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.

Excellent Staff

The staff went out of their way to help. The location is right across from the train station and need a taxi to the Old town area. But the service was excellent.

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.

taxis are expensive so being close to the train station was perfect, but it's close enough to walk to some places too.

Excellent hotel and location!

A great place to stay if you have a flight the next day or want to be close to Sants Estacion or the Metro. The area is very lively for commuting and close to a supermercado and various restaurants. Staff was great and very friendly.

a lovely final evening in barcelona

My fiance and I spent one night here following our business/vacation 3-day stay in downtown Barcelona. We picked this location because it was so close to the train station, and we had an early train the following morning. While this hotel is not in the center of town, it's an easy cab ride there (only about 7 euros) if you desire to spend the evening there. The hotel is also close to a few cool spots (an old bull-fighting stadium converted into a multi-story mall, an evening fountain show). There aren't as many good restaurants near the hotel, but there are some places nearby. We ate downtown after taking a cab there. We quite enjoyed the view of the city through our room window on the 18th floor. The rooms were clean, nice, and fully equipped. There was a full room service menu with several late night items. The hotel has a bar that looked nice, but we didn't have a chance to try it out. There is also a spa on the bottom floor which you must pay to enjoy. There's a swimming pool included with the spa. The fitness center is free. Lastly, the hotel restaurant on the top floor looked quite nice. However, we didn't end up eating in the hotel as it seemed expensive- there's a cover charge just to sit in the restaurant. Overall, I was completely happy with this hotel, and I would unhesitatingly recommend it.
