The apartment was very well located....right across the street from the beach! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful towards everything. I loved the apartment amenities and would definitely return.
Via Laietana runs through the centre of Barcelona and the hotel is within 2 minutes walking distance of Jaime 1 Metro station. Easily accessible from the airport via train and then transfer to metro.
Positives (lots of them)
Left out of the hotel and a few hundred yards up the road is the Cathedral. You can walk to La Rambla within 5-10 mins through some nice/safe side streets. From there you can walk to Plaza Catalunya at the top of La Rambla and then Plaza Espanyol within 45 mins. Al the key city centre toursist spots and bars are that close.
Turn right out of the hotel and within five mins you're at the Marina, another 5-10 mins and you've walked to the beach. Beautiful coast line with wide open spaces if you like the view but don't want to venture onto the beach. The beach runs for a couple of miles with plenty of quiet spots.
The Picasso gallery is a few minutes from the hotel (down one of the side streerts opposite it).
Dunnes Irish bar is next door (cheap food/drink with friendly staff and sport on TV. A small convenience store is also a few doors down the road.
Whilst it's a busy road the noise was never a problem (I had an inside room with no view of the main road - not sure if this would have been an issue with a room on the main street.
Negatives (very few)
Expedia advertised massages were available but this wasn't the case (my back needed one after a delayed flight)
Beds were quite hard and pillows too soft.
Every room with a view of the Mediterranean. Very modern and spotlessly clean. This smallish hotel is a real gem. Its only 15 minutes from the airport at about 20 Euros. Although I never did find their restaurant, room service was both good and very quick. As a desert dweller, its a nice change to get sand between your toes and have the ocean waves lull you to sleep.
We received a warm welcome and a glass of bubbly on arrival. We were then taken to our room by Jordi, one of the reception staff and shown how things operated. Jordi took the trouble to advise us on local restaurants and how to get around Barcelona and what attractions were worth visiting. We would go back to Barcelona and this particular hotel.
Really nice hotel with friendly staff and a stones throw from the beach. The room was perfectly cleaned each day. We were also allowed access to the computer to print tickets we had booked online. The pool was small but as the hotel doesn't have a huge amount of rooms it never felt over crowded. My only issue was that the beds were two singles put together but that was a small problem and didn't ruin the experience. It was nice to stay out of busy Barcelona and have the option to relax or get the train into the town centre to see the sites. We would stay here again.
Close to the beach and with great transport links to Barcelona. Nice peaceful setting, less than 5 minute walk to the beach and seafront restaurants. The pool was very clean and quiet, staff were friendly and helpful.
A 45 minute bus journey to Barcelona centre was easy and trouble free. A great place to stay if you want a mix of seaside and the city.
