“Best location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

The hotel is located in the center, just a few minutes walking to Catalunia Plaza on one side and Universitat plaza on the other side.
Rooms are well decorated and seem to be new.
If you prefer quite, ask for a room away from the street. We spent the first night facing the street and it was noisy. Facing tbe other side it was silence.
The crew is very helpful.
We hope to be back soon!

I booked this hotel 6 months ahead so got great price on romantic package including daily breakfast which was a buffet unlike any other. Who offers dessert cakes for breakfast? Close to aerobus to airport and las Ramblas. Highly recommend this hotel for Barcelona stay.

Dear carlouborn:
Thank you very much for your comments, our location closed to plaça Catalunya allows our visitors a walking distance exploring experience to the main venues of Barcelona, also metro station, railway and buses closed to H10 Universitat give you the possibility to explore more, as you say the distance to Aerobus is a good value to go to and come from the airport.
It's nice to notice you enjoyed our breakfast and spent a good time with us!
Wish to see you again in your next visit at Barcelona.

Marc Riera.

Great hotel, perfect location, easy to get to from airport. Lovely staff, good breakfast selection, clean room and fantastic bathroom. Great view from roof terrace bar. Been twice and will not hesitate in returning and recommending.

Room Tip: Room with view better than internal rooms

This hotel was recommened by out AAA travel agent. I am handicapped and although I can walk short distances I needed a room that was able to accommodate my electric scooter (similar to an electric wheelchair). The room was on the 2nd floor, small with 2 single beds but the hotel upgraded us so that we had a nice view of Universitat. It was charming. The front desk staff (especially Anna) went out of their way to help us make rail transportation reservations for a day trip that we took. The breakfast was included and was very good with many breakfast choices. There was a rooftop bar which we went to on our last night in Barcelona. Great views! Although the room was small it did not bother us in the least as we were hardly ever in the room (touring the city all day and evening). It was a room for sleeping and it was great! Also, the location was perfect as it was only a 5 minute walk to the start of the Ramblas and the Gothic area was 15 minutes away. If we were ever in Barcelona again, I would definitely stay at this hotel.

I booked a double room on their own website, when we got to our room we discovered it was actually a twin room and we would have to sleep in separate beds. When I complained to the reception staff all I was told to do was "push the beds together", they said that when you book a double room this is merely a "request", I argued that their website is very misleading then as nowhere does it say you are requesting a room, not booking it. If you go to a restaurant and "request" a steak and are then given chicken you would not be happy.

Also, hope you get a room at the back as we had a room at the front of the hotel and the traffic was very noisy.

Dear GKC1985:

First of all sorry if your stay at our Hotel was not as confortable as you wished, by the other hand on our web site we have double (as seen in pictures twin our doble beded) or individual rooms, doble basic rooms and junior suites and rooms with added values as Parking included or romantic packages, also as a comment our costumers can explain some special request and we do all the best from us to reach it, in your particular reservation, we did not recieve a request double bed so we were not able to know that. More over I will take on care your comments about our website and look for improvements.
Once you arrive to the hotel and you need a double bed insted a twin we can prepare the beds together with a imperial dressing wich offers you a king size beded room that we understand it is a good value, I'm sorry if it was not enought for you but was the most suitable option then.

Best regards.

This Hotel was recommended by our AAA travel agent. We reviewed this Hotel on several web sites. There were many comments on how small and cramped the rooms were. As other Hotels were much more expensive and we were only going to be here for one night, we decided it would be fine. Well not sure why the negative comments. They gave the 4 of us a glass of Champagne when we walked in. Everyone was very friendly. The rooms were just beautiful and spacious . King size bed and large closet. Big bathroom with big walk in shower. We also had large sliding door to a semi enclosed patio with a large table and chairs. The best part was the next morning. The breakfast was terrific. It was like a full scale restaurant, and the food was great. If we go back to Barcelona we will stay here.

I went to run the marathon and this hotel had a great central location.

Easy flights from Liverpool, sensible arrival times and easy access to everywhere.

We had 2 rooms - my friends had a large twin which was bright and airy. Mine was a single which whilst small was perfectly functional and gave me the pre race relaxation space I needed! (with UK TV :) )

There was no evening food in the hotel but over the road was an excellent little patisserie type of place which served food in the rear part - set menus - salad pasta and a drink for not many euros which did the trick perfectly. Breakfast was excellent however and served in house.

Ours was a whistle stop visit and we didn't realise how close we were to the main centre until we came on the hotel whilst wandering. (Go left out of the door not right!).

Hotel was pretty good - I sent my daughter to another H10 for a week all in Tenerife based on this stay.

Room Tip: My window looked into a tiny shaft! But it was a single - well small double really. My friends'...
