Nice Hotel for Visitors

Would recommend Mon, Aug 3, 2015
We used this property for our first visit to Barcelona and really enjoyed staying here.. The location was easy to access both the Metro and buss system and also easy to head to airport. Plenty of nice eateries were nearby and one of the best in town for tapas. Clean, quiet property. We did upgrade to a courtyard room since the first was a bit closed quarters.

Good central location

Would recommend Wed, Mar 4, 2015
Very close to Las Ramblas and other attractions. We'd definitely return as the room was clean and quiet, and the service friendly.

Would recommend Sat, Aug 23, 2014
Clean, nice sized room. Pretty good location, walking distance to the metro to go wherever or a not too bad walk to La Rambla. Only complaint was hotel was I could hear other guests from my room.

Location is great, walking distance to all shopping and great restaurant. The room is big enough and have a big toilet. Price is reasonableness worth a stay.

Perfectly OK

Would not recommend Wed, Jun 4, 2014
Clean and modern, though the staff was a bit surly and didn't listen to our requests (nothing special, just things like an extra key). Location is great though.

Dark, Cramped Room with Poor Noise Insulation

Would not recommend Thu, May 22, 2014
Booked a two night stay . Pros: central location a few blocks from the Passeig de Gracia, good free wi-fi connection in the rooms. Cons: The room I had was dark and cramped. There was a window that looked out on an air shaft and, since I was on a lower floor, I never saw sunlight. The bed took up most of the space in the room; in fact, the bathroom -- which was well-equipped and modern -- was almost as large as the room itself. Noise insulation between rooms was poor as I could hear every word my neighbor said. I was only in Barcelona a little over a day essentially as a stopover and I have been to the city before so a bad hotel room wasn't a big deal but, if this were my first trip, this hotel room would have really depressed me. Given the number of other hotels in the city, I would not stay here again.

Quality is the best element here.

Would recommend Sun, Nov 25, 2012
Wonderful room service cuisine, excellent staff (fluent in English), and the room was very accommodating, albeit small. Pool area was luxurious and the breakfast and bar services were superb. I highly recommend!

Money saver

Aerobus to El Prat Airport is right in Placa de Catalunya (about a fifteen minute walk from the hotel). Use this service to get to the hotel and return to the airport. Only 5.75 euros! Most cost effective method.

Good location and value

Would recommend Sat, Nov 3, 2012
Basically good considering location and price. Room was a bit small and not in the best condition. Lobby was dated and smelled musty. This did not take away from good service, great location and alue

Nightlife hint

lots of restaurants and bars nearby
