After 5 weeks of intense travel I needed a little break so booked a night here so that I could relax somewhere quiet for 24 hours. This is a lovely, quiet little hotel and I felt recuperated when I left. My room was nice and felt clean (although mini bar area was a bit dusty) and I thought it was... More

We always stay here now when we are in Barcelona. It is quiet and friendly and close enough to walk to nice bars and restaurants. The staff are exceptionally professional and helpful. Great showers and a good night's sleep. We recommend it highly.

This is an excellent hotel with helpful staff. The rooms were decorated to a high standard and were spotlessly clean. The area is quiet but close to the tourist bus route and ten mi Utes to the nearest metro. Would return

Very comfortable hotel. Rooms are not big but they try their best in making them functional and feeling spacious. Part of the SLH, however, it is probably at the very lower end of what it can offer. It is very good value though. Not particularly close to the metro, but there is taxi rank just outside always with waiting cabs.... More

We stayed for a couple of days in that hotel and found it via their own website - where images show a beautiful, big with a big ambition to luxury hotel. when we arrived we saw a scrubby, trashy, 'used-to-be-popular-maybe-in-the-90s' hotel, where rooms are stuffed and smelly, furniture is old. But main part its dark everywhere. We asked to move... More

Enjoyable stay, very helpful reception staff. Very clean throughout. Close to bus and metro stops into the 'main' centre. Nice pool area, if a little small. Didn't have breakfast as thought 15 Euros was a bit pricey. Definitely recommend though.

This hotel is just off the 'diagonal ' and thus easy to catch buses/ metro to anywhere in Barcelona. The hop pn/ off bus stop is just up the street and there are patisseries and restaurants close by. Even though the pool is small, it was still lovely to come home and have a swim after a hot day. The... More
