I felt welcome from the first moment - very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel has a great location right in front of the Cathedral and the Barrio Gotico. Rooms are relatively standard but in excellent conditions. Roof-Top Bar for a swim in the pool, gym, sauna or to smoke a cigar is added value.

The location, service level, cleanliness, amenities, roof-top views and unbelievably comfortable bedding made our stay in Barcelona over the top. Absolutely no A/C noise. Breakfast at the hotel is a must and a good start to the day.

This hotel is in the heart of the city. You can walk almost every where, and are surrounded by great bars, restaurants, and shops. The hotel itself is phenomenal. They earned all 5 stars with amazing staff, great rooms that were silent to an noise, and a rooftop pool bar that is beyond anything I have seen.

Beautiful fun hotel centrally located to everything in Barcelona. Wonderfully appointed rooms, lobby and restaurant for night time dining. The breakfast offerings were exceptional. Topping it all off were the views from the rooftop pool and the pool itself, perfect way to spend part of the day or evening. Enjoy!

We were overall happy with this hotel. Very clean and a great location. The included buffet breakfast was good. The staff and concierge were very polite and helpful. The rooms are rather small. Ours was next to a playground and we had a lot of noise. The rooftop is beautiful and worth a visit or 2. We had drinks there 2 afternoons.

Dear Nel, Thank you for sharing your comment with other travellers. Our Team works hard to ensure that our guests receive the highest level of service available and it is our pleasure to read that they were helpful and nice. I am sorry to know that noise was a disturbance during your stay. The windows are double glazing. We will revise the proper window closing so it does not repeat again. Please let us know when you will be returning to Barcelona, as we would love to welcome you back.

This hotel has excellent service, including extra touches like turn down service and a welcome drink. The bathroom offers a full soaking tub, not just a shower, which was a great added amenity. The breakfast buffet is extensive, one of the best I've had at any hotel. The rooftop bar and infinity pool is a gem. The staff was very helpful and proactive. The location is also a short walk to many of the historic sites and also a short walk to the Paleu de la Musica. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I would definitely stay there again.
