Using directions from the hotel after emailing them, we found this hotel very easily, a few minutes walk from Drassanes Metro station (L3). It is located behind a tower block, which is a very useful landmark for finding your way home when wandering around the roads off La Rambla. We were on the fith floor, and we had asked for... More

The hotel location is perfect; 50 m from a Metro Station and 100 from the Ramblas but located on a quiet street. The decor is fun and chic, and is very clean and well maintained. The staff were friendly. The room had a tiny kitchenette if you feel like making coffee or snacks.

This hotel has amazing charm and character and just feels like a fun place to stay. The thing that drew me to this hotel was the gorgeous Fiat 500-Bambino in the lobby and the creative suitcase stacked check-in desk. On arrival, the charm and quirkiness continued and we weren't disappointed. There were tall cabinets with old-fashioned books, 60's (I think)... More

We went there as our first over-night going to spend new-year in France, coming from Mallorca. After a long crossing Mallorca-Barcelona by ferry-boat with a mad sea, we arrived at the hotel from Barcelona port while the engine was not warm yet. There is a parking 50 meters at the entrance of the road (20 euros per night), parking is... More

Loved the short stay at the hotel. Booked the standard room which was adequate. Interior was simple and stylish, nothing over the top. But everything was clean and the staff was super helpful and cordial. The hotel is smack next to la rambla making it a happening spot. Will definitely stay here again.

This is a good funky hotel and well located (a W wanna be). Staff is friendly and helpful albeit the scary advice when checking in about pickpockets in the vicinity! Rooms are decent but a few things can be improved like the excessive smell of detergents (but it is clean), the noise in the hallway when the staff is cleaning... More

Hotel and room was clean and in silent location still very close to La Rambla and Drassenes metro station. Everything was working as they should and there was even enough hot water in... More

The location of the hotel is just next to the Ramblas which is great!Too close would have been too noisy , so the location is just perfect! The design of the hotel in general is great , unique ,perfect... More

We stayed in an apartment room for three nights in Feb. We are a family of four and our sons had two sofa bed style beds in what might otherwise be a sitting room. On our first night one of the small beds was not made up but the staff helpfully sorted this out for us. The room (712) was... More
