“Great hotel for city views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights to experience Barcelona. It's based in a complex containing the World Trade Centre that extends into the harbour. It's position means that rooms either have panoramic views of the city and part of the harbour or face internally into a courtyard overlooking the World Trade Centre offices. We opted for a Premier Room which was on the 5th floor (506) which had fantastic city views. Previous reviewers have mentioned noise from visiting ships etc and yes the Balearic car ferries dock alongside the complex. You notice a little low rumbling noise from them but its hardly intrusive and they all departed by late evening. There is also a historic cable car that runs high above the hotel and the gantry support for this is immediately in front of the hotel. It will be seen from all rooms that face the city but it didn't bother us and is just part of the scene. The bedroom was spacious with a very comfortable king sized bed and well equipped bathroom with bath and separate shower. We would have liked to have had bath robes and tea/coffee facilities in the room but otherwise it was perfect.
The public rooms lack atmosphere but the service in the bar area and at breakfast was good. Quality of food was also excellent although expensive.
The open top tour buses stop just outside the hotel but otherwise its a 10 minute walk to the Metro and Las Ramblas. We liked this as it meant that at night we were away from the 'action' so could sleep easily but were still close enough that good restaurants/bars etc were in walking distance.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view face the city. The top floor is the 8th but anything above the 4th floor facing th...

This is a lovely hotel but not as convenient for cruises as you might think. If you are getting one of the smaller ferries to Spanish islands then it is right by the dock but if you are getting a big cruise ship (e.g. NCL, Celebrity, etc) don’t expect to walk right onto the ship as the hotel is some way away from the larger cruise ship terminals and whilst just about walkable the docks are not ‘pedestrian friendly’ so you will still need to rely on either a taxi from the hotel, or the dock shuttle bus which stops at the Christopher Columbus terminal (a few mins walk away). With this in mind you might as well stay nearer La Ramblas as if you stay in the bottom third of Las Ramblas you will be closer to the tourist area but just as close to the port shuttle bus / taxis. The one great thing about the location is the hop on/hop off buses stop within 100m of the hotel.

The hotel itself if nice with a modern design and large comfy rooms. Our superior room was very large with large bed, large bathroom with both shower and spa bath. Has a little outdoor pool with great views as well as an indoor spa Jacuzzi and well equipped fitness room/gym. Food was great and bar and lounge areas nice too.

A great hotel, but not as convenient for the cruise ships as the map might suggest. Location wise its just as easy to get to the cruise ships from a hotel in the bottom third of Las Ramblas as it is from this hotel.

Stayed for three nights and could not have been happier with the hotel, facilities, service. Good location at end of Las Ramblas, ideal for marina, shopping centre, bus tour and all facilities. Room was spacious, very well equipped, and very clean with choice of pillows, good towels and toiletries, lovely bathroom. Breakfast was superb, with everything you could wish to eat and excellent attentive service from waiting staff. Evening meal and tapas were great. Would not hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for room with balcony

I stayed for 3 nights with a friend. The room was a good size with lots of storage and a big bathroom.

The breakfast buffet was excellent with fresh juice and a huge variety of breads, pastries etc.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the bottom of the Ramblas and 15 minutes to the marina so it is all nice and central.

I really enjoyed my stay and would recommend to others.

We stayed here for only 2 nights at the end of a river cruise and we found it to be very convenient for sightseeing. The hop-on/hop-off bus stops nearby; there is a huge shopping mall across the way (about a 10-15 minute walk) which was even open on Columbus Day - a national holiday. There are several restaurants inside the mall as well. The hotel restaurant serving breakfast was very good but the dinner choices are limited. There is just one restaurant/bar combo serving tapas all day and one restaurant which does not open until 7:30pm. We ate at both and found the food to be very good although pricey. Rain stopped us from venturing out both nights - although we did have a nice lunch in Placa Real at Rossini's!
I would recommend this hotel even though it's not in the middle of the Gothic Quarter or on Las Ramblas. It's right at the cruise ship pier which is extremely convenient if that's what you need.

Perfect hotel to stay during your visit to Barcelona.
Perfect location ( sea view) and near the most famous street ( La Rambla).
And those who are interesting in shopping, will find its location is near to most of shopping malls and Metro stations too.
Rooms were really great, clean and large.
Breakfast was fine with different varieties suitable for most cultures.
Excellent and supportive staff who are ready to help you at any time.

Went for a short city break with my teenage son. From the start the staff were attentive, welcoming and very friendly.
The reception area was small, not grand but adequate. The room was lovely. Large, very clean, the decor was lovely, the bathroom was our favourite - they supplied the usual soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash- all replenished daily. Slippers are supplied (the floors in the rooms are marble). there is a safe big enough for a laptop, a mini bar and a big balcony.
The view from our balcony was outstanding. It had a good gym with a hot tub - every time we went there we were the only ones there!! In the gym was a big bowl of fruit, which you were welcome to eat from. I was slightly disappointed the sauna and swimming pool were not functional when we were there, but I guess there always has to be maintenance time.
There is free wifi in the bar/coffee area with a few laptops if you haven't brought your own.
The breakfast was the best I have ever had anywhere! My son loved it. The assortment was huge, I can't imagine anybody not able to find something to their liking. Hot, cold, meats, cheese, cereal, fruit - too much to mention and I couldn't do it justice! The staff were so attentive, everything was very fresh and constantly replenished. The hotel was with in easy walking of Las Ramblas and the beach - the walk to the beach is along the esplanade with musicians, restaurants and shops on one side and boats on the other. It really exceeded my expectations, I would recommend it and I hope to return - what a great experience.
PS they even let us check out at 3:30 with no extra charge :D
