                Location

                With the exception of Sandra at the front desk, the attitude of the staff, the way pc and telephone commection was working, the price, the small pool on the roof, the small space of the room, the rooms without the views of the torre agbar. I would suggest this hotel only for a room with the view of the Agbar tower. Forget about the rest unless you are a fanatic for design.

              • Single
                6.2

                Location, some of the design.

                The hotel was very badly built, was done cheaply to save cost and as a result it's falling to pieces. It cannot be classed as luxury or boutique for this reason. It a reasonably priced 4 star hotel.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Great location, staff professional and friendly, stylish rooms. The restaurant is excellent.

                8.8

                I loved the room we stayed in. The pool on the top floor was lovely. All staff were very helpfull. The hotel is beautiful and I would defintely go back.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                Hotel staff was absolutely friendly, helpful. Room were very clean, bad linen was changed every day. It's only 3 metro stops from Plaza di Catalunya, and about 10 mins drive by bus to the airport. Shopping centre right next to it, and 10-15 mins walk to Sagrada Familia. Breakfast and restaurant was absolutely delicious, I would prefer hotel restaurant rather then restaurants in La Ramblas as they only had Spanish name but the food was average, where is in Silken diagonal - we had lovely Spanish food. Would highly recommend this hotel! And also we had an amazing view from our window to Agbar Tower with lightens at night! Great hotel! Great service! Multilingual staff!

                As I was travelling with my father I we stayed in twin room - I didn't feel comfortable with clear glass separating the bathroom and the room itself. But it's only because I was with my dad. But it's actually very nice for a married or unmarried couple.

              • Couple
                6.6

                Friendly and helpfull stuff, quite interesting design of the rooms.

                Construction area is all around working from 7 am to 23 pm. In our first room there were problems with air conditioner and shower, hence we had to change room. Fantastic terrace on the roof, however due to the construction around there was not pleasant to be there.

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Very happy with the location of the hotel - good to be away from the busy Ramblas area - and a welcome surprise to find tour bus stop right across the road and fantastic shopping centre so close

                10.0

                Staff were excellent

                I asked to take a photo of the pool 20 mins before it was opened and they said no so i didnt get to see the pool but besides that great hotel

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Nice ultra modern hotel close to metro which takes you to the center of town within appx 3 stops. A nice mall across the street. Good air conditioning. If not, ask them to change the filter.

                The hotel was a bit pricey considering they only offer gratis internet with an extremely slow connection (took 20 minutes just to load up) that basically serves as a teaser to inspire you to upgrade to faster internet connection for appx 12 euros for 24 hours. The bathroom is basically a glass square box in the center of the room. Not recommended for people who do not want to display themselves to their roommate while showering, etc.

              • Single
                3.2

                The design of the hotel, the shopping mall righ across the street.

                Price/quality was not good at all. There were brown stains on the curtains, the carpet was covered with stains (bed side), there were grease stains on the floor of the bathroom. The candy, the shampoo and shower gel wasn't replenished. When complaining at the desk, no excuse, no new room, just a face of astonishment ... This is hotel can certainly not be compared with same type of hotels abroad. The view is also poor as the hotel is surrounded with construction sites all over.

                7.0

                I liked the location, liked the look of the hotel.

                It is not up to standard of 4 star, I would not pay more than 130 euro for the room again. Saying that, my wife had no fault with the hotel, loved the roof.

              • Couple
                7.8

                Views from room to Sagrada Familia, modern clean and fresh hotel right across the road from great shopping! Walkable to beach and local metro.

                Liked it all

              • Family with children
                8.8

                nice view from room, hotel staff

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location was very good just a few stops on tube. Comfortable beds. Free safe.

                Bathroom ceiling leaked water, some through the light! Door handles loose. Hotel fittings seem to be poorly put together. Pool very small.

                Really good location for getting around barcelona, only 4 stops on the metro from Catalunya and of a night the taxi back was only 8 euros. Amazing views, really helpful staff, beautifully designed rooms. Across the road from a shopping centre with a supermarket.

                Only issue was breakfasts they seemed over prices 18 euros for a continental breakfast and then to add extras such as bacon, eggs there was a charge. Air-conditioning wasn't amazing was still quite warm of an evening getting ready to go out but that could be down to the sun setting on our side of the hotel heating the room up.
