“Good location, free internet”
Reviewed 1 July 2012

I found the location quite convenient, came with Aerobus from the Airport then took the 41 bus from Pl. Catalunya to the Arc de Triomf, i was there in less than 10 mins. There are many places around you can grab bite, the room as such is clean & comfortable, they offer free wifi - which wasn't working when i checked-in, but they gave me a cable which worked fine for me. There is free coffee & bottled water in the lounge, and some muffins in the morning.
the design was a bit too much for my taste, but over all it's good value for money.

Room Tip: good value for money,

This hotel was brilliant and just what we needed stayed here for one night to take in the sights of Barcelona. The hotel itself was easy to find and very funky when you walk in, staff very friendly and storage room to leave your bag, our room wasn't ready so there is a communal area where you can have tea/coffe and bottled water and freshen up in the bathroom. It is in a very good location 15 mins from las ramblas and 10 mins from plaza catalunya. When we got our room it was very modern and chic as expected, walls draped in beads, mood lighting glass shower looking out balcony to the street very European. Comfortable bed, flat screen tv and most importantly air con! Would definitely recommend this hotel for short city break.

This hotel is fab for a short stay in Barcelona, it is very and chic, modern and clean. The rooms are compact but absolutely fine for a short stay. Great facilities in terms of helping yourself to coffee and chilled water as well as biscuits, muffins and fruit if you are up early enough. Rooms are very cool with mood lighting. No good for anyone shy as the shower is in the bedroom. The area it is based in - el born - is very cool - lots of great restaurants and bars. A major bonus is it is near the Citudella Park which is great and walking distance to the beach and most other attractions. Loved our stay in Barca and would definitely return to this hotel!!

Room Tip: Rooms are small but great for a short stay!

5 of us stayed in the apartment in Urquinaona for a night before taking a cruise from Barcelona. The apartment slept 3 in the main room which also contained the kitchen and a bathroom, the bedroom - off the main room, held a double bed and en suite. The apartment is a 5 minute walk from Place Catalunya, really centrally located, very clean and would be a good base for a holiday in Barcelona. No complaints!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more   less
