Bar fridge flashed all night staff didn't understand much English or said hello. Air conditioner didn't work very well. Over priced. Great location though. They said they had room service it was from other business then charged over 10 euros to get it deliver them charged you for the call.

I recently stayed for 3 nights which included the weekend. Make sure to ask to stay at a higher floor. Fortunately for me, I was so tired that the shaking and rumbling of the nearby subway did not affect my sleep. The subway runs underneath this building. It could also get loud if there is a football match going on.... More

Very modern, clean hotel in a great location. Easy access to restaurants, metro and sites. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Lots of wood floors which made the rooms quite noisy though. Would stay here again.

This is a wonderful small hotel in the L'Eixample District of Barcelona. The hotel is very clean and the staff are so supportive and ready to offer assistance.

酒店前台帮忙checkin的那个女孩很赞。帮忙提行李的男士也很nice。除了隔壁的总机箱噪音有点大外,其他的没有什么大缺点。很喜欢那个天台。The location is good, with walking distance to the Casa Mila and Casa Batilo. Room is clean and bed is comfortable. I like the balcony especially. The girl in reception is really professional and helpful, she rescued me from desperation. The guy who helped with our luggage is really nice as well. I think both of them deserve to be... More

Neighborhood is very nice, hotel itself is good with supportive staff. The room cleaning service is great. Just to know, room has a minibar but doesn't have a teapot. There is a small swimming pool, in the backyard. Little bit noisy due to underground metro, directly beneath of the hotel.

My hotel room was small, but clean and comfortable. I was on the floor above the lobby. Turns out the hotel is on top of or very near the metro line and therefore, I could hear the rumble of the trains. Some folks complained that they also had vibrations, so they moved.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
