Ok, but far from great

Good things first: great location, kind staff, room cleanliness. And the rest of it: I am a bit biased, as my regular hotel in Barcelona was full, so I had to find an alternative. I have stayed in Hotel Rialto before, about six years ago, while a lot of construction work was going on, so I had high hopes for my most recent visit. I ordered a double room and paid roughly 100 euros/night, which off-season should get you something good. I got a room that was about 14 m2 with one chair, no table and so little room that I can't even begin to imagine how two people should fit in it without getting on each other's nerves. The bathroom was about 3-3,5 m2. Luckily, I travelled alone this time. I stay in hotels several times a year, and go to Barcelona 2-4 times a year. I find that most 3-star and 4-star hotels (Rialto had three) have free wi-fi available to its guest. More often than not, there is a refrigerator in the room too and, a closet of a certain size, usually with an ironing board. Or maybe I'm just lucky? In the Hotel Rialto I paid 2 euros for one hour of (very, very, very slow) Internet, if I wanted to have a shirt ironed I had to pay for it, even if I just wanted to do it myself. The closet was the size of a refrigerator and I had to fold my pants because it was so small. The food in the restaurant was below average, and I strongly recommend people to find a better (and cheaper) restaurant elsewhere. The breakfast buffet was impressive and only cost 10 euros. I've never understood why they don't serve decent juice in hotels in Spain. It's always soft drinks containing too many artificial sweets and hardly any real fruit. There was no scrambled eggs or soft boiled eggs, which was a bit disappointing. However, at 10 euros I think you got a good selection. To sum it up: ok hotel, great location, but you can do much better in Barcelona with the same budget. I will not be staying in this hotel again myself.

Excellent Location

This hotel is perfectly placed to enjoy your stay in Barcelona. I went away for a long weekend with my 19 year old daughter and I wanted somewhere which was close to the centre of Barcelona for her but somewhere where I could relax as well. The Rialto Hotel did both of those things. It's less than a 5 minute walk from Las Ramblas where there are lots of restaurants & shops & literally just behind the hotel is a perfect square where they serve lovely tapas and you can watch the world go by while you drink a glass of sangria. The rooms at the hotel where comfortable if basic but given we only slept there they were fine. Our room was at the back so very quiet with only downside being a view of the a wall, again not an issue as we didn't spend daytime hours there. We didn't eat at the hotel at all so cannot comment on food. We had no complaints about the hotel & would definatly stay there again on our next visit. Also just to say that as two women travelling on our own we didn't at anytime during our stay in Barcelona feel threatened or in danger of being robbed. We took sensible precautions & even later at night we felt perfectly safe walking around the town (in well lit areas of course). .

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

T10 ticket is brilliant to get around Barcelona and for a long weekend gives enough options inc train, metro, bus & tram to get to most places within the city. As name suggests you can us it 10 times.

The location of the hotel is great! It seems like you stay in the middle of Rambla but in the quiet place in the same time. We needed the WiFi internet in the room that is disapointed a bit our stay - I wish the hotel to resolv this problem soon!

Great location in the old town

Great location in the old part of the town. Excellent restaurants in the neighbourhood. Very good breakfast. Lousy room: we had a narrow window into a 4x3 meter air shaft. Not very pleasant. When we arrived, the receptionist appeared lazy and not very informative. Not good service in the way we are used to as hotel guests.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Out to the left. 20-30 meter down the road, take to the left. Go through a short alley to the restaurant: Les Quinze Nits. You may have to line-up, but it is worth it. It is one of the best restaurants in Barcelona. Enjoy it !

Hotel very nice and comfortable,

Hotel very nice and comfortable, situated in an ideal area close to port and bars, and the rambles.I myself never dinned in the evening at the hotel,but the breakfast was good,staff in restaurant lacked the friendly smile to make you feel welcome, However it can not be easy to understand and cater for all nationalities.Reception staff very helpful. Maids services good. The lift service very slow,having the maids using the customers lifts not good!Rooms could do with tea/coffee making facilities. And at least 1 English speaking news channel.But all in all recommend this Hotel.

The hotel is in a great location.

The hotel is in a great location. However staff were not very friendly, and werent very interested in being helpful. The room was small and the linen smelt very musty like it hadnt been used for a long time. The bathroom was very nice. The restaurant where breakfast was served was huge and the range was pretty good.

Breakfast not included in my booking

Breakfast not included in my booking and the price was 14euros i feel this was too expensive when you can get a 3 course lunch at a good estaurant for 10 euros . The person in charge of the breakfast room was very rude .

Best location, in Gothic quarter

Best location, in Gothic quarter close to everything including Ramblas, and only 15 minute walk to the Barceloneta beach. Would recommend to anyone. And Aircon in July was a lifesaver!!
