Finding a hotel in central Barcelona having a vacant room for 4 persons and serving breakfast (demanded by our children) wasn't easy, but this one fit the bill. Easily found using GPS, with a car park below (20 euros per day, after 50% hotel discount), and just a short walk from the metro. The free wifi that worked well. The room (apartment, really) had ample space for a family of four, but looked a bit "worn", could do with at least a stroke of paint... When they had a shower in the room above, we had a small one as well, through the bathroom ceiling... Cleaning was so so, leaving a dirty bath tub one day, never replacing the soap (30 ml of soap for 4 persons for 4 nights is a bit on the cheap side). The breakfast was OK, I suppose, you could choose between two different jams, one sort of cheese, and a selection of sticky, sweet pastry... Poor coffee (possibly the only one in Spain?) and yellow-stained water called "juice". Apart from that, it was quite OK, no more, no less.

The hotel location is good and close to attractions, and is 5 mins walk to subway. But as an APARTMENT hotel, it does not even have separate bedrooms. The big room is simply partitoned into two by a shelf unit. There is not even any room for the TV or the writing desk. Most awkward of all is that the washroom cannot even be locked, and there is no exhaust fans installed there. We did have a pleasant stay because of the friendly staff at the front desk.

We stayed at the Atenea Calabria for our first two nights in Spain. The apartments are clean and although not luxurious, have everything you need: comfortable bed, handy kitchenette, separate sleeping area for the kids (we travelled with a 4 and 7 year old) and best of all a balcony!

This is not the hotel to stay in if you are looking for a tranquil night's sleep, the walls are thin and there is plenty of street noise - but are you really in Barcelona to sleep? This did not affect the quality of our stay, in fact it probably made us feel closer to the pulse of the culture.

There are plenty of places to eat around the hotel and we made good use of the market next door. The walk to the Joan Miro park, the Plaza Espanya and the Arenas Barcelona was perfect for a family afternoon in Barcelona. We would stay here again.

The apartment-hotel concept is a new one to us, but we very much enjoyed our stay here. The addition of a kitchenette meant that we could prepare a couple of things for breakfast. Handily there is a supermarket under the hotel. The free wifi worked well, but did require logging into the system every time you opened the computer. Our only complaint was that when we were staying the corridor did get a bit noisy at about 6am - not great on a Sunday morning.

We stayed in this Hotel for 2 nights and it is located very close to Plaza Espana (5mnt walking) so you can start your Barcelona tour from there. The rooms are confortable and very clean. Perfect for groups or families. The staff is super and very friendly! There are plenty of shops and restaurants around. Perfect hotel for a great price.
