Great city break

Would recommend Sat, Jan 30, 2016
Excellent base from which to explore the city which had so much to see and do, much of which could be achieved on foot. Staff all very friendly, but would have appreciated being told could have had a kettle for our room if had asked at start of holiday NOT when was checking out !! Locals genuinely keen to help if you looked lost, although cautious as to who we consulted due to reports of 'distraction' techniques. Weather, which was excellent, affected our choices of places to explore, so limited experience of museums but would certainly have visited if had been wet. Sagrada Familia a must - prebooking worth it as avoid the queues. Cathedral also worth a visit, and escalator up tower worth it for the views. Tourist bus rides worth it for orientation, especially red route. All in all a great break away from the English weather.

Would recommend Sat, Jan 30, 2016
Great place from which to explore the city, most of which could be achieved on foot. Would have been nice to know could have borrowed a kettle for our room at the start of our stay - found out on our last evening ! Staff all very friendly and helpful, especially barman. Rooms whilst comfortable were very warm and air conditioning not very effective. Good selection at breakfast buffet, but 'hot' water not hot enough to make a good cup of tea.

Couple stay

Would recommend Wed, Jun 3, 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We stayed in room 717 at the back of the hotel. It was quiet, AC was in working order. We loved the music/radio option in the room/bathroom. Spotless room & bathroom with a powerful shower head/ average bath tub and bedee. The pool was a little disappointing 1m depth only. Nice rooftop views. We didn't eat at the hotel loads of options nearby. Would recommend.

60th birthday trip with friends

Would recommend Tue, Apr 21, 2015
great location. for las rambla, tour buses, the harbour, handy little shop next door. for wine/nibbles etc for your room if needed. fabulous roof top relaxing area, with deck chairs, offering a fantastic view of the city. complete with a bar, although the service was always with a smile, took forever for them to bring your drinks. large rooms, excellant bathroom, big wardrobe space, very comfy beds. only complaint, only one large mirror in the bathroom, no mirrors in the bedroom living space. no tea making facilities in the room, but we were ok as we took a travel kettle. they do provide a brekfast for 15 euros. and you can get a evening meal. there as well. wasnt too happy with the meal., asked for steak well done, and ended up blood red. but they did happily replace it. having said that wonderful salad bar everything in the hotel was spotless, and the door and desk staff were very pleasant and helpful
