    We were going on a cruise and the location of the hotel meant that we could walk to the bottom of the road and easily pick up the port bus, we used the hotel the night before and the night after the cruise. On the day we left the ship we dropped off our luggage at the hotel, stepped outside the hotel where the Metro station is situated and went sightseeing for 6 hours, after which the Metro delivered right back to the doorstep of the hotel. The hotel staff were very helpful in the planning of our day and gave us a map which they marked up for us.

    The hotel staff was very helpful. They all spoke English. Pablo Perez, the manager was always attentive to our needs. He suggested safe streets to walk and to be aware of pickpockets. I e-mailed him before we came to Barcelona to make arrangement for the room. I wanted to be away from noise so we were placed on the 6th floor towards the back of the hotel which was very quiet. I also made arrangement for Pablo to receive our tickets to the soccer game which I received when I checked in. Our room was always clean and beds were comfortable. The hotel was within walking distance about 10-15 mins. to Ramblas, Catalunya, Barri Gothic and La Boqueria and the port of Barcelona. We had a pleasant stay and would like to thank the staff for their hospitality.

    The location was the best I can say about the hotel

    The price was way to high. It was priced as a luxury hotel. But the price was the only luxery. The standard in general was very average

    The hotel location is excellent within walking distance to the Rambles and other tourist attractions, it is situated on a very busy street but having rooms on the 6th floor and at the rear of the hotel (618 and 619) there was no street noise, the rooms were superb with huge comfortable beds, lovely bathroom with full sized bath and powerfull shower, plenty of free bath products and good sized towels changed daily. The view from the rooftop is fantastic and the seating area and pool is great, the staff could not be more helpful and polite. Hotel was kept very clean, the decor very modern.

    Could not fault hotel only thing was the breakfast, we only stayed for 4 nights but there were no changes in choice of food, but it was cooked and presented well.

    I loved the roof garden in the sun and my view from my room was great. I liked the fact that my room was look after so well. All the staff were very helpful and pleasant.

    It was a shame the swimming pool was closed and I would have loved a hot chocolate drink at the bar.The bar needed to be manned for longer, we often had to seek somebody out to serve us.
