Ask for a quiet room in the back and you'll have no noise at all. We had a triple in room 515 and the room was plenty spacious as well as the bathroom. Front desk staff are stand-offish, but helpful when asked. The man was much nicer than the lady with brown hair but neither were remotely rude. TREMENDOUS location - we were able to walk everywhere but to Park Guell - caught the bus. Great value for the $ if you are looking for a reasonable, quiet hotel with a decent breakfast.
