3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

If your after quality and class this hotel is not for you. It's noisy, busy, and quite far Fromm the major attractions .

That said it does the basics well enough for the budget traveller. It's got two very handy metro stations on close proximity which will take you pretty much anywhere .

I wouldn't recommend it for a business traveller

Very nice hotel, very good location. I had a single adult room, it was not what I expected. Twin bed and not much room beyond that. The floors are stone which meant sound traveled very well. Wi-Fi is free if you reserve online, but only one device at a time.

Good location, close to metro and train station. Always have to wait at the reception, never enough staff. Standard breakfast, Free Wi-fi is a plus. Generally good enough to got there with this value. In the room there was problems with dryer machine.

Only a quick review as it was only a short break.

Hotel was lovely, roof top pool was wicked and the views were fantastic, staff really friendly and chatty and the location is really nice. It is a little difficult to find, was very hot when we got there and had to walk around for an hour trying to locate it, suffice to say, come out of the station, past McDonalds and then......look behind you....we went straight ahead and missed it completely.....otherwise, really great.

Barcelona is amazing, the attractions are brilliant, we only paid to go on the Camp Nou tour, whing really wasn't worth the entry fee, on a match day I am sure it is great, but just walking around, unguided and which not much in the way of directions, I wasn't overly impressed.

The Olympic park was ace, everything is so well looked after and clean, the open markets are fantastic, the food wonderful and Estrella Beer soooo nice.

I went there thinking such a big city would charge me a fortune for everything, but Food and drink were very reasonable and if you popped to the supermarket, a 6 pack of Estrella cost you around £2

I have been all over the world and I really really liked Barcelona, definitly somewhere I could live!

Great location if you are traveling by train, only a half hour walk to cbd and waterfront. Good standard rooms and restaurant. Great supermarket downstairs. No tea or coffee in room but good cafe downstairs in the same building but not run by the hotel.

Although the food was good, they didn't have my first three choices.

Room not something special. Location good : around 30 min on foot from the centre, but very near two metro stations, and the big train station. Generally a good choice, if someone wants a not so expensive hotel.

Complaint : On line booking from Easytobook.com, it was referred as a room with double bed. When we got there we realised (once more!) that we had to compromise with twin beds.

Nice staff, very helpful. They help you with everything! There is a nice bar at the third floor. The hotel has a good location. Easy way to get from and to the airport. The room was to expensive for what you get in return. It was clean, but there was mold on the ceiling, you could see it very good, it smelled musty. The bed was very hard and not very comfortabel and the room is not cozy. Very basic for the price you pay. Free, but slow WiFi, I could not have Skype conversations. I did not have any soaps in my room the first day, the last day I suddenly got a bathrobe and some complimentary toiletries (shower cap, disposable razor, ..). Very practical, but at the last moment. There was a balcony, also nice, but I could not lock the door.
