“Low cost comfortable accommodation in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2015

This is a 2 star rated "Pension" (Guest House). It had a lift, clean room, clean bathroom, good hot water and comfortable bed. Free Wi-Fi, Television and friendly helpful staff. Great location in walking distance to all the historical sites. Heap of bars and restaurants nearby and close to Airport Bus Stop and Metro. Some reports had said it was noisy but the only noise we experienced were guests returning to their rooms which can happen anywhere. Our room was right next to lift so if that is a potential problem to anyone they should request a room away from the lift. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Chose room away from the lift

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2015

Situated 2 min walk from Universitad Metro and 10-15 min walk from La Ramblas / Catalunya Square, this hotel is undeniably in an excellent location. It was the cheapest accommodation close to key attractions. The rooms are clean and the reception staff are friendly and helpful. The first impression was not great with drunks standing outside in the neighbouring vicinity. The rooms are Spartan and certainly no frills. An antiquated TV in the room was not working. There was also street noise at night. Having said that the location certainly made up for all these snags and we used it as a platform to do lots of sightseeing in Barcelona.

Room Tip: The WiFi signal is not great. We had no problems on the first floor

Location is perfect- right in the heart of the good stuff, and room very comfy for the money. However, I'm the type of guy who really appreciates: in room wifi, working power points and a shower (my room only had a bath which, although relaxing, a little annoying) so it loses some points there.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

We just spent three nights here. The room was quite dated with a mirror on the ceiling. It was very basic with one hair dryer in the whole place. When you plugged it in you had to try & keep your elbow on the plug to stop it from falling out. The first night there were 2 sachets of shower gel but the following 2 nights there was only one and had to ask for more. The location was ideal but I don't think I'd stay again.
