Not quite designer and too big to be boutique, the H10 Casanova still feels groovier than most chain hotels. The vivid green backlit bar in the spacious lobby-cum-lounge provides a focal point to the white leather sofas and halfmoon armchairs arranged in front of large picture windows that look onto the stately apartment buildings of the Gran Via, giving a pleasing sense of place. Guestrooms are uniformly decorated in muted shades of gold, burgundy and chocolate, but the roof terrace strikes a trendier note with charcoal-gray walls, wood deck and white-on-white sun loungers. An upbeat soundtrack roaming from jazz and swing to disco and house adds to the feel-good factor.
Bed and Bath
All 124 guestrooms have the same aesthetic: gauzy drapes at the window in shades of beige and gray, beech-colored parquet on the floors, and modern, gold-painted fixtures such as desks and occasional tables. The key word here is comfort, and all but the smallest rooms have a sofa, a plasma TV and free WiFi, with thoughtful touches like bottled water on the bedside tables and fluffy white bathrobes. Two-room suites are great for families, and throughout you’ll find sleek bathrooms that are well appointed with a bathtub and shower, although those in the Deluxe rooms are rather petite.
The eighth-floor Sky Bar serves poolside cocktails and burgers throughout the summer, and the DJ-helmed Ona Lounge is open year-round for drinks and tapas. Breakfast is served in the light-flooded Mediterrani restaurant, which overlooks the Gran Vía. There’s a small fitness center and a spa decked out with natural woods and bamboo, and the treatments are very reasonably priced.
In the Area
Situated just above the newly fashionable Sant Antoni neighborhood, which spills out from its Art Nouveau market, the H10 Casanova is a great spot for just hanging out. Leafy streets lined with smart townhouses give it a village feel, and on Carrer del Parlament you’ll find a vibe that’s as much Greenwich Village as Barcelona. The street teems with hip bars and restaurants and boutique clothes shops, as well as some more old-fashioned venues such as the legendary Horchateria Sirvent, which has the finest tigernut milk in town, and Pa I Trago for staunchly traditional dishes. Across the road you’ll find the iconic Café Escribà, which opened in 1906. For tapas head to La Flauta, named for a delightfully chewy, baton-shaped bread stick unique to Catalunya. Filled with Iberian ham or manchego cheese, it makes an excellent breakfast or light lunch. Dine alfresco on a pretty terrace at Taller de Tapas on Rambla de Catalunya, where the specials include a sublime lobster rice and slow-roasted mountain lamb.
How to Get There
Stayed 3 nights at this hotel.
Check in was quick and friendly and offered a glass of bubbly on arrival which was a nice touch!
First impressions clean and modern with a
strong smell of cleanliness.
Checked into room 510 on 5th floor, room very basic, wooden floors scratched and walls marked, furniture in need of updating and room needed renovating too! String smell of cleaning products ! Bathroom really nice and modern! Very impressed!
Air con did not work - complained at reception to be told it was regulated ! Not sure what that means but we were uncomfortably and extremely hot at night! This is in March - I dread to think how it would be in a few months time!
Could open balcony door but main road extremely noisy resembling M25!
Balcony very small just enough room to stand ! Not enough room to fit a chair!
Very noisy at night with doors constantly being slammed by other guests, this coupled with no air con led to continuous sleepless nights !
Not allowed to bring any food or drinks into room from outside - there is a mini bar with expensive prices!
Breakfast good value ! Buffet style ! Plenty of choice and constantly replenished! even able to help yourself to bubbly ! Food on the hot counter always tended to be Luke warm/cold ie, scrambled egg, sausages !
Reception staff very helpful and suggested some really good restaurants to visit
Hotel a bit of a distance to walk to different land marks ! all in all over the 4 days we walked 27.1 miles and are now paying the price with sore feet and blisters!
Check out we were surprised to lean we had to pay city tax per person per night!
I wouldn’t stay here again even though it is good value for money!
Just come back from a three night stay at this lovely hotel situated close to the famous La Rambla. From entering the hotel we were made to feel welcome by the two receptionists Rosa and Aleixa who were both attentative and friendly and helped us to plan our days events within minutes of meeting them. We stayed in room 411 which, for me as a people watcher was perfect for looking out from our balcony to the people walking about in front of the hotel. The only downside is that you are directly outside the elevator and some guests can be quite loud returning to their rooms. The breakfast was very nice with a really good selection of foods catering for everyone’s needs. Due to the time of year the rooftop bar was not being used but I still went and had a look. The plunge pool, although it was empty I would describe as a very very large bath but I am sure in the summer months would be fit for purpose. The gym was about 6/7 separate items of cardio equipment which would give you a good workout.
Throughout our stay whenever we encountered any members of staff they were always friendly and helpful and a credit to the hotel. As I said in my headline I have even joined the H10 club.
Stayed here for 2 nights on a hen weekend and booked for 3 adults. The room had 2 reasonable size single beds and a made up sofa bed for the 3rd adult. Not much room to manoeuvre around once luggage was out but bathroom was very large and came with many different complimentary toiletries. As room service did not start until 11am and we didn’t fancy breakfast they bought us up a kettle, tea/coffees instead.
Had the bonus of a balcony and was nice to be able open the doors to them and have a coffee on the balcony in the morning. Traffic is very loud outside but once those doors are shut you wouldn’t even know you were in a city - it was so peaceful.
Staff are very helpful, check-in and out was easy enough and the hotel itself is near some nice restaurants and not too far walk away from Las Ramblas strip. Taxis arrive quickly on call from reception.
Rooftop pool and bar were closed as it was off peak but you could still go up there and take in the view.
Overall a comfortable stay, in a good location at a reasonable price per night.
We have been at this great hotel for 4 days. The location is wonderful. We had an interior superior double. The service was excellent. Andrea at the front desk helped us plan several tours. Her expertise and kindness were extremely appreciated. The breakfast was very convenient and delicious.
