We stayed 3 nights after a cruise at this hotel as a "treat" before we returned home. It was somewhat of a surprise when we walked into a very small and cramped reception area. The staff were excellent though and assisted us with any enquiry. Room was small and I thought the the whole experiecnce was a bit of a... More

I stayed for 4 days wanting to explore the sights, visit the beaches and also do some shopping. The location was perfect. The hotel was a little oasis of luxury with friendly courteous staff. I would highly recommend it and would choose this hotel again if I manage another visit.

This intimate refuge occupies an atmospheric corner of the Placa Reial, one of the prettiest plazas in all of Spain, just off the Ramblas, the historic, tree-lined boulevard that runs through the heart of the oldest neighbourhoods of Barcelona. Completely renovated a few years ago, the family-owned property offers 5-star amenities in a limited number of well-designed rooms, as well... More

Highly recommended - wonderful stay, excellent staff, beautiful hotel. Lovely little pool on the roof to cool off, views over the buzzing Placa Reail. Clean, friendly, calm, pleasant and nicely designed. Extremely comfortable bed.

Just returned from Barcelona, Costa Brava and Venice. This hotel was by far our favourite. Best quality was the welcoming atmosphere, from being greeted with a Cava, to the free non-alcholic mini bar in the room, to the sumptuous and delicious breakfast. Re the latter, you can order anything off the fabulous menu as your breakfast, free of charge. It... More

The hotel was so clean and comfortable. Nothing was too much to ask from the staff. It is situated on a busy plaza with excellent eating places and lively entertainment. Our room was very comfortable, with a complementary non alcoholic mini bar, a balcony enabling us to look out over the plaza, treats left in our room once or twice... More

Stayed here for an anniversary without the kids. The hotel was a perfect location for exploring las ramblas and Barri gotic. The room was everything we'd want for a city break, clean with a good shower with lots of Molton brown bits and pieces to keep mrs happy. We used the roof terrace on a nice day to sunbathe and...

This hotel was the amazing and located perfectly in the heart of Barcelona! We had a room that was beautifully decorated and had a balcony that overlooked the plaza with fountain. Perfect for relaxing and people watching. The friendly staff, special touches (mid day & evening snacks) and awesome breakfasts put it over the top. Five stars in our opinion!
