Well located place near Plaza Catalunya. Modest, but clean and well kept. We were traveling with three kids, and had the cuad room, which was very nice with air con. Asked for an extra bed, could not get it, but we managed to squeeze the youngest with us. When leaving for the airport, receptionist convinced us to get a taxi... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is located very central and its just a few mins walk from Placa Catalunya. We took the Aerobus from the airport and got us to there in under 40 mins and it stops right outside the El Corte Ingles department store. Its very convenient. The hotel is on the first floor of a...

We stayed here for the Easter weekend. Room was small and basic. However it had free air conditioning, wifi and tea and coffee making facilities. It was also very clean. I would stay here again, for the price paid it was a bargain. The staff were also friendly.

Just got back from BCN after staying at Hotel Pelayo with my boyfriend. If you're looking for a cheap city break hotel this is the one for you! Perfect location, clean and safe! Very helpful staff, would return!

Great location and very friendly staff, as I had travelled on my own it was ideal. Use of a computer is available at one euro for 30 minutes which I found very useful. The subway system is very easy to use but I wouldn't buy day passes online, as trying to redeem the voucher proved impossible and given my Spanish... More

We travelled with two children and had a room for four. Could not fault the room in any way - everything you needed. Stayed in higher rated hotels with less - there was a safe, tv and hairdryer... Central location and very clean hotel with friendly staff. Daily room cleaning and clean towels. Would not hesitate to go back!

Location is a very short walk to metro, Placa Catalunya, Las Ramblas. Room was small but adequate, air conditioned, private bath, TV. Had to pay for bottled water and internet if you used the hotel's computer. WiFi was free, sometimes iffy in the room but fine in the lobby. Very friendly and helpful staff.

For the price we paid, we were so impressed with the hotel itself. Clean, spacious rooms, the staff will do anything they can to help despite not speaking much English! Couldn't fault the hotel itself at all. The only issue for us was the location - if you want to be right in the centre, near La Rambla and the... More
