4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

They still use old style metal keys to give you a taste of what you get. The safe did not work. Told them on the morning of day 2 of 7 days. Maintenance came but couldn't fix it. Told front desk but they never sent a technician. They don't provide enough towels. Told front desk to tell house keeping but they never did. They have a computer to use but it doesn't print and it doesn't create .pdf's to send to the front desk to print. Lastly, the shower doesn't have a full glass door or curtain. A lot of water will get on the floor. The TV direction and channel was changed when we were out each day. Seems housekeeping needed something to do. DON'T STAY HERE!

The room was extra small, the ac didn't work. The only decent thing was the location. I wouldn't recommend this hotel

Location was very good. Staff was helpfull but I have a closet larger than the room. Bed was hard and stiff. Extreamly poor lighting in the room. Amenities were scarce. By US standards this hotel would rate as a 2 star. I managed hotels and resorts for 35 years and would not stay here again.

The staff at the hotel were very helpful & eager to assist you. The hotel room,however, leaves much to be desired. Although we wanted a non smoking room there seemed to be a lingering smoke smell. The room is poorly designed in that there was hardly any room for two people to walk without waiting for one person to clear the space to pass by. The bathroom is at the end of a longish corridor. The hotel is well located if your interest is to be near the Plaza Catalunya & The Rambla. Also, it is a relatively short drive from the Sants railway station or at least the taxi cost is low.

Although the staff were very helpful & the location was quite good the room we had was very tight in that there were many times when two people could not walk about until one person cleared the space. The beds were uncomfortable & the pillows would barely fit the definition of a pillow....not restful in the least.

I am not used to European hotels so I thought the room was very small- I have only been to US and Canadian hotels. But others told me this is typical.

Good Location, minutes from Universitat Metro Station, clean rooms, staff very polite and friendly

The hotel was nice and pleasant. Though on the next day found a much better place though not in such a prime location. The location is fantastic.

Toured all of Barcelona. Barcelona is a beautiful,vibrant,energetic,full of life,educational city. Best city of all our trips. (We do a lot of traveling) There should be GRAB BARS in the shower area.

nice place but just a bit corwed-good for ppl with rental cars

not a four star hotel. I would say three star. hot tub was cold, pool -ugh, beds were rolling, I even got locked out the hotel one night cause they didnt have anyone on the front desk. I would not stay there again.

It was a good hotel in a safe and convenient location. It was nice to have a pool, but the area was small and crowded. We rented a car for our stay, so it was nice the hotel had an overnight parking garage for an extra fee. The front desk staff was nice and helpful at times. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel is they did not provide hand soap in the bathroom.

Good location. A little over a block to a Starbucks where one can use their Wifi. Metro across from the Starbucks. Only ten minutes to Las Ramblas and the Boqueria Market. Several good places to eat only a block away in either direction and at reasonable prices. Having internet would have helped. Other hotel we stayed at before our cruise had free Wifi in room at about same price. Our stay was very enjoyable.

It was not my first time at this hotel in Barcelona and I would definitely recommend it. It's a good deal quality/price. Do not expect a very large room but staff is helpful in case you are given a small one and ask to change it for a bigger one. Rooms and bathroom are clean and well maintained. The hotel is located close to the city center and there is everything you may need (bars, restaurants, pubs, pharmacy etc) within walking distance. There is a nice and quiet pool on the roof.

Hotel is located 200 meters from Plaza de Catalunya and very close to Universitat underground station so you have everything within walking distance. The hotel is nice, quiet and offers free wireless connection. The room was small but clean and comfortable, the bathroom too. I would definitely recommended it, the price I paid was also good compared to other hotels of same category in this area.

The hotel was situated in a convenient location. Walking distance to nice part of town, many metro, bus, taxi options. The room was large and comfortable, we had a nice balcony with view of the main avenue. Highly recommended.

the hotel staff was extremely helpful, speaking English helped our communications and they were always willing to take time to help you locate the days travel sites. The biggest negative was the size of the rooms. The bathroom was adequate size, however it was difficult to manueuver in the room with only 2 people.
