I used to live in Barcelona and I have been back there for visits. This hotel is located in the middle of "Plaza España" which is a very good area of the city. There is metro, train and bus stops just outside the hotel. There is also a shopping center in the same square, where you can find many stores,... More

Hi. First hotel on a 2 week stay in Catalonia and Costa Brava. Stayed here for 2 nights on a Saturday and Sunday end of June 2014. The Barcelona Airport bus works a treat (once you find it outside the Airport) and drops you off across the road from the hotel. 5 Euros each one way it is very cheap.... More

The view of my room was outstanding - montjuic and plaza espania right out of the window, many bars and restaurants around the hotel , metro and rail station near the hotel. The service was not perfect. Room safe terrible and they ask for extra fee to use it. Great wifi all round the hotel fast and easy connection.

This hotel is centrally located, very close to the subway station, shops and restaurants. Hotel is large, first impression is that the lobby is rather dated and the furniture has seen better days. Room was a good size, bed was very hard, also the pillows. Breakfast which was included was served in a large cafeteria type dining room, not much... More

The hotel is perfectly situated next to the espana circle and montjuic. It's possible to see the fountain show from the hotel's rooftop pool. Service was very good. Maintenance is not perfect as the building is old. Food isn't great but who wants to eat in the hotel in Barcelona anyway?

Stayed here 3 nights and generally, our stay here was lovely, considering that the most of the time we were away for visiting Barcelona's beauties.There are positive and negative points. First of all, the location of this hotel is central and with a beautiful sight, if even is surrounded by principal and noisy streets. The beauty of Espana Square, the... More

Just arrived home from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We decided to go with a city view room and definitely think that made a huge difference. It was lovely to sit by the window and admire the scenery both during the day and night. Although, it can get quite noisy at night so might not be suited to... More

Hotel have wonderful location on Plaza Espania. Rooms are clean and comfortable, breakfast is excellent. Big problem is noise of traffic, you can hear ambulance and police almost every night. As hotel is big, is normal that all the time there are many people in the lobby. Unfortunately it means: prepare your self and be patience, as you have to... More
