“Good District with nice rooms! ”
Reviewed 20 April 2014 via mobile

Close to metro station and center. Can reach by walking to La Rambla and enjoy Barcelona. Rooms are nice and comfortable. A little noisy inside but you will enjoy for business visits. Breakfast should be improved.

This hotel was comfortable and clean. A little outdated but for the price who really cares. Rooftop spa was a nice addition and there are two. Staff were all very friendly. It was a bit out of the 'centre' like the name implies and you need a bus to get to the centre of Barcelona. Overall, I probably would find a better located hotel.

Reasonably good hotel in the right location 3 blocks away from carrer de Garcia and not too far from the hustle and bustle of the other main attractions.
The pay-per-view channels were unavailable, slow internet connections and the single bed in our room was squeaky. That said the staff were amazing and very attentive to customers' needs.

Stayed here for a long weekend Friday - Sunday(March 2014). The staff were very friendly & very helpful. The location was great 2 minutes to La Rambles five minutes to the Metro. Highly recommend it. We had a king size room that was great spacious clean and quiet. Although the Air Con didn't work that well. Staying in this hotel made our stay in Barcelona even better than we imagined.

Room Tip: Request King size they are huge.

I had to book this hotel at the last minute for an unexpected and last minute trip MWC and so paid the 400%+ mark up that all Barcelona hotels seem to demand during that week. I was lucky to get a room at all, according to people in the know.

I had probably the last available room, in the corner looking over the back of the nearby apartment buildings, which meant looking at other people's washing hanging out to dry and the room got very little sunlight.

That said, at the normal rate available for this hotel I think it would be a very nice choice. The hotel staff are very kind, very helpful, and speak fluent English. I needed to make a photocopy of my passport and got a high quality color one without even asking - I asked for directions to the nearest Kinko equivalent, and the desk person just volunteered to use the copying machine in the back. Nice! The staff also helped me catch a cab every morning, which given the heightened risk of crime during MWC, was reassuring.

The wooden floors, good furniture, very nice bed and bedding all are big pluses, as is the huge bathroom. The safe is enormous (it fit an ipad, a full sized laptop and important documents with room to spare) so that was a great plus. They only provide a partial set of complimentary toileries to start, so be sure to ask for conditioner at the front if you need it.

Breakfast on Sunday was barely edible, sad to say, but during the week was quite good.

Not all cab drivers know about this hotel, so be sure to carry the address with you.

It was a relief to come back to this hotel and its dignified interiors after the craziness of MWC.

I had to stay in this hotel for family reasons, however i live in Barcelona. This hotel is just excellent for tourist! They have central location, very friendly staff. The restaurant is excellent, the Chef, Pisti showed us his magic kitchen tool: a Pacojet Nb3! As i am cook as well, it was amazing to see, how Pisti is creating his world class-dishes. Well done for all of you!

We stayed for a weekend in the hotel,
the staff is absolutely lovely, room was great, no noise of the street thanks to the doubleglazing. Had dinner in the hotel 1 night which was great too.
Unfortunately the sauna was broken during the weekend we were there and the jacuzzi too cold to enjoy in February but overall a good hotel to stay if you want explore central Barcelona.

Room Tip: 5th floor was good, although the double glazing blocks out most of the traffic noise anyway
