Room was practical for us as we were students so are used to student halls. Found staff very friendly and helpfull, place is very secure and located just 15mins walk from las ramblas. Would definately recommend this for a short stay. Hope to be back in the future

Residencia Melon District Poble Sec is a university residential building, where rooms are available to the public during high season in Barcelona.

Whilst the rooms are basic and small, the bed is comfortable and there's plenty of space to store clothes. The bathroom has a shower, toilet and small sink. Towels and linen are provided and when we arrived, the room had been cleaned to a high standard.

Standard amenities in the kitchen, with each room getting its own space in the fridge. There's a huge TV and a seating area. On the roof of the building, there is a small pool and plenty of space to sun bathe. There's a supermarket nearby to get food and drink as well.

Being located on Paral.lel, means it's perfect for getting to Raval, the Gothic area and the beach. Barcelona is one of our favourite cities, with plenty of bars and restaurants and things to see and do. If you're looking for a cheap and functional place to base yourself whilst visiting the city, then definitely consider Residencia Melon District Poble Sec.

Overall a very clean, value for money and nice place to stay.
The rooms are small but big enough, although the bathrooms are relatively small. We went in a group so it was bearable and the rooftop pool was a lovely addition, however it can get busy up there.
We only spent a few nights there and I could imagine if we were to spend any longer it could get a bit dyer as they are very minimal with no tv and towards the end felt a bit like a prison cell,so I wouldn't advise this place if you are travelling alone.
It is exactly student halls, the walls were thin and you could hear the other guests quite clearly throughout your shared floor.
Still, it was in a good location, you could walk to wherever and there are lots of places to eat along the same strip.
No real complaints, it just felt like I was back at Uni for a few days!

Great place to stay on a budget - clean, central, friendly, good facilities. The only negative thing was that the mattress on the bed dipped in the middle - it was not flat - which made sleeping less comfortable than it could have been. Also, the hinges on the door meant that they slammed quite loudly - which may disturb if you are a light sleeper.

The hotel is situated in a central position near two metro station; the receptionists speak several languages, as spanish, english, italian, and they are very kind. The hotel is quite clean, the bedrooms very nice even if a very small toilet (small as the planes ones). There is even the kitchen and the swimming pool at the last floor.
I think I'll recommend this hotel because it's very nice and situated in a great position.
