We were looking for a family room and found most hotels in Barcelona only had rooms for two people. The rooms were spacious and included a kitchen area with table along with a pull out couch for the kids. This hotel was conveniently located, walking distance to the old towne and 15 minutes from the beach. The staff spoke English... More

15 mins from beach, 20 mins from old town. I found the staff to be helpful and the rooms clean and well maintained. On the money price wise, best recommendation is that I would consider a return in the future. El prat airport Barca, change at Clot for the metro to Marina cheap as chips on a 1 zone train... More

We moved to this hotel from another nearby hotel and paid 10% more for family room. It was definitely worth the small increase. Spacious, clean, modern room. Beds were good, also the sofa bed for the kids. Staff is friendly, both housekeeping (6th floor) and reception were helpful with the small little extras that separate average and excellent service. Walls... More

We stayed here for a 5 nights and loved the large comfortable rooms. The area is a little run down with a huge building site on the opposite side of the road, which was a little noisy. The Breakfast was OK for the 10 euros that we paid each morning. The staff at reception in the evening were not as... More

The male member off staff who works night shifts at the hotel has a poor attitude and even fell asleep at reception during the night. This resulted in us being locked out for over half an hour at roughly 3am. Location isnt the nicest as it is located opposite a funeral director and a building site. Taxis were not easy... More

As indicated by earlier reviews the rooms are quite large. The hotel is very new and the bathrooms are very large for Europe, including a large bath and very good shower. One thing that struck me was the number of spare power points - 9. I have found in most European hotels lucky to find 1 spare. One of the... More

This is a lovely clean hotel which is pretty well situated not far from two metro stations and not more than half an hour's walk from both the beach and La Rambla. We were impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms, and the no-nonsense (though not unfriendly) nature of the staff on reception. The rooms are large, with huge bathrooms... More

The hotel is a little out of the way from most of the attraction, but it is quite and clean and the rooms are large. There is a small metro station near by but you'll have to change trains in order to get to most places. Over all I think it's a good worth for yor.money
