“Good for the airport”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We stayed for 1 night as we arrived late at night at BCN and were renting a car the next day. The shuttle bus arrived the the right of terminal 2, we were lucky we got the final 2 spaces on the bus. The hotel is around 10 minutes drive from terminal 2. The hotel is in a retail outlet sandwiched between a Leroy Merlin and another large supermarket. The check-in process was efficient. The room itself was adequate, however it was in a poor state of repair with dirt markings on the walls and curtains. The bathroom however was beautiful. Unfortunately we did not have the time to avail of the spa facilities. We did not eat in the hotel and had Mc Donalds for breakfast which is 30 meters from the door. You have to book the shuttle bus back to the airport which we did, it was great because it was like getting a free taxi as only we were on it.

Overall good for the airport but not much more.

The reason why we choose this Hotel was.
1. Proximity to the Airpot
2. Shuttle services to City
3. Pickup and Drop to the Airport.
4. Cost

The hotel is in situated right in the middle of the commercial malls which makes it convenient to find. Good and spacious rooms but the decor is age old. The hotel reception is very busy and the lady at the reception were to slow to answer and process guests which is annoying as you have to wait for 15-20 mins for all your queries.

Have stayed in a number of BCN airport hotels and wanted a change of neighborhood for fun. This place was easy to find as the commercial center is a great landmark. The shuttle and the wifi are essentials for me. Shuttle was excellent. The room as clean, comfortable, spacious, great shower. Staff was always excellent and accommodating. There is a pool, gym and several restaurants within easy walking distance.

On the other hand, the wifi was not acceptable in my room- slow and sporadic. It was fine at the reception area. The elevator uses a code before it will move, Maybe a security measure, but there was zero security at the stairways, so I don't see the point. The reception staff were always quite busy with lines of clients, at least when I wanted to speak to one of them. The constant 5 to 10 minute wait to ask a simple question was annoying.

The stay was good and I would recommend the hotel but the wifi can be a problem if you are needing to do any work.

Good hotel with a great shuttle to airport. Unfortunately located in a commercial parking lot, but it is really better than it looks.Strange codes needed for elevators can be confusing.
Nice room except for clear glass door to bathroom!! My wife solved that by hanging the bedspread over it. Food was surprisingly good and reasonable...breakfast and dinner. Great salad bar.
TIP: write the address down in full and hand to driver ...we had no problem but they do not seem very familiar with it.

Flew to girona and picked up a hire car. Was looking for cheap base to stay and as this was one of the hotels that had free parking and good reviews was a good choice.
Found it easily with tom tom granted and was happy with location.
Although not in the centre we used shuttle in the evening and taxi back about 20e which we felt reasonable. We didn't try local transport although we did see a bus stop near.
Parking and local area is basically a retail Park so if you want doorstep entertainment this wouldn't be for you. For us the the pluses were free parking, beach less than 10 minutes in car and centre accessible easily.
The hotel for the price exceeded our expectations for a base. Internet wifo wasnt great but a minor when in a great city. All in all 5/5 based on price , cleanliness, location, helpfulness of staff. Cannot comment on spa/swimming facilities as didn't use

Good stay in this hotel. Located around 10 mins from the airport terminal 2, free transfer, Around 25 mins into the city itself with plenty of times available costing 1 euro per person each way which is amazing, Breakfast was a help yourself buffet with all options hot and cold, Swimming pool was great and so was the gym, just a bit too hot for me, Room was spacious, only downside was the music played untill late at night just outside our room, Great place to stay tho

The good: convenient to the airport, free shuttles, desk staff was friendly. Shopping mall and some fast-food right next door. Food at the hotel restaurant was good, although not particularly cheap.

The bad:
Hard beds. Really uncomfortable.
Curtains where wholly inadequate for the amount of light coming from the car park right outside.
Thermostat couldn't be switched to cool.
Rooms not well insulated from noise from hallway.
Serious temperature regulation issues in the shower. Good thing it was large enough that I could dodge out of the way when the water turned scalding or freezing.
Bathroom door was glass with the hotel logo on it and frosted stripes - so there were portions that were completely transparent. Ok for couples or solo, but probably not so much for friends.
