The only good point is location in main touristic place. Also internet was good. I did not book inadvance so went hotels to another to find available rooms. I paid 80 eur/ night for a single person. The quality of room was poor. Generally it does not make you feel you are in a hotel.

This economy type hotel is located a few minutes away from the metro station Liceu. Since the hotel does not have a lift it might be a bit daunting for very elderly clients to climb the stairs with luggage.The room I occupied with bunk beds was adequate, and I must mention the bed was very comfortable. It also had a... More

The previous reviews are correct. This place isn't great. Good location and really good staff but would not stay here again. Barcelona is really worth a visit and best food found in Gracia district. Metro so easy to navigate.

Stayed here for 1 night. Perfect location, just a few yards from everything. ..shops, bars etc. We had a bedroom with ensuite and three beds which was on the first floor which is actually up quite a few stairs. No lift so made carrying heavy cases a chore. Staff were pleasant. They keep your keys when you go out which... More

Travelled with two teenager sons and this place was perfect for us. Location was so good! Walking distance to almost everything, and the Metro (Liceu) a few minutes away. City center 20-25 min walk, same distance the other direction and you are at the seaside. Situated in the old, narrow and cosy Gothic quarters, just off La Rambla. Our windows... More

Please read the other reviews. Take their advice and go somewhere else. I wish I had read the reviews. A door to our room didn't even lock. For 2 days I was told that no one else had a problem with it. They made no attempt to fix the door during our stay. Barcelona was booked out. We couldn't even... More

The good thing about this place: the location. The lack of air flow and the shower situation were terrible though. We paid for A/C in our room and it made no difference. It was extremely hot all day and all night. Given that it's August, we got very sweaty throughout the day, but the shower really didn't give us any... More
