          Good location. Well appointed room. Free internet in room.

          Staff seemed too busy to be helpful. Daily room after first day was minimal.

          9.0

          convenient location, just a few blocks off major shopping and reustarant areas nice rooms reasonably quiet despite facing busy street crossing helpful staff -- concierge recommendations for dinners out were superb

          buffet breakfast is ok, but not up to the level of other 4* hotels no cooked food option

        • Family with children
          8.8

          Good location for sightseeing. We could go many famous places on foot.

          Parking fee was expensive.

          Location! Location! The hotel is a very modern, hi-tech one, situated on top of the main Railway and Metro station, Estacio Barcelona Sant. Staff were extremely helpful/friendly....very approachable:-). Free wi-fi all over the hotel, as advertised. We only stayed one night here after arriving at Reus Airport because the bus took us directly from Reus to B. Sant (one hour and a half journey) and we had immediate access to trains/buses/metro, to anywhere else in Barcelona. Room was extremely comfortable, perfect air-conditioning, no noise from the streets or rooms beside us, beautiful, well stocked bathroom. We didn't eat here, so have no idea what the food was like. We used the metro to go to Catalunya/Ramblas/Pl. Espana etc and had some very tasty, inexpensive meals on streets off the Ramblas. The T10 tickets for the metro were much better value than buying individual tickets for 2e each, for each journey. Wonderful stay here, would definitely return here. Beautiful park and Gaudi's Dragon just to the left as you leave the hotel. Thank you to the hotel staff for being so helpful, as we hadn't a word of Spanish.

          8.2

          Location is great, a short walk (10mins) from the hustle and bustle of La Ramblas, yet far enough away to be relaxed and relatively quiet. The quality of hotel accomodation is very good, the rooms are modern and spacious, and the roof terrace is a great place to have a beer and read the newspaper, or plan your excursions.

          We opted out of breakfast as it seemed over-priced at 14 euros per person. There is a great cercveseria about 100yds down the road which offers great food and breakfast for a fraction of the price, and you get to mix it up with the locals. Prices on the roof terrace are pretty hefty too and food wasn't brilliant but you're paying for the pleasant surroundings and privacy of the roof terrace I guess.

        • Couple
          9.2

          Nice rooms, good price

          Parking was full, as they told though there are a couple public parkings around. And still I think 25eur per day is a bit too much

        • Single
          9.6

          An excellent hotel! The next trip to Barcelona Center Hotel will choose

          Breakfast in the room with no windows! If breakfast was carried out on the terrace would be great!

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Complimentary wi-fi, very helpful and friendly staff, clean rooms, roof terrace was good for catching up on sunbathing if you can't make it to the beach and a great location.

          Sometimes the drains would make loud noises early in the morning but this was resolved if I turned tap on briefly. Was woken up once by other noisy guests slamming doors (not the hotels fault but walls were a little thinner than I thought).

        • Couple
          8.2

          the staff were approachable and the hotel was spotlessly clean, would staff again.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Good location, spacious room, excellent storage space, comfortable bed, clean and modern facilities..Quiet.

          Dirty carpet in room. Needs to be cleaned or replaced.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          The room was comfortable with plenty of room and it was clean.

        • Couple
          7.4

          The hotel was central but not right in the tourist hub ans reasonably priced for the location. Breakfast at 16 Euros was overpriced but we did enjoy our stay.The reception staff was knowledgable and helpful.

          Breakfast too pricey.

        • Single
          8.2

          Location, Service by Staff, Restaurant is ok. Nice facilities (hottub, fitness, although i did not have the time to you use it.)

          As in almost every hotel: - showerhead attachment was kinda sucky - Some of the lights, that should look "luxe" were not working (for example the dimmed light in the closets, above the mirror, etc..)
