We choose this hotel because we really like the area, we love Born!! Anyway, the hotel itself is very nice, nothing fancy but we are not fancy people then it was perfect! Clean , the staff was very welcoming and our room was very modern designed and comfortable! We will stay there again when in Barcelona!

Really well located for exploring the old town and in fact the whole city, as you have a couple of different metro lines within a short walk.

Hotel is very convenient and is in a good location. Staff,including cleaning people, were wonderful and very helpful. My concern and I have seen it in other reviews is the steps from the bed area to the toilet area. You enter the room on one level, and wash area and toilet are on a different level.

I loved this hotel. It's quirky, spacious, grand but somehow intimate. The staff went above and beyondfor the guests, their service was one of the best I've had. I loved the public areas, you can help yourself to amazing coffee, bottled water, and they even have a vending machine If you fancy a bottle or champagne or wine.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more   less
