Royal Ramblas Hotel Barcelona Reviews
Perfect location Dec 02, 2008
This hotel is in a perfect location right off the Plaza Catalunya. It was about a 200m walk from the underground, 250m from the bustop. The A1 takes you to and from the airport for about 5Euro; so a real bargain. I made a mistake and forgot my cell phone charging in the hotel so I desembarked the bus on way to the airport to hail a taxi to retrieve my work issued phone. The taxi to the airport was about 30Euro so the bus was a great deal. The hotel had an attached restaurant that had average quality food and that's about it for amenities. It advertised wireless internet that seemed expensive but it didn't matter much for me since I was travelling sans laptop. The staff spoke really good English; very much like everyone in Barcelona much to my disliking since I really wanted to take my Spanish for a test drive. I digress, they were nice and polite but not necessarily friendly or very helpful when I asked for advice or assistance. So again the best thing about this place was the location.
