Requested double bed, given 2 singles, request quiet room, given room looking onto Via Laietana, with totally ineffective "double glazing" Clerks quite put out that I asked to be moved again, and in fact after this, didn't even acknowledge us when we passed the desk. Final room right next to elevator shaft, could hear whoomp, screech and squeak every time... More

The hotel is very well located and just few mins walk to harbour side and Gothic quarter. Rooms were okay . No double bed and we had to join two single beds. We were disappointed with the breakfast though. The staff during the breakfast was very unfriendly. She wouldn't let you enter unless you show her the receipt which room... More

We stayed here twice now, once in January 2012 and again in June 2016. The hotel is clean and its in a great location. If you are cruising out of Barcelona, this is a great first night place. We would stay again if cruising out of Barcelona. Walk to the Gaudi Cathederal, the beach and many other attractions.

Location was perfect, not far from beach and marina or if you're looking for restaurants and cafes head to the side street to the left opposite the... More

They told us to go file a claim to the police. That was the end of the story...... Could not recommend this hotel to... More

Good hotel with friendly staff, But could do with sound proofing of room as sounds in corridor and adjacent room very disturbing. Also water pipe at the back wall and very loud flow when people using in top floors

Cute hotel in the heart of down town Barcelona city. Very close to shopping and several attractions. Stone's throw away from the ocean. Perfect for a morning jog along the coast. Helpful staff. Quite a decent breakfast spread and my expectations were surpassed. Highly recommend.

First ever trip to Barcelona. Booked it on Tuesday, went on Friday. Found the hotel on a search engine. What a bit of luck we chose this hotel. Ideally situated for all attractions and POI's.
