Barcelona was our first stop of 3 countries. Of all 3 hotels, this was our favorite. The room was really clean, the bathroom was nice and spacious, the front desk clerk was super nice and there was free wifi. The hotel is in a really nice central location. It was a quick cab ride to Park Guell, La Sagrada Familia... More

Stayed here in early March'14 and found it to be a genuinely nice Hotel. Great location for Sagrada Familia and an all round very clean hotel with friendly staff. Slight downside is that the hotel walls aren't that thick - you could hear the lift outside and chairs being moved in neighbouring rooms. That said - I'd recommend it, and... More

Stayed in BCN a few times now, this was a great find. We was a road-trip party of 4, there is parking nearby and the hotel was in a good location. The receptionist could have been a little more clearer in communication with us, plus may a little less abrupt as well.. but otherwise the rooms are amazing, clean and... More

A single ticket journey (a couple of euros) from El Prat airport, take the RENFE R2 train and change at Passeig de Gracia for Tetuan, although we walked from Passeig de Gracia - about 15-20 minutes. The hotel is a short walk, 10... More

I booked a room with two twin beds pushed together. The picture online looked 1000 nicer than the actual room itself and did not depict how dingy the room was. The bed was hard as a rock with awful pillows. The location of the hotel was far from everything. It advertises that it is close to the Sagrada Familia but... More
