“Excellent hotel located in the Gothic Quarter”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

Excellent hotel located in the Gothic Quarter, very near the main attractions of this district. Also close to the Ramblas and Parc de la Ciutadella.

The room has a good size and it is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is excellent.

The breakfast at the hotel is excellent, but is not included in the room rate.

It has free wi-fi and mineral water, in a cooler outside the room, in the hallway.

The staff are courteous and helpful.

This hotel is located on a pedestrian street so there's no traffic noise. It's busy with tourist traffic so there is the occasional street noise late at night - but overall - tranquilo. It has a very contemporary, modern, spare look - very comfortable with a great bathroom.

Biggest plus for us: the terrace upstairs which has a little splash pool - you can't do laps but it's lovely to sit around while you're resting your feet for the next outing.
The thing we did not like: absence of drawer space. Seems like they could have ordered furniture with some better storage.

The front desk was always congenial and helpful.

Can't really fault this hotel. It was clean, modern and the staff were extremely helpful - especially those on reception. Even when we had a problem with our first room they quickly resolved it and then gave us the biggest room in the hotel. One of the nicest features was having free chilled bottle water available on every floor - that's a really nice touch! Also liked the roof terrace area. Would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking to stay in the Gothic area of Barcelona - right in the heart of it. Perfect!

Room Tip: Ask for room 512 as it's the biggest and has a separate lounge area. The only slight downside is...

A very clean and modern hotel in a good location, within walking distance of museums, shopping and eating districts and parks, and convenient to the metro. Staff were courteous and helpful.

My husband, 14 months old baby and myself stayed for 3 nights in this fantastic hotel. The location is just perfect: sights and lots of restaurants nearby, the harbour and more restaurants as well as Plaza Catalunya -10 minutes away walking distance.
The decoration is very modern, but simple, so very pleasant. The room (307) was very spacious and more than enough playroom for our little boy. It faced the street (Carrer Princesa) and it was very quiet (the double glazing of the doors is very effective). It was just a little bit too hot in the room and it seemed that we were not able to control it from the room.
The receptionists were all very efficient and gave us all the information requested (good restaurants, how to get to places and also helped with booking the taxi to the airport).
Fantastic coffee at breakfast (freshly ground coffee – how rare is that!!!!) and the buffet was also very abundant (eggs, bacon, muesli, fresh fruit, great yogurt, cakes, etc….).
Nice and original touch: free water bottles in the hallway! Would certainly come back and recommend to all!

Room Tip: Even the rooms facing Carrer Princes are quiet
