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
With so many choices it's hard ton pick a hotel in Barcelona. I booked at H10 Cassanova and hoped for the best... seriously best decision ever. Location is great. Not far from the airport or port. Staff is exceptional, rooms were wonderful, rooftop bar was amazing. We were able to book tours through the hotel which was great and there's lots of cafes and bars nearby. We stayed for 3 days then left on a cruise. Upon arriving back we didn't realize we had to disembark the boat at 8am and our flight was delayed! We called the only place we knew... H10 Cassanova.. they remembered us and kindly held our luggage for us while we killed some time and allowed us to relax on the roof for a couple hours... they showed us such kindness. They did not have to do all this for us but they went above and beyond. Thank you Guillermo, Angel,Ignassi, and all the rest of the staff. We will be back to see you soon. If you need a hotel in Barcelona you will not regret H10 CASSANOVA!
We were happy with our stay at H10 Casanova. The staff were particularly helpful on arrival and always greeted us well during our stay. The room was comfortable, the roof bar was a good place to sit for a while (no real view) and we found walking around the city from here was fine. H10 is very good for the airport shuttle bus, with only a few minutes walk from the arrival and departure stops (buy a return ticket online).
We stayed for 5 nights in June, we were in Barcelona for the Catalunya MotoGP. It’s a lovely hotel, ideally located for the main attractions. There are plenty of bars and restaurants close by.
We caught the Aerobus, it cost 5.90€ each way and we got off at Urgell which was about a block away from the hotel.
The hotel reception staff were very friendly and helpful, special thanks to Berta who helped to arrange transport to the Circuit.
We stayed in a superior room which was on the 6th Floor. It was very clean and spacious, with a comfy bed and a lovely bathroom, we didn’t have a view, we looked out onto other rooms, which didn’t really matter as we were out most of the day.
We went up to the rooftop bar a couple of times, it was lovely to catch a few rays with a cocktail.
We didn’t eat at the hotel, we found a little gem of a restaurant called Eixampeling which was a couple of blocks away.
We would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends, we had a great stay.
Stayed for 6 nights and was the perfect location for us to see Barcelona. We spent 2 days at the beach which is around a 45 minute walk away but there’s plenty to see on route and bars and cafes if you want a break. Was my boyfriends birthday one of the days and he was treated to a bottle of cava and strawberries in the room alongside a spa voucher (didn’t use) but was a lovely touch! Breakfast was lovely lots of choice! Roof top bar is quite expensive but it is lovely there. Didn’t eat tea at the hotel however there are plenty of places nearby which are also a lot cheaper. The room had little storage space and was so dark it was hard to see into the wardrobe. The small balcony is nice. We would definitely stay again if we were to visit Barcelona again!
3 days spent in this hotel. The reception is top and smiling, the hotel very wery situated. The room was clean and the bed particularly confortable. The only disagreament was the fact that the swimming pool was very small. But except that, I really recommend.
