The hotel claims to be 4 star and what it provides is almost a 4 star standard; the problem is all it provides is a room. There is no swimming pool, only a few rooms have balconies (which I think are an extra charge), no bar as there was a notice saying the bar and restaurant were shut for the duration of our stay, and the rooms themselves were on the small side. The wifi was only in the lobby which only had about 6 small tables to sit at when using it.
On the plus side, the staff were lovely and were very helpful with booking excursions and giving travel advice etc.
The location was great as the beach was about a 5-10 minute walk and was across the main road. Port Olympic was about a 15minute walk and had a variety of nice restaurants. There is a small-ish supermarket in a 5min walk. Train station 5-10min walk. Bus stop into Las Rambla right outside the hotel.
To sum up- the location is great, however the lack of facilities within the hotel lets the hotel down. Even the television wasn't much entertainment as all the English channels had Spanish voice overs on. The tv was in hotel mode therefore I wasn't able to manage any settings to try and change that. And the man at reception didnt know either.
If youre looking for a hotel purely for sleeping in then this hotel is good. However, if you like a bar or games room or just an area for socialising within the hotel, then this isn't for you.
