Stayed here for 3 nights in August 2014. Junior Suites was excellent. Very clean. Breakfast was good. Handily placed near Avenue Diagonal. Buses and Metro nearby. Staff are friendly and informative. Within walking distance of the Camp Nou about 20 minutes away but the bus stop is nearby. Quiet area. Restaurant next door is very reasonable. There is a small... More

If you prefer to stay a little away from the central tourist district, this hotel is perfect. Just a 10 minute walk to the Metro station, even less to one of the main bus lines, so it's easy to get where you want to go, but nice and quiet (by Barcelona standards). The hotel has been recently renovated and refurnished... More

Great hotel and great staff. Located in a nice part of the city; walking distance to many nice shoppes, restaurants, and Camp Nou (the soccer stadium). Reasonable rates.

Great choice of hotel - very good value, nice rooms and good service and for the price paid it would be hard to complain. My only comment is the lack of desk in the room and slow internet, was hard to do some work here but all in all ok.

If you mind staying out of touristy areas, this hotel is a great choice. It is not far - about 6 eur taxi ride to the centre, there is abundance of great restaurants and wine shops and the rooms are tastefully designed and very comfortable, apart from the fact that there are no desks so if you need to work......

what service they could not do more , , and the pool on after a hot day is fantastic, room split level room was good when you have kids , and the power shower is to die for. Breakfast 17 euros a bit much for me but I don't eat large breakfasts.

Stayed here with my wife September 2013. Really nice rooms but sound does travel through the hotel especially if you are near the lobby area. There was a very noisy reception party on one night of our stay. Door slamming from other rooms was incredibly intrusive. We could hear next doors shower running.
