I stayed here in october 2012, with my boyfriend. This hotel was a bargain when we got the deal, and lived further than our expectations! The hotel is modern and classy. There is a bar near the reception which is nice to sit in, and the restaurant serves good (but slightly expensive) food. Everything about this hotel is quality. The rooms are lovely, very modern, very light and airy and good views overlooking barcelona. There is a small swimming pool at the top of the hotel, which i didnt go in due to the time of year, but got engaged on that roof tower, so i cannot fault it. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would love to go back :)

Good rooms, friendly staff, a nice restaurant (more breakfast/ lunch but in Barcelona why eat at the hotel?). Very small rooftop pool but fantastic views from the terrace and decent food and drinks up there. Good location too opposite a supermarket and some retail shops. Lovely natural light in all bedrooms. A good hotel to base yourself at for a weekend in Barcelona.

We went to a holiday in Barcelona for 3 days, end of December, was a good place to stay
very simple clean. Good location 5 minutes walk from metro and buss station. If you want to go to Barcelona as a tourist - location is perfect.
Good value of money!

We stayed at the hotel for a busy bank holiday weekend, upon arrival we noted the funky decor and bar, the staff were polite and helpful and our room was spacious and clean with a very good bathroom, the blackout shutters were handy for an afternoon snooze. the location of the hotel is very good, there are metro, bus and tram stations literally outside the front door and the beach is a short taxi ride away otherwise, there is also a shopping centre opposite, the roof top pool was very tranquil with good views across the city. we would love to return and stay here again

This hotel is in a great location - a 20 min walk to the beach or a short taxi ride, although I'd opt for the walk as it's great to take in the local action and also the traffic lights will drive you crazy as they're at every single junction, which makes the ride longer.

The staff are excellent, free wifi and this will be the 2nd time I've stayed at the hotel during the peak season and whilst the famous Sonar festival is on (between 13th - 17th June), however, if you aren't a party person, I would suggest avoiding this hotel at these times as they throw a few parties on the roof during this time, which renders the rooftop pool terrace inaccessible for a few days.

It's a little pricey and if you're sharing with a friend - be warned - ALL the bathrooms in each room of the hotel do not allow any privacy due to the fact that it's open to see all from the outside. The toilet is, of course, with a door.

Breakfast went up by 3 Euros this year, but they really do offer one of the best breakfast buffets we've ever had, however, at 18 Euros a pop, you would hope so! There is also a huge shopping centre opposite that offers cheper places to eat and also some good clothes shops.

Room Tip: I think pretty much all the rooms are the same but the cleaning staff will bug the life out of you a...

Watch out, this hotel pretends to offer free WiFi internet, yet the free service is extremely slow and is limited to web browsing only, everything else, including email, is considered "business" and hast to be paid at ridiculous rates.

No baggage service (the bell captain watches amused while you carry the luggage yourself)
