The location is excellent, but I knew when I was took this hotel. But reality is even more surprizing considering the quality of the hotel and the staff.

Excellent raport price/location/quality for business/pleasure trips.

Amazing location and very comfortable rooms with a lovely decoration. Very friendly and helpful staff. Anything that we asked was provided within minutes. Breakfast is an excellent choice of nice Mediterranean food. Definitively good value for money. I still cannot believe that it is rated as a 3 stars hotel! I will come back.

We stayed in a junior suite which was a lovely room,well decorated and very clean, but not a suite in the normal sense of the word(i.e. more than one room). It was on the first floor and there was some traffic noise - not a problem if you are used to city life but probably annoying if you are used to peace and quiet. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful when asked but didn't volunteer anything. We did not have breakfast but enjoyed a free cup of tea one afternoon. Lovely for me and my 12 year old - conveniently located near the metro - but probably less good for much younger children.

This was a great option for the best city in Europe, Great location, helpfull staff, clean rooms. Rooms are modern and clean, not overstated. If you want to a place near the best shopping and restaurants, Actual is the place, if you are looking for luxury and ammenities. this is not the place. Look into upgrading to a suite for a little bit more. Still is my place to stay in BCN hands down

Room Tip: No swimming pool or gym at this hotel, try to upgrade to a suite.

This hotel is well-located, stylish and comfortable. Rooms are small, but well-equipped, comfortable and clean. Decent breakfast available on-site, or a selection of bakeries just steps away. All this at a reasonable price!

This was a great boutique hotel, in an excellant location. We could see a Gaudi building out of room. The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful and the lobby was very nice. The rooms are simple and understated, but served their purpose. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for the price and the location.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of Casa Mila.

The hotel is centrally located on Passeig de Gracia where there are many shops & restaurants. It is located just around the corner after La Pedrera on Rossello street. We had made a reservation through Booking.com and were given a room on the 6th floor with an amazing view of Gaudi's La Pedrera (or Casa Mila) from our room window. Our room was spacious and had a modern feel to it & the bathroom was large. If you push the room window correctly, you will be able to make quite a significant opening to let the cool fresh air in. Free wifi is available in the hotel & there is a PC at the lobby for free access to internet.

The metro station 'Diagonal' is a few steps away from the hotel. Casa Batllo is about 5 min walk. While La Rambla about 15min walk. The hop on & off bus stop is on the left of the hotel (in front of La Pedrera). Very convenient.

There is a small cafe on the right of the hotel just a few doors away (beside the Hotel Next To). It serves a good breakfast for 3 Euros per person (bocadillo/sandwich + 1 drink/tea/coffee/juice). .

Tip:If you intend to take the Hop On & Off Bus Turistic, or plan to visit Sagrada church or Casa Batllo or La Pedrera, ask the hotel reception for the voucher booklet. It costs Euro4 per person. Contains discount vouchers for various tourist attractions.The hop on & off bus costs Euro23. It costs Euro17 after you show the coupon (discount of E6 per person), Nede to show one coupon per person. 10% off Casa Batllo & La Pedrera coupon inside. Euro 1 discount for Sagrada Familia.

We took the airport bus from Barcelona El Prat airport. Costs Euro 6.50 per person one way, about 30 minutes. Alight at the last stop @ Placa Catalunya. The bus stop was under construction at the time so they alighted us along Passeig de Gracia, even nearer to Hotel Actual. Walk towards the direction of La Pedrera or Casa Batllo. Once you pass La Pedrera, walk ahead till the end of the block and turn right to Rossello street. The hotel is just a few steps from the main street of Passeig de Gracia. .

We will most definitely stay at this hotel again.
