  • Good location nearby metrostation and near the port. Overall a very enjoyable stay and a nice cafe across the street for breakfast at e6.5. The beach is in easy walking distance too and staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms more than adequate, loved the laminate flooring.

    Bars in the immediate area and passeig de Gracia available by subway. Noisy hotel and very poor amenities in the bathroom. The recommendations for outside restaurants were a little disappointing.
