Hotel was very clean although the room looked onto a hostel at the back-this was very noisy into the early hours of the morning. The breakfast was also VERY overpriced-coffee shops near by would be a much better option. Overall though very comfortable and an excellent location for the sites.

This hotel`s location is ideal, and you can walk to all the great shops and restaurants. The rooms are very nice decorated, and have all the facilities, although the rooms are a bit small. On the roof terrace is a great bar where you can enjoy a drink with a club ambiance. Perfect place to stay for a weekend of... More

We stayed 3 nights and found it very comfortable and central just 100 metres from the Ramblas. It is tastefully decorated and modern with boutique style rooms. Loved the history and there are tours available to learn about the history of the hotel. The deluxe room was a reasonable size with a fridge which contains cold drinks, water and chocolate... More

This is far most the best four star hotel that I stayed in Europe. They assisted us right away and introduce to us all the facilities. Sadly, the location is quite far as we had to walk there and it's inside a corner where it seems unsafe and there are pick pockets. Nevertheless, the staff were very welcoming and respond... More

Stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is a beautiful building and is 100m from La Ramblas. It is an old convent and has been tastefully modernised to mix old with boutique.I was in room 308 and the room was spacious and well appointed. I would recommend this hotel for any type of traveller.

We were there for a city trip in couple. We have experienced a perfect hotel in all but we heard the steps in neighbouring rooms and in the corridor very much. Perfect location. Great style. Good service. Etc

Beautiful communal areas, a decent bar and brilliant location but everything else just not good enough. Little but important things like not being shown up to our room with our bags on arrival, having to ask four times for the air conditioning in our room to be switched on and a cramped, ill-thought out bedroom with no storage, meant that...
