Lovely 4 star hotels on Barcelona city centre

These are the 4 stars hotels on the city centre that we deeply recommend. We guarantee you will be totally satisfied if staying at any of these 4 star hotels. We live in Barcelona. We know our recommendations.

  • Catalonia Port

    Catalonia Port ★★★★

    Clean and modern decoration

    At the port, in the Gothic quarter not far from Las Ramblas, this new and little 41 room hotel is very pleasant. Clean and modern decoration, large and silent rooms with large beds, a roof pool and solarium. We appreciate the friendly and efficient personnel, and we love its strategic location to visit the city without too long walks...

    Ample, 1 (Plaça Duc de Medinaceli), 08002, Barcelona
  • Royal Ramblas

    Royal Ramblas ★★★★

    Central and functional

    On the Ramblas and a minute from Plaça Catalunya, The Royal Ramblas Hotel is functional in all its splendor. Nice atmosphere in the common areas tastefully decorated, being the restaurant and lounge areas really significant. Rooms not overly large, but very comfortable and well equipped. Once installed you will only have to think about one thing: visit Barcelona by foot.

    Las Ramblas, 117, 08002, Barcelona
  • Hotel Casa Camper

    Hotel Casa Camper ★★★★

    Eco hotel recycled materials

    In the fashion district of the Raval, 25 rather original rooms since they are separate into two along a corridor: a part on a street side with a small living room/office and the room itself on the interior side of the building, for a better sleep. Decoration is respectful of the environment - faithful to the philosophy of his owner, the manufacturer of shoes- all there is recycled. A decoration carried out by Ferran Amat owner of the most beautiful design shop of Barcelona: Vinçon. 
    There is no traditional restaurant or bar but a snack bar, open 24/24 in self-service: very practical…

    Elisabets, 11, 08001, Barcelona
  • Hotel Pulitzer

    Hotel Pulitzer ★★★★

    We love it!

    Hard to be more centric, two steps from the Ramblas and the Plaça de Catalunya. 91 rooms decorated by Lazaro Rosa, all black and white, marble and leather with sophisticated lightning. Not very large but well distributed. We appreciate this hotel for the atmosphere: à la mode bar, meeting site for locals on Wednesday and Saturday nights, and during summer time the “Bar du Ciel” (Heaven’s bar) animated by local DJ’s to profit of a magnificent view of Barcelona. We love it!

    Bergara, 8, 08002, Barcelona

Recommended 3 star hotels on Barcelona city centre

On a lower budget, we have chosen the following 3 star hotels for our special recommendations in Barcelona city centre. We know you will enjoy the quality of these recommended 3 stars.

  • Room Mate Pau

    Room Mate Pau ★★★

    Impressive design for this 3 *

    The chain of hotels Room Mate has an excellent reputation. Room Mate Pau is the perfect example of that. One three stars marvelously located well in city centre - close to Plaza Catalunya - which will enable you to discover Barcelona by walking. We love the ultramodern wooden decoration with white and gray surfaces and some beautiful objects where one feels immediately at ease. 

    Fontanella, 7, 08010, Barcelona
  • Andante Hotel

    Andante Hotel ★★★

    Rooftop pool and great services!

    134 rooms right in city centre area. The Andante is modern, very comfortable and practical. A new generation of hotel, hard to criticized due to its overall quality. One retains especially in this hotel a superb swimming pool terrace with a stunning view over the city. A great 3 stars and definitively a good quality/situation/price choice.

    Avenida de les Drassanes, 23-25, 08001, Barcelona
  • Musik Boutique Hotel

    Musik Boutique Hotel ★★★

    Awesome, central, modern!

    In the centre, not far from the Market Santa Caterina that we adore, Musik Boutique hotel is another example of these new 3 stars of great quality. The rooms decorated with modernity are very comfortable. The stress is laid on the quality of the services and the councils like to give you the good addresses or the things to do in Barcelona the very same day. Good breakfast. Perfectly located in the old city, this hotel is very a wise choice.

    Sant Pere Mes Baix, 62, 08002, Barcelona

    An irresistible guesthouse

    Ideally located in the centre of Barcelona, the Violetta Boutique is part of the new generation of guesthouses. We are far from the old and typical guesthouses.

    Caspe, 38, 08010, Barcelona

    Don Moustache Boutique Hostel ★★

    A cool name for a charming hostal

    30 rooms and dormitories decorated with simplicity but a lot of taste. Small terraces for certain rooms, a lounge really sympathetic, free wifi for all. Bon Moustache Hostel is the bargain not to miss of the moment.

    Hostal BCN Ramblas ★★

    When hostal meets design..

    A perfect guest house of 11 rooms just opposite the famous market Boqueria.

  32. un petit faible pour cet hôtel Ohla - bcn (19 Nov 2012 - 08:30)

    Le ohla est superbement bien situé pour visiter la ville. Il est surtout admirablement bien décoré et sympathique dès le premier coup d'oeil.. Bref une bonne pioche sur les Ramblas

  33. Hotel Gran Ducat a Barcellona - Giovanni Di Pilato (19 Sep 2012 - 18:00)

    ottima posizione per qualsiasi destinazione (anche a piedi)
    encomiabile pulizia (i bagni hanno anche il bidet, cosa rara all'estero)
    personale molto disponibile (specie Maria che capisce anche l'italiano)
    colazione (da noi non provata) effettuabile in vari locali a fianco dell'hotel (anche con yogurth e frutta)
    stanze non particolarmente grandi e con vedute in gran parte su cavedi interni
    il rumore (tanto temuto da altri) della sottostante metro appena percepiti (per questo noi avevamo chiesto il 5° piano)
    prezzi non certo elevati e complessivamente pienamente accettabili
    hotel a nostro parere senz'altro da consigliare

  34. dans le centre - mlv (13 Jun 2012 - 10:00)

    Il faut absolument prendre un hôtel dans le centre de Barcelone. Tout est ensuite très facile pour se déplacer à pieds, pour visiter, etc.

  35. le Neri! - gianca (3 Jun 2012 - 11:00)

    Le Neri est absolument parfait. Bien situé, magnifiquement décoré, personnel sympa. Il est important de bien tomber quand on découvre une ville. Une bonne "pioche".

  36. Barcelona Catedral is great - eddy (12 May 2012 - 12:00)

    love the Barcelona Catedral hotel, very good location in city center and fun rooftop perfect for sun and relax

  37. Hesperia Ramblas - frank (11 Apr 2012 - 16:45)

    Hesperia Ramblas is amaizing. Small but super design and perfectly located. We had a real good deal for our stay in Barcelona.

  38. Oui au Catalonia Port - bibi (4 Apr 2012 - 20:00)

    En effet le Catalonia Port est tip top. Une bonne adresse pas trop chère et super bien située. Ne pas hésiter!

  39. Hotel 1898 just perfect - Far (1 Apr 2012 - 19:00)
