It was a return visit so we knew that the location was great.
We know this part of Spain quite well so are not just tourists.
Shopping and restaurants all around as well as tourist sites in easy striking distance.
We had a room with a terrace on the 6th floor so it was nice to get outside when you wanted. False grass was interesting but better than rough concrete I suppose.
The bed is fine but the room is so dull! Tired wall paper and no pictures. Intermittent TV reception was annoying too. They really need to refresh and update. It needed a soft chair to sit in too.
Breakfast is ok but nothing to rave about.
We might go back as it was great value at £100 for b&b not not to stay for more than a night or two. The staff were helpful though and the roof terrace is fine with a small plunge pool.
Although this hotel is excellently situated in the heart of Barcelona, the rooms are in need of updating. The pillows were so flat that extra ones had to be ordered. The beds are in need of new mattresses. During a rain the pipes make a very loud noise similar to a truck coming through the room and the water in the toilet moves, we thought it was going to explode. When showering, the floor becomes so wet that the 2 towels we were provided were needed to mop up the floor. The breakfast and the roof top bar and pool area are very good. Although we were there during the protests, we were not affected.
An easy metro ride from the main station. well priced, good service. The pool is very small. Lots of shopping and dining options nearby. Nice outdoor bar area. Easy to get to main locations and metro very close
We stayed here in the last week of August 2019 and we had a wonderful stay. The staff at the reception was really helpful and helped us plan our 3 day stay in Barca. Room was average size but very clean. Bathroom was good with all the necessities like hot and cold water, toiletries etc.
Only thing i missed was a Kettle and tea/coffee sachets in the room. For me, a 4 🌟 hotel must provide it to all its guest.
Otherwise the location is great. 5min walk to plaza catalunya. 3 min walk to major metro station. 15 min walk to la Sagrada.
They also have a small terrace bar and pool. Tired after all days travel.just go up the 8th floor and relax on their deck. 😉
Very central in Barcelona and very pleasant personnel.
Stayed here in August - 2 couples - nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. They gave us good directions for meals away from the hotel. Arranged taxi's and gave us maps and directions for venues close to the hotel.
Rooms were on good and the upstairs bar and pool - terrific.
