We booked this hotel based on location, price and tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed on any count!

Located between the Drassanes and Paral-lel metro stations is was easy to get to from the airport. Easy walk to Rambla Del Raval for bars and restaurants and also the much better known Rambla and Barri Gottic areas. Not far from MareMagnum and port area either. This is a great city to walk around although metro and local buses abound too.

Our initial booking price was very cheap as this is not anywhere near a peak time. We did upgrade to a room (909) with the most fantastic view of the city including Sagrada Familia (Usually €20 but offered to us at €10 - probably as hotel was not full). Rooms don't have tea making facilities but you can get a vending machine coffee in the lobby for €1 if needed - they also have snacks and drinks and a pay-as-you-go internet area.

Breakfast buffet on the ground floor is served between 7 and 10:30 and if bought before travelling was priced at £22 per person per day and locally only €12 p/p/d with a discount for a whole stay booking. Options are quite extensive - they catered for hubby and my very different tastes.

The modern rooms have showers, large flat screen TV's a desk, chair, wardrobe with large safe and comfortable beds. We had extra room due to the upgrade (even room enough for me to perform my daily stretching and core exercise regime which is not possible in many hotels.). Floor to ceiling panoramic windows in this room were complemented by the photomural above the bed (can be seen on official photo's).

Views for the roof are great although I would not recommend using the unheated pool in Jan! There is also a small gym with bikes, cross trainers and a 'home gym' type machine in the basement. Enough to give you a simple total body workout and also room on floor for stretching etc.

If you checkout early and need to leave bags there is a secure room. There are lots of useful leaflets in the lobby, comfortable seating and the ubiquitous 'left books' library. Staff were friendly and given our lack of either Catalan or Castiliano they were also excellent communicators in English and I also heard then conversing with other guests in German.

For snacks, large bottles of water or any other little extra that you may fancy (late night chocolate attack!) there is also a little Carrefour supermarket opposite.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the view or go up on the roof terrace if weather is not too bad!

Wonderful in every way, clean stylish rooms, friendly staff, central location and nice breakfast. It is a private owned and designed hotel which means everything has been thought through, even lockers to put luggage into when waiting for flight.

Hotel close to La Rambla and metro station (Drassanes - Green L3).

Room was very simple with modern furniture and nice shower. Cleaned daily to v. good standard.

Reception and breakfast staff very friendly and helpful.

Good breakfast with wide variety of hot, cold food and drinks.

Nice terrace on 11th floor (9am-10pm) with tiny swimming pool.

Hotel entrance is constantly locked and can be only opened by room card which is good.

Some visitors might find corridors too dark or lack of English TV channels annoying but I would only complain about slamming doors to the rooms (especially during the night).

After checking out you can leave your luggage in the hotel and use the lockers which are on -1 floor (cost only 2 euros per locker). They also have luggage weight in the same room with info on the airlines allowance.

Definitely would return.

I stayed here for a couple of nights.
The hotel is located on a quiet street close to a metro station and bank machines.
The staff were helpful, friendly and cute.
The hotel was clean with the rooms had a modern feel to them.
The only negative was the breakfast buffer which was not as varied as some places i have been to.
However i would consider going there again.
You cant go wrong with the place

Stayed here recently for 2 nights after a cruise. Great location - a few minutes walk from the Ramblas and very near the cruiser port. Great breakfast. It is worth staying there just for the rooftop view of Barcelona!
