"Good hotel with fantastic staff!"
We stayed for 8 days in this hotel. We arrived at 10 plus in the morning, and the hotel allowed us to check in after a mere 30 mins wait, they prioritised in getting a room readied for us. However, it was a double room instead of a twin room which we have requested for, they did explain that this was the only room available at the time. But the problem was duly solved by the next day, we were moved to a twin room after we got back from our sight-seeing. The hotel is perfect, centrally located with the metro close by, clean and quiet room, strong water pressure and very comfortable bed. Good selection of food for breakfast. Lots of good eateries around the hotel too. The staff from this hotel is exceptional, warm, polite and helpful, ever ready to please. A special shoutout to Christina, Victoria and especially Nachos (hoped that I get his name right) from the front desk, thanks for all your assistance and recommendations on what to see and do, you really made our trip a memorable one. Thank you.
"Great hotel but noisy"
Great hotel and great staff! Room was very spacious and even came with an outside area (we only had a basic room). Modern fittings and great location. The only concern we had was that because we were on the first floor and close to the lobby the noise was very loud. When people went for their breakfast you could hear their conversations and when the cleaners were making up the rooms you could hear the hoover and cupboards being banged closed. Apart from that great stay!
In principle a good hotel, but we found it a bit disappointing given the price and ratings. The location is great: 5 min away from the train station P. de Garcia (direct train to airport in about 30 min), lots of restaurants and shops around, 15 min walk from Sagrada Familia and about the same to the Rambla&Pl. de Catalunya. The check-in was bad: having just arrived from the airport, they started offering us all kind of upgrade options for extra 10-15 euro per night. Considering that the hotel is 4 stars and that the nightly price was quite high (about 200 euro), we did not really expect to have to start the holiday with some negotiations. The real problem was clear after some time: our booked room was not ready (although it was way past 14:00) and they were trying to trick us into a paid upgrade. All in all, after a long tiring conversation we managed to get an upgrade room (with balcony) without having to pay the extra fees. The room itself was a nightmare - it was clean, spacious, well equipped. The balcony proved to be just 2 chairs in the interior court - not really my understanding of a balcony. The noise in the room was incredible - it seemed like all water pipes were passing just behind the wall where the bed was located. So as soon as somebody was taking shower or flushing, you would hear a nice waterfall noise behind your head. Needless to say that we could not sleep and that we asked for another room during the night. The new room (which was just the basic room we actually booked) seemed like a huge upgrade as it was quiet. There were several things that did not work, but we were so happy that we could actually sleep that we did not care anymore. Don't get me wrong - there were a lot of good things. The staff was mostly helpful, the location is great, it's very clean, the breakfast was good. But overall we found this hotel low value for money as an overall experience. We expected more from a 4 star hotel and we will probably not choose this hotel again.
This hotel is perfect. Room are exceptionally clean and well provided with all you could need. It has a central location and although does not have a dinning room there are plenty of good restaurants around within 5 min walk. The front desk staff could not be more helpful and charming. I did not have time for breakfast when i left in the morning but from what i saw it looked sufficient. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anybody looking to stay a few nights in Barcelona.
"Great weekend stay"
Great location in lovely Eixample! They upgraded us to a larger room upon arrival which was much appreciated. Large comfy bed and really nice toiletries/shower products. The hotel happily looked after our luggage for a few hours after check out.
