One of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed at. The decor in the rooms are all modern and clean. Bed is extremely comfy, good nights sleep every night. Our bedroom was by the main road but couldn't hear a thing. Staff were all friendly and helpful. All spoke fluent English which helped a lot. The breakfast buffet was lovely, couldn't... More

We use marriote hotel points for this stay and feel over charged. For 30k points per night(92 euro if pay), we get small room with tight bathroom. We are platinum member, which at least get free wifi and free breakfast. The location is not bad, you can reach attractions easily through metro or trains.

Although the Room was clean and modernly furnished, we encountered a few shortcomings that in a Marriott hotel should not happen. I had made 2 reservations for 3 consecutive nights (1 paid and 2 with reward points). At the checkin, they first did not find the reservation for the first night, but then assured me that the 3 nights were... More

We stayed at this hotel in 2012 and it was "ok" then, nothing bad but nothing to stand out. This time we really enjoyed our stay! They had a good breakfast for platinums. The staff was great. We stayed for two different nights and the first night we had a top floor room and they upgraded us to a junior... More

What a contrast!! The 2 previous days,we had stayed in the AC Hotel in Valencia. Superb staff. We arrived here to be half heartedly greeted. Despite being Gold members with Marriott,it didn't seem to make any difference. This may sound snooty,but you earn Gold status by being loyal to the group,and this grants you the occasional perk. Room upgrade,free breakfast.... More

We assure that we consider our loyal members but unfortunately upgrades are not always available at the hotel as we have only 4 superior rooms and 2 junior suites and it is difficult with a high occupancy at the hotel.

I am a Platinum Rewards member at Marriott, and stayed over 100 nights last year alone at their hotels. This hotel left something to be desired, both in their service and their attitude. We came to the hotel about 9:00 PM, staying only for the night, with a ride to the irport awaiting us in the morning. When I checked... More

Adjacent to the railway station, the hotel is modern with Wi-Fi, free fitness room. An ideal base for visiting attractions. The breakfast is continental although there is a small version of English breakfast. Staff very helpful.

Excellent location base from which to explore. We loved the clinical/buisness-like styling and dark monochrome decor - probably not for everyone. The service was equally buisness orientated but prompt. The breakfast was pretty poor - no hot choices and identical over the 3 days we stayed. There was no bar! NO BAR! Which surprised us in a city centre hotel.... More

The location was not in the main tourist area, but was 1 stop on the subway from Placa de Catalunya. Hence, the price was a lot more reasonable than in the La Ramblas area. We absolutely loved Barcelona. The hotel was modern and comfortable. Barcelona has so much to do that it was really just a place to sleep, albeit... More

Hotel was clean, interaction with staff fine although a smile wouldn't hurt every now and then. Breakfast was good and internet fast enough (most of the time). If what you are looking for is a place to sleep and spend minimal time, it is a good hotel. In a nutshell, it's great value If you're looking for an experience (e.g.,... More
