          Great location

          Located in the business area of Barcelona and slightly quiet at night. 3 min's walk from Glories metro station. Big shopping complex just opposite to the hotel with supermarket, restaurants and shops. Tour bus station just opposite the road. Very helpful reception staff (Martha) to provide local travel and eatery tips. Cooridor lighting looks dark maybe due to it's a design hotel.

          There is a hop on hop off tour bus that run right in front of the hotel. Very nice decor. There is an open top bar and pool on the roof top, offering a good view to the city. My only complaint is that the music on the roof top bar is too loud too late for us to sleep, but if you stay on a lower floor or enjoy the late night bar scene then you might enjoy it.

          We loved this hotel, everything was perfect, from the cleanliness, to the attentiveness of the staff all the way down to the spectacular view of the Sagrada Familia outside of our bedroom window. The rooftop pool in the summer was the icing on the cake, sipping an Aperol Spritz while gazing at 360 views of Barcelona was unimaginable. One thing that we expectionally loved was the option to use the hotels bikes for 4 hours for free! Me and my friend both agreed we would 100% stay here again.

          Everything is spotless and the staff are ultra friendly and helpful. Arrived early and were able to check in straight away with no problems. Good location and only minutes on foot from Glories metro station. The shopping centre directly opposite has a great range of places to eat all at great prices. We didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on this. The one thing I would say is that the drink prices in the hotel are expensive 21 euro for a glass of wine and a cocktail. Room tip: Ask for a room on the 6th floor or above as the views are amazing.

          The hotel was great but we stayed in level 4 and it was facing the east side so the view was not nice. The place was a bit noisy on Friday night as there is a bar downstairs. The reconstruction at the back was a bit noisy too if you're there during weekdays. Kettle was not provided for certain type of room and slippers too were not provided unlike many hotels in asian countries. Then the bathroom was not fully enclosed. I will come again as a couple but not if i come with my parents or children

          awesome terrace, next to Torre Agbar, close to metro

          We had a great stay. Staff were very friendly - absolutely no complaints. However, probably the biggest issue at the hotel was the internet connection - very very slow, even the McDonalds across the street had faster connection. This should be fixed as soon as possible - I couldn't even send pictures via email to my friends. If the internet connection worked as it should I would give the hotel 9/10 but I have to go with 8/10. I recommend this hotel. You won't be dissapointed if you book your stay here. Torre Agbar is stunning at night and you'll be just few meters next to it.

          Great Location , Nice Modern Hotel ”

          Helpful and Attentive Staff

          Very nice hotel with a nearby metro station that need 3 mins walk , only 3-4 station to Catalyuna Main. Lovely staff at the hotel, will almost help you with anything. But the free wifi speed is awfully slow for any business work. Its better to pay 7 euros for paid wifi with blazing speed

          Great modern, stylish hotel. ”

          Design, Location

          First of all the design of the hotel was very nice, just as nice as it looked in the photo's which isnt always the case. The only downside was the size of the pool on the roof terrace, if it was bigger we might have used it. The location was slightly out of town but we liked that as it was still a busy area with a shopping centre opposite. Also there was a metro station and tram stop in close vicinity (5 mins walk)which got you into town within 5 mins.
