Fantastic location
The location of this hotel is fantastic. The hotel itself is very nice, the staff are very pleasant and accommodating. The room was clean and comfortable. I didn't realise at the time of booking that this is a gay or LGBT hotel but I am glad I chose this hotel as its the perfect base for exploring Barcelona!

Very nice stay would recommend , very close to everything
Steven, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
Meh, nothing special. Holiday inn level place
Basic, a bit tacky and stuck in early 2000s and def not ‘luxury’. Staff was polite but that’s expected anywhere. Rooms and facilities need updating
Gytis, gb1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
Great location with friendly service.....only criticism was the rooftop jacuzzi was not heated.
John, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
The room is spacious and the rooftop bar a good place to have drinks. However the toiletries were not replaced the next day, the shower flower is slippery and moves as you step on it. Mattress could be a little softer too. The gym was decent.
gb2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Some good some bad
We had a room on the inside where guests can chat and smoke at any time including at night. You couldn't leave the window open as the smell and noise would come in. This made sleep difficult unless you had the Aircon on. However the room was great with the best shower! I can't remember being told the indoor pool was 10€ to visit but the roof top area was free. It was a stay with highs and lows.
