We stayed in El Canton during a weekend trip to Barcelona. The Hotel is located in an area with a lot of nightlife, and during some nights the level of noise of yelling party people passing by was quite substantial. Our room (our friends stayed in a different room which looked nicer) was small, outworn, the cushions of the chairs where full of stains, and the sofa had cigarette burns. Directly under the bed sheets there was a layer of plastic foil making sleep not really a pleasure. The price for a double room without breakfast was 65 Euros, not too much, but I'm sure that you can get something cleaner, quieter, and nicer for that price.

Great location towards the bottom of the Rambla- we thought it was perfect. Barcelona is one of those cities that doesn't sleep and can't imagine the noise factor in hotels further up in the busier areas of the Rambla. Very close to metro stop. The staff was very helpful. We were at the end of our stay and needed to print out boarding passes. We paid to do a few minutes on the internet at the hotel and then emailed the boarding passes to the hotel. That being said, when an older gentleman was manning the desk, he did not know what to do to access and print them. The younnger people at the desk quickly pulled them up and printed them for a tiny fee. We did not eat the breakfast (we had early morning tickets for the Sagrada Familia one day and an early departure to the airport the next day). I did peak into the dining room and it looked amazing for the price. The bathroom looked recently renovated and done in nice shades of beige and browns with mother of pearl accent tiles. Another bonus was having a refrigerator.

We have stayed at the hotel in September 2012. Initially we decided that we wanted a hotel in the very city centre within a walking distance from La Rambla.
The reviews were good, as well as the price. Breakfast is not included, but we ordered breakfast once and it was quite good.
The room was clean and tidy. There was just one major minus - right from our window we had a view of a construction site with all the accompanying noise and bits of dust. But work on the site started not too early and was no longer in process when we were coming back to the hotel in the late evening. So it is fine if you plan to be outside the hotel during the daytime.
The staff was very friendly and helpful.
We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms that don't go to the entrance side.

Hotel in a good location only 3 minutes walk from Drassanes metro station, just off the Ramblas. Close to several good local restaurants and bars and a couple of small 'supermarkets'.
Clean and tidy rooms. Ours was a touch on the small side but perfectly functional. Small bath but excellent shower, hot and powerful. Also, a fridge and safe in the room.
Friendly staff and decent enough communal areas. Excellent option for budget travellers would stay again if I return to Barcelona.

We stayed here for a night only (19th October) as we were going on a cruise. I booked this hotel after the great reveiws I read online....and I wans't disappointed. The Hotel is very clean, the Location is awesone just off las ramblas with nice cafeterias all around. Pedro at the Front desk was very helpful and friendly. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone.
Rooms maybe a bit small but they are very nice and comfy and the toilets and showers are very clean. breakfast is really good in the Morinings as well. Great for a short stay or maybe even a week.

Room Tip: Definitely recommended.
