The hotel is located 3-5 minutes walk from University Pl and 8-10 min walk from Katalunia square. It is on a side street so it is quite quiet. Metro is 2 min walk- so the location is very good.
The hotel looks like it was recently renovated. Very nice contemporary art deco style. Very clean. The beds are among the best I had in hotels- nice firm matress. Rooms are small but it is common in hotels located at the center of big towns all over Europe and America.
WiFi is free in the room as well as public areas. Breakfast is complimentary- variety of cheese, breakfast meats, yogurts, scrambled eggs with bacon and freshly prepared capucino. Excellent! Very close is a superb bakery!!!
The rooms staff leave the room very nicely cleaned and organized. The front desk staff is knowledgable and willing to help although it will be done without a shadow of compassion - you feel like you disturb them.
All together we had a great say and would recommend it warmly.
