Beautiful, modern and clean lodging in central Barcelona (in famous Passeig Gracia), walking distance to many places (Casa Battlo, Casa Amattler, etc), many great places to eat. Comfy and lots of space for 3 adults with 2 beds on the loft and a queen bed on main floor. Wish though there was a mini fridge to keep foods/drinks cold.

Rooms are not so big as they appear in pictures. Water doesn't flow down in the sink of the toilet. In our room we found ants on the floor. No fridge, no bidet, no wardrobe but only a few crutches on a metal bar attached to the Wall. It's near the center of the city but no more.

Location is good, other than that it was a disaster. If you want to stay in a "do it yourself" experiment (will explain below), this is the place for you; otherwise, recommend you avoid it. The place has NO staff on site (in theory there is an office an one of the upstairs floors, but it was always locked, and we never found anyone inside). You let yourself into the building with a code they send you by email, which gets you into the small "reception" area--just an empty counter with no one behind it, and signs on the walls telling you what to do. The email (sent via booking.com) also contained a code to let us into our room--but no room number! There is a phone in the reception area from which you can call an extension for the office (no answer, can't leave message) and another extension for emergencies (no answer, can't leave message). We also had a cell phone number to call for emergencies (again, no answer, can't leave message). So we were stuck in the reception area for 1.5 hours, until I decided to just try the code on each room, finally finding the one it opened, which we assumed to be ours. The room has so little space you can barely walk around the bed, and smelled musty, perhaps because there is no ventilation fan in the bathroom, and opening a window wasn't an option with the heat and humidity while we were there. The air conditioner did cool the room, but didn't do much to decrease the humidity, so our clothes constantly felt damp. More fun and games started on the second day, when the handle on the sink faucet broke while the water was running (cheap crappy hardware!). We eventually managed to turn the water off before the bathroom flooded, but the faucet was no longer useable. We called the office extension, the emergency extension and the cell number, again with no answer and no way to leave a message. Eventually we got through to someone by contacting booking.com and having them relay a message to the hotel, but no one came to fix the problem during our 2 remaining days in the hotel. So we had a bathroom without a useable sink, and had to brush our teeth, fill water bottles, wash hand, etc. in the shower--not especially convenient, as you might imagine! My guess is that someone dreamed up this do-it-yourself hotel idea as a way to save on staff salaries. The idea might work if they were to provide reliable back-up support if needed, but instead no support was available, even in the face of a plumbing emergency. Completely irresponsible for any hotel--and esp. for the most expensive place we stayed in while in Europe.

Ok the good points first: - the hotel is in a very convenient location, walkable to most major tourists spots and in a nice neighbourhood And now the rest... - there was no hot water from check in on Sunday afternoon through to 7PM on Tuesday night, the night before our check out. I understand problems happen but communication from the hotel was abysmal. They promised a refund during our stay only to renege on that afterwards and offer less than one night's rate back as compensation. - only 1 teabag provided for 2 people and not replenished during our stay - the safe didn't work - room wasn't cleaned during our stay - lots of noise from other rooms, banging doors, shouting etc (not the hotels fault but the lack of staff means there's no deterrent for noisy guests and nobody to complain to if its keeping you awake) Without the issues, this could have been a great stay. But it's a gamble. The hotel is not staffed so when you do have issues (like we did) there's nobody to help. Unfortunately I wouldn't recommend this hotel unless you have no other options.

I stayed here with my mum and it was a great location. We wanted to be away from the touristy Gothic Quarter (a beautiful area but it tends to be pretty busy and over-priced for accom these days - it's better to visit, not stay there!) You can walk pretty much everywhere from here, or jump on a bus or metro. Gracia is a lovely pocket of Barcelona and the property was easy to find. It had a sweet little roof garden to escape to. Entry is via a pin code for the front door and also your room. The property is unattended (no recption desk), although there are people to phone if you need to. This worked fine for us; we simply wanted a base to rest our weary heads at the end of our action-packed days! The nearby Can Codina tapas/bar/cafe was very handy and delicious and there are some really interesting shops on Carrer de Bonavista around the corner. The only drawback with our room was that it was a bit on the small side for 2 people and we were on the ground floor. The weather/room was warm enough that you wanted to open the windows (which are high up) to get some air, but that meant you copped the street noise in close-up which, on a Friday night, was really rowdy til after 3am. The room was a little dark too, because of the window positioning and inadequate 'compensatory' ceiling lighting. I definitely would stay there again but I'd go up 1 or 2 levels. I wouldn't mind facing the street, but there would be way more natural light in the room and the noise might be more diffused.

