“Great Location! Great for a 2 star hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I was very impressed with this place. I wasn't expecting much because it was a 2 star hotel, but it was in a great location. It was just short walk from everything. Rooms were clean and had everything we needed. Staff was helpful and friendly.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I stayed here when I went to see a band at Sala Apolo which is literally a 3 minute walk from this hotel (location location location!) - as my flight was delayed & I was running late I grabbed a cab from the airport (El Prat) and it only cost 20 euros which in the grand scheme of things isn't bad at all. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was new, modern and very clean! Everytime we went to use the elevators there was always one there open and waiting to be used which was a nice touch - I'm sure when it's very busy that doesn't happen but it caused us no end of entertainment! There's a great metal bar 5 mins away for anyone who is that way inclined (Hell Awaits - great night out!). Lots of places to eat nearby, overall we had a great stay and would definitely return.

Room Tip: 4th floor and upper floor are the new one, choose it there, don't take the room facing the main...

Based on location, size of room, new bathroom this rates as on of the best 2* hotels I've stayed in and would recommend (although avoid first floor - rooms 101 and 102 both noisey to proximity to lift and breakfast room).

Would have awarded 4/5 if it wasn't for the staff who on arrival told me the football tickets hadn't arrived for that evening, costing me money and stress, only to discover they had been there for two days.
Asking for advice on where to rent the electric cars sent us on a 30min walk to the wrong place.

If you don't need the services of the front desk and get a quiet room, you are on to a winner here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

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.
