The AC did not work... More

The hotel was in a good location lots of nice tapas bars and cafés around and a short walk from 2 gaudi buildings and about 15-20mim walk to la rambla. It was conformable, clean and well maintained. Would love to go back to Barcelona and would definitely stay here again.
