    Superb

    The location is perfect. Staffs are nice and efficient. snacks bar is very convenient. The room has a bacolny facing La Lumbla, which has a very pleasant view. We love this hotel.

    The coffee machine is out of order in the breakfast time. But they managed to fixed it up after a few hours.

    Superb

    Liked the convenience to Las Ramblas. However, balcony room was still very noisy. My husband loved having unlimited beer & wine. The buffet was adequate, but not a great selection. Had internet for customer use. Very pleasant, helpful reception staff.

    Very hard bed. Too many buttons to operate everything in the room, that were explained to us in Spanish, which we do not understand.

    The location is excellent and if you can ignore the pink interior, the extras you get are well worth staying here. While the food on the bar is not gourmet, it is certainly substantial. Every morning breakfast-type items were put out and all day there were refreshed pastas,tapas and snacks. My hubby said the free beer on tap and the coffee/espresso/cappuccino machine alone was worth the cost of staying here and the back garden area was like having an outdoor cafe. I would however recommend getting a balcony room for the sheer joy of people watching. We did, and it was the icing on the cake! :-)

    You have to get used to sticking your room key in a slot by the door to keep the electricity on. This means you can not leave the room and keep electronics charged up because the "greening" of the place means the electricity turns off every time you leave the room. While I can appreciate these cost-saving measures, it can be annoying at times. (Fair warning...)

    The room had a balcony overlooking the Ramblas and as a location next to Catalunya square and metro entrance you could not get better. The included all day buffet - including beer & wine - is a brilliant idea.

    The room was decorated in a rather Barbara Cartland style in pink - but we could live with that, and it wont stop us going back..

    Breakfast includes ice cream and wine. And it is 24 hours a day. Girl Vivien at the desk was very cute.

    Everything was perfect.

    Very good

    First time in Barcelona. Location is awesome. Bus from the airport is just few minutes walk. Hop-on-hop-off bus is just right there. Hotel is on the middle of everything. Shopping,eating,site seeing-everything is near. Food 24/7. Very good fruit selection. Fresh oranges (delicious),pineapple,kiwi,grapes,apples. Wine,beer,ice cream -any time of the day. Very helpful front desk. Bathroom is big and it seems to be ok by european standards. There is a lot variety in the drinks and it is delicious. The buffet option is very economical for those with a tight budget.

    Decoration is little bit outdated.Room with pink walls , pink chairs, pink bed,pink everything. Bed is high and hard,but is manageable. The whole room smells funny, but you get used to it after a couple days or so. The breakfast selection could be better because there is basically no difference between the breakfast and the normal buffet food available 24/7. The hotel towels feel like sand paper against the skin, and they are also way too pink.

    1. The location. 2. The lounge by the reception looked OK. 3. 24 hour access to breakfast.

    1. It is one of three hotels in the same building so you had to go up a small elevator to get to the reception. Many security checks. The only way you can get into reception was to use the hall phone and dial 9. 2. The room was tiny. 3. The room was painted pink...including walls, ceiling and fan. 4. The furniture was cheap and old. The drawers were plastic bins. 5. The hallways had dark wallpaper and felt creepy.

    The staff , location and room were excellent Very close to the metro and walking distance to the airport bus On the ramble with all the stores you need

    It was nice to have a buffet and drinks 24 hours a day but the same food was served for breakfast I would add cheese and yogurts at least from 6 to 11 a.m for breakfast

    We had a balcony overlooking Las Ramblas It was fun sitting at the little table with our coffee or cocktail and watching the action down below. There were snacks and free wine available in the lobby.

    Fabulous

    very central for all transport links, tourist venues, waterside, las ramblas. High comfort, but quirky, food and drink available all day and night, free wifi, fridge and microwave in room. Very comfortable bed. Everything you need for a city break.

    We paid extra for room overlooking Las Ramblas but the noise overnight was dreadful despite double glazing which meant very disturbed nights. It continued all night with very rowdy behaviour, so beware, not at all good if you are a light sleeper. Sometimes the food available was much depleted and not a vast selection.
