“Perfect location to discover Barcelona by foot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

The weekend of the motogp had came on us pretty quickly and many of the hotels we had tried were all full. However we did check the reviews and made the booking. I'm glad we did.
This hotel is literally 50m from place de Catalunya, at the top of Las ramblas and opens to the far more interesting area just one and two streets to the east of Las ramblas.
The room was compact, but was very clean and had all the necessary fitments for your stay. Several power outlets, air conditioning, TV, and minibar. All very chic, functional and modern. A decent breakfast buffet with a range of fresh meats, breads, cheese, coffee and fruit.
Reception staff were all young, very friendly and welcoming and where assistance was sought, we found them also very helpful.

Overall, a pleasant stay in a perfect location. There were two of us staying for three nights over a weekend and the cost was €455.

I personally prefer the older style hotels with a little more character, but I would definitely stay here again.

Dear Craig,

Thank you for your comment, it's true we are just next to the main square Plaza Cataluña, and 1 minute away from the Airbus shuttle bus.

All the team hopes to welcome you very soon,

Best regards from all the staff,

Close to Las Ramblas. Reception staff are very friendly, but not super knowledgable on transportation options to port. Unique atmosphere. Rooms are smallish, but not so cramped that you can't function. Our Bathroom had the sink/vanity area outside the bathroom which is really helpful when traveling with 2. Hairdryer provided as well. :) Great storage throughout the room.

Lucky me, my room was upgraded to a suite. Having the extra room inside was nice but having the balcony with 2 day beds in sunny, hot Barcelona was the best. The staff were so friendly and helpful; the room so welcoming I thought I could just stay on forever. It was a terrific stay. The hotel is in a quieter area surrounded by great restaurants, cafes and stores. It's an easy walk to shop or sightsee and close to a metro that will take you everywhere.

Our stay in this hotel, as a young married couple was excellent. First of all the location is perfect, near Placa Catalunya. The receptionists were so kind and friendly. The room was clean and furnished in an interesting modern style. At the 5th floor the wi-fi signal was very good. We definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms with street view are noisier but with a better view, while the rooms on the courtyard side...

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in June and loved the location. We felt we were so central to everything. Just steps away from the Barri Gothic, La Rambla, and several metro stations. We could also take a longer walk or just metro a few stops to get to the beach, Gracia, and several Gaudi locations (Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia). I also loved that the hotel is 1/2 a block from the Aerobus stop (don't take a cab to the hotel from the airport, just take the Aerobus for 5.90 euros/person. It's super easy. Get on the bus at BCN airport, then take the bus all the way to the last stop at Placa Catalunya. The hotel is right around the corner. Note that the bus only stops 3 times - it's a bus designed for travellers)

About the room itself...

We booked the executive room, but we got upgraded to the executive room with a terrace. The terrace overlooked the hotels courtyard, so not much of a view. The terrace was also only big enough to stand on. (I'm not complaining, just letting you know what size of terrace to expect) The room was big enough for a king-sized bed, two nightstands, and small table and chair, and a closet for clothing.

The bathroom had a full bathtub with shower. However the bathroom itself is not very private. The door has about a 1" gap between the frame and the door itself and did not lock. I've been with my husband for 18 years, so this wasn't a huge deal, but again, something to be aware of.

I found the room to be extremely clean. The sheets and towels were changed daily and everything was crisp and white.

The décor of the room is "modern". It was different and I kind of liked it. Lots of good lighting too.

The hotel felt very safe, as the front desk was right by the hotel entrance. The front door locked around dinner time, and the front desk staff always buzzed you in. You also need your key card to get to your floor. Given how centrally located the hotel is, I appreciated the extra security. (The neighbourhood felt safe, just very busy) The hotel room also had a safe.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would recommend it to others.

We recently stayed at this hotel and cannot fault it.
We had a twin room, and although on the small side, it was very clean and cleaned to the same standard each day. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, so if you like your brews, take a travel kettle as we did! Wifi was brilliant, and you could connect throughout the hotel.
We had the breakfast each day, and at €8.95, we thought it was very good value.
Location of this hotel is spot on, close to everything!
If i was going to travel back to Barcelona, i would definitely stay here again!
