“Great Location”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Stayed 3 nights on business conference. Best thing about the hotel is its great location. Food, service, quality of furnishings, amenities in room - all average. Room size is spacious, bathroom area is large, separate dressing area. Airconditioning was noisy with little cold air. Arrived 1 day late due to missed connection but room charge was not waived.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with direct lift access to restaurant.

The hotel is located on Catalunya, between 2 stations Universitat and Catalunya, 2 minutes walk to the famous La Rambla, near by you can find the statue of Columbus, aquarium and the Magnum. At the mall there are so many places where you can eat in peace and quite,enjoying the beautiful view of sea and the port..especially cruise ships...Gorgeous! In my opinion the hotel is exceptionally placed, because having the tube station so close, you basically solve a lot of problems... We had a triple room, which consists of two beds joined together and a sofa bed. Cleanliness is exemplary, is daily made after 1 pm....You can find everything you want at the minibar . We did not have the breakfast included in the room price, but we paid 16 euros per person, and I do not regret it, it was great. Near the pool there is also a restaurant and a bar.You should try mojito - it s the best I ve had ! Overall, we really liked the hotel and Barcelona and we gladly return anytime ...

I went to this hotel few days ago and it was good in general! The rooms are spacious and clean and the hotel is huge however you can hear some noise from the outside. The buffet is okay many options but not toooo delicious but the best thing is the location of the hotel. It is close to the metro and la ramblas shopping area. The hair dryer barley dried the hair so you might take your own hair dryer

In general the hotel is nice but a bit expensive

This could have been a great place but, the staff never followed up on anything, never returned calls, never followed up, perpetually made promises and threw them in the circular file as soon as you turned your back. What a shame!

Not only was the Hotel staff a complete disappointment, book the booking company at Venere.com was anything but helpful. No one at their phone could speak english, transfer the call to someone who could or provide a phone number where I could get help. None of this was a problem when they were recommending a hotel, assuring us that the rate included breakfast (a notion rejected out of hand by the hotel manager who referred me to Venere to redress my problem because it was"clearly not his problem" The email I shipped them 3 days ago remains unanswered. I am done with this hotel and, absent a significant adjustment, I am done with Venere who had seved me wll in the past but will not at all in the future.

Room Tip: back of the hotel away from the street

We have stayed in many Barcelona hotels over the years but this one is right up there for a 3-4 star city centre hotel.
Our room (112) was lovely had a very large terrace with sitting and shaded area adjacent to the pool but made private from it by mature bushes, no direct access to the pool though. The room itself was large and cool in the city heat. Shower, wet room with no bath but that was fine with us.
Bar and sitting areas were very comfortable. Pool area had a nice snack bar/restaurant attached under shade.
I left my trousers behind in the cupboard and a week later a friend called in and they were there waiting for me.
Staff friendly and efficient.
Not luxury but good, clean, comfortable and affordable.

Room Tip: Ground floor with terrace, only three available but worth it.

There was a great shower room which you entered and walked through to go to the bedroom.The bedroom had a large sized bed, but was not the biggest of rooms. There was a door opening to the outside deck area which had a plunge pool. This area was very private. From the shower room there was also another room off it, a sitting area. This had a mini bar and seats, also a door out into the decking area.This sitting area was a waste of space to us, as we never used it and and was a bit plain and boring. The staff in the hotel were all polite and helpfull, however we paid extra to have a late departure, but the house keeping staff knocked on our door to hurry us up! This was 45 mins before we were meant to be out!! I would go back to this well located and beautiful hotel.
