“Good, cheap stay in central Barcelona”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Really good place to stay in central Barcelona! Decent sized room with comfy bed, good sized bathroom and desk.

On the same street as two of Gaudi's designs and close to the Sagrada familia and park Güell.

Decent complimentary breakfast too.

Private rooms are extremely hot,no air conditionning, only small fans that do not help much. Rooms on the avenue super noisy,to avoid in summer, as it is impossible to sleep with the window closed. 1st room we got had the bathroom outside the room in the corridor whereas we had paid to have a private bathroom IN the room. no doble bed for couple,only rooms with 2single beds. Breakfast absolutely disgusting, a joke for 70euros per night! common dorms are ok, but avoid booking private rooms there, you can find much better hotel for the price. location is ok but not ideal either.

Room Tip: ask for a room with window on the patio, not avenue. no rooms have air conditionning, avoid this hot...

We had an ok stay at Nikbor because of its central location and it was within our budget however we were very disappointed at having money stolen from our room when it was being cleaned. We immediately alerted the staff who ignored our concern at having $100 euro and $100 US taken from the room while we were out and inferred that it was our fault for having money in our room and that maybe we had made a mistake. They then proceeded to tell us that the housekeeper was very trustworthy and would never do such a thing. The fact that she had found the money highlighted that she been through our suitcases as we did not packed our valuables in our suitcases and closed them but not locked them.

The room itself was basic but clean and the bathroom fine. But don't leave anything in the room that can be taken easily.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bathroom

Location couldn't be better. You can go directly to/from the airport. You can even walk to the port. Subway 50m away. Staff friendly and helpful but with poor english. Breakfast very tasty. Room and bathroom very basic but rather clean - apart from walls. Don't expect to much for this price in this location. It was really noisy. When I was inside the room I thought that it was raining, I was wrong, you can here what was going on in all bathrooms and toilets.... If you are looking for a place to sleep, not far away from town centre I can recommend it.

Couldn't find anything better given the budget available. A quadruple room for a mere 15€/person/day with clean sheets and towels (changed twice a week), breakfast, neat shared bathroom, free wifi and almost all of the staff were pretty nice. Great if you just need a bed to crash and rest for the night.

Stayed here for 1 night, 04/17/2012. We did not expect much, however our sheets were clean, the room was warm. The bathroom was ok. Shower, toilet and sink were wiped down, however they did not sweep or mop, so we wore our shoes the whole time. This was not a quiet location, as the hallways echoed whenever people walked by or talked. It was not a big deal for us though. The front desk reception was very friendly and breakfast was basic, but very good. Super close to metro stop Diagonal.
