Yes, I would recommend this hotel, but you get what you pay for.

Stayed one night. Room was clean but dated. Bed was very hard as are most in the hotels i stay in and the air conditioning was very weak therefore room was a bit warm at night. I didn't use room service or any other facilities within the hotel. I would say it was about what I expected for the price. No major complaints but I'm trying to nit pick a bit for this review.

Great stay for 3 nights. Perfect Location!

Very comfortable and reasonably priced stay. Location was absolutely perfect - walking distance to many places and close to metro station. Room and bathroom were both great - awesome shower! Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was also very good and only 11 Euro for a great spread of quality food and many beverages. I highly recommend this hotel if you are spending a few nights in Barcelona.

Very good location to stay

Everything was good, but the room smelled really bad. Requested a change in room and everything was better.

Competitively Priced but Needs a Tune Up

The hotel had a good location, a pleasant/useful staff, and is priced reasonably. However, the hotel needs some repairs. For instance, the towel rack was partially torn out of the wall and the bathtub was very UNinviting. If this is a 3-star hotel then it is in the low 3s.

The breakfast is way overpriced. Instead, just step outside your door and go to one of the MANY cafes nearby.

Great location

After an 8 hour flight,I was unable to check in for 7 hours! I was told repeatedly to come back in a couple more hours. Because of the great location I was able to kill time exploring the city which was great. I was then given a smoking room and had to wait again for a non smoking room. The hotel was listed as a four star but it was more like a fancy motel. I still had a great trip.
