“Not a good experience”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Do not stay on weekends as there are many party's in the neighborhoods and they Party all night.
Sleeping is next to impossible.The hotel has admitted that this happens most weekends.
After a very sleepless weekend the fire alarm sounded Monday morning around 5.30 am and everybody had to vacate . Turned out it was a false alarm.

We liked this hotel in the suburbs because of the relatively low cost, easy access from major highways, free breakfast, and free parking. It is conveniently close to the railroad station (10 min walk) from where you can quickly get to downtown Barcelona (25 min). With one ticket, purchased at the railroad station, you can take the train (R1 or R4), then the subway, and even the funicular up Montjuic. The hotel is nice and modern. The devil is in the details, however. Flaws were everywhere. The access to the parking lot had such a steep and short ramp (actually just a cut-out curb) that I feared I would scrape the front of my sporty car. I actually backed in to avoid damage. The parking lot is fenced in but the gate was never closed. When we arrived, we were offered a room that smelled of a smoker. Instead of apologizing, the desk grudgingly gave us another room. The room was too hot but had no thermostat, so we had to open the window. The sink leaked near the drain. Both soap dispensers were empty and not replaced by the maid (we stayed two nights). I did not complain because the desk staff had been unfriendly.

Breakfast variety was poor and badly organised, could have been better. Other than that we enjoyed staying in this hotel. Staff are helpful, good location to get to Barcelona. If you are staying longer than a week get a Barcelona card, it is worth it.

For a very good low price, we were able to get this hotel. Though the room was quite small for family of 4, atleast they allowed us to stay in one room. Fairly good continental breakfast every day. Close to rail station, about 10 mins walk (to Plaza de Catalunya is about 25 mins by train). Also fairly close to the airport and the city. Well located near the A2 freeway. If you renting a car, the parking is free. Only drawback is that there no good restaurants nearby except some pizzarias near the rail station.

We stayed at this hotel in august 2011 for seven nights,on arrival the staff were very nice and helpful,room was clean, tidy maybe a little bit small for 3 people, but your out all day so does this really matter ? next morning we asked reception staff how to get to barcelona,they spent a good 15min tell us about how to get around and where all the sights are,they could not of been more helpful,10 min walk to train station.Barcelona has a great underground system takes you alround the city with only 3-5 mins between stations.so If you get lost there is lots of friendly staff that are happy to help you on your way.All in all very good hotel, good location helpful and friendly staff would stay here again.There is a night club nereby but we only heard the music for two nights.However it's not that loud

We have stayed here a few times and got to know the town a bit.
It is quite a good location to get to Barcelona from the rail station about 10 mins away. Molins has it's own charm with nice parks, shops and a great old style Cafe. Take a walk around, have a beer or a coffee, some tapas. Take a train to Barca or Sitges.
Some of the reviews are from narrow minded people, take no notice.

We stayed at this location for just one night before our cruise departed. It was a very clean hotel and so lovely...though a little small, I still very much enjoyed it. I couldn't believe how friendly the staff was! We were assisted by 3 different people and each one took the time to help us with questions, points of interest, currency exchange, etc. I have a lot of good things to say about this hotel, but the most memorable was the welcoming staff. They truly made our party of 14 feel welcome in a country we've never visited.
