“Thanks to the very helpful staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

We had been recommended this hotel as part of our Airmiles / Avios booking and having done so twice before were happy to take their steer. Again, we have left very happy with our experience although we did wonder at first. On arrival the smell in the room from the bathroom was awful and got worse. Then, after the hot water was not running, we spoke with the front desk, The willingness of the staff to sort our problems cannot be faulted. Within a short period the water problem had been resolved and we had been moved to a new larger room without problem. We couldn't have asked for better service.
I would say that if you take the time to read reviews on this site and take them as a broad average then that is pretty much what you get. For us we found the place to be clean, the rooms are large and well equiped and a strong wifi signal exists throughout. The staff, as said, are very helpful and have a good command of English. The lack of tea / coffee in the room was a minor irritant and one that they could easily resolve if desired. The lockers for storing bags on your final day is a nice touch.
There is much talk on the site about location. Yes it is near the local funeral home and supporting businesses that surround it. That said, as you are rarely there we did not find this an issue. You are a short walk from the metro / tram stops and 10 min walk from Familia Sagrada and the Citidelia park so that was great. There isnt much around the hotel so you will need to ventrue out in the evening but the place felt safe. We had no experience of the noise some reviews refer to although being a very cold Feb this might be why. The neighbouring Melon Cafe is bob on for breakfast or a quick snack.
All in all we left happy travellers and would stay again.

A great hotel for a family of four. It had fine spacious rooms. Only fault - ig had a kitchen but had no utensils which really meant it wasn't of much use to use i.e. no cups! We had requested a kettle which we got but no cups were there. Staff were lovely.
There was fine wifi. Near the metro. Clean and comfortable.

We spent two nights at this hotel prior to a cruise. This was a great hotel. The room was very large and very clean. The same goes for the bathroom. We had a " matrimonial" bed (by request) and it was large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and spoke adequate english. We needed a van to take 8 of us to the cruise terminal and they set it up for a very reasonable rate. It was also about a 20 minute walk to the marina and numerous restaurants and a 25 minute walk to the Las Ramblas area and other sights. we felt safe where ever we walked. However, if you turn right out of the hotel the area isn't so good. The hotel offers special discount tickets to the double decker tour buses which is the only way to see Barcelona. You can get on and off as much as you want and change to the other line/route (there are 2 ). The breakfast at the hotel is good but a little pricey however there is a little cafe on the corner which is very good and reasonable. We would stay there again without a doubt.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the east side of the hotel. There is a walkway on the other side where people wal...

Small, clean confortable hotel. Only about a mile walk to the sea. Free wifi was a plus. Hotel breakfast (14 euros) was adequate.

The hotel is conveniently located - close to Sagrada Familia. In fact, if you are lucky, you might be able to see the massive structure from your room! If you like walking, it is a nice comfortable walk to the church - took us about 20m. Our room was nice and big with a separate sitting area. The staff at the hotel were very efficient and didnt take us long to check in or out. We were pleasantly surprised when they did not ask us to wait - the check in time was sometime after 1pm and we had arrived around 11am! most hotels, we were told, would not allow early check in so it was nice as we had had a long flight.

There is a tram and metro stop just 5mins away from the hotel so that makes moving around in Barcelona very easy. Getting to La Ramblas or Barri Gotic would take about 15m by metro. I would recommend buying a 1 or 2 day travel pass as it allows you unlimited travel on all public transport - including trams, buses & the metro. We didnt take the Barcelona Card as we were told that most museums were closed on the day we reached and hence it would be a waste.

Overall, it was a pleasant stay and we enjoyed Barcelona, despite the November rains!
