            Very central and convenient when you have travelled a very long way. Very close to grocery store to buy last minute items.Perfect location

          • Older travelers

            Location was great, 5 Min walk into town. Room was big and had a sofa which makes a great difference, so many motels have nowhere to sit apart from the bed. The owner/manager was very polite and friendly and upgraded us to a premier room, which was a lovely gesture.

            The room was cold on arrival and took some time to work out how to work the heater, but once this was resolved was very toasty until you opened the bathroom door, the room obviously needs insulation, but this wouldn't stop me from visiting again.

            definitely good location. I was living there for taupo half marathon, just walked 5 minutes from my bedroom to the start line. actually you can walk to most avenues in taupo within 10 minutes from barcelona motel. the owner is a nice guy and gave us free upgrade to the premium room. the room is spacious and we were offered an extra heater when I mentioned chilly weather in taupo. but it was proved unnecessary. the heater in room is already warm enough.

            Good value for money, appreciated the morning paper

            Caused an inconvenience to the Barcelona Hotel by losing the room key. The hotel staff were very helpful, and were very understanding with the loss of the room key.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            It had everything we neeed, was warm and freindly and inexpensive

            Rooms was a little stale smelling but nothing really bad

          • Family with children
            7.0

            The owner was very friendly and the motel was in a good location - very close to supermarkets and town centre.

            We stayed in the two storey family apartment and since we stayed there during winter it was a bit cold as it only had one heater downstairs. It could have done with a better heater or maybe a heater upstairs. Also, although the internet was free (which was great) it was intermittent.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Only one night so price was the main reason for booking

            Only a small old 3 bar heater to heat the rooms! This was not really adequate. The room was cold and drafty. The shower whilst very hot and powerful. The window was partly inside the actual shower area so privacy was an issue, especially at night as the windows only had obscure glass!!

          • Single
            5.0

            Great location right in town. Pleasant staff.

            Very old decor (circa. 1960s). Bed looked very old and used. Cold. Wi-fi apparently included but no signal to my room (far rooms currently not covered).

          • Couple
            6.2

            Easy to get to the town center.

            Better to improve the cleaning job.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The price was reasonable and the facilities were clean, tidy and convenient.

            Unfortunately the shower has no pressure, which I recommend they remedy especially before the cooler months!

          • Family with children
            7.4

            the room had everything we needed and the small recreation area with trampoline was fun for the kids.

            Though it,s a short walk to the CBD it,s quite far to the lake.
