I stayed here with my 2 children before and after our cruise.
The staff were helpful and kind. The rooms are smallish, (which is what I expected) but very comfortable and clean. The walls are thin...so be prepared to hear your neighbours! And we had no view from our window. This was not important to us though.

The location is fabulous. Walking distance to everything. We received free breakfast, which is always a bonus.

We were surprised with a bottle of champagne and 3 slices of cake on our return visit. The kids were thrilled to have a (tiny) glass of champagne!!!

I would definitely return to and recommend this hotel!

Great hotel near Las Ramblas. Rooms very small but nice. Since my friend and I had requested twin beds and they could not accomodate us we both got our own rooms. Continental breakfast was included. Very helpful staff. Our stay was short since we were departing on a cruise the following day.

Excellent location within easy walking distance of the Rambles. Hotel staff were very helpful and it seems from the other reviews that the champagne is actually complimentary, a point we did not grasp! No problems with our particular room which was very clean and well equipped. Again, however, the air conditioning was not fully effective and if temperatures rose any higher than the low thirties, I think it would be pretty miserable. I did enquire about it and was told one could not adjust the temperature, it was either on or off! Buffet breakfasts were excellent with a wide choice of a cooked "English" or continental, a good start to sightseeing.There were also free daily newspapers available, a nice touch. Overall good value and would recommend hotel, especially if the AC could be sorted.

Room Tip: We were on the 5th (top) floor, no problems with noise or room size.

The hotel is very well located, close to the Plaza da Catalunia and other tourist sights.

They welcome us with a champagne glass and the room was lovely and clean. They also gave us a bottle of champagne and some delicious brownie due our celebration. The downside was that the AC was not working, in fact the temperature did not got lower than 25 C (77 F) what is really hot in the summer, so they staff provide us a small fan. :) The twin beds that have wheels so they moved as we move and for a couple is not convenient. The mini bar did not make the beverages cold, just keep their temperature as the hotel staff informed.

Their breakfast was great, we loved the sweet croissants!

The internet was reliable and they have a printer downstairs. When we come back to Barcelona in another season, that is not as hot as now, we might consider this hotel again.

I have visisted Barcelona twice....two years on the trot and both times I have stayed in this hotel. Although not the biggest Hotel in Barcelona it is superbly situated in this lovely city. As soon as we arrived we were meet with a lovely glass of champagne (or fresh orange for the non drinkers) which is a lovely way to start your holiday. Both rooms I have stayed in have been spotlessly clean and I have never had a problem with noise at night...slept like a baby!! The staff on reception have always been very keen to please, providing me with extra milk, tea, coffee or sugar when we have run out in our rooms. Breakfast was buffet style which my Husband and I prefer......build yourself up for a busy day ahead. If I was fortunate to go back to Barcelona I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Only drawback is the bar isn't very big but didn't affect us.

Positives: location, very friendly staff, clean and modern, good breakfast for a 3 star hotel.

Negatives: impossible to get any decent sleep during the whole stay. Having requested a quiet room we’ve ended up having a family from hell on our floor who were bashing doors, moving furniture and partying every night 3 nights in a row. Hotel solution offered was that we need to call their security at night when this happens again. Called security the following night – this did not result in any noise improvement. Complained to reception and their response was that they’ve spoken to the family and these guests have said that they are being quiet so it’s our word against theirs. Most absurd response I’ve ever received from a hotel.

In addition to noise problem – the heat in the room. Their aircon only works a lowest setting which is the middle of summer doesn’t really make any difference.
