Although our first room had issues, the staff quickly moved us to a new room with larger floor space. Great customer service by all of the staff. The hotel has a great location if you want to walk in central Barcelona

Swimming pool is a bath tub not a pool. Patio had very few seats not conducive to dining. Staff were great, location was good near Las Rumblas. Street is noisy at night so might keep you awake. Dinner and breakfast are not good at all.

I like that it was centrally located and essentially walkable everywhere. The staff was friendly and very helpful and accommodating. The full breakfast was delicious with a lot of assortment. The hours for breakfast were tourist-friendly, i.e remained available much later than 10 am. I would stay there again.

The hotel was close to the La Ramba and we were able to walk it easily. Many food and beverage choices near. The roof top deck was amazing. A small pool, lots of space to sun bathe and a bar. You could see the ocean form the top.
