Clean modern 4 star hotel

Lovely hotel that offers great value for money. Staff are very helpful & friendly. Rooms are spotlessly clean and very modern. The hotel is a little out of the centre. Local bars and restaurants have little English but much better value than the city centre.

Very nice hotel

Hotel Derby is really good in terms of comfort and cleanliness. You can get to the city center in less than 10 mins by bus and the bus stop is just 3-5 min walk away from the hotel. The hotel staff is also very nice and pleasant. The double room with king size bed should be bigger though. The breakfast price is 14 euros which is quite high too. If the double rooms are bigger and the hotel is located in the city center, I will give it 5 stars.

An ideal location for the tourist

Stayed in this hotel back in June and I must say I was very impressed. The hotel is only ten minutes walk from the nearest metro stop, and its only a couple of stops to the central station (Sants) as well as for the famous landmarks such as Las Ramblas. Its situated in a very quiet area, so there's not really much traffic noise. First impressions of the room was that it was quite modern and chic in its design, not too up market, but very comfy and spacious. Note that the hotel has free Wifi in every room, so useful for the smartphone/laptop users. Hotel was very smart, clean and presentable. Room service was top notch, cleaned daily. Staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly for me and my friend who were visiting the city for sightseeing! There are quite a few shops convenientlylocated not far from the hotel as well as bars and restaurants. Across the road from the hotel is a pharmacy and a couple of restaurants and round the corner is a newsagent, good place to get your grub especially as breakfast in the hotel is very pricey if you don't have breakfast included, was around 18 euros! There is also a larger supermarket located about two minutes walk as well. Overall, I really rated the hotel, especially for the location that its in. Would definitely consider staying there again! :)

Siisti hotelli

Hyvä sijainti, erittäin siisti, joskin jonkin verran kolkko hotelli. Kohtelias henkilökunta, kaikki sujui mukavasti. Valitsisin tämän hotellin uudelleen.

Sehr geehrter Gast, vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung! Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Ihnen Ihr Zimmer gefallen hat. Es tut uns leid, dass Sie die Wände als ein bisschen dünn empfunden haben. Wir haben eine relativ ruhige Lage, unsere Fenster sind doppelt verglast und wir haben auch doppelte Türen in allen Zimmern. Gäste mit einem leichten Schlaf können sich aber sehr gern jederzeit an unsere Rezeption wenden, sodass wir Ihnen nach Möglichkeit ein besonders ruhiges Zimmer zur Innenseite des Hotels geben können. Gern würden wir Sie bei Ihrem nächsten Besuch in Barcelona wieder bei uns willkommen heißen! José Luis Fernández, Geschäftsführer

Hôtel accueillant, a l'écart de la foule

Hôtel sympa avec personnel accueillant et chaleureux. Situé à l'écart de la foule mais très bien desservi en transport. En revanche, la piscine est située dans l'hôtel d'en face et est très petite. Y arriver tôt pour espérer avoir une place.
