This hotel is fantastic. Clean as a whistle. Trendy without being obnoxious. The MOST friendliest staff. They are willing to help you with anything. The rooms are a good size for a big city. The beds are comfortable. The 3 biggest pros about this place are the cleanliness, location, an staff. I cannot stress the staff thing enough. When we... More

Stayed here last year and loved the hotel so much. The location was perfect for getting to el Borne and the Gothic quarter, where all of the bars and restuarants are. It was no more than a 10/15 minute walk to the beach, but we found we preferred the pool to the beach anyway. The hotel was immaculate and staff... More

Perfect for short on time but lots of money. Polite helpful clean. Adequate for time place and money. Not a place for more than a night or two only not a place to spend any quality amount of time. Probably return all about timing .

Staff couldn't be better. Fantastic location. Very clean facility. Stay in the back of the building, if possible. Automated shades in the rooms! Walking distance to two days worth of intensive investigating/ vacationing. Don't miss the Boqueria, Barceloneta, Picasso Museum. The tour buses across the way are a great way to 'scan' the city ahead of time and pick out... More

Let me start with the sweet side (dulce) of the experience. Hotel is perfectly located. Near the metro, bus stops, hop on hop off bus station, placa catalunya, la rambla, cathedral and basilica. Restaurants and shopping areas nearby, plenty to choose from. The swimming pool on top of the roof is great, view is amazing. The stay was made sweeter... More
