Lovey hotel in a great location near cathedral

Posted Jul 20, 2017
Pros: Very clean, modern large rooms, lovely staff. Rooftop pool to enjoy.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Central location, quiet due to being on the plaza. La Rambla is just a few minutes away. The cathedral and tapas bars are nearby.
Very clean, modern hotel, good size rooms and bathroom. Staff very helpful and polite. Swimming pool was an added bonus after a hot days sightseeing. A good size considering its rooftop location. Location of hotel is excellent, just a few minutes walk to La Rambla one side, the city tour bus stop on the other, but set in a pedestrian plaza with no through traffic. A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Great hotel in the centre of everything.

Posted Jun 25, 2017
Pros: Position. Staff. Pool.
Cons: None
Location: Near most sights or easy to get to.
The hotel is on the shopping street leading to the cathedral square, a few metres from the main tourist information centre. Great staff. The pool on the roof is what makes this special, a good size with plenty of sun loungers.

This hotel was centrally located.

Posted Jun 6, 2017
Pros: The hotel was clean, had large rooms, and in a quiet area. There was a nice sun area on the roof with a small pool.
Cons: We did. It find anything undesirable about the hotel.
Location: The transportation center was probably about 0.4 miles away. There were many restaurants and shops nearby.
We arrived around 10 a.m. And we were checked in. Room was very nice and a large. It was clean. It was located close to restaurants and transportation. It was not on a busy street so there was no street noise.

Right in the thick of it. Great spot

Posted May 22, 2017
Pros: Clean comfortably
Great stay. Right in a buzzing plaza next to the cathedral. Super close walk to plaza Caytaluna and real cool modern vibe inside. Room was very clean and comfortably. Highly recommended. Also TV had channels in English which after 2 weeks in Europe was very refreshing!

I'm really glad I found this hotel. I searched through hotels located very centrally in Barcelona town. It's easily accessible from the airport and well situated to walk to all the major sites. And if you don't want to walk, just jump on the metro and go anywhere you like. The Sagrada Familia cathedral is only a 15- 20 min walk from the hotel. The Ramblas is about 7 min walk. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We had lots of questions about the area and where to go. They kept their patience "specially Andrea " and provided us with lots of useful information. The room was very clean and tidy. The decor is black and white and looks very tasteful. The shower is fantastic! On the 5th floor there is a communal area where you can sit outside in the summer and even enjoy a swim in their outdoor swimming pool. On the second floor is the restaurant and bar. It's also the breakfast room. Breakfast can be included in the overall hotel prize, if you chose to. There is plenty of hot and cold breakfast choice for the hungry traveler, English to Continental. However, everywhere in Barcelona it seems busy and heaving with people. Just imagine all the inhabitants living there being confronted by the street noise every day. Luckily the hotel has double glazing. Our window was open, and I still slept like a baby.If you want a hotel in the middle of town with good connections to places, clean and friendly, then this is the place for you! Enjoy!

Great Gem in the heart of Gothic Quarter

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: The location. The staff spoke English and it was super clean and comfortable. Every night the staff would deliver a big bottle of water and chocolate
Cons: Restock toiletries more frequently.
Location: Very close to everything. Very touristy (equivalent to staying near a Hollywood Blvd or Santa Monic Pier) but I knew what I signed up for.
I enjoyed my stay at this centrally located hotel. It was within walking distance to many restaurants and attractions. Cool boutique hotel with nice rough deck lounge and pool. The staff was pleasant.

Lovely hotel in excellent location

Posted May 4, 2017
Pros: Everything
Location: Close to La Rambla and within easy walking of the port and other sights
I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. The location is superb, close to the old Cathedral in an area not accessible to normal traffic. It is also close to Plaza Catalunya where the airport shuttle buses terminate and is a very short walk to La Rambla. Hotel staff were polite and helpful, facilities were excellent and the room itself was very comfortable with a very large bed. At night time the hotel room was ultra quiet unlike many hotels I have stayed. It is a hotel I would recommend highly to friends and family. Definitely stay there again.

Well located in old town

Posted Apr 29, 2017
Pros: Location, breakfast and comfy bed.
Location: Central location in old quarter
Just next to cathedral square. Plenty of places to eat. Less than 10 mins walk from Placa Catalunya with airport bus stops or metro station. Most comfortable hotel bed I can recall sleeping in. Very good breakfast but pricey if you don't get it included in the room rate. There is a restaurant in a small square at the rear of hotel which can be noisy at night and the refuse appears to be collected in the early hours of the morning but that's a problem in a number of cities.
