“Very pleasant stay.”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Good, modern and very clean hotel. Maids in daily and doing a great thorough job. Love the wooden flooring, nice walking about barefoot. Fab veranda on the top floor that has a handy bar with tasty red wine (3.50) however watch out for the overpriced beer, considering how cheap it is to buy in the city i thought that 4.50 euros each was WAY overpriced. 2 minutes away from metro but other than the shopping centre just outside theres not much to do in he area. Also some staff were very helpful but some very very very slow. My partner ordered a coffee and waited for about 15 to 20 minutes for it but it never came. Dissapointing! Service is one thing they need to look at. Nice local cafe/bar right to the right of the hotel as you are leaving. Would stay again.

Room Tip: Middle floor. Low street noise.

We stayed for 5 nights in a triple room with our teenager daughter. All beds comfy and full length, room big enough for the extra bed. We had a balcony so great for drying flannels althougg not a view you would like to stare out at. Great room, very helpful staff especially David on reception. Only opened last November so all fixtures and fittings still new looking. Restaurant staff very friendly slong with the Maids. The Metro is very close so make sure you buy a T10 ticket which is great value. All transport systems easy to use especially as we are used to the Tube in London. Not a city centre hitel but we would stay again as Barcelona is so easy yo get around.

We stayed here for the night before our cruise. The hotel was super accommodating and had our room ready when we arrived (at 10 am in the morning). This was AWESOME after a transatlantic flight and no sleep with two toddlers. Its location was a little out of the way and not super close to some of the top sites, but still a great pre cruise hotel. There are many playgrounds around the area so very family friendly.

The hotel was perfect for my girlfriend and I as we were on a city break looking to relax in an area that was close to the city but not in the hustle and bustle. The hotel itself was worth the money as it was located across the road from a very large shopping mall with a Carrefour to purchase and items needed. We didn't order any food from the hotel restaurant as it was overpriced (sandwich cost 10 euro compared to 2.50 in Carrefour)

Transport to and from the hotel was ideal. Bus service and metro ran regular services next to the shopping mall taking you directly to placa de catalunya(the start of Las Rambles) I would recommend getting the T10 card available in the metro station as it will save you money. 10.30 euro for 10 journeys of 2.15 for individual journeys.

The pool on the roof was small but ideal for an hour or two. The sun loungers were limited in number so get there early if you want one,

One thing to note is check in is after 3pm. We arrived at 11am and was told we would have to wait. The hotel did present us with a free bottle of Cava once we settled into our room to apologies for the wait.

This hotel is brand new and really good. You get a really good hotel for desent money but of course need to take the Metro or Taxi to the city center (about 15 € for taxi or 1 € with Metro if you buy a T10 card). We personally prefer to stay in a really good hotel and have a few km to the city instead of opposite. The hotel also have a pool on the roof with a good bar (well priced). We stayed for 5 nights in 3 rooms and were very happy. The last night it was raining and we stayed in the hotel restaurant for dinner. That was also a great positive experience. Great food (see photos) and great coffee and cognac (Carlos I). The only negative thing we can say about this hotel is the check in and the slow but free WiFi. We were 7 people and it took 30 minutes to check in. They wanted to scan all passportes etc. Better if they have asked us to keep the passports and give them back next day. But in general great staff members who always tried there best and we were very happy with the stay. We definitly will stay here again when we go to Barcelona but we are of course aware of that it is 3-4 km to the city. Thanks from Lars Lagerkvist and famillies staying 24-29 July 2014.

Room Tip: Really good hotel but be prepared to take Taxi or Metro to the city center.

Many warned us we were not in the city center but personally I found it quieter and not so far away. Average taxi was around €12. Prices online were excellent, and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever found in a hotel. It had a pool and was 2 minutes from a great shopping mall and food court.

On the negative side the restaurant choice was limited.

Room Tip: The higher up you are, the better the view

On our arrival to the hotel, we were greeted fairly quickly. The staff were friendly and spoke very good English. We were in our room within 5 mins, which is always a good sign of an efficient receptionist. The first impressions of the room, we're very good. The TV is modern, the bathroom is very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The city views from the 7th floor were also a nice addition. Oh and the air conditioning was pretty good, if not a tiny bit too loud. But that's not really a massive issue. The room could of had slightly more storage for clothes, however we did manage to fit enough for two adults and a very over packed girlfriend. The TV should have been unlocked to alter the settings of the audio so we could hear the English streams. However with some little googling, you'll soon find how to "bypass" the lock. It was also good to have a safe in the room. The room was cleaned very well, everyday, no matter what time you left the hotel. The maids were always smiley

Breakfast: It was okay... It's what you expect from a European country with a few added extras such as bacon and eggs. Food quality was okay, however nothing special. Price is a little high for what it is (10e ahead)

Roof pool: Very nice after a hot day. However you'll have to get there quickly to reserve one of the 22 loungers. It's an intimate space, but very lovely. The view is incredible, however they should find a way to clean the side guards round the pool. Has a nice little bar as well.

WiFi all though the hotel, good speeds and not limited at all.

The location was away from the central area of Barcelona, however the public transport is amazing and we had no problem getting anywhere at anytime and cheaply. Don't waste your money on the taxis when the buses and trains run SO frequently. It took roughly 5mins to get to Espanya where all the L3 metro sits. From there you can get to La Rambla in 10-15mins and the beach in 15-20mins (including walking).
