"Best Hotel I've Stayed in for the Money" Barcelona Princess Hotel Tip by Verdone

Barcelona Princess Hotel, Barcelona: 2,728 reviews and 16 photos

This hotel is easily the best hotel I've stayed in for the money. Do not book this hotel through their website as rooms go for around 250-300 euros a night. Visit the website www.spainbookers.com. There I was able to book rooms for around 75 euros a night. The hotel was fantastic, there is a free mini-bar in every room which is restocked daily. They have an inhouse spa, where you can book a message for around 45 euros for one hour. When you enter the hotel you walk into the lobby and there is a bar off to your left. On the third floor there is also a really nice restaurant, that serves an incredible breakfast buffet. The spa is located on the third floor, in addition to the second pool and hot tub. The 23rd floor contains the first outdoor pool, which is shaped like a rectangle, and has a beautiful view of the Barcelona coast. This hotel is situated next to the new convention center and only a short walk from the beach. It is attached to a big mall with a nice food court if you want a quick bite to eat. The hotel is newly contructed and has a very modern look. The rooms contain electric window shades and there is a large glass wall separating the bathroom from the bedroom. If you want privacy you simply drop the electric divider to separate the bathroom. We had an incredible stay at this hotel. Room service was fast and the hotel staff was helpful. The hotel is a 7 euro taxi ride from Las Ramblas and there is also an underground station nearby. The only negatives were that the hotels free internet connection was very slow most of the time and they only have two computers. Also, when looking near the beach there is a small industrial area with a couple factories of some sort. They kind of hurt the view, but the beach is still very nice.
