10/10 Exceptional

A jewel!
I really enjoyed my stay at the Sta Marta. It’s nicely located between the Gothic quarter and Barceloneta, making most sites of interest easily walkable but also close to train and metro for those that want to go further afield. It may be “only” a 2star hotel but it really doesn’t feel like one! The hotel rooms are modern and clean. The entire hotel is spotless and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I will definitely return next trip here. PS I chose to stay here because of the rave reviews and they actually are true! The Santa Marta is a jewel.

Good base for family of 4
Really nice, clean small hidden gem right next to main transportation hub. Don’t let the 2star rating make you think this is a bad hotel because that is not the truth. If you need a hotel to sleep and wash in before you see the city then this is for you.

Room but looked for a 4* hotel. Like 2* in France. Tiny room and bathroom. But its okay. Good.

Great staff!
The reservation was misleading, as we arrived to the property with all our luggage and having parked only to be directed to an alternate property 12 minutes walk away. Call/email for clearer check in instructions prior to arrival. The new hotel was nice and in the Gothic Quarter. It was clean and had AC, nice amenities. The front desk staff were outstanding with help regarding pre-travel covid testing.

2/10 Poor

I paid to stay on this hotel for a 7days a week. At day 2 I had to leave due to an emergency. At check out the clerk told me, the hotel can't give me a refund I paid Expedia. I need to cantact expedia for a refund. The hotel clerk gave me a letter explaining I only stayed there for 2 days need to be refunded by expedia. I contact Expedia, they told me Hotel decline my refund they collected the money of my full stay. I contact the hotel and they told me they can't give me a refund because I paid Expedia. Worst Experience Ever!!
