Stayed here over the weekend for a break with friends.
I chose this hotel for its central location and reasonable price.
From the airport we got the Aerobus which departs just outside arrivals. A return ticket was just under 10 Euros and it took about 25 minutes to Plaça Catalunya. The hotel is about a 1 - 2 minute walk from here.
The hotel is just next to La Rambla which leads down to the Harbour. On the same street as the Hotel were a few cafés and shops.
The hotel was clean and had a classic style which I personally found quite appealing.
Our twin room was an adequate size and was located on the third floor with a view of a surrounding street. The bathroom had toiletries and clean towels. The room had just enough storage for a weekend break. There was a TV but we didn’t use it. There is a safe in the room and costs 1.5 Euros per night. The mattresses were very firm.
The staff were friendly and informative on arrival. If we needed any advice they were happy to help.
- The tourist tax is 0.75 Euros per person per night for this Hotel payable on departure.
- If you are returning to the Hotel late at night / early morning be aware of unsavoury characters at the end of the street where it meets La Rambla. We saw unaware tourists talking to them who may have found their money and phones missing when they returned home. Not at all a reflection of the Hotel but just be aware!
- Take a walk to Boqueria Market for a look around and some Tapas.
Overall Barcelona was a fantastic city for a weekend break, especially with the warm weather and great food and drink. We found most of the people friendly and genuine; just keep your wits about you and your belongings safe.
