My friend and I have recently stayed in this hotel. The location is good, not very central but there are a lot of transport links such as the metro. It's close to the beach and a big shopping centre. The hotel itself is nice and modern. Our room was very clean and there was enough space. The pool area was... More

Good things: modern building; clean rooms; reception service; minibar; toiletries; comfortable bathrooms. OK things: close to subway but about 30 minutes ride from city center; room is medium sized. Bad things: free internet only for a chain members - feels like an extortion to force joining; no coffee maker; quite modest TV and only 3 English channels.

This hotel is on the Diagonal so a little away from the center of town and all of the tourist areas but the tram right out side of the hotel takes you right to the metro and that takes you anywhere you want to go. The hotel was very clean, our rooms were very large, clean and comfortable. By far... More

Stayed here for a conference and it was perfectly located with good sized rooms. Mattress and pillows leaves a lot to wish for and all the rooms smelled of cigarettes which was not pleasant. Bathrooms were spacious and overall details were clean and well maintained

It´s very well connected through the Metro, buses, taxis and a beautiful tranvia. But the staff are the stars of the hotel. Everyone I dealt with were very friendly and helpful, but my special...
