we liked the convenience, the room size was large - bathroom with tub and bidet. we had a nice balcony. only thing lacking was a refrigerator. nice sitting areas and they stored our bags securely

This hotel is in a very good location and is close to all the action. The room is just the right size and so is the bathroom. The only thing is that no breakfast is included and it is expensive to eat breakfast at the hotel. There is, however, a small bakery across and many pattiseries nearby.

Staff were nice and friendly. They were very helpful. Breakfast and lunch is available in the hotel restaurant. Good service.

loved this hotel for location, comfort, price and staff.

Convenient, with wi-fi. English speaking at the desk.

This was a great hotel for short trip, nice size room and great wifi connection. I was a solo traveler and spent most of my time site seeing rather than in room. I did appreciate having an actual shower curtain instead of the half-door many hotel rooms in Spain have. Grabbed breakfast at nearby bakery rather than the on site breakfast. Had some issues with getting the a/c to not freeze the room.

Hotel is close to a wonderful breakfast place with excellent coffee and croissant

Hotel decoration was elegant, beautiful entry stairs to go up to the rooms. Comfortable lobby area. The rooms and bathroom were cleaned and large enough.

Great location. Quiet interior room. Friendly staff. I would book this one again. Rooms were ok. Bathroom was great!

Hotel was excellent, staff, location and all.... Highly recommend it, as its close to all tourist sites and most importantly its a short walk from the bus to and from the airport. Price is on par with other hotels in the area.

This hotel worked perfect for us. It was in the Gotic area where we wanted to enjoy the restaurants and be near Las Ramblas and we stayed for 5 days. Walked to Sagarda Familia church from here and that is a must see. Get tickets in advance and recommend a guided tour. Went to 2 classical guitar performances and what a great experience. One was at a small, old church and the other at Palau de la Musica. The Los Mos bakery cafe across the street was great for coffee and Danish and sandwiches.

Room was very mediocre. Very dark, small and pretty ugly. The bathroom however, was very nice. (It's like the room didn't even belong to that bathroom, weird.) The location was fantastic, walking distance to Plaza Catalunya and the Gaudi buildings. LOTS of restaurants, bars and things to see and do nearby. If you don't plan on spending much time inside the hotel room, this is great. However if you want a nice room, this isn't it.

First time in country and city. Did not spend much time in the room. Got most of what I wanted in a ood, basic accommodation in excellent location. Clean, efficient, good AC, comfortable bed and good shower. A little cramped, but that's Europe. No free wifi. Hotel staff very helpful.

Staff rude, absolutely everything costs extra... TV, which is in your room 10 euros, wifi 15 euros, no breakfast included... and a cockroach that scurried on the bathroom floor the size of my palm...

Staff completely rude... Thought it was a language thing but they really pulled a fast one... Kept saying the manager wouldn't be in until Monday when in turn we were talking to "the manager" the whole time... Breakfast advertised as included- it wasn't- oh, if you want to watch that TV in your room it's an additional 10 euros... WIFI? An additional 15 euros... Cockroach scurried under the suitcase so we unpacked outside when we got home... No additional fee for the cockroach... Stay somewhere else!

close to many main tourist sites,clean decent price for the location

found online and was pleased with our choice. Our luggage was delayed by the airlines and the hotel staff was very accommodating in storing our bags so we could begin to explore the city. The staff was proficient in the English language as well.

We had just gotten off a Med. cruise & stayed here 1 nite prior to airport departure the next day. It was about a 10-15 min. taxi ride from port. Perfect location to see the best of Barcelona--half block off of LaRambla , 1 block south of Plaza Catalunya. We arrived 9am, check-in was 2 pm. Guest clerk was very accomodating & helpful. Nice man with British (?) accent who let us stow bags in secure area & told us to return in couple of hrs. & he'd have room ready for us early & he did. Room was very large - 1 king bed plus sofa/couch for another single. Furnishings dated, but comfortable. Amazed to see very large bathroom, which had been modernized with stone counters, floor, etc. & good tub/shower. Don't know if other rooms were same size. Also, nice sitting area in lobby plus a room with internet access with computer with free web use or you could buy minutes for your own. The only negative for us was that their breakfast (11 euros p/p) didn't begin till 8 am. & the coffee machine in lobby didn't work. As we had to rise early for taxi to airport, not having early coffee was a minus. The cafes/eateries on same block also did not open till 8am. Guess Barcelonans sleep in. (Also, it was a Sunday.) We would recommend this hotel. You can't beat the location. You can walk up & down LaRambla plus the 'on & off' tour bus has 3 routes that take you all over the city. A pick-up point was within 2 blocks of hotel. Many shops, restaurants, etc. all along LaRambla. Much to see & do. The desk clerks very helpful & courteous. They called taxi for airport & ride was only 10-15 min. because no traffic on early Sun. a.m. ---desk told us ride to airport would be about 37 euro & definitely under 40E. Taxi driver insisted we pay 41.75 euro BECAUSE IT WAS A SUNDAY. We think that was a rip-off.

The biggest drawback to this hotel is the lack of access from the street via car without prior warning. We drove around Barcelona a very long time trying to find the hotel which was extremely frustrating. We knew that it did not provide parking, but parking close to the hotel was very expensive. It is walking distance friendly to many sights in Barcelona, especially Las Ramblas. The desk clerks were extremely helpful in answering questions and acquiring tickets. Apparently they did not document that we paid the hotel tax per person a day ahead as we had a very early departure, but we did not have to pay twice.

I chose this hotel by chance and couldn't have found a better location. Plenty of places to eat are both at the hotel and close(50m) and in the next couple of blocks. Room was small, but adequate for a nights stay. Noise insulation was not too good. The bed was very hard, not what we are used to. The staff was excellent and very helpful. The staff spoke English very well.
