This is a trendy boutique hotel not far from the University District in Barcelona. At check-in, the staff didn't seem very friendly, but everyone else we dealt with after that was very nice. The decor is very trendy. The rooms made good use of somewhat limited space, and seemed to have been recently renovated. Seemingly good food options right in the hotel, but we didn't eat there. A Metro stop is about 2-3 blocks away. One word of warning: Don't stay here for the view! It's a very small, low-slung hotel, and our window merely gave us a view of another building across an alley.
Overall, we were quite pleased and would stay here again.

The hotel location made our holiday just perfect because we could walk easily into the town and to the metro stations: also using the Arc de Triomphe for our Aeroport journey. The hotel breakfasts were superb and the staff were very helpful. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel to our friends.

We stayed here instead of in the old town centre as we wanted large luxury hotel room, its about 13 euro by taxi, there is a rank right outside the hotel. Also, the metro is just across the street if you want public transport which is great value in Barcelona. Whilst its in the business area next to the exhibition halls, the location ensures you get a quiet and good nights sleep instead of the noise from a city centre location.
There is also a large shopping mall about 400m walk away with at least 100 outlets including many well known brands; Footlocker, Zara, Nike etc and a few eateries too, mostly fast food types. Try the 15 screen multiplex cinema there too if your Spanish is up to it.
We liked the whole feel of this place, the gym is a typical hotel style, smallish and I missed not having a pool.
If you want to relax in style in a modern hotel but still have the old city options within 15min drive away, then look at this hotel. It's also only 15mins from the airport too.

8 of us went 17-19th oct to celebrate my hen. When we arrived at the airport we took a taxi to our hotel which is around 20-30 euros and about 15mins away. Check in was very quick. Our room was amazing, very clean and spacious. Only recommendation would be to have another mirror outside of the bathroom which all 8 of us girls agreed with. Service was a little slow with the staff having to remind them a couple of times about drinks that we ordered but otherwise very polite. I'm definitely returning next year with my soon to be husband for a long weekend. Another tip is if you want to go into the heart of town take a taxi. Again it's 15-20euros but so much easier than their train system. The weather was beautiful to with the pool on the roof you got panoramic views, pool was freezing but once you were in you warmed up. Can't wait to return next year.

It was our first visit to Barcelona, looking at hotel location it is situated at prime location near to main attraction of the city.
Very good city transport links. Very peaceful and clean hotel. Ideal for city break.
