    This place sucks getting in. They if you have any bags or open shoes they will not let you in. They are entirely unhelpful and act stuck up. Not worth the trouble.

    Very Nice hotel, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, nice view, amazing shower rain forest style, breakfast is good and burgers. The only thing, door toilet in the room is sort of transparent.

    Seriously good quality poolside food. Not a huge amount of options though. Great rooms, all with great views. Good vibe around the hotel. When ordering room service, take no notice of the times.

    Everything is perfect in this hostel. Except for their poor housekeeping. But if I ever gonna visit Barcelona again, I'm gonna stay at this hotel with no doubts.

    Amaizing views from rooms and great terrace bar. Nice nightclub at 21th floor

    Spectacular hotel next to Barceloneta beach. The only negative thing is that the lobby is crowded and it seems to be in a department store. The breakfast is excellent and the rooms have a great view.l

    Even if you are not a guest of the hotel, get an appointment at Bliss Spa for your hands and feet to enjoy a blissful moment

    Great service and rooms. The only downside was that the pool was always too crowded.
