Excellent family holiday venue

Great location. Helpful and friendly staff. Amazing breakfasts. Comfy beds. Only let down by the thin adjoining walls and erratic WiFi reception once away from the lobby area. Overall a fantastic experience. I will certainly recommend the hotel to others who may be planning a visit to Barcelona.

Great hotel Great location

The Avienda is a lovely hotel in a fantastic location. We ate breakfast there on two of the mornings and it couldn't be faulted. This was our first time in Barcelona but definitely won't be our last. There is a great little bar right beside the hotel called Obamas live music and great cocktails. The hotel is quiet and would probably benefit from having a bar/music but that may not suit everyone. We stayed on the first floor but would ask for a room on a higher floor as it was a little noisy. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Great Barcelona break

Just came back from 3 days in Barcelona - hotel and staff were great! Roof top pool was a great treat and we even managed a quick dip at 9.30pm at night in February! Location was perfect - walking distance to all the great places, Las Ramblas, gothic quarter, El Born etc. Staff very friendly and helpful - can't wait to go back!

Fabulous experience

From the minute we arrived to the minute we left everything was perfect. All of the staff were friendly, professional and very helpful particularly those covering service at breakfast. We had adjoining rooms both of which were spotlessly clean and comfortable. We were on the 3rd floor which was very quiet. View to the back of the hotel nothing to write home about but not unpleasant. Couldn't fault the location as very central with a metro station just across the road and a 5 minute walk to the airport bus stop and less than a 10 minute walk to las ramblas. Come out of the hotel and turn right and at the end of the street there is the most fantastic tapas bar Ciudad Condal which is definitely worth a visit. Excellent choice of food and drink and very reasonably priced. All in all an excellent experience!

wonderful hotel!

The hotel is set in a perfect position close to many amenities. It is beautiful inside and has a real grandeur feel about it. The staff were helpful and polite. The breakfasts were a real treat. I would thoroughly recommend it to my friends and family. We had a lovely stay there and would go back again any time!

let down for 4*

Clean hotel and close to everything but that was its only good points. When we arrived we were put into a tiny twin room (after booking a double delux) with a view of other peoples rooms and asked to be moved, they wer not happy but put in in a double room after some asking, which had a view of a carpark lol! for a 4* i expected alot more, rooms were outdated, walls were paper thin (we heard our neighbours talking, running water, tv, door close) right up to 3/4am every night, our toilet seat was broke, door didnt lock and shower only half worked. Had already changed rooms and spent half a day trying to organise it and didnt want to waste anymore of our holiday trying to move again, Staff were unfriendly we felt. No tea making facilities which i know is common in spain etc but just to let you know :) Maybe better suited to elderly couples.

great location

The hotel and staff were great. Would like to have been warned about the metro passing under the hotel though, but did get used to it. Could not have been in a better location for exploring Barcelona.
