Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eygone Excellent Room
I booked this hotel as a gap fill in-between reservations from a stay north of Barcelona to a hotel by the waterfront in the City.
I wish, however that I had booked the hotel for my entire stay in Barcelona. The room was really great, well appointed and comfortable. In addition the hotel is well located to get around the city.
For sure this will be my go-to hotel next time around.

There is no General Manager and this is sadly reflected in the service delivery. All hotels have problems and as a regular guest at IHG properties I know that if I have ever had a problem, it has been attended to with interest and the hotel has followed up to see if everything was to my satisfaction as they want to retain me as a customer - not this hotel !!

We stayed for a week. Everything was perfect. From the convenient location of the hotel to the hotel staff. Above all, Soraya, and Tanara (receptionists) and Carlos ( the breakfast waiter) were warm, knowledgeable, and extremely accommodating. They made every effort to ensure our stay was a memorable one. Thank you !

The Hotel Indigo in Barcelona is fabulous.
This property offers value for money in abundance: A room with a view, a pool, terrific personnel on hand when needed and taxis speeding past the front door every hour of the day.
This is a luxury experience without rack-rate prices.

It is not worth staying at this hotel in terms of value for cost. If you do stay at this hotel, do not stay in the ground floor rooms as there is a horrible smell that permeates these rooms.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wandering Haggis Not what I expected
As a Platinum Ambassador I have stayed in a number of IHG properties, and so was curious to try an Indigo hotel.; however, this visit did not encourage me to try one again. The air-conditioning did not function at all on the first night, and the room was swelteringly hot, making sleep impossible. This was fixed the next day after several attempts. The fridge did not function correctly and was never fixed. The bathroom sink was dirty and grubby and remained so throughout. The concierge staff was not able to recommend a good local restaurant but sent us to a tourist trap although we had expressively said we wanted to avoid one. On check-in we were offered a complimentary drink, which turned out to literally mean ONE drink but we were two of us in the room. On the up-side, the staff were generally helpful and friendly, the beds very comfortable, and the central location perfect.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mum Mo Eclectic design in great location
The hotel had a great design perfect for Barcelona. We were in Room 113 which had a balcony with a small table outside. Although the street was noisy, there was virtually no noise with the windows closed and blackout curtains darkened the room wonderfully. The bathroom rain shower was great, and there was plenty of storage room in the bathroom so it didn't feel cramped. Front desk staff were able to store our luggage the last day due to late flight, and assisted in posting postcards (which were complimentary in the room!). Great location near the city center, but a street or so off the main plaza so a little quieter.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jofri Worst service ever experienced
Can't recommend this hotel to anyone as the customer care service at the reception and especially from the hotel's management wasn't in any way helpful. The problem being that I wanted to change my reservation for June 6-8 to June 8-10. I tried to call the hotel at around 3:50 p.m. on June 6 to change my reservation. However the line was busy for many minutes and I hung up. I called again a little later and got after some waiting time finally in contact with the reception and explained my case. She replied that it was too late to change my booking since that should have been done latest on 4 p.m. one day before arrival (implying June 5). I said that this wasn't correct as it in my reservation was clearly and unambiguously written under the cancellation policy terms and conditions that "cancellations" should be made latest on June 6 at 4 p.m. (local hotel time) in order to avoid a one night room charge. However, in my case I wanted to make a change to my reservation, which the hotel blocked me from doing unless I accepted a one night charge.
I have been investigating the issue at hand and my preliminary conclusions are that the hotel's handling of my reservation and billing issue is legally incorrect and not in accordance with the legal text of the terms and conditions of my reservation.
For instance has other major hotel chain's guest eelations department informed me that they have similar terms and conditions for cancellations policies as IHG, but changes to a reservation are however possible up until midnight on the day of arrival without a one night penalty charge.
I strongly find that your hotel hasn't approached and decided upon my billing issue in a customer friendly, fair, reasonable and also in a legal sense correct and accomodating way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dubain great staff, location, and bed but has one issue
One and only one shortcoming. The bathroom had no ventilation so without opening the bathroom door and the terrace door, there was a strong persistent sewage scent. We figure out after the first day to just keep both doors open but that's a bit much to ask. Otherwise the staff is flawless, design is fresh and unique, and the bed is one of the most comfortable i've had in any ihg property. Also, the location is very central and convenient.

Our experience was excellent! The only problem (minor) was that the AC vent blew directly over the bed. Had to turn it off and on more often the should have. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable.
The staff in all areas of the hotel were attentive, friendly and helpful.

