This hotel was clean and the room and bathroom were nice sized. We even had a balcony, which we took advantage of. The hotel staff was pleasant and spoke English. The room price does not come with breakfast and I was told the breakfast at the hotel wasn't good. The hotel is right in the middle of things -- near... More

nice, clean hotel in the centre of Barcelona, just off Placa de Catalunya and Las Ramblas. Right accross the road there is El Mos, a nice pattisserie where you can get breakfast for 3 at abt EUR 10-15,- total. Nice spacious room (triple) with good bathroom. Only drawback was that this room did not have a proper window (the window... More

This is a top-notch location, right in the centre of beautiful Barcelona. Our room was small but clean and the mattress, as requested, was firm. For such an excellent location, there was no traffic noise whatsoever. However, if anyone flushed the toilet anywhere in the hotel, we heard it. The staff was friendly and courteous and we enjoyed our two... More

First trip to Barcelona. Cancelled another hotel reservation and booked at this hotel before departure because of Rick Steve's travel guidebook recommendation. When we arrived, we were told that our credit card did not go through so no reservation and no room availability. Then they changed their mind and said we can be accommodated. Unfortunately, I had a family emergency... More

What a most delightful surprise! Our historic hotel was located about a 1.5 blocks off Placa Catalunya and half block off the Ramblas. Easy walking to bus stops, Ramblas, Barri Gotic and the Med. We walked everywhere with ease and safety. I was a little nervous at first travelling with my two daughters, but immediately fell in love with the... More

The location was vey centric (very close to the Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya) but the rooms was very small. I was very disappointed because after... More
