A gem!”

Location, comfort, cleanliness

Our stay was very pleasant. We had a nice, quiet, comfortable room. The staff is very helpful. Great location - walking distance to Sagrada Familia. Note that street-facing rooms will have some traffic noise, so request a room in back if you prefer quiet. Fragrance-sensitive travelers can ask for rooms to be cleaned with scent-free products. They were happy to do this for us. Also, the windows are openable. (But be aware that Barcelona is a perfume-heavy city). We highly recommend this hotel and plan to return.

I would strongly recommend this hotel for shoppers in Barcelona due to it's prime location (next to metro and main shopping stretch). The hotel staff is helpful and flexible in terms of allowing early check-in (my flight landed at 8 am)etc. Value for money.

A nice hotel with a convenient location”

Location, cleanliness of the hotel

the actual hotel is a decent hotel stay at with nice interior decor. the hotel itself was very clean and we were quite impressed with the cleanliness of the room we were given. the room's balcony had a nice view of the surrounding streets too which was pleasant to look at. however, we found the room small for a couple with 2 suitcases and 2 carry-on bags. the hotel's location was convenient with a city tour bus stop just around the corner from the hotel. this made it very convenient for us to see the many different sites and attractions of the city. many shops such as chanel and lv were just around the corner from the hotel too which would make shoppers happy. we didn't eat at the hotel so i rated the hotel's food/dining 3 out of 5. we were happy with our stay at the actual hotel.

Brilliant Location”

Great location close to all bus routes and train routes. Two iconic Barcelona sites just down the road. The hotel was clean, friendly staff, air con, free safe and lifts. My only grumble was don't bother with a room with a view. We paid extra and looked out onto a side of a modern hotel block. But there are no views. No parks or open spaces near this hotel. Just get a standard room. Plenty big enough and go for a high floor as it's on a major road.

The hotel is well positioned with the metro station on your door step, the accommodation was clean and the beds were comfy the staff were very polite and helpful and there is a bag service so you can travel around Barcelona on your last day without carrying your bags. The breakfast was nice and plentiful. All in all worth the money we paid and would use again.

Stylish hotel in great area”

Beautiful room, easy access to airport, metro and sights
No supermarket/mini mart close by

The hotel has clean, fresh and stylish rooms. It is located in a great area, with easy access to the airport (4 stations with the train and a few minutes walk). Metro station located just around the corner. Walking distance to Casa Mila and Casa Battlo, whic hare located on a nice and posh shopping street.Just a few metro stations or a 20 min walk to Las Ramblas, old town etc. An environment that felt safe at night. The only thing I missed was a mini mart where we could buy water etc. It was good then that the snacks and drinks in the room had surprisingly reasonable prices.

Okay nothing special”

Location, front desk staff

This hotel was kind of bland. For a lot less we stayed our first night the hotel Praktik which was so cute and modern, and just lovely. They didn't have a room for our second night so we switched to Actual which cost a bit more. And it was just so boring, the room was really small, and it lacked the charm of Praktik. But with that said, the location was great and the front desk staff was really helpful. It was a clean and functional hotel, and even though the price was a lot in my opinion for what you got, I would recommend it if you can't find something cheaper.

Affordable room in a high end area”

The hotel is located in a high end shopping area and it is easily accessible by train. From airport, take the Renfe train from T2 and you can get off at Passeig de Gracia without changing train. It takes about 15 mins walk from there. The closest metro station is Diagonal, which is only about 5 minutes walk as it is just around the corner. The hotel room has a nice setting and I got a room at the back with no view, which is fine by me since I requested a quiet room. It's easy to go around given the location near the metro station. I think I might return to this hotel. There's one staff who was particularly helpful to me on the day I checked out. He helped me with my luggage and told the taxi driver of my destination. I really appreciate his genuineness.

Great Location”

We came into Hotel about 9:00 AM and they held our luggage for us while we went to get on the Hop On/Hop Off Bus just a couple of blocks away on Gracia. We walked back from Sagrada Familia which took us about 25 minutes and they had already taken our bags up to our room. Nice little Continental Breakfast with fruits, meats, cheeses, yogurt, nuts, breads, and pastries. Tea and coffee available. Saw several folks with Lattes, but not sure if they had to pay for them or not. When we left the next morning, the staff carried our luggage to the Taxi area down the street. Overall a great location and great stay.

You're right at the corner of all the action. We had a nice sitting area and small balcony. If noise bothers you you do hear the rumble of the subway. They did a good job of sealing out street noise.
