“nice quiet location in a busy city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Perfect location, only 15 mins walk to the busy centre and la rambla, so your in for a good nights sleep! Breakfast is great, nice variety and overall great service. The staff are super friendly and helpful and the rooms are a decent size. A little pricy but would probabley stay again. :-)

The hotel is very conveniently located. It is close to the subway and the bus stop for the airport bus. A large supermarket is right next door, which was handy. Also the Placa d'Espanya is a short walk away, which was convenient for the mall, hop on-hop off bus, fountain and National Gallery.

The room was clean and comfortable. The decor is a little dated, but not really an issue. It had your typical mod cons, such as flat screen tv, Wi-Fi and sufficiently powerful air conditioner. Having a balcony was also really nice! The bathroom looked relatively modern and the shower was nice and powerful. However, there wasn't a lock on the door, but we were considerate of each other, so it wasn't too much of an issue for us. The kitchenette had most of the typical equipment you would need, except for bowls for cereal, but you could get some disposable ones from the supermarket, next door to the hotel.

The staff were always very friendly and helpful. They even left a little dish of sweets and a note in our room on our 2nd last day.

The rooms were great! The best part of it was that it had a kitchen included - be sure to take advantage of this! Although, the walls are quite thin. Luckily, our neighbors were quiet and we couldn't really hear them. We heard stories that someone had to move rooms due to the noise. If the noise is too loud, I think the staff will help you move rooms. Also, the rooms are not that clean. It is acceptable but there is still dust around the corners. Not a big problem though! There is a huge supermarket downstairs right next to the hotel and a few smaller ones around. The staff were lovely and gave us a few maps and suggested a few places for us to visit. The location is a few minutes away from the metro station, two or three blocks. Espanya (only one station away) is only a 10 minute walk (or less!) there is a huge shopping mall with a food court if you would like to go there. But I suggest to eat at the street cafés instead (outside!!) Overall, a great experience!

Room Tip: If you chose to get a balcony room, request one facing the street. We had one facing the back and it...

The staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast buffet is awesome. We will definitely come back. The metro station is close by. The only problem was that the wifi didn't work on the third floor.

Central location, clean rooms, decent bathroom, bed ok, only complaint wifi on higher floors is useless. Nothing more worth saying about a place like this. It doesn't need 200 characters to sum up some places. Tripadvisor please note.

I have never received such consistent great service from a hotel staff! I dealt with so many different front desk staff members and every single one of them was very helpful and very friendly. I love how they seem to jump at a chance to serve.

Unfortunately the room quality is very bad! The walls are so thin, you can hear the people talking next door, you can hear the cars n scooters driving by and people walking upstairs in their rooms. When we stayed there was also construction at the next building so needless to say we did not get any sleep. The beds are bad. No cushion n when my husband turned during sleep the bed squeaked which woke me up! The bathroom smelled like it needed some Lysol to disinfect or bleach! The shower/tub is not designed for tall people. I'm short n medium size and i felt like the shower was a very tight squeeze. Do not open the window that looks into the center of the hotel. It's a scary sight! They should plant something there and wash down those walls!

Room Tip: We booked three rooms. None of them good. They need to change the beds and make the walls and ceilin...
