    Very good boutique hotel, elegantly designed and well-situated on the Gran Via (next door to the Palace Hotel). Stay in one of the Egyptian rooms, preferably Rm. 101, which has 10 foot ceilings and its own private terrace behind a row of hedges. Otherwise, rooms are small. Staff is excellent, well-trained and very accommodating. Gym is just a stationary bike, an elliptical and some dumbbells. If sun is out, run to the beach and back instead (~6K). Rooftop pool and deck are also pretty small.

    Common areas are very nice. Our Panama room was waay too small for the price we paid. The bathroom, while attractive, had no place for our toiletry bags etc. Using the shower resulted in entire floor being wet. Lunch on patio was nice, not exceptional. Staff very friendly. Hotel entry is small and many taxi drivers unfamiliar with it. Main objection was high price for very small room.

    My bf gave me a choice of places to stay in Barcelona and I chose the Cotton House because it seems to be close to everything, and it has high marks on its reviews. I think that if I had it all over again, for the money we paid, I would've chosen to stay elsewhere. First, when we were getting off the taxi, I asked the receptionist for somebody to help with our bags. I was expecting a bellboy to help with the bags, but she ended up leaving her post to carry our bags, which I thought was weird. After being checked in, we were given a room, probably the size of my closet. We literally did not even have space to open our luggage completely and unpack; the shower and the toilet shared a space, and didn't even have a wall between them. I mean, me and my bf both thought that this is unacceptable for a 5 star hotel. Being a Marriott Platinum elite status, he immediately complained and demanded to be switched to another room; supposedly, there was a last minute cancellation so they were able to switch us. When we arrived to our second room, it was a lot better with a bathroom and a bathtub, but it still wasn't great. For the money we are spending to stay here, I don't believe that it was worth it at all. Also, I am a little appalled at the fact that a 5 star luxury hotel would even have rooms like our first room. The hotel itself is beautiful, and has a lot of history. The staff are all young, like they just got out of high school. The people working in the concierge were all very helpful. The breakfast buffet had a huge selection to choose from, except they charge extra for hot breakfast. I think that for the money, I would've stayed at the Palace, or elsewhere.

    We stayed on the 6th floor overlooking a courtyard and above the restaurant. This is a quiet floor and we had a nice balcony. The pool is located on the 6th floor as well, so not far away. Bed was very comfortable and had nice pillows. Room was not large, but big enough. I really liked the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.The restaurant Batur was excellent for breakfast and dinner. The neighborhood is more residential and we found it a nice area to be in. I would definitely stay here again.

    An incredible property with a great location! Among many positive hotel highlights, the breakfast must get special mention. The quality and variety of the wonderful food and drink was amazing. Service was incredible. Only hotel drawback we observed was the tiny workout room.

    The Cotton House Hotel is situated where a Textile Mill once stood. The hotel is done in a period of this mill and is warm, charming, beautiful and inviting. The staff was excellent from the doorman, front reception, concerige, restaurant, back to the reception for checkout. The hotel decor is a museum in itself and you can even take a tour of the property. In each sleeping room there is a book of fabrics where you can have a tailor come to your room to take you sizes for a custom shirt and fabric. A must for old world charm.

    Cotton House Hotel is in central Barcelona and walking distance to most of the sights. A beautiful and comfortable hotel which used to be the old cotton house. We were upgraded to a lovely room with a large balcony which was fun for relaxing with wine and cheese. The breakfast was complimentary since I am a gold member and included a wide variety of items and freshly squeezed green juices which was a treat. Recommendations--for a 5 star hotel the bath amenities (shower gel etc could have been higher quality with a more neutral scent). Shower and robes and towels were super nice.

    Lovely property, helpful staff, and excellent central location. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and clean with an old world charm and modern amenities. Unfortunately we didn't even realize they have a rooftop pool until check out! How did we miss that?

    The Cotton House exceeded our expectations as one of the better small elegant properties we have ever stayed at. We stayed in the Madras room which had such a beautiful view as well an air of simple elegance. The linens fresh, the towels huge and plush ( we actually purchased a set).... Staff is extremely attentive from the moment you enter until you leave. Concierge...outstanding and helpful in making reservations, canceling reservations... great recommendations as well... The restaurant we only ate for breakfast but the offerings of fresh fruit to traditional egg dishes was savory.... The rooftop pool has a wonderful view of the main street and Sagrada Familia in the distance.... Yes it is expensive but if you are looking for a small quiet gem in a very peaceful neighborhood... This is it!

