We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights whilst visiting Barcelona in August. On arrival we were struck by how friendly the hotel staff were and how clean the hotel was. Hotel has 5 floors- we were located on 5th floor, and room was a good size with TV/Air Con/Hair Dryer. There was limited storage space for clothes but this... More

Pro: The stay was excellent and the staff very friendly. A clean hotel, modern furniture perfect for a young couple. Cons: Very noisy from the inside due to other clients of the hotel and poor isolation. Maybe some keep quiet signs might help

The only downside is that there is no kettle, and the water is not drinkable, however the latter is not the hotels fault. We did... More

The staff were all very polite, spoke good English and the reception is open 24 hours. The rooms were... More

Excellent hotel for the price, especially if you book well n advance. We thought it must be quite basic as it is a 2 star hotel but it has a 4 star feel. The reception staff are really helpful. Great location around 15 minute to La Ramblas. Quimet & Quimet, which is highly regarded as one of the best tapas... More

Good hotel, handy location. Room was a bit small but very clean and modern. Reception staff were friendly and professional. Like the small bar over the road, La Chana (great music). Very close to metro stop.
