Is a beautiful hotel, in the gothic zone of the town. The room is not so big but is clean, the bathroom clean too. Every day they changed the towels and make our beds. In 7 minutes of walk we reached in las ramblas and in 15 minutes we reached in the port zone. For sure if i will come in Barcelona i will stay in the same hotel. The breakfast is very consistent and good food. Near hotel there are a lot of pubs, souvenir shops.

Situated minutes from Las Ramblas this cleanneat hotel is ideally set in Barcelona.Room and facilities were good except for a minor "drain" smell occasionally on the upper floor but not overly troublesome. Beds were excellent.. The surrounding area was a host of small shops restaurants etc and the city centre was minutes away. Staff were very helpful

This is in a quiet street but rooms are small and you can hear the TV playing from other rooms plus banging doors as other guests come and go and worst of all noise of water from bathroom whenever someone flushes the toilet in a room above. Wi-Fi connection very annoying you get kicked off every few minutes and have to reenter password, location is good right next to LA Rambla, pity about the short comings

I only needed accommodations for one person, but they put me in a two bed room and charged me the same price for two people. On top of that, Trip Advisor used a third party to book me, without me knowing it, and the hotel never received my reservation, but told me the first charge would be returned to my card. It's been 4 weeks and I still have not been refunded for the two nights I booked through Trip Advisor. As for the hotel, it is in a great location, however the rooms are old out dated and my room smelt horrible. Would not recommend. I would recommend not to book this hotel through Trip Advisor, if you plan on doing so, I have contacted Trip Advisor for a refund and they told me I have to contact the third party they used to book me with. I would advise, if you plan to stay here: DO NOT USE TRIP ADVISOR.

The hotel is suited on the middle of Barcelona near to lots of attraction and metro station . I really liked it a lot but the rooms doesn’t have refrigerators which is weird but we really enjoyed our stay

just found out this Hotel takes dogs mostly small occasionally med. fact not advertised only found out because dog whining and barking in bedrooms . staff friendly and lots life in area short walk to Cathedral or Las Rambla

A bit smelly and old, but really good location, and you somehow get what you pay for. Small rooms, with TV and telephone. You can open windows. Sufficient hot water all day. breakfast ok (coffee very nice). Budget friendly option

My friend and i stayed here 4 nights. its the most amazing location! I was hesitant at first because I read some reviews about things being stolen, however that did not happen to us. we did use the safe daily, but did forget to close it one day, not a thing was taken. The bathrooms are clean, the hotel staff friendly. I recommend bringing your own pillow sheet, but thats just me! also the hair dryer provided is not strong at all, so be prepared if thats an issue for you. we did not eat breakfast there, its 9 dollars daily, but there are so many other places you can eat at for less or more , whatever your choosing. The room had a weird sulfur smell at times, esp after using the shower, but no noise issues, we were on the second floor. you are in the best location though, about 10 minutes from los ramblos, and great shopping/ restaurants. The staff can hold your luggage the day you depart and also order you cabs places. would stay here again in a heart beat!

Just returned from a wonderful short stay in Barcelona. This hotel is very clean and good for the price and it being 3star. However, we found reception terrible, we waited over 15 minutes to be seen to as a lady could not make up her mind on what room she wanted, at one time three members of staff were dealing with her. We were given our room and told "it's that way" that was it. The room was dark and too warm, we had to have the heating looked at, don't know if that was done as nothing changed, so we opened the window, which helped. We had a view of four walls from the window. The bathroom was good, tv no good as all in Spanish, no tea or coffee making facilities in the room and the coffee machine coffee was too sweet for me, no matter which drink we tried, so gave up on it. Trying to sleep was traumatic due to the noise from others, every night until 1am and then from about 6am. Afraid the continental breakfast was not for us, we mainly had the breads but only managed to find the butter on our final morning no where near the bread. Always searching for glasses for drinks too. When we checked out, I had to ask if that was it as no mention of we hope you enjoyed your stay. I was then asked, yes, why do you need something! Anyway, I know this doesn't sound like a great review and probably a bit picky but I wanted to write this as I found it. The really good points are the location and how clean it is, as we didn't intend staying in our room other than to sleep, none of this really mattered much, however, we wouldn't want to stay here again.

Booked this hotel for its location just off Las Ramblas. It was excellently located within two minutes walk of Placa Jeune and 5 minutes walk to Las Ramblas and the metro station. I was travelling on my own and was worried that the Barri Gotic area might be a bit seedy and dangerous but there was always plenty of people around so I didn't feel at all unsafe. There are plenty of nice eating places and cafes nearby and I loved wandering around all the small side streets leading from the hotel. The hotel itself was nice and lived up to its 3 stars. The staff were all very helpful and friendly and the rooms were lovely and clean. Breakfast was ample, with plenty to choose from and self service coffee machines so you could help yourself to as many cups as you like. The one down side of my stay was the heat of the rooms. I visited in November and had to ask Reception to show me how to turn off the heat as it was suffocating. I slept with my window open for some air. Not sure how bad this would be in the summer but apparently all the old hotels are warm due to the way they are situated and built. I paid for a single room but was allocated a double which was a nice surprise and although the room was a bit tired, the bathroom had been newly refurbished and was very nice. I was disappointed to find that I could only watch Spanish channels on the TV in my room and even the American programmes were dubbed. It would have been nice to have an English News channel to watch occasionally. Also, there was no mini bar in the room but there were several automated drink and snack machines throughout the hotel on different floors which was good if you wanted a drink or a coffee in your room at night.There was a safe in the room but it cost 2 euros per night for the key. I stayed here for 8 nights and can recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to be in a central location with plenty going on around you. Will definitely book again when I re visit Barcelona.
