Nice hotel

A little dated in the decor. Not as posh as it's made out to be. Good value with the discount but nothing special.

ALMOST...so that's pretty good!

Almost everything scored 'A': Room size, style, bath, cleanliness, breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, location, cost, BUT, a few basics were missing: Needs 2 comfortable lounge chairs in room,, more than 2 English channels (BBC News and another news type) on TV, an A/C that really cools the room well. Freshened carpet in high traffic areas. All in all, a nice place to stay if you don't like paying a bigger price, I suppose, but such a shame that a few details cold keep it from getting top score.

exploring Spain

We enjoyed our stay. The room was large, bathroom was large. The room was clean. We had a nice view of the city.Free wifi. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was great. We could walk to any area. The metro is on the same block. Taxi were right by the hotel. The only issue we had was the street noise at night. A lot of things were going on and I would not feel comfortable or safe going out at night in that area.

In-transit to cruise ship

The hotel is close to the cruise ship Terminal North but not close to Terminal A, B or C. There is a shuttle bus to go from Terminal North to the other 3. The receptionists were not so friendly nor helpful. Wi Fi was free but it took forever to send an email with an attachment. The carpet in the room was a bit old but the air conditioning was very good. Although we booked and asked for a non-smoking room, they gave us a smoking room initially. We were not so happy and immediately asked for a change.

3.5 star--not 4

For a 4 star hotel, I expected slightly nicer bathrooms, not rusty handles, a broken telephone, or a ghetto-ish neighborhood. Avenida paral-lel is not exactly were you want to be as a Barcelona tourist, but the accommodations were nice enough, not 4 star worthy. Also, breakfast was OK, not great for €11

No internet, understaffed. Great location.

Their mattresses are uncomfortable and their breakfast is overpriced, but that's standard for Barcelona. There weren't enough staff to handle all the guests, so we spent significant time waiting for them. That said, it's an inexpensive hotel in a nice location practically on top of the metro station. If you're used to European hotels, this is a good place to stay.
