            We stayed during christmas. Hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona. Very clean rooms. Don't take the taxi from hotel to the airport. Find the taxi from la rambla street. There r lot of taxi. Otherwise u pay 15 - 20 euros more to taxi when the hotel find for u.

            Don't take the taxi provided by the hotel staff. They overcharged.

            the location is good. the room design is good expect some excessive steps in the room which are trap hazard.

            the front check in staff shortage created a long wait. Staff knowledge about the restaurant and activity around it is poor.
