Very well located in a quiet square near the bottom of the Ramblas and close to boats and sea. Using an old building (Palace of the Medinaceli family) the interior has been rebuilt with public areas of a fine modern design. Our room was light and airy with a spacious bathroom....both well used but need of some refurbishment...............particularly curtains and... More

The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of the city. The major sights, La Rambla, the beach - everything is easily accessible on foot. The rooms are ok but the breakfast is for Austrian 4-star standards pretty poor. So I would advise to book room only and have breakfast in one of the numeros cafes in the surroundings.

What a nice surprise. Its location, right near the harbour area, is fantastic. But there's more. The room was excellent. Modern, tidy, comfortable. Breakfast included in the deal as well. The hotel is also close to numerous eateries. Overall a great find.

We stayed 6 nights there. As we just wanted to enjoy the Barcelonata Beach for these 6 days, we preferred this hotel as it was very close to the beach,you just need to walk for 15 minutes. The hotel room was ok but most of the rooms were not getting sunlight so we had to turn on the light even... More

My teenage son and I stopped for 2 nights in August. We loved everything about the hotel. Location - 2 mins from La Ramblas, 15 mins walk from Estacio de Franca, although with hindsight we wished we had got the bus from the airport rather than use the train. Our room had a very small balcony and we could open... More
