BEfore selecting this Hotel, Me and my wife went through many websites for reviews. Tripadvisor who we trust gave a many negative reviews but I took the chance and booked this Hotel.
We did our own research also which is always advisable.
The infamous Fee Shuttle, well I was dreading this and me and my wife were unable to work the phones at the airport lol luckily a man next to me was also contacting Fira and was fluent in Spainish. We were told 20 minutes and shuttle turned up in 10 minutes. Excellent.
Checking in wasnt an ordeal quick and easy and got our cards.
There was a card in the room explaining the booking shuttle for trip to Espanya which was straight forward. So PEOPLE complaining of lack of information was pretty Unfair.
Many people complained abt the Beds facing the door, wasnt a big deal but have to agree the beds on wheels were annoying and two beds connected wasnt appreciated at all. The beds werent very comfortable but we got used to them eventually.
Light switches are tricky and need to get used.
We never ate in the Hotel, but beers were price reasonably so had a few beers during our stay, wasnt happy they didnt show BArcalona footie matches which was scandalous.
We had water replenished in our mini fridge on a daily basis which was nice, soft drinks mentioned never arrived.
No door on the shower was a little suprising but we are a couple so wasnt a big deal.
WiFi availability well we were in room 419, and during day it was brillant but after 6pm it really did become sluggish but usable.
Room was cleaned everyday and Towels left excellent service
SPA,Steam and Sauna were really relaxing, we went twice and was thoroughly enjoyable.
Alot of people complained about the location but we found it very easy to get to Metro point which was 5-7 min walk, Shopping centre had good places to have a drink and food. With trains operating so late it was very to get back to the Hotel. T10 cards were great but we realised that T50/30days card for the week would hve been a better option as we brought 4 T10 cards. SAFETY well we were wary but it was quiet around the Hotel and safe and even on the METRO after 11pm it was pretty safe no issues at all. Trains are so regular that those that complained abt distance was nonsensical as u cud get to Espanya in 8 minutes and onward trips were pretty quick.
I must say we dont speak Spainish but in BArcelona Metro workers, Police etc were always willing to try they best to help in English, extremely helpful compared to what we faced when we were in Seville.
Hotel staff were very courteous and even Shuttle driver overly helpful.
On the whole we enjoyed our stay because we were out most days, we even got to Girona and Figueru in 1 day. The beach was great fun. We would definitely stay at this hotel again if the price was right in a blink of an eye.
419 right in the corner..perfect
