Editorial review:

Rey Juan Carlos I is 20 minutes from Barcelona but you can get back and forth using the nearby Metro. Good prices are available on weekends when the business traffic is lighter. This is a very large tall glass towered building with beautiful large rooms, swimming pools, and beautiful gardens that go back to the time when the land was used for farming.

Verified Reviews:

  • Tiny bathroom - High speed internet - Gym is spacious
  • Room is spacious - Nice pool - Very good breakfast
  • 30 euro parking - Impressive lobby - Good staff
  • Poorly located - Wonderful view from the room - Hotel was very good

                    The overall quality and proximety to the Camp Nou (Barcelona's stadium).

                    The additional charge for the Spa (16 euros) and the cost of food and refreshments - a bit on the expensive side for most travellers.

                    Always a pleasure to Stay at Rey JC1. Although this time , we could not use the pool as they close it early on week ends ? Strange and frustrating . I think the charge for the parking 30 € / day is quite expensive

                    The view from the room

                    Furniture of room should be repaired

                    Impressive overall. Certainly the gardens and the actual building.

                    No iron or ironing board. No tea and coffee facilities. No free access to gym / swimming pool. No free internet access. At over £200 gbp a room one would expect all of the above.

                    6.6

                    Very kind staff. The people at the Spa are good professionals (ask for Ilona) and the spa prices are good enough. Great coctails at Aris Bar

                    The menu at Polo restaurant is very very poor. Also the prices for the buffet are very high (6 persons = 210 euros). The mini bar and room service are also very expensive ( 1 small bottle of water 5 euros) .

                    Luxury feel- great wall climber lifts!

                    No tea and coffee making in the room

                    10.0

                    The hotel is huge, nice, excellent; reception, concierge, checkout I had a good deal for 3 nights for only 450€ which was a unique price for the room in the 11th floor. Piano playing during day by a lady in the lobby and music the the rest of the day

                    Nothing really except there was a group travelling, they made the hotel crowded every where I go I find them and forgive me for this "smelled bad"

                    The lobby was amazing, the staff was not very accommodating.

                  • Family with children
                    9.2

                    The facilities are excellent so the service and the personnel

                    Location: it is quite isolated and far from the key places of the city parking: too expensive regardless of the far location...

                  • Family with children
                    7.4

                    Staff was quite helpful and provided us whatever information we needed as tourists

                    A very nice 5 star hotel experience. A few glitches with the service, at the restaurant, but the rest was great.

                    In standard rooms, the shower a bit small and dark. Some elementary misses at the restaurant like not proposing coffee when you sit at your table for breakfast

                    Food was not up to expectation, other wise hotel is very nice and in very good location

                    The friendly concierge (Carlos) and the wonderful ambiance.

                    Pools closed early in the summer. With the warm weather we wished it was open til 11pm or so

                    Staff pleasant and professional and refused all attempts to tip. Pools are both super. Fitness center fully equipped with TechnoGym apparatus - top class.
