If you want a central location for a long weekend, on the metro network and walking distance of all of the key sites, then it is in a great place, and no doubt why it was booked.
A great welcome on checkin , very friendly, and good first impressions of the public areas.The issue though is the layout and design of the rooms in what is a relatively expensive hotel ( we paid 140 euros a night , prepaid rate via booking.com, room only).
A classic case of design over content- I always feel the room designers should be made to live in the rooms they have designed as a punishment, when will hoteliers learn to ask regular travellers to design rooms ?).
Its not that I have anything against stark white rooms, I may not like the feeling that I am in a fridge, but it doesn't put me off.completely.
What does is the trend to have a glass walled shower room ( no bath note !) , with the sink and vanity unit in the main bedroom.
Listen to the words carefully-bathroom and bedroom ! A clue there, they should be separate rooms ! what is worst is when it is built badly so the doors don't close properly- giving no privacy , and an uncomfortable feeling when sharing the room and using the toilet !
Add to this a very small room ( OK , its an old building , but its charging new prices !), and the usual requirement for a masters in electrical engineering to use the light control panel ( on/off used to work simply !), and you begin to regret leaving someone else to book the room for you.
The hotel managed to change us to a larger room on the 2nd day, however they failed to listen to the comments made and simply put us in an other room with the same sized bathroom and uncomfortable lack of privacy.In fact , according to the front desk this was a Superior Room , although I would struggle to see if had any added value over the Dble they shifted us from.
Breakfast was OK , but just OK, we went out after the first morning and found better fare locally,small gym on the rooftop not worth visiting , tiny plunge pool - won't return , shame!

Room Tip: rooms on the back are quieter, and have a small terrace

Dear Newtontj,

First of all thank you for the time used in writing your comments and thank you for sharing your reviews with us.

I take note of your comment about the size of your room and I apologize for the inconvenience that has been able to cause.

We regret to read you did not enjoy your stay with us because of the designed of the room, neither of our plunge pool, the perfect place to relax and enjoy the city views.

After that, I take note about the lovely comments from our staff members and I assure you that they will be communicated to all the staff.

Thank you once again and kind regards from Barcelona.

The hotel is in a great location; everything is a short walk from the hotel; any of the Gaudi houses, Las Ramblas; everything! The only thing, which was a bit of a surprise was the glass door in your room between the bedroom and bathroom, but other than that, food and cleanliness was very good. Service was great and the rooftop bar had a good atmosphere. The pool could have been bigger, but as we only did 2 nights, we didn't really have a chance to use it as there's so much else to be doing in Barcelona. Overall a great hotel.

This was my 3rd H10 in Barcelona and definitely the best so far.
Its beautiful inside, very modern, quite minimalist but good.
We checked in and were immediately offered a glass of Cava, shown to a city balcony room with the best triple glazing ever.
The room was really nice, slick, comfortable , good walk in shower, beautiful fresco ceiling with cherubs etc.
Service was excellent, rooms quiet and very comfortable.
Breakfast was a brilliant choice of just about everything, and good quality.
Hotel has a roof top pool ( plunge) and balcony with a cocktail bar.
The location is great , it take 2 minutes to walk to Cataluyna square and just a few minutes to be in Bari Gotic.
This is a very good hotel group and I will defiitely stay again soon.

Room Tip: Go for a city balcony not an inwards facing and ask for a fesco ceiling, you wake up felling like th...

Stayed for 3 nights during the Easter holidays and was really impressed with the hotel and the service. We were given a glass of Cava on arrival. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Lovely modern decor in the reception areas and lovely quiet areas around the hotel to relax. Our room was spacious and modern. The Nespresso machine in the room was a lovely touch as was the jar of marshmallows on the table by the lift. The room was well stocked with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel along with other little travel packs. Lovely white towelling robes and slippers in the bathroom. Our room was very quiet and had good blackout curtains. The rooftop terrace with plunge pool and pool bar was a lovely area to chill. The hotel was perfectly positioned just off Plaça de Catalunya and equi-distant between two metro stops both a block away. It's an easy walk down La Ramblas or into El Born or up Passeig de Gracia. We loved the hotel and would definitely recommend it. Considering where it was situated it was very quiet and although fully booked we hardly saw any other guests.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back of the hotel to ensure it's quiet.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights the first weekend of Easter 2014. This was our first visit to Barcelona. The hotel was perfectly located and it was a very nice hotel. The staff was helpful and service minded and met you with a big smile. The room was perfect, clean and very nice decorated. The terrace was a good place for me to relax and spend time at reading a book, while my husband prefered to take his siesta in the room. The extra service with a glass of cava and the marsmellows at the elevator entrance was a very nice touch. If we ever come back to Barcelona, as I hope we do soon, this hotell will be our first choise. And I will definately recommend it to others.
