This hotel is close to Catalunya Square. Unfortunately, our taxi from the airport could not find the hotel and dropped us off, pointing us in the 'direction' of the hotel. We walked for about a half an hour until we found it. The hotel is small but the rooms are comfortable. There are several local bars which are open until late and generate a lot of noise. This noise can be heard in the rooms, back or front. Breakfast was a cold buffet, plenty of cheese and cold meats. No hot food. Facility to store luggage once you have checked out for collection later in the day. Staff very friendly. This hotel is a little pricy for the facilities and comfort offered.

When staying in a hotel, there are three main things we hope for. Good location, clean rooms and a good nights sleep. Here are the pros and cons of our stay at this hotel.
Pros
- large comfortable bed
- Powerful shower
- Spacious room (we booked a superior room)
- Good value for money (we paid around £65 per night)
- Friendly reception staff
- Somewhere to store bags before departure (however at a 2 Euro cost)
- Due to the very “local” location, there were several very cheap bars/breakfast shops/local shops where products were very reasonably priced compared to other busy tourist areas
- Safe as hotel doors locked unless opened by reception staff

Cons
- location (10 minutes walk from la Ramblas and situated in the university district. You have to cut through a skateboard area which is fine but very busy with local teens. I prefer to stay more central in Barcelona where we can pop back to the hotel if needed. We couldn’t do that here as the walk was too far each time)
- Sleep quality due to noise - this hotel is situated next to the busy skatepark and in between resident flats. Therefore the noise at night was very loud with people hanging around in the local area until late. Also the walls of the hotel are like paper so you can hear when someone flushed toilet/used shower/shut room door. We had two very disturbed nights sleeps which was a shame
- Our room smelled of smoke and we think this is from the resident flats next door
- We did have a terrace as requested however the view was of an office building so not great

Overall we did not dislike our stay at Hotel Acta however due to poor sleep at night and the location, we would not stay here again.

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel and our room were clean and staff were friendly and helpful. It is within a 10 min walk to Las Ramblas, passing lots of food places and shops on the way. In order to get to the hotel from the airport we took the Aerobus (A2) for around 10€ return. We got off at Plaça Universitat and it was then about a 10 min walk to the hotel. The room had a working safe and built in hairdryer. The hotel offers Iocked storage for 2€ (non-refundable) to store your cases etc once you have checked out. Lockers can fit more than 2 cabin size cases inside so we only needed one lock for the 2 of us. We didn’t have breakfast at the hotel but it was available for a charge.
Downsides: Air con/fan in the room wasn’t great so we were quite hot in the night but it wasn’t unbearable. Shower was clean and worked well, but water leaked under the screen door if left on for too long.

Extremely good location. Only a short 10 minute walk to La Rambla. Small room but perfect for a couple for a few days and very modern and clean. Breakfast is available at an extra cost. The staff are helpful if asked but not forward and don't put themselves out which some people may prefer. We had a room on the ground floor which we was lucky enough to have a small outside area with a table and chairs, however it is blocked by a very very high (ugly) building but a very nice design if that wasn't there. Perfect hotel for a few days but no longer.

This hotel is a bit out of the way from the main sites, but the area has a nice 'local' feel with some good bars and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk. If you want to walk to the Ramblas (personally I wouldn't bother!) it's about 10-15 minutes.
The rooms are small but everything was clean and worked well. The beds were a bit hard for my liking but that's a personal thing. Staff were helpful with suggestions etc.
Breakfast was cheap at around €9, but the selection was fairly limited, as you would expect at this price. But what was there was fine.
One last practical point : we were arriving by car, which is not a good idea when staying in BCN, and it was a bit of a pain. The hotel has not car park but has a deal with a local car park. It actually looks like you can't drive down the street with the hotel on, but you can! So you have to arrive at the hotel, bail out, get the car park info and then move the car. Not ideal but not really the hotel's fault either.
Anyway, I would definitely stay here again.
