Reviewed March 19, 2013

We stayed here on an EF Tour. This place was fantastic!

Rooms - the size was very accommodating with modern everything. The shower and bathroom setup were very unique and the bed was better than most that I've had in Europe. The turn-down service and maid service was very efficient. The lack of free WiFi was annoying as their prices were steep. In addition, there was no self laundry service and what they did offer was also very pricey.

Meals - Breakfast was great! It was far more filling than what we have had before and the spread was decent.

Staff - Excellent and very accommodating. They allowed our group to meet in the reception area at night to socialize and unwind. While we did get a bit loud, they were polite in their request for us to keep it down.

Overall, a very nice place, good atmosphere, not tech friendly.

Service at the reception was great, the food is decent but the room where I was staying is a toilet in the living room. We was like in,, Big Brother, "transparent door of the bathroom and shower. Maybe it's okay for people who are married couples but Do not go with friends. All in all a bad recommendation!

Dear guest:
Thank you for taking the time to share your comments online. It is nice you liked our food service and the guest service at reception. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience you did not like the transparent door between the living room and the bathroom. This design is due to give more natural light to the bathroom. For more privacy you can close the living room curtain anytime.
Thank you for staying with us.
Best regards.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2012. The hotel was great value for money, rooms are lovely and we had a great view looking out over the sea from our room on the 7th floor. Breakfast was included in our rate and the choice was excellent, probably the best breakfast I've had in a hotel.

Absolutely no complaints about anything at all. Every member of staff we spoke to was courteous and spoke good English. We enjoyed it so much we are going back on January 19th for another 3 nights.

The hotel is pretty near the metro station and the main train station is just a little further away and is near a lovely beach.

This hotel was chosen by our travel agent. The hotel itself is very modern and somewhat stranger than other hotels. In your room, you walk straight into the bathroom area first which was a bit odd, maybe we are just oldies but it was very strange. Also, unless you are a "couple" it was not very private. The bathroom/toilet were not so discreet. Alas, our stay was enjoyable. The hotel room was clean but did lack tea/coffee making facilities, something the oldies miss. Also no iron in the room which is an inconvenience when you have been traveling for weeks and living out of a suitcase. Staff were friendly and helpful and most spoke good English. This hotel is not close to anything when you are old and unable to walk distances. We had to taxi each time we left. My pick would be to stay close to the city centre unless you are happy to use the public transport.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor for the best views

Stayed here for 10 days while in holiday and had a really lovely modern room on the 16th floor. Great views and air conditioning.

We found staff helpful and friendly, ate in the restaurant, which was very tasty. The buffet breakfast every morning had such a large selection, all of it was delicious.

Great location, near to the metro station and only about a half hour walk to the beach- lots of great little shops to look at on the way.

This hotel is very nice, modern and clean. The staff is very helpful. It is located ~10 minutes from Barcelona by metro and ~6 mins walking from the beach. The beach is sand; nice and clean. There is a promenade along the beach full of restaurants and bars.

The breakfast was excellent, great choice of continental breakfast.

The room is quite large with great cleaning service every day. There is a terrace on the 14th floor with nice view on the town.
The only disappointment was the location of the toilet/bathroom, the door was broken and it was too close to the bed.

I can recommend this hotel to people who want to get to see Barcelona, but do not necessarily want to be accommodated in the rush city centre.

The breakfast starts at 7.30 am.

It definitely is value of money.

We stayed in Rafaelhoteles hotel in Badalona for 3 nights and it was excellent.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were lovely and modern...and there were a lot of English speaking channels on the TV!
Breakfast was good and varied.
But the best bit was the hotel's location. It was about a 10 minute walk from the nearest metro station and similarly about 10 minutes to the beach which we preferred to the Barcelona beaches like barceloneta beach just because there were so many people constantly trying to sell you drinks, etc. In contrast, the Badalona beach was nice and chilled.
Also, we were lucky to have a room where you could see the sea in the distance and gave amazing views of the sunrise.
