Reviewed 27 June 2012

Booked it through TA based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. The standard rooms were small but quiet with good AC and a small en suite bathroom with a brilliant power shower. Staff were friendly and helpful at the bar and in the breakfast restaurant. The roof terrace is a bonus when you want to relax in the sun at the end of a hard days sightseeing. Located just up the road from Hospital Clinic Metro Station it takes about an hour to get there from the airport (BCN). Although not in the heart of the tourist city, it is an easy walk to several of the main attractions and the Metro is so brilliant you can be in Las Ramblas or the Picasso museum in 15 to 20 minutes. I am hard to please and this hotel didn't let me down.

Stayed two nights in family room. Consists of adjoining rooms with connecting door. Reasonable sized rooms with minimal floor space. Our room had two bathrooms, one with shower, other with bathtub/shower combo. We looked out on a wall, daughters room looked out over city. Not much floor space. Beds in our room were two twins pushed together but made up separately instead of a double. Pillows/bed comfort good, not great. Excellent reading lights. Location is quite good as only a couple blocks from Hospital Clinic metro stop and walking distance (15 minutes or so) to La Ramblas. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Two metro stops from La Sagrada Famalia. Cost for family room E 207/night, excellent value.

Tips:

(1)Consider cab instead of Renfre/metro from airport. Latter involves transfer at Bart-Sands with stairs which if have heavy luggage can be a pain. Train tickets for 4 were around E 23 while a cab is ~E 35. (2)Lunch at La Flauta, excellent tapas/Sangria, dinner at Bar Paris, unassuming, inexpensive but excellent food/drinks. Both walking distance. (3)Casa Mila close-by and worth seeing. (4)Easy Metro or walk to La Famalia Sagrada.

Room Tip: If traveling with more than 2 people, family room great option

Nice to be away from the crowds but still a short walk or metro ride away from the centre of the city and all the sights. The rooms were of amazing quality for this price. The onlu downfall was the room service meals that were overpriced and terrible, we only ordered it as we'd been traveling all day. There are great quality cheap restaurant options in the area.

Stayed at this hotel for five days as a it was my husband's 60th and we were also taking in the bruce springsteen concert at the olympic stadium in barcelona.The hotel was spotless inside and the rooms were very comfortable, the reception staff were very polite and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The breakfast was more than sufficient and there was a very nice terrace on roof of hotel with nice relaxing music being played.The surrounding area has plenty of restaurants and bars and we found the prices very reasonable but prices in the hotel bar were expensive but we were expecting that anyway! Barcelona has plenty to do and see and took the tourist bus two day ticket as it is the best way to see everything. Definately a hotel i would not hesitate to reccommend!
