Thank you to the staff members for their very cooperative. Air condition was not working very well but the weather was good. Thank you for every thing. One elevator was not working very well but the hotel repaired immediately.

The hotel is modern and clean, very well located not far off La Rambla so make's it an ideal location. Nearby there are lots of small bars / patisserries for grazing and watching the world go by.

The hotel staff where friendly and the rooms good value for money, the AC was working a treat and the beds most comfortable. The only observations negatively and perhaps slightly harshly was that the decor perhaps needed a refresh.

Every day 4 bottles of water where added to the mini bar fridge which was most welcome, to note there was no iron/board and no coffee/tea making facility in the room.

The hotel breakfast offer was okay but slightly on the expensive side charging 11 euros.

A very short walk away from the hotel...2/3 min there is secure underground parking - 39euros/ 24hrs a small in door market and a sight seeing bus stop to do the various city tours which is well worth doing. 27euros for a day ticket or 35 euros for a 2 day ticket - a 'no brainer' to get around the city and see the sights.

All in all a very good base for a short break and you should be spending more time out of the room than in it of course!

Our stay had a rather tricky start, being given a room at the back of the hotel that was dark, dirty and very small with the only window available opening directly onto a brick wall. After complaining, we were moved to a new room, which was little better, with the above followed by a broken air conditioning system. Honestly, if you are thinking of going to Barcelona, do it, but just don't pay out for this place.

We had originally booked into an apartment which turned out to be a complete disaster so we decamped to here. We were lucky enough to be in a back room 614 which gave us a great view over rooftops to Sagrada Familia. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds so very comfortable. Breakfast too expensive so we went to the cafe two doors down and had great food and coffee. Mccarthys almost next door was our local haunt for a drink. Brilliant Mohitjas for €3.
Excellent location for sightseeing, close to the Cathedral, Picasso museum and the Catalan Music museum. Ramblas in easy walking distance. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel but sleep at the back.

Excellent

Very Very noisy room, could not sleep the whole night. Hotel is not 4 star standard, maybe 2-3 star.
We changed to a "real" 4 star hotel.
There was a big differense in the standard of hotels.
Staff was ok, location good.

This hotel is by no means 4 star but it is clean and pleasant and in a really excellent location for a city break in Barcelona. The reception staff are very helpful.

The room was rather small but very clean and had free use of a digital safe.

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend break. Location is really good so if you are looking more location than luxury this is the place for you.

The TV was broken-stated locked-when we asked for it to be changed they said the technician had gone home but we could change room or wait till the morning. We waited, but the next day-still broken!

Its definitely not a four star hotel, probably a 2 star but if you want something basic for a reasonable price this is the place for you!
