Trendy Hotel in great location. Rooms could do with a spray of mosquito repellent during cleaning as was eaten alive on first two nights which resulted in a couple of very uncomfortable nights sleep. Room was also not cleaned on one day. Staff turned up at 6pm when we were already back and preparing for the evening. Street directly behind the hotel a bit dodgy but easy enough to avoid. Overall though, great looking hotel and great base for exploring the city.

Unusual hotel but great facilities and great location. Spotlessly clean and great views of the city from the panoramic bar on floor eleven. Didn't take breakfast but it looked very good. Hotel is about five mins walk from La Rambla but in a nice, quiet square away from the noise of the Main Street but very accessible

What a stylish and quirky hotel this is! Such clever and fun rooms, fantastic interiors throughout the hotel and the view from the roof, amazing! The best compliment I can pay it is to say we would very happily stay at this hotel if we visited Barcelona again.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room so you can get a view.

Stayed there for a long weekend with friends.
Location is OK - if you don't mind walking through the migration ally late at night to get there from the centre of the Ramblas. We enjoyed it, though we were warned...!

then - staff is very helpful and friendly. rooms are clean and just enough space for two people.

the shower and washing facilities are designed in a modern way and not in a separated from the rest of the room.

lot of little things - it seemed to us - were not really thought trough when the rooms were designed. It seems to me, that style proceeded practicalities.

the rooms are quiet (except for a few intoxicated girls at 1am). ther eis no noise from the street nor from neighbouring rooms or houses.

Breakfast for €18 was definitely to poor - or to expensive!

Surly a good place to stay - a little to modern for my taste and a little pricy for what it has to offer!

Fantastic weekend break in a wonderful city. The barcelo raval very well placed for strolling all the amazing side streets. The hotel is funky, spotlessly clean, friendly attentive staff and has a great view from the rooftop.
Would recommend a stay there. Look forward to returning. Used tesco vouchers for 2 nights out of 3 . Brilliant and do easy to book.

We stayed here for 4 nights, our 1st trip to Barcelona. Loved the room, very modern and minimalist. Location was great, only a 5 min stroll to las Ramblas, and the nearest metro station, but amazingly quiet at night. Plenty of really good places to eat nearby, from breakfast to late night eateries.
The surrounding area was fine, we had no problems whatsoever and felt safe throughout. But good heavens, this is Barcelona, not Lourdes, some reviewers need to get real!
