Cannot recommend, a bad hotel

Not enough lights for reading, no bagage help,no bedspreads for the two cots used for beds,no english TV, too many steps in lobby and halls for seniors, pictures used forthe web do not reflect what we saw.View of Hotel entrance, and the bedroom were not as pictured. Lobby was dreary, banquet room open to lobby was dark and messy except for when they rented it out for tango lessons.
then it was light but still messy. No restrooms off lobby. Also, furniture in bedroom looked homemade, very crude. This was the worst hotel I have ever been in.

Husa Oriente in Barcelona is in an excellent location, The room was very nice, the service was beyond courteous and the continental breakfast was superb. I thought it was a great hotel for the price, in a very special city.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Husa Oriente Hotel

Fantastic Location - clean and comfortable room.

from DuchampLondon
Have just returned from 4 nights at the Husa Oriente (late Jan 2005) and was really impressed by the great location - and - for the price - the nicely renovated (and clean) room. We asked for a renovated balcony room overlooking Las Ramblas and were not disappointed. Fantastic view (third floor) and ambience. Just take ear-plugs if you are a light sleeper. Room not huge, but are you going to Barcelona to stay in your room all day? Good sized modern well maintained bathroom (powerful shower) but with a water system that often needed to be left running for a few minutes before any hot water came out (perhaps this was something to do with Barcelona's coldest winter for years - who knows?). Also why not have some shelves in the bathroom to put your wash gear on? We ended up just dumping washbags and stuff on the floor - management please take note - not a big deal to improve.

Otherwise room was well serviced every day (on request) and the beds (for a six plus footer) were ample and very comfortable (lovely fresh white pillows/linen.) The room heating/air-con was responsive and effective.

The buffet (eat as much as you like) breakfast had a wide choice of cheeses, fruits, meats/hams, breads, cereal, coffee - a vast variety of teas etc. The value of which depends on how much you want to eat (12 Euros).

Staff were attentive and friendly when you wanted them but otherwise discrete. Overall we would go back again - but I fear the price will never be as cheap, so this hotel may not be such good value as it was to us.

great city,poor value hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
O.K. for the one night we spent in Barca but for the price had expected more than a pocket-size room looking at a brickwall. As this was my 60th birthday night out we were disappointed by the hotel and would not return.The corridors were wider than the rooms and hot water was nigh impossible to obtain in the minimalist bath/shower.

AWFUL experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed only one night in Husa Oriente in Barcelona and I was lucky to have to spend only one night there. Reception clerks completely uninterested in their job, tiny and dirty and VERY OLD room with a fan, with a 'beautiful view' of a brick wall some 3 metres away from my window. The only good thing about this hotel is the central location. But I will never come back to that establishment.

Superb location but very ordinary

from PeteLuton_England
Spent the weekend here from 17th to 20th September 2004. The hotel is centrally located on La Rambla and our room had a small private balcony overlooking this very busy and fascinating street. Perfect for people watching. This was the only saving grace as, apart from that, the hotel is very ordinary.

t Bother Staying Here

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is supposed to be the oldest hotel in Barcelona. Since we were into the historical mode during our vacation, it sounded like a perfect place...an old convent with catacombs in the basement, advertised even as a place of interest in most travel books.

Well, first, the management is remodeling not restoring this hotel. Almost anything that used to be historical in the building has been euthanized. The two good things I can say about this hotel is that it is on the Rambla, so you walk out the front door and it's all before you. You can also walk to the waterfront easily. The second thing which I can compliment is the size of the room and bathroom, both huge, but no charm left in either.

They've already taken out almost all of the beautiful lights (you can still find about 3 in the lobby of the hotel and can imagine what it must have been like before these people got ahold of it), removed the historical wooden windows and replaced them with vinyl, taken out the old floors and inserted a pergo-like substitute, removed the original wood or marble moldings, OY, what are they thinking? Isn't there an antiquities preservation society in Barcelona to do battle for these buildings to be protected?

What should be a gorgeous dining room (pictured in all advertisements)... was being equally remuddled. By the time that these owners of the hotel are finished, it won't have anything historical left. Even the marble floors were being ruined. What once were 14 foot tall french doors were being replaced or mistreated. Jack hammers were tearing apart the whole place. The gorgeous chandaliers still hanging in the dining room (how many hundreds of years old?) were left uncovered, and were filthy from dust and dirt flying from the construction project, and being scratched unmercilessly by marble chips and concrete particles. It was sicking to see such history being destroyed by people with no understanding of antiquities or vision of preservation. So, you had no place to eat in the hotel, and the room (altho huge), was sterile with cheap furniture and lights, and very uninviting.

The hotel lobby had harsh overhead lighting, and white-washed walls. The carpet at the front door was filthy. No beauty or charm left in this hotel. Our room faced a side-street, and looked out onto a youth hostel, with all their laundry hanging from the balconies. Needless to say, it was noisy as hell all night with people partying and shouting at 2-6 a.m. Lot's of prostitutes on this street, also.

