“Terrific hotel”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Very clean, spacious room, well decorated, very comfortable bed. Large convenient bathroom (better than the bathrooms of most 5 star hotels that I have been in!), rich and useful bath kit. It's located away from the city centre, but it's not a bad location at all - very close to a metro station, not away from Camp Non and the university district. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Home away from home. Great stay.

Exquisite design in the spacious comfortable bedrooms with sofas and sitting area. Perfect for visitors to the Nou Camp and for patients or visitors to the high quality Dexeus private clinic which is right opposite. I was delighted with my night's stay prior to an early morning appointment at the clinic, and was really relaxed in the morning.

Myself and my husband have just got back from brilliant weekend at this hotel. Brilliant location for Nou Camp, maybe 4 mins walk, only 20 mins from airport by taxi. The staff here were very helpful. Lots of people said not much to do but if you walk upto the metro station, poss 10 mins Max and get on L3 line, it is only 15 mins and 9 stops to the centre of Barcelona, we were advised to get T10 ticket which was perfect for us both to use and only cost about €10. The hotel was very modern and clean, would def recommend. Would also venture out around the area if you want authentic restaurants, there are a few within 2 mins walk.

Reviewed 22 October 2013

My girlfriend and I found no problems with the hotel itself when we stayed. We slept well, didn't hear any noise from any adjacent rooms and the room was very clean. The view was a stone face of the next building but who really cares about that anyway. The staff were friendly and helpful and most spoke good English. They also looked after our cases both when we arrived before check in time and after we had to check out.
The only problem was the location. We stayed for 2 nights, 3 days and although we knew we were going to a Barcelona game on the first night and the hotel is ideally located for this (10 minute walk), it is not really near anything else that we wanted to see or do such as the beach, La Ramblas, the gothic district or the Olympic park. The metros are very efficient but because of the location, we had to do far more walking than we'd have liked. It is also not that close to the airport.

The hotel is located just 500 meters from Camp Nou and since ours was more of a football trip, the hotel was a convenient option for us. The metro station is close so that is a plus. There are not many good eating options around the hotel.
As for the interiors, the hotel is pretty basic and there is nothing unique or fancy about it. The staff is courteous and prompt. The room is spacious although there no open view as the adjacent buildings are constructed very close to each other.
I would recommend this only if you have visits planned to the stadium otherwise there are a lot of better hotels or neighborhoods where you can stay at the same price.

Reviewed 11 September 2013

Would I stay here again? No. It's fine for proximity to the stadium or if you have business near by but for tourists or congress attendees it is just not easy to access. The lack of clock, lighting and kettle make it unsuitable for business & the extremely unhelpful guy in the lobby makes it unappealing for me to return. Given the cost you can do better if you are both a tourist or in the area for business.

This hotel, while not pretty from the exterior, is modern & nicely appointed in the interior. The rooms are lovely with comfortable beds and a fantastic shower.The gym is good with a couple of treadmills & elliptical trainers. The breakfast is simple, continental with some hot food available.

Where this hotel suffers though is it it's appropriateness for business given its location. We stayed here as we were attending a congress at Fira near Placa Europa. It is not in a great location if you want to be near the city centre or the congress centre but handy if you want to be near Camp Nou. The metro is about 7 min walk away, but then another 15 mins on the metro to the centre.

The hotel could benefit from better lighting as it is very dark which makes it difficult to work, as well as clocks & kettle in the room. I found it really surprising that they have invested heavily in the hotel & yet there is no digital alarm clock or coffee making facilities. Small concern to most but important to me. The wifi was terrible, it kept locking me out & so I had to sign back in continuously.
Staff were friendly on the whole aside from one man who works at the front desk who could not be less interested in helping you.

A for star hotel in which you cannot open the window because there is a crappy old building 1 meter. Rooms and interiors are ok but walls are so thin that I had to ask my neighbors to keep their voice low as it felt they were speaking to me.... not worth the 200euro per night price. Front desk not really helpful - a polite person wouldn't get any info ... You need to insist for them to do something. Worthless location: it's close to a mall and the football stadium but that's about it!
Not worth any consideration unless there is a really good reason!

Room Tip: If you need to be here, ask to be facing the street and not the back
