Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The main lobby, with complementary drinks, was stylish and very welcoming. We also ate a very good quality buffet breakfast here, with a wide choice of food and drinks enjoyed in the lush comfortable surrounding of the lobby. As soon as you leave the lobby though, the corridors feel dated, dingy and seedy. There is a wide choice of different style/theme rooms here, and i think you could experience a very different stay depending which you pick. Our room was the 'Gran Suite' (white black & red with a hot tub in the room and a circular bed.) We thought it looked cool & modern in the photos. We were a bit disappointed to be honest, the pictures show a large square hot tub, that 2 people could lay in, ours had a smaller round tub, that wasn't very comfortable to lie in, and not comfy for 2 people to stretch out in. The pictures show a bright white room, ours was a bit dingy, due to broken lights and generally the white not being as bright anymore as it was a bit dated & dirty. Unfortunately the room had not been kept in good condition, and it was a little bit dirty, but the colour scheme made it look far worse than it probably was to be fair, a lot of white tiles & furniture, all the scuffs looked like dirt and the grout discoloured added to it looking unclean, the marks on the black walls looked icky in this type of room, that is clearly going for a vibe to encourage sexy time, so you didn't want to see white stains up the walls, with the tilting mirror in front of the bed and the rest of the design. To be fair, we liked this theme, thinking it was fun for a night away, but with this type of place it needs to be super super clean. As instead of arriving and feeling sexy and that fun times were ahead of us, we felt like we didn't want to touch too much or look to closely at stains/marks, it really ruined the vibe of our night away at this adults only hotel. The shutters on the windows and the window in the bathroom only opening into a brick space with pipes etc, The toilet room, felt cold and creepy with the red colour bricks and nothing to soften it, it felt very oppressive. But again, if the rest of the main room had been immaculate I think these other things wouldn't have felt as bad. The hot tub hadn't been cleaned properly as when we filled it, it had weird blue glittery slimy stuff, i can only presume from the previous guests, so we had to empty, clean and refill it. The bed was soft & comfortable and the sheets clean. This hotel could be amazing, if the rooms matched up to the lobby. NOTE to MANAGEMENT - This hotel is clearly aimed at couples who will be having a good time - which is great- ( and its what we were expecting) but if this is the clients you are aiming at - then you have to put extra time into cleaning over a regular hotel and must ensure that the rooms are immaculate! As otherwise it quickly goes from a sleek sexy room to seedy and gross.

Beautiful boutique hotel. Extremely reasonably priced. A very calm tranquil vibe and each room ( we stayed in two due to our own mistake) are immaculately furnished, clean, spacious and well lit. Jordy the manager (?) Was extremely friendly and handsome 😘:)

Nice hotel in a good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Comfy room but shower was quite small. Surrounding area might have felt a bit seedy at times but we never felt unsafe. Was approximately 5 mins to Poble Sec metro station and lots of supermarkets around the area

the bed was comfortable, pillows a little hard. The sofa was very uncomfortable. The staff were very friendly and super helpful, I would definitely recommend this hotel. Although we were safe around the hotel, it is not a well populated area

I attempted a 3 night stay at this "boutique hotel" but felt the need to check out after just 90 minutes. After 20 years of travelling for work, this is the first time I've ever had an issue with a hotel to the level that I've felt I was not able to stay there. The hotel is located in the backstreets covered in graffiti. It's an old tired building that looks like a jail from the outside and it requires urgent revovations inside and out. My room was smelly, seedy, tatty with no natural light. The toilet window opened to a brick wall with exposed pipes in the wallspace. After 90 minutes, I checked out and was offered no help from the front desk. No change of room, no help to find an alternate location to stay and more importantly - NO REFUND. This is the kind of hotel that you would expect to chatge by the hour so you can find a local prostitute and have somewhere to go. It's not a romantic couples hotel, far from it. I wouldn't be surprised if they had hidden cameras in the rooms, that's how seedy it feels. AVOID THIS HOTEL, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY LIKE I DID.

reading the reviews about the place being disturbed worried me a bit, but we got there from the metro (Poble Sec Ⓜ️) which is a 5minutes walk, they have complimentary detox water and it was refreshing, felt like we needed that after an 1 and half our of flight and another hour to get to the hotel. I can hear people talking from the street and possibly the other room but it didn’t bother me that much. The beds are comfortable, the room is spacious the staff are amazing, helpful and friendly breakfast is satisfying. only thing is that there’s no outlet near the bedside so we had to charge phones somewhere out of reach from your rest. overall it was an excellent stay and me and my boyfriend would surely stay here when we come back.

I'm not sure what kind of hotel it is, but probably I didn't paid enough attention to the "adults only" mention. Strange place, with mirrors that adjust in the front of the bed. Yes, it looks that kind of place. Nothing against but it was not what I was expecting. Very noisy. You can literally hear people talking in the street. Breakfast was poor.

The rooms are big and specious. The bed is high and big with big mirrors that you can tilt so you can see everything. The rooms are clean. The staff in the reception was friendly and helpful. I stayed for five nights. In my first room the bathtub was leaking so it became a big pool of water on the bathroom floor. I changed rooms, still a problem with leakage, but this time from the sink which created a big pool of water on the bathroom floor. Every night I could hear the other guests party and have very, very loud sex. The walls are paper thin. So if you are looking for a hotel for a discreet meeting with your loved one, this is thar hotel. Everyone can hear what you are talking about and what you do. And why doesn't the rooms have a trash can like any other hotel in the world?

My husband and I got the grand suite and it was absolutely amazing! I love the back lighting of the bed, which can be turned off. Also, this bed is heaven, so comfortable, which having a temperpedic at home, this definitely compares. I love the jets in the hot tub, shooting out from the bottom plus the shower combo. It was lovely the hotel provides shampoo, gel soap, and even bath bombs. His and her sinks were a lovely touch along with a couch sectional. Mirrors are all around the room, the one in front of the bed is adjustable. I booked this room for 2 weeks, still staying here, but I have been enjoying my stay so much, I figured I would write a review. I enjoy enjoy this being an adult hotel. Do you hear adult activities? Yes, but I play music at night and since the mattress is so comfortable, I have been getting so great sleep. The customer service is top notch. The woman working helped us book massages and any other needs we had. On New Year's Eve, she gave us a bottle of cava and grapes, which was available for all guest. Cleaning service is exceptional. This is perhaps the best cleaning service I have ever gotten in all my travels. This is my first time traveling since the pandemic and overall, I felt more than safe and comfortable. I enjoy this place so much, I would actually stay here again if and when I travel back to Barcelona. Tons of restaurants in the area, plus bus and metro in walking distance. You can actually walk to the Gothic Quarter too, about 30 minutes or so. I also love the fountains and castle are so close too. Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay at, which made a much needed vacation that much better!

I was a bit worried at first reading the reviews, that we’d be disturbed by sounds from other rooms, but apart from someone running their jacuzzi at 4 am one night it was very nice and quiet. We had booked the superior room but I’m pretty sure we got the standard room now that I look at the pictures on their website. You could tell it was a spruced up old hotel as the bathroom had painted tile and bathtub (the superior on their website show newly tiled but we didn’t get that). Apart from that we were very happy with the hotel. The location was great, the design was nice and the staff was attentive and helpful. Not to mention free parking!!
