I have stayed here in May 2012, just like everyone else has already mentioned, the location is just perfect. Really close to the tube station, although we used it like only once, because everything is within walking distance. Especially good location, because it was close to Placa Catalunya, so we could easily get to and from the airport to the hotel by a bus that dropped us off there :) Despite the good location the quality of the hotel is really low and I do not think it was worth the price. All of the furniture very old, disgusting blankets but besides that the room was generally clean. Of course we did not spend much time in the rooms as we were all day out sightseeing, so it was ok for a couple of nights basically just sleeping there. But I definiely would not recommend anyone who is bothered by the noise. They are cleaning the streets and emptying the bins in the middle of the night and trust me its not pleasant to wake up on the extremely loud noise of glass bottles breaking at like 3 AM...I do not recommend paying for the breakfast either, just rather go out somewhere like to the market or anything and eat there. Nevertheless, the wifi was barely working, so dont count on that.... This hotel certainly has possitives (practically just the location) but big negatives as well, and overall I would not stay here again!!

Location is literally a few small shops off Las Ramblas. We stayed in room 107 which meant we had a quiet room compared to the other side of the hotel facing all the pedestrian traffic. It is 100 yards from Liceu metro stop, really convenient. Had Wifi connection in hotel and a little breakfast area on bottom floor, tea or coffee can be purchased for a couple Euro and for a couple more so can a roll or croissant. Super tiny TV with four channels to surf in the room. Beds were very old and ultra firm to the point of discomfort. Front desk was not as helpful as I had read from other posts. Make sure to check your locking window blinds, our first room they didn't lock. I assumed they were there for reason since nobody else in the city left there blinds unlocked and open.

This was a short break of only two nights, for my daughters 21st birthday, so I wanted it to go well. The hotel is just off La Rambla , close to shops, bars and the metro.
It is very clean and comfortable, the staff are very helpful, with a wifi connection.
Tea and coffee making facilities would have been good, but not really a problem as there are loads of bars and restaurants on the door step.
There is plenty to do, and although we were warned by the taxi driver about pickpockets, we felt no more threatened than if we had been in London.
We would also take the train or bus into Barcelona next time as the cost of the taxi was 40 euros each way to the airport.
The metro was very cheap once we had worked out which way we wanted to go! Had a few wrong stops, but thats all part of the adventure.
Eat away from the main streets, we found a lovely square lined with restaurants, that were really good value for money.
We would definitely go again, and stay at the same hotel.

Hotel has a great location, right off La Rambla. It was very noisy at night though, but I slept well with earplugs. Room has air-conditioning and a little French balcony. Room was simple, with a little, very old TV. Room also had Wi-Fi.
All staff was very helpful and very friendly. Would recommend and book again.

This hotel is a 30 second walk to La Rambla and the Liceu Metro Station. It couldn't be in a better location! The rooms are simple but the beds are comfy and rooms cleaned everyday. Towels are also included. The Wi-fi in the rooms is excellent although sometimes a bit touch and go in the evenings but I only went online to check emails quickly! Staff also really friendly and happy to look after your key every time you go out! Really recommend this hotel!
