If you have done Koh Sahn Road, Bangkok, you would know this type of place. A rabbit warren of rooms, singles without windows, doors that won't close, fans that sound like 747s landing, hotter than hell, prostitutes outside. But hey, I needed a bolt-hole between arriving by plane and leaving by train, I have been to Barcelona lots already and... More

This is one of most charming hotels I've ever been. Yes, you need earplugs because of noise, but there you can feel true Barcelona's spirit. Moreover, at night you can see lot of true spanish love dramas below your narrow balcony in narrow street (connecting to Rambla). One thing - if you never listen rock music, never want anarchy in...

This is by far the most unimaginable dump of a “hotel” I have ever had the misfortune of staying in. And it pretty much spoilt my stay in Barcelona, a city I have visited numerous times. Had to change rooms as the shower on the top floor didn’t work so I guess that made just one working shower for the... More

Stayed for two nights before a cruise. Ten minutes leisurely walk dragging a luggage to the Port Shuttle stop via the La Rambla walk. Third floor Reception office and rooms, no elevator. No breakfast. Clean sheets, towel and community washrooms. Free room WIFI. I didn't expect a 3 or 4 star hotel for a 15 euro per night room. For... More

What can I say? I paid on arrival then when I was shown my room I burst into tears. I say room, more like cell. The rickety old door could be opened from outside without the key! Luckily inside was a bolt and a safe. I had a balcony but the doors neither opened or shut. Not that I wanted... More

Never stay at this hostel!! My girlfriend and I were on a tight budget and were happy to stay in hostels throughout our 2 week trip throughout Europe. We booked out of this place and into a hotel within an hour. I cannot say anything good about this place apart from the location on la rambla, which also is a... More

First things first. Great location, honestly couldn't ask for better. Picasso was clean, if a little rundown, and the staff were friendly. Price is fairly tops too. However, (and what a however!) the alley next to the rooms is home to a busy, noisy bar that is open until the street cleaners turn up for a mornings work, and the... More
