This page gives you an essential guide to the Hotel Serhs Rivoli Rambla in Barcelona and includes a full description of the hotel facilities and amenities in the area of the hotel.

The first thing you will notice about the Hotel Serhs Rivoli Rambla in Barcelona is its impressive façade, Art Deco in style, towering over La Rambla. The location is paramount, a 5 minute walk from Plaça de Catalunya and 10 minutes into the heart of the Barri Gòtic and the Barcelona cathedral.

Our Insider Tip

Getting your COVID test in the city centre before your flight offers many advantages over getting tested in the Airport. 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 if you should test positive.

Hotel Serhs Rivoli Rambla Facilities

Walking into the hotel the reception is on the right. The reception staff are helpful and are happy to give you directions and advice for your visit.

The hall is cool and dark and has some quite bizarre murals painted everywhere. It is actually a piano lounge more than a lobby and boasts a long, curved and well-stocked bar which has reasonably-priced cocktails.

The highlight of this hotel is its terrace which has panoramic views over Barcelona and is a lovely place to sit and soak up some sun. The terrace is also home to the gym, solarium, sauna and Jacuzzi, perfect for those lazy siesta times.

If you are in Barcelona for business then the hotel has a comprehensive business centre. All rooms are equipped with terminals for computers, TVs, microphones and fax machines.

Hotel Rooms

The hotel has 130 rooms, of varying styles (some are modern, some have more traditional touches). There are 10 suites if you really feel like splashing out. The rooms all have air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a safe, satellite TV, phone lines and all are soundproofed so it is easier to ignore the hectic pace of La Rambla on your doorstep.

Nevertheless if you are a light sleeper you might not want to take any chances and book a room at the back of the hotel, which might not get so much natural light but at least it will be quieter. Some rooms also have small terraces.

Amenities in the Area

The Boqueria market is but a 4 minute walk down the Rambla (turn left when leaving the hotel). The market is useful if you feel like picking up your own breakfast or picnic.

If you don't feel up to the sensory overload of the market then Carrefour Express, La Rambla,113, is a large supermarket a few minutes down the Rambla on the other side.

The internet café Easynet, La Rambla, 31, is on the other side of the road near Drassanes metro. However be careful because this place is rife with bag snatching. Otherwise there are lots of internet cafes in the Raval which are a lot cheaper but more cramped.

Our Insider Tip

There is a bank and cash machine right on the street front of the hotel.

Hotel Location

Behind the hotel is Ave. Portal d'Angel, one of Barcelona's best shopping streets. It also conveniently leads you past the Dalí museum and to the Cathedral.
