Located just off the Las Ramblas and a couple of minutes walk to the sea this small family run hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was small but very clean and fitted with new and modern amenities. The small television provided in the room was great; didn't watch any of it! but the usb port on the telly was great to charge my iphone and sony walkman!.
Air-con worked very well, and also had no problems with the shower and running hot water.
The reception can be slow however when the owners(?) were working, but there was a rotation of staff throughout our stay at the hotel with the other reception staff being very friendly and helpful.
Free wi-fi in the hotel rooms and free beach towels were also available for rental.
Also the hotel is walking distance (15minutes) to the Franca Train Station which will take you to the airport. (1 interchange on the same platform)
Breakfast is worth skipping at the hotel however, and go to the Boquieria market instead.
(5-10 Mins walk)
Would stay again. :)
