Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Pulitzer

Great Location and Style in Barcelona

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went to this hotel last summer with my wife and I had a great time.
This hotel offers one of the best locations: steps away from las Ramblas. If you want to enjoy the best of Barcelona's nightlife, this is the place to be. This must be one of the best hotels in the city, with a beautiful rooftop bar and a neat and unique interior design.
We are planning to come back to this hotel for certain next july, when we are visiting the city again.

Great hotel - where was the air-conditioning?

from A TripAdvisor Member
My mother and I booked at the Clarion Pulitzer on the basis of positive reviews on this website, and overall we were not disappointed. We found the staff genuinely warm and helpful, and felt at home and looked after. We loved the decor, which is modern, stylish and very relaxing. The rooms are clean and well laid-out, with comfortable beds, dimmable lighting, safe, mini-bar fridge, a desk etc.; the bath was huge, with a powerful shower, and the towels, flannels and complimentary toiletries were changed daily. The lounge/bar area is a good size, with an adjoining courtyard garden, nice for relaxing with a book; the roof-terrace would be good on a summer evening. The continental breakfast items were delicious - lashings of coffee and freshly squeezed fruit-juice, choice of teas, cereals, breads and rolls, hams and cheese, and fresh sliced fruit including water-melon and pineapple. The "English" breakfast items (scrambled egg, bacon and sausage) was however poor, and not improved by lying around on the buffet. Well, when in Barcelona. . .

We ate in the hotel restaurant on the three nights - Thursday, Friday and Saturday - it was open, and found the food delicious and innovative. Other nights we headed out towards the Eixample area and found restaurants which opened as early as 7.30 pm if you prefer, like us, to eat earlier; also this area feels rather safer than around the Ramblas. Having said that, we did not feel too threatened despite the shady characters around Catalunya Square. I think if you keep alert and look as if you are alert, and keep bags over the head and to the front of the body, you will probably not be targetted. My 79-year-old mother felt fairly safe.

The big disappointment was to find that the air-conditioning was not turned on when we arrived on 26th April, and we were informed that Barcelona hotels usually do not turn the air-con on until the second week of May. However, the weather was unusually warm at 25 degrees, and we did suffer a bit until it was turned on on the fourth night of our stay - I expect after other complaints from us used-to-being-chilly Brits. Having said this, the staff responded to our initial complaint by offering us a choice of four other rooms, and we settled for one at the back (I think these are larger) on the second floor. I would recommend 1st/2nd floor rooms at the back, as they are protected from street noise by another building. We were thus able to control the temperature by pulling the curtains across during the day and opening windows at night. I assume this would only be a problem in the gaps between colder and warmer weather, but it might be worth checking with the hotel before booking in April (or presumably the autumn as well).

Another point – if you are planning to pay by credit card, make sure it is one with a chip-and-pin, as the hotel (and other restaurants) no longer have the facility for a credit card with signature.

Apart from this, I can thoroughly recommend the hotel for a comfortable, friendly, relaxing stay at a very convenient point to access all the sights.

Great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent two night here with a friend on a shopping expedition. We selected this hotel after reading the reviews and were not dissapointed, Fantastic location right on Placa de Catalunya. Booked through Expedia, rooms small but of high standard, clean & fantastic bathrooms. Excellent roof terrace & bar. Would definitely stay again.

We love the Pulitzer!

from sftravel
My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Europe. While in Barcelona, we stayed at the Pulitzer for 6 nights and cannot rave enough about it. The hotel itself is very nice - although the rooms are on the small side, the bed was very comfortable and the bathrooms are nicely decorated. The hairdryer works well and the towels are large and fluffy. The in-room safe is also a nice feature for passports, money, etc. Breakfast was included with our rate and was absolutely fabulous. The food selection was wonderful, there was something for everyone. The staff at the Pulitzer is very helpful and friendly. They gave us great recommendations for restaurants and also made the reservations for us. Besides the actual hotel, one of the best things about the Pulitzer is the location. In my opinion, you can't really ask for a more central location in Barcelona. It is on a quieter side street but still within walking distance to many important sights. We would definitely stay at the Pulitzer again!

A wonderful choice for Barca

from janewinebox
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early April, and we would definitely return, no question. It's on a side street right next to Placa Catalunya, v. convenient to anywhere you want to go, and we were not bothered by street noise. The staff was excellent, quite friendly and helpful. I saw desk staff switch between english, spanish, catalan, and french without batting an eye, and they helped us make arrangements to the airport (cab ride was about 25EUR, 35 minutes on a weekday morning) and lent us an ethernet cable to use the broadband connx in the room.

The pics on the hotel website are quite accurate. The desk, lobby, and bar are tasteful and modern, very comfortable. Glass elevators, and you can look down from all floors to see the bar area and check out what's going on. The roof terrace is nice too.

Our room was on the small side at the end of a hall as we booked through expedia, but perfectly decorated, very sleek and modern w/ hardwood floors, marble bath, flat panel tv mounted on the wall, lots of dark wood. V. comfortable double bed, and windows opened. You control the thermostat, and the lights are all on dimmers. They provide robes, slippers, lots of towels, hair dryer, and other toiletries.

