“Best hotel I have stayed in.”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Beautiful penthouse room. Spotlessly clean. Enormous comfortable bed. Beautiful shower room and vanity area. Free soft drink mini bar, complimentary toiletries.

Staff were very helpful. They lent us a plug adapter to charge our phones and left luggage was no problem.

It's very close to a metro.

A wonderful hotel, with great staff, excellent rooms and surprising value.

The location is outside of the main city attractions, but is a very short walk to the metro, and next door to a shopping mall.

The room was amazing; we were bumped to the penthouse with a beautiful view of the Med! As a hotel it can't be faulted; comfortable, luxuerious, clean and efficient. More than you would expect it to be! It definately makes me want to keep an eye out for the Princess chain again!

At night, the top floors have an amazing view of the city.

Easily one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in.

We didn't opt to eat breakfast or dinner at the hotel, as that did seem alittle steep. And there are no close by cafe's to have something early. But the proximity to the metro means you can be up and out into central Barcelona for breakfast within 15 minutes.

Room Tip: Ask for th high floor sea view

I have to say this hotel was perfect for it's location, quality and price.
Short walk to the beach, with lots of beach bars and places to eat.
Close to the metro station (just across the street) so easy to get into the city. The tour bus stops just around the corner and you can see the cathedral from your bedroom window.
Far enough away to be quiet but not too far for a cab.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the cathedral. Be very careful in the city as there are lots of pick...

After reading the reviews on here my girlfriend and i decided this hotel would be perfect for us; Clean, Modern and not too far from the city centre.

When arriving it did not dissapoint! The staff were incredibly helpful and had made note of our request for a high room. We were on the 24th floor which had spectacular views of the city. The rooms themselves were always cleaned to an amazing standard and after exploring for a few hours when we arrived we came back to an iced bottle of champagne and chocolate coated fruits which was a lovely gesture.

The hotel is a minutes walk from the nearest metro which takes approximately 15 minutes to get to the main centre, no time at all! (Recommend the T10 metro ticket) It is also next to a new shopping mall which is has restuarants and a large variety of shops.

The food was great including the wide variety of food on offer at the breakfast buffet; fruit, continental and cooked options. The cocktails from the bar are also great, half price cocktails between 18:00 and 20:00 every night are a great place to start your evening or to end after a busy day of sight seeing!

The hotel also has a outdoor pool on the 23rd floor which despite it being relatively chilly outside was always warm and perfect for a quick morning swim before breakfast to wake you up.

Throughout the whole stay i cannot fault the service of the staff or the hotels facilities and they were always happy to help us out on our first visit to the city. Will definitely be staying again when we return to Barcelona

Room Tip: Request a high room, will definitely be worth it for the views of either the sea or the city itself...

Stayed for 5 nights - while the place was clean, well located (public transport, sea view, shopping mall next door) I found that the service personnel was not attentive and did not respond to my requests for a different setup of the bed, for example. What is more, there must be severe plumbing issues, it rained in my shower (from the ceiling!!!) and the connecting bridge between the two buildings was inundated one evening.
Breakfast is excellent.
Sauna area very small, crammed, mixed, but clean.

Loved this hotel for a two night stay in Barcelona, glass lift was a great feature. Hotel is out of city centre but easy to reach by metro, we got a taxi from Airport but used metro to get round the city centre. Breakfast was first class, with a wide array of food to select from. Roof top pool was a nice feature but not really a size you could swim in. April 23rd is a great time to be in Barca as it is St Georges day, the patron saint of Barcelona and the Ramblas are awash with St George flags and flowers/books. The tradition is you buy flowers for the lady and she buys a book for you (or so i believe), also near the hotel there was a feirria with food and drink and dancing, great fun.

This is the first hotel I have ever stayed at, in all of my years of travelling in Europe, where they do not provide an iron or ironing board.

If you want your clothes ironed, it will cost you upwards of 20 euros for a couple of shirts.

Seems like another way for the hotel to make money off you, and get you to use their laundry facility which is a rip off.

The room had good views over the city, and the breakfast and staff were pretty good.
