4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean quiet rooms. Great breakfast. Excellent for beach and sightseeing. Friendly staff. All areas of the hotel were kept beautifully clean. Evening menu left a bit to be desired but you wouldn't go hungry. Only real downside was the groups of 'stags' who were very noisy.

The hotel has an excellent location if you want to be near the beach and has good access to public transport. However, it tries to be everything to everybody. The rooms are very small for the price and the hallway of our floor was smelly with a dirty carpet. Ventilation is also an issue

Really enjoyed our stay! Lovely pool. 5mins from the beach. Room was clean. Nice little gym, perfect for a girls weekend away! Breakfast was good! Tea and coffee in your room. Defiantly Would stay again

Our room was not ready until 2 o'clock but the staff were very helpful and they gave our baggages. The room was clean and they cleaned the room every day. Breakfast was good but most of the times the fruits were not tasty. The pool was ok. The location was good and near to beach so we were at beach every nights and we enjoyed this but obviously far from La Rambla St. Generally everything was good just i think something was missed in the hotel. I suggest they need a designer so to make changes so the hotel environment become happier and live. It was just Delirium.

Really surprised by how good this hotel was. The pool area is fantastic and had the sun most of the day (which the hotel photos don't really suggest). Great location for the festival and beach and I would definitely go back.

Our room smelled like mold and the blanket in the closet was covered in black, wet mold. We couldn't get out of there fast enough! Good location - within walking distance of El Born, a super cool part of Barcelona where the Picasso Museum is located. Restaurant prices were reasonable and the pool was nice but it was really difficult to get past the room!

Everything was perfect!! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The location was quiet with easy access to everything ... including a short 5 minute walk to the beach. I would highly recommend this hotel.

We went as a group of 14 hens for a hen party, the hotel was FULL of people doing the same. It was cheap and easy, and close to the beach, so all in all perfect for that. Things were perfectly clean, and the rooms were fine for the price we paid. Food was average, service was average. A good value for money option.

The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful. Our room was not great - it smelled like cat urine when you entered, the shower stall was rotten with mould and the shower door wouldn't close so the floor got flooded every time (probably the reason for the smell). It had two single beds when we wanted a double but the hotel was very busy. The air conditioning system didn't seem to work any where in the hotel so it was very hot and humid. The pool area that our room faced was very loud with long weekenders in full party mode. The breakfast buffet was excellent in variety and freshly cooked, but we found supper there tasted and appeared like it was poured out of a can. We did love the patio for dining and the pool is decent. Overall the place is clean, but just needs to be refreshed like any hotel does. It was a short walk to the beach, restaurants, public transit and the hop-on-hop-off bus - the reason we wanted it - so we really enjoyed the location.

I stayed here for one night while on business in Barcelona. When I got to my room i could tell it was old, dirty, and most importantly, it was extremely hot as the AC unit didn't work. I asked twice about fixing it and they claimed the entire hotel was having issues and they were working on it. I returned to my room after dinner, and it was still very hot so I opened a window. there were various parties happening outside so it was very loud. I woke up just 2 hours later covered in mosquito bites. Worst night sleep of my life. The woman at checkout could not care less. Luckily I only had one night there before I moved to hotel Diagonal Barcelona (I highly recommend it.) I will certainly never be going back.