We checked out the bar one night, and it's a fairly quiet but relaxing scene with lots of seating on couches. Great bartenders. The restaurant was nice too, we ate a delicious breakfast there each day, and they have everything you could possibly want.

If you are a light sleeper, you might be disturbed by noise from other guests. The doors all have a tendancy to close heavily, and you can hear voices from the hall now and then. Nothing earplugs wouldn't take care of, and it didn't really bother us. We also didn't check out the health club next door, but were told we were entitled to free passes. Maybe next time.

dissapointed with expensive nice hotel,

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just returned from barcelona spain, vienna, prague, budapest and munich germany,
Barcelona , spain,- do not stay at the clarion pulitzer near las ramblas, I arrived in the evening, they took my credit card, passport information, and I had requested a restaurant for me and my kids to go out to eat at. we went out, came back, and the next morning when i wanted to ck out. there was a dinner charge from the hotel on my bill, the only way, from that evening until the next morning to get a charge on my bill was from the staff using my information and trying to sign the dinner charge with my name. to my room. In other words make sure you ck your bill before leaving the hotel. they have some scam going on . Las ramblas is not a safe area, either are the subways, the so called gypsies are causing distractions so others can pickpocket you, i witness it on the subway with an accordian player. they work in teams . I saw wallets getting passed and within seconds the person was off the subway. be careful. the food in barcelona was not the best either unless you like shrimp w/the heads on them or at fancy restaurants. the hoof and leg of the animal clamped in a device in the middle of the dining room, it was not very appealing to me.
On the positive side, there is alot to do there, the on /off sightseeing bus was wonderful, sagradia familiar is best to see 1st thing in the morning, climbing up all the stairs, is definitly tiring on the legs, they shook for 5 minutes after i came down. the view is amazing up there, yes and there is a elevator with a long wait. anyways, glad to be back in the usa!!!

Great rooms, fantastic service

from A TripAdvisor Member
We just got back from Barcelona and can tell you that this hotel is fabulous. The rooms are modern and sleek and comfortable in terms of space. More importantly, the hotel staff were extremely helpful and went well beyond our expectations.

My wife and I got shellfish poisoning during our last night. They were very sympathetic and did everything they could to make us comfortable including going to the pharmacy to pick up the prescription drugs - this was something we would never expect a hotel to do. Furthermore, seeing our unfavourable position, they even gave us a complimentary late check-out until 7PM.

The location is fantastic - right in the middle of everything in terms of eating, shopping and night life. I'd recommend anyone to stay here.

Great Hotel - really pleased with it.

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Pulitzer for 5 nights. It's a well designed minimalist style hotel. The rooms are very good - we stayed at the front and it's totally quiet with the windows closed. With them open ( we like the fresh air and it was fresh, believe me), it's still ok since it's not a very noisy street.

It was a cold stay in Barcelona - it snowed for a few hours one day. But it was always a pleasure to come back to the Pulitzer - lovely and warm and staff always welcoming.

The location is ideal for Catalunya Square with quick access to all transport, tourist buses, airport buses and La Rambla.

The staff are really friendly, efficient and helpful. We didn't eat dinner at the hotel but the menu looked good. Breakfast was just right for us - buffet style but staff helping you in their usual efficient way.

We like finding good hotels - it's always a pleasant surprise. This is a good one. We'd very happily go back - now if we could.

And, it confirmed how useful Tripadvisor is. We had booked another hotel until we read their reviews ( yes, I know, I should have done that first ). We cancelled and found this via Tripadvisor.

First Class Hotel

from delsuth
We stayed for a long weekend just before Christmas and found the hotel to be perfect. fabulous decor , wonderful service, and a first rate location...... its a pity we can't keep it for ourselves!! we'll be back to Barcelona and will not consider staying elsewhere.

Fantastic hotel

from PLBNorthernIreland
Like all the other reviews we read, we loved this hotel. Service was superb and the reception staff were friendly, helpful and great at recommending restaurants to visit in the evenings, they even booked them for us and orgnised taxis. The reataurant in the hotel was excellent too and very reasonably priced. The rooms were very cool - a bit like the Morrison Hotel in Dublin, minimalist and chic. Can't wait to go back

Top Local Tips for Barcelona

Getting from airport to hotel I took a taxi from BCN to Hotel Pulitzer for $50.00 US; after some research recently (because I am returning this October) there is an Aerobus that takes passengers from airport directly to Placa Cataluyna, a mere block or less from the hotel. Cost? about 5. Euros; some savings; only have to lug juggage a short short way. If you are a twosome or more then a private car would be the way to go.

Taxis Familiarise yourself with the meter on the taxi and make sure you are not being ripped off. During the day the tarif should be set to 1, this changes at night and on bank holidays. The fare from the airport to the city centre should be no more than 25 euros, and thats in heavy traffic.

Great food, very reasonably priced! You have to go to Creme de Canela in Placa reial, the food is superb and surroundings are lovely. It's extremely good value as well - we had a meal for four with starters, mains and wine for under 70 euros! Avoid quinze nitz opposite the food is edible but nothing to write home about and for the same price you can eat at Creme de Canela!
