“Perfect location for exploring”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This hotel is situated yards from Las Ramblas and with a bus stop right outside the door. Rooms were a good size and I loved the little balcony that I could watch the bustling street from. We stayed on room only basis so didn't sample the food here as so many lovely places to eat within walking distance. Also, two of Gaudi's houses were only a few minutes walk away. We would stay here again as the situation is so convenient.

EAven though we were on the main street, when the doors are closed you can't hear the traffic.

On the negative side, because it's a design hotel, there was a lack of shelves to put toiletries etc on. And no drawers for clothes so we had to use the suitcases for storage.

We booked through Secret Escapes.

This is my first review on here and I just had to vent a little. I would have given this hotel a 5 star review, but after staying there 3 days and not having hot water for 2 of the nights we were there, then it becomes a big problem. Even though we had 20 hour flight delays, lost buggage and 1 less day in Barcelona, we really had an awesome time. But this hotel ruined some of the magic.

The fact that we walked around all day then come to the hotel to take a shower and go back out at night, only to find out that there is no hot water, it is unacceptable. That was on our 2nd night there. So we made best of it, took shower with really cold water and had fun the rest of the night in town. The 3rd and last day we were there, we had no hot water for the night or in the morning when we were checking out.

Just to be clear, the staff are super helpful, and very knowledgeable of the city. Gave us great recommendations and they really do an amazing job. But when we went to check out and I referred to having no hot water again all night and in the morning, it got brushed off like it was no big deal. Only answer was that they are working on it...no compensation or something to show that they understand and care for our hotel experience. I understand that it's nobody's fault, but with situations like this something needs to be done from management.

I paid FULL price for 3 nights of being in a hotel, that had no hot water. That makes no sense to me. I don't like to beg or ask for free stuff because I work and I can pay for things as a grown up. But the hotel should have some common sense on how to handle these type of situations. It seems that nobody really cares though.

It's a shame really, because the staff was fantastic and the hotel is in great location. I'm sure if you book on here you'll be fine, but hopefully you won't run into a situation like this, because they don't really know how to handle it.

The good: Fantastic location, relatively quiet (on 4th floor at least), clean
The bad: Seedy entrance despite the glamorous address; not particularly welcoming staff (although offered a great restaurant recommendation); room was fine (we knew about the open plan nature already), but fittings were 3 star at best; impossible to wet shave sensibly due to shelf height above sink; no plug in sink; bar closed at midnight.

Top class hotel, top service,sparkling clean & exel.location, very romantic :-)
I wanted somewhere central and romantic to whisk my fiancée away for 5 days to a surprise location (for him) for his 40th birthday, l heard so much about Barcelona and believe me, it fulfilled all of our expectations. We are very well travelled and I must admit that our 5 days at this hotel really helped make our trip all the more worth while. Definitely will be going back here and to the same hotel. The staff were super friendly and helpful which always helps make a stay more enjoyable.

Great location right in the heart of the city. Only one block south of a Gaudi design building called Casa Batllo. Quite pricey to go in. 21 Euros. A couple of blocks further north on the right side is the famous La Pedrra building. Try to go in at the 9.15pm night tour. Costs 30 Euros but you get a special restricted tour with about 20 people and afterwards a glass of Champangne.
The hotel is very modern with all facilities.85 Euros a night. Super clean. Breakfast starts at 7am -11am. Cost is 16 Euros. Buffet with everything you could wish to eat. A good tip...you will arrive by air to Barcelona airport. Buy the 2/3/4 or 5 day transport ticket before you go using the internet. You pick up your pass in the airport at the tourist desk, you cant miss it. You will be given a bus route map which shows all the buses that run in the city. The good thing with a pass is the driver does not normally accept money, you board, push your pass into a machine and it pops out again...all very quick. The bus pass is not available for the Big blue bus which goes from the airport straight to Pl Catalunya and stops there. It runs every 10 minutes and takes 40 minutes. The best way and only 9.90 Euros return. 200 metre walk north to the hotel. You can take number 24 bus over the road from the hotel going north straight to the entrance of Park Guall situated on a hill above the city.

the location itself is pretty nice, a 5 minutes walking to the Catalonia square.
has no view to look at.
room is really small. has ni privacy in the room. the shower itself is inside the room, and in some cases is having a window door which the partner can see through.
going with a friend for a vacation isnt satisfying at all, with a girlfriend or with a wife it can be pretty good. breakfast didn't please us at all.
we wanted to watch a football match on the tv and there were barely any open channels to watch, the tv itself was super small and the remote control was of a different company so the tv it didn't had any effect on the tv, and the hotel staff didn't find any answer to this problem.

not a 5 star hotel at all.
the hotel staff are doing their job good.
