    « Good location, good room, poor sound insulation »

    Our room was on the top floor, overlooking some office buildings and with a view of a church. A small but serviceable balcony to take in the view. The room was nicely decorated, most of it looked new, although the carpet was a little threadbare. There was a kettle and tray of tea/coffee, although these were not replenished every day. The interior walls were thinner than in my own home. Not only could I hear our next door neighbour shower, I could hear his conversation over the sound of the TV. Partly inconsiderate hotel guest, partly old building layout: but annoying enough to stop me coming back. Location is good, relied on trip advisor for nearby food: very good. Bathroom came with small bottles of bath stuff: definitely bring your own! Hairdryer was one of those weak ones, fine for me but I know some friends would have preferred to bring their own.

    « Excellent hotel »

    We spent a week here and couldn't fault it. The room was great, the staff friendly and helpful and the huge, varied buffet breakfast was excellent, set you up for the day! There were plenty of restaurants and bars close by and the metro a few minutes walk away. Would definitely return.

    This was a nice hotel with a decent sized room and very nice bathroom. The rates were reasonable for Barcelona, but the hotel did not really offer anything extra, just a nice clean room. Bar and restaurant were marginal and could not compete with other restaurants in this area.

    « Good quiet location »

    Not in the noise but a short walk to the center of it all. We like to stay away from the tourist traps to eat and one of the front desk people told us where he goes with friends and family for real tapas. i wish i remembered his name because he was very helpful (the others at the frontdesk didn't act like they wanted to be there). He booked the tickets to the Sagrada Familia for us. They are needed in advance to not wait in line.

    We stayed at the Best Western Premier Hotel Dante 2 years ago and came back for 1 night before joinning a cruise departing from Barcelona Port. The hotel was renovated and it looks as new. The service and breakfast were superb. We shall certainly stay again at this hotel on our next visit Barcelona. Highly recommended...

    Stayed 3 nights at this wonderful hotel. Lobby was very artistically designed and the location very convenient to major attractions. You can walk to Gaudi's Casa Batllo, Casa Mila and the fabulous Sagrada Familia ( or take a simple bus from Calle Valencia ). The staff will assist you and are very helpful and knowledgeable.A special thank-you to front manager Margarita Ferret. Then, there's the convenient mid-sized supermarket a few doors away for all your convenient groceries, water and snacks.Well-prized and plentiful. Secure parking facilities within the complex helps.

    « Very nice hotel in a good location in Barcelona. »

    I stayed here for two nights.. this is definitely a four star hotel.. rooms are quite nice and feature fridge, room safe, and lots of electrical outlets although they are all of the 2 prong variety. Bathroom was nice and has very big fluffy towels which I liked. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Only criticism I have is a nearby church whose bell goes off at random hours.. I heard it early Sunday evening. I think it stops at 7 pm.. also heard it at 7, 8, and 9 am on Monday morning. It will wake you up! It's also in a quiet neighborhood but within walking distance of the metro and some tourist destinations.. hop on, hop off tourist bus is a few blocks away. Lots of great tapas restaurants nearby One tip: don't buy their breakfast. It costs 16 Euros which is way overpriced. Plenty of places nearby where you can breakfast at a fraction of the price

    « Modern hotel in Barcelona »

    What a pleasure to stay in this modern hotel in Barcelona! The rooms are large and quiet. We were at the back of the hotel, facing the rear of a church. As it was Sunday, the church rang its bell every hour and we worried that this would continue all night. However after 7 o'clock that evening, the bell rang no more! The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a small restaurant where you can have lunch or dinner, but there are lots of restaurants nearby. It is a clean hotel but has a very small lobby, which is a drawback when waiting for the room to be ready after a long flight. No rooms will be ready until after 1:00 p.m. - a real pain!

    « Business hotel »

    Visited this hotel for 4 days when had business in Barcelona. It is located some blocks out from Plaza Cathalynia, 10 min with taxi. The room was clean but quite small. Also the bathroom was small and a bit outdated. It have been more accepted if the price wasn't so high, approx 200€ per night. The staff was very helpful, wifi was free but slow. The street outside is busy so recommend higher floor levels, we had 6th floor and it was better. Breakfast was not included and it is quite expensive, 15€ per person. But if you had 3 or more days it was 11€. The varity was not very much, some hot dishes, 3 of them and cold dishes. They have bakeries next to hotel, would use them if was not that my company paid for it.

