One Night Stay - Cruiser

Posted Sep 11, 2017
Pros: Staff were professional most helpful
Location: Restaurants, On/Off Touring Bus, Tourists,
Needed a one night stop over pending next day cruise. Was not sure what to expect but suited our purposes ideally. The hotel is situated mid-way to the Port. We were there for one day and were able to view the City using the On/Off Tour Bus. Boarding point was close by. The staff were more than helpful, The room was clean and comfortable. Short taxi ride to the Port. I would recommend this Hotel for people visiting the City or need a place for a short layover.

Rooms are ok but there's no safe in the room. The safe are located at the reception. Some staff speak english and some staff do not which made calling for general enquires difficult. Overall nice peace and quite. Good shops and food nearby

Dear Anonymous, Thank you very much for your stay. We feelt surprised to read about our staff. All of us speak english, we improve it day by day so, talk in english is not a problem for the staff. Concerning the safe, as you said, are located in a little room near reception (for more safe) and just the guest who booked the safe has the key. Anyway, we are glad to read that you enjoyed our neighborhood. We regret not having met your expectations. Best wishes from Barcelona,

Great Hotel and great Staff

Posted Jun 5, 2017
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. It is in a good location. Rooms were very clean and comforable.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Short walk from Placa Espanya where the Aerobus stops and the Open top bus tour stops. Las Arenas nearby with shops and restaurants.
We travelled to the hotel on the Aerobus, the hotel is short walk from the Placa Espanya stop. We arrived a couple of hours earlier than the check in time and was hoping to leave our bags and check in later. Our room was already available and we were checked in early. The gentleman who checked us in was very polite and friendly. He gave us a map of Barcelona and showed us how to get to the main attractions from the hotel. Our room was very clean and comfortable and was as shown on all the websites I had seen it on. The bottled water in the fridge was very welcome after travelling and was replenished every day after that. We purchased tickets from the hotel reception for the open top bus tour. Again the same gentleman dealt with us and was very helpful and explained everything clearly to us. There were a good selection of restaurants and bars nearby to the hotel which we enjoyed too.

Dear Natalie, Thank you very much for your excellent score! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the hotel and that you value the staff. As you say, our location is very good as we are very close to the center but in a quieter area. By our part, ee always try to treat the least detail as are the free waters in the minibar, give information about the city, buy tickets, recommending restaurants... Either way we will be happy to see you again in the future. Best regards,

Rude receptionist and unfair treatment

Posted Jun 4, 2017 on Hotels
The receptionist is rude and unprofessional. She was happily chatting and laughing to her other colleague while checking us in. And we were rejected for early check in but the other guests after us have rooms to check into. We saw this while waiting for them to keep our luggage. The bathroom is very small. The bath tub and the toilet bowl is so close together. And it's not easy to step in for a shower as half the bath tub entrance is blocked by a glass panel and the other half is blocked by the toilet bowl!!! What is the designer of the bathroom thinking???

Dear Anonymous, First of all we would like to thank you for your stay in our hotel and also for take time to write the feedback of your stay. We really cannot understand your comments to the receptionist rude and unprofessional since we always have very good comments about our employees. We are sure that our receptionists all times try to show their best face and they would never disrespect you. Concerning the check-in, we can assure you that if we did not give you the room upon your arrival (and if to other people) it is because the type of room you booked was not yet available for early check-in. We always assign the rooms by strict order of arrivals. Obviously, if you book a room type that is not yet available we cannot give you check-in (being this, if a person with another type of room appears we will give them the check-in before you if the room of this second person is available). As for your comments about the size of the room and bathroom, before making the reservation you can see the exact size information of the room and real photos. It is all for our part, please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to make any further comments. Best regards from Barcelona, Alba V.

Barcelona Hotel

Posted May 21, 2017
Pros: Great breakfast and nice guest lounge. Comfortable bed. Happily stored our luggage securely after checkout as we had a late flight.
Cons: The bathroom is small. Access to the shower in the bath is cramped and potentially dangerous. A walk in shower would be an improvement.
Location: Location is handy to most tourist activities.
Stayed four nights. Hotel is in a handy location for the metro and trains as well as the Hop On Hop Off bus. Relatively small room but quiet and secure. Took the train to Montserrat and used the HOHO bus to get a relatively quick overall impression of the city.

Perfect location for exploring Barcelona.

Posted May 17, 2017
Pros: Location. Good breakfast included with lots of fresh fruit & bread choices. Coffee was ready early which was great for our early departure.
Cons: Room size. More seating in room. Earlier breakfast on the weekends.
Location: Great location. Walking distance to beach & harbor area.
This was our 2nd trip to Barcelona so we knew we wanted to stay right in the midst of all the activity. Great hotel overall, but room was small & nowhere to relax & enjoy a glass of wine while waiting for the late Spanish dinner hour to come. Wish there had been another chair so one of us didn't always have to sit on the bed.
