Brilliant location. Right by the marina and walking distance to las Ramblas. Beautiful hotel and lovely staff. The roof top bar was amazing even in the end of November. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Upon arrival we were early for the check in so we left our bags with the front desk. When we arrived later to pick up the key our bags had been kindly taken up to the room for us. The room itself was lovely. The bed was extremely comfy probably one of the.... More

This is a high quality hotel but doing good deals in the winter. The location is perfect, a few minutes walk from Drassanes metro, views over the harbour and just a stone's throw from the Gothic Quarter with all its attractions. Standards are excellent. Staff were very friendly, patient and helpful. Our friends' bathroom had a towel rail not functioning... More

Visiting Barcelona for extended weekend we choose this hotel. Great location, small room, with no view, but great bar on terrace. Proffesional staff, clean, quiet. Liked the place very much. From this hotel it is very close to everywhere, in attached streets, few good places to grab something to eat or dring. See my reviews.

Situated in a really good part of town, not far from La Rambla, the bars of the port and the Gothic quarter, this was a really nice place to stay.

Really enjoyed a night here. Lovely staff and a wonderful room that was nicely designed and had comfortable sofas to hang out and work rather than just sitting at a desk. The terrace was a great place for a martini at sunset.

This was our first time in Barcelona and found this a great place to stay - very close to the sea, with a fantastic view from the roof terrace over the marina and super yachts, but only minutes away from the Ramblas, shops and lots of places to visit.
