We stayed here for two days using Visa points. The location is perfect. Just across the road from the beach where you can walk miles in either direction along very pristine, clean beaches. The room was large and well appointed. The staff was reasonably helpful but there were significant differences in the English abilities -- from fluent to barely passable....

We stayed at this hotel for three nights while in Barcelona. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive and also speak English well for those that need that. Though it is not "city center", it is directly across from the water and it is easy to get anywhere from it. The rooms are very nice and clean as is the rest...

Lovely hotel - we upgraded our room to sea view for another 20euro per night, which was very good value. It's located some distance from the centre, however the 41 bus stops almost outside and the green tourist bus stops a little further along to the right from the hotel. The tourist bus is well worth paying for as the...

If someone sees this hotel just as a hotel, I don't think that he could find something bad to say about it. Clean, nice breakfast, clean rooms, great view, helpful and kind staff. For me and my friends who are young, staying at this hotel was no problem. For older people the distance from the centre could be a problem....

Have just come back from Barcelona and love the city. The location of the hotel was not a problem for us as the 41 bus to centre was 2 minutes away and the tourist bus we chose had a stop directly opposite the hotel (we had a two day pass which allowed you to change from the orange route to...

Just got back from spending the Easter weekend in BCN. The hotel was nice, but very average. I would put it on par with a good Premier Inn, nothing 4 star apart from the price. The reception staff were unfriendly, grumpy and to be honest not very helpful. Alex & the lounge bar staff were great and extremely hard working....well...

This is a very nice hotel (which we got for free using Clubcard vouchers). If we'd been paying, we would have chosen a place nearer the city, but this hotel did have its benefits. We walked along the front down to the Olympic Village on a sunny day, which was gorgeous. We had been getting the metro into town, and...

I liked this hotel and the breakfast, even though I didn't get it included in the price. The breakfast buffet was sensational. It was 10 euros each, but it was worth it. The bed was made daily and we got clean towels daily as well. The beach view was nice as well. I wish it had a balcony, but it...
