“Good location, OK hotel”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Hotel is located in a nice residential area with a lot of restaurants and cafe. Metro station is right outside the front door. Sants train station is 10-15 minutes walk away. Main attractions a short metro ride. Hotel is easy to access from airport by metro. Facing Magic Fountains and Catalonian Art museum. Our room had a beautiful view on the fountains and Montjuic. The room and the bathroom were clean, but in my opinion lacked the character. The hotel has a rooftop pool that was a nice touch. Have not tried the restaurant as it was tons of great places for breakfast and dinner nearby. If you are not looking for a central location, it's a good place to stay.

We found this to be a bland soulless hotel, a large box containing many smaller boxes. The decor is designed for easy cleaning and has little character. Same colour on the floors & walls. Good points: passable standard of cleaning, comfortable bed, nice cotton sheets, quiet room for a good sleep, good towels, amazing breakfasts, pleasant staff, centrally situated. Not so good: our room needed maintenance. The window latch was loose and awkward to use when we arrived, then fell off during our stay, the bathroom sink was cracked, there were rust stains in the bath, the bottom of the bathroom door had rotted due to damp [probably because the extractor fan didn’t seem to work], the ‘minibar’ mentioned in the brochure did not exist, one of the bedside lamps was loose and falling off the wall, the writing pad was torn, there were stains and sticky marks on the wall and a cracked area in the ceiling. Although there was plenty of hanging space, I lived out of my suitcase as there were no drawers for clothing. The view from the room [at the back of the hotel] consisted of a demolition site, graffiti and what looked like a centre for down & outs or drug addicts. The hotel “does what it says on the tin,” it provides accommodation for hundreds of people, is reasonably comfortably and close to the centre of Barcelona. I am at a loss to understand how it gets **** and very glad I was only there for three nights.

Room Tip: Good views at the front, quiet rooms at the back.

We visited this hotel as part of a Gate 1 tour of Spain. The rooms are clean, comfortable and more than acceptable. But don't expect heated towels and terry robes or a balcony with a great view. It's the kind of hotel you need when you tour and spend only 9 hours or so a day in the room. Location was great: near metro and bus lines at Plaza Espana. If you want to nit-pick it: TV has few English channels (but who goes to Spain to watch Leno), no Kleenex (use a hankie) and they were unable to supply us with a voltage converter or any 120 voltage. Courteous, knowledgeable staff.

Stayed for four nights for a birthday trip and enjoyed the ease and position of the hotel including the excellent customer service and great breakfast selection. The hotel is a scenic walk away from las ramblas but only a few short stops on the metro too. Excellent location to and from the airport and right next to a stop for the hop on/off bus tour which is a must!

We stayed for three nights and were very happy with the hotel. The rooms were clean and big enough that you don't feel cramped. The location was gret for us, not in the center of town but only 2-3 metro stops away from the port and rambles. The metro station is right outside the door of the hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfest was very good with a nice variety of food as well as fresh fruit and juices.

Room Tip: We requested and got an interior room since the hotel is right on a main intersection (plaza espana...

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Each guest is given a voucher for a free glass of cava in the bar, there's a free bottle of water and some chocolates in the room too. The hotel is very big, the rooms are nice and big. We had a great view of Plaza Espana! There's a swimming pool on the roof, although it was too cold for us to use in May. I don't think they can say they have a fitness room as it only consists of 3 machines. The breakfast is fantastic- it has everything you can imagine! Despite facing a very busy roundabout, it wasn't noisy at all. I would definitely return to this hotel.
