    Great value, location, customer service.
    Fab Hotel, great location outstanding staff and very comfortable. Rooms are compact but very well designed and the upstairs lounge has great views, enjoyable varied breakfast and a lovely place to relax. Great value too.Stayed for a week and would be my first choice if returning to Barcelona.

    Great place to stay in Barcelona
    You will not regret booking to stay in this hotel. The staff are excellent; friendly, knowledgeable and most concerned that we were safe while Barcelona rioted. The hotel is modern and quirky. Door to stairs are hidden and corridors taper and run at strange angles. Your bed will be huge. I mean huge, covered with pillows and cushions and although not large is perfectly good and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is good, served in the top floor lounge. This also serves as a bar in the evenings. There is an outdoor area with a small pool. You will be spoilt for choice for bars and restaurants in the local area but despite this out room was pretty quiet even though we were only on the second floor overlooking the street.

    A surprise birthday mini break with a fab hotel!
    Me and my partner could not fault this hotel at all! When we checked in a lovely lady got us a refreshment, wished my partner a happy birthday AND upgraded us for free . The hotel too was clean, cosy and just really nice - we slept like babies. After our first day exploring the city we came back to discover a complimentary bottle of Cava with a hand written note. That evening we headed up to the rooftop bar, the views are amazing in the day & evening. The staff were lovely and friendly & we even had a chat to the staff member who checked us in who was enjoying her evening off on the rooftop. It says a lot about a place if your staff finish work and still want to spend time there id say! We’ll 100% be back the next time we visit Barcelona. Thank you Hotel REC!

    The hotel is great very close to the Arc de Triomph, which is great for the metro and buses. The roof top plunge pool area was great, and we did a tequila masterclass with Silena who was awesome 👏 really enjoyed this experience. All the staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Great hotel not perfect
    The hotel is really nice. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The hotel decor is stunning and looks very trendy and luxurious. We didn’t make use of the hotel as much as maybe we could have as we very always rushing off to see the next place on our list. Quite a good base, has all mod cons you could need. I love the speakers built into the room they were a nice touch. There could have been a mirror where the table was that would have been useful for getting ready. There was also no mini fridge which meant thou had to rely on the vending machines on each floor to get a cold drink. Which isn’t ideal. The lack of privacy in the bathroom was annoying. Which for us quite a big deal. There was a shop very close to the hotel which was super useful. There is also a little bakery which sold really nice pastries. Which meant that we didn’t have to get the breakfast buffet which sounded nice but was very expensive for what it was. Overall we were satisfied and the hotel met our needs. There would just be a few tweaks to make it perfect.

    Swanky hotel, trying to be hip and cool.
    Modern hotel in a mixed residential/commercial area, very close to city centre, so quite noisy location. Expensive for what it was, but great service.
