Super location and stunning hotel
Huge bed, great sized room in a convenient location
Our 3 night stay was amazing, which this hotel Largely contributed to that. Huge and extremely comfortable bed in a larger than standard sized room. Beatifully presented room which was cleaned each day to perfection. Friendly and helpful staff Whom were there to assist in ensuring your stay there was memorable. Stunning reception area welcomes you on your arrival. A beautiful spa area for additional R&R. Well located with easy access to the airport shuttle bus. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again, without any hesitation.

It was a good stay
The terrace , closeness to the places most popular for tourists , its clean and tidy .
the hotel was very clean and the rooms were well prepared it has all you need for a few nights stay. The lobby bar is close and on your way to your room . The terrace was clean lovely to relax in with a bar and a pool its nice to have a drink in before going out. The balcony in the 1 bedroom was quit small but not bad. the king bed split was comfortable tea and coffee was well hidden and organized. Its worth a stay for a few nights. For family or couples.

Enjoyable stay with caveat
Location, facilities, and restaurants
I enjoyed the stay except for two things. First, we were trying to deal with both directing my staff back at the office for ongoing projects and dealing with an emerging family emergencey at home. Having to input a 16 word username and an 11 word password every time you needed to use a device, as the Internet kicked you out if you stopped using for a few minutes, was infuriating. Simplify your system. Less easy to fix are the hardwood floors in the suites and hallways that carried noise floor-to-floor. I suggest sleeping with ear plugs and a sufficient nightcap. 😉

it's ok but don't expect too much ....
Location, comfort,
there were two bad points which I think can be improved: 1. the check - in and check out: every time a big cue of people and only 2 counters in action! 2. the pool bar: you have to fight to be served, even there were no other guests and the wine was warm and of inadequate quality.

Bad experience
Nothing worth just the location. Expensive but nothing provided. Staff are not friendly and helpful at all. Won't recommend!

Comfortable and Friendly staffs
close to city center, with easy access to public transport and places of interest
I had a very nice and spacious room with good sound proof. The hotel is also very close to many of the shopping areas, public transport & Aerobus access, and restaurants. It is also not too far from the La Rambla walking street which you could see many stores (souveniers,food, tourist info) along the streets.

It was a good stay and it served its purpose. I like the design of the rooms. I appreciated the high speed internet, even if I had to sign in after every hour.
