Stayed with two 15 year olds who just HAD to see Barca play on 8th April. Disaster struck on the day of our departure i.e 9th when flight cancelled due to French Air Traffic Control Strike. Easyjet left us in the lurch completely. The Hotel was wonderful and not only managed to arrange things so we could have an extra...

The location is terrific. The staff were pleasant. On the downside, I wouldn't say our 'deluxe' room was of 5 star standard, and the breakfast was very disappointing. (Hot food wasn't hot enough. Just not good enough for a hotel at this price.) I'd also say that the website was misleading about the pricing on the deal that we signed...

Wow! WOW WOW WOW! Amazing. The hotel was beautiful, the staff is INCREDIBLE, the rooms are beautiful. The location is outstanding. It is in within walking distance of so many wonderful attractions, close to the beach, near local shops. There is a park down the road that is phenomenal- you must go. I have been home for one day and...

Very good service, perfectly located with walking distance to everything of importance. Good food and drinks. The transport/transit service to the airport is excellent with WIFI also in the car. The menu in the adjacent restaurant is not particularly child friendly, but ok.

Overall, this was a great stay for us. The staff was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations; the room was large by European standards, and had a bit of sex appeal to it in the way of decor and design (shower). The location was close to ideal - not necessarily the exact street it is on, but the neighborhood...

This hotel was wonderful. Clean, friendly staff, great location, delicious breakfast, great roof deck. My one complaint was the room I had, which was beautiful, but window faced the main road. Even 7 floors up it was noisy all night. I would definitely go back, and just request a different room.

Dear Guest, Thank you for the great comments. We will be happy to welcome you back in a near future. All our windows are double glazed and it should not be such a noise from the street to disturb you at night. I will check the windows are properly closed we can always accommodate you in a room facing the...

A really nice hotel, the staff were very attentive, great location for getting around either by foot or public transport (including tour busses), loads of shops, restaurants etc. within walking distance. Can’t fault it really.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
