We arrived at the hotel, and was greeted with friendly smiles, this made me immediately think that the staff where trained well. Which they are. They all speak good english, and try their best to be friendly. The room was large, although no view to make a fuzz about. Sadly the minibar, the safe and the phone where faulty so... More

A/C didn't work well, the rooms are tiny, the service is TERRIBLE, do yourself a favor and don't go there. We actually had the same bad experience in Madrid, same thing, bad and rude service, A/C didn't work and the rooms are tiny. The only thing we liked was the location.

My friend and I were both well pleased with this hotel. It has a great location in the Gran Via, just a short walk to the Areanas Mall for great restaurants on the top level and a grand view. The bus stops here as well as the Metro and Taxis. Most of what a tourist wants to see is very... More

Pros: clean, modern, silent rooms. Excellent location next to the Arenas shopping center and Montjuic (with its amazing magic fountain). Very good transportation options. Cons: the operation of the shower and wifi could be better, pricey breakfast.

I've been in Ayre Hotel Granvia twice and I really enjoyed staying there. Rooms are clean and very good looking. The hotel is near Montjuic and the magic fountain and very close to the underground and to the wonderful Arenas department store. I really suggest you to go there if you choose Barcelona ^^ Enjoy!

This property is modern and quite contemporary for a European city hotel. Rooms are decent size, we stayed on the Gran Via side and street noise was minimal. No iron in the room, but there is a hair dryer. Front desk staff was cordial and helpful, but not particularly outgoing. The breakfast buffet is great and offers one of the... More

I made the mistake of booking this room prior to my wedding.

Staying in Montjuic

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyond the four columns standing guard at the Plaça Espanya, beyond even the extravagant and colourful fountains guiding your way up the boulevard, stands the impressive and towering structure of the Palau Nacional, the national museum. At this very spot in front of the cascades of the central fountain, Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe gave the performance of their lifetimes to welcome the 1992 Olympic Games to this magnificent city. And true to its anticipation, the games transformed the city, reimagining the mountain of Montjuic with the development of an arena, stadium, and many other sporting facilities that are open to visitors year-round. Surrounding the adjacent side of the plaza are well-established hotels catering to business guests and a shopping mall transformed out of a historic bullfighting arena.
