A wonderful hotel is a good location with comfortable rooms and good food. It has a lovely rooftop 'Skybar' with a pool and loungers - great after sightseeing. Very helpful and friendly staff who kindly returned a jacket to us which we left in the hotel.

Had a great stay here, couldn't be a better location. The rooftop pool and bar are a wonderful way to spend the rest of the day after exploring the city. Alfonso, the door man, was especially great, very polite and professional. I would highly recommend staying here.

To put my review into perspective: I have lived in Barcelona before, this visit was for a 3-day business meeting. Arriving at the hotel – centrally located at Via Laietana – was already a treat. We were a couple of colleagues, so the agents took us aside and offered some coffee. In the meantime, they checked us in and we...

Magnificent location in the centre of the city but also feels like a home rather than hotel as staff treat you like family in the bustle of Barcelona. Take to the roof top pool for the best views of the city and a pool that will make you want to come back. Highly recommend the new city bar restaurant- excellent...

Location perfect for us steps from main old town cathedral, shops etc. The staff was very friendly, helpful and courteous. Hotel car and driver we hired for day was expensive but well worth it for the three of us. $175 for 4 hours, (we hired it for 8 hours) but cut time to get to Montserrat Monestary and city sightseeing...

This hotel was outstanding! Exceptionally clean, good room sizes and the most comfortable beds. Excellent staff who were very happy to help, upon arrival we were upgraded free of charge without asking which was a lovely gesture, had good recommendations for restaurants and places to visit, an excellent short break in this hotel is highly recommended.

Lovely to be back. Service perfect and room lovely. Unlike large hotels which can be like bed factories, this is smaller, stylish, sophisticated. The views from the rooftop are beautiful, and recommend a cocktail whilst the sun sets. The rooms are quiet, stocked with all essentials, and big comfy beds with plenty of pillows. The staff are really friendly and...

I spent 4 nights here in late April 2017 and loved my entire stay. The hotel design is modern and sleek with luxurious touches. The staff were wonderful and added a few perks for being a Platinum member. The rooftop pool area was wonderful, but the weather didn't cooperate with us, so we didn't use it as much as I'd...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
