Great location, affordable rates Mar 30, 2013
This was great value for the rates being offered. The hotel was very close to the Glories stop on the Red Line and the amazing Agbar Tower. In fact, I had an amazing view of it from my hotel room. I was also able to see La Sagrada Familia and that portion of the Barcelona skyline from my room. The amenities were great and there was a built-in international outlet in the safe where you can charge all your electronics, regardless of where you're coming from - very convenient. The Internet was tricky, you actually have to pay 13 euro for full access to it. They offer you a lower grade option for free which only allows you to browse select websites, mostly generic email. Apart from this, it was a great deal, good neighborhood and right next door to a large mall and there is a small cafe next door which stays open really late.

well priced, well located and comfortable Mar 14, 2011
the hotel is based in a new district close to Sagrada Familia (short walk) and very close to a metro station. Tram is also near there, but less useful than metro. Across the street you have a large shopping center with small shops and a supermarket. There are prentiful cafes around the hotel for breakfast outside of it.

The hotel is good value for the money and will contribute enjoying your stay in Barcelona.

Ultra modern, but not centrally located Apr 19, 2009
This hotel has a modern look at every turn. This means a lot of interesting furniture and decoration that is not always functional or comfortable. The lobby looks more like a night club, especially the bar area. The hallways to the rooms are totally black and are only lit by the neon room numbers. The width of the hall also undulates. This combination must make for an interesting walk when if you are drunk.

My room was quite large for the price. A portion of the room projected from main face of the building making the room about 50% larger than the standard room. There were windows on either side of the projected portion with motorized roll-up blinds on each side. This gives you two different viewing directions.

The bathroom was all glass including the shower. If you stay with a friend or a non-intimate relative, you may need to leave the room while the other is showering if either of you are the shy type.

The Piano Restaurant serves a decent, but rather expensive buffet breakfast. A shopping mall is located across the street.

The hotel is located near the Glories circle right next to Torre Agbar. This makes it easy to get your bearings or know whether your taxi is going the right direction. The hotel is located away from the main tourist destinations in the city, but it's only a one mile walk down Avinguda Meridiana to Parc de la Ciutadella. The tram line also runs right down this street.
