“for the perfect citytrip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

We stayed at the hotel for four days. Many things are at walking distance. If you fly to Barcelona, take the shuttle bus to Plaça de Catalunya. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the bus stop. The staff is very friendly. The rooms are clean and profite everything you need. We recommend this hotel to everyone.

I had a group of 7 business people staying at the hotel. They were very impressed with the design but also with the very friendly service.
My colleagues said that they would choose the hotel also if he were to travel on private holidays to Barcelona. The hotel is located in one of the best spots in Barcelona.

We arrived on February 7th, 2014 and stayed 2 nights. We had booked 2 double rooms. We took the bus from the airport and got off at the placa de catalunya where we found the hotel right around the corner. It is perfect for city tours. The rooms are small but clean and very sufficient plus we had a very nicely furbished showerroom.
Breakfast was sufficient and served as a buffet style. Staff at reception was very friendly and gave us some advice on where to eat. We missed a sit in lobby however the hotel was exactly as described and in a perfect position for visiting any of the sights. We can recommend this hotel

Stayed for two nights in room 605. Very nice clean and reasonably spacious. Modern furniture, very quite although overlooking the street below. Full (hot) breakfast with everything you look for.
The best is the fantastic location right on the 20 seconds to the Catalunia Square and right on the edge of the Gothic quartet.
Extremely polite and well informed stuff.
We will definitely return !

The aerobus coaches from the airport take 35 mins to the big square (Placa de Catalunya) where you will be able to access the metro and a lot of buses to various locations including Park Guell.

The hotel is 2 min walk from square. The old town begins on the other side of the road and goes down to the beach/marina/port. La Rambla runs from the marina up to the square. You can walk to the cathedral and other places of interest or use the metro/buses.

The hotel is excellent with very helpful staff. We had breakfast in Pan & Company (located about 2 mins from hotel) for around 4 euros. The hotel breakfast is 9 euros.
The hotel and our double room were clean and comfortable.
The staff were excellent and spoke english.

Room Tip: All rooms are well sound proofed.

We arrived to Barcelona on a Saturday around midday and were able to check in straightaway.

We had an executive room on the second floor (206) with a balcony overlooking the main street outside the hotel. Initial impressions of the room were that it was large, light, plenty of electrical sockets etc. The bed was comfortable.

Negatives were that there is no hot drink making facility, the room was looking a little tired after a few years use and some of the design features were definitely form over function i.e Sink in a cupboard and no privacy in the toilet with only a thin piece of glass separating it from the main room. Towels felt cheap. Carpet was dirty.

The toilet seat had fallen off and not been properly fixed back on.

The room had an internet radio/media system. This was temperamental and started to wake us up at 7am without us setting it!!! Not good...

We had breakfast on the first morning. It was busy, mainly stocked with substandard pastries, fruit, bread and cold meats. All the hot food had run out when we arrived but when it did arrive it looked pretty horrible so I didn't bother. The coffee was awful. Not really worth the 9 euro (each) that they charged. We ate out the other mornings for much less and had better food (plenty of places close by).

One afternoon we arrived back to our room and it was still being serviced - I think this is too late. The maid apologised and we had to wait outside 15 mins for her to finish. In her rush he hadn't changed the sheets and left our bin halfway down the corridor

The location of the hotel was great - 5 mins walk from the airport bus and close to all the big attractions, we walked almost everywhere

So overall a disappointment, and we would not come back.

Great location, great design and friendly staff with perfect English. Really swish executive room with huge walk in shower room, 42 inch flat screen TV, superbly comfortable bed, great air con, safe and fridge. It's the design of the rooms and the coolness of the place that makes it special. Breakfast also very good apart from dry scrambled eggs and served till 12 if you've had a late night. Worth getting the executive room and in January/February it's a bargain price. Perfectly located for walking to the old city or taking the subway further afield. Even in early Feb I had perfect blue sky and a reasonably warm sun. No wonder the locals look so happy.

Room Tip: Face the courtyard rather than the street if you can.
