Excellent hotel

Posted 12-May-2014
We stayed at the hotel because it was close to the conference venue I was attending. The hotel offered all you could ask for. Within 5 mins walk of the metro station and the train would take about 20 mins to the centre of the city. Also close to the Nou Camp for football buffs.

Centrally located

Posted 28-Apr-2014
Pros: Location. Friendly staff who were wiling to help. The room size and overall comfort.
Location: Shopping centre, metro is walk up the road, Barcelona football club, University, David Lloyd club
Beautiful hotel, close to the city, shopping centre, Barcelona football club & metro. Very clean and peaceful. We had a suite which was very spacious, comfy beds and fresh linen everyday. The buffet breakfast was excellent and staff very friendly and welcoming. They even have a kids play area with swings and slides, and the gardens are lush. One must got and see the lovely swans. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Short 2 night stay to watch F.C Barcelona

Posted 23-Apr-2014
Pros: This hotel was very plush, modern and extremely clean. The room I had was very spacious and had brilliant views over the city and of camp nou.
Cons: More smiles please, casual travellers like myself can be put off easily. With Camp Nou next door its a big market to disappoint.
Location: The hotel was really easy to find using the metro. All I was interested in was the camp nou which was basically round the corner (perfect!).j
Having selected this hotel purely on the basis of being close to the camp nou (10-15 mins walk which was perfect) and the price on offer I was very pleased in my choice. First impressions were good. A very imposing/stylish contemporary hotel which is very obviously aiming towards International Business Conferences & high end clients. This leads to my only negative which was I sometimes felt like a black sheep. For business clients and families this hotel is perfect. For the laid back average joe its a little OTT. Saying that....being a five star hotel, I should never of felt like that. Athletic Club Bilbao were actually present in the hotel at the time I was there so I forgive the doorman for confronting me on whether I was staying there or not, he was merely doing his job. Overall pleasant enough stay taking into account small negatives.

Conference Hotel

Posted 05-Apr-2014
Pros: clean & decent rooms
Location: See an FC Barcelona game
I attended a conference at this hotel. It's very large and to far away from main attractions except the FC Barcelona stadium which is walk able. The concierge was able to get me amazing seats for the Barcelona-Altleico Madrid Champions league game which made my trip. I would not stay here as a tourist because of the location unless I got a good deal on a room. It was clean, staff was nice and there are plenty of taxis line up to take you into old Barcelona for 15 Euros. Concierge recommended a good restaurant Costa Gallega _ Moncho's.

Stunning hotel close to centre of Barcelona

Posted 03-Feb-2014
Pros: Attentive staff, great views of the city, large rooms and great facilities.
Cons: The hotel is definitely showing signs of age, but, nothing that couldn't be sorted out quickly. Just get someone in to quality check.
Location: Bowling, ice skating, see Barcelona play football, go to Las Ramblas and visit the fantastic produce market. Eat at any number of superb restaurants.
This is my second stay here. First time was corporate about five or six years ago and it was excellent. I brought my family this time and they were blown away by it. Yes, it is showing signs of age, but, for me it's all about the " experience ". We had two lovely , adjoining rooms with great views of the superb polo club next door and the huge " Camp Nou " stadium, which we could actually see into! The hotel staff were polite and courteous and made us feel welcome. I chose this hotel again because I knew It was a five star standard without being pretentious; we would not have enjoyed such a hotel. We felt quite at home here and I'd recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Barcelona any day of the week. Taxi, bus or underground into the centre of town is about twenty minutes. This week the taxi ride for the four of us was under 15 euros; call it 15 with a small tip = nothing. We can't get a 3 mile taxi ride at home for this! The Spa is excellent as has been said many times here. The bars and restaurants are great too. Some of the criticisms I've seen here have come from people who haven't actually paid for their stay themselves. I my experience, these are the hardest ones to please. So, stay here with confidence. You'll be well looked after. I'm planning another stay in Barcelona to watch the football and go to the superb produce market on Las Ramblas. Guess where I'll be staying?

Outstanding hotel.

Posted 20-Sep-2013
Pros: The lobby, the room, the restaurants, the gym, the pools.
Cons: Prices at the lobby bar for water are a little steep. Other than that, nothing else can be improved.
Location: A little far from the action, but easy subway access.
Absolutely divine stay in Barcelona thanks to this amazing hotel. The room was very spacious for a European hotel. The design is such that noise from the lobby or hallway is imperceivable from the higher floors. Very courteous and helpful staff. Amazing pools (out door and in door) and huge gym. The breakfast buffet is impressive and the coffee delicious. I hope I have the chance to return some day!

Relaxing hotel

Posted 26-Aug-2013
Location: The hotel is a little way out of barcelona but it is on a metro line which is only a 5 minute walk away. Taxis are always available outside the hotel.
My husband and I stayed at this hotel august 2013 and had a lovely relaxing pleasent time. Room was spacious and very clean. Lobbly bar was a little haven from the sun and bluster of barcelona. Staff were exceptionally helpful.
