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.

Barcelona Vacation

It was a good hotel in a safe and convenient location. It was nice to have a pool, but the area was small and crowded. We rented a car for our stay, so it was nice the hotel had an overnight parking garage for an extra fee. The front desk staff was nice and helpful at times. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel is they did not provide hand soap in the bathroom.

Good Location for Price

Good location. A little over a block to a Starbucks where one can use their Wifi. Metro across from the Starbucks. Only ten minutes to Las Ramblas and the Boqueria Market. Several good places to eat only a block away in either direction and at reasonable prices. Having internet would have helped. Other hotel we stayed at before our cruise had free Wifi in room at about same price. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Try the Daily meal specials at the local restaurants close to the hotel. You get a first and second entree, plus dessert and a drink for under 10 euro.