    « Great stay in Barcelona »

    From the moment we arrived, tired from our 8 hour flight in a cramped plane, we were made to feel welcome at this hotel. Even though we were checking in early, the hotel had our rooms ready and put both couples on the same floor for convenience. The young woman on the front desk was helpful and efficient, getting us checked in quickly. There were 4 of us traveling together, we got a room on the courtyard and the other couple had a room over looking the main street. We both found the rooms to be very quiet at night. Breakfast was included in the price of the room and the breakfast buffet covered the complete spectrum of items one might want whether having a North American style breakfast or a European style breakfast. The staff in the dining room were very friendly. On the first morning one of our group had a problem with the coffee machine. The attendant asked if she could help and made her a coffee. The dining room staff made sure the buffet was full and the place was clean, quickly clearing tables. They also took time to chat with the guests and provided us with some ideas on things to see and do. The rooms were a good size, clean and the bathroom was stocked with essentials such as soap and shampoo. We had a balcony in our room overlooking the courtyard though we didn't really use it. The hotel is in a great location - easy walking distance to all the major sites and attractions. Every evening when we returned to the hotel the staff on duty greeted us warmly and asked how our day had been. A very nice place to crash for 3 nights and we will definitely use this hotel again if traveling in Barcelona.

    « Ideal for a weekend break »

    Great hotel, clean, spacious rooms, nice view of the residences opposite, great aircon, huge Windows, lovely linen and an excellent shower. Not particularly generous on tea/coffees or bathroom products but I'm sure you could ask for more. Breakfast not included, but we booked for 3 days (so you get a discount on the daily breakfast charge). Great selection, continental and hot food available buffet style. Lovely ladies working in that area, very helpful and smiley. Reception staff were great and very helpful, even lent us an umbrella each during an evening storm! Only criticism was the WiFi in our room (303) was often unavailable or very slow. Would definitely book here for my next trip to Barcelona

    « Magnificent staff and hotel »

    Our stay was for 3 nights. The staff was helpful from the sidewalk curb arriving to the sidewalk curb departing. I cannot say enough about the high quality the staff portrayed, with friendliness and an attitude that said " we want to make your stay the best possible". Margaretta was almost bombarded by us asking questions; she answered every question with a smile and a direct answer making us feel glad we asked. The hotel is fairly well located. I noticed one reviewer said 10 minutes walking to La Rambla but it is actually about double that time. Our room, 702, was on the top floor, a junior suite. The room is huge with a balcony measuring about 20 ft by 9 ft. Amenities included coffee, tea, espresso, glassware, refridgerator and a writing desk. King size bed with 2 lounge chairs, a small table and 2 night standswere the other furnishings. The room had 2 closets, 2 telephones and an ebtry to store luggage. The bathroom was in 2 sections, the first with a sink and Jacuzzi, the second with a very large shower, toilet and bidet. The bath towels were as large most beach towels. I would suggest reserving a junior suite for a stay longer than one night. Our stay was beyond our expectations with the size of the room, the amenities and the highly professional and caring staff. Very hard to beat !!!!

    « Great centrally located hotel »

    We spent two nights at the Best Western Premier Hotel in Barcelona. The room was comfortable and clean. I don't normally have breakfast, but my husband called me down for some as the breakfast was really good, they had a lovely selection of cheeses, ciabatta breads and ham, as well as the usual English breakfast. The hotel is centrally located which was great, with lovely historic buildings on your doorstep.

    « Immaculate, great beds, fabulous staff, good location. »

    The hotel is a great bargain, about half the cost the noisy Ramblas area. It is a bit of a walk to the touristic old city but not bad and taxis are very inexpensive. Best of all is the wonderful staff. Martin had excellent nearby restaurant recommendations. Magaretta saved the day when we were nearly robbed at a nearby bank ATM. Fortunately , our card was eaten by the machine after hours. The next morning the bank would not unlock the ATM machine to return the card...until Margaretta came to the rescue. Rooms on the backside ot the hotel are much quieter than those above the busy street in front of the hotel. Beware:: there is a central stairway between two elevators and a natural light well behind that. Noise travels up these two openings. Avoid a room adjacent to the openings, if possible, i.e.,stay on outer walls. The city is beautiful and as spotless as the hotel. Will stay here when we return!

    « A wonderful surprise »

    I booked this Best Western property for a one night stay before flying out to Ibiza. It was well priced and in a great location in Eixample. The service we received, front the moment we got out of our taxi in front of the hotel to when we left the next day was SECOND TO NONE! During my trip to Spain, I have stayed in 5 different hotels and this one was by far the best we have received as far as friendliness and service. Up to this point, I wondered if all hotel service was mediocre verging on rude. Not this hotel. The concierge took us to the room and explained the amenities of the room in detail, which was a lovely surprise. The sleeping part of the room was comfortable (a little dated) but it was very clean. The bathroom, however was updated and fabulous! We opted for their breakfast special (11.5 Euros) which in my opinion was the best deal I had my entire trip! It was a varied buffet and of high quality food and service. If you are looking for a moderately priced hotel with EXCELLENT services, you can't go wrong here!

