Review: Hotel Amister Barcelona

Page Content

Hotel Amister Barcelona Main Entrance

I was most impressed with this beautiful little hotel. Hotel Amister Barcelona is housed inside a refurbished classical building on a corner on Avenida Roma.

The road it is on isn't the prettiest but the hotel is on the edge of one of Barcelona's prettiest areas, Eixample, and the interior of the hotel will do wonders for a relaxed and comfortable state of mind. It really is beautiful and modern and so well thought-out, from the furniture to the lighting.

This area also has Wi-Fi. There is no pool, but there is a solarium if you want to top up your tan. The hotel uses its walls to exhibit colorful, contemporary work from Spanish artists. Also, children under the age of four get to stay free. The hotel also has an ironing and laundry service.

Business Facilities

The Hotel Amister offers 3 rooms for any occasion. The rooms can hold from 10 to 50 people and are equipped with the latest technology (Wi-Fi, adsl). 2 have good natural light and all 3 have access for people with a disability.

Our Insider Tip

Nobody likes waiting around in long queues to get their COVID test. The Express COVID testing service we recommend only works by appointment ensuring that you get tested when you need to without having to queue. Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight or cruise offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport or from a cruise liner. You have your certificates on time without a rush, you have time to correct inaccuracies on your certificate and you have time to re-arrange your flight or other travel plans if you should test positive. To learn more about how to get your COVID travel certificates valid for planes, cruises and other transport, follow one of the links below to learn more.



There are 52 rooms in the Amister Hotel Barcelona. There are rooms for non-smokers and for people with a disability, and also there are some joined by an inter-connecting door. All rooms are fitted with air-conditioning, a safety box, Satellite TV, internet connection and a desk. They have been designed in a sparse and modern way but are classy and comfortable. The Avenida Roma is not too busy, and the rooms are also soundproofed. There is also a mini-bar in each room, and you get a paper every day.

The hotel Amister Barcelona has one suite and several privilege rooms which have a small lounge area with sofa.
