Location is very good. 10 mins from the port. 10 mins from ramblas and there are loads of restaurants just outside the hotel. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. Breakfast isnt bad got a small selection but does the job.

Truly enjoyed our visit to Barcelona. The hotel was very comfortable with a very friendly and courteous staff. Las Ramblas is within walking distance. Rooms are spacious, modern and clean. Has a pool on the roof of the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel on Para Lel in Barcelona.

Had a room on 7th floor overlooking the Barcelona skyline. Fantastic room, clean, bathroom good size! Bed was so comfy, felt so rested!

Hotel staff friendly and always willing to help.

There is a small pool on 10th floor, downside, was soooo busy so didn't use this facility, but with Barcelona beach ten minutes away did not need to.

Location is fabulous and right in easy reach of La Rambla and all major touristic points, metro just outside or for a ten minutes stroll to get your bearings, to be able to get the touristic bus at the World Trade Centre. Easy 10-15 minute stroll to Port Vel too.

All in all great hotel, great staff and great location! Thoroughly enjoyed!

Room Tip: Try and pick a high floor for views overlooking Barcelona!

I booked this hotel for the two days after our NCL cruise that started and returned from Barcelona. It's an easy walk from the port bus stop that drops you off from the cruise ship pier. The hotel staff was very nice, spoke English and promised our room would be ready before 3:00 PM check in but it wasn't (oh well we got went sight seeing while waiting). The lobby is nicely appointed, had two apple computers for use and complimentary WiFi. We booked a room for 3-people and was surprised when it was an interior room on the 9th floor overlooking he interior light well, and right below the pool deck. After the first night we were not happy, and after the very good continental breakfast, my wife insisted we ask for a better room. The desk staff would not help us so my wife asked for he manager, and he was able to switch us into a corner suite on the same floor.

If you have a choice and want to stay here, ask for the a Suite. The room is amazing. What a difference from the first night/room. The suite has a separate sitting area, two separate bathrooms and a private bedroom, all with access to a roof top balcony overlooking Avenue Paral.lel.
