super chic, sort of place you would expect in barcelona.
good value, loved the decor, especially lighting and bathrooms, upgraded to a different bigger room for free.
wifi was good. breakfast round the corner in a wonderful kitsch 24 hour place that was busy at all hours.
owner helpful and pleasant, beds were comfy.
only downside was awkward with a big case on the stairs as there are two entrances and its not clear at night time. courtesy fridge in hallways.
would stay again.
