  • 6.0.Good

    Great location, strong aroma

    Very strong cologne aroma throughout, we were unfortunately in a center room, more like a dungeon. The staff was friendly for the most part. The upside? Great location for everything touristy, food, shopping, sights etc...

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Totally lived up to expectations!

    We chose this hotel for its location and facilities. Both lived up to expectations and more. It was wonderful to find that we were on a pedestrian only street that had street performers, lovely to walk out and not have to dodge cars. Being close to the Metro , the Placa, and tourist sites and all restaurant choices was so convenient. The staff very helpful and friendly. They answered our many questions with a friendly smile. I would highly recommend this hotel to friends.

    We had a wonderful stay at this hotel in Barcelona. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the location was perfect for us. Walking distance to everything, but far enough removed to be quiet and relaxing.

    Great location, modern and grand !

    The hotel is in a great location and is really a lovely hotel combining old and new! The courtyard and pool area has also been designed well within limited space. The standard room was quite comfortable and well laid out considering it was a bit small. The bathrooms are very chic and modern, but lack a bit of privacy as the door is just a swinging door and definitely not sound proof! There was mold around the edges of the tub and near the faucet that should be better cleaned. But it is a very nice hotel that is worth staying at.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I was extremely disappointed with my experience with this hotel. I made a reservation through Expedia for a 4 day stay for my father who was coming to visit. He had issues with his flight and was unable to check in the first nite. To make sure that everything was OK, I personally went to the hotel to let them know that he will not be coming that nite and that he would be coming the next day. I also paid the tax for all 4 nites at the same time. I was assured that there will be no problem and he even got assigned a room. As he came to check in the next day, his reservation was canceled and he was reassigned to another hotel. I was told that he should be happy as it was a better hotel. However, what the staff failed to notice is that I was looking for a frictionless customer experience and really did not want a better hotel. I wanted him to have no issues checking in for the hotel that I booked. Nothing I said really made any difference to them. I was told that I can either walk away or take the option that they are giving me. Super disappointing experience and would not recommend.

  • 6.0.Good

    We arrived pretty early so we had to wait a few hours for our room to be ready. At 2:15 we were told our room still wasn’t ready. Bummer since we’ve been waiting for 5 hours. When our room was ready it was disappointing to say the least. Bathrooms have mold.. the bed side tables in the back are super dusty. If you have allergies this is not the place to be. I needed an iron and when I called the concierge— waited about an hour —- and received a dirty iron and stained my shirt. Called for another iron and was informed they didn’t have any other irons “sorry”. The bell boy was charismatic and very nice. The breakfast was also a good selection ... That’s pretty much the only positive things I have to say about this hotel. I would not recommend.