    « a comfortable night in barcelona »

    I had extended my stay by one night and decided to book it with Best Western as they were also offering an excellent deal. I wasn't sure what to expect and was happily surprised. The hotel is modern and light nicely laid out. The single room, which in comparative hotels, wouldn't have any space for rooming, here the room was very comfortable, stylish, clean with all the amenities to make one's stay comfortable. I had asked for a quiet room and got it. The staff is professional and informative. The only issue is the location that is a bit of a walk from the centre of activities but close enough to some of the Gaudi sites and shops. metro station and buses are a block or two away (walking distance) and some nice cafes and restaurants next door. I was happy to spend my last night in beautiful Barcelona in this comfortable hotel.

    « Value for the money »

    Full disclosure to the readers of this review: my rating for this property is against others in its class. I think you deserve to know that, because if you are looking for the Mandarin Oriental in the heart of the city, this hotel may not be for you. However, if you are looking to stay in reasonable proximity to the Barri Gotica, or La Rambla, this is probably the best intersection of price, location, and comfort you will find. The rooms are well equipped, clean, and reasonably modern. We are a family of 4 - two adults and two adult sized kids. We booked adjoining rooms, which was wonderful because we then had two shared baths. Plenty of space, mini bar, coffee/tea complementary in room, and nice bath accessories. Staff were very helpful and pleasant, suggesting tours and restaurants. We found the neighborhood quiet, with a few restaurants sprinkled about. It was an easy 10 min walk to shops and other sights.

    Picked this hotel based on review and we were happy with it. Rooms were nice, clean, comfortable bed & pillow. Bathroom had all the necessary amenities and clean. We requested for adjacent rooms and they catered the request accordingly. Breakfast menu was good. Room & restaurant service was commendable as well. The hotel is well situated. The metro is nearby and couple of bus stations are just around the corner. There are couple of restaurants of different cuisine around the hotel. La Rambla is 12-15 mins walk from the hotel. All the front desk staffs were very much cooperative throughout our stay.

    « Too much dust! »

    The staff did a great job to have a room ready before the check-in time. The problem was that the room has an old carpet and curtains full of dust. We got to the room and noticed dark brown stains in the carpet and when we open the curtains, you could see all the dust falling around. My son got sick with sore throat and allergies. I have to say that I did not mention anything to the staff there as we were out of the hotel all day. The room was 403.

    « Regular hotel »

    I stayed for 5 days in this hotel. The thing I liked the most was the staff from front desk. They were very kind and deferent, willing to help. I stayed in bedroom 711 (top floor). The bedroom size was really good although it is with carpet which I personally don't like. The bed was two single beds put together which is not very comfortable once in the end, if you are alone, you don't sleep in between. The a/c worked well but it was the old type. The bathroom was clean but it has this blower/fan that is turned on all the time with the light and it was extremely annoying, specially during the bath, when you want to relax. The breakfast was ok with orange juice, scrambled eggs, a few types of bread and some cheeses, etc. The location is not as close to Las Ramblas as I thought it could be. It's walking distance but not that close. In Calle de Mallorca there are lots of restaurants and bars, it's very vivid and full of people coming and going. Another complaint is about the time the clean ladies started to clean the bedrooms, around 7-7:30am, disturbing the other guests with the vacuum cleaner (carpets! ??). From the hotel to Plaza Catalunya where you can take the bus to the airport I payed 6€. It's good value for money but I don't consider it a 4-star-hotel. Maybe a 3.

    « Med Cruise »

    We stayed at the Best Western Donte for 2 nights to explore Barcelona before beginning our Med cruise. Located on Mallorca St in the busy central city area near Gracia, its not a far walk to nearby attractions like the Placa de Catalunya, Las Ramblas, and even Sagrada Familia. The hotel has a modern facade set amongst more traditional style buildings all joined together with chamfered corners to form the large blocks that make up the city. We arrived exhausted from an overnight flight to Madrid then by train to Stants station so were relived to be rapidly checked in and shown to our small well appointed double room with all the usual amenities for a hotel in this price range. Soft beds and quality linens provided a comfortable nights sleep and the hot water on demand was great in the morning shower. Thick towels and bathrobes were also nice. They have breakfast on the 2nd floor which was nice but expensive. There's a view of the street out front where you can watch the morning commute that i call "the scooter races" while sipping your tea I can't say enough about how friendly and helpful the staff is at the Donte. Of special help at the front desk was Margarita who called on our behalf to the airlines to facilitate the retrieval of our lost bags. While our Spanish is rudimentary, our Catalan is non existent. Margarita called them for 2 days before our luggage magically appeared just before check out. Thanks to you we can begin our cruise vacation!

