“Beautiful design hotel”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Rooms
We lived in Deluxe room which was clean, spacious and beautifully furnished. Interior of the hotel (both in the public areas and the guest rooms) is just awesome. Everything looks brand new, stylish and comfortable. The only confusing thing is glass doors in the toilet and shower. The glass is not transparent – it’s matt, but still you definitely don’t feel any privacy there. Perhaps it’s OK for couples (though still not to all of them – I’m pretty sure), but I traveled with a friend and even though it’s a close friend of mine, we’re definitely not close to that point, you know… ;)

Staff
The staff is very friendly and supportive. No complains at all – we really experienced good service there.

Location
It’s pretty much in the center and close to the main shopping street (Passeig de Gracia), though be ready to have a 30 minutes walk to Placa de Catalunya, Barri Gotic and La Rambla.

Food
We didn’t have any in the hotel. As a breakfast option you can also pick Starbucks on Passeig de Gracia in 10 minutes walking distance (just as we did), though the place is pretty crowded most of the time.

A very comfortable week's stay for our first trip to Barcelona. Room layout was a bit quirky, but worked pretty well. Yes, the frosted glass on the loo and shower might be off-putting in some circumstances! The room and the rest of the accommodation felt clean and well maintained. Complimentary WiFi came in very handy for planning trips and meals. Members of the reception staff were patient, friendly and very helpful (from helping us plan our days to loaning us their own connectors for our Apple gadgets!). Our BA flights + hotel deal did not include breakfast and we did not sample food at the hotel. The location was fine for us since we didn't mind walking - in any case, the nearest Metro station is about 7 minutes' walk. Pity the room did not come with a kettle. The pool was more of a tub than a swimming pool...so we gave it a miss

Very modern , clever layout to room. Small quiet hotel. Good location for us but we did not mind walking . Only thing doors to toilet are made of frosted glass so not for shy couples! Breakfast nice buffet if you want cooked foods have to pay extra about eight euro so bit expensive I think

I stayed in this hotel in August 2012 for a week's holiday. Really loved the decor and style of the hotel from the pictures so was very excited to see what the hotel was like in real life.

Overall very impressed with the hotel. The staff were very helpful, our room was large, with everything one could need (including a TV in the toilet....) - The rooms ARE white and almost head to toe in mirrors, so if you are picky about things being pristine it may not be the place for you, the floors had scratches and marks, but that is expected, and to be honest, you're in Barcelona, so you should not be looking at the floor...

The only issue I would say in the room we had (standard superior) is that there is not enough space to hang your clothes. They have a lot of space, but it is not used THAT well. Also, the glass door to the toilet does not give you a lot of privacy...

The pool on the roof is more like a hot tub in its size, but after a long day sight seeing it was lovely to just sit in. The whole experience is very calm and relaxed.

We opted out of the breakfast as we knew we could eat around but I do think they should include it in the room price - No kettle etc in the room but there is a full mini-bar. The hotel is right next to a 24/7 shop (good on Sundays when everything is shut!) and the most incredible restaurants.

It is slightly further up and out of than most of the other hotels, but it is a very calm and safe neighborhood. There are Metro stops all around and most things are just a 10-30 min walk away!

Perfect stay, would come back without a doubt!

In this modern hotel, white is the central color. You feel like you're in 'the milk-bar' or in some sort of hospital. Room keys didn't work at first attempt, but they did at the second attempt. We had to look careful because our room was hidden behind a sliding door, consequence = quiet room. No tub but modern shower. There was a dirty spot on the plaid of the bed and the carpet, but all the rest was just perfect. Rooftop swimming pool and rest area was nice, we were wondering if we had to private-rent the place as it was quite small. The water was cold, and we both could just fit in the swimming pool. Also, there is a generator on the rooftop which makes an unpleasant noise. The view is not spectacular. And some Russian hotel guests who were there before us left their trash (emptied beverages, food from outside the hotel and cigarettes) which we found quite annoying and unrespectful, even if there were no dustbins around. There are plenty of nice restaurants and bars around.

Arrived 29th. Could not get into rooms keys would not work. Told computer problem!! Staff really didn't want to know kept blaming each other. Got into room. "What a shock" 4 star, don't think do more like 1 star. Floor filthy again keys didn't work. Went out came back keys still didn't work. Staff got confused and didn't know what's rooms we were in gave us a key to someone else's room !! What a joke, reported to BA who booked it with but they didn't want to know. Will never use either again!! ( Stay away from this hotel) and also BA where holidays are concerned. Lots of other choices in Barcelona spend your money with them instead.
