Dont fall for the pictures. I stayed there for 3 nights and was very uncomfortable. Had to buy ear plugs as I could hear a train and if people next door closed their door it would make a serious noise. I have never seen a tiny bathroom. The curtain was sticking to my body whilst showering. I decided not to... More

My partner and I stayed here whilst interrailing and it was ideal. right next to metro stations and only a couple of stops to las rambles. Some nice shops and bars nearby too and fairly cheap. Great for a budget short stay as bathroom is slightly on the small side. Building appears to be student residences during term time so... More

Tiny room, especially bathroom (1-2 m2), but clean and comfortable. After long walking day it was OK for us, but if you are picky and demanding to comfort, this room it's not for you. Parking is under the building , for extra 19€. You may get continental breakfast in cafe on the 1st floor

If you're looking for somewhere cheap to stay in Barcelona I couldn't recommend this anymore. It's clean, safe and modern. Staff were helpful! I wouldn't recommend it for a family though. It's close to the city centre and tube, plus there is a great bakery next door for a cheap breakfast and loads of supermarkets nearby.

The best thing about the hotel was the location. It didn't take more than 10 minutes to walk to Plaça de Catalunya from there. There was also a metro station really near and a supermarket to buy food. The staff was friendly and helpful. Room was quite small but there was enough room for two people. There isn't a hairdryer...
