I stayed there for just four days in August - very convenient location, helpful and fast staff, nice rooms and pool- perfect combination. There are fruit shops and an organic products store just across the street. Lovely experience! Thanks!

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night prior to our flight back to Australia. The front & lobby looked really nice. Opened the door to the room, so small, stuffy & had a musty smell. Bed hard as a rock, pillows terrible. Could hear the people in the next room, talking, the toilet flushing! The bathroom was a good size, getting into the bath to have a shower was a mission, don't know how an older person would manage, bath was patched. No plug for the hand basin. No shampoo only shower gel. The best part was the breakfast, very nice, but would not stay there again.

This is a no frills hotel but represents excellent value. The room was spacious and very clean as was the bathroom. Wifi was excellent and the only complaint I have is the beds/mattress were harder than concrete which made sleeping difficult as a middle age traveller. Staff were very friendly, location very central and the rooftop pool was a real treat after a hot day of sightseeing.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. The location, cleanliness and the rooftop pool is all great not to mention the wifi that was excellent top notch except for two times they needed to restart it. Staff was also very helpful printing out tickets but at the same time they also promised to check the smell and drainage problem in our room which they didnt.

Doors out to the corridor lets through sound like there were no door at all. So if youre a light sleeper you will be woken early morningbs and late nights from partypeople and early tourists.

Some small quirky stuff from the staff, when you report a problem you dont want to get an answer that is "We dont know about that"... and then you have to argue for your cause. That drops the rating from me.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the busy street and away from the elevator. Both due to sounds from the st...

We have just returned from a three night stay at this hotel and we loved everything about it. I had emailed the hotel before we visited and asked for directions from the aerobus and I requested a room with a balcony. I got a very prompt reply from Marc with detailed directions from the bus and we got a lovely room on the 5th floor with a balcony. It was a little bit noisy with traffic noise but this didn't stop us sleeping really well. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring Barcrlona and we walked everywhere, to La Rambla, the fountains, the beach. The pool area was clean and towels were provided. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment on that. We would recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Arrived early morning about 10.30 am and all seemed okay I asked if it was possible if our room could be ready a little earlier as we had not slept due to travel sorry check in at 2pm but we will try and get earlier room for you so we went out for a drink got back about 1pm room not ready other people now waiting and all of a sudden 3 x rooms became ready at the same time at 10 to two?? just rules I think or just bloody minded never saw the bar open 1 x chair in bedroom also only one bedside cabinet and a zero view and the worse bed I have ever been in I did ask if they had a computer I could use as I wanted to look for a better hotel but put up with it for 2 days as it was part of a cruise deal staff seemed nice but not a 4 star having been in 100s of hotels I would give it 2 star or very low 3 star

Room Tip: Cant help only go elsewhere.

Stayed there for four nights with breakfast included.
No problems found, nice facilities, free wifi (very good indeed!), awesome breakfast and nice pool.
It's a nice place to stay, very close to the Plaça de la Universitat (two subway lines there).
Worth the price..
