Trendy Hotel, Great Service, In the Ghetto

For those of you hoping to find an amazing hotel in an amazing neighborhood, this one fits the bill. However, "amazing neighborhood" is in the eye of the beholder. Great ethnic food all around this place, but it's a little grimey and does not feel as safe as up by La Sagrada Famila and the north end of Las Ramblas. We liked everything about this place, expect for the two twin beds that were pushed together. Make sure to book or request a king/queen size bed #there are only a few available#. The staff is great, and super friend.

Highly recommendable

Great all around! The neighborhood is close enough to the action that you didn't have to walk too far to get to it all. Would stay here again for the value. Also the bartender Katerina is a wonderful joy on the top floor hotel bar.

Anniversary trip

Fantastico!! Except for the ladies of the night endemic to this up and coming area, great food and easy metro access. Super rooftop deck but don't be fooled by pool- it is more of a shallow wishing well that is refreshing but smaller than most hotel hot tubs.

When the wait is long for outdoor restaurants on las ramblas, this area is less congested, cheaper, and more relaxing.

Lovely!

This was in the best situation for us, 7 minutes to Las Ramblas and about 7-10 down to the harbour. The room was very clean and the shower gels/ shampoos were all very generous . (You don't need to take a toothbrush or a razor!) The staff were friendly and helpful. We didn't eat here but the food did look nice. The pool and seating area with the panaric views was breathtaking! The pool is small but a choice of that or nothing...... I would have the dipping pool. The music up there was great too. My only negative was a personal dislike, toilet should be a totally separate room. But this would not put me off booking again. This is the third time we've been to Barcelona and this was by far the best hotel!

A different place to stay.

The staff are excellent. Very helpfull. We had a compact mirror broken in the luggage Which left glass shards in the case. The room maid brought a vacuum cleaner to clear the case of the tiny pieces. The breakfast though overly expensive is comprehensive and very good with a nicely arranged buffet style selection. The rooms are very functional but the open bathroom in the room layout wont apeal to many. The pink lighting on the bed headboard gave it a cheap bordello feel.

Quirky and central

Unusual hotel, well situated near La Ramblas. Really enjoyed the roof top view over the city, where you can chill out with a drink from the bar.

Great location

Just a short walk from La Rambla this hotel is a perfect destination for visitors with a fabulous roof top terrace with views over Barcelona. Our visit was to see the Nou Camp and it was a just short walk to an underground station that took you directly there.

Nothing to write home about it

My stay at this hotel was ok overall. The room was small but I guess it's typical for Barcelona, or Europe for that matter; my biggest issue was that they turn the AC off during the day even if you leave the access card on the slot indicating that this is what one wants. Location was good as it was close to Las Ramblas but unfortunately too close to all the "night ladies" activities. I think for the price paid; I would stay there again
