4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here on a long weekend city break. It was a 10 min walk straight up Balmes from Plaza Catalunya where the airport bus dropped us off. The room was spacious and the bathroom too. We stayed at the back so had no problem with noise. The staff were friendly and helpful with our enquiries. The rooftop bar and... More

Only minus- shower cap broke down first day and wasn't repaired through all stay (4 days). Plaza Catalunya is around 10 min. of walk. Plenty of... More

It's not far from the north entrance of the Passeig de Gracia station, which is where the overland trains to and from the airport stop, so getting to the hotel was quite easy. You can also walk...

I'd normally stay at Axel but wanted something different for a change. This was a great alternative only a couple blocks from there. Very warm welcome, they knew my name as I came through the door. Quite spacious room and very clean. Beds are firm, but no more so than anywhere else you'll generally find on the continent. Had seen... More

We had a lovely stay here. The room was very clean on arrival and this high standard was maintained each day by the maid. It is a close walk to good restaurants and local café's for breakfast. The staff on the front desk are happy to help with reserving tables at a restaurant for you and calling a taxi. We... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July 2014. This hotel is well-situated in the city- it's in L'Eixample area, which is quieter than Las Rambas & Ciutat Vella, but still close enough to walk to and from (it's about 20 min. walk from the hotel to the Cathedral; and about 20 min. walk to La Sagrada Familia; 10 min....
