“Very nice hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

We stayed here over a long weekend. The hotel is in an excellent location, 30 metres from the Gothic Cathedral, approx 5-10 minutes stroll from the Aerobus stop at Plaza Catalunya.
The room was really nice, modern and kept very clean. The toiletries were excellent and it also had a large selection in the mini bar. There was also a kettle and cups plus free tea, coffee and milk to brew a reviving cuppa.
All the staff we met were very nice which makes this a really good hotel.

A modern hotel, near the Ramblas and all the shopping, but on a quiet street. Perfect service and nice rooms with wooden floor and very modern bathrooms. Nothing fancy, but the design is modern and appealing.

Room Tip: Smoking and non-smoking rooms.

Spent two days here on my way to Rome and found this delightful hotel. It's nice and clean and cozy. Stayed on the 5th floor.
The hotel employees were very efficient and helped whenever they could. Easy to get around. No complaints. Thanks :-)

My wife and I have stayed at this wonderful hotel many times when we make our semiannual trips to Barcelona. It is perfect in every way. The rooms are not small, very clean and comfortable. The front desk service, manager, and service in general go out of the way to be always helpful and polite. And it is so very well located, a few feet from the Catedral plaza with two fine tapas bars, and always some kind of activity. The metro station is easily within walking distance, past good shopping areas, as is the famous La Rambla. And our favorite store, Desigual, has its back entrance directly across from the hotel's front door. So what's not to like? Nothing...and everything to like. We will be back soon.

My husband and I stayed for two nights at this hotel. The location is just in front of the historical catedral, so it was very easy to walk from the aerobus stop at the Catalonya plaza. We could see the wall painting of Picasso from the window see of the our room.

The staffs are very friendly and kind. The room we stay was quite large. We are totally satisfied at this hotel.

Good hotel. Stylish and no nonsense comfy rooms. The pool on the roof is really nice, lovely spot. It's certainly not my favourite hotel - the decor is somehow just not right, bit boring and the rooms too soulless. BUT all in all this is an amazing spot to stay and see the city. You could not get better and so I would definitely choose it again.

Room Tip: Yes looking to the courtyard is quite but I don't think anywhere in the hotel is that noisy
