Very nice hotel with swimming pool on the roof top. There is a restaurant with cery simple breakfast. The rooms are too small for two people. On every floor there is a big kitchen so you can prepare your own food. The nearest metro is about 15 minutes walk.

I've just come back from Barcelona and stayed here with a friend. Having read a few reviews we were a bit worried about the size of the rooms but ours was fine; it was quite small but that didn't really matter as we were out all day. Everywhere was clean and the staff at the reception were really helpful, giving... More

It's a Cool one & the staff are descent! I liked its mood as an interior Architect and a visitor! even I wished to have such a small orientation about its services to get my best use of it... also their staff were elegant in giving you all the needed help as much as they can :)

During my trip to Barcelona my boyfriend and I stayed at the Melon District hotel. Yes it is a dorm turned hotel and let me tell you this is not a lie. I was pretty disappointed that they charge the same amount a standard hotel would charge but for a tiny room. Not to mention they dont clean your room... More

We spent a few hours sunning it up on the roof during the day. Its not at all far from the beach/park/centre and we walked everywhere and managed to find... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and we're glad to say that it was very comfortable! Of course we knew it would be a student dorm turned hotel, so we were not surprised by the rather small size of the room. It was very nice and clean however, and we really enjoyed it. Then again, we are students ourselves, and... More

The staff at the reception is very nice and they speak good English. You have access to the roof pool (D building) and it;s awesome because you can see Sagrada Familia from there. As for the room , we booked a standard room for 2 adults. It is surprinsingly small but it's modern and clean. They don't change your towels,... More

This is basically a student hotel with rooms big enough for a comfortable stay. The shower area is a bit small and the shower curtains sticks to you when you shower. The cafe serves food throughout the day but I would recommend taking a short walk outside to look for other cafe that serves the same food at a cheaper... More

The rooms are really small, because it's student accommodation building. Rooms are usually okay for single person, but not much space for two. There is no hair dryer, no cleaning service and the hotel is based in not the best area of the city. anyway its not far from metro station and short walking distance from barcelona centre and beach....
