Would Visit Again
+: The shower was excellent. The 24/7 staff was helpful, kind, and spoke English. The beds were comfortable and clean. Good price, good location. -: Not having an iron/board in the room was kind of a drag, especially for a 4star. The room had no accessible safe.

4/10 Fair

The place is nice and central in the gothic quarter. We lost a passport and could not leave Italy to make it there for our first night. I contacted Expedia as soon as I knew so they could contact the hotel. They still made us pay full price for that night. I get it, we didn’t show up and had a reservation. But, it was a very unusual situation and it would have been appreciated if they had given us a break after having dealt with this. Disappointing.

10/10 Exceptional

The location is unmatched! Quick walk to the metro, the beach, La Rambla, Gothic quarter… so many things. The room had a good amount of space and we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the bathroom. We had a small balcony which was a fun way to feel the city. We booked this hotel at the last minute after our other accommodations fell through, and it was truly remarkable how great it ended up being.
