Enjoyed a 3 night stay at this super cool establishment. Very modern, rooms are compact but well designed and very comfortable. Rooftop is super with amazing views. Pool just for cooling off, not for swimming. Staff very helpful, breakfast good variety, location perfect. A great spot to stay and enjoy this wonderful city.

On our next trip to Barcelona we will deffinitely be staying here again. What a great area El Ravel is! With lovely inexpensive bars and eateries scattered around. It's close enough to la ramblas but far enough away so you can relax away from the hustle and bustle. The hotel itself is lovely and modern, a lovely fresh smell as soon as you walk through the reception doors, the rooms a lovely size and spacious with the bed being one of the most comfortable I have ever stayed in. The views from our room and the rooftop pool/bar are spectacular day and night.

We received wonderful service from the reception desk. They provided maps and directions for different attractions. The room was very comfortable, with very good quality linens. The buffet breakfast was very good. It was centrally located so that you could walk to many of the city sites.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights during our honeymoon. It is in a good location, however a little bit sketchy at night. Very close to La Rambla and the famous food market (which is worth a visit!). The pool and bar on the roof is great, although the pool closes at 6 which seems a bit early. They say its because at that point the rooftop becomes open to the public.
The staff was mixed in terms of helpfulness. One woman was extremely helpful and we booked Flamenco tickets through the hotel which turned out to be a great evening. Make sure if you want to book you do so a day or 2 before as they book up quick!
The room itself was fairly nice (although be aware that the washroom is integrated in the room so hope you aren't shy). The lighting was cool as well as the electronic blinds
There were a few downsides. One day the cleaning staff completely forgot to clean our room. we had to call downstairs to get new towels. The sink was clogged and wouldn't drain so we needed to go down to get that sorted which they did right away when we were out exploring the city.

Was still a nice stay and the location is fairly good! Would still recommend this hotel

I got to the hotel before proper checkin time from a long overseas flight. Staff found me a room that was ready. Went there. Took shower. Got in bed. It was a wonderful stay. Just a few steps to La Rambla. Quiet. This is the place to stay. Close to the port to catch a cruise as well. You can walk or a cheap cab ride. Thank you for a great stay.

Room Tip: I was on the 2nd floor or so and it was quiet.

I loved the interior of this hotel! Super modern and colorful. There is a 360 degree view on the roof where you can look out at all of Barcelona! The room had air conditioning and a really great shower. There was plenty of room to move around unlike the elevator which was really small. The staff here was also super helpful. We had problems with a tour booking we had made through another company and the staff called them for us and fixed our problem while we went out to explore the city. For location, the hotel is a bit of a walk to the Hop on Hop off bus stop but it is doable. The hotel is right by las ramblas which was always very lively! Definitely recommend you stay here!
