“Still giving great service”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

This is now the 5th time I've stayed here, the service and standard of the hotel is still excellent. Staff are very friendly, rooms are always clean and the prices are very reasonable given the location.

If you do stay here, the easiest way to get from the airport is via the train, which runs every 20 minutes from Terminal 2 to Sants station. Get a T10 ticket, (giving 10 journeys on the train & underground) will cost you approx. 9 euro's. A taxi each way will cost approx. 25 euro's.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front of the building to ensure views down to Plaza Espanya and also across to...

We arrived early and thankfully were allowed to check-in. We were provided with a room not to our liking and were told we could switch after additional rooms had been vacated. After sightseeing we came back and were given another room, without a problem. I only ate once at the hotel and the food and staff were great. Our room was clean and the cleaning staff were very accommodating. We had a room with a wonderful view. I also had a chance to enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace/restaurant. The only caveat is the noise from the rooftop.

Room Tip: Don't select a room on the 9th floor.

A delayed train arrival meant my wife and her friend were checking in to a full hotel I had booked for them at about 10.30pm on a Saturday night, so what happened next will probably come as no surprise. They were allocated a twin room on the top floor, right next to the rooftop pool and bar, which on reflection was probably a staff room. After they realised they were not going to sleep, because of the noise from the bar and the electrical equipment outside their window, they managed to get two small single rooms on a lower floor instead, but this did spoil their stay since it was now well after midnight and they had been travelling all day from London. On the plus side the staff were very helpful about changing the room and the hotel was close to the Sants station and very clean. The view from the rooftop bar probably justified the expensive gin and tonics! On another occasion they would probably have enjoyed a better experience.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms on the same top floor as the pool and the bar.

I stayed here for my boyfriends birthday for the first time from the 20th - 22nd October and I was very impressed. I am very hard to please but this hotel was lovely. The hotel staff were great throughout my time here and I would definitely go back. They even brang up a birthday cake for my boyfriend which I thought was lovely. The only bad point I can think of is the roof top pool wasn't what I thought it was but then again I did go at the end if October!

Room Tip: Rooms are very noisy at night

My wife and I along with another couple enjoyed an overnight at this wonderful hotel before our cruise out of the port of Barcelona. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean but we especially liked the great little rooftop terrace bar and restaurant.
Excellent food, great service and a beautiful view of Montjuic and the hills around picturesque Barcelona.

The location is the best in Barcelona. it is right in front of Sants station , you can go everywhere in Barcelona from here very conveniently. and the service of staff was awesome. They speak English fluently. they knew what travelers want. Breakfast was the best in Europe. you can eat fresh fruit and vegetables here. I stayed 6 different hotels in 3 countries(Italy,Spain,France) this travel. and Expo was the best. I was really satisfied. Thank you Expo!

Thi shotel is absolutely fine. The locationis god, just around the corner from Sants station, the rooms are clean, the facilities are of a good standard, the staff are really friendly and helpful. The food is good and there is a roof terrace bar / restaurant with good views. However, the noise is terrible. The noise comes from both inside and outside the hotel. I stayed for 5 nights and barely slept.
