The hotel was nice overall. The location is too far from the city centre. The hotel rooms are bit old but clean enough. There is a bus and tram stop nearby, but no direct connection to the city centre. Though there was a direct Night bus connection. There are a couple of restaurants and a small super market in the same street of the bus stop. The neighborhood was quiet. The staff were very friendly.

A good hotel, it was clean EVERY WARE and staff friendly. Not far off the city (+- 45 min) by tram and metro. The airo must be turned on the holl year and not only in the summer!!! You can open the window if you don't lisen too the cars.

stayed in the hotel in in oct 2013 ,although some difficulties faced by the taxi driver from the airport,but was surprised that the taxi driver didnot charge extra ,definitely appreciable.The hotel is a walkable distance from the market and tram station.Had a nice walk around.You can even order Pizza in the hotel.I shifted to a place near the La Ramblas after 2 days ,travel by tram is so easy and comfortable in Spain. Hotel check in and check out was quick,and the rates are very competitive.

Superbly linked to the center of Barcelona by tram and subway (change T3 tram to subway at Palau Reial when going downtown, or viceversa when returning). Very clean rooms, friendy and somewhat helpful staff. We especially enjoyed breakfast! It may sound pricey but is the cheapest solution around: 12 euro if standalone breakfas is bought or 9 euro if at least 3 courses are bought in the first morning. Try elsewhere and the heapest you'll find will be a 15 euro pizza. Many types of food to choose from and with a special touch for those who seek green or vegan food. Also, delicious meat! In order to have wifi you have to ask every day the password from the reception (it's printed on a piece of paper, you may take them freely from reception desk). In the lobby there is a baggage weighing scale (1 euro/each use), best solution for those who want to leave the hotel with their luggage already packed in accordance to the restritions of some low-cost airlines.

There is a supermarket nearby (Mercadona), 5-10 min of walking or just take the tram one station. In case of late night shortage on food or drinks, try the Shell gas station across the supermarket. We will definitely come there again!

The staff was rude, and gave us poorly information. To far to the centrum. And everything nearby was closed. So we had to take the bus to get food and drinks. The hotel resturant was also closed......