We also had a pharmacia electric sign hanging right next to our hotel window, although they turn off the sign eventually. So, not only was the view from our room awful...but this was in response to my requesting hotel staff to "give us a wonderful room," when we checked in.

There was no room service, and the only food you could get in the hotel was in the morning, when they had a "buffet" set up. That was a total joke, since there was hardly any food. We also saw the "kitchen," which was dirty and makeshift. Maybe there was some cereal and coffee, but no pastries, eggs, meats, etc. We certainly didn't want to eat there, not only because it would have been a waste of our money (yes, they made you pay extra for it..and this place is expensive), but the dirt in the hotel from construction was all over the place.

Don't bother to stay at this hotel, when there are so many beautiful places in Barcelona.

Great view to Rambla

from Petteri
Stayed here one week. They asked if we want a room with a view to Rambla (a little bit more noisy) or not (not so noisy). We took a room with a view to Rambla and oh my: a bic balcony and an excellent room - is this a dream?

The bathroom was not so special, water coming a little bit slowly. Breakfast ok. Hospitality fine. We enjoyed our week!

And if you don't mind a little street sounds in the night, ask for a room with Rambla-view. It's something fantastic!

Nice Hotel But Very Noisy!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stated at the husa oriente 10th May 04. Our room was very nice all newly decorated, the bathroom was very clean and modern. Breakfast was moderate. We awoke however at 2am to what sounded like a bottle bank collection - you can imagine the noise! Also lots of skips being emptied many times throughout the night. There were also a number of people shouting outside the hotel in the early hours. Get som ear plugs and you will be fine!! Overall - okay, but ear plugs are a must!

One step up from a hostel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Oriente for 4 nights from27th May 2004. The first room we were offered was pitch dark, with a tiny window opening onto a wall, and full of very basic beds like a dormitory. Furniture was non existent apart from a wooden chair and a small table between a couple of the beds.

We refused to accept this and were given a better room, with large windows and a large bathroom, but the standard was still well below what we had come to expect of a 3star hotel in Spain. The furniture was still basic, the room so small that we could not pass each other, and the bathroom tiles were bulging off the walls, the floor tiles were cracked and chipped and the handbasin did not drain properly. The smell of sewage came up through the pipes. The windows opened on to a light well, and rooms were being renovated across from us.
Towels were changed daily, and the bath and basin were cleaned, but otherwise there were no signs of cleaning.
We were caught in the lift twice - once we had to be rescued and the other time the door eventually opened but the lift didn't move again.
When we requested a hairdryer at the desk, they told us they didn't have any.

The hotel is in a great position and has potential - a very grand dining room, with an adequate but boring breakfast, and beautiful function rooms. Perhaps when and if the renovations are ever completed, it would be worth staying there, but at the moment - find somewhere else.

A very disappointing experience

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Oriente because it was reccommended by the travel agent, and although it is only rated as a 3 star hotel, becuase of the cost of the room I at least thought it would be clean and comfortable. Found out when we arrived that the hotel is being renovated, the drilling started first thing in the morning and this was also all we could hear during breakfast. The room was awful. The pictures used of the hotel are extremely misleading as our room was tiny, big enough for a double bed and that's about it. There was grime on the wall and the bathroom was the size of cupboard. I have stayed in other 2 star hotels for less than half the price and the standard was much higher. My advice would be if you are only considering a hotel for it's location than this would be fine as long as you don't mind paying well above the odds for a room that is more like a cheap student hostel. I do have one good thing to say for the Oriente though and that is the staff were very pleasant.

Not the best!

from fur-ball
We stayed at this so called 3* hotel.It was quiet cheap at €80 a night (special offer)When we arrived there was a skip outside the door which was a bit disconcerting.All was quiet inside the hotel until the next morning at 7 oclock. We may as well have be staying on a building site for the next 5 days as the noise was so loud.The staff were not friendly at all. I dont think any of them spoke english.Besides the "building site" the rooms were clean and cleaned by the staff every day. This hotel is very central, pretty basic. If i was going again to Barcelona i would shop around for something better.

Top Local Tips for Barcelona

Cook & Taste Fantastic Spanish Cooking Course! The kitchen is beautiful and is a lovely converted apartment overlooking La Rambla. The day starts with a tour around the markets where the chef buys some of the produce for the day and shares interesting insights. Cook a magnificent spanish feast and learn some local tips and history. Enjoy wine while you cook and taste the amazing results.

Taller de Tapas For excellent, easy-access tapas visit Taller de Tapas in Placa del Pi near La Rambla. Staff speak English (if you wish) and the food is absolutely superb. Can sit in or out (subject to 10% surcharge).

Ramblas Unless you are made of money, I would think twice about drinking in many of the little makeshift bars/restaurants along ramblas. We made the mistake of sitting at one one night and when we asked for large beer we got a steiner (two pinter). It cost 11 euros for just one. These places are linked to hotels etc along ramblas so beware the what you ask for and always check or ask before you sit down. Its pretty dissapoiniting as far as nightlife is concerened, as its difficult to find just a bar without it being a restaurant too. there are many but they take some finding.
