Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of a two week tour of Northern Spain. Great location, very reasonable. Air conditioning really good. Room small but perfect. Shower hot and powerful. Near El born district too. Definitely recommend it.

Extremely reasonable price and a perfect location! I have nothing but good things to say about my stay at this hotel. The rooms were not luxurious, but perfect for an adventurous stay in Barcelona. The location was amazing and very convenient!

The hotel is well located, with its own cafe'/ restaurant on the first floor. Very nice people at the hotel and restaurant. The room was small, but it was also quiet and clean, and the bathroom was fine. My only gripe is the lack of a hairdryer, but the reception sent one immediately when asked for it.

Excellent location, a good good level of cleanliness, acceptable value of many. But a little bit to noisy - no sound isolation between rooms. The worst is poor English speaking staff. For one night o.k.

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

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

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 .
