“Fantastic place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

First of all, the location is perfect - three different subway stops are an easy walk. The hotel is spotless, and very quiet considering it is steps away from the Cathedral. Everything was comfortable. The best part was the staff - they are friendly, helpful and considerate. They recommended some great places to eat. There is free wifi, but it is weak and I was unable to access some of my apps. Fortunately there are three computers downstairs for one's use. I would certainly want to stay again, and feel it was well-priced.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights in March 2012, paying €130 per night for bed & breakfast.
The hotel is down a short side-street off the large square fronting the old cathedral. It’s a great central location, easy walking distance to everything in the city centre.
Hotel staff are pleasant and helpful, all we encountered spoke good English.
There are three pcs with free internet access available to residents.
Our room was a reasonable size, comfortable and well equipped. Bathroom was clean and modern. TV had a number of English-speaking channels, of the news variety. Tea/coffee making facilities in the room are charged @ €1.50, with only two “mini-cartons” of milk provided each day. My only gripe.
Breakfast comprised a good continental buffet with hot options available from the kitchen. I wouldn’t recommend the scrambled egg, but everything else we had was good. We didn’t have any other meals in the hotel.
The nearest metro, I think, is Jaume on Via Laetiana, about a half-mile walk.
We had dinner at Café de l’Academia, Montiel and 4 Gats – all were worth a recommendation, probably in the order I’ve listed them from a food perspective, though 4 Gats would win on “atmosphere”.
This was our first stay at this particular hotel, after several trips to Barcelona over the past decade. I’d consider it good value at that price and we’d be happy to return there.
Incidentally, there’s a good, almost invisible Japanese restaurant called Shunka located almost directly behind the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a street facing room - very little traffic.

A friend and I were there for three nights in March, and overall this hotel was a total find. If you get a room facing the side street, it's really quiet, and you are steps away from the Cathedral in the old town. So it's a great spot for exploring that district. The rooftop pool is a very good size, you could certainly have a decent swim in it. The staff were all very nice and friendly, and happy to help, including with restaurant bookings and giving directions. My friend left her wrap in the lounge after she had checked out, and they found it so that I was able to pick it up...I was staying on a few extra days at the Hotel Pulitzer, which was also nice but honestly I would have been just as happy to stay here for my whole trip!

Our only complaint we had about the room was the temperature, we found it quite warm and when we asked about it were told that the manager had all the rooms set to heating because of the time of year, and only the manager could change it. They said they would ask about changing it. This was in the morning, and when we returned in the early evening nothing had been done. We had to go back and ask again to get the desk staff to ask the manager's permission to change our setting. That whole process was not satisfactory (a) why can we control the heating/air in our room ourself, and (b) why did we have to follow up to get things sorted the way we want? But it all got done in the end.

Room Tip: Facing the side street at the back, with the Vietnamese restaurant that's across the street, was...

I was really happy with this hotel, rooms were a good size, comfortable bed and bathroom was spotless with a decent shower. Location was ideal, so central! And the hotel was nice and quiet. Found the staff to be very helpful, the only complaint Id have was the wifi was patchy.

Just a week back from our weekend stay in this great hotel. 6 girls in 2 rooms for my sister's hen do.. We checked in quickly, the staff were very helpful and fantastic at recommending places to go to eat, to dance and to drink. 'Jordi' and colleagues on the front desk were happy to show us how to get round the city, ordered taxi's and gave us good directions. The hotel's location is fantastic. The rooms were large enough for 3 of us with lots of toiletries. Only problems I encountered were the on/ off wifi and the air con was not the best, but windows could be opened. Great chill out area, nice bar and lobby to get food and drinks. On our last day we were even allowed to keep one of our rooms as we had a late flight. I would definitely stay here again.
