" Big lack of service for 4 stars"
Good location you can walk around easily not noisy at all even with a room directly on the main street. Room was ok but not 4 stars (curtains, shower dammaged). Breakfast was included and average and customer service inexistant ! I forgot m'y mobile phone un the room and I call the front desk they told me they found it but could not organise to send it back to me even I was proposing them to charge the service of course!!!! I work in hospitality industry and this is the kind of small details I would always do for my clients!!!! Lucky us we had a good price offer the original rates are way too high! I would not return!!
Well located hotel, modern design and comfortable room. Perhaps a little too minimalist / clinical and lacks a bar area (you are essentially just sat in reception.) We enjoyed 4 nights here and would return.
this is a very strange hotel as we wanted to have some lunch there, but unfortunately, it was not possible as the restaurant is not working there. It is very hot in the room and the AC is not workin-use the window to have some fresh air! we wanted to have a glass of wine- not possible! the washing basin is blocked. we were promised some kind of "breakfast", so I will keep you informed))
"Great location, clean and excellent breakfast buffet"
We booked through Secret Escapes, so I wasn't sure what the place would be like and how hard it would be to find. We loved the location. We were basically able to walk to most of the museums, restaurants and shops and to many of the architectural sites. It's also just a quick walk to major subway and bus lines. We later discovered that the airport bus (inexpensive and quick way to get to all terminals) is 2 or 3 small blocks away on the same street. The hotel itself was clean. Our room had a safe, fridge, balcony and modern shower. The concierge was very helpful and the breakfast buffets were excellent. While the hotel doesn't have a pool or a gym, it had everything that we needed for our stay. The staff are great - they'll go out of their way to help you find what you want. I did notice that they didn't put tissues, etc. in the room but you can get them from the front desk.
"Its everything you want........"
This hotel really is everything you want from a small personal hotel in the centre of Barcelona. Last year we stayed at The Jazz and that was pretty good too. The Advance, decorated with beautiful Christmas lights. We arrived late our plane delayed at Bristol due to fog, we have lovely hot tea in our room. Room was perfect, room 106, little patio area all very clean, small yes, but why do you want a big room' Bathroom was very nice the shower was probably one of the best i have been in very powerful, lovely and hot. Room service first class clean everything every day. The breakfast was fab,very intimate tables for just 12 people, food continental but plenty of it and beautifully presented. The staff are delightful very helpful..... do try and speak Spanish if you can, just even a hello it makes such a difference.
