Great hotel in a great location. I had to book this hotel at the last minute due to unforeseen circumstances, and I was over the moon with my choice. Very relaxing atmosphere and for the price I got it, you can not go wrong!!!! Breakfast seemed a bit pricey though, so we opted to have breakfast elsewhere.

Actually stayed in May 2013, but TripAdvisor won't let me go back that far. The hotel is in a good location in the Barri Gotic. While our room was nice, it was also facing the street. The hotel does not have good sound insulation, so it is very noisy with street traffic. We did not sleep that well. The breakfast... More

We booked this on a hotwire secret hotrate so found it great value for the money. Location was great - easy to find, close to the metro, restaurants, beach etc. We walked from Plaza Catalunya after coming in from the airport without issue. It is also along the tourist bus route (bus touristic) if you are doing the hop on/hop... More

Pretty good hotel, though the rooms are on the smaller size. We did get a weird toilet smell in one of our rooms one night. Convenient location near the cathedral and port. Nice staff. Breakfast is in the basement, and only so-so.

Stayed for five nights at this hotel at the start of May . Great choice. Close to everything inc the beach. The room, while small and somewhat dark, had a really comfortable bed, good atmospheric lighting, great shower and great silent air con. Our room overlooked a little courtyard, and so was very quiet, with no road noise at all... More

After reading other trip advisor reviews it was with great trepidation that myself and husband set off on our first trip to Barcelona. We encountered there extremely friendly staff, a nice room on the 6th floor complete with modern bathroom and balcony. The continental breakfast was much the same as we have had in many European countries and the location... More

A 3 night stay in Barcelona was made ever more impressive by this hotel. Located off one of Barcelona's busier main roads, road noise for some might prove a little too much. However, for someone who was unconcerned by this as I was, the hotel will not fail to satisfy your every need. The double room I had located on... More
