Stayed for a couple nights before a cruise. Hotel is off one of the main strips, Ramblas. Quiet where the hotel is but easy walking distance to some action. Main Barcelona attractions, 10 minutes by taxi (approx 10€), but easy to get around. Metro station very close as well.

Our 6th wedding anniversary took us to Barcelona and for something different, we decided to step back in time to get our retro/60's vibe going on! In doing so, we stumbled across this stylish establishment. The location definitely suited our needs and in prime walking location to everything, we were set for an adventure holiday to last a life time!... More

We stayed here last week for 3 nights and we will definitely be booking again next year. The location is great with the exception of having to walk through a dark laneway night time, but very handy for the ramblas. The staff are very accommodating and friendly and will go out of their way to help you. Highly recommend this... More

Very convenient location at the beginning of the La Rambla near seafront. Interesting design of hotel interior, rooom was basic as says the name itself, but clean and sufficient, with small kitchen corner, kettle included. Only drawback was loose part of the floor, otherwise OK. Breakfast also OK, basic as well. Reasonable priced. Staff was friendly and helpful. Waiter at... More

Second stay at the hotel and I'm glad I rebooked rather than picking somewhere else. Yes, the rooms are quite basic, but they have everything you need and the clean and simple style is nice. The bed is also very comfortable. It was also great that the hotel gave us a free upgrade when we checked in, very much appreciated.... More

The hotel is small and simple, but it is located right in the center of Barcelona. I was there for a conference held in other part of the city, but I decided to stay here for its location. Not too far you can find bus stop to and from the airport, Drassanes metro station just a step away, and you... More

We spent 4 nights at this hotel. The best of it is its location 2 min by walk far from la rambla street. The service is good, room service daily. The rooms are clean and spacious. The bathroom is very small compared to room size. There was a hair dryer and a small shower gel only.the lobby is very nice... More

Location was perfect for our stay. Just a few steps from the Ramblas. There is a metro stop almost right outside the door. Harbor is about 5min away. Beaches are a little further, about 20min but enough to see during the walk to the beach so it's never boring. The hotel is clean and stylish. Staff is friendly and helpful.... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. Check in was fast, unfortunately electricity was down in that square (not hotels fault at all), got an upgrade and small terrace. Room is cozy, toilet is good and clean, bed is comfy. Hotel location is right on Ramblas corner and is very good. Clean place, great to what you pay but no car access.... More

Great basic hotel. Clean, good bar, nice reception, cool decor. Great central location. Down side, twin beds very soft. Don't stay together if you preferred a double. No utensils in room although there was a kitchenette. Noisy from other rooms. Would use chain again but only for short brake.

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
