Neighbourhood
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Location was very good - close to subway and right at the Triomphe. Staff was very courteous, helpful and friendly. It's a clean, comfy facility. Good value for money (though our stay was off-season). They allowed us to leave our bags at their facility before check in time.

Hi, We did not have slippers provided in the room, but there are carpets on the floor so it was not an issue for me. There is a small swimming pool on the roof terrace however no sauna or jacuzzi. Hope you enjoy your stay.

Does this hotel have air conditioning?
It was in our room, and that was a standard one, so I can only assume all rooms have it.

You can buy breakfast each day or go out it’s up to you. There was a special price offer whilst we were there, but cannot recall how much .....sorry. Afternoon tea and coffee was included in the price and it was nice to meet other guests Hope this helps.

We didn’t have one. I’m sure they’d provide the service if you ask though.
