I laughed my head off after reading one of the previous reviews of Hotel Laumon that said it's more like 4 star hotel. It's a vast exaggeration. The hotel is a clean and calm place but I would have never called it luxurious.
I lived in double room for single use that was equipped in wooden wardrobe and desk with plastic chair. The bed was of immense size and really comfortable while the neighborhood remained calm so I have no problem with resting at night. Free WiFi as well as air-conditioning were provided and worked ok. Unfortunately, there was neither coffee machine nor fridge in the room. Bathroom was generally clean although I spotted some little ants walking to and fro on the floor and bathtube. Since I like insects, I did not report it to the staff. They would have surely killed off these poor creatures. However, some of you probably fear or detest living with insects under one roof so I fel obliged to share it with you. But don't get discouraged, those ants were not venomous, we got along very well.
Situated in proximity of metro station La Sagrera, Hotel Laumon is a perfect base for city adventure as Barcelona's subway is very well developed. However, everyone should bear in mind this isn't a typical tourist district you may see in city's promotional materials. To reach Barcelona's major attraction, it is inevitable to use public transport or rent a car.
Staff at the reception was very nice, helpful and spoke English fluently. They provided me with all necessary information I asked for and, moreover, often inquire if I need something.
I recommend it to all those for whom Barcelona itself is of more value than interior design.
