We had a great experience during our 5 day stay. The rooms were very clean, quiet and modern. Beds were really comfortable. The staff were very helpfull and friendly. Location was also great. It is 5 minutes walk to La Ramblas.

Globally good stay in this 3 star hotel
+
Staff is friendly
Rooms are large. A bit dark but in the hot summer days it's not an issue.
Location is ok. Close from la Rambla although the neighbourhood is not so friendly.

Rooms are clean but could be cleaned a bit better. Stains on the white walls (like when the luggage gets a shock on it), floor definitely needs more cleaning. Floor is either white or black depending on whether you are in the bedroom or bathroom but in both case it needs a perfect cleaning as there is either white stains or dark stains.
Very disappointed by the pool. Don't stay on this hotel if you plan on enjoying the pool. Way too small for such a big hotel.

The hotel website gives an accurate picture of this hotel. It is clean, well run and centrally located. The roof top plunge pool is ideal for cooling off after a busy day of sightseeing (remember to take your own towel). The vending machines and outside area off the lobby are really useful. A couple of minutes walk from La Rambla and the waterfront and yet on a peaceful street. We had a great value stay here and I would recommend to friends, couples and people about to embark on a cruise.

Room Tip: I would imagine the higher the better.

Was pleasantly surprised at the modern décor throughout. Both public areas and rooms were bright, clean and modern. The location was good, very quiet and just a short walk on to The Ramblas. We didn't have breakfast as it was quite expensive but we did make use of the pool on the hotel roof which was a lovely haven in the heat of the day. Great idea to have vending machines in the lobby, which meant that ice cold drinks were available all day and night.
We also made use of the baggage storage facility - the lockers are huge so you only need one (think we paid about 5 euros) and good facilities for getting changed after a busy day sightseeing!
My only criticism was that we arrived fairly late (about 22.30) and there was a couple checking in in front of us that had not been to Barcelona before. The man on reception (who was on his own) checked them in and then spent 10 minutes talking them through where to go, what to see, how to get there etc etc, great for them but not so great for us who had to stand there waiting when all we wanted to do was check-in, dump our bags and head off out for something to eat (we're Barcelona regulars so didn't need the advice).
Can't knock him for the service he provided to them but would have been good if he'd have offered to go through stuff with them when he didn't have people waiting to check in.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor with a sea view.

I stayed here for 7 night and had a great experience.
The hotel is very nice and has everything you need.
The view from the rooftop pool is amazing.

The thing i liked most about this hotel is the staff - they were all great, very nice and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the hotel also has a great location.

Cannot fault this hotel and can't believe it rates only 3 stars. Modern hotel in great location, close to Ramblers and once you see Ramblers you don't want to be any closer than this. Barcelona Harbour and famous Christopher Columbus statue at the end of the street, metro stations are close and they are clean, efficient and airconditioned,similar to Paris and way better than the London tube. We had a room on the 1st floor which was spacious,clean and quiet, serviced every day, cannot believe if anyone could fault this place.I have left the best to last, the reception staff are unbelievablly helpful and friendly, have to mention Alexandro (hope the spelling is correct) every piece of advice he gave us was spot on and it was no trouble to book rail tickets or what ever else we needed, such a comfort for us Aussies who cant speak any language but English, thank you
