Recent guest reviews

We stayed at this place for 4 nights. First impression was great. The rooms were clean and modern and serviced everyday. The pool looked appealing except it was not heated and we did not have warm enough weather to enjoy it. Staff were reasonably helpful. One thing i will say is it is around 30-40 mins walk to the main area of Barcelona which we found difficult. However just a walk down the road is the beach and there is lots of restaurants on the water there. Breakfast was a large selection of different foods and good quality.

Stayed here for a weekend break. Nice clean hotel, large rooms, good selection at breakfast and nice restaurant. Noisy though. Bus stop just outside - take the H16 bus straight to Pl Catalunya at the top of La Ramblas about 25 minutes. 5 minute walk from the beach. Would recommend

Great hotel - friendly staff and the family room we had was perfectly sized for 3 of us. Great facilities which unfortunately we didn't get to use as we were out all day. Location wise you are a good 30 mins walk in to the gothic part of town. Pleasant enough walk to get there though. Short walk to the coast and the beautiful beach and promenade walk down to Barceloneta.

Stayed at this 4* hotel and it was very clean staff was very helpful and friendly. The hotel was very close to the beach where i think everyone in Barcelona goes running. It is 7 minutes walk from the nearest metro. I highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is in a good location - close to the beach and walking distance to the Port Olympic restaurants. The beds were comfortable and the room clean with good Wi-Fi and a kettle for tea and coffee. We stayed in Room 410 which overlooked the side-street Carrer d'Avila. Being on the fourth floor meant we were high enough to have a lovely view over to distant mountains and a glimpse of the sea. Other members in our group had rooms that overlooked the pool which was noisy one night or the main street which faced a large block of flats. Breakfast was included in our deal and was a good spread of cold/continental/cooked. We also ate dinner twice in the hotel restaurant and had a better meal there than in the other local restaurants that we visited. Small gripes: for a 4* hotel, it seemed odd that they didn't provide shampoo/conditioner in the rooms - you had to ask for it at Reception. Also, the soap was in a dispenser on the wall which entailed a march up and down the bath from the shower end - alright for me, but I was worried my 92-year-old mother would slip in the process so I went out and bought a bar of soap! But all in all, I would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Hotel is in a fantastic place. Only 10 minutes from the metro (dirt cheap). Rooms are kept clean ever day. Pool area is clean and gets the sun. Pool can clear any hangover with one jump into it. On a separate note , nothing to do with hotel. Be careful around the casino as there are pick pockets everywhere. So if you are planning on a good drinking session, DONT walk back alone.

The Hotel was lovey, it was clean and tidied every day and with fresh linen. The food in the hotel was of a high standard and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, even offered us umbrella's when it rained! The use of the hotel PC's was also free. The outside patio area was clean & tidy at all times, day & night. The location was quite nice, easy, walking distance to the beach and a short taxi or bus ride to Las Ramblas. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again myself.

We booked the hotel directly from their website, total of 3 rooms. Two has no issue, but one room has nothing but problems! First, horrible internet connection, kept getting dropped. They switched a room, but the new room has no power! Either electricity or air-condition, not both. So change room again. The staff is helpful and make the change. However, that is not a great experience after a long tired day. I wonder if the rooms we checked-into are barely used, smell like stale, mold. The towels are broken, and I have sensitive skin. Started having rashes after using the towel. Luckily I have medication with me. Second days, things work better. The rooms smell good after cleaning and with clean towels. Toiletries are limited, one kind of soap applied for everything?? The pool and terrace are nice. Location is great, and within walking distance from the beach. Breakfast selections are limited. If the hotel is 3 stars, it think I will consider it decent. Nice size room for Barcelona. However, if it is considered a 4 stars hotel, I expected more. Some work needs to be done.

This is an average business hotel. Because of it’s rather remote location you always will need a taxi to go someplace.The breakfast selection is OK but the coffee could be better. The beds are quite comfortable. However the safe in the room did not work.

This is our second stay, in a family room. Yes agree the front desk are a little luke warm after a 30 hour fight one kind of expects better.... not so our breakfast man who was always welcoming and helpful.The buffet breakfast is still the best of all the hotels we stayed in this trip.We like it as it is out of the hustle, and an 8 E taxi ride and you are pretty much anywhere. 5 min walk to beach , small local mall, convienance shop. Walk around the block and find cheap welcoming local bars and meet the locals.We hired bikes from the hotel which was great fun. This wasnt a cheap option for us,but chose it as it suits us, but in reality the rooms and bathrooms need improvements if you are going to command these room rates.
