Classy hotel, valued the room and breakfast. Staff irreprehensible and always nice, with no exceptions. Quiet and stroll inviting surroundings. We are sure we are going to be back next time we will be in Barcelona.

This was a lovely venue- the rooms were clean the poor area lovely and the food great. The bathrooms were really nice with separate bath and shower. We stayed here for 2 nights and couldn't fault the stay. Ideal location for with the convention centre. Short walk from the tube station also.

This hotel is not worth the trouble even if you pay less than $99EU, and I'm being optimistic. This is a conference hotel, so if while you are staying there happens to be a conference good luck! as must conferences usually have parties for their attendees, in this case the party was in their gardens with loud dance music, you...

Had a three day seminar here and have to say service, staff and food were excellent, Great Hotel! The lobby is stunning and the twin swimming pools are a great addition. Really great place to stay especially if taking in a game of football.

Our first room had broken furniture, shower, stains, and no internet. The second room had even more disgusting stains all over the carpet and yet another broken shower head. The furniture is dated and uncomfortable yet they don't make up for the lack of renovations by discounting the price. Sadly the concierge staff was also dismal and extremely rude to... More

Where do I start... horrible location you have to travel minimum 15 minutes away for any kind of entertainment/food options. The rooms VERY outdated with HARD beds and tiny pillows.Calling the front desk or anything else is a mission unless you find the tiny booklet with all their extensions.

We all have different expectations of 5* hotels, and this one managed to reach none of mine. Admittedly it does have a few on-site restaurants/bars and other amenities, however I did not make use of any of them so can only offer an opinion of the service received and the room. Let's start with positives: The lobby is very impressive... More
