Quaint art deco hotel in the midst of EVERYTHING!

Pros: The location The friendly staff The art deco style
Cons: the breakfast and the restaurant area is dismal.
Location: Gothic quarter - cathedral, Picasso museum, quaint little cafe's down the back streets
This little hotel is really quiet special. Its art deco décor and feel is something quiet unique. Situated just off the las ramblas in the majestic streets of the gothic quarter, it is pretty much in the middle of everything. great links to las ramblas, the hop on off buses, the airport bus, train links and the port. The hotel rooms are very clean and has air con if needed, the view was something to be desired but you cant have everything. The reception staff were very helpful in providing recommendations for restaurants and places to see, although we had already got our list prepared! the breakfast was not the best but did the job, juice, coffee, pastries, etc. If your looking for a little hub to do all your touring from and not cost the earth then this is perfect.

Central location in Barcelona ideal stay for short

Pros: A bit of old fashioned elegance.
Cons: Breakfast could be cheaper.
Location: Central off La Ramblas,good position for walking to lots of city sites and plenty of cafes shops and tapas bars around.
Pleasant staff,well situated hotel for city visit,comfortable beds and spotlessly clean room and ensuite.Hotel breakfast pricey though.

Enjoyable short break

This was the second time we have stayed at the Nouvel Hotel. It has plenty of character and charm and the staff are really friendly and helpful. It is also close to the Plaza Catalunya and La Rambla, so it's in the perfect location!

Great Location

Nice smell upon entering the hotel with beautiful Art Deco interior, very clean and friendly staff. Disappointed with two single beds pushed together, I had hoped and specified when booking online for a double bed. Really, really noisy room! You can hear people running baths, flushing toilets and generally walking around above and next door. Extremely noisy outside but I guess that's to be expected so close to the hustle and bustle. Although, I didn't expect dustbin Lorries to collect trash bags between 12:00-1am each morning (not sure if this is normal, perhaps it's because it's the Easter weekend?). Would have been nice to have had a kettle in our room, we've stayed in 3* before where this amenity is provided. I packed in a hurry so hoped to iron my bits as I went along, I was surprised when there was no iron available (apparently not a service they provide) so I had to wear my creased clothes throughout my stay. We wouldn't stay here again but that's not down to the hotel or lovely staff, more so not being able to sleep a wink.

Perfect location and very reasonable price

Very nice hotel, location only a few mins from Placa De Catalunya which is where the aerobus drops you off from the airport. I did have a small issue with the room temperature on the first day, but was resolved quickly. Staff friendly and attentive. Offered advice and discounted tickets on Tour bus of the city. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Location, Location, Location.

Stayed 4 nights, travelling as a solo passenger. On arrival the lady on reception was very nice and explained a number of things regarding the hotel, i.e breakfast was 11 euros, 20 euros for a remote control for the t.v, but you had it back at the end of your stay, 1 euro plus for use of the room safe. My room was very small, basic, but spotless. The bathroom again was spotless and looked brand new with good water pressure from the shower. The whole hotel was spotless and you could not find any fault on that note. Just outside the hotel,turn left and there are a number of cafe/bars for food. Location is perfect for everything, could not be faulted. Would I stay there again ? A big YES.

The first hotel I've ever seen that charged for the TV remote and use of the safe. Also, no wifi in room or even in lobby. Otherwise friendly helpful staff (who did print boarding passes for me for free) and an excellent central buut quiet location.

Quick city break

This is the second time staying in this hotel, once in summer and then in december. Ideally located being near to the ramblas and the bus terminus at plaza catalunya. The staff were very helpful to me. Our room was cleaned daily despite not needing it. More of an olde world look about it. Will probably go back there again if I visit barcelona again. Well recommended

Perfect location

We had five great nights with delicious breakfasts. Perfect location, excellent room and facilities with a first class restaurant next to hotel. Would go back there and recommend it. Good value for money and an easy point to explore the rest of Barcelona from.
