Apart from the fact our toilet didn't flush and we couldn't find our room upon arrival everything was absolutely perfect. It's a very clean very modern layout and the lift comes in really handy. The view from the balcony was of the street below and it was really interesting to do a bit of people watching in the evening :)!...

Good location, clean and a very helpful staf. Cheap but you get good value for your money. Close to the metro and you have a foodmarket just one street away. A lot of shops and restaurants in the neighborhood.

Stayed at the Ding Dong Express for two nights. I had trouble getting in with the automated un-manned check-in but booking.com and the assistant, when he arrived, were helpful. It took 30mins to resolve. The room was very basic but it was clean and sufficient for two nights in the centre of town. There was an air conditioning vent but...

The hotel is basic but very clean and the position is great. In the middle of Barcelona, close to the main boulevard and very short taxi / bus trip to the beach. they have a check in machine as not always you will find someone at the reception but if you call the number someone will come asap.

We stayed here in July for 6 nights. The room was small but very clean which is all we required as we spent most our day touring the city. The bed had clean linen along with clean towels and was relatively comfortable. It can get quite noisy in the morning as the city wakes up to get to work but...

Great location. Clean rooms. Secure building. Quiet at night. Worth paying that bit more for your own bathroom!! The only things it needs is a long length mirror and netted/voile curtains for the balcony as people can see into room. I will definitely be back. Highly recommend!!!

We stayed there for 3 nights and it was ok. Not the greatest, we got a very small room, but at least the bathroom was clean and big. They cleaned the room while we were out, but didn't change the sheets. The location is very good, very close to Metro station Diagonal and walking distance to the area Eixample.

Staying in Gracia

Neighborhood Profile
Gracia
Gracia literally stands out from the pack. It used to be an independent town until late into the 19th century. Though it’s just a short commute away from the center, a visit here feels like you’re in a whole different city. The bohemian vibe has drawn many international artists to this area, resulting in a wide selection of galleries, live music and artsy boutique stores. The nightlife is centered around the vibrant Gracia’s plaças, where young and old gather to enjoy a drink outside. Carrer de Verdi, its main street, offers affordable restaurants and a movie theater that screens new as well as classic films in their original language. However Gracia's greatest treasure lies just up the hill at Guell Park, where Antoni Gaudi's vibrant and revolutionary art sculptures stand atop unequaled views of Barcelona.
