    We had an excellent stay at this hotel! The staff are just outstanding and the rooms are amazing. We got upgraded to one of the deluxe rooms with the gorgeous balcony which was a lovely touch to our honeymoon. The rooftop bar and pool is excellent and the drinks are great. This hotel certainly contributed to us falling in love with Barcelona and we will definitely be back!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice place in the city center

    The hotel was nice and clean as well as the room. We haven't had breakfast as we woke up early to explore the city and also wanted to try out some of the local goodies, so I can't review that. The location is great. It is close to the city center. Not far away is a large subway/train hub as well as airport bus stop (when you arrive) and terminal (when you leave). On the side note be aware the hotel will want your credit card number when you check-in. That quite surprised us but from what we were told this was instead of a deposit in case we damaged something. Unfortunately though we weren't told we should expect a transaction to be made by that card. They charged us 6 EUR during our first night which resulted in our card getting blocked. We didn't know it was coming, also on the transaction list in the banking app it was listed as "Poble Espanyol" instead of it having any relation to the hotel itself, so we accepted for the card to be frozen as we were afraid our credentials were stolen. In two days we were told to get in touch with the reception where we were told they were behind this transaction. Fortunately we were able to restore our credit card later. This second time we were asked to use our credit card directly with they card terminal. So why haven't they asked us to use the card with their terminal in the beginning, or at least told us we should expect the charge? And just as hotels.com says, don't forget you'll be charged a city tax on arrival too.

  • 4.0.Fair

    The cleanliness of the rooms were poor, floor was dirty, mirror was stained. The layout of the room was fit for purpose, nowhere. Housekeeping would start cleaning before 8am and would make so much noise that ended up getting up each morning early. When we told the reception they just shrug their shoulders, no apology nothing!
