A historic vacation surrounded by Gaudi

Sitting in the heart of Barcelona, the Silken Gran Havana Hotel Barcelona soaks in the history all around it. Built inside a historic building, the L. Fradera house from 1872, the hotel reflects its roots while offering modern conveniences. All around the hotel loom the emblematic buildings of Gaudi, including the Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, and La Pedrera. Inside, the Silken Gran Havana Hotel Barcelona has a swimming pool, solarium, and sauna for guests. The 21st century interiors create comfort while the 19th century exterior has great charm.

A great hotel close enough to the centre sites without being in the heart of the noise and crowds. Room comfortable, modern and unfussy. Restaurant fine for tired arrival meal. Staff eager to help, especially with early morning checkout and airport taxi. Would definitely consider staying there again!

The staff, the location, the style and the comfort!

This is well and truly one of the best hotels I have stayed in when in Europe. The rooms are a fantastic size and the room we stayed in was fantastic. We were next to the stairs so occasionally got some noise and noise does travel through this hotel, but once we got settled we had 3 fantastic nights sleep! The bathroom is great and nice to finally have a descaled shower head (i know this sounds petty but I hate this when hotels fail to address this). We didn't have any breakfast here as it is far too expensive, even on their 'promotional' offer when you book in of €14 or €18 per person afterwards. There are so many cafes around that are worth going to and make some wonderful breakfasts, I cannot speak for the hotels quality of food as did not try it but looking at the lunch and evening menu the price was reasonable. The location is simply perfect, a stone's throw from everything and it is a well known hotel amongst the taxi drivers as it has a main rank out the front. The roof top pool and bar looks lush but not suitable for the chilly climes of winter. Staff at this hotel should be commended for their attentiveness and helpfulness on choosing restaurants and generally being helpful. Would definetly return and cannot wait till next time.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

The bar though it has a small seating area is a great price and beat a number of local restaurants, at about €3 a bottle of beer and €4 a glass of wine I thought this very acceptable for a relaxed evening to put your feet up and chill.

Great Hotel In a Great Location

Great Hotel with amazingly helpful staff. I got a room with a large terrance and just below the rooftop deck and pool. I went swimming every afternoon and had a drink and watched the sunset every evening. They have live music in the lobby and a easy walk to Las Ramblas. We got lucky in late September and were there for a National holiday. Tons of parades and excellent fireworks show. I would move there! Great value for the money.

All good

I stayed in one of the club level rooms where you get free coffee and pastries. It was a nice perk but definitely shouldnt be considered a make or break. The room was suprisingly large and felt very western in style. My room faced the main street and had a good view of people walking around. Though I was there during a cold weekend and had the window closed I could see the room possibly getting a bit noisy during busy warm months. Nothing the AC would fix. Bathroom was nicely appointed, clean, and had good amount of toiletries. I didn't dine at the restaurant but it was busy each night. The front desk was very helpful. Fabulous location close to tons of dining and subway stops. I would stay again.

Good central location

This is my second visit to this hotel this year, once with some girl friends and the second time with my husband. We all agree it is a very comfortable hotel, in a good location and such good value for money. The reason I have only awarded 4 stars is that the bar area can be chilly in the winter months and the bar has no atmosphere. Although the barman can make a good cocktail he is not the friendliest of people.

Barcelona packed weekend.

The hotel is easy to get to, but seems to be bordering questionable areas of town, and we were more alert walking about at night behind the hotel. It claims to be central, but is just on the far reaches of walking to central Barcelona. I realize not everything can be exactly in the middle. The roof top amenities are fabulous and above what most other hotels offer. The room was spacious and "clean", but could use a paint job. The hotel staff were very helpful, friendly and accommodating. They could be a little more versed in the concierge side of service though with their local recommendations. Being out of town, we wanted some recommendations for local cafes, etc We were referred to a local bar for coffee when across from it was the most wonderful cafe Norte. Such great breakfast sandwiches and cappuccinos. Overall, this is was a great stay and would most likely stay here again if I found a good rate.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the Hop on Hop off Sight Seeing Tourist bus! Normally, this type of thing doesn't appeal to me, but this was a most excellent and reasonable way to see what Barcelona has to offer at a glance and helps you decide additional activities and shopping. Do this immediately after you unpack and hit the streets and you will be glad you did. Kept us from floundering and being indecisive.
