“Come alone.”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Nice space theme and fresh interior, but I would not recommend sharing the rooms here with someone else, unless you are completely insensitive to sharing your toilet privacy. The toilets are like closets here - thin wooden door, no lock, no sound or air isolation, no water sink. So unless you feel comfortable taking a dump in a closet and sharing this audial experience with your wife, who is getting comfy in the bed two steps away, I would advise to stay here only when alone.

The beds are great, by the way.

Choose this hotel as it was right above the train station and did not want to try and find a hotel late at night. The rooms were clean and spacious, had coffee and tea making facility in the room although there was no milk! hotel was easy to find and being above the station plenty of eating options for breakfast. Hotel had a nice feel. Had the best mojito just what was needed after a long trip. Our only complaint was that we got stuck behind a coach party who were checking in when we were trying to check out. Would have liked an express checkout service. Will defiantly be returning to this hotel in October,

Great location as on top of Sants main rail station with good metro and rail connections enabling ease of getting about. Personally found it to be an excellent hotel with a very high standard of accomodation constructed in the theme of Space 2001:A Space Odyssey, unusual and refreshingly different. Currently my preferred choice of hotel when staying in Barcelona for all the above reasons and all at a reasonable rate.

Fabulous hotel, so comfortable and very quiet with the great convenience of being right at the train station. Very newly renovated with the most comfortable beds. So you're not right in the heart of the gothic sector, but it's just a train ride away, and the train is on your door step. Check out the great Ethiopian restaurant just down the road otherwise you will have to go back down town for good food. wifi a bit slow in the room, but great down at reception where you have free use of their Mac computers. Space them of the hotel is quite quirky! This was our son's favourite hotel during our recent european trip!

Room Tip: we had interconnecting rooms with a view which was great!

When you see it on the web page, the "space station" décor theme looks a little odd. However, in person, it's kind of fun, and different from a standard-issue business hotel that could be anywhere in the world. So, thumbs up to the space theme.
Hotel is located directly over the Barcelóna Sants train station. This is a little bit of bad news (immediate area is not very picturesque), with a bunch of good news (it is a snap to get to any place in the greater Barcelona area; there is basically a shopping center right there where you can buy any travel needs; Barcelona tourist info office at the station is very helpful with maps, tickets, and so forth).
This was a business trip for me, pleasure trip for my spouse. We had a junior suite, which worked well for two people and five nights. You can close off the bedroom area from the sitting area. There is a half-bath in the sitting area, which is a plus when one spouse is sleeping in and the other is getting up to go to a meeting.

Minimalistic space themed hotel that is very clean, modern, functional, spacious and convenient. Shower was fabulous! Comfortable bed. Free and speedy WiFi too. Good spread of buffet breakfast - love the organic tea option.

It's away from city centre but the hotel is just next to Sants Station which is well linked. Quite easy to hop on to popular touristic areas such as La Ramblas, etc.

Stayed just before Easter weekend.

Pros:

- location just above the Sants station, direct train to airport, perfect for exploring the city or catching the train/renting a car to your next Spanish destination. Tourist bus stop across the hotel but we stayed away from it, too expensive, difficult to get on at busy times and didnt want to be tied to its route.
- nice views from the upper floors, no traffic noise
- very good breakfast
- freshly-decorated throughout though open plan bathroom took some getting used to

Cons:
- service a bit shambolic, wifi wasnt working and didnt get fixed despite a couple of calls to reception (for which they tried to charge me but didnt eventually).
- air con would shut down in the middle of the night, perhaps it is on timer but it was so stuffy that had to wake up to turn it on. Windows didnt open needless to say. This wasnt fixed despite calls to reception.
- sound insulation quite poor, could hear every toilet flush, luckily neighbours didnt get up to much else on our floor.
