4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Arrived at the hotel early, they had the room ready in 25 minutes, superb. The room was clean and tidy. All front desk staff fantastic to deal with and appreciated my attempts at Spanish. Breakfast more than adequate . Thoroughly recommend this hotel it is also convenient for las ramblas and sights

Stayed here Wednesday to Friday. Best location. Close to EVERYTHING staff were lovely and helpful. Room clean and spacious. Wish we had a front facing room though. Would highly recommend. Such a beautiful city.

We visited this hotel early February for a a very fair price (booked with flights through EasyJet) Usually I’d stay in hostels but this place had the same/similar price so thought why not. Everything was clean, room service daily. No gym or food but perfect for the basics.

Ideal location, near points of interest and restaurants. Just a two minute stroll to the Gothic Quarter. Obliging, helpful staff and decent breakfast. Do choose a room with a view. Ours had two balconies and amazing panorama.

We originally booked the Hotel Santa Marta, but on Check in we were brought around the corner to this hotel. ( presumably a sister hotel), so I guess the review is for here Modern hotel inside, has been done in an art deco style. Speedy check in, room quite large but the decor was dark and for me not enough light, as the room backed on to a dark courtyard. Room was clean, bed very comfy. Breakfast was very good. Hot and cold breakfast available. Plenty of room. Staff very good. Glad to help you. The hotel is in a good location. It’s close to the Gothic Quarter and the harbour ( with loads of restaurants ). Great rooftop bar above the museum at the harbour. Close to Beach, and about 15 mins walk to Las Ramblas. All in all this was a good hotel close to all you will need. Staff good. Breakfast good , room quite dark but not really a problem. I would stay here again

Beautiful hotel, ideally located betwixt the Gothic Quarter & the Berceloneta beach. Spotlessly clean, friendly professional staff & lovely well appointed & quiet room. This would be my first choice of hotel when I go back to Barcelona.

Great hotel in a fab location. We stayed for 4 nights, staff were very friendly and attentive. Rooms were lovely, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was ok - lots of choice although the good was not very hot. Overall a lovely hotel I would recommend and would definitely stay here again.

I've stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks, for business purposes and its only quality it's its location. A 4-stars hotel without the quality it should come with. At arrival, one is asked for an upfront payment of the whole stay without a proof of payment if not specifically requested. In my first week I didn't ask for one and the invoice I've received at check-out did not match the value I had payed upfront. Thus, I was told I should have requested a proof of payment at check-in, which I did in my 2nd week. It happens the employee working that evening was new and did not know how to do it and told me to request it the day after. Meaning, apart from the card payment I had no proof of payment. Cleaning wasn't great, there was a lot of dust on the bedside tables. There is no room service but a list of menus from restaurants which will deliver to your room - result: it's more expensive and takes longer. Facilities are too basic, apart from not having a gym, which might be comprehensible, there is no differentiation between shampoo and shower gel (which even 3-stars hotels do), and not surprisingly, there is no body lotion. These may seem small details but make all the difference for regular guests.

20 mins from airport🚕 ✈️straight to hotel just off the bottom of La Rambla, beach and Marina ⛵️🛳end. Beautiful old building hotel updated to boutique style, clean, fresh and modern with great showers. Did room only as food in Barcelona is worth going out and eating-Wall to wall Tapas that can be eaten 24/7🍤🍻Found the hotel to be central for most visitors, not close to Nou Camp ⚽️if your a football fan but that's a whole day trip anyway which is on outskirts of city. Would definately recommend and re-book this hotel. Had a great stay, great location and great prices🇪🇸👊🏽

When travelling, the star rating system changes from country to country. Not all 4 star hotels are created equally. As a North American citizen, I can comfortably say that this is a TRUE 4 star hotel. Pros: Literally next door to Estación Franca, a big train station that allows quick transit to the airport. Close to subway, bus, tland taxi stand as well. Lovely location, close to the beach, restaurants, bars, and other sights. Room was spotless. Very clean, big and bright. Comfy bed with clean sheets. Bathroom is excellent and spacious. Shower had good water pressure, hot and cold settings, and included complementary soap and bath wash. All in all, a lovely hotel room and worth every penny I paid. Staff were extremely friendly and courteous, allowed me to store my bags after checkout so I could walk around and take in the city for a bit longer before catching my flight. Cons: None. I truly tried to find a fault but this place has no negatives that I could see. Extras: 2 elevators is nice to have. Cleaning staff were great. Nice mini fridge and safe in the room. Good decorating, lots of lights and plugs all over. Would gladly return.
