Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Astoria Barcelona
will go back to the astoria!from lauriec
Place is spotless, staff very helpful, spoke English, breakfast buffet was included in our rate and was very good. Beds comfortable, GREAT shower and towels...
Would definitely stay there again!
And Barcelona was super - even in November, cannot wait to come back in warmer weather. Perfect location of mountains and beach, with elegant city, great art and architecture, great food, loved the chocolate shops, friendly people-
Great valuefrom Helen007
The hotel now boasts a small swimming pool, and a roof-rop terrace with sunbeds and tables and parasols though we rarely saw anyone out there - but great views!!
Staff very friendly, rooms spotlessly clean, comfortable beds and a great location. Ten minutes walk to Passeig de Gracia and the Gaudi Buildings. Several little cafes nearby where you can have breakfast - we used the Jockey Club for breakfast and Bar Paris for our late-night coffees and brandies!!
Don't be put off by the sex shop 2 doors away - never saw any dodgy looking characters hanging around in the vicinity - think it is just like a Spanish Anne Summers!!
ll be backfrom MistaMeldrew
Its a little way out in the Eixample district, about 20 min walk to the centre of the Ramblas, which can be good or bad depending on what you need. It suited us perfectly as we prefer to stay in a more quiet classy area and go into the more hectic areas when we want.Clean,nice classic decor and nice fluffy towels, good neighbourhood. Friendly, helpful reception staff.The pool is a glorified footbath but thats ok.Unless your rate includes breakfast, take a walk. Try El Trobador(turn left out of the hotel 50metres), or my favourite,Farga.(Walk up Enric Granados past El Trobador and turn right onto avenue Diagonal - 200metres, number391.Excellent selection of all sorts of pastries for a 'pick your own' breakfast. Plenty of nice eateries around the area.Shop around for rates and check out directly with the hotel itself for special deals.Leave your car behind - those crazy buslanes- those crazy drivers, bumper car parking is a good spectator activity. Use public transport which is fine.Fell for Barcelona big time - what a lovely city. We'll be back, and we'll stay at the Astoria.
Great Value for Money Says This Finicky Travelerfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The room was modestly elegant and modern with fine air-conditioning, thick towels, and comfortable bed. I was surprised and pleased at the value for money.
As for the location, I appreciated the quiet elegance of the Diagonal. The Rambla got wearying and touristy after a while. The Astoria is far from the sea, so if you're looking to beach it often, I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
For everything else, however, I find the Astoria was perfect. The breakfast had serano ham, other meats and cheeses, and a myriad of other early-morning foods. The coffee was strong and smooth. Since breakfast lasts until 11am, it can be a brunch-y experience, helpful to tide one over in late-lunching Spain.
Speaking of lunch, try the cod specialties and the crema Catalana at the Troubador, a fine restaurant just around the corner. It is one of several Troubador locations. This one is on a quiet pedestrian street with plenty of outdoor tables that pick up the delightful breezes. The food is fresh and well prepared.
I am a rather finicky traveler and found the Astoria to be a terrific find. As long as you avoid rooms near the elevator, you'll have a terrific stay.
very nice place to stayfrom jet029
The Astoria Hotel (a *** Derby Hotel ) is located off avenue Diagonal in the Eixample district. Located in an ideal part of Barcelona and accessible to all the stores, transportation, restaurant and sightseeing, the interior of the hotel is decorated in the Art-deco mode with sculptures and furniture representative of that era. Our room was nicely decorated with black and white floor tile and included a nice sized bathroom. The buffet breakfast at 12€ is over-priced and you’d be better off seeking out the small cafés around the area. We used Bar Paris Cafeteria down the street, which was very popular with the locals. Note that parking is very expensive and since we didn’t need the car for our three day stay opting instead to use public transportation or walk, we parked at a garage recommended by the hotel (located very near by) and left it there at a cost of 20€ plus 7% tax/per day.
Excellent value for moneyfrom AM_Gilbert
The Astoria - Well worth a visit!from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel is situated just inside the Diagonal and we found that La Sagrada Familia and La Rambla were within comfortable walking distance. The red and blue route tourist buses also stop at Francesc Macia-Diagonal, which is little more than five minutes away.
Breakfasts are OK - cereals, cooked meats, fresh fruits and bread etc - no full English, but you don't really come to Barcelona for that, do you? - but avoid the scrambled egg! We did not use the restaurant as there are plenty of eating places within easy reach.
Overall - well worth a visit.
Hotel fine but too far outfrom stephenc
My advice to anyone thinking of going is to try to get a hotel around the Barri Gotic area or the Place de Catyluna - there you will be within walking distance to most things and wont have to walk best part of a mile every night from the nightlife.
Having said that, it is about 2 streets away from the diagonal which is a terrific place to shop.
Thanks to previous reviewers for giving us an insight into hotel
Lovely classic hotelfrom Hollidayman

Top vegi place - Juicy Jones Great value food and really tasty.It is just off the Ramblas. On the left hand side from Place de Catalunya towarrds the sea. Turn left after 5 or so mins - you will see a Haagan Daaz ice cream shop. Go pass HD and down the steps. Turn right and on your right is a juice bar. The restaurant is at the back. There do an all day menu for 8.50 and the food is really great.
Do not miss the Majic Fountain show Not every guide book tells you this, but DO NOT MISS the fantastic color and light show of the Majoc FOuntain in Barcelona (check the website for times)
