“Great Hotel in Gothic Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is a great hotel in the old town in a really well renovated old building. The rooms have character and are very spacious. Ours, on the first floor, had a really high ceiling. The large fridge and kitchenette are good if you want to make your own breakfast, as there's no breakfast room - you can order in breakfast, but it's not really worth it, better to go to a cafe, of which there are plenty nearby. The double-glazing was excellent and kept out most of the noise from the narrow street below. The bed was very comfortable. Air conditioning is very quiet. The shower was one of the best I've had in a hotel with rainwater, waterfall and normal shower options. Would definitely go back.

We got lucky when we found this hotel. It took a couple of minutes bag dragging as the taxi wasn't permitted to get into the street after a certain time but it was worth it. We asked for a double bed and extra pillows but we got much more. The room was a mini apartment with a small kitchen area, leather couches and even a coffee machine. It was quiet too although we were on the fourth floor. The view wasn't the best but the comfortable and spacious room made up for it. The hotel was positioned in the heart of the gothic section of the city and just off the rambla so easy walking to great attractions and shopping. The service at reception could not be faulted with our bags being carried to the room and great advice about local places to eat as well as some good security tips.

Room Tip: We had the fourth floor front and never heard street noise with the doors closed. The wooden floors...
