I was a bit worried at first, having read previous reviews, that this hotel was in a 'rough' area. However, I must say I did not feel that this was the case at all. The hotel is located off a main road in Barcelona and there are plenty of people around. There were far worse streets in Barcelona.
I arrived on Sunday evening as a Solo Traveller as my friends were staying in a Hostel around the corner. My first room was overlooking the main street and I though it was a little noisy for me. I immediately asked for a room transfer which was done immediately and the staff were very pleasant whilst this was done. My new room faced away from the road and was very quiet.
On the first morning I was awoken by the cleaners outside my door having a chat. However this was mostly my fault as I had forgotten to put the 'do not disturb' sign on my front door. Having done this the cleaners were quiet for the next two nights I stayed there having left the sign on!
Overall this hotel was good value for money, central (10 minute walk to the beach and La Ramblas) and only two minutes walk from the nearest metro. The staff were very friendly (they were almost apologetic when they asked to pay the 'tax' that all hotels charge in Barcelona) and upon my arrival explained where all the landmarks were. The room was clean, of a decent size and modern. I would definetly recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for a good hotel at a reasonably price. The only recommendation I would make is for those people, like me, who are light sleepers to request a room not facing the main road.
