“I love it here...”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Sure this hotel is not close to the Tourist hang outs but not far either. a 50 euro took me to Sacrada Familia and a famous corniche and back.
The free shuttle service is an option one needs to opt for if you are ahead in time for your flight, it leaves every half an hour.
The breakfast spread is good with scrambled eggs and chorizos always on the menu... You can request for a fried egg and the chef will definitely oblige.
The dinner and Lunch menus are simple but filling.
To digest the meal there are a few shops in the vicinity that you could visit including a small mall, an electronic store, a sporting goods store and a grocery store...
It was sure a fun trip to see so many pork legs (prosciutto/ham legs)

Our intention was to find hotel close enough to El Prat dl Llobegrat Airport as we had an early morning light to Granada the ollowing morning. The clincher for us to book the hotel is the free airport shuttle.

Room was spacious for the urban double room. Airy bedroom. There are spa and gym. Clean and convenient.

The hotel is close to shopping malls and wholesale warehouses. Mcdonalds is close to the hotel and it's even 24hrs.

Spend one night after cruise. Arrived to the hotel in the evening after sightseeing tour and spend few hours in the shopping mall nearby.
Hotel offers good rooms with nice beds and free wifi.
Free shuttle bus to the airport was already fully booked for early morning, so ordered separate bus for 15 of us for 85 Eur.
Hotel is very good located for early morning departures or for transit passengers who need to spend a night in Barcelona.

Spacious rooms - useful transfer to and from the airport. Didn't have to wait more than 5 mins at the airport and left on time for the return. Check in staff very helpful. Free wi-fi. Good continental breakfast in large airy room. Large shopping mall next door for snacks and any last minute purchases. Great value - comfortable beds - well recommended.

Room Tip: Try and get one of the premium rooms if you want a view

If you're looking for a hotel that is close to the airport, don't bother with this one. We arrived at the airport at 23.30 and were leaving the next day at 06.00, so we wanted to get as much sleep as possible. Even though the hotel is theoretically only a 10 min drive away, their shuttle bus only leaves every 30 min. Apparently we had just missed one (how convenient) so we had the choice of waiting around and arriving at the hotel 40 min later or getting a taxi (25 euros) and getting some much needed sleep. We took the taxi. The week before we stayed in a hotel right next to Las Ramblas, and with the airport city bus (10 euros return), we were at the city centre in 20 min. That bus leaves on the dot every 5-10 min.

When we complained to the hotel, they did not care at all, in fact, the front desk staff laughed. For a 4* hotel, the service is appalling and the 'closeness' to the airport is completely misleading. It's just not worth staying in this hotel: not cheaper, not closer (time-wise) unless you happen to catch the shuttle bus and it's in the middle of an industrial wasteland.

Room Tip: Don't stay near the lift. Whilst we were checking in, a poor man had to get out of bed and ask t...

Nicely decorated hotel, with a set of all necessary: convenient beds, a spacious bathroom (with a glass door!), fast wi-fi. Food in a bar normal and not too expensive. A little long there is a check-in in the evening andnight becauseonly one person works at a reception.
The code in the lift (which not always works from the first) is necessary. The free minibus to hotel goes everyone half an hour from G parking at the airport. Only be more careful, we had an unpleasant situation with the pickpocket who tried to snatch out a bag directly in the bus, but after unsuccessful attempt jumped out directly under way of the car!
Near hotel the big supermarket Auchan, also is a free shuttle to Barcelona (necessary to register on recepcion). Also there is a regular bus (a stop behind hotel? journey of 2 euros).
Very convenient hotel if you have a late arrival or an early departure or short stay.

We booked this hotel only because of it's location and the "free shuttle" to and from the airport. We were arriving late in the evening (12:00am) and departing early the next morning (6:00am) and were thought this would be more convenient and cheaper than staying in the city with family and having to obtain taxi's for transport. When we arrived at the facility, we were informed that the shuttle was completely full and did not have an opening until 8:30am! When we told them that airport shuttle was the only reason we had booked their hotel, they kindly informed us that the website clearly states it is "per availability." We asked them about taxi's which they informed us there would be no problem getting in the morning.
There were no taxi's around in the morning and we were forced to have the hotel staff call one. This allowed them to take a portion of the 25Euro fee that it cost us for a 7 minute drive to the airport!!!
If we had known it would cost this much, we could have stayed with family in town OR even gotten a cheaper hotel room farther in the city that also offered hotel shuttles!
Must say...this was a very disappointing finish to a wonderful visit to Spain and Rome!
