I had a junior suite with twin beds which were way to close together so when my friend arrived with a heavy... More

We stayed for six nights in a junior suite. The suite was quite comfortable and clean. The front desk staff was very friendly and excellent about directing us to restaurants that were hospitable and good. The hotel is a good walk to the metro, but the walk is pleasant.

Great for exploring Barcelona, lovely place, clean and nothing to much trouble for the staff. The only thing I I didn't like was that the shower was on show in bedroom but that's just a personal preference.

The hotel is clean and staff are friendly however it is not exactly in the best part of town. Next door to the hotel are "night clubs" that let's just say are like what "foot spas" are in some places. Also, the cafes next door are not friendly to Americans, who give a lot of tourist business to Barcelona.
