This is an excellent hotel. Highly recommend staying here while in Barcelona. The staff was incredibly helpful and accomadating allowing us to receive our room earlier than normal and giving tips throughout the trip. The room was great and the stay was very comfortable with great access to Barcelona.

Great joint
Great place and great location (close to subway). While not central to the sights it’s proximity to transport nullifies it’s distance.

I liked the modern room decent size king bed with ample storage and sitting writing space. very nice shower. The pool and workout facilities on the roof with a view were great. Nice big area to hang out at not sure but I think you can get food bar service delivered up there. I did not like the bar itself. Yes I can get a drink, but the area is not set up as a regular bar. The bartender had no place to make drinks and had to go in another room to pour my beer. I like a traditional bar set up with glass ware hanging beer taps out front and a designated area to make drinks. I want to sit at the bar talk with the bartender and have a normal bar setting. Only thing I did not like service great and rooms quiet and modern great wifi throughout hotel

Close enough to downtown to walk to the Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals. Far enough from downtown to have less traffic.

Exceptional 10.0
Very pleased with our stay, especially after spending the week prior in a bad hotel. The staff was so helpful and friendly. The rooms were perfectly clean with all the right features (lots of outlets, switches by the beds that let you turn on all the lights on and off, useful toiletries, eco products...). Really enjoyed this hotel!
