This hotel is located one block from Casa Batllo on the Passaig de Gracia. It was centrally located to all the places we wanted to walk. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful room (a bit on the small side). Great continental breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

The rooms are great. All amenities as needed however the Internet is a bit pricey and quite slow. It was practically impossible to stream an videos from Netflix. Moreover the staff is one of the nicest I've ever encountered at a hotel. Well done!

Stayed in this hotel last week. Very good hotel in the center of Barcelona. Beside the excellent service and good rooms this hotel is also very trendy designed. The lounge part of the lobby is really tasteful. Staff was also very friendly and helpful. Next visit I will definitely stay here!

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a 2 week Europe trip. It was a great hotel - very good location, near the La Pedrera, Sagrada Familia, Parc Guell and shopping street. Very conveniently located close to the metro line.

Very nicely appointed rooms. Was given a room on with a slight view of the Sagrada Familia. Room was cosy, quiet with nice amenities was.

Staff were very friendly and helpful at all times - front desk, housekeeping and especially concierge. Service was prompt - housekeeping delivered additional toiletries and ice within 5 minutes.

Will definitely stay here again.

This hotel is very nice, offers a free shuttle to the airport and only 10 Euro to the port. We stayed the night before our Norwegian cruise and the day we returned. If you pay the extra for the Elite Zone (151.00 Euro, as opposed to 121.00 Euro) you get free breakfast, free wifi, free beverages all day and free wine and beer in the evening for a couple hours! It was awesome! The pool is pristinely clean and clear. They could use a few more lounge chairs. The water was a little chilly, but a nice pool to relax by.

Front desk staff, particularly Francesco, and the concierge both day and night were very very friendly and accomodating.

They have a small restaurant downstairs which is nice with a bar and comfortable seating. The staff is very attentive there as well.

I will definitely stay there again if I go to Barcelona again.

Room Tip: definitely pay for the Elite zone rooms

Hotel is in a great location. Near the Gaudi homes and fantastic area for shopping.
room is spacious, quiet. The only thing I didn't like is that most hotels when the charge for internet in the rooms its free in the lobby. this wasn't the case. They did have 2 free computers in the lobby for you to use but if they had this why not just let the guests have it free downstairs? thats what they did in the Renaissance in Mardrid.
Other than that I would definetely go back to this hote.
