I stayed one night at this stylish hotel. Location was good and right next to metro giving access to all tourist attractions in Barcelona. Food was good at the restuarant and service was great!
Pool on rooftop is too small so if you go there for
the pool, you will be disappointed as it fits 4-6 people at a time an it is more like a bathtub/jaccuzi.
Overall recommended for quality/service/location/ price
beautiful, clean, very close to METRO. Highly recommend this hotel. If your traveling with friends and have to share the room..the shower facilities aren't private since its all in GLASS..but still beautiful and modern
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
getting the metro pass is worth it..recommend purchasing the pass with 10 trips
