This was a spare of the moment weekend away with a friend. The hotel did not disappoint. The beds are the comfiest beds I have ever slept on and I've slept on a few (not like that, cheeky). The massive 50" was stupidly large but watching a movie was amazing, whilst nursing a little hangover.

Your 3 mins walk away from the magical fountains which is a most see when you visit Barcelona, and a 5 min walk from the arena viewing platform which gives you a 360 degree view of the city.

La Rambla, the harbour and the beach are a leisurely stroll down the road.

Worth every penny, would stay again.

It's hard to tell if it's a recruitment flaw or a management problem but when they were present, the majority of the staff displayed a dissatisfaction or disinterest that made interaction a chore. There were exceptions but from very first contact with the one & only staff member on duty at reception it was abundantly clear that we were a burden not welcome guests. After waiting 10 minutes for the sole staff member to get off the phone, we were informed that we could have checked in at the Club Lounge. A little hard to do when you've no idea where it is & there are no signs but handy to know for next time.

Room was nice other than the things that didn't work like TV & aircon. Club Lounge is lovely. Nice furnishings & lovely ambience, Breakfast in the Club Lounge was excellent. Other snacks, not so much. Range of drinks was good on the first day but weren't replenished once finished so got worse over the 3 days.

Dinner in the main restaurant was inappropriately expensive but reasonable quality. Staff we're reasonably attentive but predominantly mono-lingual. Not a fair criticism as I am too. It was just unfortunate for me that my main language isn't coincident with that of the restaurant staff.

Despite the annoyances above, my main gripe is an easy one to fix. Stop serving UHT milk! It destroys the flavour of otherwise reasonable coffee & leaves an after taste that couldn't be removed even with liberal application of the ever-dwindling supply of Club Lounge liquor.

Fabulous clean and welcoming room with good coffe machin. The staff are extremely friendly and always ready to help. The hotel is in an amazing location, with the Magic Fountain just down the road and easy access to the bus and train stops, which are right outside the building. We also enjoyed the daily breakfast, as it was fresh with lots of variety. It is located near by the fira Center of Barcelona, Arenas Shopping Centre in Barcelona’s Plaza España. We loved this hotel:)

This hotel is beautiful and in a great location. The metro is a short 5-7 minute walk and is immediately accessible to the Red and Green line, both of which stop at La Rambla. Additionally, if you arrive by bus (from Girona airport or somewhere else), there is a metro right outside the bus station that connects the red line right to the hotel. The room was large and clean. We would definitely recommend this hotel!!!

Although this is certainly not a flashy hotel, nor does it offer grand views, it more than makes up for this in comfort and service. The location is on a quiet street, but a fairly quick walk to Plaza de Espana and the metro. The rooms are huge for a hotel in a major European city, and, with double doors to the hallway, extremely quiet. The internet worked well. My cousin and I stayed for three nights, and the front desk always seemed to be well-staffed, with helpful personnel. It was hands-down the best hotel in our 2-week trip from Paris, and not the most expensive. I only wish the restaurant were a bit more affordable, but there are plenty of options within easy walking distance. If you're looking for a quiet room with understated luxury, comfort, and great service, this is the place!

Room Tip: No views, and all of the rooms are very well insulated, so I don't think you can go wrong.
