Well equipped hotel. Clean and safe. Excellent water pressure and beds... Rooms near elevators are noisier, especially the ones near the service doors. Friendly staff ... All the amenities of home... Wifi is free but patchy in parts of the rooms.

The staff was really pleasant and helpful with any questions we had. We were on our honeymoon and asked for champagne in our room on arrival, and they gave us some free chocolate dipped strawberries to go with it. Concierge staff the best of the best. Excellent location for Nou Camp and metro only 5 mins away. A GREAT HOTEL!

This is a fairly typical 5 star hotel at the edge of centre of Barcelona which rich in amenities, but I have to say low on character. It is a fairly nondescript concrete building that has all the stuff a business traveler wants. I had a room at the 10th floor that had a view on Camp Nou which is... More

It is always great to receive direct feedback from our guests, as you may imagine, is both the best advantage of hospitality and the hardest part, but we are strong believers in truth, no matter what. So you liked the location, I really hope... More

Stayed here for a week. Very courteous service, facilities are well equipped and a big spread for breakfast. A little away from the central precinct, but good shopping centres around the place. Very close to a train station.

This is a great hotel. Nice rooms, friendly and professional service, great food and a good gym and spa. I really enjoyed my stay here and will definitely come back. I was upgraded to one of their club rooms on the upper floors so I had the view of the whole city from my window.
