Good location in walking distance to many attractions, shops and subway. Nice and helpful hotel staff, small pool and hotel parking, modern rooms. Parking in front of the hotel is a little bit difficult, just sidewalk and no stopping possibilities.

I stayed at this hotel with my 2 sisters before and after our trip to Morocco- for a total of 4 nights. The hotel is very well located in Barcelona. You can walk to everything and the subway is a block away. The hotel itself is "budget friendly", so if you're just looking for a place to crash- this is... More

Spend 4 nights at this hotel. We had room 409 which had air conditioning and a safe. The room was facing the pool and was lovely and quiet. The bed was large and very comfortable. On entering the hotel we were made to feel very welcome. Always a friendly face to ask questions about where to eat or transport problems.... More

The bathrooms don't have locks on the doors and the bathrooms itself needs a revamp as it is moldy and filled with grime. The Breakfast was below average and the dinning... More

I think the hotel caters to groups as there were three there during the week we were there It is convenient to bus and Metro. The breakfast buffet was very good. Our room overlooked the (tiny) swimming pool and it was very quiet at night. The desk staff were always helpful and, with one exception, very comfortable speaking English. I'd... More

Despite advertising air conditioning, this hotel DOES NOT HAVE A/C! The antiquated system simply cannot keep up with the heat of the city. Otherwise, this hotel is 3 stars. BUT no a/c at the end of a very long and hot day is a crap cafe to cone back too.

Very good location, close to subway and Ramblas. Very clean, comfortable beds. We were on the ground floor overlooking the pool. Only a small pool but more than adequate for a swim after a very hot day sightseeing. Breakfast was good and the free WiFi fast. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Good location, too costly for the service you get. It is rated four star but you get three star service for a five star price.very near subway station few minutes walk from Ramblas. Lots of restaurants in the vicinity.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
