A pleasant hotel in a central location. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and sufficiently spacious for the three of us. The breakfast buffet was classically continental and well stocked. The roof terrace is lovely but don't expect a large pool!The one downside which causes me to doubt the 4 star rating was the lack of air conditioning. The room was uncomfortably warm and the street noise made leaving the window open all night untenable. The manageress, who was very apologetic, explained that the air conditioning had been turned off in order to prepare for turning on the heating for the winter months, a 'quirk' of an old building! Overall, we had a lovely visit to Barcelona.
This hotel is on "Rambla de Catalunya". Not to be confused with Las Rambla which is the extension of the same road, but down near the Port area and requires a different car route from train station, etc. It's important to know this when you're speaking with a taxi driver. To/from Hotel, it's about €7.00 taxi ride from Barcelona Sants Train station and about €35.00 to Airport. It's a 5 min comfortable stroll to tourist area for the hop on/off buses and souvenir shops, department stores, etc. It's a comfortable 25 min stroll from hotel to the Port area. The hotel is surrounded by boutique shops and restaurants / cafes. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help. Most speak very good English and encourage you when you have a go at some basic Spanish words. Room comfortable (firm pillows - thank goodness !!!), quality breakfast buffet, fast room service in mornings.Tips; 1. Get a room with a balcony, won't regret it. Extra cost approx €30 p/night but you can negotiate. Aside from being very pleasant, it enabled us to wash and hang clothes out. We thought money well spent. 2. At breakfast, you can ask for your eggs to be cooked how you like them (not many people asked for this). 3. The top deck on L8 is very nice and small pool available.
Nice hotel in city centre, not far from La Ramble but short walk to nearest underground. The room was quite big and perfectly clean. The swimming pool on the roof is very tiny so do not expect a lot. Breakfast was fine as well.
Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise and 2 nights after. This is basically a review to let HCC know that the staff, especially Ignacio, were very helpful and sympathetic when I had my handbag stolen with all my travel documents. We had to stay an extra night because we lost our flights home and the staff were very accommodating - allocated us an excellent room. They made a very traumatic situation easier to deal with - providing directions to the British Consulate and ordering taxis.
On the Rambla de Catalunya, across the road from countless restaurants, 200 yards from the shops of Passeig de Gracia, and 5 mins walk from 2 Metro stations. This may explain why we had to pay so much to stay here that breakfast wasn't an option. On the plus side the bedrooms were anonymous but well laid out, the beds were comfortable, and there was a roof terrace with a pool (a plunge pool, and freezing cold admittedly) and a bar, which unfortunately never seemed to be open when we were up there. The wifi was really useful and worked perfectly in one of the 2 rooms we had, but unfortunately not mine. As a base to explore the city and surrounding area it was fine, however, and the staff were reasonably helpful.
