This was advertised as a 4 star hotel when I booked it through last minute.com, I have to be honest and not agree with this rating as I've had much better experiences of other hotels which hold a lower star. However what this place does offer is a central point for most attractions in Barcelona! Roughly 2 minutes from the... More

Terrible bathroom: not very clean, broken hair dryer that was not fixed regardless of our complaint, freezing stone floors, bath plug that doesn't fit drain hole and bath glass curtain with the space space between it's and bath's edges, so however careful you take shower , you'll get floor covered with water then. Front Desk agents are very nice, some... More

This hotel has a very good location, short walk to everything. (Barceloneta 10 mins, shopping street 2 mins) Rooms are clean, bathtub in the bathroom. People in reception is always nice and friendly. Would recommend to others who are planning to stay in Barcelona.

We arrived at the airport and got the aerobus(30mins) to placa de cataluyna then walked to the hotel within 5 mins. Location: across the road from Barcelona Cathedral, shortcuts to... More

This hotel is rated at a four star on most sites; however, is a three star at the best. I based this off of "American" star rating and what we are use to when we see a hotel that is labeled four stars. The best thing this hotel has going for it is its location, which is very close to... More

However, the hotel is not 4* as promised on the website, it is quite dated, the room was extremely basic but had... More

We stayed at this hotel this June and the hotel was awful, we had 1 thousand Euros stolen from us in the hotel room, most probably by the staff there. We complained to the manager and they didn't care whatsoever. The hotel was very bad and I made a terrible choice staying there.

The hotel is not a 4 star hotel, the room is quite small and ugly, and if you do not get room overlooking the street is worse. The area where the hotel is located is central, very close to La Rambla, the staff is nice.
