4nights stay. Good location, 5mins less walk to Jaume metro. A stroll away to gothic, la rambla, el born & port. Restaurants and mini market nearby.
Room was slightly stuffy, musty smell but problem solved with open windows. Comfy pillows and bathroom ok. Cosy double room. No kettle in room but tea provided at lobby. Just the musty smell of the room and lobby was a slight discomfort. Hopefully hotel could fix this

Size of room, location, quality of room
Excellent - just two things let it down. 1.) No mattress protector on the bed! Not sure about anyone else but I don't fancy having just a thin sheet to separate me from a mattress that 100's of other people have slept on. 2) We had to leave for the airport early so checked out the night prior. Unfortunately the staff member failed to charge us for our last nights City Tax which meant we were delayed the next morning anyway because rather than just hand our room card back, we had to sort out another payment.

Even in the winter it's a fun vacation
The staff was very helpful, you can't get better location than this, transportation to and from the hotel is easy.
Great hotel, great staff and the best location in the city.

perfect location, basic but clean and comfortable
location, cleanliness, modern rooms
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone. Great location, very close to attractions and restaurants. The staff seemed a bit confused but that was because they were using a temporary front desk during renovations. Room was close to the street so a bit noisy but didn't keep us awake.

good, but some expensive.
It was not bad, but some expensive. There were not coffe, an electric kettle, tea.
It was clean, staff were relatively kind.

The location is simply perfect for a city holiday. One minute to the restaurants and alleys in El Born and a 20 minute walk to the beach.
Despite the perfect location and the 4 stars that this hotel claims we wouldn't recommend it. It gives you a bed and a bathroom but that's pretty much it.
Some of the hotel staff were very helpful with guiding and so on.
The air conditioning in our room didn't work apart from it being an expensive and loud fan.
The electrical outlets were mostly functioning, but sometimes lamps flashed when unplugging for instance a cell phone charger and in the bathroom some of the protecting plastic around the outlet was gone...
The bathroom was probably very nice back in the 90s when it probably last was renovated, but now water taps and so on were replaced and various pipes were plugged here and there and it all was a real mess from what looked like emergency repairs and quick fixes.
Bad luck: Two mornings we woke up accompanied by workers using pneumatic drills right outside the window. Can't blaim the hotel for that though.

Great hotel! amazing service!
Great location, friendly service
Great location with lots of great restaurants around. Must try Senyor Parellada and Bilbao Berria. Both really great restaurants accross the road.
The actual hotel room is a bit small though but not too bad

Very central location, good service
Close to central points as beach, shopping, restaurants, market or pubs (to watch Euro 2012)
I have been surprised about the lack of breakfast. I know I have booked this hotel with a 15% reduction, but frankly I do not think it is correct to propose it at this price without a breakfast.
Or a hotel promotes itself with attractive rates, but keeps all services included therein, or it does not promote at all.
Personally, I would frankly prefer to pay 15% more and have a breakfast rather than to have this surprise once in the place.

Great location, friendly staff!
Internet, central location, helpfulness of staff
I really enjoyed my stay! The staff was very friendly and helpful - from arrival to departure. They gave me a great room, with a view of the cathedral, and were always willing to help me: be it with information, printing documents, etc.
What's great about the location of the hotel (for tourists) is the fact that you are one block away from one of the official stops for the city tour busses. You are also walking distance from the beach front with its restaurants. VERY convenient!

Centrally located, and across from subway line
Centrally located, across fro subway line. Hotel was under renovation at the time I booked, but was not too noisy. No complaints, except that the Room was tiny. I mean, really small, about 8ftby8ft... dont know if all the rooms are like this
