“Strange experience...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2010

I went with my new girlfriend for 5 nights. Great location, with good restaurants and shops around the hotel. I didn't like the bathroom and shower with the glass doors. The doors didn't close properly so you could hear and see the person inside.
No place to put your cloths next to the shower and the room is always getting wet because the of the glass doors. No cabinet next to the sink to put your tooth brush or shaving cream eather.
On the other hand, I wasn't bothered by the noise at all.

Good convenient location for seeing everything that Barcelona has to offer. Overall the hotel is very modern but not very practical or comfortable, a lot of noise at night which was annoying, could hear doors opening and closing and people walking in corridor. Strange bathroom with glass door! Food in morning could have a better selection. Staff had good restaurant suggestions.

It is a modern hotel in a great location with really funky furniture most of which isn't actually comfortable to sit on though. The hotel looks great and the staff were very friendly and helpful but it reminded me of a warehouse. It is on a main street but you can't hear anything during the night from outside all you can hear is other guests, doors opening and closing, the elevator etc... everything echoes around the corridors, very annoying. The bed was huge and very comfortable but I didn't like the bathroom at all, all open plan and nothing but a glass door between the toilet and the bed. The door did not close properly so you could hear and see everything. I wouldn't consider this a five star hotel.

This was a great hotel for us and I would recommend it.

Exceptionally clean and well maintained. Nothing to grumble about it at all. Other reviews mentioned bits about the bathroom being in the room. For a weekend away for a recently married young couple it was fine by us! The shower is massive and really cool! The bath is huge, so remember to take your bubble bath with you! The basins are a bit small and storage is minimal, but it didn't matter to us. If you get stage fright being on the loo and someone being able to hear, this isn't the place for you!

The free wifi was dead easy to access and was very welcomed. The bed is a king size, if not bigger, and very comfortable.

My only disappointment was the jacuzzi wasn't open, but given that I only wanted to use it on 1 of our 4 days there, which was the first nice day since winter I wasn't suprised.

The location was good, by the Passeig de Gracia train/tram station. We were able to get there by train from the airport with no bother at all. It is within walking distance to lots of shops and there are a number of restaurants nearby. It's very central to allow you to explore Las Ramblas on foot and places further afield, such as Montjuic by tram.

We'd happily stay there again.

We had a wonderful time at the BCN Design. The service was wonderful! The staff was very nice and helpful throughout the trip. The rooms were very clean and wonderfully designed. The pictures on their website are true to what the hotel looks like! The hotel has a restaurant, bar, FREE wifi, fitness center and jacuzzi on the rooftop. Room service and mini bar prices were extremely reasonable. We were there for our honeymoon.
If you are used to having privacy in the bathroom, this hotel may not be for you as the bathroom in incorporated into the rest of the room. The bathtub is in the middle of the room, the shower & bathroom doors are frosted windows that can be seen from any part of the room. I didn't mind it at all. The design of the room was awesome and modern.
It's located right on Passieg de Gracia, a 2 min walk to Plaza Catalunya and 2 min walk to Guadi's famous buildings. You can't beat the location! The Metro is across the street. The train station is a bout a block away, within walking distance with a large suitcase =).
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to stay at a centrally located chic hotel.
