My husband and son stayed at this hotel for a weekend break to Barcelona whilst taking in a Barca football match.We booked it through Travel Zoo at a very competitive rate.
The position of the hotel was close to the harbour/marina where there are lots of good bars and eating places.The beach is a 20 minute walk away,close to Metro stations and Las Ramblas.
The hotel is quite new and spotless.The decor is contemporary as you would expect.The room they stayed in was spacious with a flat screen TV and en suite shower room,the beds were very comfy! The hotel spa was excellent and of a high standard.
The staff were very helpful and friendly to them as first time visitors to the city.If you are looking for a base to include a visit to the Nou Camp it is just 5 stops along the green line and the nearest Metro staton to the hotel is only 2 streets away.
The breakfast included was definitely a continental style which was quite adequate but may not have been everyones cup of tea!
To conclude this hotel is to be recommended.

Took some finding but this was a lovely hotel. The room was spacious, clean and modern. The bed was comfy but two singles pushed together rather than the double I'd booked but it didn't really matter. We didn't book breakfast but there is a wonderful bakery/cafe right next door which produced the most fabulous breads and cakes, beautiful coffee and the service was friendly and fast - we were given bits of cake with our drinks which was a bonus. Las Ramblas is within easy walking distance as are the metro stations, the nearest being Paralel so we got around the city quite easily and cheaply - the metro is only a couple of euros and takes you all over the city, so we go to see most of the places we wanted to. I wasn't sure what t expect of the hotel after reading previous reviews but I was pleasantly surprised and would definately go again, it made my visit to Barcelona !!.

Room Tip: There are no tea or coffee making facilities so take along a travel kettle.

The hotel is in a great location in what feels like the back streets of Barcelona. It was a very short distance to the marina, the ramblas and up to Mont Juc near the cable cars. We stayed for two nights on a deal which included access to the spa and free wifi (which compared to other reviews on here was absolutely fine, and never didn´t work). The rooms were really nice and the hotel was fine for what we needed it for. As part of the stay we were given a free drink and tapas (though as one person pointed out it wasn´t really tapas but it was free so why get your knickers in a twist). On the first night there was a barman and he seemed fine and was there for a few drinks. The second night (same guy) didn´t seem so good and kept hiding out the back. The first time we waited around 5 minutes with no sign so I went to reception to be told there was someone there, fine but they weren´t actually there so she proceeded to just call the bar and surprise surprise no one answered, well that was because no one was there! Anyway another 5 minutes and he came out but after serving everyone disappeared again to which we just decided to head out to our favourite bar Diner Apolo! Seriously go there much nicer vibe than anything I saw on the ramblas.

The spa is very small but has a nice enough swimming pool/large jacuzzi with a steam room and sauna. However any more than 6 people you´d probably be getting a bit too friendly especially in the changing room! The breakfast was pretty poor but to be honest the free jagermeisters at Diner Apollo didn´t make me feel like eating much anyway lol.

Overall fine for our stay and a great location

We selected hotel very thoroughly. Expectations from the hotel were very high. We did not expect to receive hotel where doors of the toilets were broken, as well as lamps. We also did not know that they were charging for the swimming pool separately. Internet was not working during one week (we did not stay longer). Plus the location of the hotel was not the best as it is next to the playground for teenagers and it is quite remote place especially in the evenings. I wonder how it became one of the best hotels in the previous year... Good luck

Room Tip: Do not search a hotel next to La Rambla as it is crowded, loud and unsafe.
