“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

Clean rooms, excellent location and very nice staff. Good prices
Near the center and comfortable rooms with amazing bathrooms
We would definitely recommend it and to go back again.
The location is very nice and in a quiet street, 5 minutes walking from Ramblas.

I think this hotel must have *** (three stars), not **.
Very good location.
Clean, accurate, regular housekept. Towel changes every day.
Helpfull english-speaking stuff.
WiFi works excelent.
But... very noisy. Doors in the rooms are from paper. Walls are very thin - each word can be heared in another rooms.
Breakfast (additional 10 Euro) is full [--]. No eggs. No sausages...
In the 100 meters from the hotel is located cafe "Can Eujevio" (Carrer de Vilà i Vilà, 84) - very good breakfast for only 4 Euro, excelent seafood on the evening - 12 Euro.

Stayed here for 4 nights 4-9th November. Beds hard but not lumpy and most people will find comfortable. No fan in the bathroom even though it was brand new so it made the room a bit smelly. Breakfast excellent for continental, fresh rolls, cold meats,cereals, juices, yogurts, and the obligatory doughnuts and cakes which were great. Staff were helpful and pleasant and the location for travelling around Barcelona is perfect. No complaints and we were pleasntly surprised as the price we paid was so good.

Spent a week there with my significant other attending a conference. Friendly staff, reasonably large room, comfortable bed, good bathroom. Disappointing breakfast. The only gripe was that our room was close to the elevator and there was some noise coming from other guests and the lift itself. The location ei excellent 1 min. walk to Paral-lel metro station and 15 min. to La Rambla.
