We booked this hotel for a party of 6 to celebrate a 50th birthday. Ii had reservations about this hotel primarily due to its location as i could not find it on any Barcelona maps! On arrival at the airport we were collected by the Hotels free shuttle service after a 30 minute wait which was'nt a problem. The Hotel is modern, clean and quite stylish. The room also has a free safe and a minibar with complementary water. We stayed at the front of the Hotel and had good lond distance viewsof the Olympic Stadium and the Catalan Museum. The location of the Hotel is strange as its almost deserted in the local roads, the area is primarily an industrial/business area but this has no bearing on the Hotel. There is an Ikea store close by and a Carrefour shopping Mall close by which is very busy, within The Mall there are Pizza / chinese/fastfood restaurants which you would find in most Malls. We chose to eat out so i cannot comment on the Hotels evening meals, we did have the continental breakfast at the Hotel which was included in the break. this was ok but i could not understand the cold scrambled eggs sat there every morning which was nice but cold! The Hotel provides a free shuttle service to Plaza Espana at 1015 and 1115 and they collect you at 1830 and 1930. this needs to be booked prior to the day and the 1015 was always booked up. You therefore have to book them early to get a place. If you are unlucky to get a place (as we were) we took a taxi. The fares for some reason varied from cab to cab and ranged from 6 euros to 9 euros. If you wanted to go to the Beach area and go to the Beach or restaurant it would cost you 15 to 18 euros. We never used public transport. The spa is fine and consists of sauna/steam room/large jacuzzi is fine and we used it several times. Overall an enjoyable stay and have no complaints, i would recommend this Hotel for somebody who wanats to get away from the hustle bustle of the city but still within easy reach by shuttle/taxi/public transport.
