We booked this hotel as a last minute getaway and it was fantastic! :) We had not specified a twin or double room on booking and when we arrived were told we would have to have a twin for our first night (of 3) and then we would be moved. However, when we realised we had a 4th floor room... More

We visited this hotel in the middle of February 2014 to take in a barcelona football game. Originally we were booked into the Rialto hotel but due to there being no water at this hotel were "upgraded" to this hotel. Upon arrival we found that our passports had been stolen on the journey in. Not one member of staff could... More

Front desk very busy. Maybe understaffed. Our room faced onto a courtyard. If you don't want this make sure you ask. Rooms were clean & comfortable. We'll positioned to the old city and close to the beach.

We could not fault this hotel, the location was perfect, 5 minutes walk from the beginning/end of "The Ramblas", 10 minutes from "Port Vell" and 15 minutes from the beautiful beach, with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants on the way to each. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. We were able to store our luggage... More

Inside this is a modern hotel with a lot of historic character and a really comfortable feel, great staff, beautiful rooms. Located just off Las Ramblas, on a small quiet Placa where you can sit out and have a drink looking over the marina, two minutes walk to the port. The hotel is on Carrer Ample which has many bars...

My wife and I enjoyed our 3 night stay here. I did not know which area to book a hotel in and after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor I am very glad I chose this hotel and location. It is very close to the port and marina/ Rambla Del Mar, lots of nice shops and bar/restaurants in this area. It... More

This hotel is in a perfect spot for visiting Gaudi's buildings. It is a short walk to the metro station, an easy walk to several attractions, and also within reasonable walking distance of the seafood restaurants of Barcelonetta . We stayed in a room facing the square. It wasn't particularly noisy (I noted a previous reviewer said there were people... More

Helpful staff, very clean and not a bad location. However room quite small and basic and no bar/coffee lounge. No tea and coffee making facilities in the room either. The breakfast was dire. Okay if you like toast, yoghurt and a bit of ham but that's basically it; certainly not worth the 16 euros they were charging for it.

Stayed here January 2014, perfect location for exploring Barcelona. Breakfast was very expensive and very disappointing, not one to be recommended wished we had opted to go to one of the cafés next to hotel, fraction of the cost. Staff generally helpful, room basic but very clean, no tea and coffee facilities. Certainly not 4 star hotel, but location is... More
