“Great experience. To be recommended.”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

I am convinced that it is one of the best hotels I've ever attended. The staff is absolutely professional, friendly and efficient: during the check-in the hotel offers you a drink with a glass of Cava at the in-house bar.
The rooms are spacious, well-designed, with all the amenities; always well groomed and clean. It was very much appreciated the welcome gift.
Well organized in terms of any services (ticket booking, taxi calling).
A particular mention to the in-site restaurant: excellent fish cooking and the staff is high customer focused.
Nice pool in the penthouse.
Convenient location (Eixample district, close to Provença and Diagonal subway stations, Casa Pedrera, Rambla Catalunya… and a lot of great restaurants and cervcerias).
To be recommended. Absolutely.

Staff very helpful and accommodating. Location was good for the Eixample but a fair walk from the old town. Unfortunately, our keys didn't work for first two days, which was a bit of a pain. Shower water temperature was not consistent. Rooms were quite noisy and could hear quite a lot of what was going on outside. Pillows were odd shaped, so difficult to get comfortable. Roof terrace was nice, as was pool, and it was good to have someone dedicated to serving you on the terrace.

Really good hotel in good central location, within easy reach of lots of lovely bars and restaurants and stylish boutique shops. Comfortable beds, modern rooms, all very clean. Very friendly reception staff. Only minus was noise of underground (I think our room was directly above the stop), but this did not detract from our stay. Loved the rooftop pool for an early evening dip and drink. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Try and avoid those directly over the underground stop....i stayed on the second floor, those higher...

This hotel is within walking distances to most tourist attractions and the metro (diagonal and Passeig de Gracia stations - approx 10min walk). It boasts modern finishes and the rooms are well appointed and spacious. The breakfast menu is varied and fresh. The stand out aspect of our stay was the personalised, attentive and friendly service. The hotel is located along a busy road, however the glazed windows do keep out most of the noise.

Room Tip: For quieter rooms, request the 6th floor (top floor) not facing Balmes Road.

Josep (Reception) and I got off on the wrong foot as I had made a mistake with the booking online. He soon fixed the mistake and organised a top floor room with balcony as requested. Staff very friendly with recommendations and good service, rooms clean and modern. Hotel is in a great location and walking distance to town. We will be returning here.

One night stay at the hotel. Very impressed from reservations through to checkout. Comfortable room, cool rooftop pool and all the staff were so friendly to my son on his birthday. Will definitely return.
