Would not stay again

This hotel is not like the pictures. It is old has a lot of rooms and inadequate lifts. Our balcony door did not lock and we couldn't close the bathroom door which let a lot of light in and along with the noise made it difficult to sleep. The bed was very uncomfortable, one bonus was it was close to the station.

Amazing location

Amenities are fantastic. Pool with a view a roof top bar. Great breakfast service. But we did have something going missing out of the room, after the housekeeping have been in. And the reception staff didn't really do much about it. This didn't spoil our stay that much though. Will defo recomend, just don't get your room cleaned and ask for clean towels.

Nice Hotel in perfect location

The hotel is situated very close to Sants Estacio, where the trains from the airport arrive and depart and where two underground metro lines come together. So it is perfect for arriving, departing and exploring the city. The rooms (we had an executive room) have balconies what we enjoied. They are long but but rather narrow, overall more than enough space but not really large. The staff was very friendly and competent, we felt really good. The roof terrace offers great views, but is not open before May. The breakfast is very good, especially the cakes :-) . The atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and comfortable. Some restaurants are just across the street with modest prices (dinner with beverages about 13 Euros p.p.), and a gourmet restaurant is there, too.

On the passieg Colon, we enjoied the restaurant "Sailors" with a typical meditaraneum cuisine (fesh fish and seafood, salads, desserts). Very friendly staff - a whole menu indluding wine for 9 Euros: an excellent value!

I would stay there again

The hotel is over 20 Euros from the airport by cab. The Front Desk Staff was very helpful and I really enjoyed the 'relaxing space' which is the third floor of the hotel. Breakfast was pretty normal for a European hotel, and a nice surprise was the 10th floor terrace with a great view of some of Barcelona while you had a good cold glass of wine. The hotel rooms were 'Spartan' with twin beds, a single pillow and an aging bedspread. The bathroom and amenities were pretty standard. The air conditioning system was quite noisy, but welcome nonetheless... As with most hotels I have stayed in in Barcelona there is no hot water/coffee service so you need to bring your own pot and coffee if you want some in your room. Free Wi-fi was a plus and worked well. A great Italian restaurant right across the street (interestingly not one that the Front desk staff recommended, so I am not sure why...) and walking distance access to metro and to the train station. The cost was low for a Barcelona hotel of any substance, and if you are there for a convention make sure you know which of the centers you are going to as there are more than one. Take your time and learn the metro system as it is very inexpensive and can get you most places you want to go. I would stay here again.

Both good and bad stuff

+ Very friendly staff + Late checkout even when rather full hotel + Open air pool + The bathroom is indeed 4* - The room itself is just 3* - Very small old-type analogue box TV - Air conditioner didn't work. Had to change room. - Floors & Walls not well isolated against noise - Wi-Fi connection on the upper level flows often breaks down. Not good on business trip.

Very convenient location

The hotel is ideally situated for access on the train from the airport. You can get anywhere in Barcelona on the metro from Sants Estacio. We were told there were only rooms with 2 single beds left when we checked in late in the evening so we took the upgrade to the executive room for half its normal price. The room was fine and the free wifi worked very well. My only complaint was that it wasn't clear initially that the hotel pool was only open in summer months. We stayed at the end of March and it was 20 degrees, that might be too cold for Catalans to sit at the pool but for Irish people, it would not have been a problem! But other than that, I would recommend this hotel to others.
