Stayed here just 2 nights. Comfortable beds, clean, great location, friendly staff. First time the breakfast was good, second time (I arrived just before the end of the breakfast time) the food was a bit cold and not as generous as the previos morning. Our room was bit noisy, because of the traffic, but at the end didn't bother us... More

Stayed here via a football package so wasn't expecting much but I was pleased with my stay. The staff were very helpful, spoke very good English and humoured my attempts at speaking Spanish. Our room was very hot, we couldn't figure out the heating/AC controls but we didn't ask for any help either. We were facing the road, when the... More

I’m writing this review about 2 months after my stay, so some of the details are slipping my memory. I had an opportunity to stay at this hotel during a week’s visit to Barcelona. We were with a tour group, Go Ahead Tours, which I would highly recommend if you are exploring tour groups for Barcelona or other areas. Great... More

Stayed here for five nights and the design got to me in the end. Rather dark and brown. But the rooms are clean, staff are helpful and breakfast ok. If you get a room facing the street. Don´t worry. There´s two levels of sound proofed glass. I slept like a baby during my stay. Plenty of good restaurants and bars... More

My husband & I spent two nights here last month as part of an escorted tour. The location is convenient to the metro as well as walking to Ramblas (a fair distance but pleasant). The staff were all excellent and the rooms comfortable. The problem is the noise. Hardwood flooring throughout and paper thin walls made all sounds louder. I... More

I had two unpleasant points to make: our room was for three while the third bed was a sofa which could be opened into bed. It was imporsibble to sleep on even though our daught is rather... More

Good hotel, nice and clean. Walking distance to Rambla Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia. Even to Barrio Gotico, but that's close to 20 minute walk. Metro station just around the corner. All in all, a very good stay for a weekend in Barcelona.
