I was staying at the hotel during my city break visit in Barcelona beginning of December. Very pleasantly surprised about the room on the 3rd floor. Wonderful location and superb quality. As I read the reviews I expected the room overlooking the street was noisy, but for me acceptable, especially for the view from the balcony! Service amazingly nice and... More

When I arrived at the hotel, there was a power outage in the neighborhood. As a result they couldn't let me check in for several hours, which was very unfortunate because I was all sweaty from my journey. Luckily the reception staff were friendly enough to arrange a towel for me upon request, so that I could wash my face... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel for our long weekend away at the start of August. The location of the hotel is great, minutes from La Rambla and not a far walk from the sea. The rooms are basic but adequate, although the see through bathroom door right next to the toilet wasn't ideal. The rooms were made up everyday by... More

Stayed here week commencing 28th July. Excellent location for getting around. Staff here are very helpful. Our room did not have a view of any kind but this did not matter, the break was to explore Barcelona. The room was very comfortable and absolutely spotless. Other reviews mentioned noise, we did not hear any noise at all at night. Can't... More

The communal areas of the hotel smelt of stale tobacco smoke. Room was so small that you could not fully open the wardrobe door because it hit the bed. The room was extremely dark, even with all lights on. You could not hold a conversation in the room until about 5 minutes after the toilet had been flushed, it made... More

I stayed at this hotel for 7 days with my partner and we have no reason to complaint. At the beginning we were a little worried about the bad reviews from other guest however, upon arrival we had a warm welcomed which made us feel at ease. The room we were first allocated was very small so we requested a... More

Great hotel. I could nit pick like some other users but for what you're paying I can't complain at all! Staff was absolutely amazing! We didn't like our original room it was small and facing the back alley. I asked for a room change and they put us up in their new "test" rooms and it was awesome. Super modern,... More

Stayed at this hotel with a friend of mine. We stayed at room 403 which has an inconvenient placed wall in the middle of the room between the two beds. The bedroom itself was very very small. By day we placed our suitcases on the beds and in the evening we had to pack our bags again in order to... More

We stayed here on 2nd and 3rd June 2014 and thought this hotel was great. We asked for a quieter room out the back after reading other advice on Trip Advisor. The room was huge with good storage space, strong wifi and a huge bathroom. The location is in the really interesting part of the city right in the middle... More
