“Nice Central Hotel”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Just returned from a long weekend to Barcelona and stayed in this lovely hotel which is central to the Las Ramblas area. Idea location for touring around the local sites, shopping and various restaurants and bars within easy walking, and a short 5/10 minute walk you can get the tourist bus to visit all the sites around the area or the metro.

The hotel was quite basic but clean, I requested a quiet room at the back of the hotel and did not get disturbed by any noise that had been mentioned on previous reviews. The staff were friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast good. I would certainly return to this hotel for any future trips to Barcelona. It would have been nice to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room but hey ho did not spoil our trip.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back of the hotel as street level could be noisy.

We stayed at this great little hotel for 3 nights prior to joining a cruise ship. Room was very small but clean and comfortable and mid-hotel (i.e. not at front or back) so reasonably quiet, although one night there were fireworks going off until quite late. Breakfasts were plentiful, with good choice and pleasant relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good location, with easy access to lots of good restaurants and bars, plus some interesting little shops. All in all, good value for money (booked through British Airways) and would recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back of building if possible..

A good hotel well situated for most of the city's attractions but, and a big but, the noise through the night. Several bars located nearby open until 3 AM not so much a noise problem as the continuous skate boarding and shouting youths. If you stay here book an interior room. Breakfasts were good quality and rush free - 7 till 11.

Room Tip: Book an interior room.

Hotel location reasonable although at first it appeared to be in a rundown area, but you only have to go a couple of blocks to find up and coming shops, restaurants and bars. University just around the corner so plenty of young people about. The hotel itself is clean and staff polite and helpful. Continental breakfast good and plenty of it, apart limited choice of fresh fruit. Room size is not as big as it appears online but adequate and clean. Housekeeping excellent as room was cleaned daily and sheets and towels changed regularly. Quiet location yet close to La Rambla, Placa de Catalanya and Placa de Universitat.

We recently stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. Staff were polite and helpful. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was very good. It is located 5 min walk away from the Placa de Catalunya, which is a transport hub of Barcelona. It is only 3 min walk away from La Ramblas.

Room Tip: I would stay again in this hotel

We were meeting friends of ours in Barcelona and they booked this hotel. We looked at it on the net, and the position looked great. We also booked this hotel and we spent some very wonderful days in this beautiful city. The hotel is only a 5-8 minute walk to the Rambla and the restaurants. A 10-15 minute walk to the Barcelona Cathedral (a must for visitors). The service at the hotel was first class,gets a bit noisy if you have a room at the front of the hotel as this place never seems to go to sleep..youngsters on skateboards are a bit noisy..other than that this place, although classified as a two-star is very central to everything and the staff are very good. No hesitation to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: If possible, book a room at the 'back' of the hotel.

Asked for and got a quiet interior room. Hard bed and lousy pillows. Generally quiet except when other guests in hallway. Good breakfast but couldn't eat on lovely terrace cause that's where all the smokers are. Convenient location one block from metro and 10 minutes from rambla. Very basic. If you want something special this is not for you.
