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!

We can't recommend this hotel enough. Whatever you're after from a luxury stay in Barcelona this hotel delivers! Our room was immaculate, well designed and very comfortable. Great design and finishes, view over the plaza, complimentary (non alcoholic) mini bar, great bed - we were very very happy. The staff are the highlight though - hugely helpful and always on... More

The hotel is excellent in everyway but the service is to be commended. Staff at the front are very helpful. Albert was willing to help us with everything. The location is perfect. Breakfast is fantastic. We can order anything on the breakfast menu. The restaurant is superb. We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. Thank you.

My husband and I stayed for three nights this week - his 60th birthday present from me. He has always wanted to visit the city. I chose the hotel for location and because I knew we'd want an oasis in the heat, and somewhere luxurious as it was a special occasion. This hotel met every expectation and surpassed most of... More

I chose this hotel for a family vacation. I read the reviews from other reviews and I was very pleased with our experience. It is centrally located near all of the attractions, shops and restaurants are all in walking distance. I appreciated a large, spacious room with high ceilings, remodeled in contemporary design. We had two balconies facing the Plaza.... More

I expected a great hotel and everything surpassed our expectations. Very friendly staff, beatiful room and great location close to many attractions and restaurants. There is even a small pool on the roof which is rare in Europe. I strongly recommend.

We had dined on the terrace of this hotel a couple of years ago, not knowing until later that it was a hotel. The food then was fabulous and so when we knew we were returning to Barcelona, decided to book the hotel, which we all absolutely loved, rooms were clean, spacious, bright and comfortable. Service was good both hotel... More

I found this hotel here on Trip Advisor. I had never been to Spain before and really knew nothing about Barcelona or where to stay. We were traveling with 4 kids, so we always need three rooms. I generally try to find nice but not luxury hotels so we don't spend a fortune on our accommodations. All I need is... More
