I recommend for couples, but not for family with small babies as I needed to storage and warm food in the restaurants and the staff wasn’t very friendly and happy about that. Don’t see the hotel as a very child friendly place to be with my baby again.

Great value for money, lovely clean hotel with friendly staff, good facilities especially the roof top terraces, pool and views and an excellent buffet breakfast. We stayed for a 5 night break and thoroughly enjoyed our time in Barcelona and the Hotels' facilities.

We stayed here after a cruise. Close to the port and Ramblas. Located on the "right" side of the town from the airport. Very nice pool on the roof. Since it's on a big street getting a taxi is not a problem.

We stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. Good location, a little bit old, but clean and comfy hotel. Pool is small and you can use it only till 8PM, that is a shame. also bar on top was working till 6.30PM, so we hoped to enjoy cocktails, while kids are playing in the pool in the evening, but we could not. During all our stay, breakfast was good, but the same all days. Soundproof through doors was bad - you can hear, what people are talking inside Stuff was very good, helpful, hotel and rooms were clean.
