Love this hotel. The most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in with beautiful egyptian cotton sheets, suburb cleanliness, beautiful bathroom. Comfortable bar with lovely service. We stayed there as a base but wish it had been for longer than a weekend. We will return.

We stayed here based on reviews and were not disappointed. The location is great, right in the heart of La Rambla. However, the hotel is quiet and extremely comfortable. We upgraded to a corner room and were extremely happy. The room was large, the A/C was strong and everything was just nice. The staff were great, the indoor pool amazing... More

Right in the middle of town. If you like to walk around this it the perfect place. Loads of restaurants in area. Great bar on the roof with a pool. Wonderful view of the city. Full service. Rooms clean, big and nicely designed. Attentive staff.

Isn't it nice when you arrive travel weary at your smart and sophisticated hotel and are told that they are upgrading you. Not when it's from a nice quiet interior room to a noisy room on the street side. Barcelona bin men work through the night and most of them, apparently in the street under our rear facing room. They... More

Great location just off the Ramblas. Nice lobby area. Rooms are clean and nice, on the small side, but not unusual for a city hotel. Free wi fi in rooms. Excellent staff was very helpful. Would stay here again.

This hotel has everything you would want in a hotel. The food is great as well as the facilities. The roof top patio/pool area is spectacular and the service was fantastic. It was such a charming hotel and if you like something a little more traditional and cozy you will love it. I stayed here with my 19 yr old... More

Amazing hotel, amazing room, amazing location and amazing staff. What a fantastic stay we had in Barcelona. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this great city. The complementary bottle of cava the arrived on the morning of my partners birthday was an especially nice touch considering we hadn't even informed them. Thank you to the staff for that... More

As part of out Scenic Tours Paris to Barcelona River cruise stay three nights at this hotel. Beautifully decorated if a little dark in the corridors. Beautiful spa area in the basement, and the piece de resistance is the roof terrace. Lovely pool area great bar and terrific tapas. Our room 210 had a small outdoor terrace which was beautiful...

We had little support by the reception to upgrade to an offered package and to coordinate a Spa treatment. I was told to cancel the inital booking, to book a new package and I was given the e-mail adress of the spa centre and was told to organise myself. I would have expected a little more on site support, since... More
