This is a brilliant 2 star hotel in the most central location. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with a safe. The bathroom had a bath and towels were changed daily. I had a small balcony looking over the Placa Oriel which gave a wonderful atmosphere. I used earplugs and slept very well. The staff were very helpful and the free computer was essential due to the pending general strike.
I shall certainly return and would happily reccomend.

Room Tip: The outer rooms are lovely but noisy

If you want to visit Barcelona and save some money, this is the hotel to pick. It's located just two steps away from La Rambla in a very cozy street close to wonderful breakfast and dinner places.

Room Tip: If they have availability, I recommend choosing room 15. It's right above the lobby, where they...

Just returned from three nights at El jardi. Located in a lively square of the Gothic quarter, the location is unbeatable with dozens of appealing bars and restaurants within minutes. The cafe immediately outside was a great place for soaking up the sun over breakfast! Staff were friendly and welcoming (despite us not arriving until 1am) and our twin room was clean and well laid out, if rather small. We slept with the window open, and were not disturbed until the street entertainers started around 9am. Having stayed in several other budget hotels in Barcelona, I would definitely recommend this one for a good night's sleep in a safe, friendly and atmospheric location.

Our hotel in Barcelona was nice. It was in a central location just down a street off of La Rambla in a small plaza. The area was relatively quiet for such a busy city but was close and walking distance to everything (well minus all Gaudi’s work but thats to be expected). Our rooms were quite tiny but they had air conditioning and all amenities we would need to be comfortable!

Unfortunately, my brother and I were very disappointed with our 3 night stay at El Jardi. He had stayed there five years ago and gotten a room on the top floor with a huge roof/terrace. We thought we were booking the same room, though we got a different room on the top floor with a smaller terrace (though this is not El Jardi's fault) it set the tone for our continued disappointment. The rules of the hotel permit ANY visitors (though this was not the case 5 years ago). A friend of mine from back in the USA is studying in Barcelona and she was not allowed to come in with us. Also, they will ask you to leave the lobby area after a relatively short time (we were told by one concierge that there is a FIVE MINUTE LIMIT IN THE LOBBY?!?!)

Considering that it is the only place we were able to get wifi and communicate with the world we left behind, this seemed ridiculous.

The walls are boring and white (though they finally put up some paintings in the lobby be the time we left). The one photo/drawing in our room was not quite pleasant, and the overall experience was not very impressive. The location is great, but for the money you can certainly live better in Barcelona.... For the same price our hotel in Madrid was about ten times as good (friendly, helpful, nice interior, beautiful views...)

If you don't plan on ever being in your hotel, and if you preferably have a phone that works in Barcelona, this hotel may not be so bad, but for us it was a let down.

I stayed here at the end of October 2011. I chose a Standard Interior room which obviously was dark as I didn't have windows, but I didn't have any noise problems either! The airline lost my bag and the staff were helpful saying it will probably take a few days. It did arrive eventually and the next day another staff member checked to see if my bag had arrived. They also suggested some places to buy some necessities. My room was on a low floor so I was able to connect to wifi which was great. The room itself was very clean and it was a nice room. I also had a bath.. Location was great and I could walk to the airport bus in about 10 mins. There was also a metro on La Rambla. The foyer was great as you could sit on the balcony and look over the square.
