Very nice hotel, decent breakfast very nice staff. Cozy rooms and clean. Room service staff are very helpful and honest. Very good location in La Rambla. Pretty much enjoyed the time there. Internet access is only limited to a common floor, but you can access it from the room depending on its location.

Do yourself a favour and avoid it at all costs Too noisy, bed was rock hard, the rooms were filthy and in general the whole ambience was a bad experience for me in Barcelona. Our window was open and wasn't able to be closed! Would you believe that they designed a room where a window is open and exposed to... More

Where do I begin? The hotel is located right by the Liceu stop, around the corner from the Rambla which makes it a very convenient location. We had a very nice interaction with Emilio who provided useful information. However when we get to the room, there are several issues. The hotel in general is poorly lit: rooms and hallways. You...

Great little hotel, friendly staff, basic, but comfortable and clean room. Brilliant location, just 2 minutes walk from Rambla and metro stop. Was really quiet at night and got a really good nights sleep. Recommended. Nice breakfast too. And a really good price too.

This Hotel is in the perfect location, is reasonable in price and the staff are brilliant, after that I can't find much else to say about it that is any good. Breakfast, don't bother, the rooms, terrible and due to the construction with the central Atrium feature, the noise is constant. A Hostel would better describe it for me. Top... More

We arrived there midnight. We were worried about being there so late. Plaza Catalunya is notorious for burglars on the internet. After exchanging e-mails, we decided to take airport bus. It was o.k. to walk with our luggages. The hotel is located in the center of the city and close to the subway stop-- easy to go anywhere with subway... More

Whilst this is a basic and therefore average hotel, for the price it is good. I came here with University students, leading a field trip. Looking at the reviews (and previous colleagues' comments) I wasn't look forward to it. However, the more negative amongst them didn't reflect my experience. I actually found it to be a friendly and clean hotel... More

Hotel stay from Friday 16 may 2014 to Sunday 18 may 2014. Upon arrival the receptionist (male) was very polite and friendly. Check in was quick and efficient. The receptionist provided a lot of useful information. The hotel also provides street and tube maps for free which can be picked up from the reception desk. The hotel charges 0.75 cents... More

This is a Budget Hotel, but offers good value for money. When we stayed the hotel seemed to be full of British students, though they did not cause any problems. The rooms are small and basic, but are cleaned every day. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is basic but it is more than enough to keep you... More
