Very nice place and location is great Happy with everything

Really nice place to stay, clean and quiet! Nice view from the hotel rooftop

I loved everything, the staff, the facility, the rooms were clean and spacious. The bar area was clean and good drinks. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely go back

I've been to Barcelona many times and this was by far the best overall hotel experience in the city. The location was incredible, close to everything without being in the over crowded section of Las Ramblas or Gracia. The hotel has the best staff (Judy at breakfast and Alex at reception were especially welcoming) and the rooms are modern, quiet and spacious. The rooftop pool is small but it spreads over to a nice lounge area with amazing views. Do not miss breakfast! It is very complete and full of little surprises. The only amenity I missed was a gym. Except for that I thought everything was perfect.

Not extremely close to city center but not a far walk out. Right off the arc de triomf station. Decent amenities and nice rooftop area to hang out.

Excellent location to visit barcelona all services like metro station and bus stops near to the hotel. The hotel feels and looks brand new. Will recomend

Great service. Great shower. Breakfast was wonderful

It was a perfect stay in Barcelona. Everything is within easy walk from the hotel. If walking is not your thing, then there is a subway station about 5 minutes away which makes it easy to get around the city.

A very trendy boutique hotel that is convenient to a lot of the sites in the Gothic Quarter. It's about a 15 minute walk from Placa de Catalunya or about a 5 minute walk to the Arc de Triomf metro stations. Check-in was quick and they provided us with welcome waters. Other guests were offered beer/wine, so I'm not sure why we weren't offered the same, but we appreciated the waters. The room size was sufficient for our needs but is a very open concept that left little room for storing or hanging clothes. It worked for us, but I imagine some other guests may have an issue with this configuration. There are plenty of outlets, a great shower, and the bluetooth speaker in the room is a great touch. Wifi was fast and provided a strong signal throughout the hotel. Breakfast was FANTASTIC and included with the room. They offered events every night centered around different beverages, but we didn't partake in any of these. Overall a great hotel that I would stay in again if we return to Barcelona.

Staff were great and room was funky. Don’t think this ultra modern look will age that well but who knows. All the little things in the hotel were wel thought out and much appreciated like left luggage lockers.

It was a lovely experience. Only wish it had an a la carte restayrant for breakfast within the hotel.

Extremely clean and lots of little extras like beer tasting (free) and similar. The rooms are on the small side as far as storage is concerned, but the use of space is very good and well planned. They offer a pillow menu which seems unheard of at this hotel level! The breakfast ($10) is a great deal. It is continintal with 2-3 hot items and a variety of juices and coffees. The intangible is the location which is GREAT!! This was our second trip to Barcelona but first at this hotel. We would love to stay here again.

If you are like us, and a mile or two walk is what you do daily, this hotel is so perfectly position to get on foot to almost all top sights, from Sagrada Familia to Gothic Quarter. It’s 100 Meyers from the Arch metro station and there are multiple buses stopping here. The hotel has a super nice restaurant and there is a highly rated sushi place open till midnight a few doors down. Super clean, modern rooms and the most helpful staff always happy to help with directions and recommendations. A true gem.
