“Not for the claustrophobic”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

Friendly and efficient staff cant retract from the fact that the rooms were tiny with hardly any space to move around the comfortable double bed. You couldn't bring the proverbial cat into the room let alone swing it! Perhaps other visitors could get bigger rooms but our team of three all suffered from the same limited space issue.
In all cases the AC's were working but not emitting cold air! Thus the tiny rooms heated up like saunas - opening the windows that overlooked the internal guts of the hotel gave some much needed respite.
A loud knock on the door at 9 O Clock went unanswered when I growled back and the maid walking in, unannounced, at 10.30, said it all. The cleaning staff were exceptionally vocal and loud so I got up and found the breakfast restaurant. Well stocked and the only endearing aspect to the whole experience. Try somewhere else.

Four of us stayed for 4 nights. Central location about 5 minutes walk from Plaça de Cataluyna, close to university area. The rooms were very spacious, well equipped, warm and comfortable. They were serviced every day, I cannot fault the standard. There's a bar area which offers reasonably priced drinks. Breakfast is very good quality. All the staff were pleasant and friendly, we requested more pillows and they were delivered immediately. On our day of departure they stored our cases; we left a pair of glasses behind, the hotel found them and safely packed them away.

I have to recommend this hotel for its friendliness, cleanliness, standard and economy. I will seriously consider staying again when I return to Barcelona next year

Stayed here for 4 night and the hotel was very nice. Good, modern, clean room which was spacious and bright with a balcony overlooking the quiet street. Just around the corner was a busy street with lots of good shops and was within good strolling distance from Las Ramblas and Catalunia square. The breakfast was very good but the coffee was not so good but this is only a minor point. The bar had odd opening times but was good for a drink before dinner.

Pleasant Hotel in central location, close to University Metro Station, with a short walk to Las Ramblas. Rather small room, but clean. Bathroom decent size. Breakfast OK. Had a good deal for a weekend break. Would come back again.

Came back from here yesterday after a fantastic city break to celebrate a friends 40th birthday.
The hotel is conveniently situated near to a metro station which made the journey from the airport to hotel very easy by public transport.
With regards to the hotel accommodation all I can say is brilliant. The rooms were spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The reception staff were all really friendly and helped us with any query we had from metro stations and bus numbers to we're the best place to eat on our budget was. Also a special mention to Jimmy who makes the most amazing and reasonably priced cocktails around!!
I would not hesitate at all to go back here. Thank you again to all the staff.
