Staff were very friendly and helpful. It was very noisy at night and I wouldn't recommend/feel comfortable wandering the area alone. It certainly was a 'red light' area with lots of loitering at corners. Room was however very clean with fresh towels everyday. Breakfast wasn't great.

Firstly if you are not on a budget then this hotel is definitely not for you. For me it was just a place to rest before exploring Barcelona. This place is so cheap it is unbelievable, I didn't stay for breakfast so no idea what it was like, staff were pleasant and helpful and the rooms were clean and towels... More

Read previous poor reports but pleasantly surprised. Price was very reasonable for such a location - 5 mins from Las Ramblas, Theatre, Palau Guell! Within walking distance of water. Room basic but clean, beds comfortable, serviced daily (towels, shampoo and soap); air conditioned. Was aware of some street noise (especially Friday night) but did not hinder sleep after day of...
