Nice and handy hotel. Just a few steps from a metro station. Easy walk to La Ramblas. Lots of restaurants and shops around. Have stayed there many times and sometimes feel it's a bit expensive depending on the season though.

Needs renovation
This is a four star hotel when looking at things like breakfast, rooftop bar, gym etc. unfortunately the interior hasn't been worked on for a long time and weird smell inside my room tells me that ventilation is taking its last breath
