“good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

although they have soundproof windows, they have angry, noisy cleaning ladies, like they have a problem that you are sleeping..!!! they start around 8 o'clock ;) we asked for a room with view and balcony, but it was no door to get out on the very, very, very small balcony. :))) we try to change it, but they say that they will have a room in two days. in the meanwhile someone from the reception tell me that there are only three rooms with doors and balcony, and I am not gonna have one of this, so we did not change any room. when we looked from outside we saw that only the rooms on the third floor have this problem...

A gem of a hotel right off Catalunya Square which is a central point for site-seeing buses, taxis, shops and the Rambla. We had a superior twin on the third floor which overlooked a pedestrian shopping street, but had little noise after shops closed.
Rooms comfortable and elegant with good toiletries etc. Staff very helpful.
Breakfast served in the garden conservatory, brilliant choice - and reasonable at 14 euros.
It would be good if dinner was served in the garden too.
The garden/swimming pool area is wonderfully peaceful.
I'm surprised this is only a three star hotel.

Beautiful hotel, great location! Stayed on holidays with my family , wife and kids. Rooms comfortable, clean, slurpy breakfast and a great summing pool. In the centre of the town, near Ramblas and Plaza Catalonia. Recommended!

Stayed here (in Room #102) in Mid-June 2013 with my wife. The place is nice, but not great.
Good Points -
1. Location cannot be beat - close to Plaza Catalunya, 2 minutes walk to the Cathedral, 5 mins from Las Ramblas. Perfect location in my book.
2. Hotel Nice and clean and building is lovely.
3. Well appointed rooms, nicely furnished.
4. Pool area very nice - great for relaxing (pool a bit small......)
5. Bar Staff excellent - can't fault them at all.
6. Hotel restaurant very good (on the whole)....some issues to be discussed later.

Not so Good Points -
1. Air conditioning did not work - we had it turned to maximum cooling and it was still hot in the room - all the air conditioning did was move hot air around - no cooling whatsoever. The A/C was also REALLY noisy, so there was zero chance of a good night's sleep with it turned on. Ended up turning it off and opening the window. This got a slight breeze into the room (without the horrendous noise) but had the downside that the TV of the people in the room next door kept us awake when they had it playing full blast after midnight (may they rot in hell). Also had the downside that someone was smoking in the area outside the window and we got a roomful of cigarette smoke.
2. Food was mostly very good - we ate at the Restaurant one night and it was excellent. However, we ate at the bar one lunchtime, and the burger that my wife ordered was totally raw in the middle. She likes rare, but this was raw to the point of bleeding - really not good. The club sandwich she got to replace it was, however, very good.
3. Room is pretty small, but as said before, nicely done.

All in all, a pretty good hotel, but our stay was really spoiled by the combination of a rubbish Air conditioning system and noisy neighbours. We are planning on coming back to Barcelona later in the year, but are still in 2 minds whether the location of this hotel is enough to make us come back - maybe we were just unlucky with this room.

Room Tip: It may be we were unlucky, but avoid room #102 like the plague.

We got a room with a terrace and twin beds. It was perfect for our needs. The room was sweet and quiet. Time on the terrace relaxing. We enjoyed hearing sea gulls in the am. the location is excellent. Minutes from the Gothic Cathedral and Ramblas. At the edge between the old and "new" part of Barcelona. Breakfast was pricey,yet it was worthwhile to be able to leisurely sit down and eat from the varied buffet selection before we grabbed a cab to the airport. The building is stunning. The pool is tiny, good for cooling off. Not suited to swimming. The building interior is so lovely, with a grand stairwell. I felt as though I stepped back in time when in the lobby. The staff were helpful, although they did not extend themselves past cursory answers, all except one. We took the walking tour from the lobby of the hotel. The guide came late and offered us only one option. The reception personnel was fabulous, regularly checking to see that he would come. For more options of tours, if you prefer a more tightly run "ship", I would go to running bean. Yet, Carlos with free walking tours more than made up for being late by giving us a nice tour and talking to us during the time we walked between sites. He also shared with us first hand knowledge as a native of Barcelona.

This hotel is perfectly placed in the heart of Barcelona. Just off the La Rambla (you wouldn't want to be staying on the La Rambla anyway)! We paid for a bigger room with a view which was great. The room was extremely comfortable, great bathroom with bath, perfect. The room was very quiet, double glazed doors installed! The hotel had a great outdoor area with a pool to relax at after a hard day touring Barcelona and the bar man looked after us extremely well.

Given accommodation can be pricey in Barcelona, I would definitely recommend this hotel for great value for money situated in a great location. We didn't take the breakfast at around €19 so cannot comment on the food within the hotel.

We would definitely stay here again. The staff were also accommodating.

Room Tip: Go for a larger room if you want a bit more space.
