    Taste the food in Cerveceria Catalana, you only need to walk 550 feet to reach it. We liked staff and service.

    It was more of a 3 star hotel than a four star. THe services were minimum and the room was very average. I had a great rate (approximately 100 euros/night) so I am not complaining.

    I like the hotel. It has great location - just in the city center. Rooms are clean and personal at the reseption desk looks friendly.

    Perfect

    staff were friendly, rooms were big sized , we took a triple room and the room was spacious enough , two blocks away from a metro station (Diagonal) and that means 3 to 4 mins. walking. The surrounding area is an elegant area with good choice of resturants , bars and cafes.

    Excellent location (close to restaurants/shopping/metro); very friendly personnel talking perfect English; Nice to have a relaxing Jacuzzi on the roof after a city trip day

    Rooms on the street side are quite noisy during the night, definitely in the w-e; If you want a quiet room, better to ask for non-street side

  • 8.8
    Great

    Location and international feel of high-end hotel.

    The restaurant food was mediocre and the blaring TV during dinner was totally out of character with the setting. They did turn it off upon being asked.

    Perfect

    Nice updated and clean hotel and room. Centrally located.

    Breakfast was not included in the room. No airport shuttle. The rooms didn't have usb connectors for charging electronic devices. No lotion in rooms. Our coffee supply in the room was not restocked. No tea available. Unable to take coffee from breakfast room.

    Very good

    Reception staff was very helpful in giving sightseeing advice and booking cabs to airport. Location was convenient to main shopping strip and about 7 blocks walking from Plaza Catalunya.

    Rooms were decorated beautifully and appeared to be luxurious, however, mattresses were very, very hard. Almost like sleeping on the wood frame itself with no mattress. We booked a triple room but were only given bath towels and hand towels for 2, no washclothes. Subway went under building so it vibrated and you could hear the noise about every 10 minutes throughout the night. Was suitable for 1 night stay coming in from cruise before catching a flight out. Would not want to stay longer because of the lack of quiet and comfort. They definitely need to upgrade the mattresses.

    Perfect

    Excellent hotel. The double room was very clean and spacious, with a king size bed, had seperate wardrobe space with a secure safe. Clean bathroom, with bath and shower. The location was ideal with various transport links with the metro one block away and FGC. It wasnt far to walk to other stations and the bus stops were nearby too. Possible to walk to La Rambla (approx 15 min walk). Hotel also advised us of the nearest train (Renefe) stop where its possible to get a train to the airport. Staff were very helpful, professional, polite, and spoke good english.

    Internet (wired) was available in the room, but it didnt work on the first night, however the hotel fixed it when we informed them. Wifi is available but only in the lobby.

    The jacuzzi was a good place to relax after a long day out discovering the city......
