Good location hotel with only few steps from the underground train station (diagonal). The hotel design itself is good, reasonable price, but the mattress quality is so so. You can conveniently travel to many attractions in Barcelona with the underground trains. The staffs are very helpful. I's definitely enjoy my stay in Barcelona.

The location is excellent, but I knew when I was took this hotel. But reality is even more surprizing considering the quality of the hotel and the staff.

Excellent raport price/location/quality for business/pleasure trips.

Amazing location and very comfortable rooms with a lovely decoration. Very friendly and helpful staff. Anything that we asked was provided within minutes. Breakfast is an excellent choice of nice Mediterranean food. Definitively good value for money. I still cannot believe that it is rated as a 3 stars hotel! I will come back.

We stayed in a junior suite which was a lovely room,well decorated and very clean, but not a suite in the normal sense of the word(i.e. more than one room). It was on the first floor and there was some traffic noise - not a problem if you are used to city life but probably annoying if you are used to peace and quiet. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful when asked but didn't volunteer anything. We did not have breakfast but enjoyed a free cup of tea one afternoon. Lovely for me and my 12 year old - conveniently located near the metro - but probably less good for much younger children.

This was a great option for the best city in Europe, Great location, helpfull staff, clean rooms. Rooms are modern and clean, not overstated. If you want to a place near the best shopping and restaurants, Actual is the place, if you are looking for luxury and ammenities. this is not the place. Look into upgrading to a suite for a little bit more. Still is my place to stay in BCN hands down

Room Tip: No swimming pool or gym at this hotel, try to upgrade to a suite.

This hotel is well-located, stylish and comfortable. Rooms are small, but well-equipped, comfortable and clean. Decent breakfast available on-site, or a selection of bakeries just steps away. All this at a reasonable price!
