Area description
This stylish, modern 4-star hotel has a prime location in one of Barcelona's most important business centres, near the Barcelona Sants train station and the Montjuic exhibition centre. It's very close to the city's historic centre, the hotel's convenient location means it has good access to Barcelona's fast, efficient public transport network, as well as the city's major roads.

Two kilometres away you will find the cultural centre, based around La Rambla and Plaza Catalunya, where Modernism meets Gothic and runs down to the coast.

Good Location

Very Good Location, I used this hotel last night I was in Spain closer to the airport and city centre. However you can hear very well the people next to your room. The beds are a bit hard. Old TV with not listed right channels. I had nice dinner, very nice staff, veggie pizza it was ok. Goat cheese salad amazing. Overall its a good hotel.

Prison walls

This hotel looks great from the lobby, however our double room looked more like a prison cell than a 4 star hotel. The beds were tiny, (I'm 157 cm) they were uncomfortable and the walls and door frames were dirty and beat up. Less than impressed with this hotel. Much more like a hostel with a 4 star hotel price.

Good location, but defo not 4 star

Nice hotel with ideal location for Tourist Bus and main train station, but upgrade to Executive was not great! Breakfast was hard work with not much fresh food out in the morning, and the pool area looked tired. Views from our executive room was not great, and you can hear traffic despite windows being closed. Great base from which to explore Barcelona, but there's not much within walking distance other than a couple of restaurants and a large shopping mall.

The hotel is really nice and will definitely use again the staff are really friendly and the rooms are kept clean and tidy. excellent views on the roof but swimming pool is a bit on the small side. Apart from that I do recommend this hotel.

Great Hotel

Great value for the price. Yes, there may not be many places around the hotel, but you are close to the main train station and to two subway lines that will place you anywhere in the city within minutes. Rooms as spacious as they get in this city and clean. Cost of food (breakfast) was very reasonable with a very aboundant breakfast buffet to suit any European or American traveller.

A Great Hotel

This is our second visit to this hotel. The view from the 9tgh floor is great, the rooftop terrace and swimming pool are great, the rooms are air-conditioned and very comfortable and they are efficiently cleaned daily. The staff are especially marvellous, courteous, kind and friendly and the prices are very reasonable. It is very close to a main station, Sants Estacio, and the metro, and is only a short walk to the Magic Fountains and other well-known tourist sites. I would recommend it to anyone.

Take a 10-trip metro ticket for 9.8 euros - you can go anywhere in Barcelona, even to the airport, on less than 1 euro per journey.

Sants location Expo

lovely hotel - pool is smaller than photos make out but its fine for getting a cool dip after a catching a few rays on the top deck location wise its brilliant for the main station ( and underground) - you can see it straight out of the station ;) theres also another underground within a couple of mins walk ( taragonna ) close to the montjuc park fountains ( a must see on a summer evening ) and a tower shaped shopping centre with nice restaurants on top - but not much else - however the good underground links make it accessible to the rest of the city :)
