“Too far from Town, walk to Metro not suitable for women”
Reviewed 21 October 2009

This hotel is lovely and clean and an ideal business hotel. The walk to the Metrol is 15 mins and 15 mins on Metro. The area to walk to the station is dark and scary and wouldn't recommend it to women. Staff lovely but bar does not open at weekends and local bars are very local and not really for Tourists. Ideal for business but not for weekend in Barcelona!

This hotel is in a former industrial district about 15 min by car from the center of Barcelona. It's fairly new and clean but not cheap enough to justify being away from the downtown area. There is a good shopping mall beside the hotel, otherwise the surroundings have nothing to offer. If you plan to commute back and forth to the city keep in mind that a taxi ride costs 10-14 euros one way and the nearest metro station is 15 min walk away and a 20 min train ride downtown.

The breakfast is included and quite acceptable, but the internet in the room is expensive

Hi Folks,

Stayed in this place last year. Flew with Ryanair into Girona, from there you can get a taxi to train station in Girona, and the area where hotel is, is on the line to Barcelona so couldn't be easier. From train station to hotel, its about a 10 minute walk.

The City Centre is about 15-20 mins by train, so this place is perfect. On top of that, theres a great Shopping Centre at side of hotel, and there are restaurants, loads of stores etc. Would defo recommend it, and its reasonably priced. Bar the shopping centre, theres nothing much here, hop on the train and you're in town.

Cheers

  • Liked — Beside Shopping Centre, & close to train station.

Reviewed 12 October 2007

We have just returned from a 4 night trip to Barcelona residing at the NH La Maquinista. The hotel is okay, but it is not suitable for tourists. Please see main points:

Location

It is supposedly meant to be in the business district, but there are no businesses in view, apart from a car show room and run down flats. It is a 15 minute walk or so to the nearest metro, and 9 metro stops to the main tourist areas - Catalonia Square, La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter.

The Hotel Staff

I found the staff extremely aloof, rude and unhelpful; particulary on Reception. I spoke a few words in Spanish to them - mainly good morning and good evening, and never received a response let alone a smile.

The Rooms

The Room we were in was extremely small, but very clean. Our room contained no drawers, so there was no where to store our clothing. we asked for an alternative room with drawers, but said that all the rooms were the same - no storage space. There was a small cupboard where we could store some clothes, but it was sufficient enough for 1 person.

The Breakfast

The food available for breakfast was of poor quality and unhealthy. There was a choice of cererals - with only full fat milk, pastries, cheesecake, chocolate cake - FOR BREAKFAST. If you aren't fussy and unhealthy this is the place for you.

La Maquinista Mall

Next to the Hotel there is a mall with an abundance of shops, which was a godsend for us in the evenings. There are places to eat, but no great choice. Gino's (An Italian Restaurant) was very nice, and I would recommend there.
