I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Sagrada Familia (about 1km away on the same street). It was a good choice for my purpose, which was a walking vacation in Barcelona. I found all of the sights I wanted to see within walking distance, including Barri Gotic, La Rambla, and all of the Gaudi sights I had on my itinerary.
Great staff with a good grasp of English. Location is good with bus stop 2 minutes away, metro train station 5 minutes walk and the Olympic marina area a gentle 20 minute stroll. The only negative was our bathroom layout. The toilet was installed so close to the wall, wall heater and wall-mounted phone as to be almost unusable. Layout was different than shown on the evacuation plan so possibly some renovation work had not been properly planned? We also would have appreciated an English language TV channel other than BBC news, CNN news or Bloomberg financial news, but it is a foreign country so I guess we should have made the effort to understand Spanish more than we do.
Very cold rooms even when air conditioner is switched off. Very strange payment system: you have to close the bill on arrival not at check out. So you pay before the stay. And on check out there is the second turn because they have to check the room. This makes clients wait twice.

This hotel was easy to check in to. We had a sea view room which was lovely and the location was ideal for me and my friend as we wanted to be close to places to eat, places to see, beach and nightclubs. All these places were within walking distance or a 5 minute cab ride. We only experienced one issue during our stay and that was when the hotel room keys did not work one afternoon but after reporting this to the staff it was quickly dealt with and resolved. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it to my friends and family. Good price for the comfort and luxury we experienced.
Only there for the weekend and not a bad word to say about the apartment of complex as a whole..back of house staff as helpful as front of house. Although breakfast is an additional cost it was really VFM with a good selection. If you wanted to cater for yourself then the facilities with the apartment allow this to happen too. Easy access to most places via metro with convenience stores around the corner.

The apartment was comfortable and situated in a great location (close to a useful metro/rail station). The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen were modern and clean and relatively well-equipped. However, when we arrived we found two bags of rubbish in a cupboard which must have been left there for a while; this caused the room to smell. Also the 'laundry facility' turned out to be a pay-to-use service, rather than a washing machine in the apartment. The pay-to-use service was very expensive and so we were forced to take our clothes to the laundrette which wasted a lot of our time.
All-in-all I enjoyed the stay, but for the price I think that there should have been a washing machine provided.

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.
