Nice location, nice staff, but the hotel needs some updates. The bathroom had visible mold and the bed was rock hard. Very uncomfortable. The shower had great pressure and housekeeping was prompt. Breakfast was bland but serviceable. for longer trips it would get old fast. Street noise is ever present.

The location is ideal just off Carrer de Ferran where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and bars. Would recommend the My Way restaurant just... More

this place offers great service however our room needed an update. Our bed was extremely hard. The bathroom had mold or mildew around the run and on the bathroom ceiling and since our room faced the street we had people noise all night. Location is just off La Rambla which is great. Perhaps a room off the street would have... More
