We've been visiting Barcelona yearly for some time and we thought we'd try a new region of town. We stayed here briefly and were comfortable with our room (small but clean, cosy), the excellent service and good breakfast. It's just over one kilometre to the train station but on a quiet street. Lots of funky cafes and shops within walking...

Am staying here for 3 nights while in Barcelona. So let's make it simpler, will tell u good and bad points. Good- Located close to metro, it's in a lively area. It's in a little interior so may be difficult to locate. But due to this it's not noisy around. Lots of shops nearby and is safe too. Initially we...

Dear client, First of all, thank you so much for your review and your points. Thank you for remark our good points too.

This hotel is conveniently located close to Sants station, metro, etc. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, bars, shops nearby so I cannot comment of the breakfast. It is clean and modern, bathrooms are good and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It styles itself as minimalist, and they are not kidding. The room has a bed, two plastic chairs...

Stayed here just one night after getting off the train from San Sebastian. Thought it would be an easy walk from the train station. It was a little far. It was clean and comfortable but not good access to sightseeing and restaurants. Breakfast was awful. Food was stale and in some cases almost rancid.

Dear client, Thank you for your reservation with us and for your review, however you are wrong in a couple of two things: Our breakfast is new every day, we buy and put new food EVERY DAY. There's nothing rancid or stale. Our breakfast includes: salad an sweet pastries, 3 types of cheese, marmalade, 2 types of sausage, ham, 3...

This small ,but extremely well located, hotel has been a pleasant discovery. The subway nearest stop is just 5 minutes away and, from there, you can catch the major lines to the touristic places in Barcelona.

Spent one night here in transit and found it excellent and economic. Very close to Sants station if you arrive by plane or TGV/AVE. Pleasant university feel to the district (though that's Barcelona anyway). Recommended.

Room was very clean, with modern furniture, but I think a fridge and a table should be necessary. The staff was friendly, but they really need to start learning English. The location was perfect, close to the subway and shops.
