    Good location, nice clean hotel

    On 7th floor next to a service room. Lots of banging and clattering at random times

    Excellent hotel. Definitely recommend it. Room and calm and clean. Large bathroom. Really enjoyed the swimming pool. Quiet area of Barcelona but near shops and easily accessible for buses and metro. Near to many of the citiy's sights. Would return on our next trip to Barcelona.

    Can't think of any negative aspects

    Situation Style/layout of hotel Friendliness of staff

    On main road side it is noisy if you have to open the window to sleep. Hot with window closed.

    Superb location - easy to either walk or catch metro to sights. Pool (although very cold) was very welcome for a dip in the middle of the day, in between sightseeing! Lovely peaceful (mainly shaded) area to relax in. Friendly, helpful staff on reception. Even though we arrived 2 hours before hotel's check-in time, our rooms were ready, and it was good to have two rooms next to each other. Rooms were definitely soundproofed too.

    Our room had no window, therefore no natural light. Found this a bit claustrophobic at first, and very dark in the mornings! Pool could have been warmer, and on our last day, we had hoped to spend a couple of hours relaxing at the pool before leaving for the airport, and the pool was closed all day - apparently for cleaning.

    Great location, plenty of restaurants nearby, 100m walk to metro, walking distance to everything.

    Breakfast buffet was pricey so we didn't try it as there are plenty of cafes nearby.

    Very good location, close to Rambla Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia.

    Poor sound proofed rooms, could hear everything going on in the hallway. Pool was small and the area (inlc jacuzzi) needed maintenance.

    The hotel was in a good central location though on reflection we would have preferred to be nearer the beach. We had a small room but was on 2 levels which suited us. We did ask about a bigger room and was shown a lovely big room but didn't have a separate area so we stopped where we were. Hotel had quality fixtures and fittings. Didn't use the bar or restaurant as there were so many options nearby. Pool area looked nice though we didn't really use it as it lost the sun in the afternoon.

    - good location near city centre - helpful reception staff - solid wifi speed - eating places near hotel

    - wifi had to be repeatedly registered for each day if device left the room - breakfast was offered but price was prohibitive - wasn't told about how to log on to wifi or where pool was

    Good internet connection and good location

    The mattress of the room I stayed was overused and therefore bended.One of the mattress springs had a sharp edge going to the surface that scratched me the first night. I think that maintenance should be of utmost importance. One day, there was missing a towel for the hairs as well.

    Really helpful staff, especially when needing to use the computer to rebook delayed flights. Great location with lots of little bars and restaurants nearby. Excellent small pool with sun- loungers, and one of the best steam rooms and jacuzzi we have ever come across. Very peaceful if you book a room overlooking the internal terraces and gardens. Really comfortable beds and well furnished rooms.

    There was a strange pseudo-plant in a large pot by the window made (apparently) from dozens of discarded j cloths. Ridiculous. While we appreciated the items of African art in the lobby (owned by the Derby hotel group), we had doubts about the security of the display cases and were concerned that conservation issues were not not necessarily being taken care of. It will be interesting to see if similar objects that will be on display in the future museum of world objects, opening in the spring opposite the Picasso museum, get a more secure environment.

    Great location and pool area. Room was very dark and small but we had ordered a family room and been given 2 adjoining rooms for same price so this was great. Breakfast staff muddled up order twice and one of the men on the desk was rude , rest of staff v pleasant . Overall good hotel for 3 star and would recommend and return.

    As above, room was dark, front desk man rude .

    very-very-very good hotel. It is situated cole to plasa de catalonya. Clean and quiet if you have a room with windows in the yard. There is also a swimming pool and sauna. Everything was perfect. We would recommend it for sure.

    good value for money

    we got wi fi only after we complained twice and once, to catch it, even had to move all our unpacked luggage t a different room on the other floor (had to pack it all over again for this); the breakfast is too expensive for what it is (a small variety f everything), but is worth considering for those who like yogurts and cereal for breakfast (not only eggs an bread+cheese) - there no places around the area serving all this

    The location is great and easy to get to from the airport if you catch the train to Passieg de Gracia. The location is quiet but within easy walking distance of la ramblas and a great choice of restaurants and bars. Really nice to have the pool/Jacuzzi to come back to after a long day of walking
