Couple visiting for craft beer tour of Barcelona. This hotel is a little way out of the centre, but only a short metro ride, with one change if you want to go right into the centre. The metro is regular and easy to work out so perfect place for us to stay and access the bars that we had identified. The hotel is a business hotel and has all the facilities you would expect - a/c, safe, mini-bar with a couple of 'with compliments' drinks, robes, toiletries and pool towels by the pool. The pools are more 'paddling pools' but had comfortable loungers with bar close to hand for drinks. The hotel was clean and modern looking as well. We didn't have many interactions with staff, but those we did were friendly and helpful.
We were satisfied with the accommodation (3 star more than 4 star) but we had a hiccup with picking up the keys for the apartment - beaware the office that holds the keys are a fair distance from the accommodation itself (we thought we had to pick up the keys from the hotel opposite the apartment). Our return flight was in the evening so after the 11.30 am checkout there is no where to store our luggage - we couldnt extend our stay as someone else was checking into our apartment - so this was a bit tricky with our 4 children.
Nice location , only 300 meters from the beach and nice restaurants and not far away from the center. Room was very small for the three of us, one night the AC didn't work and couldn't sleep well. Pool very small and always full. Otherwise ok.
The staff were very accommodating for anything we needed. Room service was delicious and served quickly and large portions. Taxis sat outside the hotel if you needed one. The hotel had a good buffet breakfast for nine Euros. We were able to store our luggage and go for a peaceful walk until our room was ready. The staff showed us directions on a map for shopping areas, local sight seeing sites and the waterfront.

Nice hotel a little walk to the beach, about 30 minutes. Americans are used to face or wash clothes. None available and we would have to ask for additional towels as there were 4 of us. Friendly staff.

Occupying the area north of the Old Town, Sant Marti is the modern face of Barcelona. It includes the massive new International Convention Centre and the stunning Vila Olímpica with its Port Olímpic marina, built for the 1992 Olympics. At weekends its beach, restaurant, bars and clubs are hugely popular. Nearby, Parc de la Ciutadella is the city’s favourite green space, home to a zoo, boating lake, greenhouse and three museums.
