Nice surprise.
Missed my return flight out of Barcelona so had to book a night in a hurry. This hotel was a nice surprise. Older building but well maintained. Quiet room!! Mattress could be better. Rooftop bar pool lounge was super. Front desk was fantastic. Right next to the Metro entrance. Perfect for exploring.

Great Hotel
The location is perfect to get around Barcelona. The room is spacious and beds comfortable. The staff were especially helpful with anything we needed. I’d definitely stay again if I go back to Barcelona.

Hotel Review
Second time we used this property. Location is excellent. Metro station is at their front door. Close to all the action in Barcelona. Hotel was very well kept. Unfortunate, on the last day, we felt the (ONE) person at the front deck to be less hospitable and unwilling to help. Other than that, entire staff was very professional.
