We nearly overlooked this hotel, as it’s officially 3 star & we were looking for 4 star, but read on.
Fantastic location, with major attractions easy to walk to (eg Casa Battlo, Las Ramblas, Gothic quarter). Aerobus from airport every 5 – 10 minutes, really fast (get off at Plaça Universitat – less than 5 mins walk, but return from Plaça Catalunya – 5 mins walk). Metro just round the corner – 1-2 mins walk.
We stayed as a couple in a Family Deluxe room (211) – really spacious, corner room with 2 windows on 2 sides. Beds (2 large singles placed together) really comfortable, though pillows less so (admittedly there’s also a pillow menu, but we didn’t use). No outside noise at all – possibly a rumbling from the lift, but not significant. Bathroom fine (separate shower & bath), with good water pressure.
Breakfast exceptionally good value (10 euros) with surprisingly large range of hot and cold food (scrambled eggs disappointing though) & omelettes to order. Coffee from machine not as good as a coffee shop, but at that price……!
Extra bonus – free Cava in reception from 4 – 6pm. Amazing!
Some other reviewers found Reception staff unfriendly – we didn’t, but you have to engage them in conversation – not the other way round.
Definitely our choice for any future breaks in Barcelona.More
