Nice location near main street leading to La Rambla (approx 40 min walk) and a lot to see on the way. Cleaning was good. Staff friendly (especially nighttime receptionist). Closest Hotel you will find to #1 rated restaurant on tripadvisor, Una. Also close to a lot of toplist restaurants. If you want to spend your money on good food before... More

This small ,but extremely well located, hotel has been a pleasant discovery. The subway nearest stop is just 5 minutes away and, from there, you can catch the major lines to the touristic places in Barcelona. The train stations (Sants) is only 1 km away and easily reached by feet (which is very convenient if you take the train from/to... More

Spent one night here in transit and found it excellent and economic. Very close to Sants station if you arrive by plane or TGV/AVE. Pleasant university feel to the district (though that's Barcelona anyway). Recommended.

Room was very clean, with modern furniture, but I think a fridge and a table should be necessary. The staff was friendly, but they really need to start learning English. The location was perfect, close to the subway and shops.

We inform you that we have a fridge in the private kitchen and if you had told us, we could have saved your things there. The same with the table, if you asked on the Front desk... we could have given you one.... More

Nice and clean friendly staff who speak English and a roof top terrace to chill. Th e view is nothing its all about the company. A lift to the roof is an added benefit. Breakfast is provided, not included but there are plenty of bars in thhe locality.

Good Hotel near Sants railway station, 8-10 mins walk, a little difficult to find, area a little run down. Never felt uncomfortable. Room very comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Easy access to metro. Did not have the breakfast so cannot comment.

We stayed overnight on our way from Spain to Nice by train. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room although not large was spotless and comfortable. A short walk to shops and restaurants. Very reasonably priced accommodation which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. As we had to leave early I could not comment on the breakfast.

The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and the beds are nice and soft. The metro station is just around the corner where metro line 1 brings you directly to the city center. We left everyday pretty late in the morning and every time we came back the room was cleaned and looked nice. The patio is small but... More
