I stayed at the Novotel with my teenage boys for the first time and would never stay at another again. If I could give this hotel zero stars I would based on service. While coming back from our day outing my teenage son told me that blood was on the pillow, I reported it to the front desk the next...

My family enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location was great. We were in walking distance from the hop on and off tram. Even though we were not actually in Barcelona, we were not far away. The "family suite" was small but comfortable. If you are looking for luxury, this is not the place. The people working there were...

The Hotel is deteriorating, rooms, dining area, etc. needs an upgrade. I have been staying here over the last few years. Close proximity to the motorway, deal for early meetings out of town. Helpful staff. Free wifi.
