Wildomar, California
Reviewed 14 December 2012

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location is amazing, just a few doors down from Plaza Catalunya. We liked that we could just tell cab drivers to just drop us at Plaza Catalunya. The decor is over the top but we enjoyed it. Definitely not a cookie cutter chain hotel. The rooms are small but adequate, with plastic...

We stayed her for one night after getting off a cruise ship. The location is excellent to see the main area of Barcelona. We took a cab from the cruise ship (approx 17 euros) and the following morning we walked to the Placa Catalunya to catch the Aero Bus (5.5 euros each). The hotel is quirky and very pink, but...

We stayed 1 night post cruise. The hotel is in a great location on Las Rambla. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the 24 hour buffet was an added bonus, and was worth it for the drinks alone ! We had a balcony room that overlooked Las Rambla, and as we arrived the day of the strike and protest...

After a little hassle with the small elevator we checked in and found a very comfortable, quaint hotel with the best location you could ask for in Barcelona. Just a short walk after travelling on the Areobus from the airport. The staff all spoke very good english and made us feel right at home. The critics might complain that the...
