three star hotel with good location. When we arrived at the hotel they said in the room is two beds too much like in storage but tomorrow we pick up those from your room -never happend. We had not a view, light comes only from lightwell -so the room was dark, but still the hotel was value for money. Large functional bathroom. Breakfast was very good three star breakfast.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

I first stayed here in 2008 and was very impressed. As my wife wanted to go to Barcelona for our 1st wedding anniversary I booked in here. She was just as impressed as I had been. The room was very clean as was the bathroom. The buffet breakfast was superb such an excellent choice of cold meats, cheeses fresh fruit and pastries.

Room Tip: I have stayed in both the front and rear of this hotel and both rooms are good so in my mind it does...

Just got back from my stay at the splendid hotel and everything was good apart from the staff and the fact the walls were really thin and could hear alot. The location was very good but the attitudes from the staff at reception was very poor, apart from that had a good time

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and had an amazing time! The hotel was really easy to get to from the airport, only a couple of minutes walk from the bus stop.

The hotel was modern and clean and breakfast provided a wide variety.

The city was very easily accessible from the hotel. There are a number of restaurants in the local area if you don't feel like walking too far. The hotel recommended a tapas place with a discount. The food was brilliant, if a little pricey.

I would definitely stay here again as, apart from a slightly curt receptionist which could just have been down to a bad mood, I couldn't fault the hotel!

This hotel is located in a good but not great location. There are few good restaurants/bars in the immediate vicinity butbthere are many within a 15 - 20 minute walk. La Ramblas is 15 minutes on foot and the main 'Gaudi sights' are also within walking distance. Universitat metro stop is nearby and Airport Bus stops and leaves from Plaza Catalunya which is also close. The hotel rooms are a decent size,quiet but a little dated. Breakfast is OK but nothing special.
The front desk staff are friendly and quite helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms facing away from the street are much quieter.

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and had an enjoyable stay. It was very easy to get to from the airport, you take the bus and get off at Plaza Universitat and it's a 2 minute walk away. There is a metro station at Plaza Universitat too and you're also only a 5-10 minute walk from Plaza Catalunya and the top of La Rambla which for us was an ideal location to explore the city from. We were pleasantly surprised, having booked an economy room, that when we opened the door to our room it wasn't a box and actually seemed very spacious. However, I am not sure it was actually an economy room since the hotel website went to such great lengths to explain how much smaller the rooms were...We didn't have a view but weren't really bothered, it's a city afterall. The room had two large single beds, wardrobe, desk, chair and tv and a large bathroom with sink, bath/shower, bidet and toilet. It was all very clean and comfortable and you couldn't fault it. The only annoying thing was the hairdryer where you have to continually hold the button down to make it work but these seem common in hotels in Europe anyway!
We paid slightly extra when we booked to have breakfast as we didn't want to waste part of the morning looking for somewhere to eat. Breakfast had a good variety of cold meat and cheese, pastries and cakes, yogurts and bacon and scrambled eggs as well as tea and coffee and was always being restocked.
We found all the staff in the hotel to be polite and helpful, particularly those at reception, and had an enjoyable stay. This hotel isn't a luxury stay but for a comfortable, clean base in the heart of Barcelona you can't fault it.
