Stayed at this hotel twice now.

Rooms are large, clean and very comfortable.

Breakfasts are amazing.

Pool area is nice with an amazing view of the city.

Location is perfect, within walking distances to shops and restaurants which are on its door step.

I would not hesitate to stay here for a third time.

Wi-fi coverage and offering could be better.

Can't ask for much more on a business trip.
Room is simple with basic decor and amenities but big enough even for a couple.
Breakfast is ok
I didn't use any other facilities.
Location is very good at a 10 minutes walk from Las Ramblas
Staff is friendly

We left one NH hotel in Amsterdam where they were great to us and went to another NH hotel where they didn't give a damn. We checked in around 9:30 at night and got a tiny room with a clothes closet about 2 feet wide for both of us all for about $300/night. The website is deceptive as to the kind of room. It looks like 1 thing in the picture but when get it in it looks similar but you say "is this all". We had 3 rooms in 4 days and it was the worst hotel of our vacation. The location was the only good thing about the hotel. Stay at the Mandarin around the corner.

We stayed one night awaiting departure of our cruise from Barcelona Port. The location is great to walk around, get dinner, coffee, etc and maybe even do some sightseeing. However the rooms are very small, the facility as well as the room are extremely warm and stuffy. We could not sleep well despite being jet lagged because we were sweating (and I am always cold) the shower didn't have a full door it was just very "cheap" looking but not cheap at all.

Not such a grand hotel as described in their advertising. Lobby is small, room for two clerks at the reception desk. There is no head board for the beds. The beds are on rollers, so if one sits up to read or watch TV, the bed starts to be pushed away from the wall. The TV is a small flat screen that should be located in the kitchen. The morning we went to the breakfast room, there was a long line for the self serve coffee machine because one of the two expresso machines was broken. This should be a two star hotel instead of a four star.

Room Tip: Try the Ohla Hotel next time.

Firstly the good bits...

The hotel is in a great location and the room standard are very good. We asked for and were given a room on the top floor with great views, the receptionist was really helpful. The hotel appears to have been modernized and the rooms are top 4* possibly 5* at a push, only criticism, it's one of those hotels who like rock hard beds.

There is a pool on the roof but with only 10 sunbeds,in the middle of summer I can see it being a problem.

Now the downside...

The hotel lets itself down on the staffing front. Apart from the guy who checked us out I found everyone appeared so miserable.By way of example the team at breakfast wouldn't make eye contact appeared unable to smile and only if forced. would speak.

I would recommend the hotel but be prepared for the staff attitude

Location is good but pokey , dark rooms, have to climb over toilet to get into shower, no fan in bathroom. In addition poor, very slow service at check in and at breakfast. Very disappointing and don't plan to go back.
