Located in the heart of Barcelona's modernist Eixample district, Ayre Hotel Rosellón offers easy access to the city's main tourist sights, such as Sagrada Familia, the Diagonal Avenue, The neogothic palace of Can Terrades, and numerous shopping centers.
"Spectacular view of Sagrada Familia!"
We stayed at Ayre Rosellon Barcelona one night before a cruise. Very modern and updated hotel right in the middle of town, overlooking Sagrada Familia. We walked everywhere. Be aware, it is not close to Las Ramblas, but it is a short taxi ride. The staff was the best! My phone was overheating and we didn't have another phone in order to keep in touch with our family. They directed us to a mobile shop right down the street. We had an early tour the next morning and tried the breakfast. THey were just putting it out so we didn't get to sample everything. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Barcelona just may be my favorite new city. We will be back!
"Stunning views but generally dissapointed"
We stayed here for a short break and the views of the Sagrada Familia from both the room and the roof were stunning. The room itself was small and quite basic, the reception staff were fine but we had the hotel breakfast and the waiting staff were much less attentive, coffee regularly ran out as did the bread, breakfast is freshly cooked but we had to wait an age and, when the poached eggs came they were undercooked-wasn't worth waiting for replacements as we had sights to see I will definitely visit Barcelona again (planning for trip in march) but not here, there are better priced hotels around and I would suggest that people walk round to the Starbucks at the back of the sagrada familia for coffee and a breakfast roll rather than pay for the hotel breakfast
"Good - in between average and very good"
I picked this place because of the terrace with a close view of La Sagrada Familia. I had a morning arrival from the States which would have been a problem with the apartment I rented for my stay, so I decided the Rosellon was the best choice for one night. GOOD- the roof top terrace was small but lovely. Close, good views of the top 2/3rds of La Sagrada. I was disappointed that La Sagrada was not lit up well on the night I was there. The staff was fairly attentive and friendly. There was a nice little park at the back of the hotel with a children's play area and benches. There was a festival going on while I was there and there was a bar down the street playing live music and looked very full from 11 AM (maybe earlier- that is when I arrived) to about 5 :00 or 6 (17:00). Then it closed and was not open at night. I thought that was a little strange but probably holiday related. Just when I was ready for a drink (11 AM is a little early for me) they were closed. BAD- My room was tiny. I had originally booked the room for 2 and had requested a terrace room. My friend had to cancel and I didn't not tell them it would now be one person. In my experience solo travelers tend to get smaller rooms, so I always say 2 people. It turned out there are only 2 rooms with terraces and they had not held one for me. UGLY- Well it would have turned me ugly if I was traveling in the heat of the summer instead of September. The AC was not very cool at all. The control was conveniently located and it would let me turn the temperature down and then about 15 seconds later it would go back to the original setting. I tried several times and it always reverted to the higher setting. I opened the window and it wasn't too uncomfortably warm. Summary- the only reason to stay here is the location near the church. There are a lot of apartments for rent in Barcelona and many of them do not have a minimum stay requirement.
We visited with my wife this hotel last September in a business trip. The room was clean but relatively small. There was no view to Sagrada Famiglia as the rooms with view have an extra charge. Breakfast was very satisfying. Small but cosy lobby and very friendly staff. On the roof there is a bar with excellent view to Sagrada Famiglia and I recommend a drink in the evening. No pool which was a problem as it was really hot that period.
"Would go back in a heart beat!"
We returned yesterday from a long weekend at Ayre Hotel. We travel extensively and in our opinion this is one of the best hotels in Spain. The staff were friendly, efficient and always courteous and helpful. We did pay the extra and book a room on the top floor floor with the amazing view of the Sagrada Familia. Yes we know the Basilica is under construction but to see a piece of history being built is something we will never forget. We normally stay off Ramblas but its so easy and quick to get around on the Metro that being in this part of the city was perfect for us. The roof top Terrace is gorgeous and with Freizenet just 12Eur a bottle who can ask for more!
