The room was perfect, dark and quiet without a window. The location was very good, close to metro, la Rambla and the harbour. Good restaurants very close to the hotel. xxx xxx xxx xxx xxx xxx xxx xxx.

Good quality and value for money. A good starting point for sighseeing Barcelona, with walking distance to the harbour and La Rambla. Good quality restaurants nearby, and an excellent breakfast/bakery out the door, turn left, 150 m to walk.

good location for subway and walking to great little restaurants in that area.We went in April and the swimming pool was far to cold to go in.We were very happy to have a huge balcony even if the view was of locals hanging out their washing. Bed, pillows and bed linen fresh and very comfortable.

The room was clean and comfortable (air con was brilliant, efficient AND quiet!). No tea/coffee making facilities in room but... More

Hotel is very well situated, not far from Ronda Litoral. You can easily get around the city of Barcelona. Most people chose to walk, but who wouldn't given the spectacular views this city has to offer? Hotel itself is very well maintained. The staff are great, very helpful and friendly without being over the top. We stayed here for 3... More

There were only to points I think the hotel can improve on. Firstly , the TV channels were almost exclusively Spanish. The only English channel were news channels. Probably something can be done to improve that. Also the hotel... More

Really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. We went for the room only and found this to be very good value for money. The hotel is steps away from the L2 subway which means the journey to/from the airport is really easy and quick. Even better, the hotel is a 10 min stroll from the main areas.. las rambles, the...
