Oh Dear Oh Dear Don't Stay Here

The sky was clear enough to see the stars in Barcelona, but after checking into Confortel Almirante it was hard to see why this establishment could possibly deserve any of it's supposed four stars. The hotel is well situated, the lobby looks hip and trendy, and the staff are friendly enough, but this is tired and incredibly basic place to stay at the end of the day. Everything in the room looked pretty worn out. In the bathroom I was provided with a single solitary single use sliver of soap. This place deserves one star at most.

Great location, good price.

Located on on of the main avenues leading to the harbor and in the middle of the Gothic neighborhood make it a great place from which to explore. We chose an inside room off of the street, and it was very quiet. Room had a safe. Very clean, but shower door did not keep water from getting the floor wet. A/C was great to have. Staff was courteous. Had breakfast one morning at their restaurant. Not much of a deal for €11- most of the fruit was from a can.

Don't eat at the restaurant next door. Walk around the corner to the Mercado Santa Catarina. Some good restaurants there, especially the one on the corner of the market closest to the hotel- Cuines Santa Catarina. Had a great lunch and dinner there.

Good short city break

The hotel is in the heart of Barcelona's lively and very beautiful Gothic Quarter. The location can not be beaten. The hotel itself is rather basic and nothing spectacular. I had a great 5 day city getaway and would love to return to Barcelona.

If you want the true Spanish cuisine experience you must try out the tapas restaurants in the Gothic Quarter. Don't be put off by the look of some of them. Go in if there are tons of locals because you will be certain to have a brilliant evening.

Yes, I would recommend this hotel, but you get what you pay for.

Stayed one night. Room was clean but dated. Bed was very hard as are most in the hotels i stay in and the air conditioning was very weak therefore room was a bit warm at night. I didn't use room service or any other facilities within the hotel. I would say it was about what I expected for the price. No major complaints but I'm trying to nit pick a bit for this review.

Great stay for 3 nights. Perfect Location!

Very comfortable and reasonably priced stay. Location was absolutely perfect - walking distance to many places and close to metro station. Room and bathroom were both great - awesome shower! Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was also very good and only 11 Euro for a great spread of quality food and many beverages. I highly recommend this hotel if you are spending a few nights in Barcelona.

Everything was good, but the room smelled really bad. Requested a change in room and everything was better.

Very pleased with our stay

We stayed 3 days in mid Sept. 2013, and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was helpful - checked us right in with somewhat early arrival. Our room was in the back, so very quiet, and it was larger than we anticipated. The bathroom was also surprisingly large. And everything was exceptionally clean, which really pleased us. We didn't eat at the hotel - rather we found a very nice little place around the corner for breakfast and other nice places within easy walking distance. The hotel proved to be a perfect location for first-timers to Barcelona. We did lots of walking as well as used the hop-on, hop off bus. Definitely recommend it.

Good location, poor room

Came with my wife to enjoy a week end in Barcelona. Location very convenient close to the Cathedral, Plaza Catalunya (buses to BCN airport) and Barrio Gotico. Our room was very, very, very small... and the bed smaller! No bath, shower only. Blind windows. Unacceptable for a ****.

Central Barcelona stay

We had a lovely stay at hotel Almirante. We booked through a mobile app and received a great price! We had a top floor room with as huge terras and amazing views of the old town and Sagrada familia (I think we got an upgrade). Location of the hotel was perfect, just the room itself seemed a little dated, but that didn't matter at all.
