Alison S. Families with older children United Kingdom, August 5, 2015
Great staff and great location

Location to city was great. Staff very helpful and really friendly. Loved the pool and bar on the roof with excellent views across the city
An excellent stay. Our son loved the pool and spent time in it every day. The drinks by the pool and the bar are on the sun deck were very reasonably priced and we also made use of the small gym. Views from the roof were spectacular. We felt breakfast was expensive and disappointing for the price although there weren't many places nearby to get a good breakfast. Overall we would stay there again.

Comfortable and nice hotel with great location
Great location, comfortable and clean. The three bed room we had is spacious and our kids loved the pool. I'd stay again when I go back to Barcelona next time.

Nice modern hotel with good location

Location (beside train station), deco, cleanliness
We had a great stay at the hotel. The location is great, 4 min walk to Parallel train station and 10 min walk to Las Ramblas. The room was clean and tidy, and the amenities were good. The front desk staff were helpful. They even offered bid strong umbrellas free of charge (there is a refundable deposit) when it was raining one day. We stayed for 3 nights and had a pleasant stay.

Great stay

Well appointed room, location, helpful staff
Hotel deserving of it's 4* rating. Very helpful staff, large spotlessly clean rooms and ideal location from which to explore this city. Had a few days here en route back to southern Spain from the UK to go to a couple of concerts and visit friends. Metro is practically outside though it is not too far to walk to most of the central attractions. Would definitely book again.
