I went here on a school trip with over 40 pupils and the receptionist staff were immediately very polite and helpful. The communal area is fun with a table tennis table, a cinema area and table football. The gym is extremely well equipped. The metro station is a short walk from the accommodation and there is a lovely park right... More

This place was the venue of a summer camp for me, so my experience may not be the same as other travelers. If you're looking for budget accommodation, Agora is perfect. Although it may not be in the city center, one can enjoy the quiet and serenity around campus Mundet. You can always catch the metro from Mundet station and... More

We had not ate since earlier that morning, unfortunately we were told there was no food establishments near by so the woman on the desk was able to call for a pizza delivery for us as we were unable to speak spanish, she was very helpful. The room itself was... More

We stayed 5 days in Barcelona and the hotel worked great for us. Good buffet breakfast is inclusive into the price, which is an advantage. Hotel is located in quite outskirt area of the city which is good connected to the center of the Barcelona by the green Metro line. It takes 15-20 minutes by metro to get to the... More

I stayed here for a program in Barcelona for a few months. We payed full price, no discount, so you would expect us to treat us with a little decency but they didn't. They don't like Americans. The other people in my program along with other Americans who were also staying in the residence felt especially targeted by the staff.... More

City tour! We spent 5 days in this hotel! The location is very good; the underground is near (on foot - about 5 minutes). If you travel by metro, you have to go to the Mundet station, you have to climb a hill, after that you must turn right, about 200-300 meters and you will arrive the destination. The Breakfast...
