Reviewed 7 July 2014

This hotel is located near the metro and just a few blocks from Las Ramblas. As an added bonus the metro stop is the same line that takes you directly to La Sagrada Familia.

The rooms are clean and spacious.

The front desk is easy to work with. We were there unfortunately during a taxi strike but they were able to arrange a private car service for us so we could get from the cruise ship pier to the hotel and then from the hotel to the airport. (They were able to arrange the initial transfer via email as we learned about the strike 2 days before docking in Barcelona.)

Simply a great hotel in a great location.

The hotel location was very convenient and a close walk to la rambla and the barrio gotic. Front desk very helpful with suggestions of restaurants in the area, how to travel the Metro and whatever else we needed.

Good location for tourism (Ramblas 10 min. walk) and the Metro is outside the front door. Very good breakfast. The room was quiet and very clean, very friendly staff, pool on the roof....... all in all - excellent.

The Hotel was fine in every respect. We tried to go up to the top floor area to look out since we were on a low floor in the back of the hotel but it was locked up. The hotel is over all a good hotel with a good value. I don't know if I would stay in that location again as it was a little out of the way however it is right next to the metro which is very handy and a fantastic way to get around. Lots of restaurants nearby.

We stayed here Monday to Friday, we were very impressed with the hotel and the room was lovely, the staff are most helpful from the reception staff to the waitress on the pool side bar who was excellent, the pool and solarium were very clean. The breakfast food was of very good standard, we were 2 girls staying there and we could not have picked a better hotel for location, comfort and price, would definitely go back again
