The hotel is stunning, room a little small but stunning none the less, rooftop bar is great and the breakfast was very good not much to worry about other than the cocktail prices and the slow wifI but it was free.
The location is ok quite near the metro with some nice restaurant's near by but the area is up and coming.
We stayed one night prior to departing on a cruise and found the hotel just perfectly located. Received great recommendations for dinner and enjoyed a quiet, restful night after a long overseas flight.
Was worried when read review of the area as seedy, but not what we found when out in day and earlyish evenings. Fab quite quiet location, a minute from las ramblas, 20 mins from beach, 5 mins from old quarter and lovely palm-lined square, 5 mins from amazing market. Apartment was great for our family of 4, felt safe, we were lucky to get a balcony and had a\c in some rooms. Also mini bath and shower. Kitchen v clean. Small prob with a light was fixed within 10 mins!! Made great base as so central.
We got a nice apartment that fit our needs perfectly. We two adults and three kids and it was plenty of space. The only problem was that they had not received our booking from expedia which took some time to fix.
