Fantastic location, great room, excellent service ... The staff can't do enough to help. They recommended a superb tapas bar within minutes of the hotel.
If you have a passion for modern design and would like to be as close as possible to the gaudi museum, you can't beat this hotel for value.

We have recently stayed in this property for 04 nights. The hotel gave us very good room and very cosy and quite clam.
Staff was very helpful and they always have smile .
We have really enjoyed our stay due to its perfect location on Champs Elysees avenue of Barcelona(this is what Guide told us).
Good place to do shopping just at the foot of the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms giving view at courtyard could be full of surprise like bath tub in room which is quite unique...

The guy who talked this hotel in to installing these sinks must be long ago tarred, feathered and run out of town, so I won't go on about how silly they are other than to agree with other reviewers that they are quite stylish and perfectly useless. Apparently a white Formica shelf was added later above the sinks to address complaints about a lack of space to place toothbrushes and other implements of personal hygiene. That addition made for an even worse situation as the shelf was very obviously placed by someone who has never used a sink to shave, wash their face or expectorate after brushing their teeth. After the first day, we just put towels on the floor, let the water fall where it may and enjoy our stay.

The location of this hotel is perfect for a visit to Barcelona. It is just a block or so from the very heart of the action, yet once the nights calmed, the setting was peaceful and quiet. We slept with the windows wide open every night and were never disturbed in any way. You do need to ask the front desk to have the windows unlocked so you can open and shut them as you prefer. We like to sleep in the cold, so it was perfect for us to turn off the thermostat completely and open the windows wide (during a November visit).

The staff we encountered were prompt, courteous and helpful at every turn. We checked in a little early and left a little late, both with no issue. Marta at the front desk was particularly pleasant.

We did not eat in the restaurant or use any of the public areas.

The hotel rooms and facilities seem new and are highly styled. We enjoyed the decor. The bed was extremely comfortable and the facility was clean as a whistle. For the area, the pricing was very attractive and we felt we got a bargain.

Would we stay there again? It is hard to say. There are a lot of hotels in this area and it would be fun to try another one. But I would certainly not refuse to stay here if told the Eurostar was going to be our place.

It's a bit of a shame that when we recall our visit to Barcelona in years to come, one of us will invariably comment, “Do you remember those ridiculous sinks at the hotel?”

But don't let the fixtures keep you away. It will be more fun and you will serve yourself better if you simply choose to share this mutual memory with your TripAdvisor friends.

Room Tip: Apparently some rooms have baths and some have showers. We did not verify this, but you might want...

Stayed for 4 nights in October 2013. Arrived at the hotel mid-day following a long overnight flight and was able to check in early. That was really appreciated. The staff were helpful and provided good recommendations for restaurants . Previous reviews regarding the excellent location of this hotel + the poor design of the bathrooms are accurate. We had a problem with the shower - it wasn't draining properly and flooded the room. The maintenance guy said it was repaired but the flooding happened again the next morning. No recognition of the disruption / inconvenience that caused us. Customer service was lacking here, I don't know if it's a matter of training, or if they have little authority. I probably would stay again if I got a good rate.

We stayed over night after finishing our cruise. Location excellent, staff very good but rooms dreadfully. No privacy, toilet has opaque glass door not sealed every noise is heard in room. Trying to shave was so difficult with shell over wash hand basin. Truly a pity given the excellent location. Would not recommend.

The location of this hotel is superb, it is walking distance to everything. You can walk to Plaza Catalunya, Casa Milla, Casa Battlo, La Rambla, boqueria etc. and it is right infront og the hop on hop off bus stop. The hotel has a modern theme to their decor and interior set-up with different configurations, some have a tub while others have a shower. My only suggestion would be to change their sinks, they are really tiny, perhaps aesthetically pleasing but not so functional.

Service-wise, it was good but needed some consistency, some rooms had turn-down service, others did not, it wasn't very easy to get extra pillows, and at some point, 2 pieces of our laundered items were misplaced. They however located them and forwarded them to our next destination, and they were very helpful.

Overall it's convenient, situated inside a nice old building, very close to shops and other restaurants and the service was good.

Very bad service. We had an electricity problem for two days in our room.The hotel was at full capacity so no other room was available for us and we didn't get compensation. The rooms are designed awful- the toilets doesnt have a door, so no privacy if you are two people in the same room. Stay away!!!
