This small friendly hotel made an excellent base for a long weekend in Barcelona. Situated by the harbour, it is just minutes from the Columbus statue at the bottom of Las Ramblas, and many museums and churches are within easy walking distance, as is the delightful area of El Born with its many restaurants, narrow streets and squares. The hotel...

We Stayed 2 nights at the Hotel for the weekend of The Marathon and The Festival Festival de Santa Eulàlia. The Hotel location, right on the Passeig de Colom is great for access to the Marina and also walking distance to the Gothic Area, so no grumbles there.

We loved our stay here. From the moment we checked in and had our complementary welcome drink and friendly service. The staff are very friendly and helpful but not intrusive.

Our room was a little tight but manageable. This was the last hotel we stayed at on our 2 weeks Portugal/Spain trip so it wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. The room was very clean. We were on the second floor facing the street so it got a little noisy at times. Especially when we were trying to sleep...
