Appearances can be deceiving
Beyond the great location and clean building, the stay was a disappointment. Room was not cleaned as requested, facilities were very basic and staff were at times very short.

Great little hotel!
Loved the rooftop terrace, great views and the best frozen daiquiris. All staff were good. Pool is small, but gave it a nice friendly atmosphere with everyone sitting around in the pool drinking cocktails. Not a place for children. Ramblas is a 10 minute walk.

Excellent hotel.
I think my stars say it all really . Never stayed in a hotel where the staff have been so friendly ! The rooms are of a very high standard absolutely spotless . Lots of choice for breakfast . The rooftop bar and pool is a must . A great place to go after a hard days sightseeing !! Metro station is literally on the doorstep. This hotel is in an excellent location . Would definitely recommend .,

Hotel Review
Great hotel with a convenient location - walking distance to many tourist sites and restaurants/cafes, with the metro right in front of the hotel. Clean rooms and bathrooms, would stay here again.
