Stayed here for 4 nights in order to celebrate my brother's 21st birthday, and meet family from Australia in the city.
The hotel is perfectly located - easy walk to some beautiful places!
Yes the pool was small (as over reviews have said), BUT the views from up there are INCREDIBLE - some of the best of the Old Town. And the pool is just perfect for cooling off in the hot Spanish weather.
We didn't have a problem getting deck chairs at any point!
Security in the hotel is great too, so never felt like we had to worry about belongings or didn't feel safe.
Absolutely loved the whole feeling of the hotel - it is very minimal, but it was clean and spacious.
In the room there was a safe, hairdryer and shower gel - as well as TV (did lack English channels, but wasn't on holiday to watch tv! haha).
Room was cleaned every day - to a very high standard.
The corridors were slightly dark, but I wouldn't mark the hotel down for that - it was just a bit odd! But didn't bother us at all as we weren't exactly hanging about in the corridors.
There is also a lovely outside area downstairs where we could all meet before going out, however it is a shame this was not open 24 hours a day.
Overall, I would definitely stay here again if in Barcelona, and would recommend this hotel to anyone that was going to the city.
