“Can't beat the location!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We stayed at this quaint hotel last summer and we were not disappointed. In a city like Barcelona, that is so large, your hotel's location is very important. This hotel is located right on Plaza Catalunya, in the city center. We upgraded to a larger room, as we were traveling with our teenage daughter, and the room had ample space for all of us to be comfortable. We also had a great view onto the Plaza. Our rate included the buffet breakfast served in the lobby restaurant, which had plenty of hot items as well as pastries, cereal and juices. The room was very clean and comfortable, we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Select one of the larger rooms/suites and request a view onto the plaza if possibile.

Having been to Barcelona a number of times before, we were aware of the central location for this hotel. However, actually staying so central was a godsend.
The hotel was clean, safe and professional.
The upkeep was 1st class
A very good stay thank you

Room Tip: city side (our mistake) was not facing the square

For a last minute, springtime trip this hotel was ideal - the location was superb (although if I went during summer months I'd like to be closer to the beach) and the hotel was clean and reasonably priced. There are a few things to keep in mind
1) hotel staff seem to only suggest dining experiences based on their existing collaborations with local restaurants, rather than actual patron request
2) the rooms are small and bathroom area is merged with room entrance and closet which isn't very closed off to the bedroom area, so make sure you know your travel companion very well

Overall it was a good experience at a very adequate boutique hotel.

A modern property in the best location in the city. It features an intimate shady patio for drinks and the staff is very efficient and pleasant. Recommended for couples, business travelers. Our room was clean and quiet and the rainforest shower head was a plus.

We booked a standard room but decided to double upgrade to a balcony room over looking Catalunya Plaza. Breakfast was excellent and also the restaurant for dinner. Ice had to be retrieved from the bar with a bowl. Somewhat behind the hotel and a 5 minute walk is most of the tourist attractions of Barcelona. The metro is almost outside the front door and Grayline is only 2 blocks away.

Room Tip: Room 907 had the bath tub in the room but the view of Catalunya Plaza compensated for the tubs locat...

We booked this hotel because of it's location , right on Plaza Catalunia. The hotel is modern designed , some people can like it we didn't , there were no clothes lockers only few drawers and open rack , not enough for 3 persons. The shower and WC we're not comfortable too .
The beds are fine . Breakfast was rather good .
But the most weird thing happened on the second day , someone , I guess from the housekeeping stuff , instead of cleaning the room , entered the room , just arranged our shoes in different way ,switched off my PC , did no more cleaning ,setting beds , taking a trash away or changing towels , finally put DO NOT Disturb sign on outer side of the door ( to prevent other stuff of entering the room, I guess)
WEIRED and disappointing to get such service in not cheap 4 stars hotel !!!!!

I can't say anything bad about this hotel. The staff are lovely, the hotel is in the best location, the rooms are spacious with king beds (very unlike European standards), it's clean and they have electric blinds so you have the best sleep. Our room 312 didn't have a view but it was so quiet so we had a relaxing stay
