... very kindly personal is working in this hotel.
The breakfast is also very delicious and freshly.
Habitaciones have a good standard, and are very clean.
The location of the hotel is perfectly, at the beginning of the famous street named 'Ramblas', and directly at 'Plaza Catalunya', in the middle of this beautiful town. Surely a recommendation for staying some days in Barcelona.
I prefer this house since many, many years, and would repeat ever ! Enjoy it !

If there's one thing this hotel has, then it's it splendid location right on the Plaza de Catalunya.
All major means of (public) transport are right there : metro, busses, taxis.
All major touristic hot spots are in short walking distance.

Good clean hotel with all modern conveniences. Just a shame about the sometimes lousy wifi.
Very helpfull and understanding staff : they let us take our rooms earlier and allowed to stay a bit longer (one of us being rather ill).

Just back from a 3 day trip in Barcelona. Was very impressed by the hotel. Location could not be better, right on Place de la Catalunya.

Room was very comfortable. Best shower ever. The shower and wc were both in separate glass cubicles, that was a little bit odd, but was quirky. The wash basin was just inside the door, that was my least favourite characteristic of the room, so that's not bad!

The staff were very friendly and helpful, and on check in they offered their advice as tour guides.

The bed is one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. In short, Can't wait to revisit.

I stayed in January 2014. The hotel location is excellent overlooking a pretty square with fountain and surrounded by excellent shopping. Taxis are available a few metres from the hotel. The hotel itself is of a boutique type. We arrived early and were checked in straightaway. The hotel staff ere all pleasant and helpful. The only critcism is that their is no bathroom as such, just a shower/toilet with a glass sliding door. The toilet area is very small. The sink is located in the bedroom itself. Affords little privacy if you are sharing with a friend! The room does get hot but the air conditioning is good. Overall a decent 4 star and pleasant stay.

This is our first input in Tripadvisor as we find this is important to know.
A shame to write this after an otherwise nice stay in the hotel, which has a good location and a friendly reception and ok rooms.( We had booked a Suite in order to accomodate our children 13, 14 years as there is only 2 double room in the hotel being connected)
We found out that someone had been in the room and taken a pair of expensive sunglasses out from a backpack. The rest of value was luckily in the safe. We know they where missing as the backpack had not been not unpacked or the Sunglasses been used on our Weekend Trip .
We also experienced that the door to the room was open, returning from a tour in town. Not very pleasant!
The responds we got from the hotel was that nothing was found in the room and given to lost and found???? This was not a surprise to us.
I doubt we will return to this hotel!

Room Tip: We found that booking a suite for 4 people was more expensive than two nice rooms for the space you...

Very short ride from the airport, stayed here for 2 nights before heading off on a cruise. Arrived at noon & our room was ready.. We had a great view of the plaza... Very nice modern amenities. Stopped at front desk to ask some questions about where to have lunch, and where the on and off bus was?! (I recommend on off bus if you've never been to Barcelona , it really gives you a good sense of where everything is... and it's right outside at the Plaza Catalunya)... Hotel is close everything Hotel staff was very wonderful

I like location of this hotel. Comfortable room. They mad free upgrade to city view room with King size bed. I didn't like shower room at all but it didn't make my vacation bad. I would not recommend to go to their restaurant for those who watches the budget. It is really delicious but also expensive. Overall it is a nice hotel with great set of tv channels and I will definitely come back

Room Tip: Ask for room with city view
