The hotel was right in middle of the Gothic Quarter with walkability to everywhere. Would definitely stay there again. The balcony was great for people watching. It was a little loud in the middle of the night with the people partying in the streets. The view wasn't the greatest as we looked right onto another apartment building. The location was excellent.

Great customer service. Unique and beautifully decorated rooms with plenty of space. Very clean. Right in the middle of the Gothic Quarter and we were able to walk all over. Will be back. Surprisingly rooms were very quiet.

This is real gem of a hotel. The building is old but stylishly so and refurbished to a high standard. The rooms are great with kitchen tea that are fully equipped so it’s easy to get some food in for breakfast or other meals, although it’s so well-located that you don’t really need to. This hotel is perfect for a couples getaway, less so for younger kids. It’s quite grown up. There’s a lovely little pool on the roof which is great for a couple of hours of sunshine. The gym is ok too but you have make an appointment which is a bit annoying. But the rooms are lush and well-appointed. Comfortable beds, great linen, lovely bathrooms and real character make this a great choice. Service from the team on reception was also excellent. They really want to help. Location is great if you want to wander this great city.

Hotel is very nice, clean and peaceful. Rooms are spacey and had a fresh air. Location is good. For taxis it’s a bit hard to reach to the hotel but Rambla is behind couple of blocks where it’s easy to pick up and drop off. The breakfast is pre-ordered and delivered to the room. I suggest to forget that and go out for any good close-by local cafes instead for a breakfast. Just follow where the locals are and you can’t go wrong. Downstairs is a nice tapas restaurant.

Really nice hotel! Its a good and central location with bars, supermarket, the Rambla ect. just round the corners. Its very quiet despite the central lokation. Big room, with all you need and a really nice bathroom -looks like the pictures! Friendly staff as well. The pool on the rooftop, is the cherry on top 🍒

We had a great stay at this lovely hotel. Perfectly located in the middle of the old town so lot's of life but no noise as soon as you had the doors/windows closed. I like the idea of not overdoing on cleaning but in case you asked for something you were immediately helped out. Very friendly personnel !!

Stayed here with my wife and 2 daughters. The location is ideal in the Gothic Quarter. Close to the shore, sights, L3 subway line, etc. Very quiet at night for being so central. Room was large and clean. Very up to date. Really appreciated the kitchen and fridge to keep the kids fed and happy. Internet was fast enough for the whole family to use it. The kids beds were set up in the large entry room separate from the other bed. There was no door, but did allow the adults to be up while the kids slept. Service staff was very prompt and helpful. Only negative I have is that there was no room service during our stay or re-stocking of TP, trash removal, etc. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends.
