“Excellant location, great experience”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

This was a great hotel. huge bathroom, lovely room with a king sized bed, lots of closet space. We were just a short walk north of the Placa de Catalunya and very close to the Ramblas. Very close to the metro. We enjoyed the food at the hotel restaurant. Just an excellant location.

The hotel is perfectly placed for the beach, the underground and the Gothic area. The staff was friendly and caring, they gave us many suggestions about what to do and where to eat. The room was clean, spacious and the bed more than comfortable. Very quiet and relaxing. Breakfast was delicious with a large variety to choose from. Me and my wife, we both enjoyed our stay very much.

The hotel is in a perfect location for city attractions. Had a very nice stay for 3 nights and would certainly come back again if in Barcelona again. Lovely place just across the street for breakfast (Hot chocolate and Churros).

We had an inside room and it was very small and only a fan. Very noisy and didn't clean room until 6 pm.

As a hotel for a business stay this fits the bill, bed was comfortable with enough room to work and breakfast was plentiful. The central location will appeal to all travellers.

Great location one half block off the Ramblas in downtown Barcelona. Room rate was very competitive for this location, but the room was very small, and very HOT with no way to cool it off. This was in November, and it was very hard to sleep. There was one window which opened to a light shaft (a 3-meter by 3-meter open space that lead up to the roof) plus a tiny window in the bathroom that opened to the elevator shaft, but even leaving them open all day, the room was HOT HOT HOT. There was no AC available, and no fans at the front desk. In the summer, the AC might be activated, and the rooms could be cooled off, but I would not stay here again in the winter.

The breakfast buffet was simple but good.

The bed was comfortable.

There is no clock in the room. This was a problem, as SpanAir had smashed my travel alarm INSIDE my luggage!

The in-room internet was not working for a day or two, but eventually got fixed. As a backup, there was wireless available in the lobby, but with several users on it, it was so slow at times to be worthless.

Did I mention the room was very small? It would be very cramped for two people, although the bathroom was big enough to have two sinks.

The TV had limited selections in English, and even more limited in other languages. This is in contrast to another hotel I'd stayed at just previously, that had a good selection of channels in all major languages.

What's great about Eurostars Cristal Palace is it's location and price (at least at the time I was there, in late November).

The younger front desk staff was enthusiastic and helpful, and one young woman went out of her way to help me find a voltage adapter so I could plug in my shaver. (Unlike many European hotels, the Cristal Palace does not have a 110V outlet available in the bathroom.)

The young man in the breakfast area, from Morocco, was very pleasant and personable.

Room Tip: If you can get a room with a window that actually opens to the outside, you have a chance of cooling...

This hotel isn't "luxurious" but certainly is comfortable, clean, and in a perfect location. Quiet too since it's one block off the major cross street. Our room had two sinks in the bathroom and a desk so for a European hotel it was spacious. Beds were comfortable though could have used an extra pillow / quilt maybe.
