Bad experience. Though very well located at a reasonable price and clean, it all comes with a cost. The Pillows were horrible. It was like resting your head on a brick. Really bad. If you want to have a terrible sleep. stay here, you won't forget the experience. Also there is no air conditioning in the room during these months...

I was a bit worried after reading some reviews about this hotel, but we really had no problem. Yes it can be a bit noisy, but it's in a busy area, so there is obviously going to be some road noise. If people want a peaceful hotel, maybe don't book in a busy area. The staff were friendly enough. The...

I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. If you book your stay on Booking.com you will be treated like a number - period. We booked a room through the website and got the dates wrong. We were charged $232 for this mistake and the hotel maintained a "take no prisoners" attitude about it. So, instead of getting our $585...

This hotel is near major sites and close to the Metro. Room in the back with a view of the air shaft was small but quiet. No air conditioning this time of year which is a major drawback for us as we like to be cold when we sleep. As another reviewer mentioned the amenities like soap and shampoo were...

We stayed 3 nights in a double room which were really comfortable and spacious. You'll get plenty of space, nice interior, fast wi-fi and perfect location. Breakfast was okay, you can ask for a glass of cava with it as well ;-) Tip: come to the breakfast either in the beginning or in the end of breakfast hours - in...

We brought our infant here and the crib they provided was fantastic, the hotel is clean, friendly helpful staff, comfy bedding, great shower with good water pressure, decent size, they allow pets which is awesome and the location is grand! Can't get any better. We loved our stay here.

The Hotel was in an amazing location with easy walking distance to all the sites we wanted to see. We didn't really spend a lot of time at the hotel so not fair to comment on staff. The rooms were nice if a little hot of a night time. House keeping didn't change our glass's in the room from Thursday...

I am not one to give bad reviews, however, I was disappointed with this hotel. I understand it may be policy in some hotels in Europe to limit the AC in the rooms during winter; but, when the result is a hot, steamy, and uncomfortable room, then it's just unacceptable. I had to sleep with all the windows open in...
