“Three day stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

Location is the key to this hotel. Five minute walk to Las Ramblas and the city centre. 20 minute walk to the beach. Perfect location. Breakfast is buffet style and is of excellent quality with loads to choose from. Yes the hotel is a little dated and is in need of an overhaul but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The airport is 20 mins away in a taxi 25 euros one way but 35 on the way back!!! Who knows why??. All in all great location, value for money and clean

Room Tip: Ask for one that faces inward rather than outwards onto the streets, much quieter - also ask for non...

We stayed at this hotel last week for 3 nights and couldn't have been happier, we had room to rear of the hotel which was lovely and quiet, the room was clean and the air conditioning worked well. Breakfast was fantastic with lots to choose from. It's location was excellent for beaches and Las Ramblas and it was close to the Metro, which is much more pleasant to use than the London Underground! The staff were exceptionally helpful with regards information about places to go, restaurants, directions and just general information, especially the Manager - Ryan. We had a fantastic break and would highly recommend the hotel and would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Talk to the staff, if you want a quieter room they will direct you to a room at the rear.

This hotel is located perfectly in Barcelona on Avenida Parallel, a 10 min walk from Las Ramblas, Montjuic and with a metrostation 15 meters from the lobby. This is a huge plus!!

It is affordable, the breakfast buffet was very nice and the rooms are clean. Maybe It's a little worn down, but nothing that affects your stay.
Had a reasonable big room with a large double bed.

Some renovation noise - even after 17 o'clock - but that should be a shortterm thing.

Would come back!

Me and my boyfriend stayed here last week for a 3 night city break and can say I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was clean, central and good value for money. The hotel is in walking distance from the city and not far from the beach either. The breakfast was really nice with a lot to choose from. Drinks at the bar where quite expensive, but i think that's because your in the city. The staff behind the reception desk where friendly enough although if they recommend a restaurant to eat don't go! They recommended a restaurant and the meal came to 90 euros, and it was definitely not worth that. All in all this hotel was really nice and I would definitely stay again.

We are a young couple who booked with this hotel for our vactation in Spain. We were a bit concerned with the noise from the street but we were on the 6th floor with a balcony and did not hear any noise. The buffet breakfast was very good with plenty of fresh selection to choose from. Hotel receptionist were very helpful and most of the time we asked for help and directions and we were very satisfied with the service.

We have just come back from a wonderful 5 night stay. It was a lovely hotel and very easy to walk to when we got off the bus from the airport. It was also brilliant for walking to Las Ramblas and the Marina and the Metro stop was just outside hotel. We had a family room with a separate area for our 2 teenage daughters which was ideal. The room was very nice and the beds were extremely comfortable. We had 2 televisions, coffee making facilities and very much needed air conditioning. Our room was at the very end of the corridor so we had no noise whatsoever.
The breakfast was one of the best with huge variety of everything you could want, it was very well replenished and the staff were always helpful and happy. We asked for more towels and milk on separate occasions which were promptly delivered to our room.
Only negative I could say was the towels were a bit past their best.

My friend and I came for a short break to barcelona and stayed in the TRYP Barcelona Apolo.
We had a room with two single beds, nice and clean. We asked for a room not over looking the road as we had read the reviews on trip advisor it was not noisy.
Overall we thought it was great. Close to les rambles but not too close. There is a metro stop right outside it is very easy to get around from this hotel.
The staff were fine.
We got a free breakfast as part of our booking and it was great.
We were able to store our bags in a cupboard on the last day so we weren't dragging them about.
It is the perfect hotel to stay in if you are coming on a sight seeing trip.
The only thing that would have been nice would be a pool but we went to another hotel bought a drink and used theres when we wanted a swim.
Its not a luxury hotel but for the prices you can get rooms for here you would be a bit mad to expect it too be amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for a room thats overlooking the courtyard.
