After a terrible Ryanair flight into Barcelona, that was diverted to Girona then back to Barca, I was looking forward to just getting to the hotel and into bed! The hotel isnt far from the Espana stop for the Aerobus, which is handy. About a 15min walk down a straight road. We arrived at 2am, and were met by a... More

I find it hard to not comment on some critical reviews written by people. I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of July and it found it to be very good, especially considering the I only paid around 45 euros per night. If you want luxury the.

Perfect for budget travellers, this place provides excellent accommodation as long as you realize you are paying for a place to rest your head - not an amenity-filled leisure palace. The location is excellent. It's a short 5/10 min walk along the main road from the final stop of the 46 bus from the airport; it's only a couple of... More

Yes, this is a basic hotel, but to be honest, it has everything you need. It is clean, modern, efficient and cheap. The staff are friendly. It is extremely quiet at night-time for sleeping. The only downside is the area the hotel is in isnt great, mostly from an aesthetic point of view. The bathroom is small enough but not... More

This isnt the fanciest hotel, but for the price you pay I think it is pretty good, Me and my mum stayed here two years ago and I returned this month with my boyfriend, the rooms are small but clean, and you shouldnt be spending lots of your time in the room anyway as there is too much to do...

Clean and tidy hotel with small rooms though. Ideal for couples but not for families. Great security and ideal location very close to Poble sec metro Station.
