needed a hotel on that area. 30sec to the shopping la maquinista.

i have been to nh la maquinista hotel in barcelona for 4 days and if i had to go back i would definitely go back to this hotel.the room was nice and clean..the restroom big and comfortable..they cleaned the room every day and i can tell that it was really good cleaned.we didnt try the breakfast in the hotel cause it wasnt included in the price.as for the position..you just need to walk like 10 minute to get to the nearest train station to get to the center and it is a pleasent walk since you walk through a park basically.In front of the hotel there is a big mall..where you have many many options for eating in case you wanna get breakfast or a dinner after a long day in barcelona.i would definitely recommend this hotel..the receptionist suggested us a great restaurant where we had the best paella and sangria..L'arroz was the name of it.
