We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014.The hotel is in a good location near bus and metro station.The hotel has nice modern room, good shower, good bed and plenty of wardrobe space, but they have bed bugs that bite us. Now we are afraid that we took home with us.:(((((

We stayed here for 3 nights weekend of 4th July. We found the hotel to be in a good location just a short stroll from the bus stop and metro where you could reach Las Ramblas in a 10 minutes. We walked in during the day and it only took us 30 minutes and the walk is pleasant. The hotel... More

The hotel is clean and in quite location, unfortunately it is not very close to city centre, I would say location is ok as it is only 2 min away from hop off hop on bus stop. The downside is a poor breakfast service at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant staff don't acknowledge you at all. You have to ask... More

The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are modern and good. The hotels location a little far from town, but 10 mins from the metro. The breakfast was a little basic, and staff we're generally unhelpful and non-attentive. It's good for a decent value hotel, but not really what you expect for 4 stars.

I use this hotel regularly on business trips. The location is convenient, being located very close to the Diagonal. The rooms are clean and spacious, and many have terraces. The decor is getting a bit oldish and the rooms are somewhat dark. Beds are comfortable and I usually do not have noise problems. The breakfast offers a decent selection of... More

Good business hotel. Rooms are clean and sufficiently equipped. Decoration in rooms (and I have stayed here close to 10 times) are quite dark, which make them smaller than they really are. So nothing fancy there. But the location is great with good access to Avenida Diagonal as well as restaurants frequented by locals. This was the first time I... More

Everything was smooth from making reservations to check-in, the stay and a very early departure. The staff are helpful, efficient and multi-lingual, also patient with hesitant attempts at Spanish and Catalan. Good breakfast. Excellent area for small restaurants and easy access to two of the hop-on hop-off buses. I'd happily stay there again.
