Clean room and daily cleaning, there were friendly staff. We had breakfast, liked especially good quality coffee and juices, some variation from day to day in selection was missed. Metro station next to the hotel and easy to get everywhere by Hola Barcelona card. We would definiately come back!

This hotel is in a great location, near to Las Rambla and Montjuic region. It is very clean and the staff helpful. We paid extra for a room with a view, ours was facing Sagrada Familia in the distance. The bed was huge, comfortable and the bed linen top class. Breakfast was in the very stylish dining room. Everything you could want was on offer, cereals, yoghurts, a cooked breakfast, pancakes, cakes (incl gf), cheeses, a variety of breads, fresh fruit and meats. Lovely coffee’s, self served from a machine and a variety of teas. No complaints, do not hesitate to stay here.

Breakfast amazing with great staff and very nice restaurant. Bed in the room very comfortable and spacious. Staff on Reception unprofessional and unfriendly. I felt guilty of asking them to check in. Couldn’t use the phone to call reception as reception quick dial button doesn’t work. Need to come down to reception.

very clean hotel and staff were very helpful, however incredibly noisy if you are facing the main road. as well as that, breakfast wasn't great, decided to go out on our second day as the food was really unenjoyable. other than that, all was good and was worth the price we paid.

Stayed for 6 nights great clean hotel - right beside metro - unfortunately the rooftop bar/pool was not open which was really awkward for us as we were meeting our son who lives there and we had nowhere to sit in evening to relax - so disappointed- breakfast great and staff very friendly