    We were very happy with this hotel. The location is good, about 20min walk to Ramblas, 30min walk to Sagrada Familia, and 10min walk to Casa Batllo Nice staff, nice breakfast, good size room, and it was surprisingly quiet because our room was to the street which got quite busy during the day

    Stayed in this hotel 3 nights prior to our Med cruise in May 2016. Good location, walking distance to La Rambla and other tourist attractions. A supermarket located in the same block, so we could get fresh fruits and bottled water, etc. Many restaurants around to choice from. Room is clean and tidy, bed and pillow are comfy. Would definitely stay in this hotel again if we come back to Barcelona next time.

    This is one of the nicer European hotels in which we have stayed. The front desk manager and assistant could not have been more helpful. The bartenders were excellent. The rooms were comfortable, spotless, and secure. Ours had a balcony on a courtyard. There were two elevators. The breakfast was exceptional and the staff efficient and pleasant. There was a good safe and a good refrigerator in the room. The wifi was above average. The location is convenient to the transit system, tourist buses, and Las Ramblas. Shopping is close by. Numerous restaurants were close by. The air conditioning should be good year-round. The lobby was a good place to connect with other members of our party. All Best Western hotels could learn from this one.

    Stayed at this hotel for 10 nights. Staff was attentive and helpful. Breakfast buffet was satisfactory. Location is excellent. Many good restaurants within 3 blocks of hotel. Tried a different one each night. Because dinner hour is so late in Spain did not want to go too far from the hotel for dinner. Room was adequate, but need more lighting in the room and the walls are too thin (can hear neighbors). Because of location and service would stay at hotel again.

    « Very good and friendly. Will stay again. »

    We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our cruise. We decided on this hotel based on the good reviews and known standards of the Best Western and it was a right decision. This hotel is well designed with wood paneling everywhere including our room. The view from our window (room 312) was facing a church with a bell tower, apartments and rooftops, some with container gardens, very quiet. The bathroom was very nice and big. The bed was firm but comfortable. We slept very well there. In-room safe was available. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was OK with all the basics one needs. I ate a quinoa-zucchini soup in their restaurant one night for a late night dinner and it was very good and so was their wine. The service was excellent. WiFi was great and we also used a computer in the lobby with printer - very helpful. It was a short walk to the nearest metro station, a good local cafe for coffee, pastries and small sandwiches literally right next door. Supermarket nearby and anything else you need is on the way to the metro. All in all, this was an excellent place to stay at reasonable price, clean, with very friendly service and everything available for the travelers needs.

    « Horrible experience »

    Never wrote a bad review , so here is the first ! If you are booking a single occupancy , you are in for a big surprise .... Apperntly single occupancy (few dollars cheaper than a double room ) means a room with a small window facing a wall (about 4 meters away) , so good luck with the view , ventilation , recognizing the living day lights! Walls of the room quiet thin so it can get noisy , AC is not that great, water coming from shower very hot and it might require a genius to figure out how to make it a bit cooler! . tried to talk some sense to reception people and it seems it is all my fault to book single occupancy , they insist i should have specified prior to coming that i want a room where i can see the sun ?? I think I'll lose my apitite for a while trying unfamiliar hotels .

    « Very good place to stay in Barcelona »

