I really liked this hotel for the room but I didn't like the location as much as I expected to. It is about 3 large blocks from the beginning of the Las Ramblas street which is very touristy. I would have preferred to stay closer to Catalunya and passage de gracia. Felt a little unsafe where the large open area with graffiti was- lots of kids on skateboards there. It was only a block from the hotel. Figured out how to avoid walking there but still too close for comfort. Otherwise great hotel and staff very helpful.
Really nice hotel, about 3 metro stops from Las Ramblas. Very convenient, lots of small cafes. Nice neighborhood, not touristy, nice to walk around.
Right next to a metro station and buses, which was very convenient.
The staff is so nice and so helpful especially Gabriel at the front desk and Manuel in the dining room.
Nicely decorated with the owners collections - Zippo lighters, old suitcases and Seltzer bottles. Really gives it a boutique look!
Breakfast is huge and I even got a gluten-free baguette every morning! Plus a copy of the New York Times.
The room was a really nice size, double bed, as was the bathroom with a bathtub. Could have used a magnifying mirror in the bathroom and better water pressure in the shower, but life is not perfect.
Has a small rooftop pool, not enough deck chairs, but really nice to hang out there in the afternoon, after a long day of walking.
We asked for a back room, so there was total silence.
nice location with great views of the city. be prepared to get taxis, although the tourist bus also stops next to hotel. taxis are pretty reasonable though. that said, we prefer walking and its only 20-30 minutes to beach/rambla. but its a pretty steep hill especially with a pram. excellent friendly helpful staff.
very nice hotel and room. nice terrace to sit out on at night.
only minor niggles -
the breakfast buffet was pretty average and expensive. coffee was purtrid as well.
also beware of walking into the metal bench at the bottom of the bed during the night - i got a fairly nasty injury!
The hotel is in a convenient location, near Placa Espanya, so it was easy to take the bus from the airport and walk to the hotel.
The hotel staff were exceptionally nice and helpful. The room was simple, but very clean, and the bathroom was great.
The breakfast buffet was abundant, and there is a small bar for a drink in the evening. All in all I was very happy here and will return again.
The fantastic location makes the hotel easy to find and getting to anywhere via the metro a doddle. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms are beautiful.
The food and bar was a little pricier than surrounding establishments but could not fault the quality at all.

This dramatic 272-room hotel towers over the business district, beside Sants station just off Plaça Espanya and less than one …More
Even though this hotel says its "max 3 people", the rate you pay only covers 2. The additional person is 40 euro per night. Wish they had made this more clear as we were not expecting that and had difficulty with staff as a result. Otherwise, great stay in great location.
We were only in Barcelona one night (we flew out the next morning). This hotel was very nice and ideal for our purposes. We arrived via rail at the Sants railway station and walked 1-2 min to the hotel which was easily in sight as we exited the station. The hotel is very nice inside and serves a large buffet breakfast (16 euros). You can obviously take a taxi to the airport, but we took a train (from the same Sants station--4 euros) which departed every 20-30 min and took ~30 min. The train does not arrive at the international terminal of the airport--you must take a (free) airport shuttle bus to the international terminal building and should factor an extra 30 min to do so as they can be quite crowded. I don't know how useful this hotel would be location-wise if you were spending a lot of time in Barcelona, but it is ideal for entering/exiting the city via the railway station with cheap and convenient transport to the airport.
The verdant hill of Montjuic has long been a place of recreation and achieved worldwide fame during the 1992 Olympics. Experience its breathtaking views by taking the cable car from the port and then a smaller cable car to the castle at the very top. The area is chock-a-block with historic and cultural treasures; don’t miss the Museu National de Arte de Catalunya (MNAC) or the Fundació Miró.
