For the money great value and in a good location near Beach and poblenou ramblas which is busy at... More

The staff is nice, the breakfast is good, the hot is clean. Walk NE for two blocks and you are in a wonderful street in Pablenou. There is a grocery store the with reasonable prices. Walk four blocks towards he sea and you are there dipping your toes in it! Metro stop is only two blocks away as well.

for the price we paid the hotel is great the breakfast is good and fast the only thing that I would add is some signs to show the direction to the hotel from the metro as most of the streets are all the same The best way is to use the Liacuna metro

We chose this hotel mainly because of the price. The neighbourhood is quiet. The nearest Metro is 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The breakfast was poor, the room was small, and paid WiFi is rare nowadays. Not recommended.

We stayed here for 3 nights prior to our Mediterranean Cruise in June 2014. The location is a little far from the tourists spots in Barcelona. However, there are 2 metro stops a short walk away (Llacuna and Poblenou) which was convenient for sightseeing. We had no difficulty with accessing the Barcelona sites using the metro. Accommodation is quite basic..but... More