    I stayed here for four nights for a city break in Barcelona. I tend to use the Best Western chain as they usually consistent, clean and reliable and this one met these expectations. It's location in the Eixample district is a good base to see the sights. The area is divided into blocks and there are two metro stations which are only a couple of blocks away so a short walk. It is located on Carrer de Mallorca so if you turn left out of the hotel entrance and walk in a straight line you will cross the Rambla de Catalunya in about 10 minutes and reach the Sagrada Família in about 25 mins. Other sights such as the main Ramblas and the Barri Gothic could also be walked to, but you may find the Metro is quicker (but not always, just easier if you don't want to walk). The Reception staff were very helpful. You can arrange a late checkout for 2pm. They did forget I'd done this, but were okay when I reminded them. They will also look after your bag after you have checked out if you have a late flight. The room was modern, spacious and clean. It had plenty of storage space and the Wi-Fi was easy to use and fast. There was a big safe in the wardrobe. There was a mini bar. The price list was on a card on a shelf inside it which took a bit of finding. Despite what the room book says, water isn't free, but €2.50 a bottle. You can drink the tap water, but bottled water in the supermarket which was next door was really cheap so buy it in there. The walls of the room are quite thin. A lady was having a loud phone conversation at 1:30am and I could hear every word. I had to bang on the wall to get her to be quiet. Also ask for a room at the back. I had one overlooking the street and whilst the traffic is not heavy, it can get noisy late at night with people shouting, singing and music playing. There were also some roadworks nearby which started really early. In the bathroom the shower screen was not really adequate to stop the floor getting wet, a common problem in hotels. I'm very tall and there was a rail between the screen and the wall which I kept catching my head on. Breakfast was €11.50 per day as I got a four day deal on it. It was adequate, but the selection was different each day and some of the warm foods were cold. I did it for convenience, but if I went again I'd get it at one of the cafes nearby. There were some nice ones including one in the indoor market two blocks down. These are only minor niggles thought. It was a good place to stay and if I go back to Barcelona, I would stay there again.

    The room was very small. There was very little air, and when I asked for the AC, I was told that the ACs are turned on only in April! Later on, a staff member did come by and turn the air on, but after I had gone to the desk. Also, the walls are really thin. I could hear every movement on the top floor, till 1:30 in the morning! One of the staff members, Alexander, was helpful, but the others were not.

    « Comfortable and priced right for Barcelona »

    Nice hotel . Spacious with nice size bathroom. A good 10 minute walk to the metro where you can access absolutely everything in the city. We bought a three day pass. Didn't do the buffet breakfast. It was 15 euros each if you only wanted part of your stay or 11.50 euros each per day for your whole stay. Had a look at it, but my wife not being much of a breakfast person didn't think it was for us. It did look ok. Staff was really good and helpful. Close to a good size grocery store that also sold very reasonably priced wine and beer.

    We stayed in March, 2 rooms for a family of 5. We arrived just off the cruiseship hoping to store our luggage until our rooms were ready in the afternoon. Unfortunately, the taxi driver accidentally crushed my daughter's finger as we were getting out of the cab. The staff at the hotel were incredibly helpful and set us up in the lovely snack bar area, gave my daughter ice for her hand and our sons snacks. We stayed there for only an hour and then they got us into one of our rooms early. Our side by side rooms were on the 6th floor and happy that they had elevators. Rooms were very nice, beds comfy, we found this Best Western to be of higher quality than those back in North America. When we booked, there was a room sale on, but that even made us more happy with our choice..

    We travelled with two teenage children and had a family room which was 2 interconnecting rooms. The rooms have just been refurbished and were very nice. Beds were comfortable.

Our room was quiet with just some background road noise but nothing from inside the hotel despite being by the stairs. We didn't eat there instead preferring to find one of the numerous cafes and coffee shops nearby. Best thing about the hotel was the reception staff who were incredibly helpful.

    Hotel Dante is extremely well situated. I found I could walk to all of the sites I wanted to see. It is in the Eixample neighborhood, which is its own attraction. I had a single room which was comfortable. A special feature is the anteroom with the closet, meaning that there were two locked doors to access my room, adding extra security. Restaurants in the area were outstanding, not the tourist variety I saw many places in Barcelona. All staff was pleasant and accommodating. They arranged my departure so that I arrived at the airport well ahead of time. The breakfast is expensive, but there is a coffee shop next door. I highly recommend Hotel Dante.

    We stayed at the Hotel Dante for 3 nights in late February/early March. The hotel is well situated and is about 5 minutes walk from the Hospital Clínic Metro station giving fast access to most of the popular tourist areas of the city. It took about 45 minutes to get to the hotel from the airport by train/metro. The hotel was very good with the best features being the delicious breakfast (self service with a very large choice including both hot and cold dishes) and the large, clean and quiet bedroom. The staff at the hotel spoke good English and were all friendly and helpful. Wifi was free throughout the hotel. There were plenty of restaurants, bars and shops in the vicinity of the hotel.

    One of the best hotels I've ever stayed in for service, particularly given the fact that I was visiting with a loud group of friends. The staff here were extremely helpful and spoke better English than some of my travelling party. The rooms were very clean, and serviced every day. The reception staff could not have done too more for you. This hotel definitely enhanced our stay in Barcelona and I would consider staying here again if they let me! I think the very least this hotel deserves is good review and a big thank you for your hospitality.

