“Wonderful hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for 4 nights to end our adventure in Spain. The hotel is located away from the major sights of Barcelona, but it is very close to the Magic Fountain, Plaza Espanya and Montujic Castle. A quick 7 minute walk takes you to the metro station which gets you to the heart of the city in just a few minutes. Our room was large, very well appointed with comfortable bedding and pillows. We slept like babies. The bathroom is also large with a separate tub, shower and toilet area. There was a coffee maker and a kettle in the room which was an added touch. However, the coffee mugs did not fit under the spout of the coffee maker. No big deal though. Every staff member we spoke with was polite and courteous. We loved having the business centre to check in for our flight home and printing our boarding passes. I have no hesitation recommending this hotel.

Even though this hotel is a bit far from city centre, the quality of rooms at the price offered makes up for the distance. We like to walk a bit so the trek from the hotel to the nearest metro stop (10 min) was enjoyable for us. It was wonderful to come back to a luxury room after a full day of sightseeing and shopping. The breakfast was great as well. We had a small issue while checking in as there was only one a attendant and we had to wait for almost 20 min. However she made up with offering us free drinks at the bar and an upgrade !

Front desk was very helpful and always answered my questions with so much information. room was modern with great amenities . Modern bathroom . Turndown service with cute little sheep cookies was my favourite personal touch ,Close to subway stops and was able to get a good nights sleep in the luxurious comfy bed .

Excellent hotel with luxurious service and furnishings. Large room and bath. First class amenities and service. Convenient with good services within walking distance, although not walking distance to visitor sites. Metro is a few blocks away which is convenient.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a city view.

This hotel is located perfectly and the price was reasonable for the time we stayed. The metro and train stations are super close. We like to walk but when we got tired we jumped on the metro. Also it is close to the Olympic Center, Jardins de la Maternitat, Magic Water Fountain and National Art Museum of Catalunya. We were given a quiet room on the 6th floor. There was not much of a view but the room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was huge! There was a separate bath and shower. And the toilet had its own door. The toiletries were wonderful too.The pillows where body pillows and a bit uncomfortable but we asked for regular pillows. The only thing that made our stay 4 stars is "almost" every day we had to ask for an extra towel set - as there was three of us and they put towels for two. Free WiFi was reliable and good.

Room Tip: Bring your own hair dryer. The hotel's hair dryer has no real power.

This hotel was great. All the amenities, huge room exceptional little touches like the aromatics and counting sleep cookies if you have trouble adjusting from the time change. The staff were exceptional and highly responsive. The location is very convenient-not right in the heart of the Rambla but two blocks from Placa D'Espanya subway so easy access to everything.
