My wife and I came off a 14 day E Mediterranean cruise with Celebrity Cruises Equinox and chose this hotel from the ratings and location. The good and the bad and the ugly- Location is excellent, a few blocks from Las Ramblas and many restaurants, souvenir shops, butchers, Starbucks, Carrefour (large store where you can get almost anything and prices...

We've been here at the end of February, it was really an amazing stay. The price was quite fair, 60 euros for night, for stay in a quiet hotel, very clean, near La Rambla and the Mercato de la Boquieria. The position is perfect, near the metro, near the sea, near La Rambla. The street where it is situated is... More

We were a little skeptical first day we arrived at the hotel, as it is located in a narrow side street. We got a small but perfectly OK room. Clean and nice. Some noise from the street outside at night, but with earplugs I could sleep. The few times we saw someone at the front desk, they were friendly and... More

This hotel has no soundproofing, so the noise from the street (mainly people fighting in the alley next to the hotel) kept us up at night and construction woke us up way too early. We had to leave early. There are better values available in Barcelona.

Although this hotel is conveniently located near the centre, it is in one of the seediest streets we found in Barcelona, and was extremely noisy all night long. Our rooms on the 4th floor (402 & 403) gave out onto an alleyway where junkies gathered every night and made an unbelievable amount of noise. Windows were not double-glazed, so it... More

Just got back from a four night stay in Hotel Alba. It is a fantastic location putting you just off La Rambla mid way between Plaza Catalunya and the Port area. The nearest Metro is Liceu on the green line and very handy. The best part is that the hotel alba is right near a fabulous food market where you... More
