This was my first time trip to the beautiful city of Barcelona. The location of the hotel gave me achance to truly get to know the city. It's located in a little side street of Las Ramblas- close enough to all the business but still secluded enough to be able to sleep ;) The hotel itself is I believe a... More

This hotel is right around the corner from Las Ramblas which means you're in the middle of shops, restaurants, but most of all tourists! It's a great location for a first visit as you're walking distance from most sightseeing spots. It is very clean, safe and the staff is friendly enough though they didn't necessarily go out of their way... More

This hotel is great, Jone and Boris at the front desk were extremely helpful whenever we had questions. They were changing their system when we got there but they had American movies available in English which was so AMAZING!

Just steps away from the Ramblas and train. We shared a deluxe room that was small but quite clean with all the amenities.The furnishings were not worn or outdated. We did not use the pool or restaurants. Free wifi was greatly appreciated and helped us plan our activities. A machine in the room to brew coffee would have been nice....but... More

The bed and bedding are very comfortable; the room is clean and good light and the bathroom has room for your toiletries under the sink and places to hang a clothes line if you wish to wash and dry clothes.

Ok, truth is I first stayed in this fabulous hotel nearly 20 years ago, when the famous Las Ramblas Opera House 'lady of the night' still ran her business from the front of the Opera House right on Las Ramblas (people who know Barcelona well will know who I mean!). The hotel was crumbling back then, and the plumbing didn't... More

A friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed the stay very much. The hotel is in an area right off of La Rambla, so this is a touristy area and the streets will be packed no matter what time of day or night it is. However, the hotel remains quiet and easy to sleep in (the beds... More
