“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. The staff was very helpful regarding restaurant recommendations in the area, the room and bathroom were exceptionally clean, and it was as comfortable as one can expect a hotel room (other than a suite!) to be. Within walking distance to Sagrada Familia and two metro stops on two separate lines. I didn't eat in the restaurant at any time, so can't comment on that, but would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone going to Barcelona.

Room Tip: I had read that the lower floors were noisy, but I was on first floor facing the intersection and di...

This is a comfortable hotel with free wifi, nice clean bathroom and helpful staff. Location is not bad - only five minutes to La Sagrada Familia and walkable to central Barcelona. Breakfast was basic with not a lot of options but fine.

Stayed two nights for business. Average hotel, nothing fancy. The room was clean, but with too much fresh air spray before my arrival. An open window helped. Window was facing a brick Wall, so ask for high floor, street view.
Wifi was ok. I did not eat at the hotel. Plenty of cafees nearby. If the area suits you this hotel could be your choice. Friendly staff.

We stayed during march. Nice rooms , friendly and helpful reception. Very handy for Sagrada. Was a bit further away from the centre of Barcelona than i hoped. But still a pleasant walk. Breakfast not brilliant but ok. For price i dont think it can be faulted.

A really great budget choice (we paid less than £40 per night) The rooms were a reasonable size as was the well equipped bathroom. The free WiFi was of excellent quality. The hotel is less than 10 mins from a number of metro stops on different lines, but don't discount the buses either as a speedy way to get around. Don't bother with the €12 breakfast at the hotel(discounted to €9 to guests) get breakfast from one of the local shops(if using Girona Metro use excellent bakers next to the metro lift)

Great hotel. Good location. Clean top notch room and bathroom. Everything i want from a hotel really. Only issue was they were having wifi issues part of the time I was there (was there 3 nights. Worked fine first night. Was out from the next morning until the following night). It was out of their hands and I understand it happens but i gotta factor that in and give you 3 stars though otherwise I'd give it 4. They did eventually give me the key to the staff wifi which only worked on the ground and first floors. Lucky me I was on the first floor.

All in all a good hotel. Big comfy bed and lovely bathroom and shower. Short walk from some attractions. Very close to la estacion del norte bus station.
