location - very good. centre town, walking distance to dock, picasso, cathedal so on
reception service - not bad.not smily or babbly or chatty but do the job. 24 hours. connect oustside call to the room. there is safty room to leave luggage after check out for free.
room - twin is slightly larger with bath tub, double has only shower room ( this might be different on another floor)
noise - can be noisy on street side, but the room non street side is darker although quieter. noise can be lound if you stay in peak season or weekends. middle January during a week was very very quiet.
wall - yes thin. I heard next door having shower or dryer
light - dark. might be struggling doing make up for ladies although can be done.
air conditioning (heater) - worked in January, but I don't like air-con so did't use. very cold in the middle of the night. but there is very thick wooly blancket in the shelf underneath safty box. did job. slept well.
morning call - didn't use. if you are worried, set alarm with your mobile.
hair dryer - worked perfectly fine. strong power enough to dry my long hair.
mirror - one in bath room. there is no mirror you can check your whole body
TV - worked fine, english pop and rock music on the radio channel called cooltura
safety box - big enough. very simple to use.
storage - 7,8 hangers. and 3,4 big shleves
breakfast - apparently very bad (my friend had it)
kettle - no. fridge - no although you can have a tea and coffe in cafe(a bit canteen look like) less than a minute walk. and super market opsit too
cleaning - was good enough for me. if you are fatsy, made clutter free in the room so that cleaner can do more job
tourist info - lots of leaflets near reception.
I think we can expect what we paid for. you cannot expect same quality and service in tesco and waitrose, can you? if you are worried about quality that much, pay double or stay somewhere far away from centre. my friend stayed in budget hotel in centre Barcelona several times. she said other places were much worse and most of them ' no lift'(had a trouble with suitcase). for me this hotel was very good for this price.
