Good for a city break

Pros: The room has a kitchenette, sitting area, separate bedroom and bathroom. One TV in the bedroom and another in the sitting area.
Cons: There was a smell of garbage just outside of the lifts on the 4th floor.
Location: Good selection of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Different public transportation options within walking distance.
We visited Barcelona for a long weekend and were looking for a hotel that wouldn't be too expensive. Location would still need to be within good transportation links from the airport and city center. Bus L77 stopped pretty much right outside of the hotel and if you have T10 travel card one way journey would cost about EUR 1 per person (from the airport). Also tram stop is within 5 min walk.

Nice short trip

Nice hotel and good value for money, we found it very far out from anything though.

Spacious, generous accommodation at a great price

Spent 3 nights in mid-April to celebrate my daughter's 21st. This hotel is in a quiet residential area which is some distance from the centre of Barcelona. However I knew this when booking so it was no surprise. The room was spotless and the bed huge (6'6"). The living area had a 32 inch flat screen and the bedroom also had a TV. Not much to watch in English but we only used it as a base to sleep. The bathroom had everything you would need including a hairdryer and the shower was fine with plenty of hot water. The view from the balcony was great - we had a pool view and a vista of the mountains, sea and the city spread (on 7th floor). There were no kitchen utensils/crockery/pans but a hob and microwave if you need (we didn't use them as we ate out). I understand you can hire stuff if you prefer - I didn't ask. A mini bar was also provided but pricey, as you would expect. No full length mirror but there was a huge one by the lifts if needed. The staff were friendly and helpful and check-in and out went smoothly. Be prepared to spend about 45 mins getting into the centre via the tram and then the metro. I would recommend buying the 12 ticket pass for 10.30 euro, which can be used for more than one person. Also the 77 bus from the airport stops very close - 2.15 euro each and on return you can use the 12 ticket pass. We didn't really explore the local area but there was a supermarket close by which opened till 9.15pm. If you are happy to pay a good price and are prepared to travel to get into the city this would definitely get my recommendation.

young couple holiday.

This hotel is really great, definitely a good find! The only problem was getting into the city which took around 40 minutes. We got the t3 tram and then took the metro from Zona Universita. Transport is great!

Will be back

I've bought this package for my partner and I, then got stressed about the location as its a bit far from the citycentre. It was finally quiet easy to get there. The staff is amazing, the rooms are very spacious and we saved a lot of money on food expenses as we had a kitchen in the room!

Ok siisti hotla

Perussiisti ja ratikka lähti läheltä. Lähellä myös supermarketteja ja pari ravintolaa. Rouvalle sänky liian kova, viltillä piti pehmustaa, henkilökunnalta ei ratkaisua. Uima-allas oli laitettu talviteloille syyskuun lopussa.
