“Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2012

In my opinion you get more than you pay for- helpful concierge, cool bar and restaurant downstairs, clean chic rooms, lots of hot water, and free apples! We were able to leave our bags at the hotel while we left town for a few days. It's also easy to get to from the airport via the Aerobus. We went with our young son, but this hotel would be good for couples, too. It's a 10 minute walk to lots of shopping but in a quiet neighborhood. We will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms have a "view" of the trash chute- ask for a room with a real view if you are pl...

On a recent trip through Spain and Portugal, we stumbled on this amazing boutique hotel just by chance when reading a NYT article on barcelona the week before. We couldnt be happier. Everything from the staff to the food to the rooms was idyllic. We loved it so much, and the staff was so accommodating that when our flight home from London was canceled and we had to come back, we stayed here again. Fantastic place.

A block away from the Gran Via where the airport shuttle conveniently dropped us off, this quaint little boutique hotel is hidden in a little passage, but nonetheless easy to find.
We got there early, so our room was not yet ready. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and suggested for us to wait in the restaurant.

The gorgeous dining area, kept in white with black and gold accents, serves a very affordable daily lunch menu. After having read several positive reviews about it, and being tired from yet another early morning, we gladly accepted the opportunity to test the Mediterranean food right where we were, instead of wandering around for a spot to grab a bite. We noticed that the restaurant filled up quickly with a diverse crowd of tourists and locals alike.

Our room was spacious (not always a given in Spain), with modern Asian style, a large bed with crisp white cotton sheets and free Wifi. I read about the famed shower on other Tripadvisor reviews and thought it was exaggerated to rate a hotel according to their showers, but I was wrong. After 4 days in a tiny Parisian bathroom, this black tile bathroom with wonderfully relaxing rainshower was a dream come true.

The soundproofing could use some improvement and we could hear whenever neighbors would walk through hallways and slam the doors.

A nice little touch were the unlimited complimentary bottles of water and apples made available for the guests to bring out.

Market Hotel is about a 15min leisurely walk from Las Ramblas through the lively El Ravel district. We enjoyed walking through the narrow cobblestone streets and felt safe evening late at night. It's also nearby a metro station and the San Antoni market.

Location, room, restaurant and staff were all excellent and we would be booking Market Hotel again on our next trip to Barcelona.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Barcelona for those few days stop over, you need look no further than the Market Hotel. This small hotel located near La Rambler is clean, tidy, quiet and offers a reasonable breakfast, at reasonable rates. Close to the markets with many tapas bars and bakeries close by for that quick coffee and pastry. We found the staff helpful and multi-lingual, wi-fi, and a great restaurant and tapas bar on site if you want to stay put, the restaurant a little pricey but quality good. The black tiles in drenching shower and stand up stone basin show a bit of water stain through use, and there is little storage for clothing, if you want to stay for a prolonged period. Depending on traffic about 30 minutes by taxi from airport.

Room Tip: The hotel entrance in a small lane so front rooms that face the main road have access to a shared ba...

We stayed at the Market Hotel in Barcelona for three nights and found it comfortable and a great value. It was conveniently located, we could walk or subway to all the important sights.
Our room was large amnd comfortable with a very well appointed bathroom, though there was no view. The restaurant was quite good, and filled with locals. The bar was great as was the bartender...he gave us lots of great advice about where to go, when to go and what to eat. All in all, I would certainly go back when I visit Barcelona again.

Easy walk from the 2nd stop off the Aerobus. Farther than I'd like from the Metro (Poble Sec) that goes direct to where we wanted. Friendly and informed guest relations. Easy walk to Ramblas and Olympic Park. Nice little restaurant across the street for quick breakfast. Hotel Tapas Dinner in Bar and Breakfast promo was perfect for our needs. Restaurant was very busy. Standard room was very well priced. Bath sheets with heated towel rack and great shower. Comfortable beds, secure entry, elevator, lousy TV(so what), Internet much better in bar. Never concerned about location. Will return.

This hotel was an unexpected find and we were pleasantly surprised considering the price we paid. Overall the hotel is in a relatively convenient location a few stops on the metro near the main center and also close to the airport bus station. The hotel rooms are located in a building that is mixed with local residents (with sections partitioned) so you feel like you're living like a local.
The nice parts:
The room contains the basic amenities and the hotel also gives complementary bottles of water and apples to guests at the front desk. The rooms are bigger than expected and there's plenty of space to leave luggage open. Pretty clean too. The staff was friendly and offers good suggestions for dinner / lunch / snack options. The hotel bar is nice.
The ok parts:
Shower has no shower curtain or piece of glass so I ended flooding the floor each time and there's also no air vent in the bathroom and this can get quite hot. The air conditioning also magically turns on/off in the middle of the night every night.
The strange part
On 2 of the evenings, our neighbour kept slamming the door at 4am and calling "luca" for about 15min. It felt like he was standing at the foot of our bed and yelling at us. Sound proofing could be better but then again this might be our neighbour more than anything
