Expert review of Hotel Jazz

A smart, high-design mid-range a stone's throw from Plaça Catalunya.

Centrally located at the convergence of the Raval, Barri Gòtic and Eixample neighbourhoods, the Hotel Jazz punches above its three-star weight with a rooftop pool and terrace, huge beds and free WiFi throughout.

Location: 

Just off the Plaça Catalunya, the Hotel Jazz is certainly central, though its situation directly above the metro line can make for a noisy night.

Bedrooms: 

As the name perhaps suggests, greys, black and pinstripes prevail in the colour schemes, but sharp design keeps the aesthetic upbeat, with giant room numbers painted on the doors and chic, charcoal-tiled bathrooms. There are triple rooms for friends or families and the Jazz Corner suites can also accommodate three people. These latter have views on two sides, and separate sitting and sleeping areas. The metro runs directly underneath the hotel, so if you're a light sleeper I'd ask for a room on one of the higher floors.

Public areas: 

At the back of the lobby is a cheerful seating area, with dapper striped cushions on comfortable sofas, but most guests will spend their time hanging out on the rooftop terrace.

Eating and drinking: 

Opinions are divided on whether the buffet breakfast is worth it - I'd say it's not bad if you're feeling lazy, but there are stacks of cafés hereabouts if you're feeling more energetic.

Leisure facilities: 

No gym, but the rooftop pool is a gem - long enough to swim in, good views and with plenty of loungers.

Service: 

Reception staff are able to answer most queries about the city, and you'll rarely need to queue.

The buffet breakfast is not included, and costs 14.50 euros.

Pros: 
Great pool
Central
Cons: 
Masculine decor not for everyone
Some metro noise
