I'm a little late reviewing this since i stayed here during September 2011, but I would like to tell of my experience here. My wife and I traveled to Barcelona for 3 days on a backpacking trip through Europe and just happened to be there during La Merce festival. If you want an inexpensive place to stay that is a... More

First of all GREAT location!!! Close to everything, easy walking distance to all I had planned. In a good area, lots near by! I was glad to have the restaurant on site, made meals easy! Cute little room, most spacious bathroom in Europe I have encountered so far! I got an interior room based on other reviews that complained about... More

We booked this hotel to be close to the park and the Arc de Triumf so we couldn't choose better. It is also a short (and nice) walk to El Barri Gotic and Las Ramblas so plenty of excellent tapas bars and restaurants! The metro is also a few meters away. It was also quite cheap and do not bother... More

We spent 5 days in this nice hotel, very close to the metro, to the bus, to the parks and to the beach. Room was still clean and staff very kind. Staff in restaurant was very kind but with poor English. Food was very tasty with normal prices.If you would like discover culture and life in Barcelona, this is the... More

The hotel is situated near ciudadela park and very close to the city center. We had a room opposite the park. However there is a lot of noise not from the street but from the apartments above which is a problem. Breakfast is not included in the price .

and was just as good if not better than the first time. We love this little hotel and have recommended it to friends who also feel the same way. From the welcome at reception and all the help given by Bibiana, to our smiling big waiter Carlos (photo attached) all was good. The hotel has a large inside restaurant and... More

We liked the location, which was really safe and close to the Metro/train station as well as the city's most remarcable landmarks. Our room and the bathroom were clean, the A/C efficient. The restaurant downstairs could offer a rich variety of local dishes which were both delicious and at reasonable prices. Of course, the fact that all rooms with the... More

Chose this hotel for it's location and price. We arrived to a food festival just outside the hotel which was a bonus, really good atmosphere with all the locals out having a fun Sunday. The park is just opposite the hotel which is a lovely place to escape the crowds. The guy on reception was friendly, rooms very clean, bathroom... More

It was clean! It was cheap (the other option were hostels-no way for me)! It was very central with a metro station at 2mins! The bed was somewhat small but again we are pretty big. The breakfast at the restaurant downstairs was very cheap and ok to get a good start for a day walking and exploring. I would come... More

I booked this hotel based on the good reviews I read on trip advisor, but our experience with the accommodation was unsatisfactory. We were given a room which was more like a boxroom which didn't even have a window! When we complained that it was unacceptable we were given a room with a window for which we had to pay... More
