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.

It is quite clean, the service desk is well managed. I use to go there one week a month and I consider it with a good balance cost/quality. It is 10min from downtown by taxy , in Barcellona the taxy are quite cheap.

Clean, quiet, comfortable, economical and has a good breakfast. It is located in a convenient area near shopping, dining and easy to travel via bus and underground. Taxi service available very close to the entrance. The Diagonal is just one block away and this is one of the main roads in the city.

The hotel is located nicely about a 10min walk from the city Center and the Barcelona Sants railway station. The Loreto street is quiet and you won't hear any traffic to the room.

Good location, very friendly staff, good comfortable rooms, decent breakfast. Ideal for business trips. Excellent pricing compared to general Barcelona level. Highly recommended for business travellers who don't want to spend a fortune in BCN.

Excellent service, warm, attentive, from the moment I made the reservation to the end of my stay. Great rooms, super clean, comfortable, modern, with luxury bathrooms. The location was just right, a quiet but very central location. I highly recommend this hotel to single people as well as families.
