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

If there was an option to say 'good' rather than average or very good I'd have gone for this - generally it's pretty average though - apart from the location which is very good, it's difficult to get enthused about this place. The rooms, although very clean are extremely basic - Lino floors and light from the corridor pouring in... More

My 20-something daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a week at the end of July. There were no surprises as I had checked it out on Tripadvisor prior to booking. The room was very clean every day with fresh towels, clean linens, and mopped floors. We had a room overlooking the street, which I had requested. Even though... More

Spent 2 nights on this hotel with my girlfriend, room number 101. Hotel seemed clean and well looked after. Modern interior, air conditioning and free cold bottled water in the lobby. Our room had a terrace. Breakfast was not very good, small selection and they had cured ham sliced so thick that it was impossible to chew. But freshly baked... More
