This was our third stay, and I can't think of a better location in Barcelona. Make sure to pay extra for the cathedral view - it's well worth it and you also get a small balcony facing the square and the cathedral. The hotel is currently being refurbished, and the rooms that aren't done yet do need it. Still, they...

We traveled to Barcelona in December just before the Christmas holiday and stayed at this hotel.The hotel itself met all of our expectations. It was very well located with various attractions all within walking distance. It had an amazing view of cathedral. In addition to that, the subway is right around the corner for those trips a bit further away....

My stay was beyond exceptional Jan 8-12 2017. The front desk staff was amazingly cordial, friendly and always helpful. For many travelers this can be the difference between a "nice" experience and a "great" experience. I have visited Europe many times for both business and pleasure. The choice of hotels are always a chance you take and hope for the...

I highly recommend staying here -you can't go wrong staying here. The location is fabulous - what a treat to walk out the front door every day and see the cathedral and be able to walk to everything. the rooftop views are breathtaking and it's amazing to sit up there and have a drink and look at the city lights...

The staff and location were great. The hotel is old and it shows. Only 1st floor renovated but all floors need improvement desperately. The breakfast was also very limited in options and quality compared to other experiences we had in Spain.
