    This hotel is in a great location and for the price is a very good hotel.

    The rooms are quite small and a bit dark and sometimes noisy at night.

    Excellent! If we get back to Barcelona I will book here again without looking at another hotel. The staff was excellent - very helpful with tracking baggage the airline had lost, with restaurant recommendations, help with our 15 month old. The location is excellent - close to shopping, restaurants, metro. We walked to Eixample, Barceloneta, and the Metro is very near for further beyond. And the rooftop lounge/pool tops it all!

    The modern design, the location is very central. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool on the roof is great. Great view. Very large and comfortable beds. Room is nicly decorated.

    A bit noisy due to location on a main road. The windows are isolating most of the noise. Cant open the windows so aircon should be on.

    The view on top at the pool is magnificent. Central location, very good reception who know the way in Barcelona, the bars, the restaurants, where to go, how to go ...

    The pool was not heated, so too cold to swim.