Really like the Hotel Indigo properties and this one in Barcelona was no exception. Smartly designed hotel with friendly staff, good bar and restaurant, and comfortable rooms. The key to this property, however, is its location - it cannot be beat as a central location in the city. Easy to walk to many popular areas (e.g the large Merkat on Ramblas or the Born district), and taxis to places too far to walk are easy to get (and fairly inexpensive due to the great location).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sylv12 great base for exploring barcelona
This hotel is 5 minutes on foot from placa catalunya, where the tourist buses board, the airport bus picks up and the metro is located, but it is quieter area, and we were not aware of street noise at all.
The reception staff were friendly, and knowledgable, helping with maps, directions. We ate in the restaurant once for dinner which we enjoyed, and had the buffet breakfast which had lots of choice, hot and cold food, fresh coffee and juice/fruit.
We had a gaudi design on the room wall which was fun, comfy bed and lovely shower in the bathroom, with tea/coffee facilities in the room, and juice/water in fridge daily. Everything is modern and bright, the public areas are comfortable, and the staff care for you well.
There is a terrace and small pool, but were too busy to take advantage of these.
We would definitely stay here again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 The worst holiday in my life!!
We stayed in the Hotel Indigo Barcelona 3 weeks ago for 4 days in April. After we checked out from the hotel the guest relations staff contacted me, claiming that we took a lamp from the room. But I never saw the lamp the mentined - this lamp wasn't at the room at all. Luckily I made some photos of the room at the first moment we entered there for the first time, clearly showing that the lamp wasn't in the roam at the beginning. I sent them the photos, but the guest-relation replied me that they don't care and going to charge my credit card. Finally they tried to charge my card, but my bank refunded me the money and opened a VISA dispute.
This is really ridiculous! How they can accuse someone without having some real evidences?? We stayed in many hotels around the world and I never had such problems that the hotel stuff accused us of stealing!! We have the photos clearly proving that the lamp wasn't in the room! Their housekeeping staff should check the rooms properly, and make sure that it is fully ok before checking in people. Why they didn't do that? Why we should pay for the lamp, that was stolen by someone else?? Why should I find and send them the photos, which I initially took for myself to share on the Facebook? I wander, do we really look like people who would steal some silly lamp from the hotel room??? I would not take this lamp even for free...
The staff from the guest-relation is VERY unprofessional and unhelpful. The only action they did is to accuse us, instead trying to investigate this case more properly. They just don't care!! Why they didn't check cameras on the coridor/lift, why they couldn't check the room access log? In normal hotels such situation should not happen at all, and the things should be properly checked before letting guests into the room.
I would suggest to avoid this hotel - if something will happen you will be the first person to blame.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Travelingshoes Excellent Hotel, Wonderful Location
An excellent hotel in a perfect location. You can get to all the great things in the area in a few minutes walking. It is only a block and a half away from the Passeig de Gràcia and is also right near the main square, the Plaça de Catalunya, . Getting to the Gothic Quarter & the Ramblas was a short walk, as were Gaudi's Casa Batlló and La Pedrera. The Palau de la Música was also a short walk from the hotel.
The hotel is beautifully decorated. The breakfast was good and kept well stocked.
The service was friendly and helpful, the staff went out of their way to make us comfortable and to insure our stay was great. The hotel also has a great bar. The bartender was generous and made it a very pleasant experience to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
We will stay there again on our next trio to Barcelona. I highly recommend this hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ali-and-Alan Stunningly decor and such a comfy bed
If you are looking for a hotel with excellent service, beautifully cleaned rooms, comfy sleeping conditions and will be spending your time enjoying what the city has to offer, then this is definitely the place for you. We will be back.
We booked in for a 4 night holiday stay and were blown away from the very start. 5 days later and we were still feeling very smug about our choice of hotel. It is in a great location, within walking distance from everything, with very professional and friendly staff. If you like Gaudi, then you'll love the decor of the hotel reception and the rooms!
Arriving early in the day, we planned to dump our bags at the hotel. The reception staff greeted us in English (all had name badges with little flags of languages they spoke). Within minutes, we were upgraded to an Executive room (211) and allowed to check in straight away - no fuss. The room was stunning (very colourful shot of Casa Battlo as the feature wall), massive comfy bed, espresso machine, tv etc; bathroom was huge with a fab shower over a jaccuzzi style bath. Any worries we had about the room facing the road with early morning sun and traffic noise disappeared when we woke up at 12:30 the next afternoon. Blackout blinds and double glazing definitely work! We never made it to breakfast on any morning (which finished at 10:30am), but there was always orange juice and water available in the room. Still plenty of alternative options in the city. Turn left out of the hotel and then right at the crossroad, we found a small cafe where we had 2 americano's, a croissant and a Spanish baguette outside on the pavement for less than €5.
We spoke to Cristina (I hope I've got the name right) on reception about football tickets to see Barcelona play on the Saturday night, she said she could book tickets and it was cheaper online, but within seconds she had the web site up, told us where the best seats were, and was booking tickets for us anyway. Wifi is fully available throughout the rooms, with extra tablets, macs and a printer down in the reception area so we could print the tickets. Easy peasy - and the football was excellent.
Although we didn't eat at the hotel, so we can't comment on food, the cocktail bar was a good start to the evening.
I've read one of the other recent reviews and whilst they might have a point on the lift being slowish, we preferred to take the stairs. We had a small balcony - but that is in keeping with the rest of Barcelona. You don't go to Barcelona to stay in a hotel room unless it's for business reasons. As for the air-conditioning, it was 23 degrees C outside and the locals were still wearing coats and jumpers (what!) - we didn't have an issue with the room temperature in April. We didn't actually notice anything that affected our holiday adversely.

I really had a nice stay with you and it was a great experience for me because it was my first time in Barcelona and in Indigo hotels as well. I'd like to thank the reception staff who work professionally and hard to make me happy and stay in an excellent way. I want to extend my thank especially Ms. Tamara who are really showed her professional attitude to make me satisfied during my stay with a big smile drowning in her face. She never said no to any of my requests and make sure I'm having a pleasant stay there for 3 days.
I appreciate her work and her colleagues and thank you a lot.
