“Not as I expected”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I think it was an OK hotel. The beds are very uncomfortable. They are hard. I didn't find the staff friendly at all. The rooms don't have hair dryers and I had to go to the front desk three times to get one. I wanted ice and they don't even have wine buckets. I had to go down to the bar and get ice every time I wanted some. The restaurant location is beautiful. The food is in no way five star. The location is not good. You are not close to anything but the train station.. I like to be able to walk to things. We went on to Madrid and Lisbon from Barcelona.. Those hotels were true five stars and the same price as this one.

Wondeful view from the rooms, and the restaurant at the top has a five-star menu with a view over all the city, go at night and it will be th best experience you can get in the city.

Spacious, clean and elegant rooms. If you can afford it, I wouldn't think it over!

TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT :)

This is a good place to stay the rooms are spacious and very clean with great views, and amazing pillows, the breakfast is excellent with plenty of choice, we came here nine of us to celebrate my husbands seventh birthday, the waiting staff presented him with a cake and sang Happy Birthday. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The best rooms are on the higher floors.

Stayed in Executive room. A great Hotel with extremely friendly staff, Spa Facilities and ideally located to get to all the visitor attractions (only 2 miles from Las Ramblas). Direct train link to Airport from Sants Station (50 meters) is an added benefit. Velentina (reception) and Jesus (Concierge) were particularly welcoming and helpful. Hotel also noted Birthday visit and organised cake with a candle in the room - a very nice touch which was very much appreciated.

A great room and really helpful and friendly staff (who spoke excellent English). Our room was fabulous and the metro station allowed us to travel to any part of Barcelona quickly and easily. The views from breakfast were great (as was the food). I would definitely recommend this hotel.
