“Wicked”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

An amazing hotel!!! Very modern and chic.
The rooms are big and the beds are very comfortable. The view from the room is amazing. Ask to stay on a higher floor, the higher the better.
Location is perfect! Staff speaks English! 360 roof top is great to tan or hang out with a drink.

Highly recommend this hotel.

The room was very nice. Fancy interior and a great shower, though perhaps a little short on privacy as there is no separate bathroom. The toilet, at least, is hidden behind a sliding door. Great view both from our room on the 7th floor and from the roof.
The biggest plus for me was the location of the hotel, the proximity to la Rambla and the beach of course, but also the charming area of el Raval. Unlike some I didn't notice a single pimp or prostitute or had anything pick-pocketed, but simply had a lovely time wandering through narrow alleyways full of people (not all tourists) and charming little bars and restaurants and a wide array of refrigerator shops. The restaurant Cera 23, only 5 minutes away from the hotel, is highly recommended if you arrive late, remember to book at table in advance!

Amazing location! Amazing view from the rooftop! Amazing room! Loved it will definitely be coming back! Even in November we were able to sit on the rooftop with a glass of wine in shorts and t shirt watching the sun set!

We stayed here for four nights while on a city break in Barcelona. It is in a perfect location for sightseeing.
We chose not to add the breakfast to our stay and found plenty small cafes and bakers near by where we could pick up breakfast on the go.
The roof top bar gives fantastic views of the city and a lovely place to chill out....but the drinks aren't cheap up there!!
Our room was fantastic with amazing views...we were on floor 7.
Couldn't fault this great hotel.

The hotel is very close to La Rambla and Placa de Catalunya where the buses from the airport stop. Really unusual décor downstairs and the room. Was pleasantly surprised to find all little things one normally forgets to pack, like comb, razor and little shaving cream, toothbrush, etc. Breakfast was plentiful and great selection of all sorts of foods.
The 360 degrees view from the 11th floor offer fantastic city views.

Room Tip: the higher the better - better view from top floors

Booked a two night stay using our tesco club card points.This is our second trip to Barcelona so we new roughly where to head for.Hotel is about twenty minutes walk from the Placa da catalunya.
Were greeted by a very polite and freindly receptionist who gave us a room upgrade free of charge on the seventh floor.The rooms certainly have the wow factor,electric curtains,coffee maker,mood lighting,free safe to name a few,also the biggest double bed I have ever seen in my life.The walk in shower is fairly open plan but the glass is frosted enough to hide your modesty.
The highlight of the hotel though is the eleventh floor roof top terrace with free telescopes.The veiws are amazing day and night.
Dont worry if you have got a late flight home,ask at reception and they lock your bags behind reception.Asked if there was somewhere to freshen up and was helpfully informed that we could use facilities i the gym which included shower and towels.
Read before that area around hotel was a bit intimidating but did not find this the case day or night.Have walked in scarier places in England.Did not eat at the hotel but restaraunt looked very smart.Loads of places to eat near to hotel any way.
Were looked after from check in to check out time very wel,nothing was to much trouble and all our enquiries were answered politely by very knowledgeable friendly staff.
I believe this area of Barcelona is undergoing a major face lift.If this is true try this hotel before the prices go through the roof.This hotel for the standard and location is truly a bargain
Great two nights at a great hotel.

Room Tip: The higher the better.
