We stayed in a club room for two nights in January and were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite. The room was huge with a v comfortable bed and fantastic bathroom and walk in closet. Would highly recommend paying a little extra for a club room as you get access to the lounge with snacks and drinks all... More

We stayed 2 nights after Christmas in this hotel for holidays. The hotel is well located and has all the public transports (efficient) nearby. You can easily reach the old town in 15-20 minutes. The hotel has all the amenities necessary to enjoy your stay (Spa really nice, bar and restaurant good, good services by the staff) and remains modern... More

I have stayed here a number of times, but on this occasion all was fine. Excellent staff, room was fine, breakfast was excellent and the bar area ok, although maybe lacking a little atmosphere. Recommended

Its a corporate hotel thats only 5 mins walk from the Nou camp, so it served a purpose. Its not cheap, the bar is quite expensive versus the bar at a central Barca Hotel that we spent our first night at. There are no tea/ coffee making facilities in a standard room. The adjoining doors with the room next door... More

You should turn up at a hotel, be greeted with smile at the door, your bags taken to your room and Champagne be free flowing for your entire stay. Add in five star service and you know you made the right choice of hotel. Re booking for the summer, top class Five Stars plus from us and would highly recommend!

We stayed in a Club Room which you couldn't fault, other than a little warm, but also comes with the exclusive use of the Club lounge which is brilliant value for money and the service is second to none with really helpful and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend and stay again.

Sorry, but while the standard room is a good size in this lovely older hotel, if you're looking for a good nights sleep and anything larger than a double bed (in US terms) you'll need to book a suite! After asking for a king or queen at the front desk, I received a very nice smile and a few winks... More
