Guest reviews

  • Single

    In-house restaurant and business-friendly features. Interesting collection of African art and artifacts.

    Breakfast is too expensive for what it is. Wi-fi is only free in the lobby and the signal is very weak so that the connection breaks frequently.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The hotel was in a great spot for us, near to the city centre without being in the really noisiest part, very handy for public transport which enabled some of our party to visit the Barcelona FC stadium, some to go to Gaudi Park - brilliant -and walking distance from Las Ramblas.

    Rooms a little variable, ours was brilliant, like a suite, some of our party had older/smaller rooms, but all good.

  • Couple
    7.4

    Swimming pool and a real jacuzy and sauna.

    The standard room is quite small and the bathrrom is really old-fashined. The breakfast is also a minus point (poor buffet).

  • Group of friends
    9.4

    Excellent location. Very friendly staff. Very reasonable price. Do not miss the restaurant catalana, a block from the hotel at the corner of Rambla de Catalunya.

  • Single
    8.8

    Convenient location, clan, friendly staff, value for money

    It's a bit noisy, as the rooms as not well sound isolated.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Pet friendly. Affordable. Good location.

    When we checked in on the Friday night the staff on duty were so cold and unwelcoming. We wanted to check back out the next night. Luckily, the weekend staff that came in were completely opposite. They were warm, friendly, accommodating and extremely helpful with planning our itinerary for the days to come. Without them, we wouldn't have known what to see and do in the limited time that we had. Thank you!

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    I loved the location. Many of the attractions are within the walking distance. The place is very clean and pretty. I also enjoyed the pool and the spa.

    I liked everything.

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Hotel was very noisy. Poor insulation between rooms and corridors

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We were lead to believe that daily breakfast for one week would be $14.00 per person. We were not told that it was actually $14.00 per person, per day until we checked out and were given the bill. The explanation concerning the cost of breakfast was unclear and misleading

  • Couple
    8.8

    Good location near to the city centre area and Placa Catalunia. Hotel was clean, modern, chic and at a very reasonable price. Would recomend hotel and would stay there again.

  • Couple
    4.6

    The hotel room was large and clean.

    The hotel claims to provide free internet access, however, when you arrive there they tell you that you are only allowed one hour per day (and you have to use it at one shot, not in several times). If you want more you have to pay for it. I think this is a bit misleading and not sincere from the part of the hotel. At our arrival, we were offered to take the breakfast for 7 euros instead of 14, we took it, but were disappointed with what was offered. My advice is to skip the breakfast, for 7 euros, you can do much better in barcelona. The staff was a bit rude and unwelcoming. The offered services do not reflect a 3 star hotel.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    I liked the best the near to the city centre, so I could buy something quickly.

    Nothing.

  • Single
    10.0

    Hotel location is very good, also there is a Chinese restaurant, can walk to shopping center. Clean and not too much noise.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Room was clean and comfortable. There's a PC in the lobby that's free to use. Walking distance to Metro station.

    Don't stay here if you plan on sleeping in. At 8:30 every morning, the doors on our floor began slamming shut. The walls are thin, and you can hear everything. The staff isn't very knowledgeable about many things in their city. They even had trouble looking things up on the internet. And they never got the Wi-Fi to work.

  • Single
    9.6

    Excellent hotel and staff and located in a great area. My second time staying there.
