A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona.

I booked one night for the exhibition! Checkinn, welcome and be friendly! The lobby/bar/breakfast with checkinn in one very cosy room looks like a cafe It's my style ! Very barcelonic modern art decoration in floor and room transformed an old building in something arty modern! Room clean and functional looks unique. My room was a bit labyrinthy and some improvement but all well. Tea/Coffee station on cosy floor but missing real black tea. Breakfast is good and fresh ! I can recommend staying there and lots of cosy cafe/restaurant in a nice district.

I stayed 5 wonderful nights in this absolutely great room at this cute hotel. I travel a lot and this room (with balcony) is in my top tier of best hotel rooms ever! I can highly recommend it because the location is also great. I rented a bicycle to get around and explore the city. They allow you to store the bike inside whatt is a great service. Whenever I will go back to Barcelona, I will only want to stay in this hotel! Totally love it :)

Definitely a unique boutique hotel. Pros- The location in Born was close to all the Barcelona stops we wanted to see, and the neighborhood was safe and quiet. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Cons- we could hear everything that was going on in the hallway. It was so loud. The decor was interesting. We didn’t love how tiny the room was. A glass shower was directly in front of our bed. If you were traveling with anyone other than a partner, I imagine that would be awkward. Also, sexual innuendos were listed everywhere. We didn’t mind them, but it’s something to be aware of.

The worst hotel at all in Barcelona. It’s very disappointing, it doesn’t look like on the pictures, there are no windows and everything is old and dirty. It’s just not fair, it wasn’t the cheapest one on our list, so it’s too expensive for what it is. There is no place to dry our towels, no coffee place, and no view like it’s written on the description. The one of the 3 beds seems to be broken. It’s horrible.

Graeme W wrote a review Jun 2023
Edinburgh, United Kingdom103 contributions99 helpful votes
Stayed here for 4 night in June 23. The hotel is in an old building that has been brutally turned into a hotel where design has taken priority over functionality. In order to create the feel of a night club the rooms have been laid out in an unhelpful form that simply mitigates against comfort. The worst features are floor to ceiling plastic curtains that are reminiscent of a fishmongers. Direction signs are at ankle height and the room layout, with the shower in the centre, wastes so much space At checkin the staff were distracted, dealing with deliveries ans taking personal phone calls. There are so many hotels in Barcelona that offer better value I would not stay here again. I did not use the breakfast service. The room was mostly clean and the bed and linen was comfortable but the plaster cornice needed a food clean.

I had a 3 days stay at this lovely hotel brilliantly located in el Born. The hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay. First of all, it’s very clean. Then bed was uber comfortable and had nice amenities like access to free espresso and drinks area in a lovely lounge. The highlight was Mia at reception who was so friendly, helpful and knew how to handle things (not always a feature in non 5 stars hotels). Thank you Mia for looking after me. I’d say this is a 3 star hotel but with a 4 star feel to it. With a location that you can’t beat. Will be back.

This hotel was in a great location. The room was really clean, the bed comfy and the facilities great for a short term stay. The only downside to it was, that the room really hot even with the aircon on, and there was no window to let in fresh air at night.
