“Excellent hotel location”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Situated on Las Ramblas, the hotel is walking distance to almost everything. Close to the La Boqueria, Gothic area and Cathedral. Taxi ride from the airport costs about 28 euros. Don't pay for airport transfers which the hotel offers for 75 euros. Take the hop on/off bus that will take you to the must see places in Barcelona.
Our concierge Christian was very helpful. He helped me booked some of my tours and recommended good places to eat.
The hotel restaurant offers a 3 course meal including wine during week days for 20 euros which they don't advertised if you are a walk-in. I had the best paella there.
The hotel is close to the port . It cost about 30 euros for a taxi cab ride if you are embarking on a cruise.
The room seems standard for the category. The bathroom is modern but the shower faucet is difficult to regulate. It is either too hot or too cold.
Due to the hotel accessibilty to most places, we had time to take naps in the afternoon and resume the tour later on.

The hotel was situated at the famous La Ramblas off the Catanula Square. I was visiting the city on June 23 n 24 after a cruise finished in Barcelona. The hotel is in excellent location with many interesting activities around. Closed to the marina bay with new shopping centre. Breakfast was really good with a lot of choices. Will certainly stay again when in Barcelona again.

We stayed here for one night before a cruise out of Barcelona. Prior to our arrival, we contacted the hotel to see if we could enter early since we would arrive from the US at 9am. For $150 they could accommodate us and provide breakfast. We decided to take our chances by not paying and like many others upon arrival from the US, were told that our room was not ready. We walked along La Rambla and had lunch. They called at 1pm to tell us the room was ready. Despite the unavailable room, we had a lovely time with help from the staff. I took many photos of he bathroom with hopes of using some ideas for my own bathroom remodel! Room was comfortable and had every amenity I could ever want. I highly recommend this property if you want to be close to everything touristy in Barcelona.

Location: Perfect. Right on La Ramblas. Close to gothic district, shopping, and even a 30min walk to the beach.

Service: Front desk speaks great english, very helpful.

Rooms: Reserved a Junior Suite for about 4 days. After notifying management it was our honeymoon upon reservation (3 months prior to the date) we received complimentary cava and chocolate covered strawberries in the room and they put us in a Junior Suite that was the corner room overlooking La Ramblas. Absolutely beautiful. Pictures will be uploaded. Also paid for flowers to be put in the room and bathroom. Housekeeping arranged the flowers into a heart. Rooms very spacious, bathroom modern, clean and large. Heated floors, and towel rack and rainfall shower.
Only room complaint was that another guest complained we were to loud at night. However we were just talking to each other near the wall...my guess is that the walls could be thicker because then in the morning i heard them speaking very loudly on the phone. Non-issue for us but obviously for those guests it was.

Hotel has security in front, a nice bar and restaurant. Only downside is no pool, if it had that it would be unreal!!

Room Tip: Corner Junior Suite overlooking Ramblas is amazing and has great light entering room.

Location is extremely convenient and central (both metro and walk)... and quiet. Room (Suite Méditerranéenne) was beautiful, large, clean with a nice terrace and great amenities. I loved the design of the bathroom and bed is great. Staff was really nice and professional.
A beautiful stay in Barcelona in a perfect hotel.

What a great hotel! The service was friendly and helpful! The room was massive, and the breakfast was of average size but superlative quality - I couldn't get enough of it! But by far the best thing about this hotel is the location - right on La Rambla. Through a tie-up with the Barcelona Contemporary Art Museum MACBA we were offered free entry, which we took advantage of and really enjoyed. All in all, we loved this place, and want to return!!!

We love the location of this property, but find the rooms small.  The desk, valet and doormen were very friendly and helpful.  There was a younger gentelman (possibly a mgr in training) that was very attentive and hopefully pursues a career in hospitality mgt.  The female concierge was knowledgeable (getting her keys soon), helpful & personable--I wish she was there more often during our stay.  Unfortunatly, the property is loosing her...Hopefully she is transfering to another Starwood property, as she is a gem!   Yes, we are Starwood platinum.   The gentelmen concierges were friendly, but had their few standard restaurants withing a 10 min. radius and directions to the "typical attractions" and thats it.   A concierge  should try and make each guests experience unique by taking into account what the guest is seeking.  If they dont understand what is being requesting ask questions, instead  or moving the guest along with any answer.  We were at the hotel 3 years ago and sent to the same 3-4 restaurants again this trip.  We requested recomendations for good food & late night dining (9:30ish).  We did not have location or cuisine restrictions, and were open to local, fine dining and or trendy establishments. So to get the same recomendations 3 years later was disapointing.  San Joan day was celebrated during our stay, and there was no information on the events until that afternoon.  We would have prefered information about the celebration upon check in, as we could have planned better for the evening.  As for the room.... If you pack more than 1 small carry on bag per person you will find the room crowded.  we were upgraded- thank you...but, it was almost impossible, or very difficult for my husband and I to move around the room at the same time (2 pieces of large luggage and 2 totes bags).  the foot of the bed is about 2 1/2" from the wall, so if you pack light you'll be comfortable.  Housekeeping was attentive with the exception of the grout around the bathtub...it could use some attention, but in their defense they are not provided with a great deal of time to thoroughly clean each room during high season.
