This was our second time staying at REC. Our first stay in 2019 was splendid and I am happy to say that this time our stay was even better. Firstly, the staff at the hotel allowed us to check in early because we arrived at Barcelona a day later than expected as our flight from the US was cancelled and pushed to next day (it was a total nightmare). We really appreciate the hotel staff understanding our situation and not only allowing us to check in early but also changing our booking dates without any fuss. The rooms are very well designed . It’s got a very modern and clean. The location is perfect. I cannot stress enough about how good the location of this hotel is. Another really nice thing the hotel did for my wife’s birthday is leaving a birthday card, cake and a bottle of cava for us to enjoy. We will definitely be staying at this hotel for our next trip to the wonderful city of Barcelona and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that is planning on visiting Barcelona.

Cannot fault our stay. The room was very clean and the bed was the most comfortable for a hotel bed that I have stayed in for a while! The staff were very friendly, approachable and welcoming. We will be recommending this hotel to friends & family and will be returning.

Done a recent stay at this hotel and the location couldn't have been better! Very clean, a restful sleep free of early A.M. disturbances and just very walk-able. The breakfast buffet was excellent also. The only thing a little unusual was placement of the TV on a wall; not at the bed's end, which meant turning your head for viewing. However, it could be that particular floor or logistic (4th).

We are from Mallorca and visit Barcelona often. So happy to have found this hotel! Clean rooms, great design, so accommodating. Saturday night there was live music in the rooftop bar and they invited all guests for cava on the house. They also went out of their way with a few nice surprises for my birthday. For sure I’ll be coming back!

Would highly recommend, everything is within walking distance. Due to the time of year not too busy. Staff brilliant, rooms light, spacious and airy. Breakfast good - we are vegetarians and Continental is perfect, albeit if meat eaters there is limited options. Would definitely return.

We’ve just returned from a lovely stay in this hotel. The hotel is seconds from the Arc de Triomf, and has great links to the city centre. If you’re planning a stay here, the only recommendation we’d make is to request a higher floor, as the restaurant below had live music most nights that could be heard from our room quite clearly on the first floor. But not a major issue! Overall a great stay, and we’ll return to this hotel on our next visit to Barcelona.

My sister and I had a thoroughly fabulous stay at this comfortable, modern and stylish hotel. They really took excellent care of us and our needs and responded to our requests immetly. The staff and especially the hotel manager were so kind and accommodating. We have not experienced such friendliness and comfort in a hotel and we travel a lot together and have quite a bit of hotel experience. The rooms are great furnished, the beds very comfortable, not too hard, not too soft. The pillows were very good and we got warm blankets. We really didn't want for anything. It is quiet, clean and not noisy. Breakfast was good and varied, from sweet to savory, fruits and vegetables, juices, good coffee and tea. The dining room is chic and has a fantastic view over Barcelona. There are two roof terraces, one has a pool and you have sun all day. The location is perfect, you are very central and right in our favorite neighborhood El Born and the gothic quarter. You can reach very very many sights on foot but also excellent by bike and the connection to public transport is also given and very close. But what really delighted us the most was the extremely nice staff! We will definitely be back!
