Room was ready at 12 midday! Excellent check in process. Spotlessly clean room and couldn't get a better location. Juliette balcony overlooking las ramblas. Lively at night so bring ear plugs but so much fun. Would come back here anyday. Can't believe it's only 2 stars. More like a 3+

Stayed here for four nights at the beginning of the year. Hotel is clean, comfortable and has everything you need. Location is fantastic for exploring Barcelona, especially the old town. Great value for a central location. Breakfast is simple, standard continental buffet with everything you need. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for three nights. First time in Barcelona Very good tourist position in Gothic Quarter. Lots to see and do in this area close to Ramblas. Very friendly staff with good restaurant suggestions made our stay enjoyable. Good buffet breakfast on lower level. Would stay again.
