  • 8.0.Very Good

    Good stay in Barcelona

    It is a small boutique hotel with perfect location next t Barcelona Cathedral. Good restaurants and shops at walking distance. It is also very close to the Barcelona Beaches. The only down was street noise in the room.

    Superb refreshing respite

    Have been to many hotels in Barcelona and this was a great combination of comfortable size and superb service at a location that was great (for me at least). Head and shoulders above most hotels I have stayed at in the city, even those that claim to be 4*+. Room was good sized and thoughtfully laid out. Hotel was quiet and consistently a pleasant place to come back to during busy workdays.
