We asked where to eat and got recommended two amazing restaurants. I stay away alot with buisness so now take hotels for granted, not this one! Would rate it 5 out of 5 for everything. The breakfast is definitely worth...

Ideally located between the Gothic Quarter and Las Ramblas with a tube station approx 2 mins away. The beach is approx 10-15 mins walk away. Modern and chic hotel with impeccable decor. Clean and tidy rooms with blackout blinds and very effective double glazing - could not hear the road. Fantastic roof top pool although was too overcast to try....

To recommend mainly for it's situation in the middle of de "old city". Personnel is more than kind and helpful,but decoration, service and noise are limit for a supposed five star hotel.If there are smoking guest, access t the terrasse should be granted at all times or a smokers space provided.

The hotel has a great location, plus a wonderful view from the rooftop. Stuff was very friendly. It is very close to nice restaurant and bars. The metro is just down the street. The Gothic Quarter it's across the hotel - it is a pleasure to walk on those streets.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
