Generally a good modern and clean hotel. Would normally rate higher, but there's a problem with the air conditioning. Reception explained that the system is either set to cool or heat the rooms, and because it's winter it is currently set to heat. That sounds logical but we really struggled to keep the temperature at a comfortable level on sunny... More

Dear JBLALondon Happy New Year and thank you for your review on your last stay. I am sorry to read about your bad experience with the A/C in the room, and I’m sorry that this is the motive for not rating the hotel higher points.

Stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon in 2011. Fantastic location, we were able to walk to the beach and back. There are a lot of restaurants and bars on the same street. Getting a taxi into town or out towards the marina is very easy. Clean and comfortable, can't ask for much more.

We were definitely satisfied with all the service in this hotel. Everything was clean, helpful emmploees and very tasty food. It is a bit far from the subway but very close to the see instead, so we had very beautiful view on the sea.

I checked out of this hotel earlier today after staying four nights for a business trip. I chose this hotel because it was within walking distance of the conference center, and I got a great price on an ocean-view room. I arrived around 9:45am assuming I'd have to wait hours for my room. The staff was very polite and gave... More

Rooms with a sea view are also overlooking the 6 lane ring road, so noisy. Turning on the "air conditioning" to cool the room down without opening the window might be a problem, as although the instructions suggest the AC will cool the room, it actually heats it up .... so, then you have to open the window and put...

It is a 15 minute walk to the CCIB conference centre which is opposite a vast shopping centre. It is a taxi ride to the Ramblas and traffic in Barcelona can be dreadful so... More
