I arrived at this hotel after a long 10 hour drive with two small children. We were tired and in need of rest. Upon check in, I requested an extra roll away bed, expecting an up charge, as is normal practice at hotels when you arrive with small children. The front desk attendant rejected my request and informed us that it was impossible. Having no option unless we wanted our 3 year old to sleep on the floor, we checked out and went to another hotel. I asked for a refund at check out and this was also rejected. No child should ever be refused a place to sleep, especially at a hotel. The staff at this hotel do not know the meaning of hospitality. I'd expect this from a cheap motel, but not a Marriott brand.
There are various reasons this hotel is on my favorite lists. Location is one of them. It is close to everywhere I want to be. It is also in an urban neighborhood where everything is simply a stroll away. The people are the too reason. It is nice to arrive and truly feel welcome. Having breakfast and people addressing you asking if there is anything they can get for you and wishing you a nice day. Equally satisfying is returning from a day's work and people, again addressing you by name, and asking how your day was. The hotel is undergoing some remodel and I believe it will continue to be my go to hotel in Barcelona.
"Great friendly service."
I visited Irla, a combined business and leisure. It was a very convinient visit all in all. Service, room, friendly attitude. Not exatly the central locqtion but a clean and nice area with reasonable services and good connentions.
"Decent business hotel from Marriott"
Comfortable, clean, central, handy for trains and both central Barcelona and further afield. No member benefits, but it's cheap enough (and on expenses, so within budget!). Basic continental breakfast, expresso machine coffee (arrgggh! how hard can it be to get decent coffee in Spain!!!) Staff all excellent, and even tolerated my appalling Spanish without laughing :-) Will definitely use again.
"A modern hotel by Marriott with no benefits"
Great Hotel and value in excellent location and close to Trains and restaurants. but if you are an elite members of Marriott except no benefits not even water. About staff there is no comment is AMAZING, they all deserve 5stars.
