            Individual guest reviews

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Location (bcoz of some booking system's failure we've been moved to Catalonia Pelai)

              Breakfast costs too much (16 euros) - we never ate ate the hotel.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Staff was very accommodating in storing our luggage for both an early arrival and late departure. The room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The small walk out balcony was quaint and picturesque overlooking two local streetside bistros. Would love to stay there again.

            • Couple
              7.4

              close to main areas of attraction, value for money

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              Good location and great value, good bathrooms for the price.

            • Single
              5.8

              The internet and the location. Close from everything but not in the middle of the "madness".

            • Single
              6.6

              proximity to city centre, breakfast buffet, friendly staff

            • Couple
              4.6

              The hotel's location is very good. Close to La Ramblas, centers like Piaza Katalunya, marina etc.

              The hotel has serious hygiene issues. Examples: 1. First night when we (me and my wife) opened the blanket we saw pieces of long, thick, black hair on the sheet. That is, the sheets were not changed. They changed only after we told them. 2. the floors are not very clean. You need house shoes otherwise pieces of dirt stick to your feet as you walk. 3. The last morning we met a big cockroach in the bathroom, around out toothbrushes and other stuff. I am no stranger to cockroaches: this was really huge! 4. When we tried to complain about the roach, the hotel manager tried to blow us off, she yelled at us, and the other staff also got very defensive and in the end instead of appeasing us (the customers) they told us it is "impossible" that they got roaches. So I thought me and my wife, both must have hallucinated maybe??? I am a university professor and the hotel manager's reactions to our cockroach complaints were real "textbook" management/ customer relations mistakes. I would say stay in the hotel if you don't care for cockroaches but then you can probably find much cheaper hotels infested with insects!!!!

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Value for money. Ok location.

              While we were staying at the hotel, the quality of housekeeping was poor in the weekend and good on weekdays.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Comparing to the price that we had to pay for it ,it was a very good hotel.despite close to the center,QUIET!

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              Nice hotel

              Ac didn't work well in 601. Pool and pool area... Tiny!

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              I stayed at the suite the only one the hotel has. What I like about the suite is that it is a duplex, with a large terrace on the mezzanine level. It is nice to have the separation between sitting room, terrace and bedroom. Free wi-fi.

              The suite is meant to have tea and coffee making facilities. Free newspaper. I had to bring to the attention of hotel staff that that they didnt' replace the used cups, they didn't re-stock tea and coffee. They didn't bring a free newspaper to the room. I was paying for all those services. Hotel management wrote a letter of apology, ensure that we would have fresh cups, more tea bags and coffee sachets, delivered newspapers, put a basket of fresh fruit and a bottle of water and invited us to a free breakfast. I rather that I wouldn't have to complain in first place. The suite needs some updating, there is no ceiling light above the shower, the curtain rail in the sitting room is coming off the wall, a bit of the skirting board has detached itself. One has to give a 50 euro deposit in cash to use the safe. Yes one gets it back but I rather that they would have had a pre-authorise amount on the credit that is only charged in the event of losing the safe key.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Room with a terrace is a really good choice

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              The staff were very friendly and helpful with travel advice. Hotel was clean and value for money

            • Family with children
              9.6

              My eighteen year old daughter and I traveled alone to Barcelona for her Senior trip. This hotel was in a great location. The staff were helpful and always available and the room was clean. We felt safe in this neighborhood as well. The rooftop patio was relaxing and the pool looked clean, although it was too cool for us to swim.

              The walls and windows are thin. When fellow travelers were noisy, we heard it all.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              The hotel is in a good position by the city centre. It has a balanced ratio between quality and price with low or medium tariffs . You can even reach the hotel on foot from the Nord station.

              The assigned room had a little worn furniture, the bathroom without window didn't have a proper exhauster and the cleaning was barely adequate
