“Great value hotel...superb location.”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Just returned from 3 nights stay and all I can say is what a little gem and agree with most other trip advisor comments. Hotel modern and simply furnished but spotlessy clean. Bedroom a decent size with king size bed albeit slightly firm. Flat screen TV but could do with an English channel as well as CNN. Good size bathroom and large power shower with toiletries provided. Only negative is no tea or coffee in the room but plenty of free bottled water on each landing plus free wi fi. No bar in hotel so no problem with your own wine and beer in room. Lovely roof terrace and small pool...great for a drink before going out in the evening. Didn't have breakfast but lovely Demasie over the road is superb. Location great 10 minutes walk from Las Ramblas, Bari Gotic and Port Vell but discover the Born district near the Picasso Museum. There may be a lot bigger hotels with more amenities but this ticks all the boxes and is great value for money. Can't wait to go back!

Recently renovated small hotel in BCN's for me the best area. Historical quarters with most amenities withing walking distance (beach, plentiful selection of restaurants, subway station).

A small roof top pool with sundeck chairs adds to the charm (might get crowded though).

PS! Rates were really good when we stayed, so it attracted a young crowd - Scandinavians (as me) doin' some serious partying).

Breakfast is average, and you might wanna check out nearby bars to cover your hunger for coffee and morning fix.

This hotel is situated in a great location in Barcelona. Its a 5 minute walk to the Picasso museum and the streets surrounding the hotel are filled with loads of great coffee shops and funky restaurants. The rooms are a very comfortable size and clean and modern. The bathroom was actually very large for a hotel bathroom. There is wifi in all rooms as well as access to computers with internet access on all floors. The rooftop has a pool and deck which is great for a dip on a ht afternoon. The breakfast downstairs in the adjoining asian restaurant was excellent. Everything you would want from pastries to a cooked breakfast to fruit and cereals. So all in all a brilliant basic hotel which i can highly reccommend.

This hotel is in an excellent location with plenty of lovely cafes and restaurants nearby. The hotel is clean, comfy and complete with powerful shower! Noise wasn't an issue despite the hotel being located on a fairly busy street. The area around the hotel was well lit at night and felt safe - we didn't have any problems with pickpockets/scams on La Rambla and so on. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Just returned from 2 nights in beautifully warm November sun. Hotel great location, just a short walk to anything and everything. Staff friendly. Room great with balcony onto front street which wasn't noisy considering middle of city. Every immaculately clean, free water great addition. We didn't eat in the hotel but had breakfast across the road in the fabulous cafe Demasie which was 12 euros for 3 breakfasts. We were really concerned about pickpockets etc having read and heard lots of negative press however we used common sense and felt very safe throughout. Highly recommend and can't wait to return to a lovely city.

We stayed here at the recommendation of a meeting organizer and it turned out to be a great choice as a base station for exploring Barcelona. The hotel is on C/Princesa and very close to the El Born district, the Picasso museum and tons of restaurants and shops. The rooms were clean and modern -- we had a balcony from which we could look at the length of C/Princesa. They had free WiFi and also free bottled water, which was truly a first for us at any hotel and was a great convenience. We also liked the Internet access on first floor where we could check in and print our boarding passes for free.

The hotel is unassuming from the front, but great inside. A short walk away is the Jaume I station on metro line L3 from where you can go to other places. La Rambla is 15 minutes walk straight along C/Princesa and the Parc de la Ciutadella is just 5 minutes away on the other direction. All in all, we'd definitely stay here again on our return visits to Barcelona.

Room Tip: We had a 3rd floor room with a balcony overlooking C/Princesa, which was nice.
