Air conditioning was out the entire 4 days we were there. Each day the story was "they're working on it". Not sure how often this happens but the employees seemed quite comfortable with it. The temperature in our room ranged from 26-29 C (79-84 F), making the stay quite uncomfortable.

Most of the sightseeings were in walking distance otherwise gou could reach them easily in a few minutes as there were bus and metro stations very close to the hotel. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and well designed. The staff was perfect. They were very kind and always ready... More

Room are clean and well designed. Having previously stayed several times, I avoid the cheapest rooms (it's maybe not justified) but i think location, cleanness, general feeling was less good for the cheapest room. If you reserve a suite, you will receive a really good service, a really big room (duplex in our case) with a fantastic terrace. The staff... More

Love the place, the surroundings, perfect location. Modern hotel well decorated. Very good quality and not expansive. Will recommend to anybody. The beach is a 15 minutes walk. It is located in El Born, the best location in Barcelona. Little tapas bars, wine and beer bars all around. I recommand +++

A comfortable stay in a spacious and nicely decorated room. Some noise from the corridor in the evening (doors close with a bang), but overall a nice stay in a very good location. So many bars and restaurants within 5 min walk. Friendly and professional staff.

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
