“We booked for the convenience, and were pleasantly surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

When we booked this hotel, we were looking for a location with quick access to the airport, with easy access to downtown. There is a free shuttle from the airport, and the Metro stop is a 5 minute walk away. The Metro is easy to use, safe, and inexpensive.

The surprise was this was a very nice hotel, full of nice features! High tech showers in the bath, interesting architecture (the 'flying saucer' restaurant on top is now closed), and glass floors exposing interesting underground features in the elevator lobby. Frankly, unlike some other reviewers, we found the staff to be most helpful and polite!

There isn't anything in the immediate area, however the gas station next door does include a small convenience store, good for snacks and beverages..

The free shuttle operates on a set schedule, without any runs between 12:20 and 5:00 P.M. If that is when you land a taxi to the hotel is about 20 euros. You can take the Metro, but there isn't a direct line.

This hotel was fabulous! Stayed here on the final leg of a three week trip to Europe. Was very comfortable, clean and rested really well. Very unique, up to date and modern. Had a shuttle bus that took you into town and picked you up so that was very nice to save money on a cab into the city. Shuttle took us to the airport when we departed. Everything was great. Would stay again!

Fantastic hotel with fantastic view over a part of the Barcelona. The staff is very helpful and speak perfect English. Very good connections to the city centre with metro station nearby. I will be there next year, too.

The outside of this hotel looks very industrial,as you walk in you notice lots of unusual seating in the foyer, contemporary plush lay flat on your back cubes, flying saucer seats....a big drinks bar and a reception that doesn't look like a conventional reception!
All this and I haven't even reached the bedroom yet!
The lifts require you to use a touch-screen destination control system.
As soon as you enter your room that shiny floor theme from the lobby continues and you struggle to work out what is a wall and what is a door, you begin by touching everything to work out what it is. Everything is either black or glass or chrome and the bathroom is open plan with wardrobe doors and toilet/shower doors all looking alike. Even inside the wardrobe is mirrored.
The shower has horizontal water jets as well as rainshower head and the glass wall that separates this from the toilet becomes the light.
The towels are fantastic, thick and heavy. Now for the things I DID NOT LIKE:
As soon as I sat down on the bed I found a big black hair on the sheet! Yuk. The bed linen was not the best quality, certainly the worst out of all 5 Spanish hotels on this trip.
I hated the complimentary toiletries, gaudy greens and orange with sickly fruit aromas. Couldn't even use the soap. This is a first for me.
Lastly, had a very bad experience with our room service order, the chips were not cooked properly and still hard inside,I complained and someone came to the room and she picked up a chip and squashed it between her fingers and said " to me that is cooked" to which I said " I am not stupid".
It was taken away and we were brought a replacement and were given some complimentary fruit salad which helped to make up for that rude insinuation.
Breakfast was faultless with yet more giggle inducing designs. Coffee was poured by dedicated coffee pourers, that's what I call civilised.

Room Tip: All rooms are very bewildering, miracle guests don't all emerge with broken noses and bruises.

My wife and I visited this hotel in July 2013. As we drove up it looked space age. I was expecting to see George Jetson and his dog arrive by space coach. On to the hotel. A real step up for hotels near an airport. Check in was fast. Lobby and seating area very clean and orderly. The room was very nice.Good bed, shower, internet connection, cold AC, no American TV channels. We went down to the bar and had Tapas and Cerveche. Very nice. They provide a free shuttle to the airport. This my friends is a 27 Euro benefit as opposed to taking a cab. Great place. Would stay here anytime I am flying out of Barcelona. A funny note: The nice girl at the desk told us at check in that breakfast was 25 Euros per person or if we booked the night before we could get a special deal of 15 Euros per person. Converted into USD that would be $34.00 or the special deal of $20.00 per person for breakfast. It is safe to say we had breakfast at the Delta lounge at the airport. Spain's breakfast are expensive and not very good. This entire Country needs to touch base with breakfast reality. Ole'

I loved this hotel and it's design. The staff was very friendly and the rooms are absolutely beautiful. There's only a couple of downers about it.
1. The area where it is located is really really bad and sketchy, unless you fancy a jaunt in the ghettos of Barcelona.
2. Nothing near it what so ever.
3. The shuttle service to and fro the airport is very minimal. Don't listen to there website. If you have an early morning, late evening flight, or mid afternoon (siesta time) flight, you can forget about the shuttle service.
Otherwise, it's good for an over night connector.

I have stayed in this hotel for 12 nights in a standard room. Bed was firm, which is very good and the shower was modern and with different shower head/massage. But I found the front desk staff not very polite or helpful, I have lost my bank card in the hotel and nobody was able to give me any message about it. I of course canceled my card although I didnt have to, because while I was checking out from the hotel, I got my card back. Would have been smarter if they left me a message that they found it. Wifi connection was very poor all the time, I rather borrowed a connection cable. The location - 16mins by metro to Espanya, 25 minutes to Catalunya. Well, quiet place but far from the city. The pool is not a part of the hotel, its a independent gym/pool connected to the hotel. Fitness studio/spa costs 14€, plus additional 2€ for swimming cap. Breakfast are not as good as they seem at first sight. Good selection of fruits, almost no vegetables. Good selection of sweet pastry, but no bread. Ciabbata and toasts only. And one more thing - the walls in room are rather thin, man can hear neighbours speaking. Average and good designed hotel.
