As a travel agent in the USA, I rate hotels as comparisons to similar properties nearby. I liked this location very much, a few blocks from Ramblas and no more than 10 minute walk to pier. No reason to be any closer since it would have been so noisy. Staff outstanding, English was not a problem at front desk, always... More

Not really a 4 star hotel as tired and dated. Needs a refurbishment really especially the rooms and reception areas. On the plus side the breakfast was excellent. Location ok as just a 10 minute walk from la rambla. Staff seem ok generally.

Just returned from a 6 night break in Barcelona with my 18 yo son. We had separate rooms on the 5th floor, both were doubles on the back of the hotel. Some occasional noise from the club and general city noise. What else would you expect in a hotel in a bustling city like Barcelona. Yes, the bathrooms were in... More

This is a very nice hotel. Room very clean, bathroom desperately needs a make over. Numerous cracked wall tiles, around hand rail at bath had black fungus all round. Maids obviously don't think these areas need cleaned. Probably would go back at some point for location more than anything. We moved on to a 4 star apartment near the beach... More

we stayed at this hotel to start our cruise, two days before it left. We also stayed here on night when the ship docked here at the end of our cruise. Loved the old town, and convenience of its location. The in hotel breakfast cost extra, but was well worth it.

Only spent one night at this hotel, unfortunately. Had a mostly good impression, but did feel the front desk staff was a bit cold. Very close to the metro and plenty of cabs sitting outside the hotel by night. Did notice the room was very loud with noises from the streets outside; luckily I was too exhausted for this to... More

The hotel is situated about 5 minutes walk from the Rambla and is about 20 minutes from the harbour. We found it to be clean and the rooms well maintained. The staff were helpful and friendly. There is free Wifi, you get a code that lasts 24hours, when it runs out, you just get another, and it works all over... More

After reading reviews on here I was worried. We actually found the hotel really good. I based my experience on the price of the room. We found the room excellent, although the beds are not the best. The staff were fantastic and very helpful. The breakfast is one of the best I have had in Europe. Very happy. The only... More

Recently returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel and enjoyed every minute of it. Its in a great location walking distance to all the major tourist spots & a metro right outside the door. Hotel is abit worn but nothing that has an effect on your stay. Don't pay attention to any of the negative reviews!
