Easy to find 5- 10 min walk from Aerobus stop. By Cathedral Square lots of people watching. Hotel clean. Room spacious very big comfy bed with good pillows. Large bathroom with shower/bath enough toiletries. Good mirrors & lighting. Breakfast was plentiful and very efficient, as soon as you sat down a tray with roll & pastries was brought to you followed by fresh squeezed orange juice & very strong coffee !! with hot milk. Then you had a menu to choose eggs cheese meats if you wished but also there was a counter with cereal fruit cakes & bread for toasting. Plenty.
Lovely roof top pool.
Water from mini bar expensive at 2.18 euro a small bottle.
Kettle for hot drinks in room with snaks extra charge.
Would recommend this hotel for Gothic area & Las Rambles (5 min walk).
99% staff very nice & helpful. Arious (I think ) bit of a jobs worth & a missery lets the place down. Lighten up & smile.
Would def go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for floor 5 to be near pool . Also quieter the higher up from the street.

We booked this hotel for its convenient location but would never stay there again after the extremely poor reception we received when we went to check in. We were more than three hours early but as we had requested an early check when we booked we had hoped if our room was not ready we might get a time as to when we could check in. We had travelled for 24 hours direct from Australia is were pretty tired.The man at the front desk was extremely rude and refused to help us. We had a return visit to Barcelona and made sure we didn't make the same mistake of staying here again. Although the hotel is ok and the rest of the staff pleasant this one person spoiled our stay. On top of that when we did get our room later in the day there was rubbish still in the bin.

Room Tip: Rooms small. Don't expect to have special requests considered favourably.

Dear Guest,
We are not very happy reading your comments and we think it is not fair, the ratingy you gave us due that as you pointed your stay was pleasant.
We very much regrett that we could check you in befor 14h due that the date of your arrival the guest they all left at 12. And as you were requesting a king size bed was even more complicated to host you in advance.
Believe us that we allways try to do our best checkin in the guests in advance.
If you were arriving very early the secure way of having the room at your arrival was paying the night before.
I have also check with housekeeping Manager about you comment about the bin, and no incidence was noticed by you during your stay.
We very much regret to know that we didn't do it, and believe us that we work hard in order to please our guest.
Yours faithfully

We stayed here in 2012 for a couple of nights as our second date. We're still together now and look back fondly of our time spent in Barcelona.
The rooms were modern and comfortable with a spacious bathroom. Good location, although we had some troubles finding our way back on foot after a vino or two. There were a good selection of restaurants nearby and Las Ramblas was within easy walking distance.

We stayed here post cruise for three days. It's a small hotel located in the Gothic area. A short walk to Las Ramblas, but far enough away to be quiet. True to its name right near the cathedral. Very clean, nice breakfast (reserve with breakfast included). Good shower, good bed. Only negative- crummy view of neighbors laundry. Nice rooftop pool. We would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is situated in the old city center near the cathedral.

We have stayed in superior room that was surprisingly spacious for a city hotel. The bathroom also was more spacious than I expected. This made our stay all the more pleasant. Although situated in the old city center, the neighborhood isn’t noisy.

Breakfast isn’t cheap. I suppose there are numerous places nearby where you can enjoy breakfast, we’ve opted to have our breakfast in the hotel, and we weren’t disappointed. You can choose from a a la carte menu, and an assortment of pastry and other sweet treats. The atmosphere in the restaurant and on the outside terrace is very nice.

We didn’t use other facilities like the pool. We went to have a look though, just to see what it looked like. It was a pool on a rooftop, with some chairs; nothing fancy, if you want to soak up some sun this is as good a place as any I suppose.

The hotel has a free wifi connection throughout the hotel, which is as it should be. During our stay there were some issues with the connection. Just a small blemish, but nevertheless quit annoying sometimes.

Overall we have had a very nice stay in this hotel, and would consider returning here when coming back to Barcelona again.

Room Tip: Superior room are situated on the corners of every floor. They are very spacious and have 2 big wind...

We stayed here for just one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. It's in a lovely location near the Cathedral (obviously!) and Las Ramblas, but in a mostly pedestrianised area (which means it's quiet). The room was delightful - excellent shower and very comfortable bed. We didn't have breakfast, as we had an early start the next day. But the service was very good and I'd highly recommend the hotel for anyone looking for a central location in Barcelona.
