“Good Location”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town with interesting little shops around and restaurants only a minute or two away. It's rooms are fairly basic but very clean and since there is so much to see I can't think it matters as we were only in the room to sleep.The recepion staff were most helpful and unlike some of the other reviews we did not think the area was unsafe at all.We paid around 85 euros per night which for Barcelona is very reasonable.You could pay lots more for a better hotel but I'd rather spend my cash seeing the city !!

The location of this hotel is slap bang in the middle of all the action yet down a quiet alleyway to make sure you dont get disturbed by the noise. The hotel was well priced and the rooms clean and functional.

The staff were very helpful and overall I wouldnt hesitate to comeback again.

I was a victim of pickpocketing, the first time in fifteen years of extensive travelling but it happened a long way from the hotel near the beach. I certainly dont think the surrounding areas are any more prevelant for pickpockets than anywhere else in this city. I will give them credit, they are pretty good at it.

to summarise, good location, good price clean, free wifi and friendly, il be back.

I don' t recommend this hotel : 126 € for a very very small room, with a window situated on a wall at 50 cm, without beakfast included, and no TV ; my first room was not cleaned and the bed was still opened at 6:00 pm ! so I changed.

Dear Guest,

The prices change depending on the dates of the year, these days there was a major event in town and all the hotels were in these prices, in other dates dates, the price is another.

What I can tell about the error on the floor department, which we will take note, is that on the response that helpdesk offered a solution, I understand, it was satisfactory.

Cheap and i'll never let my wife make the hotel arrangements again. Lot's of pickpockets in these narrow lanes (actually i was knocked down for the guy to get my wallet). The beds and bedding are atrocious. Guy at the desk actually leaves and locks the door occasionally leaving you to wait until he returns. The room had an inside window which actually opens and you can peer into the elevator shaft. That means when the elevator is on the same floor as you, your room is dark, but if called and goes to another floor the light shines into your room until someone leaves it again on your floor.
I usually can say I got my monies worth the one night we stayed here since the entire saga makes for good cocktail conversation.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

Dear Guest,

The hotel is located in the tourist area of the city, very close to the
Ramblas and as in many of the major tourist cities there are pickpockets, we recommend caution in this regard, also commenting that the police have strengthened their attention in this area.

Regarding the light, we take note of it and we are glad to know that, for you, it is worth staying in our hotel, hopefully it will be your choice on the next visit to Barcelona.

Best Regards,

ideally situated near Ramblas. a very simple, cheap hotel, just small bedroom, bathroom with shower, built in wardrobe with safe and table plus comfortable bed- all SPOTLESSLY CLEAN!! Modern reception area and VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. If you just want a bed for the night, ideal, with lots of cafes and bars etc nearby for breakfasts, evening meals etc. Don't be put off by apparently run-down outside-the inside is very bright and modern. Only a few minutes walk from Liceu metro station on Ramblas. In winding maze of narrow alleys, easily missed if you don't find directions before you arrive. A big thumbs up!

Room Tip: lift available to all floors-no access problems.

Nice Location in heart of Gothic quarter, walking distance to many great sites and places.
Hotel was clean, no frills, great for the money. Would stay again, light luggage is a plus.
Good for singles and couples, large familys maybe ok as long as you can carry your luggage about 150 ft from the road side to hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear are best quiet and dark, also room on the elevator shaft wasnt bad either pretty q...

Hotel right in the middle of the gothic quarters. Room was small and basic but only really used for sleeping as was out and about all day. Safe which was in room came in handy. Only slight downside was lack of cool air, due to small window which opened out onto back of the hotels ventilation shaft. Value wise, you get what you paid for and this suited us down to the ground as we where on a small budget. Anytime we had contact with staff they where friendly and helpful.
