My partner won us a weekend in Barcelona with Accor Hotels' Facebook page. Yes it's true, some people do actually win on these competitions! We had never stayed at an Ibis hotel before but it won't be our last time with them. Would be very happy to pay the going rate for this hotel. It is in a quiet street less than five minutes' walk from the Sagrada Familia. The beds were really very comfortable indeed, we slept as well here as we do at home. The room was functional rather than stylish but was spotlessly clean and always quiet. Staff were all pleasant, helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good with the usual selection for this price bracket. The Metro station is right beside the Sagrada Familia and the tour bus stop is even closer. We were also able to walk to the Ramblas de Catalunya in around 15 minutes from the hotel. Lots of small supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and bars nearby. Central enough for us.

Nice, clean and simple. The room was clean, the staff were friendly. They do offer breakfast but there are so many good coffee shops around that I am not sure that breakfast is a good deal. I would stay here again. This is a newer hotel and it is in very good condition. The only negative is that the hotel is far from the city center.

I am a frequent user of Ibis because I like knowing what to expect from them, which is usually basic, clean and good value accommodation. I stayed one night at this Ibis with my other half in mid July 2013 during a four-day trip to Barcelona.

Even though this was an Ibis, I was pleasantly surprised by how new and modern this hotel was. Room size was adequate. The bathroom was spacious and the walk-in shower was neatly designed. I'll give extra credit for the cleanliness and also how comfy the double bed was! My other half didn't want to get up! The in-room air conditioning was very welcome as temperatures reached over 30 degrees celsius!

The staff were not the friendliest in terms of chat but they were very nice to let us check-in almost three hours early. The breakfast also looked like a steal at EUR 7.50 per person... maybe something for next time! Oh and not to forget, the location was amazing as it was 3-minute walk to Sagrada Familia and the Metro (note: beware of pickpockets on the metro as I foiled two attempts on my first two trips).

Overall, highly recommended for those looking for a practical and good value stay :)

Room Tip: Overall the hotel was relatively new so there really isn't much difference in the rooms availabl...

The reservation made was no honored given a smaller room. Charged 3 Euro for a cup of tea.
Poor service. I have stayed in other Ibis hotels (Amsterdam) and were great. The location is near the cathedral. The bus tour is across street from the cathedral. Some small stores nearby.
The hotel is far from the city center

Room Tip: Avoid this one. No restaurant only breakfast
