“Great location, friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

The hotel is more than decent although it won't compete with Marriott. The location is perfect, 2 minutes from the Metro in a nice and extra quiet area.

We got a small room at first and when we mentioned it the staff, Patricia, was super friendly and upgraded us to a better room. It was still small, although not too compact and we enjoyed it. Moreover it had a balcony which more than made up for the room size and the small bathroom.

We got the room with breakfast which was absolutely worth the money (11 Euro). Great (unlimited) cappuccino and latte (from a machine), eggs and mini hot dogs, a few kinds of bread and cheese and more. Trust me, such a breakfast will cost you 3 times this amount in Barcelona.

The TV in the room was OK, although only 2 English speaking channels are provided ((BBC and China News, for Pete's sake) but not CNN. Should not be a problem if your main concern is seeing the city although it would be nice to have CNN and maybe another sports channel (Wimbledon was on but we couldn't watch it).

To recap, the hotel is more than decent (although cleaning the room was not perfect), breakfast is good and location is superb. The staff (mostly Patricia) is amazing and the deal (about 78 Euro a day) is a good bargain. Go for it.

Room Tip: If you can afford the extra for the room with a balcony - take it.

It has been my absolute pleasure to stay at this hotel. There are a number of things that happened that might have ended very badly if it weren't for their kindness, consideration and efficiency.
Firstly, my ferry was delayed 6 hours, but fortunately this was not a problem as they have 24 hour reception so that when I arrived at 1.30 they were waiting - and had even offered me help trying to get a taxi from the port. The reception staff have been absolutely wonderful - ever single one.
Then they forgave a serious mistake I'd made accidentally double-booking, when they would have been well within their rights to charge me for it.
Also, in terms of value for money - for a three star the price was exceptional. The room is large and comfortable, has a massage bath (?) , and I slept very comfortably. There is aircon (I barely used it), safe (you can get the key for 20E deposit) and excellent wifi.
I must however mention the downsides, not enough though to lower the 5 star rating.
The hotel is a few minutes walk from the metro; though the line is quick and goes straight to Liceu. I think I would have struggled to bring my bags from there.
The walls could do with a freshening, but in my experience it is very hard to keep hotel walls clean and I have rarely seen clean walls.
I could hear the couple above getting - ahem - rambunctious. But I suspect maybe everyone in half a mile could too.
I was so glad to have made the choice I tried to extend my stay but unfortunately couldn't as the hotel was fully booked.

The location of this hotel is just perfect if you are not looking to be right in the rush of the beautiful city of Barcelona (but still close enough to it). It is a little hard to find if you arrive at night as it is positioned on a slightly hidden street. But it is close to the main attractions and gives you the opportunity to get a good night sleep after all that walking around. The rooms are clean and comfortable, service every day and they do a great job. The staff is polite and helpful. We did not have breakfast at the hotel as we decided to eat out and enjoy a cup of coffee on LAS RAMBLAS where all the tourists "meet" to "share" a meal.

Use a T10 ticket is is really the best way to get around with public transportation. A lot of main sites are at a walking distance from one another so you will not use the metro sistem that often.

We stayed in the hotel last week for 4 nights, having read previous reviews I was a little dubious however we were not disappointed we had a great stay at the hotel, the staff upon arrival were great showing us the best maps to use to get around pointing out landmarks to go to and the best way to get around Barcelona with the Metro. Yes the hotel is a 10 minute Metro trip into the centre but its so easy and cheaper then getting taxis everywhere the hotel is literally 10 minutes form anywhere and if you unsure of which line to get just ask the hotel staff who are more than happy to assist.
The hotel room was lovely basic but just what we needed for a weekend, we had a surprise in the room with jacuzzi bath which was great to use every night. We didnt have breakfast as we found really great places to eat round the town and in Barcelona for about 5 euros for a coffee and a pastry so this is reccommended
Fantastic visit to Barcelona and the Hotel was great thank you for all your assistance.

Great value, quiet hotel, nice clean room with spa bath, friendly and competent staff.

Location looks a bit out of the way on a map, but it's actually just a few stops on the metro from the centre of town.

I stayed in this hotel for a weekend and I wouldn't have much to complain about. I found the place to be a very good deal, it's a very nice 3 star hotel, nice staff, very good rooms, comfy bed. I just found the location to be the only problem, a little far away from the main sites, but then the place is quiet....so it makes up for it. Parc Guell is a 15min walk from the hotel, cheap cafes and grocery stores all around so no need to spend the 11€ the hotel asks for a breakfast.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs a quiet, comfortable room in Barcelona, while visiting for a few days. Don't go there if you need entertainment, nightlife or even Spanish Charm, it is after all a very good standard 3 star hotel...... :)
