“3 Star - Just”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

Just returned from a 2 stay night( Sat, Sun) stay.The location is superb, just a 10 min walk
from the Plaza Cataluyna aerobus and hop on off bus stops.Metro station just over the road and everyting at hand.We were offered an Ramblas view room although small was clean and warm. Noise was not a problem but I think it is very low season.We took breakfast at local bars which were a lot cheaper.This Hotel is ideal for the first time visitor as it is in the centre,
the only problem is where to eat , so much choice and not as expensive as I had feared.We paid arround £100 for 2 nights

Dear guest
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time and rate us on trip advisor,
As you have explained, the location to our hotel is the best place to visit Barcelona. We have the metro station just in front of the hotel, and if you prefer to walk, in five minutes you will arrive to Catalonia Square, where you can take the Tourist Bus, the train or the metro. Furthermore, next to the hotel there are the Gothic area, where you can taste the best tapas of the city.
The street is not noisy due to the rooms are soundproofed, essential on the area because it’s a very crowded place. Furthermore, there a lot of places to go to eat, and sometimes this can be excessive
We hope you spent a great time in Barcelona and to see you again.
Thank you for having taken some of your valuable time to send us your comment.
Best regards

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

We stayed at this hotel mid December for one night just before a cruise. Chose it as we could easily walk from Plaza Cataluyna, where the airport bus stops and then walk down Las Ramblas to the port bus.
Hotel was better than expected. All refurbished to a high standard, very modern and sparkling clean with great decor. The room was small with very little storage space. Of course this didn't bother us as we were only there one night. Would be tricky if we'd have been there for several days and wanted to unpack. For a two or three days no problem. Bathroom was more spacious with a very large shower. Bedding lovely - comfortable.
Check in quick and easy. Has elevator. Stored our luggage for day after checkout.
We were in a front room, 3rd floor overlooking Las Ramblas - no noise from street, but obviously it is less busy in winter. Our room overlooked the Miro mosiac on the pavement below. We did not eat breakfast there as plenty of places on Las Ramblas. So convenient for tourist stops - famous food market almost opposite the hotel. Plaza Cataluyna with buses going to most of Gaudi spots a five minute walk away. We would definately return to this hotel. In fact we were sorry we were only there one night.

Hotel was in the perfect location on in the Las Ramblas district. One of my most favorite hotels during our European tour. It was updated and modern and felt clean. The internet was fast, the hotel staff were nice, the balconies and tall rooms felt great. The shower was always hot and consistent and the televisions had more than 3 channels. I would definitely stay here again. The hotel staff were also nice enough to keep our baggage on hold until our flight for a few hours after we checked out. This hotel is very comfortable and try and go up to the rooftop terrace to enjoy the skyline views of Barcelona!

Stopped for 3 nights just prior to Christmas
Hotel is situated in the centre of the Ramblas, right next to a tube station. Booked through Expedia and no problems checking in. We were informed by the receptionist (who spoke good English) that we had been upgraded to a superior room on the 4th floor with a view of the street.
Our room was on the 4th (top) floor and with a side view of the Ramblas. The decor was good and there was a hairdrier and good shower in the room. Also a Juliet style balcony with shutters and good double glazing keeping the noise from the street out.
There was a roof terrace which was open but not lit or appeared used due presumably to the time of year, although the door to enter it was open and gave a great view of the street.
The room was warm and the bed comfortable. For the price and location, we were more than happy and would stop here again.
Word of warning about some of the restaurants on the Ramblas, they seem to advertise relatively cheap ish food then when you go in, sit down etc, they hit you with the drinks menu, one place charging 6.5 euro as the cheapest drink for a 0.5 litre glass of cola! Obviously we left and ate elsewhere!

When it’s possible we offer up-grade to our guests to do the best stay possible into the hotel.
Like the rest of the cities center on the world, there are some expensive places, but for the next time we will recommend you the terrace that we have on La Rambla to take a drink or eat.

The hotel has great decor, but TINY rooms. There was barely enough space in the room for our luggage (2 people). We stayed only one night and would not have wanted to stay longer. We were cramped. The location is convenient for touristy things but the street activity didn't die down until about 5 am, so if you stay at this hotel be sure to pack some ear plugs. Also, their Internet doesn't have enough bandwidth for the guests. I was finally able to get online around 1:30 am.

The staff is very nice.

Dear guest
First of all, thank you so much for taking your valuable time and rate us on trip advisor.
We have to kind of rooms, standard and superiors; the superior rooms are bigger than standard rooms, and when it’s possible we offer an up-grade to our guests.
Sorry for the wifi connection, but this year we have changed all connections and it’s working perfectly during all the day.
Thank you for having taken some of your valuable time to send us your review; we hope to see you again in the Barcelona and you would check that we have improved a lot of aspects.
