Good Stuff!

The hotel is located just above "Parallel" metro station. Can't ask for anything more. Commendations goes out to our best receptionist (Francisco) who was so jovial & extremely helpful with directions and getting around the city. Really nothing to complain about! Thanks for giving us such a nice time in Barcelona!

Check twice

staff appeared very friendly and helpful. However when I asked the price of a shuttle for transport to the train station by hotel staff was quoted twice what another staff person book the same shuttle for. Therefore became very distrusting of the staff.

Great location in Barcelona

This four star hotel was located in Central Barcelona with easy access to tourist hot spots. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean. We certainly were not cramped as there was plenty of space. The restaurant served a delicious evening fare. I hade the slow cooked steak which was the most tender steak I have ever eaten ... delicious!

Exceptional Service + comfortable room

The rooms are modern and chic and the bed super comfortable. Very conveniently located to all the main attractions and entertainment. I had a chest infection during our visit and the team member (sorry, I was too sick to even get your name) was very generous with kindness - thank you.
