We booked 3 nights at Sonder Los Arcos in Bari Gothic, having previously experienced an exceptional stay at a Sonder in Milan. Our room in Bari Gothic was pristine. Definitely exceeded our expectations. Unfortunately noise from a club located in the same building or next door kept us awake all night. Our fault for booking in that area! (Perfect for 20s and 30s :-) We spoke to Ricardo at the front desk the next morning, who graciously agreed to find us a room in another Sonder hotel in the Gracia area of Barcelona. Again, the room was perfect. All of the staff we came into contact with were professional, extremely accommodating and a pleasure to meet. If we could give 10 stars, we would. Thank you for your outstanding service, Ricardo and Sonder hotels.

Perfectly placed little hotel with great view over the university square. Right next door to a metro stop and walkable to all the main sites. Staff were lovely too. Great breakfast place below the hotel - Juice Dudes - with lovely coffee.

I had the best time during my stay at Sonder Casa Luz. The decor of the whole hotel, but especially the room was amazing. Check in process was super easy, and I was able to leave my bags before my room was ready. The room was beautiful, massive comfy bed, amazing shower, can’t fault it at all. I also visited the hotel rooftop bar/restaurant on my first night. The cocktails were amazing, and the bartender even made me some that were not on the menu, and was very easy to talk too (as I was travelling on my own, this was much appreciated!) Overall, I could not fault this place at all. I have already booked another Sonder stay, this time in Edinburgh, but I would love to come and stay at Casa Luz again!

The location is very good. Easily accessible with Aerobus A2. Walkable distance to most of the tourist attractions such as the Casa Batllo and La Ramba. The staff service was awesome, in particular the timely whatsapp communication. The room was clean, spacious and the balcony was lovely. The central heater making the room temperature very comfortable. One deduction point was that the hotel roof top restaurant wasn't opened on the night we stayed. Not sure if it's because of the the Three Festival when we arrived the city.

The stay was perfect! Entrance was clean and stylish. Elevators were great, front desk was more that helpful adn super friendly. Room was perfect. Very clean and accommodating. The balcony was small but good. We stayed in a room with bunk beds and my daughter cut herself pretty badly on a sharp area.

This was one of my worst hotel experiences. I’m always hopeful when I enter the lobby of a hotel I’m staying at but this time I felt a bit of concern. The lobby usually indicates the level of care for the hotel and the people that great you are an indication of care for you and professionalism of the staff. When we entered the lobby we could see that it was worn and tattered that was not the sign I was hoping for. We were met by a nice young woman that while nice not very professional. I felt like I had entered the lobby of a hostel. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with staying at a hostel. The problem is that when you pay for a hotel, you should get a satisfactory hotel experience. That includes professional management and facilities managed at a professional level. When we arrived to our room my initial worry was realized. Right as I entered I could see black mold growing on the wall at the entry to the bathroom (see photo). This is simply terrible and is telling of the level of care this facility gets. When I complained I got a response that this would be looked into quickly. A departure from the realty that it has been growing for months and no one had done anything about it. My room 510 was located just below the roof top bar/restaurant, which by the way has the rudest and seemingly snobbiest staff I’ve seen at a place that is really very unremarkable. The view not great, the food not remarkable, the service just ok, the hosts staff rude and snobby. The location of my room in relation to this restaurant is important because all night you could hear chairs being dragged across the floor until well past midnight. Pretty annoying to say the least. This hotel was terrible for me. It seems that many others have enjoyed their stay here. Perhaps most of them have been able to escape the terror of room 510.
