This hotel from pictures looks ok. But maybe its winter. So on my 2nd night as i was in the office late o decided to try and have a meal on hotel. It was 9pm ish bit there was bobody eating and i couldnt find someone to explain how i could order food. So i gave up. Nighr 3 i wanted to have a drink so i went to bar. At 12 midnight it was closed. That was fine i had some beers. I was watching tv football in silence outsidr so no sound. Staff came along and said i have to turn off. Why because it late! I nit sure i have a polite response. The sound is off why do you have to turn off. To be honest i wouldnt stay here agaon if it was free

The hotel lived up to all our expectations. The room was very good, and the backyard outdoor area with the pool was a quiet oasis in the city. The restaurant was pricy, but good - excellent breakfast! The beach is within walking distance, and there is a bus stop almost right outside the hotel - which is good, since there is no subway nearby (10 minutes walk away).

The hotel is nicely located 5 inutes away from the beach, it is very nice to walk. You also have a bus stop right in front of the hotel which takes you quickly to the city. Unfortunately our room was located on the secon floor and we didn't had a very nice view, also our room was located next to the housekeeping office which was very noisy especially in the morning. The room was allover clean but very dusty under the bed and even after the housekeeping cleaned it. So I assume they didn't wipe or vacuum clean. All in one it was ok to stay there to sleep but I would't choose it again.

The room size is typical to the EU size, small in comparison to the US size. My only major complaint is the black out shade seemed to be missing part of it's width. I had to notify the front desk two days to get it fixed, else the sun came in early and I feared the others could see me. In addition, the person who had the room next to me was extremely loud and could here every phone call it seemed. Other than those issues, which was fixed; the front bar made the best sangria for us and we also appetizer. We walked every day to the port / beach and back and it is a quick walk and seemed very safe. Would stay here again, especially for the price.

nice, big family room! We did not receive the bottle of cava but breakfast was super! Too bad the yacuzzi was out of order :( Free parking and friendly people!! love the fact that the hotel is in walking distance of the beach!

Registration process was lengthy and painful, three rude employees demanded to photocopy my sons passports (even my 6 year old son), finally when we arrived to our rooms we found out the hotel was dirty, the carpets stained, rust everywhere and instead of soap in the shower this people put antibacterial foam (like the one you use on the restrooms at the mall), so we ended up showering with hand foam, go figure. Finally the weather was kind of warm, like 72 and the A/C was not working, instead of cooling they had the heat turned on so it was basically a little hell, called them and they told me that they could not turn the cool system on because it was winter season, amazing

The hotel,was very clean and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast at the hotel was exceptional. Very close to the beach and the entire area was always clean and felt like a safe place to be......

clogged sink ,heater out of order, towells clean but very harsh, had to change the first room because the lock wa not oerational no good reception and no information given regarding the area or recommendation

The hotel was very clean and fresh. The room had everything we required. Even a kettle to make tea. The restaurant in the hotel is very good value and the food is excellent. The breakfast on offer is continental and English. There was only meat and no seafood tho. The hotel is situated very close to the beach. A couple of minutes walk. the beach is sandy and would be considered excellent in the UK. It was also clean. There are many seafood restaurants along the beach towards the marina and where the tour bus stop is. The land side of the hotel looks a little industrial but is very safe to walk in towards the town centre. We did walk to the Sagrada familia from the hotel. Just look for the Gurkin and it's that way. About 35mins walk from the hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is situated close to the beach and is a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro staition. Lots of cafe's and restaurants in easy walking distance. Great location from which to explore Barcelona. Modern, clean, well appointed rooms. Friendly & helpful staff. A lovely outdoor pool and bar area. Breakfast is good but a bit pricey. Would definitely return to this hotel.
