“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

We liked the decoration, the cleanliness, but above all the location was amazing,
We would come again. Stayed 8 nights. Barcelona is wonderful!
We would like some more attention and hospitality from the staff.

It's in a great location in Barcelona. Besides you can easily access to the hotel from airport, it is very easy to reach any attraction point from the hotel. There is a friendly staff. Rooms are well decorated and very clean.

My bf and I travelled to Barcelona in August 2013. We didn’t want to spend a fortune on a hotel, as we would’ve rather spent our money on activities/dining/shopping etc, although we didn’t want to stay in a dump either!

After doing tons of research, we chose this hotel and we were not at all disappointed and actually pleasantly surprised. Most importantly the location is amazing, as you are only a block away from Las Ramblas and can pretty much walk everywhere. We also were only a short walk to the train which takes you to the beach.

In addition to the excellent location, the room was very clean, staff friendly and so helpful in giving tips on where to go/what to do, there was a nice pool (super small but nice if you want to lay out or take a quick dip) and breakfast (we thought slightly overpriced and ended up going to Starbucks for breakfast most days, but still is nice to have this convenience)

The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars:
-The door for the bathroom was more like a shower stall door, giving you really no privacy (if you want to keep some romance alive with your partner, 1 of you should wait in the hallway)

Two side notes:
--the room was small, although we expected this so it’s not really a major Con
--we requested a room off the street, as my partner is a very light sleeper and we were worried about the noise level on such a busy street (which was not a problem-we heard very little noise)

Centrally located, clean and accommodating hotel. My family and I only stayed for one night in Barcelona but we were most impressed with this hotel. It is in the heart of the city, and very easy to find. Close by are many shops and great tapas places to eat. The rooms are modern, extremely clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and spoke good English. I hope to stay at this hotel again if I return to Barcelona.

we have booked a room with a balcony for 2 nights in this very well located hotel (100€ per night). The street of the hotel is quite busy and noisy but we couldn't hear anything from the room, so we were confident that we will spend two lovely nights and lazy mornings. The room was quite small, a bit dark with 2-joined single bed... First concern, the heating of the room didn't work, even if we had the surprise to see a small hand heater probably let by the cleaning staff on the day after our arrival. Some lights in the room were not working as well. The biggest disappointment came from inside the hotel. On top of hearing doors smashing from other rooms in the corridor, you can hear cleaning trolleys roll in the corridor, cleaning staff talking, and hoover... not the dreamed and expected wake up in a 3-star hotel.
when we left, I checked the room door and realised that there was no seal to enable the room being sound proofed and heat isolated from the corridor...
So not a very good experience, and am probably sure that it is possible to find a better hotel in this range of rates.
Nevertheless, positive feedbacks are : nice entrance hall, kind staff and good location

I wanted to stay in one of the luxury hotels in Barcelona but decided to save some EUR and stay between the Gothic Quarter and Playa Catalunya at this hotel. Small entrance directly on Portal del Angel which is a walking street (but official taxis can drive to entrance) and impressive restored interior of public areas. The rooms and beds are small but I splurged for the terrace which was a good size. It was cold in Barcelona but the heating unit was fast if needed. The receptionist helped me make dinner reservations at a place he had not heard of (my friends recommended it - see my review of El Salon) and spent the time to find it, call them, give me detailed directions and print me a map. Not usual in a 3 star! Also I managed to forget a very important little bag of documents, keys, and cash which was carefully stored for me until I came back for it. Overall was glad I stayed there and would recommend to others. Could be a bit loud if you have the wrong neighbors.

Room Tip: Ask for terrace room on garden side if you don't want the noise of Portal del Angel.