    Upgraded to the Egyptian Room which was beautiful and on the same level as the concierge and restaurant which was exquisitely furnished. Had good experience with the check in and despite our room not being ready were treated to a coupe of champagne and a tour of the hotel We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel but due to impending rain missed out eating on their beautiful terrace. Nevertheless both meals were very good. Location is just perfect for what you need to do in Barcelona, i.e., we were able to walk to all the Gaudi buildings and a long but lovely walk to the beach area Perhaps too fussy but I did not give it 5 stars as we came back from dinner to find our room had not been made up / had a turndown service - possibly a bit harsh but it was such a lovely stay you just expected them to get it all right. Would thoroughly recommend and would certainly be back

    I took too long to write this review but we had a great check-in with (Miguel?). We came early and understandably our room was not ready. He gave us a welcome drink, which was above and beyond seeing we came before check-in time. I guess other people's crankiness resulted in our benefit. I love Autograph Collection hotels because they are essentially independent hotels that have a lot of charm. You can look up the history but I can say they did a great job with the renovation. My only complaint is the maintenance of the bathroom and cleanliness. The sink was not sealed properly so we had water running down on the floor, annoying. Shower needed to be cleaned and sealed as mold was found in exposed crevices. The white leather chair by the desk is absolutely beautiful but it had some food stuck to it. These are all easy fixes that I'm sure/HOPE they have solved by not. If not, please fix these as this is such a beautiful hotel that it would be a shame to see it run down so quickly!

    I stayed at the Cotton House Hotel with my husband and two teenage sons for five nights while on vacation in Barcelona in August. The hotel far exceeded our expectations! The rooms and facilities are extremely clean and well maintained! We enjoyed relaxing and swimming in the rooftop pool several evenings after returning from excursions in the city. The breakfast buffet is expansive with delicious foods to satisfy all tastes! We had dinner one evening in the hotel restaurant which has a lovely outdoor patio that is a wonderful spot to enjoy some delicious tapas! The staff all spoke English and were extremely friendly and helpful! We all felt very welcome throughout our stay. I highly recommend this gem of a hotel and hope to return myself!

    My husband and I just had a wonderful three days in one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed in. The Cotton House Hotel! We loved our suite with a small private courtyard! The staff are all young gorgeous men and ladies who look like Moreland are eager to help! The biggest surprise was the restaurant where we had a delightful breakfast, lunch and dinner! They really go the extra mile in a lovely tropical location! You will love it!

    The Cotton House Hotel is gorgeous. It is a former mansion with many original features. Just beautiful. We are high level Marriott rewards and actually booked the 2 night stay with points. Our arrival was early, but Marriott rewards allows for early check in. Since there are only 80 something rooms and they were completely booked, we were told our rooms (traveling with another couple) were not ready. That was fine. They held our luggage and off we went. We came back after 1pm and were still told our rooms were not ready. Our traveling companions were informed at 2:30 that their room was available. At 3pm (check in time), we approached the front desk again. We were told the room designated for us was still not ready. At that point, we were told that another room (a double upgrade) was available and was given to us. The room was a little larger and a very nice bathroom, but couldn't see the double upgrade. The included breakfast buffet was lovely. All of the staff and conceirge tried to be helpful, but many seemed as they were in training and thus uninformed. I loved the hotel and surroundings; my husband was not as impressed. When we checked out, we had to pay additional euros that we thought were taxes. We later learned we were charged for the "double upgrade" since we were using points for the 2 nights. We will be discussing this with Marriott as we were never told there would an additional cost for the room that was available at check in. We thought it was their concession for not having a room for us even when the check in time arrived. Loved the location.

    Public spaces are beautiful - I really like the library on the second floor. Definitely would stay here again. Pros: - Quiet rooms - Comfortable bed with wonderful linens and pillows - Big bath towels - Balcony to sit out on/able to get fresh air in the room - In room safe Cons: - No walk-in shower - instead a deep tub which is not easy to get in and out of when your feet are wet - Breakfast was included but they needed to have some hard boiled eggs on the buffet instead of charging €5

