This hotel was very clean with excellent facilities. It is in a central location perfect if you want to explore Las Ramblas area. The roof top pool and seating area is lovely and there is a lovely view as well as escape from the hustle. There are several lovely local restaurants, I would recommend eating at the more traditional type... More

We arrived about 40 minutes before the check in time stated on our confirmation email but this was no issue for the pleasant and helpful member of... More

We have no regrets with choosing this hotel. It is close to the cruise terminal where we got off a Princess cruise, to the Metro station, to La Rambla, airport, restaurants, marina, etc. Reception service was great. The staff helped us tremendously with our sightseeing plans ie to prepurchase tickets to Gaudi attractions and even printed them, how to get... More

We flew to Barcelona to embark for a 7 day cruise. We had a long overnight flight and arrived at 10 in the morning. Our room wasn't ready but they stored our bags. The hotel is close to Las Ramblas, the market and many bars and cafés. We explored till 2 then got our room. It included a small lounge... More

This is a fantastic hotel for so many reasons! We were warmly welcomed by the staff, who told us all about the area, transport links and places to visit. The room was large, stylish, clean and air conditioned. There was even an inbuilt music system - very relaxing! The location is great - it's directly next to the Metro, so... More

Hotel is clean and modern, good air conditioning and comfy beds. Hotel bar was no more than a few seats in reception and closed at midnight which seemed ridiculously early. Streets surrounding the hotel did have a lot of restaurants with outside seating , some good some bad. Most of these shut at 1-2pm but then lots of people carried... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in September. This is a nice hotel in a good location. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, and the shower good. The Wifi worked very well. You are a 10 minute walk from Las Ramblas. The water is not much farther. There is a subway stop right in front of the hotel. Barcelona's subway... More
