    Great location, fantastic breakfast and comfortable bed. Small downside: room /bath floor Wasn’t cleaned during the 4 night stay.
    Stefan, us4 night trip
    Exceptional 10.0
    Amazing !
    Stayed from the 12th January 2020 to the 15th January 2020, hotel staff were friendly, approachable and very pleasant, hotel facilities where great however would be better if the pool was heated, however it had been drained on the last day of our stay for maintenance so maybe it was just broke, definitely not going to complain about it though. We hired cycle bikes to get around the city which the staff allowed us to park in the underground car park over night. The stay was for my birthday and after my girlfriend asked if they could do anything special for it, we had a cake and bottle of Cava delivered to our room in the evening with the hotel staff singing happy birthday for only €15. Breakfast offers a wide selection of food to be eaten from hot cooked food to cold continental options. I could not fault the hotel or the staff, everything was amazing, Thank you for a wonderful birthday and stay, will definitely be visiting again soon

    Very Good 8.0
    Ok . Needs some improvement.
    Advantage- breakfast (although expensive compared to other hotels) . Clean . Disadvantage- location (far from main Street and from stops of tourist buses). Service at front desk ( not really willing to help ).

    Poor 2.0
    Not impressed
    Not a very good experience for us.the receptionist lied to our faces and told us us that we couldn't get the upgrade we was entitled to as a gold member advantage, because there was no availability as the hotel was fully booked. The problem was that there was clearly availability as we could basically choose any roomtype from the app. It was evident that the hotel was half empty. When that's said the room was ok, but the sink was leaking and the desk was old, and so was the television. I think four stars is too much for this hotel and the location was just okay nothing more.

    Nice stay..
    Very friendly and helping front desk staff..breakfast was a bit over prized but otherwise a great place to stay and value for money!

    Choose this hotel
    We would recommend this hotel when in Barcelona. It's an easy walk to everything (remember, everything is up or down hill). The room that we had was uniquely laid out compared to what we are used to but of no consequence. Huge bathroom!

    Loved this hotel!
    My husband and I loved our stay here! It was clean, comfortable, modern and located near many outdoor restaurants where we enjoyed fantastic tapas and wine. We were located where we could walk to many places and felt safe. We enjoyed the staff who went out of their way to be helpful.
