“Pleasant hotel in center of Barcelona”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This place identified as 1 star hotel but i would give it more. For little money you can get comfortable and spacious room right in center of Barcelona in 3-5 minutes of walk from Columbus monument where is the La Rambla street is starting. The steert where this hotel is located a little and quiete, no noise in night time ( for me it is important momemt after 7 sleepless nights in terrible Lloret de mar hotel's) In room you can find all the amenities: bath and tolite, climate control, comfortable beds. Everything is new and clean.
Service in hotel was very helpful and friendly with us.
I can't say i find bad sides there, 2 days what i spent in this hotel were only positive. Just no breakfast but for me is not most importants moment if i see the 1 star place no worse than 3 stars=)
So if you are looking for economy variant in center of Barcelona, this place for you=)

a simple and pleasant hotel away from the main streets of barcelona, but just a few minutes away from them.

room was nice and clean and the breakfast (5euro extra) had a good selection of sweets and savory things.
I'd definitely go back.

My visit to Barcelona was a 2 night city break with my sister, so the hotel was a fit to what we wanted: price, location, comfort and a good breakfast.

Price: 70€/night for a double room. You have the basics (towels, soap, shampoo, tv, even a refrigerator)

Location is excelent: 3 min from La Rambla (next to Drassanes Metro station, and Colombo Statue), less than 10 min walk to Plaça Reyal and 15 min walk to Mercat de la Boqueria. With good weather, you can walk by, spending less metro tickets.
One can find small supermarkets on the way to the hotel, as well as restaurants, cafes and even the Wax museum (with a lovely bar called El Bosq de las Fades).

Comfort: Clean and comfortable rooms, for sure. Air condition, tv, hairdrier are some facilities you have.
Although i must point out the noise during the night. Being in Bairr Gotic means you have all the restaurants and bars that keep people drunk during night, so you might catch some loud-people walking by the street Nou de San Francesc. A little bit of noise comes from the elevator, but that was pretty much acceptable.

Good breakfast: for 5€ you can have a full continental breakfast and repeat as much as you want. Thumbs up for that!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near the elevator.

Fantastic location, 2 min walk from La Ramblas and metro station. 25 min walk from Barceloneta beach. So close to La Rambla but you are far from the noise of the street.
Staff very friendly, speaks english very well. They serve breakfast for extra 5 euro.
There is only one thing I wasn't happy with. My room was next to the lift so I could hear people coming and going all the time. Yes my room was also small (tiny) but so what you don't travel to Barcelona to stay in a hotel and watch tv.
