“Skip this one.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2006

Don't believe the Web site description--(lovely room, king-size bed). While the location was good--close to the metro and within walking distance of the Las Ramblas, the primary room was very small, the bed squeaked just turning over (a double, older than Methuselah), the shower stall so small, you couldn't turn around, and the lift creaked, groaned and thumped all night long.

The staff was indifferent to our questions and requests.
