Grums Hotel is located at two steps from the Avenida Paralelo, one of the most charming streets in Barcelona where the mythic theatre "El Molino" is located. Nearby, you will find also the cruise port, the World Trade Center, Las Ramblas, Paseo Colon, the Fira of Barcelona and the Ronda Litoral.
The hotel is very central, you can walk to city centre very easily and Las ramblas is just 8/10 minutes away, always straigth from the hotel. Underground station is very close as well. Plaza del Espanha is 20m away and its a lovely walk till there. About the hotel all is very clean and tidy and rooms are big and bed super confy. I had breakfast and I really enjoy the food so I can say you should try breakfast before starting your journey in Barcelona. A big thank you to PABLO for being the most helpfull member of staff ever. Super polite and his costumer service skills are in a differente level at any time of the day or nigth. All was very good included the spa and lounge.
"Not the best choice"
Comparing the price of €105 (excluding breakfast and tax) the value for money is ok but not good. Spa entrance is not included in the room price which was unusal to us. Having €12 p.p. We experienced most of the equippment not working well (bad air in steam bath, whirlpools only working parttime, quality of water caused itchy skin,....). Breakfast for €8 p.p. Seams ok. The rooms are clean and the personnel is generally friendly. The hotel is well situated as Montjuc, harbour and Barri Gotic are within walking distance.
Great hotel just a short work to all of the attractions. Hotel staff were very helpful with directions and recommendations for where to eat and drink. Just off the beaten track in a quiet area. Room was just what was required. Very clean and there was a small fridge for our beers and water. We had breakfast on the first day and it was varied and very reasonable at 8 euro each. All in all very nice place to stay and we will be back.
Nice and modern Hotel - This hotel was chosen as it was close to company office. nice people and nice restaurant. Unfortunatley the room has three single beds and no proper table/Desk or Chair to work or eat on'' No hand cloth supplied for showering and basin is in the main room separate from Bathroom (shower /Toilet only) and no room to hang towels at basin area.
"Modern hotel in quiet part of city"
Stayed at The Grums for 4 days for business conference and will definitely consider it again when back in BCN. Pros and cons: +very friendly and helpful staff! Modern twist to hotel with average size rooms and small bathrooms, but + equipped with coffee maker and fridge in room. - Not a 4 star luxury hotel though (at least by US standards). + Very clean and minimalist vibe. + Nonsmoking hotel. Great wifi which was complimentary. + very nice breakfast buffet which we had included in our room rate - very nice, fresh variety Located in the Poblesec-Montjuic area of town within area of residential houses so +very quiet area, - at the same time, no views or balconies and - near a more run down area of the city with some homeless people sleeping at area park (however, I always felt safe even when walking alone) + 5 min walk to plaza de Colon and the south part of las Ramblas and 3 minutes to the parallel subway stop. 10 min walk to the world trade business centre.
