Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

Great hotel. I chose it because of its location and I wasn't let down. Ideal location for walking around Barcelona and good transport links if you want to go further afield.

Hotel itself had friendly staff, good continental breakfast selection. My room (Superior 203) was a good size with a decent bathroom and lovely doors opening out onto the street for people watching and a bit of fresh air. When the doors were shut I didn't notice any road noise.

Outside terrace is a lovely place to relax after a busy day sightseeing/shopping though was under used whilst I was there so not a good place to meet people if you are a solo traveller.

Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Stayed: July 2014

We spent three nights here in June and it was very nice for a downtown hotel that is affordable and quiet. The quiet comes from having a room (211) facing the rear of the hotel looking over the courtyard. This is one of only three rooms with a large balcony capable of holding 4-6 people for drinks etc. It is not the largest room, but it has very high ceilings, a great AC, a very comfortable king size bed. We did not eat breakfast at the hotel, preferring to go out to cafes that are less than 5 minutes away. The metro stop is 100 feet from the front door giving you infinite travel facility in the city. However, taxis are inexpensive for a major city, so we went to places via the metro and taxis on the way back. We did not encounter a rude receptionist at the hotel and checkin and check out was very easy. Our friends stayed in 102, a larger room facing the Granvia and said that the noise level was very low given the fact that the avenue is a major Barcelona street.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the rear courtyard are quiet and ask for 211 for a great spacious balcony.

Great hotel, very clean and elegantly decorated. The outside terrace was perfect for chilling out in in the evening after a long day sightseeing, it was a real treat. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was limited but what they offered was sufficient. I would highly reccommend the hotel and would definitly stay again.

This hotel is in a prime central location for getting to all the sights. It is in a quiet street. The hotel lives up to the standard it claims. Although it may look grand, all the staff are friendly and welcoming. The terrace is superb, particularly on a balmy evening, where you can sip drinks or just rest after a hectic day.

Stayed four nights in this lovely hotel in Barcelona. The decor and facade was beautiful with a colonial spice to it, its similar to their sister hotel on La Ramblas.
Welcome was very professional and the staff where very friendly and helpful. Extra cot was provided for our little baby at an extra 20 euros per night. The room was spacious and very comfortable.Bathroom was very clean and lots of towel. Breakfast was very good with variety and takeaway was allowed.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Walking distance from El cort Ingles a large shopping mall, La Ramblas, Placa Catalunya and most major attractions. You could go shopping or sight seeing and pop back to the hotel for a little rest or break.
I will recommend and most certainly return.

The hotel is very beautiful but our stay was spoiled by the rudest and most unprofessional receptionist I have ever encountered. The hotel had made a mistake with our booking and the receptionist on duty was so rude and unhelpful to us. We had a booking confirmation clearly stating that we had booked 4 bedrooms and breakfast for 3 out of the 4 bedrooms. But when we arrived, the rude receptionist told us that we didn't have breakfast booked for any of the rooms. He was incredibly rude, I could not believe how he was treating us. Eventually he stormed off and one of his colleagues came over and realised that the hotel had made a mistake with our booking and that we were in the right and that they had made a mistake. Its a beautiful hotel but the receptionist was so rude and unprofessional. His behaviour towards us was appalling. He never tried to hear us out or sort out the issue, he literally started shouting at us from the very beginning. Absolutely shocking. Can't believe this hotel employs such rude staff. We will never return to this hotel. The breakfast was also very poor.
