"Lovely weekend break"
We stayed here as a party of 9 for a hen weekend. For the price we paid it was perfect. Situated a 10 minute walk from Playa Olympia and just an £8 - £10 euro taxi ride to the centre. Rooms were clean, comfortable with everything you need. Two of the rooms had an " eggy " smell in them but I think this is from the drains as you can smell it all around as you are walking around Barcelona.
I cannot express how much I enjoyed staying here. I speak pretty solid Spanish in addition to English being my first language, and the staff bent over backwards to speak to us in English if there was something we were not understanding, but were respectful of my attempts to speak in Spanish (I admit to being rusty). Room/bed/bathroom were amazing, minibar selection was solid and way more fairly priced than any hotel in the US (something I would never waste money on in the US due to it being so badly priced). Bar staff were absolutely awesome to us as well when we asked for recommendations on beer, and offered us free food that was still fresh but had not been purchased. Location is great too as you get to see a quieter Barcelona but are only a few minutes from the beach. We were able to stay here for cheaper with some deals, but I think I would splurge to stay here again in the future. Although part of it might be that we came here right after a semi-rude front desk man in Paris gave us a bad taste of service, but wow were the staff here fantastic and friendly. I would say anything in the 100-150 Euro per night range or less is an absolute steal here.
"not perfect but good enough"
4 nights stay and we were satisfied enough but the staff has to be a little more kind.Also they do not all speak english.Good location,away from the city center but near the beach!Accessible to city center with metro and taxi.Quiet neighboor
"Strangely depressing hotel"
Here for one night on business. Staff friendly and check in was prompt. The room however is really dark and stuffy. The air con doesn't make a dent so I've had the window open. Bathroom is really odd with toilet situated behind the door, so if you were sharing the room make sure to lock the door in case someone tried to come in, as they'd take out your knees. Floor 6 seems quite run down, with a strange damp smell in the rooms - I did notice some of the skirting boards bowing in the corridor, so I don't know if they had a leak at some point. However rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. Unusually there is no complimentary bottle of water in the room, however there is a supermarket in the shopping centre a 2 minute walk away if you wanted to avoid the 3€ charge for the mini bar. Over all, not hugely impressed by the hotel but offers clean and basic facilities.
"Same but different"
Been to this hotel before with collegues but im sad to say after bragging to my family and inlaws about how lovely this hotel is got a slap on my face.I and my husband celebrated our 5th wedding annivesary at this hotel.My inlaws also came a long. The room was clean but the bathroom stank. Like really stank. We asked to be moved to another room and our wish was granted ofcourse by paying more. We were disappointed. The outside pool was not heated and was super cold. The breakfast was about five times expensive than a lovely breakfast that one can have else where.