    The hotel was open and operating even though the entrance is under renovation, which did have significant effect to the first impression. The room was very spacious and very clean. For breakfast we were offered a good selection of meals and drinks and everything was fresh and tasty. Staff was very helpful and welcoming. The best thing about this hotel is the location, since you are just a couple of minutes away from La Rambla. Regretfully, what spoiled the good impressions is the sound insulation in the rooms. You can hear people walking and using bathrooms next door and above. For light sleepers this might be a serious problem. All in all, a decent hotel with good location.

    « Just Ok »

    Booked under a special offer 70 per night for a single room. You couldn't believe but it was a single room, not a double for single use like in 4-5 stars hotels... But it is quite comfy (no window outside, just to another corridor block). Obviously, there is no point for 4 stars: dated property, undergoing renovation, old rooms, not-so-friendly staff... But the location is nice, offer was good. Don't pay 15 for breakfast, you can eat perfect things for 5-7 euros nearby with excellent coffee. One more, this is not Best Western Premier or Best Western - this is some of the old hotel property now trying to run under the brand. But Barcelona is so beautiful!

    We stayed here for three nights recently. The hotel looked a bit messy as the lobby and bar areas are undergoing refurbishment which we were unaware of, having found the temporary reception we checked in and went up to our 7th floor suite, this was a nice set of rooms with a nice terrace and all necessary amenities. The hotel is reasonably close to the centre (Ramblas, Passeig de Gracia etc.) we walked to the Sagrada and Picasso Museum on different days, both about 1.5 miles away.

    The hotel is so different from the pictures on the booking site and its so downrun hotel. Firstly there is a renovation going on on the ground floor and reaching the reception is so hard.

    Is really a good location hotel and about 5 blocks from Passeig la Graçia. If You drive in and going to park with them is going to cost You about 20-25€ per night and if You planning to eat breakfast with them which I dont recommend so You can taste the food of Barcelona you going to end up paying about 15€ per person per day unless you doing more than 4 days eating I believed is 11€ instead which is kind of expensive when is a sandwish-cafeteria store right next to which is awesome. Rooms are very nice and comfy and upgraded. We only spent a night at this hotel. I am a member of Best Western chain and I turned my member number in and I didnt even get the night credited into my account. I will recommend for the location and rooms.

    Room was lovely and very clean.Breakfast was very good with a lot to choose from. The hotel is about 15 min walk to La Ramblas. I would definitely stay here again. We did the hop on hop off buses with a 2 day pass which is an excellent way to see the city and if you start this on your first day you can visualise the city and get your bearings easier. You can use the bus to get to Montjuic (then a 15min walk to the top) the views are amazing, definitely a must do. Parc Guell is an amazing place to visit and it's free to walk around and then there is a part of it you have to pay, which is only €7. You must see Sagrada Familia and wandering around the Gothic Quarter is definite must. La ramblas is a lovely place and just wandering along in the sun down to the port was brilliant. There is also a cable car from the port to Montjuic but it's very high and not for the faint hearted.

    I have stayed here many times in the past, and have always had an excellent experience. The hotel is being renovated, but it did not affect the stay at all. The reception has moved to the breakfast area, and this is the only disturbance. My room on the 5th floor was pristine - absolutely spotlessly clean with comfortable bed and furnishings. The bathroom was spacious with everything you need. Breakfast is plentiful and very high quality, with a full range of items from yogurt, cheese, fruit, cereals, bacon, eggs, beans, cakes and pastries, toast etc, and a choice of coffee, tea and hot chocolate. As it is right in the centre, it is near everything, and there are some wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

The rooms are spacious for city hotels, were spotless and in good order. The only channel in English on tv is world news The bathrooms were very clean free from mould with baths and showers. The buffet breakfast provides a very wide range of food. Bacon sausage scrambled egg and sometimes baked beans or cooked potatoes with veg or mushrooms. Cereals yoghurt fresh fruits meats cheeses breads pastries nespresso machine fruit juice etc.One morning there was smoked salmon. Staff were always on hand to refresh and replenish.

    We recently stayed at this hotel and believe it to be a really great hotel. The staff are awesome and really understand what it is to provide superior customer service. Initially we were in an internal facing room which was one of the best room designs I have ever come across and the bathroom extremely well designed with a walk in shower and double hand basins. We moved to an external facing room as we wanted to hear and experience the bustle of Barcelona (with external opening windows). The room design was a little different, but still excellent, and the bathroom had a shower over bath and a single hand basin. Great street views though! Thank you Best Western Premier Hotel Dante for making my first trip to Barcelona a memorable one, and got providing superior customer service.

The hotel is new and well appointed; my room was spacious for a single and very comfortable.

