The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and the beds are nice and soft. The metro station is just around the corner where metro line 1 brings you directly to the city center. We left everyday pretty late in the morning and every time we came back the room was cleaned and looked nice. The patio is small but... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience. For the price we pay, we can't complain. Rooms were small but very clean and towels get changed every day. Better than many 4* hotels we stayed before. For the improvement: Tea/coffee facility in the room would be good. There wasn't a space but a small fridge felt essential. I... More

We stayed here for two nights after coming in on the train before flying out from Barcelona. Situated in a funky, local neighborhood and not even a 5 minute walk to Placa de Sants Metro station (conveniently on the red line).

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this hotel, just for a quick stopover before travelling further south the next day. So all we really needed was a bed and a bathroom - and we got just that! The room was a decent size, clean and quiet with a comfy bed and a very good shower. Nice to have... More

Small room, budget price, very clean and comfortable. Bed may be a bit hard for some, but not a real issue for me. Helpful pleasant staff. Coffee maker in lobby which was nice, didn't do breakfast so can't comment. Easy ten minute walk from Sants train station. Neighborhood was fine, but hotel is not real close to major sights. We...

The rooms are very basic with limited storage space we struggled with our small bags. Had a booked a room with... More

Very good location,clean and very helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again, easy access to metro line and buses. There's a great little bar just down the road where you can get a pint for €1.50 which is very very cheap, can't remember the name of it but it's on the main street. The area is pretty cheap to eat... More

GREAT for a short break. The hotel was clean, staff were polite, caring and helpful (especially Maria) the location is great because it's a 4 minute walk from Place De Sants metro station. Live and dream is also a 15 minute walk from the Nou camp. I loved it, i wouldn't mind taking those beds back with me because they... More

Visited here again for 5 nights. A great base to visit Barcelona on a budget. 5 minutes walk from the metro station which takes you directly into the centre. Lovely friendly and welcoming staff who all speak very good English. Small rooms but very comfortable beds and powerful showers. Rooms cleaned and fresh towels daily. Would highly recommend it.
