“Lovely hotel in great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

We spent 4 nights at this hotel & loved it. Great location by the Catedral & close to La Ramblas & other attractions. Modern design & room was very comfortable with good bed, good lighting, bathroom & air conditioning. We were on the 1st floor & overlooked a Vietnamese restaurant & no noise disturbance. We had breakfast at hotel once only at €18 pp & ate nearby other mornings for half the price but that's the choice we made. We walked to Sagrada Familia from there,about half an hour. Staff very friendly & helpful. Only problem was some lights weren't working in bathroom & entrance to room. We reported this & was to be fixed next day but didn't happen until second day & only one was fixed! Frustrating! We also had problems with the key not working & had to go back to reception to sort. We would recommend to others.

Room Tip: We were in Room 110 & happy with this.

Green Features: We were encouraged to be thrifty with water but we did get clean towels every day

We are usually loyal customers of another nearby hotel, but gave this one a try and were impressed!
The location is perfect for seeing Barcelona. Just off the cathedral square.
Staff are very friendly and helpful.
Rooms are large, stylish and well equipped. Huge bed!
Rooftop terrace and pool is ideal for escaping the crowds.
Will be back!

We loved this hotel. Great modern design, very comfortable beds, very clean, nice bathroom and bathtub. Loved the location right near the cathedral and walking distance to Las Ramblas, Metro, and many sights. We had no problem at all with noise-I did request quiet rooms. We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel as it was expensive. If you walk out the front door and go around the corner to the left, there is a cute breakfast place we ate at. There is also a small place called The Chocolate Box next to the hotel that has coffee, pastries, ice cream.

The customer service at this hotel was wonderful. Our airline lost one of our bags and wasn't very communicative about when/if it would arrive. The front desk staff kept calling the airline and were able to find out that our bag would arrive the next day. In addition, the bartender gave me ice every night for a twisted ankle. Would definitely stay here again.

We researched lots of hotels and landed on this one. We made the best choice. The staff was so accommodating and it was the perfect lication, practically right across from the Cathedral. We wished we could have stayed longer. Highly recommend based on location 2 blocks from La Rambla and the on and off bus. Great room and bathroom.

The location is tremendous, close to historic sites and wonderful bars & restaurants. The staff are excellent, with especially helpful reception/ concierge staff. The rooms are good and well equipped. There is a nice pool and sunbathing area on the roof. Could they do a better value breakfast? My only quibble.

When we decided to do our breakfast we decided to give an excellent breakfast à la carte so our guest did not have to stand up and that coud have as many choice as need it, and this is why is at this rate, that is a normal rate on a four star hotel in barcelona.
We hope to have the opportunity of welcoming you back again soon.

Small hotel adjacent to the old Cathedral in central Barcelona.Five minute walk to Ramblas and Metro.Comfortable beds,huge modern bathrooms.Tea and coffee making facilities.Small rooftop sundeck and pool which is shared with the pidgeons.
There is a restaurant on property but it was closed for lunch and dinner during our stay.

Where do we start...All the staff were friendly, professional and helpful. The caring attitude of the staff towards us just made this perfectly located hotel that much more better than most hotels.
The breakfast was quality offering a wide selection of food to cater for all tastes. The rooms were a good size, very clean with good shower pressure. The décor modern and the roof top pool offered a good view of the surrounding area.
The central location in the Gothic Quarter made walking to most places an easy and interesting stroll. lots of bars, eateries and quality street performers are to be found. Taxi's are near by and plentiful. You cant ask for much more in a hotel. Thank-you to all the staff who made our Barcelona experience that much richer.
