DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR TIME! This place is disgusting. The shared kitchen is horrific. I only stayed here because my work put me up here. Had I been allowed to choose, I would have chosen ANY other place. The staff is rude. When the staff "cleans" the room, they only change the sheets. This is hands down the... More

We are really sorry to don't get yours expectations. Melon District Marina is a Student Residence which offers rooms for short stays too. For these reason our rates are cheaper than a hotel and many services are optionals. Standard rooms are 12 sq. m. and studios are bigger, also available to have a more confortable stay. We are tremendtly sorry... More

Rooms were clean and airconditioned, staff were very helpful, and the price is reasonable. To top it off, they have a swimming pool at the roof of each block which is very handy in the summer. Make sure you use the pool in Block A as you get an amazing panoramic view of Barcelona! Would definately recommend this place to... More

Stayed twice now here and it's always been clean and the staff are super helpful. It's situated in a great place if you are just visiting. If you are coming for Primavera it's perfect as the tram stop is very close and easy to get to El Forum. The rooftop pool just adds something special to it for a reasonably... More

very quiet, safe (special safe entrance), perfect location (next to tram, metro, taxis and bus station) and reception helpful 24h. the only drawback is that the pool was not very clean, and there were few chairs to sit there.

If you love walking then u can find beach in 15 min walking distance. la sagrada familia was just 30 min walk. If u got map on... More

The room & bathroom were very small - I was on my own so that was OK. For two it would be a squeeze. The room was modern but basic - not much character. There is a fair bit of noise outside but my window had double glazing and shut out 90% of the noise. The air conditioner seemed to... More

Everything was great ... The people of the hotel were nice, the room is just what we needed and the possibility to use the kitchen on each floor is a plus. The swimming pools on the roofs are not olympic ones but they are really useful when the sun shines like in Barcelona, It's a great place where i will... More

Total joke. Yes the rooms are clean but they are considerably smaller than they look in the pictures. The wifi is intermittent at the best of times. But importantly they think it's acceptable to have a cinema beneath your window at full blast at half eleven at night, and won't do anything about it when you complain twice. AVOID LIKE... More

Good budget accommodation but not suitable for anyone over the age of 25. Noise from party goers till about 4 then building work starts at around 7 even on a weekend so don't expect more then 3 hrs sleep if your a light sleeper.
