This is a one star hotel so the hotel itself is very basic. I am rating 4 stars because of the location. Located between the beach and trendy Born area. Easy to walk everywhere from the hotel. Also close to the metro station, Barceloneta. As previous reviewers mentioned, the room is very noisy. While the room was located away from...

It's really a 1-star hotel with just sleeping and shower. They say that breakfast is available but you have to go to another hotel for it. Wifi speed not good, no air conditioning. There was a machine kept in the room for cooling which made a loud noise, and didn't even cool very effectively. It's exhaust pipe fell down in...

This hotel was in a very good location - you can walk anywhere really. Loved that aspect. Also, the staff were friendly and the rooms were relatively clean. However I would not stay here again mainly because when it says it has "air conditioning" it actually means a massive portable machine that is attached to the wall in the room...

Small room, no proper air conditionning. Location is perfect in the Born area near pubs and restaurants few minutes from beach. Nice guy at the reception we could leave our luggages before check in. Check out must be before 12.

It's a really cheap hotel for the city centre of Barcelona. The hotel is really close to the harbour. The metro station Barceloneta is only 5 minutes walk away. The hotel is in a quiet street in a house with flats on the second floor. The room is not that big and the walls are very thin, so you can...

I stayed in this hotel when travelling on a Eurail Pass after graduate school - in 1970. Shared a room with a guy I met on the overnight train from Rome. Those were the days when we were guided by Frommer's Europe on $5 A Day book! Fantastically located near the train station. Seeing it is still around, but modernized,...

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
