I hesitated between three and four stars on this one, settling for four because the staff were so helpful and friendly, keeping our bags for us after check-out until we caught the afternoon bus. The location is ideal for first-timers to get to grips with Barcelona, being near metro lines and several key districts - a stroll to the Barrio Gotic, and the Boqueria food market for example - and just a few minutes from where the airport shuttle terminates in Placa Catalunya. It's on the first floor of an old-fashioned apartment block but the rooms are strictly minimalist/modern with very few furnishings. Beautifully clean, and with nice linen and very comfortable beds, the trouble is that there is no sound-proofing between rooms or rooms and central lobby so every time someone enters their room the door bangs as loudly as if it's your own - not much fun if you are trying to sleep. Also the air-con was going on and cutting out all night and we couldn't turn it off. We loved the balcony and tall shuttered windows though, and the price was pretty reasonable (no breakfast, or drinks facilities except hot and cold water in the lobby - but we enjoyed going out for a morning coffee in local cafe anyway). We'd consider using it again, but would pack ear plugs.
