Lovely hotel, spacious rooms, marvellous bath!

Posted Oct 12, 2017
Check in was easy. The room was clean and large with a separate living room, walk-in closet and large bathroom with separate shower, double sinks and a huge bath. The tiolterries were a lovelt rose and jasmine combination, and the bathroom and towels were soft. There's much use of leather and skins in the deor , so if you are a vegan it is probably not the best place for you.

Very Nice Luxury Hotel.

Posted Oct 3, 2017
Pros: The room had a lot of space and came with a lot of amenities. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was quite helpful.
Cons: Breakfast area was quite small. We had to go to the Derby hotel across the street for breakfast.
Location: The location was not close to a Metro stop which made it difficult to go the different destinations.
We were very pleased with our visit and with the hotel facilities.

A pleasant stay

Posted May 1, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel was lovely the staff were fantastic. The location of the hotel was a nice area and the local clubs were not really a problem as mentioned on other reviews. The only gripe I had was the fact that my suite was right next to the lift and if you're a light sleeper this was not ideal. I did ask if I could be moved but they were fully booked although I was told they would come back to me. I didn't pursue it the next day. Our room was also facing the street so if you had the window open it could get noisy. The pool was not heated so don't choose the hotel for the pool. That's why I am giving 4 stars and not 5. There are two hotels on the same street right opposite each other make sure you go to the right one! :) I recommend this hotel if service and cleanliness is top of your list. The location is good if you are getting public transport. The Metro was about a 15 minute walk. You can get a T10 for €10 from the newsagents nearby and it gets you 10 bus or metro journeys so very cheap! A taxi to La Rambla is about €15 I was told. From the airport to the hotel ~€30.

The room layout is very different and super cool! We loved our stay, the hotel is in a great location and we walked everywhere! The bed was comfortable, the room was a little noisy, the shower is all glass and in the middle of the room just FYI for the modest... Area was great, I would stay in that area again.

First impressions great. However unknown before booking with my family 3 gentlemens clubs (w***e houses) within 50 metres. Not a place for families in the evening
