Near Barcelona's Port
Hotel Acta Millenni is on the northern border of Poble Sec, a safe and mostly residential area near Barcelona's Port that's part of the Sants-Montjuic district. The proximity to Palau de Congressos convention center makes it convenient for business travelers, and it's located right off of the neighborhood's main drag, Paral.lel, where a few small, local restaurants can be found. Las Ramblas, Barcelona's most popular thoroughfare, lined with restaurants, bars, and shops, is within walking distance.
Though the Hotel Acta Millenni features a charming facade that dates back to 1927, its stale interiors are definitely in need of an update. Most guest rooms are spacious and have lovely hardwood floors, but the furnishings look generic and a tad cheap. Noise can also be an issue, with some guests complaining of thin walls and a lack of soundproofing. Large bathrooms are a plus, especially the ones in the suites that offer Jacuzzi tubs. Other high points include the free Wi-Fi, great portside location, and pretty rooftop deck with lounge chairs, a small Jacuzzi, and city views. Those visitors seeking stylish surroundings, however, should probably look elsewhere.
