  • The location is great, just 5 minutes on foot to Las Ramblas and many of the attractions are within the walking distance. The hotel plaza is beautiful and free computer use in the lobby. Staff are very accomodating and helpful, the hot tub didnt work properly. Wireless didnt work well and we really liked the jacuzzi, and used this on a number of occasions.

    Cost was slightly high and room was basic and small.

Staff were very helpful, beds were comfortable and windows were adequate to shut out traffic noise even for a midday siesta, sauna were all very nice. Venezuelan man were very friendly and the pool was refreshing to swim in after a hot day.

  • I loved the location and clean hotel. The price was also a good one and staff were friendly. Room was nice and spacious, pool and Jacuzzi after tired day was exceptionally pleasant. The manager was great also.

    Entrances into museums/churches etc are expensive and spa services are really poor. Bathrooms are a bit outdated.

  • Shop 24 hours quiet area, taxi back from Ramblas at night approx 10€ and good choice of restaurants nearby. Very clean and comfortable hotel, surrounded by lovely buildings. Chic and at a very reasonable price, very friendly staff, the owner was very nice to us and we enjoyed eating there.

    The decor was uninviting to say the least and room was too hot. Breakfast was not great.
