“Ideal for a Barcelona City break”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Stayed here for 6 nights. The location is very good, short walk to Placa Catalunya, so easy access to the tourist buses, La Ramblas, central shopping centre, and countless bars, and restaurants. Most of the restaurants do not open until at least 8 o/c in the evening, but the tapas bars are open all day. The breakfast in the hotel is excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. Enjoyed our stay here, rather strange that the hotel charges 2.20 euros per night, for the use of the safe in your room, WHY? just add it to the room rate no one would even question the charge. Would recommend this hotel and would return if visiting Barcelona again.

Great modern hotel, close to restaurants and many attractions. The room was very clean and comfortable, although compact, however for three nights was adequate. The only slight negative being the glass sliding door on the bathroom which didn't give quite enough privacy, although this wasn't too much of a problem for a couple.The breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice to suit all tastes, with a good selection of cereals and fresh fruits, good cold meats and cheeses, limited but good hot selection, and plenty of rolls and pastries. The reception staff were always very helpful and recommended two good restaurants, one of which the Casa Alfonso was a very good traditional tapas restaurant, and was so good that we went back to the following night. Two euros a day for the safe isn't too bad, and certainly worth it to keep your passport and valuables safe.The metro stations of Tetuan and Girona were only 5 mins walk from the hotel, which made getting round the rest of Barcelona easy. We bought the 10 use tickets which seemed the best value, and just passed it back to the other when passing through the barrier (it's meant for this). The hotels location, service, comfort and cleanlieness make this hotel an excellent choice for a short break, and would use again if we returned to Barcelona.

The hotel is in an excellent location within walking distance of the metro and a pleasant stroll to the sights and attractions.
We arrived well before our check in time but the reception staff were very pleasant and to our surprise the room was ready. The room was well appointed with an excellent bathroom. It was a touch on the small side but was more than adequate for a two night stay.
Breakfast was included, which was a buffet breakfast. There was a good selection both hot and cold, however the hot food was generally only lukewarm and wasn't particularly appealing to me. The cold food was excellent.
A safe can be found in your room at a cost of €2 a day which I did not find too unreasonable.
Overall I found the stay excellent value for money and I would certainly use again if staying in Barcelona.

Stayed here for 2 nights, very pleased with the hotel. The hotel is very modern and clean. Welcome glass of cava on arrival is a nice touch.

I booked a superior room based on other reviews and we were very pleased with it. 4th floor overlooking Gran Via, no traffic noise at all. Very comfortable room. We checked in around 2pm, dropped our bags in the room and ventured into the city. Upon return to the room a complementary bottle of cava was well received.

The location is great, 10 mins to the Ramblas, 35 mins walk to the beach, €30 taxi from airport.

Breakfast was plentiful, and more cava available if you want it.

Overall great hotel, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, would definitely stay again if in Barcelona. Thanks.

Room Tip: Do book a superior room, worth the extra

Stayed for 3 nights at beginning of June. Hotel was chosen largely for it's location, but the hotel and staff exceeded expectations. Not a hotel if you want Barcelona character, Modern but not modernista. Greeted with a glass of Cava at check in. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, very good breakfast . The hotel is on a very busy road, but although our room was at the front it was very quiet, very effective double glazing. The room was very comfortable, excellent bed and very clean. Nice pool for the energetic. The location was just about perfect for the major sights of the city. 20 minute walk to Sagrada Familiar, 10 minutes to Placa Cataluna, 15 to the Cathedral. Metro station about 3 minutes, 10 to Casa Batllo. I would not hesitate to use this hotel again, and will consider other Gruphotels in other cities.

Room Tip: Just go for a higher floor

Stayed here for four nights to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Booked a superior room with Booking.com, which was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a view of the swimming pool from the 5th floor. Did a separate booking directly with the hotel for my daughters, who came as a surprise, and they were allocated a room right next door to our's, which was very thoughtful of the hotel. Made it much more convenient for the girls to pop into our room for a drink of the complimentary Cava!
Breakfast was plentiful each morning, with something to suit all tastes., and Cava was a nice way to start the day, when on holiday. We did have an issue with a meal we had at the restaurant one night, but it was discreetly sorted out with staff.
Many thanks to Marta who responded promptly to my many questions by e-mail, and to all the staff, who were always friendly and efficient. We look forward to returning soon.

We Stayed 3 nights tues- fri. Arrived at hotel 11.30am case was stored and we went off for a few hrs & some lunch.
Returned at 2pm, we were upgraded to a superior room, had cava, and was extremely pleased with room, overlooking Gran Via on 2nd floor. Lovely decent size room, modern, clean, good size tv & it had a good few English news channels.
The bathroom was very smart, with a frosted glass wall between the bathroom & bedroom. Big shower, plenty of towels, changed daily.
Ample toiletries/ hair dryer etc. spotlessly clean.
The breakfast buffet was very good, a wide choice , constantly being refilled. Plenty of staff on duty, to see to tea/ coffee. Cava is available at breakfast too!
We had our first evening meal in the hotel, eating outside on the terrace. For €22 each we had a 3 course meal with wine or water. It was amazingly delicious.
The pool on the sun deck is rather small, which was slightly disappointing but the sun beds were very comfy., as there are only about 11 to use they get used up pretty quick. We spent a couple of hrs tues & thurs afternoon recharging our batteries , but the sun goes down behind the top of the hotel about 4.30, we moved the bed s into the corner by the steps for an extra 15 mins of sun.
The rooms at deck level have a patio door on to a private terrace, but after 3pm they are in the shade too, which seems a shame.
You pay€2 per towel for pool use.This is a one off fee for the duration of your stay.
You can ask for a kettle in room for free, with cups, but pay a daily fee if you want tea/coffee/ milk etc .
The staff were all extremely polite helpful & friendly.
The hotel stands on Gran Via a beautiful tree lined avenue, busy, but not too noisy , lots of bars nearby and a nearby metro stop.
Overal would recommend this hotel, and when I return again to Barcelona I would defiantly stay here, thank you .
