“VERY GOOD”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Hotel: in my opinion,it'S A 4 STAR. At arriving, it isn't atractive from the outside, it seems you are entering an office building if you compare it to the beautiful historical buildings around. The lobby is quite simple, with no ostentation. However, the rooms are very nice, a bit small, and the bathroom is excellent. My room had a street view, and I had breakfast included in the rate. Breakfast is excellent and complete, with eggs,pastry, fruits, cheeses and cold meats, including famous spanish ham, and cava, an spanish white wine. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Location: The hotel is 10 minutes walk to Plaza Catalunya, 3 blocks away from Passei de Gracia. in my opinion, perfect.
Some Tips:
Places to eat:La Rita, Ca La Nuri for typical spanish seafood, Cerveceria Catalana and Ciudad Condal for tapas, last 2 places be patient, at least 30 minutes wait in central hours, unless you show up too late or too early. Another good thing is to take the touristic bus, hop on hop off bus, it's en excellent way to get to know the city, which is really beautiful. Don't miss Park Guell, las Ramblas, Monumento a Colon, La Barceloneta; Paseo de Gracia with historical Gaudi buildings Casa Batllo and La Pedrera, the beautiful Barrio Gotico, Sagrada Familia Church, and the colorful Mercado de la Boqueria.

This is a modern hotel with nice rooms equipped with a large bathroom(bath+showerlots of mirrors, hairdryer), flat screen TV and safe . The window of the room opens (room 612). Small minibar with space to put your own stuff.
Free wifi in the room and 2 pc's to use in the lobby.
There's also an outdoor pool. Continental breakfast is very good.
Staff is multilingual, friendly and helpfull. No problems for late check in or keeping the luggage when checking out.
One of the best hotels i stayed at in Barcelona.

Only one negative remark: we had roomservice. They we're in such a hurry that the meat wasn't baked enough, the food was very good.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back. Very calm and a nice view

We have had a sale conference for 3 days, 30 people at the hotel. Meeting rooms and possibility to use the nice back yard and pool area for recreation during the breaks were great.

Breakfast and lunch very delicate and highly appreciated by all.

Location great for shopping and walks in the old town.

This hotel isn't directly on a metro stop, but it is only a few blocks away. A very short 2-3 minute walk and you are on Line 1 or Line 3 which will take you virtually anywhere in Barcelona via their great metro service.

Our room had a walk out deck that connect you to the pool. It was great to have this little space to relax outside, yet so near your room.

The room was tight, but comfortable and clean. The shower was probably the big "Problem" I would complain about. The shower drains VERY, VERY slow. Do NOT put the water on full blast or you will swamp the bathroom floor in a matter of a few minutes. We talked to other guests of the hotel and they had the same problem.

The other thing they should work on are the THIN walls. you could hear every footstep, metro, elevator and people talking between floors and rooms.

Nice welcome from the staff, private car park. The location was perfect just a short walk from Passeig de Gracia and Plaza Catalunya. The rooms were clean and nice, the superior room was good maybe just a little bit small for a superior in a 4* hotel but the terrace was definitely a good addition especially with the nice weather that we had. We stayed in this hotel two nights, the hotel offered us a bottle of Cava in our room on the first evening and the buffet for the breakfast was very diversified. But noisy room on the third floor (we had two rooms on different floors) you could hear your neighbours talking and showering, you could also feel the tube...I find it a shame to provide bathrobes and slippers only for the superior room and not for the comfort one. Finally, the towels in the bathroom were clean but not top quality at least not what you expect from a 4* (especially when you pay 185 euros for a night). I know all these things are details and although they didn't ruin my weekend at all, those details usually make the difference between a very good 4* hotel and an average one...

Hotel was nicely situated within walking distance from subway and attractions. Staff is friendly and the hotel is clean, breakfast has good variaty and it was fresh.

What we did not like, was the thin walls. You could hear almost everything from next door and from the corridor. You could hear and feel the subway going, which was not very nice. We would not stay in this hotel again, due to very little sleep.
