Modern, clean hotel not far from Las Rhambas. No particular charm but has all the modern conveniences. Breakfast is excellent and includes both scrambled eggs and a Spanish potatoe egg frittata. The location is ideal for visiting Barcelona but is not in a heavily touristed location..

This hotel was a good find. It is in Central Barcelona, but quiet. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, and any request for assistance was met in a very helpful manner. Even if the receptionist did not know the answer they were more than willing to go and find someone who could help. The room was comfortable, clean and... More

Excellent location with friendly and helpful staff. We were told the transport links were convenient but we just walked everywhere - no need for transport. Although we were concerned about our rooms facing onto the main street the double glazing is so good none of us had a problem with noise at night. We all slept well but that might... More

Stayed for 2 nights with the Thomas Cook Sports bundle for the Barcelona V Atletico Madrid game 17/05/2014. On arrival we were told our room wasn't ready, which we thought might happen due to an early flight, however the lady behind reception took our bags and gave us a map of popular places to go in the mean time.
