Well located, very practical base to explore Barcelona

This is a straightforward hotel in many ways, boxy design, boxy rooms and no obvious charm or character but this more than offset by its honest virtues. It is very well located next to the Parallel metro station, a short walk from both the Playa de Catalunya with the magic fountain and feom the funicular which whisks you up to the bosky viewpoints and gardens of Montjuic. Moreover, the staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfasts are excellent, with lots of choice and everything fresh and wholesome. Rooms are not huge but they are very clean and functional, with very comfortable beds. We happened to get upgraded to a Superior - anything smaller might have felt tight.

A great hotel for your Barcelona trip

I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. The reception staff were very kind, helpful and friendly. I had a superior double room which was very spacious and comfortable. The hotel was very conveniently located for sightseeing. The area felt very safe for a solo female traveler.


What a fantastic hotel, very central, close to the metro so you can get about town, walking distance to La Rambla’s.
Extremely friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. Dennis in the restaurant was superb, giving ideas of where to go and what to do.
Best hotel breakfast I’ve ever had.
Would 100% recommend this hotel. Stayed for 2 nights, as a couple.
