I and my husband stayed at this hotel before the Mediterranean cruise in September. The location is excellent, it is in the middle of Catalunya Square and in the walking distance to major attractions. The subway station is also nearby, it is only a few stops to Sagrada Família. If you are going to a Cruise, it is two minutes walk from the airport bus stop and a short taxi ride to Cruise terminal.

Highly recommend staying at this hotel! Great customer service from the minute we stepped in. Everyone was very helpful. We got to the hotel early and they were able to accommodate us and checked us in early. Perfect location! Close to everything. Would definitely stay again in this hotel! This was our home away from home.

I booked this hotel for the location as I had spotted it during previous visits to Barcelona. I had my 83yr old dad with me and wanted to keep walking to a minimum. It totally lived up to our expectations, everything was on our doorstep, Ramblas, the park, shopping, bus tours etc. The rooms were lovely with great facilities. Breakfast was excellent with great choice and staff friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay here on next visit.

Great location. Room was tasteful and very spacious. Lovely outlook over the square. There is a lovely secluded courtyard at the rear of the hotel, perfect for a nightcap away from the bustle and noise of the city. Staff very friendly and helpful . Would stay again when back in Barcelona.

Sometimes it's nice to let someone else book a hotel and be pleasantly surprised. That's what happened here for me. I paid my accommodation fee without knowing much about the hotel and due to it's cheap room rates, I was expecting something poor, but was pleasantly surprised when it was not poor at all.

Without dount, the location of this hotel is the best you'll get in Bardelona.

Right opposite the Plaza Catalunya and right around the corner from the La Rumbla. Shopping, food, and tourist attractions are all right at your doorstep.

The hotel is modern but not poshy. It's very clean and the rooms were huge. We were lucky enough to have a room right overlooking the Catalunya fountains which was a total bonus.

The reception staff were great and the security outside the hotel at night was lovely.

Windows were 100% soundproof so didn't hear any of the bustling noises from outside.

But really, this hotel had no faults in my book.

I booked the "Plaça de Catalunya" room, excellent view and location, the bathroom setup is a bit strange, the toilet and bath are adjacent but separate, they have one sliding door, so only one of them is closed at anytime.

The Aerobus to/from the airport is across the street.
Few steps from Tour Buses, Ramlas, shopping steers, restaurants, and almost everything you will need.

Room Tip: Plaça de Catalunya view is highly recommended, specially the higher floors.

Not a lot to say about this hotel but it is a very lovely and clean hotel with nice rooms. The lay out of the room is very romantic I love the colours and the scenery was gorgeous. We did not really interact with the staff but when we did at check in and check out they were polite. The mini bar was well stocked. The location is great it's near a few retail shops such as H&M and restaurants like mc Donald's and pizza/Chinese shops and close to the subway.
