    Very good

    Good location close to Passeig de Gracia. Easy to walk to most highpoints of the city. Nice lobby. Breakfast very good.

    High cost with upgrade & breakfast extra.Busy street- noisy on front of the building.Upgraded to exec room on back-small room with 2 single beds.Very old patio furniture.

    The hotel did not match up to information provided on the Internet. There was no free wireless and the hotel was noisy!

    Very good

    Good location, close to all tourist attractions/Gaudi works. Reception people always nice, helpful and polite

    (1) Parking the car overpriced (price of parking per day equivalent almost to car rental per day) - this is ridiculous. (2) Internet connection from the hotel totally unreliable, breaking all the time. (3) Keyboard on the guest computer downstairs should be long replaced and equipped with international layout - not Spanish.

    Superb

    The rooms were small, but very night. The shower was bigger compared to other hotels I have stayed at in Europe. The breakfast was overpriced so we got our own food every morning. The location is excellent, it's a block from the metro!
