“Great Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

I could not fault this hotel. Everything was done to a very high standard with great attention to detail and the staff were the friendliest I have experienced in a city hotel. The breakfast was lovely, fantastic selection including lots of fresh fruit and pastries as light as a feather. The nespresso machine was a nice touch. The location was very good and there were so many restaurants and tapas bars in the area that we did not have to travel very far in the evening to find somewhere to eat. We loved wandering around the little streets which led to Santa Maria del Mar, my favourite church and well worth a visit. It would be lovely to stay at this hotel in the summer months when you could use the pool and sunbathing area on the roof to chill out after a busy day of sightseeing. I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I next visit Barcelona.

Stayed here for 3 nights in November. Good location about 15 mins walk from both the Placa de Catalyuna and the Olympic Marina. Rooms are modern, well equipped with free wifi throughout the hotel. Breakfast buffet is a good standard but most importantly the staff were very helpful and attentive throughout our stay.

This hotel is in a great location. It's in a quiet area very near the Gothic Quarter and walking distance to La Rambla. Breakfast was very good, too.

My major complaint was that there weren't any locks on the hotel doors. When you come into your room, you're not able to lock the door from the inside. I took a nap when I arrived at the hotel, and housekeeping opened my door while I was in there....no knocking. I've stayed at hotels around the world, and I've never stayed at one where you couldn't lock the door for safety.

I know the hotel is very new, but after talking to the front desk employees, there isn't a plan to install locks on the rooms in the near future.

I deliberately chose this hotel as it was far enough away from Las Ramblas to avoid any noise issues or having to negotiate the swarms of pickpockets and scam artists that congregate round that area.

The hotel only opened this year and as you would expect is very fresh and bright. The rooms are your average hotel room size, but the decor is tasteful and modern, with Flat screen TV installed and a large selection of English Speaking channels, as many other foreign stations.

The reception staff were fantastic and asked if we wanted tickets for tours or for the football game at the Nou Camp that was on the next day. They were only too willing to help. They also gave us advice on where to go and where not to go, which was crucial if you wanted to avoid the upset of losing your wallet/bag.

The hotel also has a rooftop pool and sunlounge area with great views over the city, but be warned, the pool is not heated, so it was a bit too chilly to try in October for my liking.

Breakfast was included in our rate and again I have to say it was excellent. As with all K&K Hotels, there is Prosecco on hand if you wish to start the morning with a kick, but all the usual fayre is there from normal continental to Scrambled Egg if you wish.

Finally, as I am obsessed with noise in hotels, I would have to give the hotel 5 stars as I heard nothing on both nights of my stay, either in the hotel or from the street outside.

Room Tip: Go as high as possible. We were on 4th floor and that was good enough

We stayed there in july of this year.
Many great things about this hotel.
Clean, great staff - cleaning, breakfast and front desk - amazing location.
The breakfast is decent, nothing especially unique, but the staff are really helpful.
Make sure you have an end room that way you have a view of the park and the street
The pool area is really cramped though the view is brilliant from there.
Make sure you don't get one of the rooms that faces to inside of the building - they are horrible.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the park are a must. Corner rooms in particular are recommended.

I loved this quaint little hotel. I do not have one negative thing to say. It was in the El Born district which a great location close to everything yet not too touristy. The staff was wonderful, comfortable beds, and a great breakfast every morning.

This lovely hotel is perfectly situated in the atmospheric El Born area of the old city with it's cobbled streets, cafes and shops. The hotel overlooks a park and is within easy walking distance of the port, the beach, the Gothic Quarter and The Picasso Museum. The metro is only 5 minutes walk away - making it simple to reach other areas of the city and the various stunning Gaudi buildings and Park Guell.
Our hotel room was clean, quiet and very comfortable with the coffee and tea making facilities being a real bonus. The buffet breakfasts were delicious - the food was really fresh and the staff were continually replenishing the fruit, the rolls, the eggs and pastries so it did not matter what time you arrived for breakfast! The reception staff were friendly and helpful.
Overall this hotel is a good choice for a short break in Barcelona.
