"SHORT BREAK IN BARCELONA"
Great Hotel although a little out. It is very close to Sants Station - there is a direct line from the Airport - Terminal 2 ( 5 min shuttle from Terminal 1 ) around 4 euro or buy a travel card. You can also purchase a 10 euro travel ticket with 10 trips which 2 people can use, so easy to get anywhere in the City. Found the Metro very easy to use. Breakfast was excellent, had everything Full English & Continental, Kids Buffet, Cakes & even CAVA !! if you feel inclined. A small pool, not deep. good for small children or just to cool down, coffee in rooms. Friendly Staff & great food. Lovely terrace to chill after a night out. For the money you could not fault it, I believe it is undergoing a refurb.
"Perfect situation for sightseeing"
Spent a week at this hotel mid May in comfortable room at rear of hotel on 7th floor, away from traffic noise! Breakfast buffet was superb with plenty of choice in all categories - fresh fruit, yoghurts, cakes and pastries, cheese and cold meats and cooked English breakfast. A short walk takes you to Saints Metro station and the bus station behind where the hop on hop off buses stop. Staff friendly and very helpful. Good supermarket next door. Highly recommend this hotel
Enjoyed a 4 day stay here. Staff very helpful. Rooms very comfortable. Breakfast was great really set us up for the day. Location good for us. Used metro 5 minute walk away. Tip buy 10 ride ticket it did our entire stay. Really easy to get around. Definitely hope to return.
"Not a Fan"
This hotel is generally pretty decent. The location is good, and close to some very nice parts of the city. The design is modern but not too modern and the appointments (bedding, decor, etc.) are pretty good. But there are a few negatives. I don't know about the entire hotel, but I was in two rooms (see below) and both were VERY small. The main area was just slightly larger than the queen sized bed, with about a foot free on one side and two feet on the other. If I wanted to get to the second nightstand (they are very small, so I needed both), I had to walk sideways and shuffle to get to it. There was no space to put luggage up, so it stayed on the floor. As other reviews pointed out, the bathroom was very oddly shaped, so it was hard to get into and out of the shower and virtually impossible to shower without getting a lot of water on the floor. Maintenance is where things really fall apart. My first night in the first room was fine. The second night the A/C was not working. I was in a large tour group and several couples mentioned A/C issues so it was not unique to me. When I reported it at the front desk, I was told that it could not be repaired because the maintenance people go home at 9pm. This is a moderately large hotel, but they do not have 24 hour maintenance. So I asked what I should do and she said they could send up a fan. Since the room was already warm, I explained that would not accomplish anything. She said it would cool it down. I didn't have time or patience to explain thermodynamics to her, so I asked if I could have a new room. She said OK and gave me a second key so I could move my things into the new room. This started a comedy of errors in which I had to go back 3 times because one time I could open the new room but not the old one and the second time I could not open either room. Nobody was available to help, so I was dragging my stuff around the hotel at about 10:30pm. Finally I got into my small, but cool, second room. The third night was fine, except for some family having a very loud argument at 3am, but I can't blame that on the hotel. Breakfast is pretty decent at this hotel, pretty much the same continental buffet you can expect at most decent Spanish hotels. Good variety of pastries. Overall I think this hotel is OK, but make sure your A/C is working and insist on a new room if it isn't. You won't get it fixed after 9pm.
My husbands company booked us in here as he had a conference to attend later in the day. We are happy to say the hotel looked after us well and all our needs and even wants were looked after. Happy and relaxing stay.
