The hotel staff here were very professional and very helpful. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. The swimming pool was a bit small but considering the hotel is in the city it was okay. The taxi service outside of hotel was quite easy and convenient. The breakfast buffet was also very nice with a diversity of eating choices.

Fantastic hotel in a great location. Literally 15 walk from the majority of the main attractions. Subway right outside hotel which takes you right to the further away places, eg: camp nuo, Sagrada Familia etc. Subway outside also has funicular to the Montjuïc cable cars. Our room was roomy with a huge comfy bed. Bathroom well equipped with shower gel, shampoo etc all provided. And despite being on fairly busy street with subway underneath the room was very quiet. With so much to do in Barcelona we didn’t use the pool area often but it’s gorgous and a perfect haven from the hustle and bustle of the city. Would stay here again without a doubt. Great hotel.
