nice stay in Barcelona

Hotel is located 200 meters from Plaza de Catalunya and very close to Universitat underground station so you have everything within walking distance. The hotel is nice, quiet and offers free wireless connection. The room was small but clean and comfortable, the bathroom too. I would definitely recommended it, the price I paid was also good compared to other hotels of same category in this area.

good location

It was not my first time at this hotel in Barcelona and I would definitely recommend it. It's a good deal quality/price. Do not expect a very large room but staff is helpful in case you are given a small one and ask to change it for a bigger one. Rooms and bathroom are clean and well maintained. The hotel is located close to the city center and there is everything you may need (bars, restaurants, pubs, pharmacy etc) within walking distance. There is a nice and quiet pool on the roof.

Well Located Hotel

Sunotel was good for a short mini break, centrally located to explore the cities vast sites! Rooms were clean, but a little basic and pretty small. Shame the jacuzzi was not working, and clearly hasn't been for some time!! Good value for money.

very good location from which to travel

I am not used to European hotels so I thought the room was very small- I have only been to US and Canadian hotels. But others told me this is typical.

Good Location for Price

Good location. A little over a block to a Starbucks where one can use their Wifi. Metro across from the Starbucks. Only ten minutes to Las Ramblas and the Boqueria Market. Several good places to eat only a block away in either direction and at reasonable prices. Having internet would have helped. Other hotel we stayed at before our cruise had free Wifi in room at about same price. Our stay was very enjoyable.

Try the Daily meal specials at the local restaurants close to the hotel. You get a first and second entree, plus dessert and a drink for under 10 euro.

Comfortable, clean, great location.

The hotel was situated in a convenient location. Walking distance to nice part of town, many metro, bus, taxi options. The room was large and comfortable, we had a nice balcony with view of the main avenue. Highly recommended.

excellent city break

pool on roof with amazing views of unseen Barcelona and well known Barcelona was brilliant after a day of treking around the tourist spots . We used local buses great value and easy to use . Rooms a little on small side and beds hard , and only 1 pillow ,with no view but we didn't spend that much time in them . Three lovely outside cafes nearby with excellant service and friendly staff . Hotel staff always polite and helpful , would stay here again .
