“Great little boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Visited BCN to celebrate my mums 50th. Lovely hotel in an excellent location, within walking distance of all the amenities yet still quiet enough down a back street, so you are away from the hustle and bustle at night. The rooms are extremely well appointed with a great range of toiletries. The beds and pillows are also very comfy which ensure a good nights sleep! Breakfast was €18 each and of a good quality, cooked breakfasts are freshly done to order, the orange juice is fresh and so is the bread/croissants they provide. However, it is priced quite steeply for what you get, and literally as soon as you step out of the hotel, there is a wealth of cheaper but just as nice breakfast options. We found 'Chocolate Box' right next door to be great however it all depends on what you're looking for.
The only thing which let this hotel down was, despite booking interconnecting rooms months ago and our travel agent ringing up a week prior to our arrival to check, on arrival they initially said they couldn't provide this. When we expressed our discontent, the receptionist sorted it for us in an efficient manner however we had to change rooms 2 nights into our 6 night stay which was a bit of a hassle. Our second interconnecting rooms 303/304 were great however, there was a cupboard inbetween the rooms that emitted a very nasty smell, I think it may have been a septic tank, if the door was shut which wasn't very pleasant especially in the heat!

Stayed August 2015

The hotel is in an amazing location, so central to everything as previous reviews have mentioned; La Rambla, Catedral, shopping districts, restaurants, La Ribera, El Born, Placa Catalunya and the airport bus.

Staff very friendly and helpful and the free walking tour (we did the night one) a must!

Rooms modern and clean, just on the small side which is pretty standard for BCN.

Would definitely recommend and return.

This was a lovely hotel, the staff are very nice and friendly, and the rooms are modern, comfortable, and have tea and coffee making facilities. We found this to be a good location, right in fron of the Barcelona Cathederal which is beautiful, heaps of shops within five minutes, 10 minutes to Las Ramblas, and aprox 20 minutes to the Marina, 30 minutes easy walk to La Sangra Famila, and about 20 minutes to Le Arc De Triumph. the swiiming pool on the roof was nice and they had quite a few lazy boys.

Excellent choice if you want a 4-star hotel, and the location of the hotel is perfect. Only positive to say about staff, rooms, pool area and breakfast. We've spent several holidays in Barcelona and this is our top choice hotel. It is difficult to find a hotel with a better pool in the center of Barcelona in this price range (and a nice pool is great after spending time in the city).
You are perfectly located if you within short walking distance want all "main attractions" - shopping, beach, old town, restaurant areas, bus and train centers.

The hotel is situated near the cathedral and 5 minute walk to Las Ramblas. It is also only a 10 minute walk to the Airport bus stop and sightseeing bus stop. It is a boutique hotel with good facilities. The roof top swimming was great to come back to after a day of sightseeing. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Free wifi in hotel. Rooftop pool. Large rooms.
