This is a basic nice hotel, the location is OK, a neighborhood where people live, therefore, wandering around the hotel feels safe and you get the idea you are living in Barcelona as supposed to being a tourist there. It would be a long walk to get to the tourist attractions, but the hotel is close to Diagonal or other... More

The hotel is very well located, near Diagonal Av. Plenty of bus stops there, shops and restaurants. Metro stop is not far. Connection to the main touristic points is easy. Rooms are clean and nice and price is affordable. I recommend.

The hotel was in the perfect location for the 3 generations of the family to all experience Barcelona in the way we each wanted. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the breakfast buffet was plentiful and fresh, the staff were very helpful.

This was a pretty basic hotel which I was auto-assigned to for a conference. Pluses, it is cheap and clean. Minuses... the street noise is high, the air conditioning didn't really work, 1 of 2 elevators was broken for at least 2 days of my stay, the gym (across the street in the Gran Derby) is bare bones with mail...

Firstly, although this hotel is it out of the way, it's quiet, and once you have worked out the metro and buses you are not to far away from the city centre attractions. Good for getting to the Nou Camp as it was an easy 20 mins walk away. Buses to Plaza Catalunya took about 20 minutes and the nearest... More

Easily a 5k walk to the main areas/beach/harbor and was not ideal for 2 women on a girls weekend away as too far to walk in the evenings and didn't feel very safe around the area.

This hotel is very ideal for those touring Spain , it is walkable from city center, aquarium, beach and many other tourists spots. The tourist bus stops right in front of the hotel. Breakfast is complimentary. The rooms are neat and quite spacious. Good for short stay .
