Recently built, Ayre Hotel Gran Vía enjoys a privileged location in Plaza de España, next to Montjuic Castle, one of the most popular tourist spots in Barcelona. The hotel is also conveniently located close to the business centre of Barcelona, the "Zona Franca", and only 15 minutes from Barcelona airport.
Hotel situato in ottima posizione, con personale gentilissimo, camera pulita e isolamento acustico ottimo (nonostante fossimo al primo piano e fronte strada)Comment of B. ANTONELLA , Italy the 2013-11-30
Ritornerei di nuovo anche con amici.Comment of B. Gianni , Italy the 2013-10-30
Stayed here for 4 nights. Well positioned for public transport with buses and trains a couple of minutes walk away and if you've got your walking shoes on La Rambla is about 3/4 of an hour away. The National Museum and the Olympic Stadium are just up the road, both are well worth a visit. Barcelona is a great place to visit. Beautiful buildings and beautiful food. The tapas bars are to die for !
"COULDN'T FAULT IT!"
For me to not be able to find a fault with a hotel is unheard of! The booking was easy and my special requests were taken into account. The desk staff (Rafael) and (Paula) greeted us with the typical Spanish friendliness. The check in procedure was quick and efficient. They offered me a room that took into account my requests. The room was perfect. Quiet, clean, smart, chic, modern, comfortable, large. The beds comfortable, white crisp linen, The bathroom was beautiful, very tranquil, modern with excellent lighting and facilities. The complimentary bath products were high quality. I'm used to Hilton hotels so I was very pleasantly surprised when the Ayre Hotel Gran Via exceeded my expectations. Everything worked, lights, TV, windows, drapes - air conditioning. Usually there is something missing but not here. A safe in the closet, lots of drawers and closet space and so much room to move around. We only stayed for one night but throughout the hotel we felt a warm, comfortable air of serenity and tranquility even though the hotel was right next to Plaza Espana - absolutely perfectly located for the lovely Arenas shopping mall, the Plaza Espana Metro (2 mins away on the L1 line) 10 minute walk to Palau Jordi and Montjuice and the magic fountain. Finally, I could not fault the hotel, its amenities, its location, restaurant, staff and service. I will be staying here every trip into the City. Oh and value was about right... 4 star hotel 4 star price 4 star service.
"Rooms on the main street are VERY noisy"
I imagine I got one of the worst rooms because I had booked through booking.com. The bed was cutting off access to the desk area, so in essence you would never use it. The floor said it was non-smoking but the bathroom reeked of smoke. I did not have a chance to check out the dining options but I would not stay here again. If you have no other options request a room off the main street otherwise you will not be able to sleep at night.
"Small quaint place."
We were in an inside room meaning the view was of other rooms around the building. Not so great but no traffic noise. 8th floor. Have to get used to the room key in slot to keep power on. We found it convenient to leave one key in to keep A/C on. The hotel was clean. The food was very different from USA food. Scrambled rggs very moist and almost runny otherwise European foods were tasty as I tried most. Fruit, cheeses and meats, coffee, orange, pineapple, and mango juice. A large selection to satisfy most travelers. Breakfast was included in price of room. Only a few channels and mostly news in English.
"Soothing trip with team mates"
We had four nights visits to this hotel in central zone at plaza espanya square. Hotel services were fantastic for a large group of 45 , rooms are decent sized and well maintained, restaurant offered good cuisines and versatile breakfast menu. Its close to big shopping square, a convention centre, and we enjoyed suggestion from them to attend oktoberfest at barcelona,
