Positive Reviews

Barcelona centre; walk Ramblas, Plaza Catalunya.

One of the highlights repeatedly mentioned by guests was this hotel's location; which is said to be very central for Barcelona, placing them just a short stroll away from Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, and plenty of shopping and dining. On top of this, those who stayed said they were very convenient to metro and bus stops, including pick-up points for the airport buses and the hop-on, hop-off sightseeing trips.

Friendly, courteous staff.

According to reviews, the staff members at Pelayo were found to be courteous and friendly, and are also said to speak English well. Furthermore, they are apparently found at the reception at all hours.

Basic, clean rooms with Wi-Fi and good price.

Although they are said to be basic, the rooms here were nevertheless reported as being clean and were said to have a decent standard of Wi-Fi. More importantly, some guests said that they considered them to provide great value for money.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms, some without windows, or with smells.

Some of those who stayed here thought their rooms and beds were rather small, while others seemed disappointed to be assigned a room without windows. On that note, guests occasionally reported a bad smell in their room, perhaps related to that lack of ventilation.

Interior soundproofing not great.

The soundproofing inside the building is apparently not so great, and a handful of guests said they had disturbed sleep thanks to hearing the movements of other guests and staff — so perhaps think about taking your earplugs.

No lift to the first floor.

It appears that there is no lift to the first floor at Pelayo, but the staff is said to be great in helping carry luggage up, so this is mainly an issue for the less mobile.
