“No more than average for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2013

The hotel is ideally located near the top of Ramblas and easy to find. We were offered an upgraded room when we arrived for ten euros so we accepted, although I'm not sure the room we got was any better than the one we had booked. It was certainly clean but rather small. The style was very modernistic with oddly shaped furnishings on a par with Ikea. There was no bathtub, only a shower and it was poorly designed with no ledge at the shower door to stop water leaking into the room. The bed was very comfortable and the linen very white and clean. Breakfast was so-so, the usual pastries, cheese, cold cuts, fruit, and yogurt. They had a toaster but it didn't work too well. Coffee was from a machine and wasn't the best. It was no more than an average hotel and a little overpriced. We have stayed at much better places for less.

Room Tip: Don't pay for the offered upgrade until you check other rooms.

The staff were so friendly, kind and helpful, they helped us n all our needs from tourism informations, bookings, directions..special thanks for lovely EMMa who helped me for around 2 hours in purchasing ticket for Barcelona football game. Room was so clean, comfort and very quiet. stylish decor. very good breakfast with so nice staff. the sitting area in front of the breakfast was amazing. fast and free WIFI. perfect location directly on beautiful Plaza Catalonia and the start of the marviolous Ramblas street. beside the hotel is the famous large shopping center El Corte ingles with big supermarket. Palza Catalonia is the center of the city with a lot of nice resturants and shops and give you the easiest access to go anywhere with the main metro station and tour buses and airport buses. elevators were good and fast. AC was excellent.

Room Tip: Room in the center of the hotel maybe quieter. just tell the front desk what you need and they will...

Great location with easy access to everything you'd want to see over the course of a weekend break. We stayed for 2 nights and paid €10 per night for an upgrade to the exec room. Beautifully comfortable bed, walk in shower and views of the cathedral. Only things missing were in room coffee making facilities and a bath. Staff are great. Raquel looked after us well and added some "sweet tapas" to celebrate my birthday. Nice touch. We took breakfast on the first morning but it was nothing special. There is a Starbucks 2 mins around the corner which is where we went subsequently.

If you like a good value boutique hotel then go for Pau. Similar feel to Moods in Prague where we stayed in January.

We walked everywhere with everything within a 30min radius. Perfect.

Thanks to all at Pau for a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Exec room 607. Quiet and great view to the cathedral. No bath though to soak those aching feet!

We’ve stayed here this November for two days one before our cruise and one on return.
The hotel has a brilliant location at a very reasonable price, situated just 3 min. walking distance from Piazza Catalunya, where all the important bus stations are and very close to Las Ramblas.
The rooms are modern and clean, the reception staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good as well, the best coffee I had in a long time served at breakfast in a hotel.
Highly recommended.

Fantastic central location, chic, funky, modern, a bed that was ultra comfortable and a reasonable price to boot! What more could anyone want? Upon arrival we were offered a free upgrade to an executive room and to complete an already excellent experience there was a free pick-up service (a special promotion by Opel cars) to drive us to or pick us up from the destination of our choice. The icing on the cake was that the friendly and helpful receptionist recommended a local Tapas restaurant which was so good we ate there 2 nights in a row. What a great hotel experience - well done to the staff and management.

We stayed here for 4 night this month. First night we had a very small room-we asked to be upgraded to a bigger room and were so for 10 euro a night.l Definitely worth it. The desk staff at this hotel could not have been more friendly, pleasant and helpful! They just couldn't do enough for us, with our questions, bookings, etc. And I mean all of them-sorry I can't think of all their names, but there was Joel, Rachel. . .We asked for a hot water maker for that straight-out-of-bed coffee and got it. We asked for a regular chair and got that too, right away. The hotel is small, and perfectly located (we had done research on TA) half a (quiet) block off Placa de Catalunya and a few steps from the airport bus. Staff is young and may I repeat again, helpful and friendly. Place is very clean. Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: don't bother with the "standard" rooms, too small to move in.
