Horrible Sewer Smell in Plumbing

Horrible smell, was sick to stomach whenever I was in my room. Could only fit 1 piece of luggage it was so small. Charged me extra to use the safe in my own room! Every time I drank their water, my stomach ached with pain for hours. Researched on internet and learned that hotel must have bacteria in the plumbing to create the smell we had. Heard multiple guests complaining of the smell in their plumbing as well. Asked to change rooms to get away from smell, but new room had same issue.

STOP and READ this review...

This is tough to write. Overall the hotel is nice, decent location and friendly staff, but when there is an issue, the hotel does nothing to resolve it. On the last night of our 5 day trip we had water falling from the ceiling of our hotel room. The floor was flooded and our luggage got all wet. When I asked the hotel staff to resolve the problem, get me a new room, or do something, they had no solution. My wife and I had to stay in the room with many bucks while the ceiling dripped water. They did not refund the price of the room for that night nor take any other attempt in making us happy for what we had to go through. If we could do it again, we would stay somewhere else.

Hotel for Petit people

Pre-cruise one night. Good location near Plac Catalunya where the airport shuttle arrives. Many restaurants in walking distance. The rooms are tiny and so are the elevators. Elevators go to 2nd floor then need to walk a flight of stairs to another elevator. Hope you don't have lots of heavy luggage. Elevator only large enough for 1 person + luggage. Room had double bed with just enough space to walk around it. The bathroom was very clean but the shower door didn't close so water got all over the floor. You step out into a puddle or a soaking bath mat. The window opens to an air shaft. Good TV. Writing desk convenient but you can't get into the chair provided because of the cramped space. The desk staff very helpful. Free internet station in the lobby. Cafe & restaurant available but expensive. Located off a little side street so was difficult to find. For the cost, it was ok for the few hours we were there under jet lag. Big people would have problems in the small bed and tiny room.

Nice Little Hotel

The location was handy for the University area and La Rambla. Our room was nice with a separate sitting room/dressing area. We were faced out the back, which made it quiet even with the window open at night. The price was reasonable with the inclusion of a very nice breakfast buffet. The one thing a little disappointing was that the beds were extremely firm (read that as HARD). the staff was friendly and helpful.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There was a market area within 2-3 bloks of the hotel. We puchased cheese, bread, wine and chocolate and had a delightful picnic style late night snack in our hotel room. We could have spent hours exploring the farm stands in the market area.

Fine for one night

Staff was very friendly, spoke English. Room was ready when we arrived in the morning, however it was located in another section of the hotel. Had to take two elevators to get to our room. They only held either 2 people or 4. Had to make two trips to get ourselves and luggage into the room. We had to carry our luggage up on steps also. The A/C isn't on in the hallways, but room was cool enough.
