        The room was clean. It is quite close to a metro station (about 1 km), so it is easy to commute around the city from the hotel.

        The breakfast (buffet) is not good enough for its price. The bed was to small for a double bed, the size was like for a bigger single bed.

        • Average rating

        open space at the backyard allows a lot of light in the room; Great breakfast buffet. Spacious bathroom for Barcelona hotels.

        Only wall-mounted showerhead (no handshower), which would be perfectly fine, if the bathtub would not been with the sloping end unter the shower.

      • Older travelers

        Large bedrooms, good bed,and shower

        The advertised "free wi-fi internet" worked great on the first day we arrived, then it never worked for the 5 days we stayed there. All my complaints were dealt by the reception with a "go stay somewhere else" atitude.and lies about "too many people online", which they insisted was true even at 3 in the morning!!! The elevator blocked us several times and the whole place felt as a "was great now going decrepit place". During the weekend only the bellboy was at the reception. Got some internet after screaming and they produced a cable to connect to an internet socket on the room wall. Overall is far from any metro/subway/bus itineraries, and should be avoided by those without a car. Room prices vary everiday. Some up some down:unpredictably.

        The room is clean but it's very very noisy, we can hear the noise from both side like opening their door and flushing their toilets. Did not sleep much. Not going to book this hotel again.

        Very nice, clean hotel, definitely in the high-class part of Barcelona (not far from the Diagonal).

        Very far walk to the Metro train, which can easily take you to see the famous sites of Barcelona.

        Staff was standing on their toes ready to help with anything. They went above and beyond. I got upgraded to the suite which was really nice.

        My netbook didn't fit into the safe. The metro and buses are very easy to use and get around even though the hotel is not in the center of town

        A nice hotel. 5/10 minutes from nearest Metro. 10/15 minutes from Camp Nou. Friengly staff. Nice rooms.

        Wi-fi didn't work properly which caused me problems. Cable internet connection didn't work at all.

        The staff was helpful with directions on how to get to the attractions.

        The location was somewhat far from the attractions, the room was very hot as they had turned off the air conditoning.

      • Group of friends

        Friendly and helpful staff; good breakfast selection (was included in the price of our room); location of the hotel is very close to the shopping area on Diagonal

        Rooms, walls, and windows are not soundproof; beds are uncomfortable
