    The hotel is located in the center of the Gothic quarter - in the very center of Barcelona. Metro stations and buses are very close by. The facilities are wonderful - a very nice rooftop bar and pool, also a nice (but very expensive) restaurant.

    However, with all the fun in having a bar and a pool, the hotel was not a great "value for money", as it was very expensive for the tiny room we had (we had the "standard room". Also, the room we got when we just arrived was HORRIBLE - it on the first floor, facing the very dirty back yard garbage cans. With that being said, when I asked the concierge to switch rooms, she was very nice and changed our room right away without any arguing. Still our new room, which was much better, was very small. It practically had only place for a bed and a little bit of space around .it... and we spent there six days, which was a bit difficult

    The best part was the welcoming and helpful staff. From drinks at check in to advice during our stay, the staff was easy to talk to and attentive to our needs. We could not have felt more at home there. The location is perfect and the rooftop pool/restaurant was divine!

    We had no complaints!

    The hotel is in a perfect location, close to all the major sites, restaurants and harbour. It has a beautiful roof terrace with a bar and pool and the rooms are modern and clean with a huge comfy bed for a perfect nights sleep. It was our wedding anniversary and we were greeted at reception with a glass of cava which we enjoyed on the roof terrace and when we got to our room, we had a full bottle waiting for us. We loved this hotel, would stay again.

    Location is super. It is in the Gothic district. By walk you can quickly reach all major sightseeing spots including Catalan Square and Gracia street with shops and restaurants. Though Barcelona itself is very compact. By taxi you can reach any place within 10-15 minutes. Traffic is easy there. Breakfasts in the hotel are great. You can order by menu and use buffet without extra pay. Very good choice of dishes. Soft drinks and beer in minibar are complimentary. Rooms are clean and have all basic features including coffee machine. Nice bar with a swimming pool on the roof. Also good restaurant on the ground floor (recommended by Michelin). Guys at the Reception desk were very helpful. You can hire a Range Rover in the hotel to ride around Barcelona’s suburbs. For instance to go to Sitges with nice beaches and restaurants. By taxi it will be more than 150€ round trip.

    Rooms are quite small though ergonomic

    The breakfast was amazing. There was a large variety of food. Lovely selection of fruit, cold meat, cheeses ,cereal and pastries. Plus you could order from a menu. The coffee was excellent also. We would definatley recommend the breakfast. The front desk staff were very helpful. The Doorman was extremely helpful with our baggage.

    Our room was not cleaned until 5pm. We had been out all day sightseeing and returned in the afternoon . We had to call housekeeping to get our room made up. It was very inconvenient as we had to sit downstairs while it was cleaned. Its a shame as that put a dampner on our stay.
