We had to walk a long way from where we dropped off our hired car, and took a long time to locate this hotel, despite being here a few years ago. It changed names about 8 months ago. The signage is extremely tiny and only observable when you are very close to the hotel. The receptionist Nofel was knowledgeable and most helpful. Only a few rooms are operational at this moment due to renovations. For a one night stay, it was tolerable as we had to catch an early morning flight the next day. The room had very little space for your luggages. So do pack your overnight stuff in a little separate bag so you need not access your main luggages whilst in the room. The shower stall was tight n tiny but the water pressure was good. No door separated the wash basin n toilet n shower area from the sleeping area - all an open plan concept. The mattress was firm, good for back support. Breakfast was apparently ready from 4 am- we were too rushed to check it out. There seems to be a gym too - again no time to check it out.
If you have a very early flight out of BCN or a lengthy layover, the Air Rooms are a great choice. Clean, spacious enough (in Europe I have definitely paid more to stay in much smaller), well-appointed, comfortable rooms with showers, espresso, free beverages and wifi. The facility, which is located in Terminal 1 (the international terminal) Centro de Negocios, also has a fitness center and other amenities. It's easy to find -- just follow the signs for Air Rooms on the directional signs at the airport. Being able to nap and shower during a long trip, or prepare for an early departure without the stress of getting to the airport, is well worth the price, if it's in your budget.
We booked a day room at Air Rooms at Terminal 1 of Barcelona Airport for around 65 euros.This was for 10.00 to 16.00 The first challenge was finding it! Nightmare! The easiest way is to follow signs on the landside for the Madrid shuttle corridor and go right to the end of this corridor where you will see signs for the Business Centre in which the rooms are situated. I had booked online a twin room as we were not sleeping there but put on line 3 would be occupying the room. The receptionist was not particularly welcoming but insisted I pay a further 30 euros for the 3rd person. As they supply tea and coffee and soft drinks free in the room I asked if the room would be equipped for 3 persons. She said yes - it wasn't!! I rang reception and drinks were brought but no extra cups or towels -I gave up! This amounted to an extra 30 euros for a couple of soft drinks.
I could not get the free WiFi to work so back to reception but I got the same indifferent attitude which did not solve the problem.
Whilst the Centre was modern something wasn't right. The room was fine but many adjacent hotel rooms and meeting rooms had been stripped of furniture and some drying equipment installed in them. Again the gym appeared to be closed for work. Even the meeting areas were not busy.
Overall this was not good value for money. I am unlikely to ever use this again either overnight or as a day room.
great for a long layover. it is not really a full service hotel. moralize an airport business class lounge that has 8 rooms and a gym. once you check in you are kind of on your own. I booked the jr suite and was grateful as it is small and can imagine the regular rooms are tiny. there is no signage at all around the airport so finding it is a challenge. you have to look for the long hallway taking you to the Madrid Commuter flights then look for the business center signs. once you find it the space is very clean,quiet comfortable beds, good bath, since it is actually part of the airport the convenience is the biggest benefit- no need to get on any shuttles. depend ding on your layover you can book for shorter periods then a full day which is nice.
Following a cruise we'd been dropped at the airport at 10am for our 18.30hrs flights and rather than sit in a boring terminal, on uncomfortable seating, we decided to treat ourselves and book one of these rooms for day use. You can book these at a day rate from 10am to 6pm, so this was ideal for our needs.
We found these really easy in Terminal 1 if you keep following the Barcelona/Madrid route (down the slope). There is a café just outside but it didn't appear open, and you pass plenty of the usual airport eateries on route. Its a good walk.
The room consisted of a double bed, shower facilities (inc. towels) and a TV which had three English channels, which made the time go quicker. They provide bottles of water free, but any snacks eaten are charged extra. There is a coffee machine in the room but we didn't use this. We could have a sleep, shower and change ready for our evening flight.
This is a big area which seems to be taken up with mostly meeting rooms, and a big gym, none of which were being used. There are only 9 rooms so you need to book early. The shuttle bus to terminal 2 is literally around the corner, and provided easy transportation to our flight and we were there in minutes. If I was in this situation again of having a long layover at the airport I would definitely use these again. Well worth the money
