An excellent hotel conveniently located close to the main tourist facilities, including the castle, harbour and beaches. Well worth a visit.

Great service, good location, recommended!

Would recommend Tue, Dec 2, 2014
We originally checked into a twin room with no outside window. After speaking to reception we were moved the following day to a lovely double room with windows and staff were faultless. However this should have been flagged to us prior to booking - and rooms with no windows should be cheaper! The second room we had was lovely. Breakfasts were tasty with a good range of hot and cold food - and it went on until 11am which was appreciated. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Las Ramblas and the Marina which is fine. And reception were very useful in helping us book tickets to various things. I would come back here!

dreary room

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 14, 2014
A lovely hotel with excellent staff in a good location BUT although the room was large anc beautifully furnished in a modern style,we would not stay there again because of the lack of light. There were three windows but they were all painted over and curtained over because the outlook was not great.On top of that the artificial lighting still caused the room to be dark all the time. If this could be rectified we would give the hotel 5 stars.

Excelent place

Would recommend Thu, Oct 9, 2014
We where in this hotel six nights, the people there are great, welcoming and fun, some of them would like to take them home, my wife doesn't agree...... Seriously, is the place we can come back, elegantly design, functional elegant place a round pleasure Not sure about the area, but there is a train practically at the door, and in minutes you can be anywhere The subway in barcelona, is clean, confortable and for sure, very quick, and especially easy to use David

Mixed experience

Would recommend Tue, Oct 7, 2014
Good roomy accommodation near metro but perhaps because it was October it seemed understaffed which led to limited semi buffet restuarant fare and bar staff doubling up as waiters. Room lights failed day2 and torrential rain caused leak in wardrobe. Offered another smaller room. Very clean with good breakfast and staff friendly and helpful when they had the resources ( e.g. sorry no coffee in lobby till 11.30 when staff finish upstairs) Tea making in room would have made a difference. Good free wifi, local eating places and great for transport links.

Money saver

T10 at just over 10 euros great for 10 trips on bus metro or tram (can share ticket) Metro Paral-lel just outside hotel

Great location,

Would recommend Wed, Sep 10, 2014
Had a great 3 nights at this hotel, only downside was the lack of view! Our room looked out onto a small courtyard but I suppose we can't all have sea views! The room itself was spotlessly clean with a lovely comfy bed & good bathroom. There was good choice for breakfast with a collection of cold meats, cheeses & fruit, hot dishes including scrambled egg & chorizo sausages, breads & pastries. The roof top pool & sun area was just big enough for nice hour in the sun with a couple of cold beers. The location is an ideal base to start from with the Port area & La Ramblas only a 10 min walk away, attractions further afield were within easy reach due to the Metro station right outside the door. Overall a very enjoyable short break which I would recommend to anyone.

Dining

Port Vell has a good selection of bars & restaurants with good views overlooking the sea.

Would recommend Mon, Jul 28, 2014
This a good place to stay and very conveniently located. Very friendly and helpful staff. Less than 5-minutes walk from La Rambla. There is one caveat though - not every room has a window that opens to sky, so please verify the kind of room you are getting before booking.
