Good hotel, Amenities Incorrectly advertised

Hotel is excellent. Breakfast is very good and the view from the restaurant is breathtaking. Very close to a main train/subway station. Internet was advertised on this website as free but the hotel did not think so. Eventually they gave it to me as a courtesy but said the online agency is wrong. Do not expect a concierge service if you are a tourist. Location is central but not in the tourist area.

First trip to Spain

We enjoyed this hotel very much. The hotel sits right across from Sants station which has connections to anywhere in the city. We even caught the train to penedes for a wine tour from there. The staff was professional. My only concern is that the housekeeper came into our room when we had the do not disturb sign up. Besides that everything was great.

Great Location next to major train station hub

The location is perfect. It's so easy to get around Barcelona by train, and this hotel is right next to one of the major hubs. Getting to and from the airport is easy as well by taking the R2 train. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are comfortable, clean, and spacious for a European hotel. We were on the 16th floor and had fabulous unobstructed view of Barcelona. My wife and I would definitely stay here again.

Purchase the T-10 pass for the Barcelona Metro if you plan on taking the metro everywhere. It's 92 cents a fare compared to a regular fare of 2 Euros.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Short metro ride to La Ramblas (the main tourist street for shopping, dining, and night life) Becareful not to rely on the metro after 1130 pm on week nights. Use a taxi its worth the money to get back to the hotel safe and sound.

Great Experience

I really liked this hotel. The staff was really hepful and I can't complain about anything. The location was good and bad. There was nothing near by that I was interested in. However there was a great train and metro station across the street, so it was easy to get anywhere in town fast.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

use the metro to: Go to the Bocarilla on Las Ramblas Go to Sagrada Famillia Make reservation in advance to "Tickets" tapas bar" go to La Chamanerilla (sp), find someone that speaks English and have them order you as many different types of specialty sandwiches as you can eat. Warning this place is packed and there is no sign. Look for the crowd and don't go if you are afraid to throw a friendly elbow and are turned off by the paper wrapers on the floor.

Some Pretty View

The hotel is very nice and as a great view from the 16th floor and above. If you are lucky, you will get a room with the view to Sagrada Familia. The only small issue we faced was a broken dimer in our bathroom. Other than that, the room was amazing. Executive suite for a great price.
