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....

The rooms are really small (double room is 12sqm bathroom included). The bathroom is without window or air extraction system! No hair dryer. Not clean. If you want to have new towels set you need to pay for it. The breakfast is really really basic. I slept here for a week: it has been my worst experience in a hotel!!!

Melon District is a Student Residence. For this reason our rates are cheaper than a hotel and many services are optional. Standard rooms are 12 sq.m. and studios, bigger rooms, are also available. It is possible to get hairdryer, irons, umbrellas, and so on at the front desk. We are sorry for not being able to provide a suitable cleaning... More

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

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
