Apathetic staff + old room disappointing vacation

They still use old style metal keys to give you a taste of what you get. The safe did not work. Told them on the morning of day 2 of 7 days. Maintenance came but couldn't fix it. Told front desk but they never sent a technician. They don't provide enough towels. Told front desk to tell house keeping but they never did. They have a computer to use but it doesn't print and it doesn't create .pdf's to send to the front desk to print. Lastly, the shower doesn't have a full glass door or curtain. A lot of water will get on the floor. The TV direction and channel was changed when we were out each day. Seems housekeeping needed something to do. DON'T STAY HERE!

excellent city break

pool on roof with amazing views of unseen Barcelona and well known Barcelona was brilliant after a day of treking around the tourist spots . We used local buses great value and easy to use . Rooms a little on small side and beds hard , and only 1 pillow ,with no view but we didn't spend that much time in them . Three lovely outside cafes nearby with excellant service and friendly staff . Hotel staff always polite and helpful , would stay here again .

Small room, small value

Location was very good. Staff was helpfull but I have a closet larger than the room. Bed was hard and stiff. Extreamly poor lighting in the room. Amenities were scarce. By US standards this hotel would rate as a 2 star. I managed hotels and resorts for 35 years and would not stay here again.

crowded

The staff at the hotel were very helpful & eager to assist you. The hotel room,however, leaves much to be desired. Although we wanted a non smoking room there seemed to be a lingering smoke smell. The room is poorly designed in that there was hardly any room for two people to walk without waiting for one person to clear the space to pass by. The bathroom is at the end of a longish corridor. The hotel is well located if your interest is to be near the Plaza Catalunya & The Rambla. Also, it is a relatively short drive from the Sants railway station or at least the taxi cost is low.

Needs Improvement

Although the staff were very helpful & the location was quite good the room we had was very tight in that there were many times when two people could not walk about until one person cleared the space. The beds were uncomfortable & the pillows would barely fit the definition of a pillow....not restful in the least.

Average Hotel

Staff very helpful, breakfast good selection. Room very small and window facing internal fire escape so probably wouldn't stay there again

very good location from which to travel

I am not used to European hotels so I thought the room was very small- I have only been to US and Canadian hotels. But others told me this is typical.

Well Located Hotel

Sunotel was good for a short mini break, centrally located to explore the cities vast sites! Rooms were clean, but a little basic and pretty small. Shame the jacuzzi was not working, and clearly hasn't been for some time!! Good value for money.
