Good location across from the beach we had a sea view from our window! The bedroom was a good size for 3 people sharing, the bathroom was lovely with a good shower and decent size bath also a hair dryer and hotel toiletries selection that were re-stocked Dailey. The rooms were kept to a high standard very clean and we were given information on a Dailey letter if anything important was happening such as a bank holiday . . .when nothing is open! No shops! Just a few restaurants what would we do in the UK on a bank holiday with no shops!!
The nearest metro station was a ten minute walk we purchased a transport card for 4 days which we could then use on the trains, buses, metro and the tram this was a bargain! There is a bus stop outside the hotel but we just used the metro.
The breakfast was a good selection of fruit, pastries,jams, bread, some hot food, tea and coffee, different juices the only thing was the restaurant was quite small for a hotel of its size, you could eat outside if the weather was fine but then you have the smokers outside with you.
The hotel also had free wifi the username and password are changed every couple of days for security. There was no swimming pool as far as I know which was a shame! unless we were not told about it. The staff were very friendly I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

Being able to look out the window and see the sea was the best thing about this property. It was on Red Bus route which helped us see the city and about 8 blocks from a shopping center. The people at the desk were friendly but not helpful. The breakfast was adequate and there were several nice places to eat nearby. The air conditioning never got cool and the housekeepers turned it off when they left the room. Not bad, just not good.

Room Tip: Make sure you can see the sea

We stayed here for 4 days. The hotel is located in a good location next to the beach. We asked the reception to have a room with a view of sea and they kindly changed our room. The room were so clean and chic, neatly arranged. The breakfast was included in our service and it was awesome. I really enjoyed my visit in Barcelona.I will definitely choose the same hotel for the next time.

Me and my friend stayed for 4 nights here and were extremely satisfied & happy.
The staff was very helpful at any time of the day or night. The location was slightly far from the city centre but was very well connected. The nearest metro station was 15 mins walk and the city centre was then just 10 mins ride. The rooms were always clean and made up as we returned to the hotel in the evening. The wifi was free and with good connectivity. We didn't try the breakfast, so no comments on that. Overall, it was a very comfortable stay and would love to come back here.

The moment we walked into the hotel, there was a nice scent that greeted us. Not to mention the lobby looked really nice. Staff was really friendly. our reservation somehow got lost but they fixed it no problem. we had a nice corner room and it was clean and the bathroom was big. We were near the beach which was nice. Bus 41 outside took us to City center and also took as back to walking distances. We took the metro sometimes too but found that the bus was much more convenient. Will recommend others to stay at this hotel based on my experienced. they advertised 4 stars and we got 4 star quality and the price was good too.

Checked in late - nice relaxing reception area with the Orange Sofas , nice air con settings ( i have to say)

Checked in well .. could be more enthusiastic and fun approach from the receptionist - however kept is reserved and calm - equally good.

Dinner - nice well tuned waiting staff - just need to react to guest in a more personal way

Housekeeping - Great Job - the lady who cleaned how Room - very sociable however professional -respectful - the lady who cleaned room 1st floor 20/08/13.

Location - just minutes away to the beach - fresh waters..... loved it.

Would come back any time.( Viva Espana)

Room Tip: Room with a view - facing beach

Spent 3 nights at hotel in August, room clean as was most of hotel and it is not too expensive, but it is not a 4 star hotel! The staff at reception were either very good or completely indifferent to peoples' requests I do not know if they were short of staff but there was often a large queue waiting to be seen. We requested additional pillows (only 2 in the room) on a number of occasions both by phone and at reception, sadly they only arrived on the last day.
Agree the breakfast is good with plenty on offer, but there is no help offered by staff on what the procedure is on your first visit, nor if it is self or waitress service. The coffee out of the machine was cold and I was told to use the alternative nespresso machine, however after 3 attempts all of which failed, they admitted the machine could be tempermental!
The best way to get to the city centre is by bus, the stop is only a block away from the hotel and costs only 2 Euro's. The closest Metro, is a good 10-15 minute walk especially in the heat.
If staying and wanting to go to the beach ensure you take your own beach towels or you have to rent them from the hotel. None of the rooms appear to have a balcony so it can be difficult to dry swim clothes and towels after use
Also be aware that you will be charged additional local taxes on top of your room rate, not large but could be a problem if you were short of money at the end of your holiday.
There are a limited number of restaurants around the hotel and the beach area only has 3 restaurants which vary in quality and price.
I would say this hotel is perfect for the business traveller with lots of meeting rooms but limited social areas, I would not recommend it for families.
