We couldn't fault this hotel it was clean, friendly, had a great location for both getting to the port or airport as well as for exploring the city. The rooms were spacious and in good condition and we enjoy a very comfortable night there it

I loved the locattion. Through your windows you can see the MNAC (National Art Museum of Catalunya), which is a beutiful palace-like builging, with dancing fountains and light at night, the Ex- Bull fight plaza which is now a super cool shopping mall, and you have the metro station just a few steps outside the hotel´s door. The rooms are super clean an modern. The bathroom is huge. I felt like I was in a US hotel as I entered my room. Super globalized, not a European old fashion hotel. Wifi in the rooms didn´t work but the lobby wifi worked perfectly. Excellent ambience in the lobby, Really Kind Service, helpful peolpe 24/7. I stayed there for 1 week for bussiness and I loved it because I also had the chance to get to the touristic places fast and easy. Visit the coffe and bread shop 1 block away called Granier, its delicious fresh bread and delicious sanwishes, and the coffee is so good too. Had breakfast every morning there for from 6-8 Euros a day.

Stayed once recently at this hotel - very convenient from the airport (the Aerobus stops almost at the door) - also, being situated at the Plaza de España, there is a major shopping centre next door as well as simple access to the underground (just in front of the main hotel entrance). I find hotels in Barcelona to vary too much in price, but we managed to obtain a good deal - seems to depend on local activities such as Conferences, Fairs and Tourist seasons. The hotel in itself is cold and good for accommodation only - too big to offer any individual service and also rather without character. We did however enjoy our overnight stay and I have no negative things to comment. The rooms are ok and equipped with everything needed. We'll probably overnight here again if the price is right.

Room Tip: The rear of the hotel is quieter (not in front of the Square - but if it is the view you want, then...

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!
