Next To Hotel is for the most part a great little boutique hotel. Positioned on the Passeig de Gràcia - known for its designer apartment stores, and around the block from the famous La Pedrera apartment building, it's location is perfect for sightseeing around Barcelona. It's easy to find your way to the nearest Metro station which is walking distance away as well. Plenty of great little restaurants around the hotel too.
The accommodation itself is adequate, albeit a bit worn. Rooms are small, but importantly - clean. The only real problem we had with the room was a safe that didn't have a lock on it. We stayed in a forward facing room which had a balcony overlooking the street. Can be quite noisy if you leave your balcony door open, but this can be expected with the traffic below. There is also no cupboard space, bags are stored on a low shelf with an open rail above for hanging space.
The hotel has a communal deck on the roof with deck chairs and showers. You can also see the roof of the La Pedrera.
Breakfast is offered, but for the price you're better off going to one of the cafés in the area.
If, like us, you plan on being out and about for most of your time here, then this reasonably priced hotel is a winner.More
