"Nice hotel, easy access "
This hotel is right next to Barcelona Sants train station. It made all of our sightseeing easy to access with a short ride. It was very clean. The bed was fine. Not super comfy, but not bad either. The water pressure in the shower was fantastic, however, the temperature did seem to vary quite a bit while water was running. We never had breakfast at the hotel or had a drink at the bar, so I have no input there. The staff was friendly and helped us print off a ticket we had bought online for one of Barcelona's many wonderful attractions. I likely would stay again. It was a great hotel with easy access to all the things we wanted and needed.
"Great service and food, not so good rooms"
The breakfast was amazing. I was in heaven. Lots of cured meats, cheeses, baguettes, yogurt, juice. It was perfect. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The person who worked the front desk helped us navigate the city and make recommendations. But, I was very disappointed by the room. First, the air conditioning didn't work in our room. Because the hotel was sold out, we were not given the option to change rooms, but instead had the maintenance person in our room working on fixing it. That took over an hour of waiting for them to come fix it and over an hour for them to fail to fix it. While they were working on fixing it, we went to turn on the lamp and one of the legs of the lamp fell off. The maintenance person just said "eh, its okay." After that all happened, I went to take a shower. That didn't fare well. There is a bar in the shower that the shower head and sprayer are attached to. I went to take the sprayer off, and I kid you not, the entire bar broke off into my hand with water spraying everywhere. I got out of the shower and called down to the front desk and they apologized and sent the maintenance person again. He looked at it, shrugged his shoulders and left. It never got fixed, we never got moved, we never got a refund. It was horrible. **I meant to post this last year, but it got saved in my drafts. This review is from 2016**
This is a good hotel, but does not honor Marriott elite members with standard amenities. If using points, be aware that no breakfast, no canapes, no executive lounge, and the restaurant is expensive for breakfast. HOWEVER, the hotel did offer a free access to the minibar, so that made up for much of the bad marriott redemption activity. Their wifi was very good, and their front desk staff was great. On the plus side, it is very close to the Barcelona train station and metro.
"lovely hotel with excellent food !"
spacious room with nice amenities. very clean and comfortable. very nice and friendly staff. superb breakfast, with my favorite Nespresso coffee !! snacks at the bar are excellent and nicely presented. dinner is also very good. a big far away from down town, but taxis are available throughout.
"Close to Station Sants. Clean. "
7 minutes walk from Sants bus station (exit McDonald side). An 8-10 euro taxi fare to La Sagrada Familia. Good service. I had an early flight and they packed a takeaway breakfast for me. Lots of outlets in room. Clean! Comfy bed. Minuses - room is small and lighting isn't so good for makeup and working
