Jessica C. Couples United Kingdom, April 16, 2015

location, amazing staff, free water / hot drinks (+soya)
easy to find main hotel for check-in from arc di triomph metro, just to the right of beautiful citadela park, zoo hotel one minute walk from there. clean and spacious room, huge double bed and lots of storage, small tv, great shower/ large bath, little sofa area by the reception area with hot drink selection, espresso machine and fridge full of water, milk and soya. easy walking distance to everywhere! and plenty of places to eat / drink very close. they serve a fair breakfast at main hotel ( buffet €9- croissant and coffee €2.50) and went to get us gluten free bread :) all the staff we met were lovely, friendly, relaxed..nothing was too much trouble. blue project raw vegan/ gluten free cafe across road was definitely not the budget accomodation we were expecting, we loved it and will return! thanks C&B! x

Basic but clean, close to town centre. traditional
I enjoyed my stay.. great location though annexed with the main building.
Olivier J. Couples France, August 10, 2013
A short stay

Location centrally locattedbut in quiet neighborhood and with a balconny to have breakfast
Short stay, but enough to get a taste of the city. The hotel was clean and well equipped. The room was large enough and no need to jump over the be to access the bathroom, like in many hotel. The room had a balcony with a small table and chairs to take a coffee in the morning. Th balcony had a view on a large avenue and the Zoological garden. It was very quiet and the staff was helpful to order taxi and give direction during our stay. I liked it.
Jacques B. Couples Canada, October 13, 2012
Great location and friendly staff.

Location, clean and secure.
The hotel is located close to many tourist attractions. It is easy to travel by bus. Although there is no restaurant in the hotel, there are many at short walking distance. The hotel provides water, coffee and tea. The room was clean, comfortable a little bit small. The mattress of the bed was a little bit soft. Shower and toilet were very adequate. We felt very safe and the staff was polite, friendly and always ready to help. The room was on Picasso side street.It was a little bit noisy but a nice breeze was always coming from the window. We can watch TV n many different languages. We had a pleasant stay.
Travel tip: Explore the area to discover the city.

this hotel is fantastic

Clean, quiet, incredibly polite, friendly, and helpful staff
My wife and I were there for one night on the first night of our honeymoon through Europe. The lady at reception knew who we were as soon as we got off the elevator and was very helpful when showing us a map of the area. When we got into our room, there was a small bottle of champaign with a letter of congratulations waiting for us. The gentleman at reception the next morning was just as helpful and friendly as we checked out and helped us print out boarding passes. Excellent hotel.
Tim B. Couples United Kingdom, September 10, 2009
No-frills, reasonable value

Location close to the City Park, beach and old quarter.
This is a room-only hotel with no bar, lounge, restaurant etc. Our room was small, wih only about 2ft of space around the bed (it had a wardrobe, but nowhere to put the luggage). The bathroom was good and felt spacious; it had a great wash basin and a good tub and shower. When we arrived there was no soap but it was a genuine mistake and the receptionist was apologetic and immediately provided soap, shampoo and gel. The fire-escape plan showed each room was a different size and ours was the smallest.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Right across from the hotel is the Natural History Museum and the City Park. In the park there is also the Zoo and the Geology Museum, but it is nice just to stroll around and to sit beside the lake watching the ducks, parakeets and the tourists learning to row the pleasure-boats!

Hôtel bien tenu

Bonne situation quand on veut allier plage et visites
Accueil très bien, très arrangeant à la réception (nous sommes arrivés tôt, mais pas de souci pour avoir la chambre car elle était déjà prête; nous voulions laisser nos bagages lors de notre dernière journée, pas de souci non plus). Nous avons apprécié leur disponibilité. Il est agréable de trouver des petites bouteilles d'eau fraiches dans le petit frigo mis à disposition par l'hôtel à l'accueil et du café. La chambre quant à elle était bien et propre rien à redire. Elle donnait sur la rue mais non bruyante. Nous ne prenions pas de petit-déjeuners, donc pas de commentaires à faire à ce sujet.

Super Aufenthalt!

Freundlich, Sauber, tolle Lage
Besser kann man sich kein Hotel in Barcelona aussuchen. Schnell bei allen Sehenswuerdigkeiten. Gemuetliches designtes Kaffee mit Reception und super freundliches Personal.
Steffen R. Couples Germany, January 3, 2013
Modernes, gerade erst renoviertes Hotel im Zentrum

Sauber, gute Dusche und Betten, Tresor, gratis Kaffee und Wasser, Fahrstuhl, freundlich
im grossen und ganzen hat uns das hotel sehr gut gefallen und wir fanden die mitarbeiter freundlich. wer aber internet nutzen muss, hat in manchen zimmern einen schlecht empfang. das ist auch das einzig negative, das uns an dem hotel aufgefallen ist. allerdings sagte die managerin, dass sie das problem lösen lassen wird. toll ist auch die lage direkt am parc de la ciutadella. von dort aus kann man alles gut erreichen.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Das Picassomuseum ist in der Nähe und viele andere Sehenswürdigkeiten.

安い 清潔 公園に近い
このホテルは建物の1階(日本式2階)にあり、外観は全くホテルっぽくないので見つけにくかったです。しかもチェックインした日が日曜だったため受付には誰もおらず、近くにある同系列のホテルまで鍵を取りに行きました。ホテルはとても清潔で部屋もキレイでした。共有スペースにコーヒーメーカーやミネラルウォーターが用意されていたのもうれしいです 。値段も手頃なのでオススメです。
