Stayed here one night. Room was very nice along with bathroom and rest of hotel, staff friendly and polite and rooftop terrace and bar lovely.
Only problem I had was breakfast, I double checked that it was included and reception said yes. So went and had a coffee along with toast and on check out was charged €10 for it. Maybe just a breakdown in language barrier.
Would stay again.

Thoroughly enjoyed the stay here. Staff where very friendly and helpful - the young waiter on the terrace deck was the best - his knowledge of Gin was exemplary. The breakfast at $10 EU was excellent value and good quality - waiters also where very good - offering travelling tips etc..

The rooms where well appointed and always well cleaned - only downside was the shower not being enclosed fully.

The highlight was the happy hour on the roof - $6EU gin and cocktails in pleasant surrounds - perfect way to start the evening.

The location is nice and quiet, and so close to the rail - easy to get around and safe

Very nice boutique hotel in the center of Barcelona. 30 m' from the metro station. Very friendly and good service. The rooms are not big but very comfortable and well designed. Not far from the airport bus station.
I have been here for 4 nights and was very pleased. The only imperfection is the breakfast, which is nice but the variety is small.

Pros: The room was large. The breakfast was good (fresh melon, ham, salmon, etc.) The staff were very polite and helpful. For us, the location was good; we seemed centrally located to many of the sites we wanted to see. The terrace on the roof is quite nice; the accompanying mojitos were incredible.

Cons: The bed and pillows were very uncomfortable. Twice in our week-long stay, we awoke in the middle of the night because the A/C had shut off. (August in Barcelona is hot.) I had almost no wi-fi service with my iPhone in my room, though it worked in the lobby or the Zinc Bar. It is difficult (if not impossible) to keep from flooding the bathroom while taking a shower, as the shower is not in any way enclosed.

this is a really brilliant accomodation. best price/quality choice! charming place with piano, awesome interiors, stylish and popular roof top terrace, though located in a very quiet block.
not very close to Plaza Catalunia. ~15 minutes walk (thoug only 1 minute to red line metro station)
rooms are spacious and well equiped. we did not wish for anything more. it is a uniquely good place!

We stayed here in August 2013. The hotel is modern with high quality rooms. The reception/ resturant area is very nice but the star is the roof top terrace which is lovely for an evening drink. The breakfast is of good quality with many smoked meats and fish. The hotel is also very quiet as it is away from the main tourist hub. It is around a 20 min walk to las ramblas, 40 mins to nou camp and 40 mins to beach. However there is a subway 30 secs from hotel for those less inclined to walk.

Would highly recommend this hotel.
