“Not bad, but you should find somewhere better”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Booked this hotel for a week, location is actually pretty good, within walking distance of several parks and extremely near metro. But was disappointed by the lack of a "hotel" feel. There is just a table in front that says "Check-In Point" and I didn't get a feel that they genuinely enjoyed my stay or my business.

We booked this hotel directly by phone, and paid by internet in advance in order to have the benefit of a reduced price. The reservation was carried out in this way because of difficulty in communicating with the operator at the hotel reservation site handling their rooms.

The stay was flawless. Rooms large, double--paned windows kept out the boulevard noise (very proximate), room amenities, though spare, were top quality. Had we guessed this in advance, we would have extended our first-time Barcelona visit and would have left Tarragona to another weekend.

The hotel is functionally close to the US Consulate, as well as to museums, and to the Ramblas (3 subway stops).

We are hoping to find associated facilities in other cities in Spain, but in the meantime, though we are really driving distance from Barcelona, we may just make plans for a Guillermo Tell weekend before the tourists pour in.

Room Tip: Parking is a bit pricey at $24 per day.

We stayed there for one night, it was a good night sleep, we like it the price paid, we had some difficulties with the safe deposit box on the room, they had to change the batteries to make it work, the only regret we experienced was with the lack of information from the front desk, there was a phone, but there weren't any instructions on which number to dial the front desk, made me to go downstairs three times to get someone open the safe,

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a short break (3 nights) last week. The young guy who served us at the front desk was a new addition to the hotel just that week and made us feel welcome! We were so pleasantly surprised with the double bed in the room especially - it was massive and we had three fantastic sleeps! You can hear some street noise outside from time to time but nothing that will keep you awake - the hotel is in a good location because it's not placed directly in the city centre and there's a metro a 30 second walk away.

The hotel was modern and clean, and I'd definitely consider coming back here if we were to return to Barcelona for a short stay again.

We spent 4 nights here recently; the room was on the main street so fairly noisy in the mornings, despite double-glazing. The room was pretty comfortable, large, kept spotless with a nice big bathroom. We found the staff taciturn (to put it politely) - we actually got one of them to to say "buenos dias" one day! We ate only one breakfast here - preferring to go to one of the local bakers for a decent coffee and croissant.
The hotel is near the metro, but otherwise was too far out of town for us. We did tend to walk in from there - which was pleasant and we saw a lot more of the non-touristy areas. We wouldn't use this again if we went back - prefer something closer in.
