    “Funky hotel with great location need La Rambla”

    We chose this hotel for it's contemporary design and great location, whereas it was nearby the main areas we wanted to visit, ice were advised to be careful in the evenings and not stray off the main streets surrounding the hotel. Having said all that the hotel could not be faulted, great breakfasts and very stylish roof top bar, reception area and restaurant. Try to get a room on as high a floor as possible to maximise the views, we were on floor 8 and it was great. The rooms have a modular shower and vanity unit, so quite open plan, but everything we needed was there, would definitely return again. Taxi rank right outside, so easy to get around if you want to grab some transport either to the port area or the airport.

    “Bar with a view!”

    Stayed at the hotell for 5 days, and would come back any day. Really good, big beds and Nice clean rooms. Good breakfast and will recomend to try some tapas inn the restaurant inn the evening. The catch though, would be the pool and bar ønsker topp ofte the roof. Stunning View!

    “Ups and downs”

    First, the rooftop bar is nice, great views etc, lots of pink neon, very “cool”. The location is ok in so far as you can get to the Ramblas / Catalonia sq etc in 5 mins (although the area the vicinity of the hotel is a run down, dog poop minefield). The room itself was the biggest problem though - classic style over substance. The room was too small to start with, probably due to the cylindrical shape of the hotel - meaning the rooms have no bathroom as such - only an open plan type affair with very, very little privacy - for example the shower is totally transparent. I was staying in a twin room with my father. Not only were we sleeping in twin beds less than 5cm apart, but we had to stagger our breakfasts on a morning so as not to have to watch each other shower through the transparent shower cubical. Nice. Also, for a hotel that was presumably built in the last 5-10 years, how on earth can the sound proofing be so, so poor? Kids outside screaming and playing football until midnight amongst other things, made it very difficult to sleep. Finally, not a major gripe, but it is a feat of strength trying to open the toilet doors - a tiny little indentation from which you have to pull the heavy door. Again, style over substance. Therefore, I can’t recommend this hotel chain.

    “Little City Break”

    Visited here with the Good Lady Wife to celebrate her Birthday. First the downsides: - Considering the cost, the rooms were a little on the small side (I have a caveat to this though, in the upsides later, so don't be swayed by this statement) The TV in the room had a number of channels including some foreign ones but surprisingly no British channels, not even the BBC World Service. Reception did tend to get a little overwhelmed if there were more then 3 people waiting, please note that this is from the observations I had at the time, so it is possible it may have been unusual circumstances. The Gym was a little on the under equipped side. Upsides: - Although the room was a little on the small side, it had a quirky unusual design that made good use of the space available, and although it wasn't to my immediate taste, it did grow on me over the 2 nights of my stay. The bed was actually very comfortable and I liked it very much. The staff, although overwhelmed at times, were very very nice, and I engaged with them well. The restaurant had lovely food, and probably the best glass of Sangria that I have had anywhere. The gym, although a bit under equipped was a reasonable size and I did manage to get a reasonable workout in there. Somebody mentioned in another review that it was a long walk to Las Ramblas, but please be assured, it's not a long walk, it will take about 5 minutes. Both my Wife and I enjoyed the stay here very much

    “Beauty is only skin deep”

    Beautiful hotel, in an area with lots of character. However, MANY problems with the room - poor maintenance and only superficial cleaning. Breakfast was good, as is the bar on the top floor - wonderful views over Barcelona. However, I can't get over the poor state of the room. For that, and the poor resolution of the issues, I would not recommend the hotel.
