The hotel itself looks very pretty from the outside but the rooms are decent at best. The bed wasn't that comfortable for my brother and they're very small (we slept on twin beds)... I haven't slept on that since I was kid. They also don't supply conditioner or shampoo. They have an "all in one shampoo and body wash" and...

This is a very good hotel in a brilliant place at the end of Via Laietana near to the sea, but also excellently positioned near to the main part of Barcelona, with easy access to leisure, stations, shopping and restaurants. Will definitely stay here on my next visit

Had a short break at this hotel and it was excellent. Our room was at the back where there wasn't much of a view, but as we were out mostly that wasn't an issue. And being at the back meant there was no chance of being disturbed by noise from the Cathedral square. There was a Christmas market on while...
