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

"Good base in Barcelona"
Stayed here recently on a business trip. Normally use different properties down the road but cost prohibited me. Rooms very good, nicely decorated and quiet with free water and wi-fi. Breakfast buffet is good and extensive. Nice little bar area serving a variety of drinks and snacks. Restaurant is available but did not use. Seems to be a favourite for tour groups due to its size, but not an issue as far as I am concerned.
"Good from the begining"
The hotel is located in a great place for all the public transport with easy access to all the major tourist spots. if you like walking iy can be a little further and longer to some of them. breakfast is fine with lots of hot and cold options that set you up for the day. The reception staff are open and friendly with a good knowledge of where to go and what to see. Within 100 meters there is the Arena shopping center with plenty of top class shops at good prices there are lots of food places to eat in the mall and in the surrounding area. We had a room on the 7 th floor facing the main avenue if you open the windows for air it is very noisy but after a long day out you still sleep well unless you are a very light sleeper. The room itself is more than big enough for 2 persons with a nicely equipped bathroom my only negative comment is that we were in a double with 2 beds which for some unknown reason were on wheels and kept moving not the most ideal set up. apart from this i would most certainly return to the hotel in the future.
Stayed at this hotel as I was attending a convention at Fira Barcelona. This hotel is very conveniently located adjacent to Placa Espana, which puts it on the closest aerobus stop to the airport (5.9 Eu), and 100 m from the L1/L3 metro stops. Clean rooms, free water at check in ( would have been nice if they refilled the refrigerator after check in) , excellent breakfast buffet from 7a-11a) Area is safe, residential. Great hotel desk service, free wi (slow downloads), by work out room.
We stayed here for the marathon and the hotel is a 2 min walk from the expo and start/finish. The staff were great from check in to check out. The breakfast buffet was good value and there should be something for everyone. We had the special marathon buffet the evening before. The food was nice although it was warm rather than hot. We also ate in the hotel bar one night which was good value. The drinks in the bar were reasonably priced. 3 euros for a glass that would cost double that back home. Rooms were modern and comfortable. No there were no tea/coffee making facilities but there are loads of cafes and bars nearby. The las arenas shopping centre nearby has a selection of cafes in the basement and restaurants on the 2nd floor. If you get the aerobus from the airport it's a 2 min walk from the stop to the hotel and was only about 10 euros pp for a return. This hotel is in the montijuc area and you can walk/use the escalators up to the Olympic park. There is a hop on/off bus 5 mins walk away. We didn't use the metro or local buses but there are plenty of stops nearby to get you where you want to be. Alternatively this is about a 30min walk from la rambla area. Would highly recommend this hotel for its value and location
"Excellent Hotel with amazing staff and very central location"
This hotell is very central, and the busses from the airport stops just outside. Also there is a metro station, mall, resturants and supermarkets just 2-5mins walking from the hotel! Its the perfect hotel to live in if you are on a vacation on a budget but still wants a little luxury and great value for your money! My girlfriend and I loved the hotelrooms, the service, FOOD and the staff! :) We will come back on our next vacation to Barcelona. Highly recommended!
