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 here for a week-end to explore the city, wery good placenent. Esay access of city center just few steps away the Gotic quartier, as well as Gaudi’s Casa Mila. Hotel offers a wery nice breakfast, with a big variety of dishes. Had a nice roof terrace with a pool that can be used during summer season. Hotel bar offers a good choice of cocktails.
We stayed for 3 nights without any drama. The location is good, rooms are comfortable and bed is huge. Staff is really friendly and helpful. H10 was our safe choice for our first stay in the city and it was really convenient.
Checking in was great, the man was super nice and helpful. The hotel is nice and rooms are nice, but we had an early night last night to discover when we woke up that there were ants on our bed. See the photos! Did we sleep with ants last night? Yep. Wouldn’t expect that in a hostel, never mind a 4* hotel. Receptionist was very rude, she said there was food in the room and this is why there was ants.. So why do you offer food in the minibar? If we open it and eat it, it’s ok for ants to be on our bed?!! Awful service. This was our second stay in a H10 hotel.. will not be staying in this chain anymore.
I stayed here with some family members for a Hen Do, we stayed bed & breakfast and explored the surroundings. It’s in a great location quite close to the university. We used the spa and my what a massage we had, tried using the steam room but due to having breathing problems I didn’t last very long (my mistake). They recommended a lovely little restaurant for a dinner one night.
Our rooms were very spacious and the bathrooms were huge!! Bath and shower room together. All toiletries were provided but had to buy conditioner from a local shop as they didn’t provide any but otherwise it was perfect! Great view from the roof too!!
Such a great hotel =)
The staff was nice. The A/C broke and when I reported the problem I received no help. I check out the next day to a much better hotel with working A/C. Even in November room need working A/C. The location was not ideal but not terrible either.
