Stayed here during a long weekend in Barcelona in July 2012. What a find this place is! The hotel looks and feels pretty new and is located just off Plaza de Espanya in the city. This is a short walk from Montuyic and only a few metro stops from the Barri Gothic with all its bars and restaurants.
On check in we were upgraded to a ‘deluxe room’ for free. From looking at the floor plan this appears to be one of the larger rooms as it’s built on a corner. Personally I loved everything about the room and the way it was styled. Large comfortable queen bed, free standing TV and floor to ceiling wrap around windows. The bathroom is a little odd, being part of the same room partitioned off rather than an entirely separate room. The bath/shower has glass on one side of it that looks out onto the rest of the bedroom so if you don’t intimately know the person you’re sharing with when you arrive then you will do by the end of your stay! Having said that there are electric blinds built into the glass that can be closed if need be.
The roof of the hotel has a great rooftop bar area and small infinity pool where you can relax and chill out after a day spent exploring. This was probably my favourite part of the hotel. Not even the fact that the people on the roof terrace of the converted bull ring/shopping centre on the other side of the street can see you put me off.
We did encounter one surly male bartender when we were up there, but apart from him every other staff member at the hotel was polite, friendly and happy to help.
One note of caution for light sleepers; Plaza de Espanya is a busy traffic island and I think all the rooms in the hotel face it so there is a fair amount of traffic noise night and day. The windows do screen a lot of it out but it’s definitely there if that’s the sort of thing that bothers you.
All in all this was a brilliant hotel for us and we definitely felt it deserved higher than 3 stars. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Barcelona and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
