Fantastic hotel! Location is perfect, just off Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya. Staff were great, friendly on arrival and departure. Our room was facing the street (no problems with noise at all!!), on the 4th level, with a gorgeous little balcony overlooking the bustling street below and very clean! Just a tip, avoid a twin room if you can.... More

The hotel at excellent location, with friendly service, very clean. Water and coffie avaliable all day for free. For gourmands - croissants after 3 p.m. Recomendalble hotel for sure. The only problem - quite noisy during the night in rooms with a street view (because of the bars nearby).

I found this hotel to be centrally located so I booked it for my stay in Barcelona. The staff are very helpful and I found my room very comfortable and it was cleaned daily with no problems on that side. The complimentary water was a plus as every day and evening I could go to the fridge to pick up... More

Wonderful hotel in a fantastic location. Reception staff were welcoming and always willing to help and give advice for places to go. Best part of the hotel is definitely the roof terrace and jacuzzi, which gives you a fantastic view of the city. Also, get free water every day and room cleaned on a daily basis. I would definitely recommend... More

Great location. But but but...The receptionist obviously has more important things on her mind than welcoming you. The rooms is quite spacy and very basic. The shower cycles through hot and cold every 30 seconds. Wifi is slow to the point of being useless most of the day. Sound insulation is poor, A door in your room will lead to... More

Pros: Great staff, free water, coffee, and internet. Bed ok. Cons: Noisy, Paper-Thin Walls, Loud on Street. Only shelving for storage, shower freezes-scalds over & over, ventilation systems in rooms not working. Good for young explorers/young 20's

If you're not subway friendly like I am (you will need to be in barcelona) this hotel is located next to la ramblas, placa catalunia and passeig de garcia, which are the three main shopping/walking sites of the city. It's in a street next to a university so you will run into a lot of student activity during the day.... More

The hotel is in a really central location, with easy access to La Ramblas and all of Barcelona, there are also a few nice bars just across the road. The rooms were clean, spacious and modern as were the bathrooms, and the hotel in general. Wish we had of made more use of the roof terrace, but we forgot about... More
