Just come back from staying here for 5 nights with my wife and the experience was to be fair average. The hotel is located around 5/7 minute cab ride to the main area "Les Ramblas" which will cost you around 6/8 euros one way.
The rooms are of a decent size with basic bathroom amenities, they are however dated in appearance but to the cleaning staffs credit are of a decent standard.
Upon arrival, there was no one to assist us with our luggage into the reception then to our room. For a 4 star hotel, i thought this would have been the normal.
Furthermore our first night we were disturbed with a staff member bringing us a ironed shirt that she thought was ours, we notified her that it was not however they still tried to charge for this upon check out. To their credit, once we informed them of the case, they removed that charge.
Also on the last night our electricity went and when i called the reception I was asked whether the card was in, bit strange to be asking someone who has been staying here for the past 4 nights i thought. It took around 10 mins to resolve but no explanation or apology.
Each time you entered, left the hotel a general smile or acknowledgement I thought at a 4 star hotel would the norm, but not here.
All in all it’s like a Travelodge but a tad better. If you get a cracking deal like we did then i would stay here as the location is good.
Any questions - feel free to give me a shout.
