I booked this hotel for its location - central to El Born and Barri Gotic and a 20 minute walk from the beach. I stayed for four nights at the end of November. The hotel deserves its 5 Star rating. The design, staff and services are excellent and we just didn't want to leave the hotel - we definitely would... More

Great hotel and a perfect location. Loved the rooftop infinity pool. Amazing views. Large room with beautiful big window. Comfortable bed. Pool needs to be heated during cooler months so it is not so cold.

Stayed here for 4 nights during a business trip. The first night was by far the worst as the street noise (and building work) going on adjacent to my corner room made sleeping very difficult. It was only in the morning that I discovered one of my windows was not fully closing. A quick request to reception got this sorted... More

This is a very nice hotel right in the centre of the city. We received a very warm welcome and throughout our stay the staff could not do enough to help us. Places and directions with a map provided by them with suggestions of where to eat and visit were very forthcoming. You can walk everywhere you want to visit... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for sharing the pros and cons of your stay. A room for 3 adults could be tight especially when sharing the bathroom. All rooms in the hotel are made for double occupancy although we can fit an extra bed for a third person ( adult or children). We recommend having connecting rooms so there is room... More
