Gem of a Choice

From the time we arrived at the hotel we were greeted with warm hellos and excellent service. Rooms and hotel are immaculately clean. Beds are comfy. Breakfast has nice variety, staff working at breakfast are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Location is convenient and feels less touristy than a few blocks down on the Ramblas but an easy walk to the attractions. Shower is wonderful. (I'm picky about showers.) Only negative about the hotel is the hair dryer. My friend and I both were frustrated with the funky appliance that didn't work well. This hotel is an excellent value and I will stay again if I return to Barcelona.

water pump is a little bit weak, but good enough

water pump is a little bit weak, but good enough for one day stay. Very close to subway, and room size is decent.

quiet and comfortable

Well positioned for easy access to the centre and Montjuic. Very clean and comfortable with good aircon, although we booked a nonsmoking room and were allocated a smoking room. Comfortable bed and good shower. VERY quiet room facing back and no noise from adjoining rooms. Maids start at 0830 so put do not disturb sign out if you're not ready to leave before that. Very close to universitat airport bus stop.

Great location

The hotel is located within walking distance to attractions within Barcelona. There really isn't a bar or restaurant but there are several just down the street. My room was small but sufficient for my needs. It was very clean. There is a bit of hallway noise but the price was perfect.

Big rooms, considering...

When in Rome, judge like the Romans. Okay so the balcony led to some back alley apartments. But hey, this is downtown Barcelona and this is an action packed city. The rooms where large compared to European standards and the view was what you would expect in a world class city at at 3+ hotel. Don't expect to check in early. Apparently the check-in time is a serious matter and it isn't waived easily. Comenearly, sleep in the minature lobby for your over-sized room to be ready. Amazingly all the rooms became available simultaneously at 2:00 pm and we were allowed into our room; not a minute to early. The metro is not far from the hotel and the square is just a half a block away. I ordered a single queen bed. There was noon so I was given a room with two full beds that you could combine and make one big bed. But don't get too excited. The beds didn't really connect well and it made it difficult trying to score on my date. Did I mention that the sofa turns into a bed? The hotel is really proud of this addition. I'd go back and so should you....

No Complaints!

Staff was Awesome! interacted with approximately 10 of them, all VERY nice! Helpful! Pleasant! AMONG THE BEST! The only (possible) (negative?) statement I could make is they "appear" strict with check in time; however, you can still check your bag and venture out! IE required amenities - i was REQUIRED to choose so i did, middle of the road...I dont know :)

IF THE PRICE IS GOOD...

AS SINGLE TRAVELER GOT THE 501 ROOM, VERY VERY SMALL, NO AIR CONDITION Window facing the patio and front hall, as well as the walls in the corridors, the additional patio floor hall are glass .... You can not sleep in a bed without curtains drawn unless you want everyone to see you sleeping in the bed ... Even air will not go into that window, and inquiry at reception- air-conditioning is not working ... so don't take the single room, Certainly not if you claustrophobics or you have asthma But I heard that double rooms are better.

Ideal for a city break stay

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel with a friend (previously in 2011) and it has once again been brilliant. If you're coming in from El Prat the Aerobus stops literally two minutes away and the location of the hotel in general is ideal. The staff are friendly & pleasant, it's good value for money and the room was clean, tidy and comfortable. The only thing that could improve the room for me was perhaps the provision of a kettle and some tea bags/coffee sachets but in reality this isn't a necessity. I'd definitely recommend it - stay here!
