We have been in this hotel in July and we had a nice experience. The hotel is good, clean, classic and beautiful. Should have a better gym, a swimmingpool with warmed water, and a one star restaurant. Service is nice.

Totally recommend a stay here. Excellent location, with fabulous, opulent common areas and suburb rooms. We stayed in a junior suite, which was enormous and very comfortable. All staff we dealt with were fabulous. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Friendly staff and concierge, the rooms were clean and cool! We stayed here while traveling from Paris to San Sebastián. We booked 4 rooms for 4 nights and were treated like Royalty. The breakfast was worth paying for if you don’t get it for free....More

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
