We travelled as two couples for a birthday weekend in August. The staff were very helpful in providing maps and ideas of where to visit. On our friends birthday we were provided with a cake free of charge as a surprise in the room which was a nice touch. Rooms were clean and comfortable with functioning air con and nice... More

Fantastic service, breakfast and rooms. I want to say thank you to Pedro who delivered outstanding service!! Amazing hotel with everything you need. It is one minute away from camp nou. We also met the Valencia players, who stayed at the hotel :-)

Stayed for 3 nights while participating in an exhibition and booked by company as other colleagues were staying there. Location is not ideal as it's quite a way from downtown although there is a metro station a short walk away and you can get into the city centre from there. The rooms are very dated and the whole place could... More

Stayed there in September before my cruise holiday. Chose the hotel based on value for money and guest reviews on travel sites. Found my room to be very small and passable. I was slightly put off by the reception staff limited grasp of English. Breakfast was very nice. It offers a huge variety and is busy so be prepared to... More

I have stayed at this hotel on 2 occassions, one as a weekend break and the other on a conference. The latter is served best. It is situated too far from the action and ports in Barcelona, and the hotel has got all the romance and charm of an average priced hotel chain. You have to pay extra to use... More

Only stayed at the hotel for one night but we were lucky enough to get a great deal, so were in the Royal Suite. The Club is great and well worth using, if you can. The complementary massage that came with it was delightful. We can not fault the staff, who made us feel very welcome. The suite was great,... More

I tagged a long with my husband on a business trip to Barcelona. I was skeptical about this place when I learned it was so far from the city center. I was wrong. Accessing the city center was very easy by either cab or metro which is only a quarter of a mile from the hotel. The hotel staff was... More

Excellent staff but tired décor, worn out furnishings. This is the third time I've been here. Food options for dinner at the main restaurant are limited and preparation is mediocre at best. The hotel is reliable: attentive staffing; inadequate restaurant. If possible, stay in club room, which provides access to nice club room, and breakfasts on top floor with magnificent... More