    My husband & I were staying at Dante for 3 nights (before taking a cruise) & really enjoyed our stay. The location is superb! You are not too close to the touristy areas yet it is close enough to take a nice 15-20 min walk (or longer if you wish!) Everything you need is close by... stores, tapas bars, pharmacies, coffee shops, wine shops etc. I believe public transportation is close by as well but we did not use it because we really enjoy walking & got very lucky with the weather. Check in with check out were nice & easy. We got help with our luggage. Front desk staff was nice & helpful. We used breakfast buffet only one morning but it was really tasty & plentiful. The other 2 mornings we went out to eat. (there are so many choices around!) Our room was on a third floor & had everything we needed & more! Aside from the bedroom there was a separate room with a desk, couch & a wardrobe area. Everything in the room was well appointed & nicely decorated. Simple yet tasteful. I do have to give you a warning though.... Please be very careful while in the bath tub & when getting out of the bath tub. It is VERY slippery inside & odd height when getting out which makes it very easy to trip. I fell pretty bad while getting out of it. Luckily ended up with only few bruises but I could have easily broken a body part as I was landing on the floor. My husband told me I was just clumsy, yet almost fell on his face as well when taking a shower. (I was kind of happy about it :) Overall we loved our stay & will most definitely stay there again. Highly recommended!

    « Central for everything »

    This is a well appointed hotel near the centre of the city. Everything you want to see is within walking distance. The hotel had safe parking (pre-booking is necessary). There is free WiFi throughout. A very good breakfast is available at extra cost, but make sure you pre-book when you check in as there is a discount available of early 30%! Reception is a little slow so I'd advise checking out at an "off-peak" time if possible.

    « Comfortable hotel good location »

    Our party of 4 were greeted with a warm welcome by staff and quickly registered and shown to our rooms. The rooms were spacious, clean and the beds were comfortable. A good location with easy access to all main attractions. We would recommend this hotel as value for money !

    « VERY TIRED NEEDS UPDATING FOR A 4 STAR »

    stayed 3 nights. located 20 minute walk from La Ramblas. room desperately needs updating. we had a room overlooking the main street opposite building works which was noisy if u left the window open, which we did!!!! was not exceptionally clean but passable. we decided to eat breakfast on our last morning, Total rip off don't bother poor choice and coffee out of a vending machine !!!! our stay did not include breakfast thank god as we ate in local cafes. On hindsight we should have not paid to eat here,. would we stay here again probably not as we found other hotels nearer in Barcelona that were of a higher standard and offered far more in terms of facilities etc. I really do feel that Best Western should update this very tired hotel as there is so much more competition out there.

    « Comfort and care »

    We stayed 4 nights in Hotel Dante in late October, revisiting Barcelona after an absence of 22 years. The room was comfortable, large enough by city standards and well organised. It looked over the main road - fine for older folk who can take out their hearing aids (OK too much information...) but traffic noise may keep others awake and a room at the back would be better. Breakfast was good and available at times to suit both business people and tourists. Substantial snacks/meals can be found in the bar area. The greatest asset, though, is the staff - enormously helpful and engaging. We were helped with bookings for the Sagrada Familia and given very good advice on other sites and how to get there and on life in general in Barcelona. Las Ramblas is an easy walk - take your walking shoes and go on foot. Taxis are not expensive when you flake. The hotel has a computer available for residents - you can book ahead for the next day's visits. If you can - and are interested - go to Camp Nou for a Barca game - a very easy metro journey from the hotel and the most wonderful atmosphere ( they won, Suarez scored a hat trick and didn't bite anyone). We'll be back and will definitely look to stay at the Dante again.

    « Good for travelling »

    The hotel is very clean, comfortable. It is situated not far from the centre of Barcelona. You can get to Catalunya place just in 15 minutes by foot, or take bus near the hotel (5 m inutes), or get a taxi for 6 euro. Very helpful reception staff, speaking English. Besides in the lobby-bar you can have your lunch and even late meal. Very good breakfast buffet. The price and quality is good. WiFi everywhere, no problem.

    « Good hotel -- 1KM from tourist center »

    Hotel staff was great and neighborhood was safe with quality restaurants. My only complaint was distance to tourist areas such as los Rambles. I stopped entertainment early to walk the10+ blocks back to hotel.

    « Reknown Best Western Quality »

    The most helpful people at the reception, nice rooms and of course everything clean. I had an incident with a blocked sink and night and I got help immediatly. This was very great. Only internet WiFi was very poor. But this was not the most important thin on this trip :-)

    « Highly Recommend! »

    The hotel was clean with an excellent location for traveling about Barcelona on foot or by taxi or bus. All staff (reception, housekeeping, concierge) were very courteous, friendly, customer-service oriented. When we travel to Barcelona in again, we'll stay here. I highly recommend it to all!

