Reviewed March 6, 2014

I stayed here for the second half of my trip to Barcelona.

If you're after something a little better than a hostel, but you're still on a budget, this is a good option.

My single room was small and very basic. I did have my own bathroom (there are options for shared bathrooms) and it was clean.

I didn't make use of the breakfast option, so I can't comment on the food.

It is however about as central as you can get. On the corner of Placa de Catalunya, right on La Ramblas.

When my sister and I were checking out different hotels in Barcelona, we had one thing in mind: Location. This hotel is smack right in the centre of Plaza Catalunya. Everything is literally right at your doorstep. Although you're in the middle of it all, the street noise did not seem distracting - almost non-existent when in the room. It was also reasonably priced considering its location. Rooms are quite dated but we had a lovely view of the Plaza from our own terrace and the blankets were not very nice but these were just small things - we cared more that the room was clean and safe. The reception guys were very friendly - gave us little tips and told us where to get good deals with tours etc. I would definitely consider staying at this hotel again and already recommended a friend to stay here.

Room Tip: When booking online, request for a room with a terrace - you'll have the best view of the Plaza.

I stayed in this hotel because I was coming back from Lanzarote and couldn't get a same day flight back to Qatar. The location is great, just few minutes away from the Aerobus terminal going to the airport. Shops are right down the stairs. The room though looks old and their blankets are not very nice. The hallways are narrow and the walls are thin. I dont think it is worth paying for the breakfast. After I ate breakfast, I had to go downstairs and have another breakfast at McDonald's. Staff are friendly. This would be a good place to stay for a night.

Considering you're talking about a two stars hotel in the heart of Barcelona Plaza Catalunya and that the price is really convenient, you shouldn't ask for a lot. Anyway, consider that rooms are gloomy, old fashioned and, most of them facing an ugly wall. Nothing really important is you don't care about it. A good option for a couple of nights.

Dear Patricio

many thanks for your review. We really appreciate you opinion since it allows us to point out one important feature of our hotel: it is not true that most of our rooms "facing an ugly wall". Actually the majority of our rooms are external and facing Pelayo Street or The Ramblas. Nevertheless we have some other rooms that are internal, but not for this reason they are worse than others: a lot of guests prefer to stay there in order to be far from the noise of the street. It just depends on the preferences of each person.

Thanks also for your opinion about our location and our convenient rates: you are definitely right!

Kindest regards.

Amid other Barcelona hotels with their sky-rocket prices, this hotel was more reasonably priced. An additional positive is its great location at the top of the Ramblas. Then when a taxi is needed, the taxl stand is just across the street by the Plaza.
The hotel room was modest but yet clean and comfortable. Although the room was located overlooking the Plaza, the street noise did not seem distracting. The hotel offered a breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, the check-in staff did not make any mention of it when I queried about recommendations for breakfast.
Overall in summary, I would consider staying at this hotel again during my next visit to Barcelona.

The hotel has a very good location at the Ramblas and Placa Catalunya. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was not very rich but still not bad at all. The whole hotel would need some remodeling...
