“Great Location”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

The best part of this hotel is the location, 2 minute walk to main railway station. Room and service were good, not great, although Jose, one of the bellmen was the best part, as he was very helpful in all facets.
Housekeeping was spotty in that hard to reach and not quick to react.
Overall value for price paid was fair.
Make sure and eat at the breakfast buffet as it is bountiful, tasty and fairly priced.

Stayed with friends for 3 nights. Had originally booked and paid through Navalar (Clever Hotels) who went into administration 5 days before we flew out but I spoke to the hotel who re-booked us at their own rates so we didn't have too much hassle. Hotel is in a busy area with lots of pubs, restaurants and shops nearby. The tourist buses stop 100 yards away and a huge train station is directly opposite the hotel so transport is no issue. We got a taxi to and from Terminal 2 airport and it cost 35 euro for 3 passengers . Barcelona is a huge city so we were unsure which area was best to stay in but delighted with this choice. Hotel rooms were spotless and beds / pillows were fabulously comfy . Nice big bathroom and amazing views - we were on the 12 floor executive rooms. Restaurant on 22 floor is spectacular , big choice for breakfast ( loved the mimosas ) . We had dinner there one night which was lovely but not a big choice ( especially not for vegetarians) . I hope to visit Barcelona again and would definately stay here again !!

This hotel was booked for us by a conference organiser, and we were a little concerned that it was out of the way, but were so pleased that we stayed here. The hotel looks very dated on the outside, but inside is very modern. We were given a room on the 18th floor, and the stunning view is incredible. We spent a lot of time just gazing out the windows. We had a corner room, so could see 180 degrees of this amazing city, from the mountains to the ocean. The staff were all very pleasant and spoke excellent English. Our room was large and with an enormous king bed, which was quite firm, but the pillows were great. There was plenty of storage space, and the bathroom was enormous with incredible water pressure. The wifi was reliable. The breakfast was nice each day, although the coffee was not good. We had room service on our first night as we arrived quite late, and did not enjoy the food, so did not eat dinner in the restaurant. There are plenty of restaurants nearby and one particular one was our absolute favourite - Addis Abeba (address - C/Vallespir 44, Sants Barcelona) an Ethiopian restaurant where you were made to feel like an honoured guest. The hotel is located right next to Sants Estacio where you can catch the very efficient Metro anywhere. The Metro is so easy and we found very safe way to get around Barcelona. We purchased 5 day travel tickets which gave us unlimited travel on the Metro. The area of Sants is always busy with people, so we felt very safe walking around here even at night. This hotel is well worth considering for a stay in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing views. Purchase multi day tickets and use the metro - such an efficient w...

After approximately 30 hours tavel time, we were greeted at reception by Luis and Cristina. Both impressed us immediately with their hospitality skills. Our room was upgraded to the 14 floor and we could see the Magic Fountain and the Palace of Catalunya Art Museum. Kig size bed was great, pillows and bed linen good quality. Bathroom had dual sinks, separate bath,shower, toilet and bidet rooms. Ice machine on each floor, just down the hall. Brekfast was of excellent quality at 13 euros a head on the 23 floor with panoramic views. Fresh juice, great coffee and a good chioce of healthy options as well as my persoanall favoutite cake of the day.
Barcelona's main railay station is adjacent and the metro is easy to use to most attractions.
Taxi is 23 euros from the airport. Highly recommended hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a high room, the view is worth it!

The location of the Hotel was perfect. It has a fantastic view of the city and you can even see the fountains from your room. Station Saint is in front of the Hotel so you can take trains and go wherever you want, in the city and outside of it. The staff at the reception was exceptionally friendly! We also enjoyed very much the big and comfortable beds.

This is a solid modern business class hotel. Not much in the way of elegance , but extremely comfortable with excellent beds, showers, internet connectivity, and restaurants. Convenient to train station, and a few blocks from the Plaza Espana and the bull ring shopping mall. Close to the old convention center and about a 10Euro cab ride to the new Gambia congress center. Also convenient metro access to Gambia Fira from Plaza Espana. I had an upgraded room booked via the internet as a weekend package promotion which had a magnificent view of the city. Would definitely stay here again, though might want to stay closer to Rambla if main mission was tourism.

Room Tip: Book an upgraded room via internet with a high level and a scenic view.

We stayed here a few nights before our cruise, and one night after. The hotel was excellent and the staff was great. Close to the metro that will take you anywhere. Also 11 euro taxi ride to the cruise terminals. Taxi are our front of the hotel around the clock.
