“nice rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

nice big room with a terrace, on 6th floor with good view, which we couldn't enjoy very much because it was raining hard all over our weekend stay. Well located, central, breakfast buffet not bad, good wi-fi, The reception was a bit slow at check-in. I recommend this hotel if you enjoy using your hotel room - if you want to just visit the city a lot and come to the hotel for sleeping, you can probably find equal quality for less money.

We are really enjoying our stay in this small hotel....we have been here for a week. The location is minutes from La Rambla and Placa Catalunya. Free Wifi, a huge bonus for me. There are many restaurants around, and our favourite is Celler de Tapas in Universitat Square. That will have to be another review. The staff at our hotel are so nice and very helpful. Taxis arrive in 2 minutes although we have walked to everything we need to except for our rainy days. All of the tours we booked start within a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The hotel bar is very quiet so we bring our own wine or cava down and make ourselves at home...no one seems to mind. The rooms are small but clean with hardwood floors, the bed is kings size and comfortable but ask for extra pillows. Large flat screen hotel but no english channels. Very little cupboard space...I was able to unpack but my husband lived out of his suitcase.

Our only complaint (and we were a group of 11) is about the breakfast. The eggs were always cold and the bacon uncooked even though we told them several times. Perhaps a warming pan with a lid would be helpful. Also they couldn't seem to keep a supply of fruit yogurt on hand, not a big deal but that is what i like for breakfast. However there are lots of other things to have like croissants, toast, fruit etc. There are lots of places nearby for cheap breakfasts if you don't want to pay the extra at this hotel for it.

I would definitely come back to this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that looks out over the houses behind the hotel with their lovely gardens. Some room...

A hotel in the middle of almost everything in upper Barcelona. Close to Placa Catalonia. The rooms on the 6 floor have big terrasse, no sunchairs, but it was a bit early for this in the start of April. There was some work going on in the Hotel between 09.00 and 17.00, but that dosent affect us in any negative way, cause we were mainly out walking the street this time of the day. We dosent try the breakfast cause there was several places right outside the hotel serving breakfast. Internet access in the room. We cant complain of anything in this hotel, grate!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 6 floor, with terrasse.

Getting there - from Barcelona Sants railway station, take the metro green line to Espanya station, then change to red line and get off at Universidat. Look for the Placa Universidat exit. Once you see Starbucks, it's one block away along Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes on the same side of the road as Starbucks.

Great little hotel. Good location, not at all in a seedy area, close to Placa Catalunya. Terrific access to the internet, there are so many 'channels' and it's free. Room was adequate, as a solo traveller I wasn't expecting anything big. The shower is fantastic, great water pressure which was just what I needed. Also very quiet at night!

It would be perfect if they had an English news TV channel e.g. CNN or BBC, and if they supplied facial tissues. Otherwise very happy and would definitely stay here again, or recommend it to friends and family.

ADVANTAGES:
- Very closed to Metro station and Plaza Catalunya.
- Very kind hotel personal.
- Wi-Fi connection is perfect.

NEGATIVES :
- Too small and narrow wardrobe. Impossible to hang 4-5 pieces of wears. We could not close it when we hanged a couple of wears. We had to put our some wears on the desk and chair. As a result, the appearance of the room was not good...Inside of room seems Arabic bedouin tent...
- Too small room for 2 people.
- The pillows smoke cigarette. The hotel management must store the pillows and bedspreads in good conditions and keep them from people who smoke cigarette.
- Only 1 chair in double room. Although we demanded a second one, no chance to get it.
- Poor breakfast. Ordinary European hotel breakfast...We were expecting Mediterranean breakfast in this Mediterranian city... more type of cheese, olives etc...

went with two other girls for a birthday weekend.. brilliant location- near the stop for the airport bus. Immaculately clean and comfy rooms, good temperature. we had a triple- beds were comfy and sofa bed good size and comfy if a bit creaky! Mini bar with reasonable prices. we had a small terrace area looking out at the back of houses- nothing special but nice to have a little table outside. could do with tea/coffee making facilities. didnt have breakfast as 13 euros but looked nice- there is a nice cafe literally 2 doors up with nice omelette/toast/coffee etc for 6.50.
great position- short walk from Ramblas- (10min) or a hop on metro. good restaurants and cafes etc everywhere nearby. friendly staff, a tiny bar/sofa area but didnt see anyone using it. would definately return but with a travel kettle!
