Went for a few days to Barcelona and stayed at the Renaissance hotel at Calle Pau Claris 122. Walking distance from the famous Sagrada Familia and also to the beach area of Barceloneta. Hotel has on the top floor a nice bar called "Goja Rooftop Experience". Partly in the open air, ideal for drinks and a light lunch. Tasted excellent artichoke and some beautiful Jamon Iberico. During buffet breakfast COVID-19 measures were well taken care off and staff super friendly.

The hotel exceeded our expectations in every possible way . Location is perfect, the taxi is super easy to be found , supermarket opposite of the hotel and many coffee shops and places to eat . Very close to many touristic attractions too . We arrived early and we did not expect to be able to check in . Lady on the reception ( Christina ) immediately arranged early check in for us without us even asking for it . Rooms are quite nice and clean . Covid protocols are fully respected in the hotel . Definitely check our the roof top bar , guys working there are super friendly and helpful. If you are looking for good restaurants and rooftop bars you should speak to reception, Marc and Jonathan suggested us amazing places and were super helpful in making reservations for us . All the places they said to go to had delicious food and definitely were worth trying out . Overall, very happy with out stay and will definitely stay again when visiting Barcelona. Thanks Renaissance and keep rocking!

I had a great time in Barcelona at this hotel. It was readily accessible from multiple metro lines and in a nice and safe neighborhood. The staff throughout the hotel were all friendly and courteous. They helped me to find a place to get a COVID test, arrange for early check in and late check out, and find a local convenience store for some supplies I needed. COVID protocols were followed throughout the hotel, and I felt safe during my stay. You could tell that the details were thought out excellently. The room had the typical amenities as expected for the Renaissance chain, and also had lots of power outlets and lighting. For those visiting from international locations, there was one universal power outlet and several USB ports throughout the room. The room was well decorated and clean and peaceful. I had no issues with sound. I had breakfast in their restaurant and dinner on their rooftop patio bar. Both were absolutely beautiful, with excellent service and food. I also used the fitness center, which was well equipped and clean. I will definitely stay here again the next time I return to Barcelona, and am recommending it to all of my friends.

Used to live in BCN and often referred friends here though had never stayed myself until now. I am so glad I did! To begin, the COVID protocols are outstanding. There was mask compliance, sanitizer, clean rooms, and social distancing. This was my first hotel stay abroad since Feb 2020 and I felt secure on site the entire stay. The staff was also incredibly helpful in making the appointment at a local clinic for the mandatory testing required to return to the United States and printed out the results needed to present at the airport. Service makes all the difference and at this property, everyone from check in to housekeeping to the terrace bar, was amazing. Everyone seemed so genuinely happy to see you that it felt like visiting with old friends. This team truly represents the best of the Marriott brand. The property itself is well situated on Pau Claris in Eixample. It's very easy to walk to metro and Placa Cayaluyna. To the north it's a great walking neighborhood in Eixample and up toward Gracia. I was there during curfew so it was very quiet at night but the hotel is off the bigger roads so a bit quieter generally. The rooms are modern, up to date, very clean. The rooftop bar had amazing views of the city. A great place to go for a drink and enjoy! This review would not be complete without mentioning the incredible Marriott bed. So comfortable and really appreciate the feather free room to accommodate my allergies. Will definitely stay here again when I'm back in town. I felt very much at home.
