I stayed in this hotel for a week while attending the AIDS Impact conference in Barcelona. The room, although not very big, was clean, trendy and had everything I needed. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The location is excellent, 5 minute walk from La Ramblas, near the Metro and lovely bars, bakeries, etc

My wife and I were visiting Barcelona to celebrate our wedding anniversary and my birthday (same day) and I can only say that the staff at Acta 40 helped to make our visit exceedingly pleasant. OK I now know the meaning of 'Economy' but we have slept in smaller rooms in the past. The buffet continental breakfast was the best we have come across in travels all over Europe so well done here. Unfortunately the festival of La Merce coincided with our visit and there was quite a lot of music noise into the night from the nearby square - but no matter. We felt that we were celebrating with Barcelona to the extent of following the Giants in parade on the 24th (our special day too)

Room Tip: Avoid economy double rooms if you can.

It was clean, well kept and the staff is friendly. Nice breakfast buffet.

The hotel is situated down one of the many narrow side streets in Barcelona - look out for the 'H' on the wall as it's quite easy to walk past and miss it. We were welcomed by a friendly, smiling host who was very helpful and spoke good English. Our room and bathroom was very clean and comfortable (on the 6th floor at the back of the hotel) and it was fairly quiet. Vast array of choice for breakfast that was constantly replenished by the staff and you can eat as much as you want and set yourself up for the day. The hotel also has a locker room which you could leave your luggage in after check out until you had to travel. Would definitely stay there should we be visiting Barcelona again. Also, enjoyed Tapas at a bar called Frankfurt which was next door to the hotel. It had a good vibe and pleasant staff.

Have visited barcelona 3 times and this small hotel did the trick,location was good for all things you wanted to do whether you walked or travelled by metro,central to most things.The hotel is set in the raval district and runs parallel to la rambla a 5min walk away.The hotel is small and our room particularly so but you're not in there much so no problem there,breakfast is available if you wish to partake,all staff were very courteous and helpful.A nice selection of bars and eateries close by aswell,do not be put off by all the shutters and grafitti as this is part and parcel of barcelona.If you want basic accomodation to visit all the sights this hotel will do fine,booked our trip as a package with jet2 holidays.
