Stayed 4 nights in mid-July. Very convenient, only two blocks from Placa de Catalunya, so we walked to and from the Aerostar bus stop. We had a room with a king bed on the 8th floor overlooking the rear area of the hotel. So the view was less than exciting. The staff help was adequate. The AC worked great!! The bath was adequate and had two sinks. Breakfast was and additional 8 Euros per person, but recommend it. Although it was the same every morning. We walked every day down to the Rambla area in 10 min. Overall, not spectacular, but great value for the location.

The hotel is very well situated near Las Ramblas. The room was comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a plumbing problem in the bath room and when it proved to be bigger than expected we were immediately moved to another room, without fuss. The mattress on the bed was firm and comfortable. The breakfast was very good. Did find that the air con got really too cold at times, and, as it is centrally controlled there is little that could be done in the room.

We were with a tour, and the first thing we discovered is that the tour bus could not unload the luggage in front of the hotel. So we had to drag our luggage a block to the hotel. The front desk was adequate but understaffed. Our specific room was very nice-updated and a reasonable size. The breakfast buffet was very nice. There was no concierge, but there were plenty of shops and restaurants very near the hotel. Overall, this was an OK experience, but we would stay at a different hotel the next time we come to Barcelona.

The room I was allocated was small and dark. There was no natural light and you could not walk around the bed without touching the walls.

The morning staff on reception confirmed that the booking included a meal allowance and accordingly I was not charged for breakfast. The evening reception staff mistakenly contradicted their colleagues and told me that I would have to pay for evening meals.

Finally there was no food available in the evenings other than room service.

The room was not made-up until the second day.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 6 days in May 2014. We both consider that we have made an excellent choice for many reasons. First of all the hotel’s location is perfect: less than 500m distance from Catalonya Square and about 50 meters from Passeig de Gracia, in an area with a lot of restaurants and cafeterias. Second, the rooms are large and clean, the beds are very comfortable and the breakfast has a large variety of foods, able to cover everybody’s preferences. And last, but not the list, the hotel’s staff, in all the levels and departments (the cleaning ladies, the restaurant employees, the reception desk) turns the place into a perfect choice, as everybody is very polite and helpful. We were especially impressed by the reception desk, a great, professional team who helped us in many ways, with a lot of useful information. But most of all, we owe a BIG thanks to Ms. Carola and to Ms. Laura Fuente. Both of the ladies were very kind with us, very helpful, polite, friendly (in a good, professional way),exceeding even our best expectations . THANK YOU!!
