This hostal DOES NOT include breakfasts. The location is perfect: 5 walking minutes from Plaza Catalunya. This hostal is perfect for those looking nothing but a good bed and a good shower nothing else. It is so eco that black ants walk by in your room... I have been in other eco hotels with lots of more eco details than... More

The directions from the website were helpful in finding the location which was near but not on La Rambla. The lobby is nicely decorated and the overall impression is that they have taken their Eco theme to heart using recycled items in innovative ways. Check-in was efficient and we were directed to our room on the fourth floor. The elevator... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights in early September. Excellent location and handy to everything. There is a good feel of local neighborhood and yet only a block from La Rambla. Plenty of good eating places and reasonable price supermarkets and bakeries. Reception of the hotel is very informal and rustic. The staffs very very helpful and friendly.... More

Stayed here at the end of August for 3 nights kicking off our interrailing trip, what a perfect place to start our trip! The location couldn't be better, perfect for everything you want on a trip.

I stayed at this hotel with a friend of mine for 3 nights and it was great. The hotel is in a phenomenal location and we were shown unmatched hospitality.

The room is simple and straight forward in a good location off the main tourist tracks, but in close walking distance to major attractions. The hotel has some of the best wifi I've ever experienced in a hotel room. Good service and great speed. A small mini bar fridge in the room would be nice and forget the "garden view"... More

The location of this hotel was great for our purposes, located very close to numerous restaurants, Gaudi landmarks, Las Ramblas, etc. The furnishings and decor were very contemporary with a green theme. But it is definitely a smaller hotel, as it is fit in to a historic property. We were a party of five across two rooms, with one child.... More

What makes this hotel is the location, you can walk everywhere. We stayed here in July '14 and had a great stay in a family room. Room was very clean, comfortable, and spacious, not fancy.

Loved this place! The room was large and extremely clean. It is in a very central location. The staff is quite knowledgable and willing to help in any way they can. Despite facing the street we weren't bothered by noise at all.
