Should be a one or two star hotel, not four

The bedroom was tiny and had damp on the walls. The window was tiny and didn't let in much light. The walls were extremely thin and we could hear banging from upstairs and the next door room, particularly when cleaners were moving beds and slamming doors. There was no kettle in the room and the bottled water was only refilled on a few of the days. However, the hotel was in a very good location and the staff reasonably friendly... but won't go back.

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.

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.

prima locatie alleen erg kleine kamer

Hotel had een zeer gunstige ligging tov Ramblas en haven. Kamer was echt heel erg klein alles was aanwezig maar met 1 koffer in de kamer was de loopruimte weg. 1 dag zonder tv moeten doen door kapotte kabel. En 1 dag deed de wifi het niet in de kamers maar alleen bij de receptie ( kan gebeuren )
