This hotel falls far short of its 4-star rating, and I'd strongly advise avoiding it. On the positive side, the rooms are spacious, but that's because they lack furniture entirely. The cleanliness is decent, and there's a supermarket nearby along with a few good cafes within a 5-minute walk. However, the negatives outweigh the positives. The rooms lack essential furniture like closets or drawers to store clothing properly. The safe placement under the bathroom sink raises concerns about moisture and water damage. The breakfast is extremely basic, offering the bare minimum. To make matters worse, the hotel charged a steep 3 euros for a small bottle of water when it costs significantly less at the nearby supermarket. The non-functional room phone is another inconvenience, as guests must visit reception for any requests. One of my colleagues had a terrible experience with water dripping from the ceiling, and the hotel staff's response was disappointing. They refused to change his room and suggested he simply open a window to deal with the smell. The hotel's location isn't ideal for expos at Fira, requiring a 15-minute walk. There isn't much else to see or do nearby, and the terrace appeared deserted during my visit.

We stayed at this hotel due to the price and location.|It's certainly not at 4☆, quality.|There is no fridge in the rooms, no kettle or tea / coffee making facility.|The deluxe single room is like a cupboard, and I had booked a double room, which turned out to be 2 singles! The TV can only be watched by one person at a time.|Room was clean and tidy for sure.|No USB ports for phone etc. |Staff pleasant enough and breakfast was ok for 12 euros.|The cost of both rooms for 2 nights totalled £678.|Only book if every other hotel in Barcelona is fully booked.|The decor in public areas was tatty, couldn't get a drink on arrival as bar was shut at 2330.|Staff were not interested in offering any discount for the room error of a single not a double they stated I should of requested a double bed! Thought I had by booking a double.
