“Be near of everything but on a quiet street”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Very nice and modern hotel where employee will receive you with a big smile. They speak English but also French. The look of interior is a away better than the exterior. Bedroom was very clean, modern, zen with few special elements of deco. Beds are very comfortable. Washroom very functional, clean and with a very nice personnel toiletries. Very near of the Cathedral and the Rambla and the 2 city tours. We didn't try the restaurant.

Stayed prior to our cruise out of Barcelona. Great location for exploring the city. Small, but nicely appointed rooms. Front desk staff was extremely helpful in our attempt to secure tickets for some of Barcelona's sites that we were not able to obtain online prior to our trip. Even walked us to the ticket machines across the street. Nice bakery/coffee shop next door for breakfast. Clean and quiet. Would stay again. After a long day of sightseeing, enjoyed sitting in the plaza around the corner of the hotel watching Barcelona go by.

Great location! Very helpful, efficient and friendly staff who give excellent service. Full breakfast. is included which has a very comprehensive choice. Standard rooms/bathrooms are of a reasonable size, clean and functional. Only complaint is lack of seating - one very small chair (very uncomfortable) and two low stools at the end of the bed. If you want to come back to the hotel to relax after a days sightseeing there is nowhere in the bedroom to sit. Overall a very good experience other than that one issue.

Great location approximately 100 meters from the old Cathedral in the Gothic quarter. Fantastic atmosphere wandering around the streets behind the Cathedral at night and dispite the usual warnings relating to picck pockets in any big city had no issues whatsoever.

Situated half way between the newer shopping area (placa Catalunya) and the narrow streets and square of the old town in the La Rambla area.

How about a morning sight seeing around Barcelona (open top bus trips do either a West or East circuit) - back to the hotel for a swim in the pool and dry off by the pool-side on a sun lounger - and then in the evening try a few hours in the Placa Reial to unwind, take in the atmosphere with a few drinks and dinner.

There is a public underground car park 300 meters from the hotel in the Cathedral square.
Appreciate that the pool is only small but cetainly hits the spot.

The port is a walk of around 10 - 15 minutes .

The staff on reception were super friendly and helpful.

Will use this hotel for my next trip to Barcelona - you really need a week to take in the city.

Located by the Cathedral and the old part of town this is an excellent base for wandering around the alleys and shops. The Ramblas is only a short walk away with its own attractions. Close to the hotel are several good restaurants and tapas bars which make excellent places to stop for a drink or meal.
The hotel is modern with a patio area where one can relax away from the bustle of the town outside. The rooms are well maintained and reasonably sized (but we would have appreciated more than one chair in a double room). Breakfast was exceptional and a limited but very good menu is available for lunch but no evening service.
A character of the hotel was the universally pleasant and helpful staff throughout.
We would certainly stay here again when in Barcelona.

If you are after a good clean hotel in the Barri Gotic area then this hotel fits the bill.Our room (214) was spacious,well appointed with a very comfortable bed.Breakfast was included in our deal and was ok - the coffee wasn't the best however. There are some really great bars and restaurants near by and the whole area was really vibrant. The Hotel is situated only 5 minutes walk away from Placa De Catalunya where the Aerobus terminal is located.Easy to explore other areas from the location with the Ramblas,El Born and Port area close by.There was so much to see and do that we had no time to use the swimming pool!

Room Tip: Room 214 faced the front of the hotel - not too much noise from the street below

This hotel has everything I look for in a hotel. Lets start with location. It maybe 100 feet from the plaza in front of the Barcelona cathedral. It is a short walk from the Plaza Catalunya. The aerobus from the Barcelona international airport (BCN) is only 6 euros (35 minutes from BCN to Pl. Catalunya) and a short walk to the hotel. Buses run every five minutes.

The hotel is only a couple blocks from the Ramblas (a big attraction). It is located mid-way between stops on two lines of the Barcelona metro. The Barcelona metro is clean, safe, easy to use, etc. Close by Metro stops makes much of Barcelona so easy to visit.

The rooms are great--large, clean, airy, well-lighted. The free wi-fi worked, the bathroom was nicely appointed appointed with big towels. The bed seemed larger than any I had ever slept in.

The only negative is the hotel does not have a restaurant that serves dinner. Of course, I would not eat in a hotel unless the only other restaurant in town was named Eats. (I have eaten in a place named Eats but that is another story.) Maybe a lifetime of business travel has left me jaded but hotels are for sleeping. Restaurants should stand or fall on their food. In any case, you need not fear going hungry in the center of Barcelona...your only problem will be choosing from so many places. The Born district with all of its restaurants is only a 10-minute walk.

We had lunch in the market located next to the Ramblas. The market is worth a visit as you stroll down the Ramblas...if your timing works have lunch at a market restaurant. Stretch your taste buds...I had anchovies on country bread as an appetizer.

The hotel offers a free walking tour of the cathedral area on Wednesday nights...if your visit includes a Wednesday night stay, plan a late dinner after the tour.
