I stayed there for 2 nights during a business trip. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was lovely. The tv had CNN and the WiFi was good. The location was amazing. It was in the middle of an upscale area with shops and restaurants everywhere. Breakfast was limited but the coffee and OJ were both fresh and good. A nice, practical option if you’re in Barcelona.

My wife and I wanted to stay in Barcelona to see in the new year and could not have chosen a better base. Hotel Actual is a wonderful little hotel in a fantastic location with some of the main attractions within a15 minute walk. The hotel is well kitted out with all mod cons. The rooms are on the snug side but comfy, warm and spotlessly clean. From arrival to departure, all of the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely and fresh and tea and freshly brewed coffee and biscuits are available from 1400 - 2200 hours on the first floor. This is a nice touch and one that many of the larger chains could learn from. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hotel Actual and will definitely stay here ourselves when we return to Barcelona. Thank you to all at the hotel for making our stay so pleasurable.

Hotel Actual is located in the hub of Barcelona within walking distance of so many attractions. Spent 6 nights here for work and then leisure. You are choosing this hotel based purely on location - you could not get better at this price. It’s a perfect location for travels and sight seeing, the tour busses stop 50m from hotel door and is within walking distance of all shops. The rooms are tiny, simple but adequate. My phone could not log into the WiFi the first day for unknown reasons (yet iPad had no issues). My friend had the same trouble on her arrival as well but both were fine the next day to log in. Breakfast is very limited in terms of options and variety but adequate. Staff are friendly and helpful. I had a flight later in the day and could leave my luggage with the hotel until my airport departure. Would recommend for anyone interested in touring the city sights!

We spent two nights at the Actual Hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was in the corner on the second floor. Very comfortable, and quiet. We overlooked the main street and on Sunday morning there was a large crowd gathering and preparing for the Columbus Day parade. Never heard a sound until we opened the window. Breakfast was decent. There was a nice selection of items from paninis to boiled eggs and an assortment of pastries. The Metro was very close and Hop-On Hop-Off bus stopped within 50 yards of the hotel. I would definitely stay there again.
