For a budget hotel, this ticked all the boxes providing excellent value for money. Situated just of the bottom end of the Rambla it is perfectly located in the Gothic part of the city, full of character and atmosphere, close to restaurants and the water front (which is stunning). Although we loved it, it is set in the less glamorous area. Our room (209) was spotlessly clean, good bathroom with fab shower, comfortable beds, fridge and free safe. Continental breakfast cost 5 eu which was adequate if a bit limited. Staff were helpful and offered us the use of a shower room on our last day after checking out at 12.00 midday. There was a bit of noise in the night but nothing to worry about and not in the league that some reviewers have mentioned. If you staying here, don’t bother with airport tranfers (we were quoted 140 Euros return). For 20 Euros we caught the airport bus which stops at the Placa Catalunya at the top of the Rambla and walked to the hotel - 20 minute stroll and thoroughly entertaining with all the street artists and stalls to take in. Top tip - if you have time buy a 2 day open top bus ticket which will take you all over Barcelona with guided tours. Cost 23 eu for 2 days but worth it. Overall we would recommend El Canton for a no frills Hotel and will stay again next time we go
