Everything REALLY dirty, bad smelling, basically really disgusting. Tried to obtain refund as one of our party suffers form a medical problem and was unable to stay in such inhumane conditons but the Gargallo Group customer service stinks as much as their rooms. Don't stay here, it'll ruin your stay and cost you money. There are many other nice cheap... More

5 of us stayed for 3 nights in mid March for the game against Barcelona in champions league, the rooms are tiny to say the least but they were clean (ish) bathrooms tiny and our room had the previous occupants hair still in there. Shower had plenty of hot water and all we wanted was somewhere to sleep and get... More

This is great value for money, you get what you pay for here, basic room,clean, bit dusty round the edges - skirting boards behind the beds, bit of a sewage smell in the bathroom from time to time, other than that it was fine. Beds were changed. Soap and shampoo freebies. The bath was tiny, not full size. We stayed... More

I was a lone traveller. The Rooms were cramped. Cleanliness was an issue as bath towells were stinking which I also noticed in hotels at other European cities. The hotel do not have wi fi facility and wi-fi at lobby is expensive. Location seems good at Barcelonata. Walk across the street would be towards Picasso museum. Breakfast option for vegetarians...

This is a no frills hotel, but was great for my purpose. Very central, walking distance to lots of interesting places. Comfortable rooms, clean. Quiet road. As a woman travelling alone I felt safe and had a relaxing and pleasant stay. Would definitely go back. Best thing - the location.

Me and my friend arrived at the hotel at mid night and when we checked in, the hotel staff informed us elevator was not working and we had to carry our luggage to 3rd floor, While we were walking up the stairs, we could see the paint on the wall was peeled off. And when we tried to access our... More

Decided on Santa Marta for it's location - great. The room was very small, bad smell from the bathroom, street noise from garbage truck every night. Close to all transport, walking distance to old town and waterfront areas. Variety of restaurants close by.

The hotel is very old and in need of some TLC. It was good enough for us, as we are not looking to spend a lot of time in the hotel. There is a bed and washroom, all we needed. The staff was trying their best to help, and seemed very friendly. The rooms say they have air conditioning, that... More

We were pretty disappointed with our brief stay at Santa Marta. The location itself was good, but the hotel was pretty low quality all around. My wife and I asked for a large bed but got a tiny room with two small beds. There were dead flies squashed on the wall that looked like they had been there for days.... More

I can only comment on the management of Santa Marta since I never got the room that I had booked.... I booked a room one month in advance at Santa Marta through the online booking site HotelUSA. I received my booking confirmation by e-mail and thought everything was in order. However, when I showed up at the hotel on the... More
