Booked this hotel because of it's traditional appearance and it's location and we were not disappointed. The furniture and décor are charming and the staff were welcoming and helpful. A good continental-style breakfast. Our room was quite small and faced on to walls around a dark courtyard but we weren't there for the view from the hotel. Our only minor... More

Stayed at this hotel 4 times over a number of years. Always found the staff very nice an helpful an the rooms very clean an well taken care of. Yes it's old fashioned but that's it's charm. If you want a generic faceless room go stay at holiday inn. It's location is great an it's an ideal base to explore.... More

The room we were given was very old, very small, dark with furniture that was weatherbeaten. We could barely move and had little room for our suitcases. the front desk people were very unaccommodating. They could not even open the front door for use even though we were carrying large suitcases and we are very senior citizens. There was no... More

This was my second time staying at this hotel. I had stayed there 15 years ago. It has not changed in 15 years (decor is still the same). I actually think that it has not changed in 50 years. There are 2 reasons why I would not stay. First, although location is close to Ramblas, it is on the wrong... More

This was a homely sort of cosy hotel. Carved wood and rustic painted furniture. The room and en suite was very cosy: mini bar, TV and air conditioned. Fine if you don't mind sidling round the bed and do not want to look out of the window. No idea what level of room we had, but realised as we glanced... More

Having travelled in 7 continents (yes, including Antarctica), I can't recommend this little hotel too highly -- for its ideal central location, utterly delightful decor, spotless cleanliness throughout, excellent service. We were 5 in grown-up family, had a 'suite' of 3 rooms at the back, 2 of which had balconies, and my spacious single had a large double bed; bathrooms... More

Just back from an amazing break in Barcelona. Booked this hotel through British airway package and It is a very quaint hotel reminiscent of a bygone era, furnished in a typical Spanish hotel of years ago, but it is well kept and spotlessly clean, comfy beds and sheets and towels changed daily. We were in a room at the front... More

This hotel was a little gem located a 5 minute stroll away from the famous La Ramblas which is the centre of the Barcelona action. We were a little worried about staying here because of Its 2 star rating but were pleasantly surprised by the size of the hotel and the convenience of the area. The interior decor is a... More
