What and opportunity I had to be there on September 11, 2014! I was staying here (I am a single, senior woman traveller) for 1 day post-cruise and hoped to be able to do the hop-on-hop-off tourist bus and have easy access to an airport shuttle so I choose this hotel from the internet mainly because of its location -...

Currently in this hotel. Noisy rooms, you can hear everything in other rooms and in the hallway from heels and talking to toilets flushing and suitcases rolling. Room temperature preset and cannot be changed even though there is a thermostat in each room--- room temperature set at 23 degrees. Beds are very hard. Hotel towels have torn corners, stains and...

The location is good, not perfect, but good. Good transportation - Metro station is just 10 meters from hotel, taxi to/from airport took me 20/15 min. Room and common spaces are clean. Hotel staff were friendly. May be it was extraordinary time (3-5 November 2014) but hotel seemed a little bit overcrowded during breakfast period.

Our room was very comfortable. Big bed, air-conditioning, great view from the window. We asked for highest floor possible and we got it. Few steps from swimming pool with bar. This hotel was perfect to relax after all-day sightseeing Barcelona. We are highly recommending it! The service at the desk could be slightly more nice to us, but we understand... More

Easy access to metro and train station. Nice walk to Montjuic and Pobre sec neighborhood, easy metro to La Rambla and other sights. In spite of busy intersection the room (3rd floor) was relatively quiet. Bed was comfy with enough pillows. Breakfast was substantial with lots of choices. Other meals average. Sushi in Japanese restaurant was super expensive for what... More
