Lots of great reviews about this hotel but I guess I was unlucky with my room, only window in my room was shuttered and looked inwards to a service area, very small room with dated furniture and a tired feel, great location but certainly not a boutique hotel, 2nd time in this great city, but previous hotel was far better...

Quaint & lovely spanish ambience - small balcony overlooking the Cathedral & square. Very romantic with music from the square wafting through the balcony doors in the evening - fun to people watch too. The service was very friendly & breakfast was full buffet downstairs. Highly recommend this hotel for its location in the gothic district - easy walking distance... More

Stayed here for two nights earlier this month. Fantastic location lovely room and eating outside watching the world go by. What more can you ask for. Apparently decent wi fi according to an earlier review. I certainly didn't come to Barcelona for that. Better things to do and see in this beautiful city.

The staff at this hotel was friendly and helpful throughout my stay in May 2014. The hotel has a wonderful location across from the cathedral and my room was charming. I loved having a view of the cathedral and the activity on the plaza. This was my third stay in this hotel and I highly recommend it.

You can't beat the location! This hotel is located in the Gothic District which is the heart of the historic area. It is directly facing the Barcelona Cathedral, a five minute walk to Las Ramblas and the metro stop, a 15 minute walk to Barceloneta Beach. The rooms are fairly large and have small balconies. The bathrooms are modern and... More

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. Great location for everything. Had room on 2nd floor overlooking cathedral but did have a pole obstructing some of the view and the tree branches didn't help. Absolutely rubbish for WiFi, non existent practically. There is a lot of tourists in the area as it is right opposite the Cathedral. Staff generally ok... More

This hotel is in Barri Gothic distric,near El Born. Apart from being opposite the cathedral it is close to Jaume 1 metro, hop on hop off tourist bus, bus line, restaurants and a great local food market. We had room 606. It was not the cheapest but with a view of the cathedral, and a large terrace which got a... More

Perfect location in old part of the town, opposite the cathedral. Ramblas is 5 minutes walk through pedestrian streets. The room was spacious, clean and nicely furnished. Bathroom had a full bath with a spa and plenty of toiletries. There is a taxi stand just round the corner. Many eating places nearby.
