“Adequate and charming”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This hotel is well located close to shopping, as well as sightseeing, and public transportation. Our room was on the front of the hotel facing the little patisserie we favored for breakfast. With a small balcony, we had a birds eye view of activity up and down the street. Street noise was not a problem for sleeping, probably because the hotel is on a side street. Although the room was small, we had room to unpack and move around. The bath was nice size with a tub and shower, and great water pressure.

Room Tip: Some travelers found the street noise a bit much on the front rooms, but we did not.

Perfect location in quiet pedestrian street, close to La Rambla, Pl Catalunya and Metro. 3 minute walk from Aerobus stop. The desk staff spoke excellent English and were very helpful and polite. The room was clean tidy, serviced every day, and had everything you would expect in a city centre hotel. The hotel had a quaint old fashioned décor brought up to date with good colours. We had the breakfast option which was a typical Spanish selection, not to everyone's taste but very normal for Spain, well presented and offered in a pleasant dining room. We didn't eat any other meals there and had all other meals out in the town. Barcelona is expensive if you try to eat in or near the La Rambla, we found some eatery's close but off the main streets and found pleasant helpful waiters and good food.

We stayed here 15-17 October and found it to be in an excellent
location very close to La Rambla and Placa Catalonia. Considering it was so central the price was reasonable. Although the room was basic it was spotlessly clean.

The hotel is in perfect location tucked away in a quiet street just a short walk to Las Ramblas the metro and hop on hop off buses.

The hotel is clean and efficiently run and the staff offer advice about Barcelona.

Our room at the back was large and quiet with good bed linen. The breakfast selection looked good but we didn't eat any meals in the hotel.

There appears to be numerous small hotel options within walking distance of Las Ramblas and this was a good one for us. Situated on a pedestrian street a minute or two off Las Ramblas, near to Metro, and walkable from the Pl. Catalunya terminus of the Aerobus (highly recommend that to and from the airport). Our room was clean, spacious and culturally charming. English spoken well at reception and helpful recommendations were given. We declined the expensive breakfast option --the bakery across the street worked well for a reasonable coffee and croissant to start our day. Hotel internet is pricy - but we were able to get good free access - so try that first before spending the money for the hotel access. We would stay here again.

We recently stayed at this hotel and you cannot beat the location. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. The beds however were like sleeping on a piece of plywood. The location makes this hotel hard to beat for the price.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in July. It's location in the Gothic Quarter just off La Rambles is ideal as most tourist attractions are within walking distance. W e walked along Pg.de Garcia to view the Modernista architecture to Sagrada Familia & then to the Arc de Triumph & Parc de la Ciutadellain in one afternoon. We did the hop on/off bus for Park Guell & Montjuic as well as getting an overview of the city.The bus to/from the airport stops at Placa de Catalunya about 5 minutes from the hotel. The room is small but lean & comfortable. The included breakfast was delicious. The hotel staff were very courteous & helpful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for good value in an awesome location
