    The room was extremely small, there was not enough space even for our baggage. The place is not a real hotel, rather a floor of an apartment building. The reception is round the corner and belongs to another hotel. The entrance was from a street...More

    It was awesome because of location. Right next to the old city, close to the sites. The rooms are small but comfortable. Slept really well! Couldn't have asked for more. Staff were super friendly, which made a big difference!

    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
