4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Short city break with the family. Impressed with the friendly helpful staff, convenient location and pool is a bonus. Would stay here again if we return to Barcelona in the future. Didn't sample breakfast as lots of places nearby to try instead.

Arrived on Sunday 17th July for a 5 day break. Hotel staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. Most speak good English (my Spanish is rubbish so this is a massive plus!!) The manager took the time to go through the map to point out places of interest in the area, including a couple of tapas bars serving local food!... More

great location and comfortable, clean room. Breakfast delicious. Problem with room air conditioning took a bit of sorting - we had to persist to get them to resolve. Lots of great restaurants around. Close to station for airport train.

Spent 4 nights here & was a perfect location from which to get around this quirky city. The room was spacious considering the hotel's central location, v.clean & comfortable. The pool area is perfect for cooling down and chilling (with a refreshing mojito in hand if desired!) But worth noting that long-term sun bathing is only possible up on the... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights before a wedding outside of the city. Great place to stay just off the main drag into the city. central to every thing and far enough away to get some peace and quiet. The staff were very helpful and the hotel very clean. We stayed on the second floor with the second bath... More

This hotel is really not worth the price. Beds are uncomfortable, noise is terrible and personal at the reception is mostly unfriendly. Also the air-conditioning is 100 years old old. I would not recommend this hotel. We went with the family and some kids there were sooo noisy that we couldn't sleep. If you have educated kids really avoid going... More

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.