    « Good business hotel »

    Room and bathroom are clean and comfortable. Mini bar is filled, desk and oth amenties. Good continental breakfast. Service of front desk staff is good. One thing that annoyed me a bit, the airco is a bit loud.

    « Not that great »

    The location is perfect 7 min from rambla catlonia, and really in the center. The hotel was good, but- blanket horrible, pillows horrible, there was a renovation of a room right next to our room. All day long there was noise. Service not to kind. Even if barcelona is a placenust to sleep in the room, and not be here all day long, its still need to be a good hotel. Not recommended in 100%. Only for the location.

    « Pretty good all round »

    Check-in wasn't great ? it appears our booking, which was done direct with the hotel, hadn't come through properly. Once that was sorted, it turned out to be a pretty good experience; we liked the room, the breakfast choices were good if not especially wide, the reception desk mostly helpful. The free Wifi seemed reasonably secure but our signal on L3 fluctuated which made for intermittent net connectivity issues (it's possible our laptop is part of the problem ? it doesn't like weak signals.) The location ? in Barcelona's Eixample district ? is not that close to the main harbour-side tourist attractions and Las Ramblas, but it's not too badly situated. . There's a Santander bank around the corner, and two blocks east is the excellent La Palmera restaurant. The Sagrada Familia is on the same street albeit quite a few blocks away. There are a couple of Metro stations not too far away from the hotel, whilst you have to walk about 5 blocks east get to a Hop-on Hop-off bus pickup (next to another Gaudi building).

    « Reliable and Safe »

    We stayed four nights to chill out after 6 weeks in Spain. We chose here as Best Western is a reliable hotel. You know what you are getting, good sized room, English speaking and in a safe area. The hotel delivered in these areas. The area Around the hotel has good restaurants and while it is not really close to anywhere it is not far to walk as most sights are within a kilometre. Restaurant on site is just a snack bar otherwise no complaints with the hotel.

    « Good hotel!!!! »

    I enjoyed my stay at this hotel, very nice for a Best Western. Great location, clean large rooms and friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel for a quick visit or a business trip. The hotel lobby is a bit dated but overall a very nice hotel. Good value!

    « Great for precruise or anytime »

    From check in to checkout the staff was very helpful. Able to leave luggage after checkout. Also use of a safe. The room had everything you needed. The bathroom was very modern. No ice machine but always helpful when I asked. Supermarket right next door. Very convenient. It was a 20 minute walk to tourist area. Many restaurants nearby.

    « Disappointing Room »

    My wife and I booked this hotel for one night. The hotel was clean and the staff were very helpful. BUT the room was tiny! Its a long time since I had a bed in a room that you couldn't get in to both sides. The room was so small that the bed had to e pushed against the wall. There was also a lack of Towels in the bathroom. In saying that, the Shower was Brilliant. Breakfast was good and set us up for the journey home. I am sorry to say that I wouldn't stay here again. There is no way I can see how it has a 4 star rating.

    I would definitely recommend this hotel to my friends and family or for any one visiting Barcelona. We were well received and the staff spoke very well in English. The hotel is very clean and well located within walking distance to many restaurants and pubs. The hotel recommended that we use the Hop & Go tourist bus service. We were able to visit all the attractions without having to find our own way through out the city.

    « Great location »

    Of all the hotels stayed at in the 2 weeks spent in Spain, I found the Best Western had the largest rooms, much better lighting and robes! The location was very good, easy to walk to shops, restaurants and Gaudi's Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. I booked the hotel too late so the value was a bit higher than what I hoped for. Next time, I will book hotels way in advance. All in all, very nice, great service and quiet being a a large city. Definitely would stay here again.

    « Good location... »

    Within walking distance to main artery streets for restaurants and hop-on-hop off bus stops (5 blocks). Room on 4th floor, with view above street, very clean room, nice linens, and comfortable beds. Locked room to store your luggage. Did not try the restaurant area. Guest computer/printer for printing boarding passes. Front desk vey helpful with obtaining tickets for bus and sights. A grocery store on same side of street, handy for drinks/snacks.

    « What one expects of a four star hotel. »

    1. Very friendly and professional staff. 2. Generously sized bedrooms with en suite facilities. 3. Around 60 - 70 bedrooms which made it more personalised and the staff went out of their way to remember you. Close to the Ramblas and "the action" without being immersed in it. It is no more than a short walk away. We have visited Barcelona twice this year and on both occasions have chosen this hotel. We intend to return to the Hotel Dante again on its merits.

    « Excellent »
