Location, location location.

We got off the cruise ship at 8am, took a cab to the hotel which was a 10 min drive. The hotel is located in a very convenient location with easy walk to busses, shopping, bars and restaurants. It was a Saturday night so it was quite crazy in front of the hotel but did not affect our noise in the room. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, small tv and needed an addaptor for power. THere reception area is in need of an update for sure. Also, for the money a breakfast should have been part of the package. FYI it was a 20 min taxi ride to the airport and $30 euro. All in all, it was a positive experience for a one night stay.

Nice hotel, good location

Posted Sep 22, 2014
Pros: The location was wonderful.
The hotel was very nice and very well located. I had requested a room with a city view and unfortunately it was very noisy. My mistake. Our paperwork indicated that a Continental Breakfast was included so we did eat at the hotel every morning. However, when we checked out we were charged for all breakfasts. When we showed them our confirmation they told us that Expedia had not sent them the same paperwork so we did end up paying for breakfast. Very confusing.

Great Views and Great Location on La Ramblas

Posted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: Location Location Location! The balcony overlooking La Ramblas was worth everything. Also, good windows so noise outside was not an issue when asleep
Cons: Walls were scarred where furniture was moved and slid agains the wall. Made the room seem dumpy and tired. New paint and the room would seem like a 3*
Location: Walk La Ramblas. Wander the narrow and winding streets of Barri Gotic. Take the hop-on hop-off bus tour. Eat tapas and have sangria de cava.
First time in Spain and we had to have a view. The reason we chose this hotel was the availability of balconies overlooking La Rambas. What a great choice we made! The views were spectacular and we were right in the middle of it all! The hotel is centrally located on La Ramblas between Christobal Colom park and Pla├ža de Catalunya. Also just a few steps away from El Barri Gotic (Gothic quarter). We never used any public transportation to get around, just our own feet! You're also about a 5-10 minute walk from La Boqueria, a large market with tons of food stalls. We did not purchase breakfast at the hotel. It was 13 Euro/day/person, but if you paid for all days upfront it went down to 9 Euro/day/person. There were so many other options available that we just decided to eat out every day instead of having breakfast there. THe number of bars and restaurants within walking distance is AMAZING. Those located on La Ramblas tend to be touristy and overpriced (We were charged 22 Euro for a single sangria one night), so be aware. Look at menus and ask prices because you will be gouged. But don't settle for La Ramblas. Go a few streets away and you'll find awesome little bars and restaurants with great prices and, as always, absolutely inattentive and surly service. The only negative was that the room was rather dumpy and small. Small is European, but a new coat of paint would really make the room seem much nicer.

Very central, middle of Las Ramblas!

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The welcome from the young man in reception was warm and friendly, hotel clean.
Cons: Inform customers that they will have a viewless, airless room. Get tea and coffee facilities. Replace the safes as the buttons had worn off!
Location: The tourist buses are good value for 2 days, but don't do the blue route (the red buses) as it takes 2 hours! You only see Gaudi's church!
Our party (3 women) chose this hotel on a recommendation from a work colleague due to its central location, right on the popular Las Ramblas. However, our excitement was somewhat curtailed when we opened the 2 sets of curtains in the room, (117) to find thick plastic sheeting covering the scaffolding outside our balconies. During our time, we did not see one single workman!! The doors were locked, so basically, no view, just billowing plastic, no view of the Las Ramblas and no fresh air. When we asked 'Natalia' on reception if we could change, we were curtly told that the Hotel was full and to ask again tomorrow. As we were only on a 3 day break, we did not bother asking the next day as we only had one more night in our viewless and airless room. No tea or coffee facilities and despite the room being for 3 people, only 2 sets of shampoo, toiletries etc and only 2 glasses!
