This hotel is amazing. It's all in the name. We booked on a special offer of only £50 a night for 3 nights but when I tried to book the next time I visited Barcelona It was double that price.
Excellent location right near the water. 2 minutes walk to the nearest tube station. Rooms are quite small but with everything you would need. Exceptionally clean. Spotless in fact! It even smelt nice. Nice big TV with the option to change language to English on certain channels if you fiddle with the settings. Comfy beds. The facilities to cook a basic meal but not many utensils. Barcelona is VERY expensive to eat in restaurants but we just got take away food and ate in our room.
TOP TIP. If buying food from supermarkets (and especially alcohol) avoid purchasing from anywhere near Las Ramblas. Walk about 5 mins in the opposite direction and there are larger supermarkets at half the price.
Could not find one fault with this place. There is the quaintest bar just around the corner which had musical poetry being performed. Only seats 20 at a push. Didn't understand a word but so romantic. Very diverse area so must be open minded.
Great for young couples or groups looking to stay right in the centre of the action and have a little extra to spend on somewhere trendy.
