“Nice hotel, very good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2011

We stayed at Reding Hotel in September and plan to stay here again when we get to return in June. The room was very nice and roomy and well appointed with bathrobes and a mini-fridge. We did not eat at the hotel preferring to have coffee or juice and a pastry at one of the fabulous bakeries along Carrer dels Tarrers on our 5min, 2 block walk to the top of Las Ramblas.

I agree with other reviewers comments about the thin walls and room noise issues. Our wall was shared with a couple of young Germans who liked to return home after midnight and talk loudly about their adventures of the evening. My daughter speaks a little German so we were pretty much fully informed of the events of their night as well!

The front desk staff was helpful when asked but not always as friendly/welcoming as one might like. The hotel is well located, close to Universitat metro and walking distance to Casa Milá and the block of discord if you have your european walking legs warmed up. Don't miss the Sagrada Familia (not walking distance) and see the interior with the audio guide as it is truly amazing even if you aren't a fan of the modernista style.

Time your visit to La Boquería on Las Ramblas so you can enjoy some food. The crepes were excellent (we had the fig, honey and goat cheese one, Yum!) and the Bacalao croquettes were delicious.

The hotel graciously stored our luggage for the day on checkout day since our night train to Granada wasn't until 9:30 pm. We really appreciated that!

We stayed in this hotel with my sister for one night in May and the hotel was perfect for our purposes. Staff was nice and helpful. Everything within easy walking distance: shops and restaurants. just what we needed before leaving Catalonia. The receptionist arranged a very early taxi for us for the airport and the driver was in time. So, all went as planned and the hotel in general left a very good impression.

In a side street some 10 minutes walk from Catalunya Place this hotel is very convenient for a stay in Barcelona.

Staff are courteous, multilingual and helpful. Rooms are fair size for a 3 star hotel and recently decorated. The one we stayed in (504) was equipped with all the usual amenities including a rather weak aircon) and comfortable beds. Breakfast was plentiful and with a wide range of food, based on a European continental style (i.e: no waffles....). There's also a pleasant cafe/bar in the hotel.

Central Barcelona tends to be noisy but as the hotel is on a side street it's not too bad. If you ask for an inside room they tend to be quieter anyway.

Lots of bars and cafe within a very short walking (staggering?) distance

Good place to stay, helpful staff, good breakfast, good location, good price.

Room Tip: Choose an inside room (no view to outside world just a light-well in the centre of the building...

We spent a couple of days with my family (incl. 5 years old kids) in this place. It is located quite nice, relatively short (15 min) way from Rambla and Cataunya Place. Breakfast are not vey big but good enough to find something to eat for everybody, including kids, rooms are not very big but good enough to spend the night. Service is a very strong point of this place.

I was very happy with this hotel. This was my second visit to Barcelona and wanted to stay in the catalunya/universidad area, as it was familiar, convenient, and just steps away from everything. The metro was literally steps away, catalunya, ramblas and gracia was a short walk for a nice stroll in the evenings. The automatic doors
were manipulated by desk staff, so I felt secure. The staff was helpful. It was clean and modern, rooms of adequate size. Good showers.

We had just arrived from the airport and Hotel Reding was our first encounter with this wonderful city. Instead, we felt like someone had splashed our faces with ice cold water. Staff was cold and indifferent, particularly the individual who was manning the front desk. The front lobby reeked of cheap air freshener, the kind you smell in cheap motels in small towns when you have nowhere else to go. The smell followed us all the way to our rooms and never left. The room was small and claustrophobic and the beds were uncomfortable. We were booked for three nights but that same afternoon, I found a different hotel and checked out the next day.

Room Tip: Don't trust photos
