This hotel is exactly what I needed for a temporary stay. In the heart of el born, with many famous shops and restaurants in close proximity. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond to make the stay as best as possible. I would recommend staying here to anyone traveling to Barcelona. Overall great experience!

This hotel is in a perfect location. There is a metro stop within 5 minutes walking from the hotel, and Plaça de Catalunya is a 15 minute walk. There are lots of cute bakeries, gelato shops, etc on the same street and the Picasso Museum is right around the corner. Everything in the room was new looking and very clean. However, the mattress was very uncomfortable. It would maybe be alright for a night or two, but not for more. If I came back to Barcelona, I would absolutely book this hotel again if they got better mattresses but would probably look somewhere else if it was a longer stay. Pros: Location, cleanliness, room was spacious, room has a balcony, free water bottles in a fridge in the hall, rooftop pool, staff speaks English Cons: Bed was really uncomfortable (super hard mattress), room smelled slightly of fresh paint, no fridge in the room, noise from street can be an issue if you are a light sleeper but wasn't a big problem for us

The location is great for sight seeing, many things within walking distance and lots of Places to eat and bakeries ect right outside. The downside while modern in design the rooms are not comfortable, hard mattress and chairs so nowhere to relax after a long day walking, that said ok for a few days stay. Tea and coffee or kettle in room would be a real bonus. Free bottles of water a nice touch and WiFi was good
