The hotel staff were very welcoming and were very responsive to any requests made. The hotel was very clean and cosy. There are beautiful views from the rooftop bar & pool area. A couple of main attractions are relatively close (approximately 10-15 mins walk away) - the main high street (La Rambla) & the beach. Everything else is more or less a couple mins away, shops, restaurants, coffee shops etc which for me was very convenient. All in all, a brilliant hotel, with very friendly staff, situated at a brilliant location. 10/10 from me. Thanks Jibbs

Beautiful hotel

Great location. Roof top bar/pool area is a must (even though it was too cold for us to hang out there at this time of year, the views are incredible)

Ich hatte das Standardzimmer gewählt. Dieses war sehr klein. Die sonstigen Räumlichkeiten des Hotels sind top. Alle Angestellten sind sehr motiviert und sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Negativ: das Zimmer wurde 1 mal nicht frisch gemacht. Wir verliessen das Zimmer 11'00 Uhr und kamen dann 19'00 Uhr zurück. Ich meine das ist genug Zeit zum mal frisch machen.

Sehr zentral gelegenes, nettes und gutes Hotel

Pros: Der Service und die Lage
Cons: Frühstück - siehe oben.
Location: Viel, das sehr zentral.
Super Lage, Sehr nette Leute und guter Service. Zimmer eher klein, aber sehr sauber. Gratis-Upgrade war sehr willkommen. Nachteilig war, dass die Heizung bei kaltem Wetter ausgeschaltet wurde, wenn man das Zimmer verliess und so ein kaltes Zimmer wieder vorfand. Das Frühsück war mässig für ein 5-Sterner: Kein Lachs und unterschiedliche, frische Früchte an versch. Tagen. Dazu nur 2 Sorten Brot und auch das Saft- Angebot wechselte je nach Tag. Schade, weil das Uebrige eigentlich sehr gut war.
