Please do not let the other reviews put you off. We had a great deal for this hotel with "1800" hotels, only paid £100 for two nights with breakfast included. Yes, this hotel is really a three star but our room (502) was clean, comfy beds, large powerful shower, everything you need for a weekend break. We were pleased we were at the back of the hotel as the rooms at the front would be noisy. It meant we could open the window at night and get some fresh air. Yes there is an apartment block at the back, but hey this is Barcelona! Unless you have booked a hotel next to Cuitadella park all the hotels will have similar views! (were they expecting herds of migrating wilderbeast!!) Sorry, couldnt resist that one.
The reception staff were very friendly and the lady who served coffee was also lovely, you just had to ask if you wanted more or help yourself.
There are two lifts, call both of them if you dont want to wait, having said that, we never waited along time.
The hotel has a luggage store. It is 2-3 mins from "jaume I" Metro and 7 mins. walk from Catalunya Square. The breakfast is typical of 3 star City hotels in Spain. Lots of pastries, plenty of bacon but eggs a little over cooked.
PS We are discerning travellers who have stayed in lots of hotels, villas and apartments. This hotel is not for someone looking for the "Hotel Experience" it is for those wanting to get out and about and "do" Barcelona, knowing that a centrally located hotel with a comfy bed and good breakfast awaits! ENJOY
