The most comfortable hotel bed in ages. Location is ok during the day however, late at night it can be a little sketchy. It was a little pricey, however considering it was peak season compared to other similar properties it fares well.

Awesome hotel!
We had an amazing stay! When we first arrived, the area in which the hotel was located was a little intimidating, but we grew to really love it and enjoy that area! The hotel staff, specially Jr could not do enough for us! They were all amazing! Room was perfect for our family of four. Loved having the kitchen so we could do breakfast ourselves and snacks. Would totally stay there again!

Great Spot!
This blew our expectations away. The pictures don't do it justice. Family trip with 3 teenage boys - their room had three beds, and we had no complaints from them, they thought this was the best hotel of our 2 week trip. Great location in the gothic quarter, with a little square behind the hotel to have a beer in the courtyard. Close to Los Ramblas within minutes, and close to many of the other attractions in Barcelona. The pool on the roof is small, but to be honest, it was just perfect to relax for a quick break in all the walking we did.

Great Boutique Hotel.
Charming boutique hotel, modern but with a. classic, vintage feel. with warm and capable staff. the rooftop pool was wonderful. the room was elegant and generous in size by European standards. This hotel is not loaded with amenities, but it is a special place where we felt very much at home during our stay.
