Stayed at this hotel a while ago. However, it was good design taste (very Barcelona style!) and quality. Room was well distributed and furnished for its size. Bed was comfortable. All very clean. Breakfast, that is served in an underground dining room, was nice. Hotel personnel were helpful.

First of all the day manager Andreas was awesome. We were first given a deluxe room on the fifth floor which was nothing spectacular but fine, however when we returned that night the room smelled heavily of cigarette smoke and the noise from the street was ridiculously loud even for a city dweller who is used to traffic. And this... More

I spent, along with my fiancée, a prolonged week-end at this very chic boutique hotel. I was absolutely impressed with the artwork, from the lobby up to the rooms. Initially, we booked a standard room, but upon arrival, a very nice gentleman, from the reception, offered us the possibility to upgrade to a deluxe, for a small fee per night.... More

The room had a bedroom, bathroom (nice toiletries) and a small sitting room with a sofa (but no desk to work). I loved the artwork. The wifi wasn't working so I called reception who said someone would be right up. Half an hour later someone came - he was rude and snappy telling me that I had to connect to... More

My partner and I have returned from the Gran Derby earlier today. We stayed for one night but wished it was longer. Having never visited Barcelona before, we were unsure what to expect but from the moment we arrived in Barcelona we were treated to some of the best hospitality that we have ever experienced.

I arrived at the Hotel by taxi directly from Sans central train station. It was about a 5 minute drive from there The Hotel is not right in the middle of downtown, but still, pretty convenient for going anywhere. The 59 day bus/N12 night bus stops around the corner, and takes about 10 minutes to get to Ramblas. It is... More

I stayed with my son and a friend.

The first thing I want to mention is the friendliness of the staff, reception, breakfast and house keeping. Everyone greeted you with a warm smile which is unfortunately very rare. We stayed in a Luxury room, very good size, fresh, modern, clean. Location is good, 25 minutes walking distance to the center, or 10 minutes with taxi which costs nothing.... More

I'm rating Very Good because Average would be quite unfair. The room was indeed very nice, clean, stylish, clean and comfortable, with a great bathroom, except that on the first floor with a small window overlooking a dark inner courtyard, I felt like being in a cave rather that a sunny day in Barcelona.
