We booked this hotel as we arrived in by train and had to leave Barcelona the following day by air. Very easy to locate and quite seeing its on top of a train station. This hotel has a space theme which gives it a good/querky atmosphere. The rooms are simple, clean and perfect for an overnight stay and at a reasonable price.
Its only a 10min walk to the Las Torres shopping centre and the hotel has a great cafe which is open all hours and a huge buffet.
Room was large, clean and quiet. View was good. Hotel staff were very nice and helpful. Location was not near any major attractions. However, it will be good location if you travel by train or bus. It is right beside the Saint train/bus station. There is a Hop On Hop Off bus stop nearby.
This dramatic 272-room hotel towers over the business district, beside Sants station just off Plaça Espanya and less than one …More
"Convenient to central downtown with access to port"
Nice accommodations with convenient access to port, cable car, shopping and restaurants on quiet side street to Las Ramblas. Upbeat decor with modern conveniences and pleasant staff. String recommendation from seasoned travelor.
"Great hotel if you want to be in that part of town"
This isn't a completely central hotel, but perfect if you want to be in that part of town, and is just off the main road, with access to several bus routes. It's about halfway between the airport (take the 46 bus) and town (take the L94 or L95 bus to Placa de Catalunya, the terminus).
There is a bit of traffic noise, but it isn't too bad. Décor is sophisticated, staff are friendly. Reception staff speak English, as do most of the bar staff. The bar is very handy, actually - 24 hours and with the same menu as room service. A handy electronic buzzer allows you to call a waiter, cancel an order, or ask for the bill. Free tea, coffee, and water are available from the bar.
The rooms have good air conditioning, and a reasonably priced minibar. WiFi is free throughout the hotel, although slower in the room - but the website, in-room service directory, and my booking confirmation all say it's charged for in the rooms! Confusing.. Breakfast is what I would consider overpriced, but there is a bakery just down the road, and a small supermarket. There's also a new shopping centre right nearby, with several dining options.
If you want to stay around this area, I would recommend this hotel.
Very impressed from the start! Great looking hotel warm friendly staff, we arived early but they had 2 of our 3 rooms ready. We were 3 couples & I did all the booking so was praying it was at least clean? The room was spotless & very new, great size with a well stocked mini bar that's not too over priced. They provide lots of extras which was a lovely touch! We were on floor 5, rooms 502 & 503 were at the back my sister was in 508 facing us at the front but they said it was a bit too noisy with the traffic at night, we didn't hear anything, the beds are big & comfortable & the shower was great! Cute pool & mini golf, also Terence bar but the pool wasn't heated so we gave that a miss with it being October. It's about 5 min taxi ride to Les ramblas which was about €7 there are buses but it was easy & quick especially when your only there for the weekend, we enjoyed the breakfast in the hotel there was a large choice & they make great omelettes eat & drink till your full for €15 each, which we found great value for money. The staff were lovely & nothing was too much trouble, would defiantly stay there again when we next visit Barcelona & ask for room 503!
Easy access for the airport and downtown Barcelona using the nearby Metro and airport bus stop.
Efficient friendly reception who gave us early access to our room.
Our superior room was spacious, comfortable and quiet.
The breakfast was good but the breakfast room was rather 'institutional' and the staff not really welcoming.
Overall, a good hotel for business or pleasure but not distinctive or memorable in a very competitive city.

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.
