Very good hotel

Very well located with plenty places where one can eat nearby. The neighborhood is very good, close to Pedrera and Batló House, for instance. The pool space is a very nice option in the summer days. Staff was very polite and helpful.

This is a fantastic hotel. Stayed

This is a fantastic hotel. Stayed there for four nights and was very happy. The price was very reasonable and the room was far larger than I was expecting - "standard double" came with a table and two chairs, massive desk and three piece sofa! Location couldn't have been more convenient. Two gripes: Firstly, the room was always, always far too hot. To be fair I didn't complain about this at the time, but the a/c was hopeless and in any case doesn't stay on when you go out of the room. Secondly, we asked for a double and got two singles pushed together. This seems to happen a lot in Spain and France, but is incredibly irritating nonetheless. Will be going back though, and recommending to friends.
