We stayed at this hotel on a long weekend away in Barcelona, first thing to say is that it was very quick and easy to get to the hotel by taxi cost 21 euros. The hotel itself is a modern tower hotel with everything you would expect from a 5 star hotel ( I would say though that it is probably a 4 star in the UK ). Its location well that depends what you are in Barcelona for if it is business, shopping or going to watch Barca then you will not get a better location. If you are there to spend the evenings strolling The Ramblas then this will involve either a trip on the Metro or a Taxi. We found the Metro to be convient, cheap and regular it took (10 mins) to The Ramblas which to be honest was no inconvienence. There are some eating places locally to the hotel but not that great. Overall for what we paid and the standard of the accomodation this was a good choice for our weekend in Barcelona.
