I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, the location is just great, walked to the beach in 30 minutes, walked to the La Sagrada Familia in 20 minutes, walked to the Park Guell in 50 minutes, there is a shopping mall a minute walking distance. Hotel staff was extremely nice and spoke great English. We were upgraded to a... More

The hotel was sleek and modern with great rooms and public areas. The receptionists were very helpful. Wifi was slow but free to use during the stay. The one real downside was the lack of sun loungers at the rooftop pool. Unless you were prepared to queue for a lounger before 10am, you could not get a lounger for the... More

A very lovely hotel. Rooms were very modern and cleaned every day plus staff was always friendly. Do use the public transport though - tram stop is literally outside the hotel and tube station is within 5 minutes walk. The view from the rooftop is amazing, however you will rarely find any available sunbeds.

Would not return to this hotel. Where to start..... Location: Hotel is beside the Agbar tower which is right next to the Glories metro stop. Across the road from the Hotel is a shopping centre. The hotel is too far out to walk to the main centre of Barcelona therefore we used the metro a lot! In saying that the... More

We checked in after our cruise to spend two days in Barcelona. Our room was not ready until almost 3:30 in the afternoon. We were given a room on the 9th floor and we were never able to get it cool enough. The beds were like boards and the glass doors surrounding the bathroom left no privacy for the person... More

Random thoughts: Wifi was frustrating because it seemed to need re-logging on 'kubi' (used by hotels and airports in Spain) every time a new session was started, despite offering free usage for up to 30 days. If a codeword was issued by the desk, one for each device is needed. Room was spacious, modern, crisp. Good sized firm bed. Extra... More

Second time we stayed at this hotel and quality of service and hotel remained the same. Desk personnel extremely friendly and helpful. The terrace bar was excellent and Dani the bartender was one of the best we have met. He was friendly, helpful, and gracious. The food in the dining room was perfect and the waiter was great.

Travelled in July 2014 as two 19 year old friends, we stayed for 4 nights. As soon as we got into our room we gasped with how nice it was. We went to explore the roof terrace which was equally nice, brilliant views. You almost forget you are in a massive city like Barcelona because the hotel feels so personal.... More

Beautiful hotel with lovely, clean rooms, great views and a fantastic rooftop pool and bar (only complaint being there just aren't ever enough sunbeds). Maid service faultless and staff helpful at reception. Although hotel is a little out of the way, you have a beautiful view next door to the Torre Agbar and Sagrada Familia is visible from the hotel... More
