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

Location is good, 5 minutes walk from L1 (Marina) and 8 minutes from L4 (Bogatell)metro stations, 3 stations from L1-L3 metro line cross (Pl. Catalunya). Some attractions are in walking distance. Environment is suburban, not noisy. Bathroom and rooms are spacious and clean. AC works, windows are openable, there are many electric outlets in the rooms and kitchenette. No tableware... 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

My principal impression of this hotel was it was a slightly upscaled Motel 6. The rooms are quite large, to be sure, but sterile. The floors in the rooms are uncarpeted, and not even hardwood, but some sort of plastic-coated fake wood. The furnishings are rather bland, but enough to be useful. The bed was adequate for a night or... More

In line with what many of the other reviewers here have said, this is a very nice, clean and tidy hotel, where everything is good quality and where everything works (inc. the air con). Considering how good the Barcelona public transport is, there's no need to go for anything right in the centre or by the conference centre. The tram... More
