Not very impressive four stars

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 17, 2006

We were a group of 18 booked in advance. It took staff more than an hour to check us in!

Some of the rooms (2nd floor) were great with terraces at the back. Others were crap with a window looking over a wall barely 50cms from the window.

The pool on the roof was good but very small and freezing cold (in early October) and there's only 5 or 6 loungers for a hotel with hundreds of rooms.

Unique Quality: Pool if you like cold water.
Clean.
Great tapas bar a few doors on the left.

Beware: carrer del Pau between the hotel and la Rambla is very seedy at night. El Nou de la Rambla is a bit more respectable.

Directions: Right outside metro station Paral. lel on the green line

City Hotel with a Pool on Roof

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2004

Barcelona Universal is about 7 min walk from la Rambla, if you can’t b bothered to walk then its really easy to get there by metro as well, stop (Paral-lel) is in front of the hotel.
Our room was rather spacious and had air conditioning, very handy in 30C!
Hotel is next to a big road but windows are rather sound proof so the noise wont disturbs your beauty sleep.

Unique Quality: Hotel has a pool on the roof. Very cool! And you get a great view over the city and see some pretty original rooftops where locals hang out.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
All in all a very pleasant stay and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.