If you are looking for a no-fuss place to stay in Barcelona then this is for you. Be warned, there is no staff here it is all electronic, but everything worked fine. Our room was clean and comfortable and we loved the location. The restaurants and cool bars in the area were great.

Very good hotel for families. We took the room for 6 and it was very good. The location is exceptional, righ close to diagonal paseo de Gracia. Very good standard for room and bathroom and very reasonably priced. It is the first hotel I visit where you meet no personnel,you are given an access code with the reservation. It worked perfectly for us.

No stuff around when the problems appear. I've been there for 4 days and 3 nights. The first evening I had my safe locked, nobody could come to fix it because, the technician was out of Barcelona. First and second evenings no hot water. Third, came a guest to the hotel, after midnight who wasn't able to get into her room, because the cod number for her room wouldn't open the door so, she came to me asking for help. I thought about her feelings of helplessnes and I let her in into my room in order to call the service. I speak fluently Spanish, so I could display her feelings properl... In all of the cases no immediately help. "Wait until tomorrow..." VERY FRUSTRATING. The good things: great location, good transportation,good shops and good food around.

We were a group of 4 staying in the family suite. The conditions were ok, maybe the pictures from the internet look too fancy. The best of this accommodation is its location, walking distance to Sagrada and Guell (around 20 min). Also, the neighborhood is quiet and you have breakfast options nearby. You do not have a reception and you get inside by using various codes for the doors. In the last 2 days we did not have at all hot water and one of the beds was really unstable and shaking in case you turn during the night. On the bright side, we had cleaning every day and they would change the towels in case you leave them on the floor.

This hotel is virtually non-staffed, but that does not deter from the experience. You receive two codes to enter the property--one code if you arrive before the official "check-in" time of 2:00 p.m. or leave after the official "check-out' time at noon, and one to access the hotel and room during checked-in hours. There is manned phone from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and a number to all for emergencies. The "manual" provided in the room gives all of the information you may need, from metro locations, taxi services, and laundry services, to instructions on how to operate the thermostat. We called twice--once for an iron (which they had) and once to change the time of our airport transportation: more on that below. The cleaning staff were also helpful with our questions. The hotel does have luggage storage and bike storage, but be warned--the cages will not fit large suitcases and they appear to be designed for travelers with backpacks or luggage that fits the overhead compartment in airplanes. My husband and I were planning on chaining our suitcases to the bike rack with the cord-locks we had with us, but we ended up not needing storage. The entire hotel was immaculate. We had Room 3, which is the first room you see upon entering. The hotel has two entrances--a main entrance with a "lobby" of some sort. The lobby has a telephone and several pamphlets for activities to do in the city. There is then another keypad to a set of glass doors to enter the portion of the building where the rooms are. Even though we were in the main traffic area of the hotel, we did not really hear anyone coming in or coming out. There are signs everywhere reminding people that this is a "quiet" hotel and for the most part, everyone seemed to respect that. I heard one couple come in with luggage--one woman came in talking loudly before she was shushed quickly by her traveling companion. The room itself was quite spacious and my husband and I had room to have our three large suitcases open at the same time without blocking doorways or the bathroom (we exported more than we imported--mostly in wine). It was an L-shape around a small open "core" of the hotel that let in sunlight. The room did not have a refrigerator, but had a safe, a tv, a desk, two night tables, a large door/window into the "core" of the hotel facing the door in and another large window by the bed. The bathroom was on the smaller side, but adequate. Water pressure in the shower was good. The bed was a little worn, but comfortable. The hotel has a roof terrace where my husband and I sat and nursed ourselves with a bottle of wine. It's located near the Passeig de Gracia with all of its designer stores, but it's also near the center of the Gracia neighborhood, with two "village squares" where we would go to have tapas and a drink and watch the neighborhood kids and dogs play in the square. There is a main road down the street where we never had any problems hailing a cab. It's a 12-min./8 euro trip to Park Guell and you can walk to Casa Mila and Casa Battlo from the hotel (5-10 min. and 10-15 min. respectively). We didn't drive in, but there are two parking lots with extended stay parking within 2-3 blocks of the hotel. There is also a laundromat (with laundry service if you like) about four blocks away. If you exit the building and turn left and keep going up the "street" (it changes names several times), you'll eventually come to one of the squares--when you enter the square, stay to the right and it will be at the end of the square on your right. If you want a relaxing, quiet time in Barcelona away from the main tourist traps and near good food and drinks, this is the perfect hotel.
