My fourth stay at this great little hotel and i will be back again soon. Staff are always so friendly, the decor is very cool, showers hot and powerful and there are some lovely not so expensive restaurants close by. I love it!

If you want to go to Barcelona,Retrome is perfect choice! It's only 4 blocks from the Center,so you can walk,no metro needed! The girls at the reception were super friendly! We came too early,but they welcomed us with a free coffe and a drink. They also stored out luggage. They gave us a city map and all the informations,that we... More

What made this hotel for us was the location - right next to the Girono metro stop, across the street from a (albeit pricey) grocery store, 20 minute walk to Sagrada Familia, 15 minute walk to Placa Cataluyna (and las Ramblas/shopping). Everything else was a bit disappointing, considering the high mark reviews here on TripAdvisor that were a bit misleading.... More

Hello Devenlynn, Thank you for your review. We appreciate the time you took to write this review. We are happy that you liked our central location, that allowed you to walk to most of the sigh-seeing of Barcelona. We are located in a residential area, so the prices of the restaurants in the area are considerably lower than the very... More

My husband & I prefer smaller hotels, where you can easily feel like a local resident. Our room had a small balcony, large bathroom & comfortable bed. The staff was extremely helpful with information & directions. i would not hesitate to stay again & look forward to visiting the Rome location as well!

It is with some reluctance that I am writing a negative review. As mentioned in another nearby review, this is NOT a hotel, it's more like a hostel or pensione! To summarize: 1) Our room was in an apartment building 2 buildings away from the "hotel" entrance, if you can call it an entrance. Even our taxi driver, who had... More

What a find. We had one of the apt rooms facing onto a lovely inner garden/park. The room(s) were clean and comfortable-everything you needed and a quick text away if you needed something. Great shopping nearby and the metro steps away. Definitely a great place to enjoy Barcelona

We were surprised (actually, shocked) to find the Retrome "hotel" in an apartment building on the floor above street level (you have to buzz to get in when you arrive) with only a small sign outside that's easy to miss. That's where the reception area is, and there are some rooms there. Our "apt/suite" was two doors down in another... More

Dear Binnie, Thank you for your review. It is obvious that your expectation for staying in our accommodation were not met. I assume that you expected to see a hotel with a huge lobby, a piano player, and a lot of bling. Well, this is not our style, and according to the reviews of our guests, they do appreciate (actually,... More

Nice location on a noisy street but with the doors closed it was quiet. We were greated with a cappucino which was very welcoming. Beds were comfortable and the rooms very clean. In room expresso machine was lovely as well as having a hairdryer in the bathroom. We really enjoyed our stay at Retrome.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
