Nice hotel close to Les Rambla (10 minutes walk). We did not use it but very close to Metro station. We booked a suite on the 9th floor very nice. Room was clean. There was a misunderstanding as to whether breakfast was included for our three night stay. We compromised and they gave us one breakfast free. Wifi free throughout... More

Food was very good. Room comfortable. Silent air condition. Perfect internet connection coverage - everywhere. Nice view from the roof.... especially from sunbet at the roof terrase. Located 10meters from metro station, 13minutes walk to the marine. Only dissapointed from the prices in Barcelona - 6EUR for beer ? (terrible)... :-)

For our 3 days stay in Barcelona, this hotel is highly recommended. It's location right at the Metro allows you to have the freedom to move around Barcelona with ease. Very clean, professional staff and very reasonable rate. I will book again when we return next time.

It is very rare that I extol the virtues of a hotel, but this hotel was an oasis in Barcelona. Very clean, excellent and efficient staff and ideal location. Room had balcony on 9th floor front, interesting watching the busy road. Would recommend to anybody visiting Barcelona.

Booked a 4 day stay in Barcelona and were lucky enough to find an excellent offer in a suite at this lovely hotel. We were made to feel very welcome and the rooms/facilities were very clean. Location is good and is helped enormously by the fact that the hotel is only a few yards away from a Metro station, making... More

Great Hotel, We had room on front, 4th floor, noisy with window open but once shut nearly soundproof. Air con worked a treat. Staff very helpful both on check in and check out. Would definitely stay again. Bar could do with a few more large glasses for lager. Most staff bi/tri-lingual.

This would be the second time we have stayed at this hotel prior to a cruise. Check-in was at 3pm, and we arrived at 10am, after an overnight flight from Canada. We were provided with a secure room to place our luggage until check-in time. The staff did the best they could do. Our rooms were ready at 3. The... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! I have to mention the staff and thank them for all their help - they were wonderful! We traveled as two young girls and weren't sure the best places to go etc, we asked the staff for advice (quite regularly!) and they couldn't do enough to help us.... More
