helpful staff, good location

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Staff, room, location
Cons: Add wash clothes to bathroom. Guest passes with McFit Gym nearby would be great. Need English speaking staff to answer phone when calling in US
Location: Ave Diagonal shops and hop on hop off bus. Football match. Note for families. There are a couple of gentlemens clubs nearby, but are polite walking by
Nice room. Fairly quiet for a city. Central location near hop on hop off bus. Large room.

Good hotel, close to central Barcelona

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Cons: The Swimming Pool was a bit cold and small, but that's hardly surprising as it's surrounded by other buildings (shaded).
Stayed here for a long weekend. Staff were always doing a good job, the rooms were clean and very modern, breakfast was simple (fruits, meats, eggs, bacon etc.) but that's really all we needed and the whole layout was quite well done.

Loved the room

The hotel was a bit out of the way from downtown. The room was a duplex, modern and really wonderful. The staff was great!

Luxurious hotel with helpful friendly staff

Posted Feb 7, 2016
Pros: Spacious, clean, attractive, quite quiet room. Genuine caring staff.
Cons: My windows did not provide much natural light. Had to open window (in February) or too hot at night for me (still quiet).
Location: Walk to Barca football ground. Hospital Clinic tube not far. But hotel not close to beach, Ramblas etc. Quiet area. Good for business people.
I was upgraded to a junior suite on arrival. Very spacious room, more like an apartment. Very nice decoration and furniture, also not bland but quite interesting. I enjoyed speaking (in English) to the staff who gave me some useful tips about places to go and things to do, and explained about public transport.

Nice. Good Location. Helpful staff.

Posted Jul 5, 2015
Pros: Expresso coffee. Staff was helpful. There was a pool (clean). The rooms were nice and kept clean. Good location. Family friendly
Cons: The AC was not functioning. The beds are a bit hard. The fridge was little and filled so had to remove everything to use it.
Location: Everything was nearby.....public transportation, stores (high end and regular) - Diagonal Ave. Lots of places to eat. Close to hop on/hop off bus.
Overall we were very pleased with this hotel. Good staff, nice rooms, clean and a good location. Close to Hop On-Hop Off bus tours, good location for city bus/train transportation. Easy to find good food locally. Upper middle class area. Our only complaint is the AC was not working well for any of our stay. The room never cooled off.....was tolerable, but not cool at all. We asked for a fan and were given one (thank goodness or we could not have slept at night). They told us on a daily basis that is was being worked on, but was not functioning for our 7 nights. Assuming this gets fixed, I'd highly recommend this hotel.

Nice hotel locate outside busy section of the city

Posted Jul 5, 2015
Great location if you like to walk a lot and sleep in a quieter location. Very helpful and friendly staff. Our room was on the top floor and had a lovely balcony which we used every night. The room was spacious but a bit warm so staff supplied a fan. Only recommendation is that the bed should be updated as it was only a large double which dented towards the centre.

Spain is full of very good and kind people. The hotel staff is a good example for it. Specially, Mariela was truly kind and helpful. The hotel staff had no hesitations to help customers the best way they can.
