“Nice hotel, close to beaches, rooftop pool”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Spent 2 nights here in May, overall quite happy with this hotel. It's not in the heart of Barcelona, but the centre is easily accessible by subway. In my opinion this is the kind of hotel you choose when you're planning on spending time by the pool or by the beach. The sundeck at the roof top has lots of sun beds, and being a roof top pool the size is quite ok. I particularly liked the area around the hotel, lots of restaurants and bars. The beach is a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. Did not eat at the hotel. One thing that really bugged me was that there were no irons you could borrow, you had to have the hotel iron your shirts for you at the cost of 10 EUR.

The prices were going up and down so to say daily, dunno if I booked at the right time or not, but overall I was happy with the value for money.

Very clean and modern hotel. Great brakfast and lunch. Interior in black, white and red/orange for a somewhat masculin look. Situated 5 minutes walk from the beach and one block away from Rambla de Poblenou which has several outdoor restaurants. Still, the hotel is in a quiet area. Somewhat outside centre of Barcelona, but only a short walk from the metro. We recommend to walk from Poblenou instead of Llacuna, even though it is one block longer. This will give you an overview of the shops and restaurants in the area.

I stayed here 1 night with my boyfriend and loved it!!!!
We stayed in a standard double room and it was huge.
The restaurant in the hotel was very quiet but nice , we had a 3 course meal and drinks for lunch and it only cost 15 euros each.
Internet connection was great everywhere in the hotel.
We also had a sea view room :)

A spotless and stylish hotel that is less than 5 mins walk from the beach and 35 mins walk to the city centre or 10 mins walk to the tourist bus stops to all the cities wonderful attraction. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Only negative points were that there is no restaurant bar for drinks and the breakfast is very expensive 15 Euros per person and no where near worth that. Eat out, Barcelona has plenty to offer. Would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. We actually thought the hotel was decent. Our room had a nice view and it appeared to be immaculate. However, the following morning I took a shower and realized the tub had a decent sized crack in it that had been there for a while, which caused the whole room to smell while using the shower. My husband also noticed that our bed sheet had a streak of blood on it. We informed the hotel staff who apologized and changed the sheets. They did not address the tub- but oh well. Then during the day my husband had noticed he had rows of bite marks along his body. He suspected bed bugs. When he returned to work he consulted with his colleague (a dermatologist) who confirmed he had in fact been bitten numerous times by bed bugs. It really is too bad about the whole bedbug issue because I liked the fact that the hotel was very close to the beach and was nice and modern. I hope they remedy this situation soon because it was a decent hotel.

After a few nights in the city center, we wanted to move closer to the beach and a little off the beaten tourist path. This hotel made our previous 3 star look like a 1 star in comparison, and we found the best food of our whole trip off la rambla poblenou which was our own little rambla right around the corner. The beach is 3 minutes and the rooftop views show la sagrad familia not to mention the ocean! We loved how we could still access tourist sights via metro, but found barceloneta and other sights within 20 mins walking ad well. Stayed here twice we liked it so much! If you need a break from the tourist traps and crowds, come here and really enjoy Barcelona at leisure.

Plus points about hotel:
Near beach and metro stop
Clean and comfortable
Nice roof top terrace with v small pool
Lots of restaurants nearby

Negatives:
Sterile hotel and lacks atmosphere
No actual bar, just restaurant that doesn't look welcoming

Booked as a last minute deal and nice enough but wouldn't stay again. Last time we stayed at H10 Barcelona marina which probably a better location and much nicer hotel.
