“Lovely hotel with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

The room was well appointed, lovely hotel with good service. Everything was clean and nice. I liked the modern design of the hotel. Ideal location close to the beach and the olympic port. Close enough to walk everywhere including the beautiful Barceloneta.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We had a weekend stay as a couple part of a group of 20.(not a business trip but a trip organised by one a company which our partners worked for) The hotel accomomodated a private party for us and had numerous waiters ensuring that our glass was never empty. This was a fantastic hotel, the staff were all friendly and extreemly helpful making the stay even more pleasurable.
The room was brilliant, and the bathroom facilities could not have been any better.
Would reccomend this to anyone.

Nice staff, rooms and good service. Close to metro and the old city. Ocean view form roof-terrace and selected rooms. Recommended for both business and relaxation. Swimmingpool on the roof with magnificent view of the ocean.

This hotel is very close to Port Olimpico, about 15 minutes walk from the bottom of La Ramblas and a couple of minutes walk from the metro and the tourist bus stop.

The hotel itself is in excellent condition. It's a modern property and is very stylishly furnished. Rooms are a good size, not big but not small either. Bathrooms are large and the separate rain shower was great - the type of shower you don't want to get out of!

Breakfast was included in my rate through Expedia and it was really worthwhile having if it's included, a large choice and good quality.

The one thing that stands out in this hotel is the staff. They were so friendly, and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for them, especially as we were traveling with our 2 year old.

One minor gripe is their air-conditioning doesn't go low enough which made the room a bit uncomfortable overnight.

P.S. there is a lovely cafe next door which serves lovely food and coffees, cheap too!

Room Tip: Stay on other side of building from the main road.

This hotel is a long way from the city centre. The metro stop is reasonably close, but you need to walk a fair distance within the station to actually get to a platform. This is the same for return trips back to the hotel. I would advise staying closer in if possible to reduce travel time. The staff at the hotel were ok, the gym area is poor and has limited equipment. When we arrived, the room was extremely warm and the air-conditioning was faulty. The price was reasonable, internet access in the lobby free, but the breakfasts are very expensive. If you are looking for cheap eats and drinks, walk out the front door, turn right and walk about 600-800 metres following the beach and then cross the main road. There is a large shopping complex with a good size supermarket there.

My partner and I have just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay at this excellent Hotel.
We were upgraded to a VIP Room (444) as it was an anniversary present from my girlfriend,
and the room was great. We also had Cava and chocolates given to us which was a lovely touch and really appreciated.Nice lounge area, Very stylish bathroom with additional shower, Roger & Gallet toiletries.The bed was very comfortable and we slept really well.
The breakfast was served from 7am and it was superb, couldn't fault it at all. The staff were all very pleasant and helpul the service very good.
There are 2 great pools, but we didn't have time to use them, and the weather wasn't great unfortunately.
We liked the location of the hotel. Very close to the beach and Marina, where there was some lovely restaurants. We didn't use the buses, but walked everywhere. La Ramla is about a 30 minute walk along the front. Gaudi's Sagrada Família is about the same distance. This was our first visit to Barcelona and we really enjoyed it. We hope to return and would certainly stay at this hotel if we do. Highly recommended.

We chose this hotel to be out of the crowds in Las Ramblas close to the beach bus and metro. It has two nice pools the sea view room was good and the breakfast here was excellent! The staff were very helpful the buses stop right outside the hotel so for 2 euro or so you get around. A walk across the street and in two minutes you are at the beach restaurants five minutes more and the Marina Restaurants are at you disposal. Easy walk to the Metro! Friendly helpful staff. Our Bathroom was very nice and we had no problems but if you are larger sized make sure they have a room that will let you access the toilet!!

Room Tip: Its up to you but the sea view have a balcony and sliding door with views over the pool, if just wan...
