“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2012

Hotel in a good place España Square.
Clean rooms and showers.
Reasonable level.
We arrived in the morning, the room was ready but we had to pay 10 euros to enter early.
If you want to stay after 12 noon, have to pay 30 euros until 15:00, 40 euros until 18:00 and 80 euros until 19:30.
The advantage of the hotel is close to the subway station.

Room Tip: Request a high floor facing the square and the fountains

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2012

To put this is perspective - I have just come back from 8 nights in Barcelona on my 8th visit to the city. I had booked the hotel Jazz and forgot to extend the booking 2 extra nights so needed another hotel quickly. I found this on late rooms and i thought - great a 4 star when I was only in a (brilliant 3 star).

Sorry but the 3 star Jazz hotel ran rings around this one.

Its set on possibly the most beautiful but noisiest roundabout in Europe! The Plaza de Espana. It's so noisy. Add to this that the cleaners are banging around at the crack of dawn - you have no chance of sleep.

But we weren't in Barca to sleep. Location - far far away from the action though. If you are young and want to party - you will be a 10 min cab ride away from anywhere decent.

The rooms were a good size but crusty - like an old marriott. There was nothing 4 star about them.

The picture of the roof terrace is incredibly deceptive. It is half the size it looks in the photos, there is no bar or food during the day - in fact it is prohibited! So what are you supposed to do with yourself? You try and sunbathe but can hear nothing but noise.

Also - where are the staff at this hotel? Noone around the pool. Noone giving you the impression they are looking after you to 4 star standards.

It was ok. But it was nowhere near 4 star. I am an event manager and I book hotels all over the world.

Great location right on the Plaça d'Espanya with comfortably sized rooms – ours had a great view of the plaza with the Palau Nacional in the background. We chose the hotel also because of its proximity to Barcelona Sants train station, just a ten-minute walk away. It isn't the poshest area of Barcelona, but we felt perfectly safe even at night (but we're also used to traveling in large cities). We didn’t use the pool, the bar, or have breakfast, but the location, the reasonable price (with no trade fairs going on), the room size, and comfortable bed and free internet fully met our expectations. A benefit was being able to upgrade for various amenities like free safe or bathrobe or breakfast - nice to be able to make choices and decide when to pay extra for what items.

Room Tip: Ask to have a look at several rooms if you don't like the first one. We were shown three of vary...

Was there at 2010 (not as mention on 2011) and all was just great!

It is a great Hotel and I highly recommend it to all.
i still remember the coffee on it's roof near the pool and great view on the city.

Cleanliness:
The room was very clean all the time as the rest of the hotel.

Service:
We got directions and maps when needed and was very polite, also lobby stuff speck English.

Breakfast:
Was really tasty and good and keep as for almost all day!

Location:
Just superb! you got metro stop (we travel the city only by metro and taxi) 5 meters from the hotel and its the best.