    I first want to apologize for taking a month to post my review....the staff deserved praise immediately. One of the first hotels I have stayed at in awhile were management and the staff understand superior exceptional service and hospitality. Cudos to management for their training and attention to detail. I had the pleasure of a six night stay using my Marriott points...the property reminded me more of a Ritz Carlton except the staff was much warmer and down to earth. In many ways, the staff shaped my positive experience of Barcelona. To my point, I ate dinner two nights in the hotel restaurant at 8pm at the hour the Spanish say is the time to eat with the wait staff. We enjoyed our time talking and getting to know the staff that we wish we could see them again. Special shout outs to hostess Cristina and wait staff Nuri &Judith. The restaurant also hosts the breakfast/buffet which is exceptional and a tremendous value for everything offered. The front desk is extremely well staffed and offers exceptional security and cool drinks for the weary traveler. The hotel hires many interns who are also exceptional. I was totally impressed by the concierege Madison at Gossipyum. I don't think this is luck that management is hiring and training properly. My wife and I also loved the uniforms of the staff. The women wore an outfit that look like a designer nun outfit which was accessorized with bright lipstick and cool shoes. It reminded of us of a Robert Palmer video from decades past. Not that I use the gym much on vacation after walking miles everyday; however, the gym is a little small for a business traveler. Loved the great air conditioning in the room which allowed us to cool off after walking in the heat. The only thing I would have changed was the fact the housekeeping cart was always located outside my door when I entered the hallway. I regret that I have not visited Spain earlier in my life. I can't imagine a better place to visit than the Cottonhouse, especially for American and foreign tourists.

    The hotel itself is a charming one of kind hotel near many of Barcelona's attractions but far enough removed that quiet time is possible. The outside sitting area and bar is lovely and the breakfast area is adequate. I can't give this a higher evaluation because the inexperienced staff were nice but inept. As a Marriott rewards member I am accustomed to certain privileges such as early check in. We arrived in the morning after a long flight and not only could we not get a room early, but it was not even ready at 3:00pm, the regular check in time. We were told that we were given an upgraded room because of the delay. The room was adequate but I not only can't figure out what made it an upgraded room, I am even more concerned about what my original room would have been like. I'd consider staying here again, and I will say that the manager reached out to me after I wrote to him about my experience, but I'd also look into other comparable hotels for comparison on my ex visit to Barcelona.

    We stayed here after a cruise. My daughter (15) selected the hotel over the Hotel Arts and the Renaissance based the pictures on the website and the central location. Quite honestly, the pictures on the website do not do this hotel justice. It is gorgeous. We booked an Egyptian room which comes with a king bed and a sofa bed. Upon arrival, check in went smoothly but we had to wait a few minutes until a staff member could take us to our room. Since we were greeted with glass of cava, this was a pleasant wait. Our Egyptian room overlooked the courtyard on the second floor (My daughter loved going up and down the spiral staircase). I was concerned about noised from the restaurant below but it was never a problem. The room is small compared to US standard but easily held all our luggage and clothes for the three days we were there. There is a mini-bar in the room, but you can use it as a fridge for your own beverages even without taking items out. The room comes with Nespresso machine and we had brought our own capsules but there is a Nespresso boutique within walking distance if you need to buy your own. There are also several grocery stores near by to purchase water, beer, wine, and snacks. We did not get a chance to eat in the restaurant but I agree with others that the breakfast buffet is outstanding. My daughter's personal favorite was the red velvet cupcakes but I loved the simple iberico ham sandwiches they served. The pool on the top floor looks small but fulfills its function and was never crowded. We used the concierge to book the Picasso Museum and the Sagrada Familia. He was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, as was all the staff during our visit. We only have three small issues: the hotel has a book of tours you can book (and we definitely would have done one or two of them) but we didn't discover the book until late the second day (it wasn't on the desk but hidden on the night stand); we always had to request three sets of towels each day no matter how many notes we left for housekeeping; and the maid never converted the sofa bed back to the sofa during the day. As a bed it takes up a lot of the room and makes getting to the small balcony and sitting at the desk difficult. Just small things that did not spoil our stay and we would definitely stay here again.

    I went with my husband for our anniversary and had a wonderful time there. Had a mixed experience, first with bad room, rude staff then to nice balcony room, polite staff after escalation (sigh!). Anyways, the entire stay was made comfortable with nice breakfast. We were given a nice balcony facing room, though the rooms are very small. The pool was one the same floor as ours and it was in open, so really nice on hot sunny day. Breakfast area is great place to sit.

    Loved this Autograph. Short walk to Las Ramblas and 'medieval' sector, 10-20 minute walk to main city park and spectacular Barcelona beaches. As with many Autographs this is a re purposed building - Cotton Exchange in the 1800s. Surrounded by some 4-5 story apartments and other moderate sized hotels. Rooms large enough, terrific beds. Breakfast buffet was excellent, outdoor restaurant in summer was very good. Great staff, very accommodating, knowledgeable. Rooftop had great views and the tiniest pool!
