My husband and I stayed here last May but I just realized I forgot to write a review. We read a lot of reviews online that we shouldn't stay on Las Ramblas so we stayed here upon the recommendation of a friend. This hotel is in a perfect location! It's in an area called Catalunya which is full of shopping and restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to the double decker city bus and touristic center to book other trips. It is less than 10 minutes from Las Ramblas and if you really feel up to it, you can even walk to La Barceloneta (the beach) which is probably about a 30 minute walk. The front desk staff is very nice and super helpful. Very knowledgable about touristy type questions as well.
The hotel itself is very tiny and quaint. Typical European style. The good thing is, while in Barcelona, you will barely spend any time in the hotel. The room itself is super small but the bathroom is a very nice size. The hotel is very modern and clean. There is a courtyard area on the roof with lounge chairs that is really nice. There is no kitchen or bar on premises but food and drinks can be found right next door and all around the area.
We spent 4 days there and one day we did the double decker bus tour which I would highly recommend to see all of Gaudi's work. We also did a day trip to Montserrat- just took the train out there which was super easy. The views were just gorgeous. We went to a flamenco show, visited the impressive W Hotel, ate some great food, got lost in Boqueria, hung out at the beach, partied with the locals and walked the entire city. It was an amazing trip in one of the most amazing cities. And this hotel made all of it a little more enjoyable and a lot easier!
