We very much enjoyed our stay here. Really well positioned hotel for all that Barcelona has to offer... Staff were polite and friendly, reception and breakfast rooms were beautifully decorated. Our room was small and overlooked a courtyard, it was cool and quiet so great for us in busy hot August. We really enjoyed the roof bar/terrace and plunge pool,... More

We had 3 nights here which were perfect. The rooms are spacious, spotless, cool and quiet. Breakfast is plentiful and varied. The roof terrace is very pleasant with a fun if small pool. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Nothing is too much trouble from booking attractions and offering advice to tracking down the taxi that had taken us... More

My wife and I enjoyed a 3 night stay in this beautiful hotel. The rooftop terrace was a fabulous place to sunbathe and enjoy an excellent g + t overlooking the harbour. Staff were second to none especially Jordi. We were caught in a freak storm and upon returning to the hotel (like drowned rats!) we were created immediately with... More

Fab fab hotel, the location is superb, 7 minute walk to bottom of La Ramblas, great beds, and excellent port view! Only tiny negative is the wait for eggs (order as soon as you go into breakfast) All staff were very professional, & wi-fi worked a treat

We stayed there one night only, but would love to go back. Beautiful views from the restaurant terrace. Great service. Lovely comfortable room. High quality breakfast. Historical building. The hotel is very close to all main attractions and to the beach if you fancy a dip.

We stayed here for our 10th Anniversary in a high floor port view room. This was well worth the extra - lovely comfortable room with small balcony and views over the marina. There was no traffic noise with the french doors closed so we slept really well. The room and rest of the hotel was spotlessly clean. The hotel gave... More

Excellent location, clean, quiet and well equipped. Fabulous service including additional complementary toiletries delivered to your room on request. Pool bar was a particular highlight and included great cocktail and a clean shower and toilet facility which was available post check-out. Pool is very small but ok for a dip to cool off. Will definitely return.

Great location at the harbour close to good restaurants and areas around the rambla. The hotel offered a comfortable room with good service and the roof top bar offers a relaxing break after a day of discovering in Barcelona. About 0.5-1.0 km walk from the beaches and close to the El Born area which has many good tapa restaurants. Recommendable.
