Perfect base for exploring Barcelona
Very happy to recommend this hotel. Can only fault the view from our window (straight into the bedroom opposite!) but we really weren't that bothered. Everything else was excellent!

Short break in Barca
Spent four nights at this hotel. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Hotel and room were nicely laid out and very clean. Our room was on a particularly noisy side of hotel overlooking the main entrance, where the street is quite narrow and and noise does seem to be amplified and we did leave our windows open on the first night. We kept them closed, using the air con on a low setting for the remainder of our stay and all was well and good nights sleep were enjoyed on the large comfortable bed.

Location excellent. Staff average. Over priced
Location. Restaurants in immediate are. Public transport access (+ has small pool)
Average start after long flight. Staff were not particularly helpful. Rooms are quite small and dated. Bathrooms not completely clean. It's certainly not a cheap hotel in Barcelona. However, locations is great. 10mins from everywhere. Loads of great restaurants in the area. Good shops also. Breakfast wasn't included in our stay, but plenty of local bakeries nearby to fill that gap. Roof top pool is nice to have, but only 4 sun beds and pool is small. Nice to unwind though at the end of the day. Get this place cheap - it's a good deal!

A pleasant stay
1. Staff very helpful. 2. Location excellent. 3. WiFi good in my room.
I did not choose the breakfast so can't comment on the food. It was offered for €16 when i booked and was then dropped to €10 when i registered. Too much money when you can walk out and get breakfast for much less. Generally a very good experience with the hotel situated near the metro and busses that take one straight to the beach in 20mins. The pool on the roof, though small, is a good place to relax after a long day. The staff, jacobo, estephania, deborah, Julia and maria jose were very helpful. They need to put coffee and tea in the rooms. The 4star hotel i stayed at in seville had that.
