Negative: 1. After arriving, my boyfriend scent this awful cigarette smell in the small room we were provided, but with a huge bed. Not cosy at all. After I arrived, and didnt want to stay find days in that room, we asked for a change. We were charged for moving into a nicer room with smaller bed and no cigarette smell. 2. I asked for information regarding a vasque place to eat which was supposed to be near. they gave me the information but. didnt know that it was already closed! Apparently business was not that good in that tapas ... bar. They should not recommend sth which is not existing anymore. 3. Wifi is horrible, only steady in the lobby. 4. On the internet page they dont state that the swimming pool is closed starting october! And we booked that hotel because of the pool. 5. The sink was saturated. I had to fill it with a lot of water, in order for water to go through. Positive: 1. friendly people 2. clean place 3. central located 4. near the metro station to the airport 5. extra price for breakfast, we went somewhere else for the breakfast 6. The restaurant looks amazing though. The bar is nice. but the view isnt that good. 7. Type of guests? Business and tourist read hotel review

    The first room had a bad smoke smell but a King size bed. The room without the smoke smell was more expensive and had only a queen size bed. It had a TV, yes but the connection was rather poor. It it the kind of old style TV with a very bad reception. There was a balcony with a poor view The minibar was well equiped and the room had a safe. The bed was very noisy...

    It is like 3 minutes walking from the Station Sancts, which leads to the airport and is connected with two subway station which makes it great for moving around. To the beach is not really far away, but you gotta take the metro It is 30 minutes walking distance from Espanya square. It is not a bad area but not the best either.

    The nearest metro station is approximately 5 minutes away. There were 2 different. The airport you can take the ' ärobus' or train ride away. To the beach it is some subway stations and one must then around 10 minutes away on foot go. (metro station: barceloneta). There are restaurants nearby. Are cheap and good. In the bullring, that is now a shopping center is, there is a very good restaurant. All attractions are actually well with the underground to reach.

    At the reception everyone was very friendly. We have english and spanish spoken. Check-in went smoothly. We were a executive room for 8 €more. We declined first from. But later more to this room. Rooms were always great cleaned, and maid service were always very friendly. There was every morning a warm welcome. The restaurant team we were satisfied. The man, the room numbers noted, was very friendly. He welcomed a always very friendly. As well as the man, the breakfast buffet re-stocked, it was very hard to make everything worked smoothly and helped all immediately if he was not found.

    When we got to our room, came a gust chlorine smell against. And the next surprise was not long in coming. We had two single beds, with a dark green cover were covered. It looked very worn and old fashioned. Mattress felt as if you are on steel springs liege. It was more like a 2 star room. We decided to change the room and paid the 8 €more. This room had a double bed and was more modern and nicer. At the reception desk someone said to us, that they are mainly single beds have, only rarely double beds. Balcony was small, without furniture, but okay. Bathroom/toilet were always clean and great cleaned. Unfortunately the rooms are very noisy. You can hear the noise from the roads already. Even if someone in the adjoining room a plug plug in. If you in the next room someone is, around 3 hours early from the walkaway return home-well you alive, because you very good overhead. Air conditioning worked, but was loud.

    There's a restaurant in the 3. floor. Restaurant was desingned very modernly. Breakfast was ok. There were rolls, rouse, ham, jams, eggs, and so on. Nothing special. Tables were cleaned and it was always clean. Upstairs there is also a rooftop terrace, which we for food (snacks, evening) didn't use it.

    The hotel is in a very good location. The metro is right around the corner. In the house there is a supermarket and walking is very much attainable.

    From the hotel you will generally ignored. The reception looks a not. Only for breakfast it was from the 3. or 4. better tomorrow. Concern on arrival was the front desk, us an upgrade our room to sell. We had to inevitably make, since we otherwise two separate beds in our 'standard room' would have had. For me a rip-off, because when booking one was never pointed out.

    The breakfast was okay. Every day there was a large selection of different dishes. And from the 3. or 4. day was the service ok.

    In the room was everything available. Only the air conditioning was mid april with over 20 degrees outside in heizmodus. Our room was thus the stickigste place in Barcelona during our stay. Furthermore, i have on any trip for a safe have to pay. Here costs the safe 1,50 Euro per day. At least was wifi free of charge! The size of the bathroom is sufficient. However, you can not really walk on the toilet seated, as right next to the toilet seat two toilet paper holder are installed. To use the bidet you also acrobat are! The shower is also a wahrliches adventure. There is only a short glass wall before the duschgarnitur. The rest is open. For me (1.97 metres large and well built) a thing of the impossibility of a ' mess' in the bathroom to avoid and comfortable to shower.
