Great location, walking distance to so many great places. Very cute design and details. Adorable notes written around the room. For example the soap had a message on it that read: "this is the cutest soap you will ever steal from a hotel, enjoy", or something of the sort. Our room was very small, but ok. Had a little kitchen... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in June. The hotel is extremely easy to find, 3mins away from Drassanes Metro station. Our fifth floor room was quiet, spacious enough for chilling and getting ready and a decent sized bathroom that was kept clean. Despite being 'basic' they do provide some toiletries and it does have a hairdryer. We used the... More

We spent two nights here before departing on our cruise a couple of weeks ago. The room was clean and offered the necessary necessities. Not noisy for us at all even though our room faced the front area of the hotel. It is easily reached from the airport by taking the AeroBus to Plaça de Catalunya and then one subway... More

For a reasonable price you get a clean and tidy tiny hotel in the city hub, where all the attractions are right after you pass the gate. This stylish and retro hotel offers very comfortable rooms, cute little details you can find of every corner of it, like funny texts on soaps that make you smile when you take a... More

We spent 4 nights in this hotel in June 2014. Not so easy to find on foot as it is behind a high rise building just off the roundabout Drassanes, but only about 100 metres from Drasssanes Metro station. Staff were very helpful - room was a good size - we had one with a kitchenette and my wife cooked... More

Very nice hotel. Attractively decorated, clean, well equipped, friendly, good price. Very close to La Rambla but on a secluded (quiet) side-street. Everything you could ask for, really. The breakfast was fairly rudimentary with not much choice for vegetarians (well, it is Spain!) - I preferred to order a coffee and sandwich from the bar.

We really enjoyed our staying there- nice staff, nice and basic room but really chicy- with a tiny kitchen which is a plus. Really worth the value- and in Europe I don't think you need more than this hotel. I highly recommended it!!

We wanted a place that was close to the beach, close to the La Rambla and at a student-friendly price. This place was it! It was really cozy and we even got a balcony in our room even if we didn't pay to have one. Only downside: The bathroom was quite....creative, with just a sliding door separating the toilet from...

We stayed here 3 nights. Positives: - Clean, modern room - Helpful reception staff - Comfortable bed - Good breakfast (for extra €) - Central location Minor negatives only: - hot water wasn't working late one night but was fixed by the morning - wifi can be maxed out with users during peak times, meaning you can't access it.
