I had requested a quiet room at the back. Room 303 was not a quiet room but reception kindly gave me room 309 which was excellent. When I return to the hotel I will ask for a quiet room again. On checking out, I asked about why I had not been given a quiet room initially. They did not know as the request had been recorded. Anyway, all was well eventualy.
Hotel was a huge disappointment. We refused to stay after one night.
Excellent location.Value for money is ok.
Very noisy environment.Room was not protected against outside loudness as described on Booked.net Homepage. Wlan is not in the hotel! Please correct that in your hotel description! We even could not do the checkin as there is no printer abailable.
The central location was brilliant and staff very helpful.
The only problems we found with the hotel was we requested a double bed and got two singles pushed together as did a couple of other rooms by the sounds. With no carpet the beds that were a double but werent would slide across the floor upon movement. This could be heard happening from other rooms which could wake you up during the night a possible answer to this could be to insert rubber stoppers under the bed legs.
Location . It was perfect located in getting to a lot of things . Rambla street , rambla market , piaza catalunya , stop of bus from airport , start of city bus tour , shopping , restaurants near ( I might ad also a lot of good ones )
If it is in the transit period in 12-18 dgrs external do not expect to get heat in the room . Also a part of the personel ( 1 men exception ) is not prepared for having customers which demand 4 stars as they write on the internet page of booking . It is not a 4 star hotel - no bar , minibar empty , toilet an important item missing, etc . It is a fine hotel to stay , do not expect much from breakfast , i woul not rate it 4 stars maybe a 3+ . I would rate the hotel at a four star level with a 6-6,4
We enjoyed the central proximity to the old town, and the spacious lobby.
The windows to a busy street were not helpful in blocking out traffic noise, and probably dust. No internet, no international tv channels.
Overpriced. No general internet. Paid-for in lobby only. Staff dismissive Looks like it is ten years overdue for a facelift.
The location was excellent and the breakfasts were good
The room soundproofing was very poor and could here neighbours very clearly. Also the beds were very hard.
room small, security in bathroom (toilet paper not good installed), shower not good, evacuation not good, etc....
I loved its location and the breakfast was excellent.
rooms are not well enough for a 4* hotel. breakfast is so so.
Very good location, helpful staff and spacious room
The noisy lift
The only thing we liked was the relief we felt when we escaped to another hotel after a sleepless and horrible night at this place.
Everything. But more specifically, the room smelled horrible when we arrived. It was a hot day and after failing to figure out how to turn on the air conditioning (which is promised as an amenity) we asked the staff to help us. They were very rude and told us there could be no air conditioning until next month. We tried to make the room comfortable by opening the window but it was still very hot and the sounds of the city were obnoxious. This hotel should not be listed as a place to do business with on Booked.net or any other site.
Perfect for a one night stay before an early morning flight
Only stayed for one night and didn't really find anything that overly annoyed me
location - everything we wanted to see was within walking distance
room rates were too high one of the receptionists was not at all cooperative...
