We recently stayed at this hotel for the barcelona marathon and it is the perfect location for this event. You walk out the front door and are virtually at the event start/finish!

Being in Place Espagna is a pretty good spot for the rest of barcelona also as it is a great city for walking around in. Having said that, it is a fair walking distance to places such as Las Ramblas, the port/beach area, Segrada di Familia, etc. fortunately we had great weather so it was excellent for all the walking! Easay to also get taxis or the metro.

The hotel itself was fine - we had a renovated room on the 3rd floor with reasonable view of place espagna. "Wood" flooring, suficient space, good bathroom, double bed not the best but still ok. Housekeeping was very good.

Two things that were not great was firstly the lack of AC which meant the rooms were really hot (seriously ridiculous, felt like the heating was on!!) - prolem also being that it was essential to open the window which made it incredibly noisy.

Second issue which was not as bad as the first was that the hotel has free wifi (which is very good, thank you!), however, it does not always work and we had one full day where it did not work at all.

Staff were all really friendly except one woman in reception who was surprisingly rude compared to all the other very helpful and polite staff.

Easy to get to/from airport - we got taxis both ways (about 16 euro each trip), the airport bus also apparently stops close to the hotel.

Would definitely recommend this hotel if in Barcelona for the marathon and also fine even if just there on holiday (it does have a pool on the roof which was closed when we stayed there but this would be a bonus in the summer!).

Didn't use the spa. Gym is tiny with just a few peices of equipment.

Brilliantly located in Placa Espanya, without a stone's throw to Montjuic!

Aerobus A1 and A2 departs to the airport right at the door step of this hotel. Right beside Arena Barcelona (shopping centre) which houses a cinema, boutiques, restaurants and the famous Amorino gelato!

Stayed in the standard room for one night. Spacious even with a Queen-sized bed. WiFi connection was strong and consistent. Major downside is the air-conditioning! Read from previous reviews that the hotel does not turn on the air condition during winter time. Proven right at night and had to leave a window opened!

Service staff were very helpful. They housed my luggage when I went to Paris for 3 days. always smiling and ready to serve!

Great location, tourist bus and airport bus stops right outside. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, had a room on top floor and the views were spectacular. This is probably one of the ugliest hotels I have ever seen, however once inside it ticked the boxes. Breakfast was usual buffet but fresh and good selection.
Only problem was, room was too warm, no aircon on in January and we were fortunate to have amazing weather for January (short sleeves and meals outside!) although once windows left open for a while, it was fine.
Found it to be very good value but it was January, I guess more later in the year.
For a reasonably priced weekend break it did the job

...the room is terribly hot during the summer because the air-con is just not powerful enough to cool down the room. Otherwise the room could do a bit of renovation.

Location wise, it is well located on the Plaça Espanya, Montjuic is just next door, and the center of Barcelona is reachable by taxis, buses or TMB subways. The most interesting part of this hotel is that the Aerobus (shuttle bus) to Barcelona Airport stops right in front of the hotel.

In spite of the deficiency in the hotel comfort and decorations, I find the staff at the reception very courteous and efficient. Hotel security is good. El-Al pilots and cabin crew stay at this hotel when they transit in Barcelona.

This hotel was excellently located in the Plaza Espana and there was a metro station right in front of the hotel. The service was okay but could have been better since you always seemed to have to wait in line to get your questions answered and they never answered the phone when you called downstairs. The breakfast was really good and had a wide variety of choices. The bed was okay but I have had more comfortable. The location was probably the best feature of this hotel.
