This hotel was in a great location, close to the beach and El Born and walking distance to Las Ramblas. On the down side the breakfast wasn't very impressive and the hotel was a little dull inside. Our room looked straight onto a wall. As we weren't in the hotel, other than to sleep and get dressed, it was fine.

My husband and I stayed here with our 13 year old son for 5 days at the beginning of the month and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hotel was modern, beautiful and clean, the service was impeccable. To top it off we had an ideal location, easy walking to the beach, La Rambla and the Gothic Quarter... More

Had the good fortune to stay here for three nights this July. Everything was superb right from being met at the door, through to reception and on into the room. Although we didn't get a view with the room it guaranteed (along with the air-con)an excellent nights sleep. The room was lovely with an excellent and very stylish bathroom. Although... More

Nice Holet, very good location close to Rambala street. Very friendly staff, clean room. Inside rooms have huge view to Barcelonas old town roofs, but only from 5-th floor Basic Food, we recommend to eat the breakfast not in the Hotel underground kitchen.

The good: Staff was helpful and friendly. Fresh fruit gift was nice touch. Room appearance was fine. The bad: Our room was on street side. With non-stop vehicle and pedestrian traffic ALL night long and single pane windows it was very difficult to sleep with all the noise. Desk confirmed the traffic is non-stop every night. Subway rumbles under the... More

We can not confirm size beds, as there are very few, until the day of arrival. We have the amenities in... More

We just stayed for one night before heading home on an early flight. The hotel was well located Barri Gothic/Born area. Easy check-in. Top floor room had terrace with seating which I would say is essential. Comfy bed, excellent shower. Much better than anticipated at €76 including taxes. No coffee facilities in the room but you could head to the... More

We were in this hotel January this year for my wife's 40th birthday surprise. We both loved it. the hotel is clean with a modern feel and décor. Beds were 'lush' (my wife's words) Great location in the old part of town just off 'las Ramblas'!? and close to 3 tube stations so perfect for getting about

This hotel is fairly conveniently situated but there are a few things that let it down. The decor of the hotel is nice but any refurbishment seems to have stopped at the door to the rooms as once you step inside they are fairly tired. We visited when it was very hot outside and the air conditioning took about 45minutes... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
