“Nice Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

We stayed here for 2 nights in October and it was lovely. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, The location was very good (just around the corner from La Rambla). The room was very basic, but had a small fridge and safe at no extra cost. Most importantly it was clean. I enjoyed my stay and would defiantly stay there again.

My wife and I stayed for 4 nights and we had an awesome stay! This was our first trip to Barcelona and we couldn't have asked for a better stay! The hotel is in a great location, just a few minute walk (2 min) from the end of La Rambla, which also has a metro stop, and about a 15 minute walk to Barceloneta and the beaches. The hotel itself was great too. It was surprisingly quiet (we were on the 4th floor and our room was not facing the street) and comfortable. The room wasn't huge but it had more than enough space for 2 people. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was large with a full shower. The staff was also extremely helpful! They allowed us to check into our room hours early, they assisted us with reserving tickets for different excursions online, and they were always friendly and willing to assist us. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better 4 night stay in Barcelona. We will certainly be staying here again when we return!

We stayed here for one night during our time in Barcelona and it's was great for a short stay. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic only a 2 min walk to the port area which is beautiful to walk along and 5 mins from La Rambla. The closet metro stop is Drassanes or Liceu which are on the green line. Was close to great restaurants and tapas bars. The rooms were clean and nice as well as the bathroom. The beds weren't the most comfortable beds but for a short stay they were fine. Overall a great place to stay when visiting Barcelona.

Full marks for the reception staff as they are very welcoming. Breakfast was good as well. Like the previous reviews, the hotel is within walking distance from the Las Ramblas, cruise liner terminal and metro etc. It is also very clean and basic. So do not expect a 4 star accomodation.

Regarding taxi service that is another story. If you arrive after midnight there is no metro or train service so we had to make use of a taxi. As the taxi driver was clearly not from the area she could not locate the hotel so she decided to dump us in a place which made us wonder whether we were in Barcellona or some war torn place in Iran.

In the end after meandering through these narrow and dirty alleys together with the kids we finally found a helpful Pakistani waiter who with the help of the dustbin collectors finally managed to locate the hotel at 1am.

This hotel was, as the title suggests, perfect for my recent trip to Barcelona. It's location was amazing, just a minutes walk from Las Ramblas, and it was a perfect base from with which to explore this amazing city.

Although the room was small it was ideal for somewhere to keep my stuff and sleep. And to be honest that's all that I expect from a hotel along with being clean and feeling safe. The room had air conditioning and a fridge (first time I've encountered that in a budget hotel). There was also a safe in the room which didn't need to be paid for.

The only two things that were negative about it was the shower cubicle was a bit on the small side which either left me wrestling with the shower curtain or hitting the temperature controller with my back which suddenly turned the water very hot or very cold!! There was no view and the dwelling across the small street owned a bird of some kind that chirped a lot. As you can see I'm struggling for negatives.

There were some concerns about the safety of the location of the hotel at night but I didn't encounter anything at all. And one night I didn't get back until nearer 3am.

All in all if you are looking for a value for money hotel and there is availability at this hotel book it in complete confidence.

I had to spend just a single night in fantastic Barcelona and I found this cool and pretty cheap place with no problem, even in high season time. A very narrow street by a charming square looking at Barcelona's old port: there stands this charming little hotel. Surprising subterranean parking very close, the mighty Ramblas are reached in two minutes walking. Cool staff, nice and clean room (choose one in the back, as the little street might be noisy: those Catalans!). Great value for a very reasonable price. Undoubtfully my headquarters on my next stay to awesome Barcelona!

Room Tip: As I said, try to purchase a backyard room: no noise at all...unless the Barça is playing!

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. :)
