“So much better than we thought”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

We got a great room with bathroom and a little French balcony. It was very clean and fresh. We were expecting it to be noisy at night because of the location in the city but we were shocked by how little we could hear from the outside. Very freindly staff!! We will definitely go back here next time we visit Barcelona!

I chose this hotel because it seem to be close to barcelonetta beach. The price is definitely not worth it as there are other 3-4 star central hotels for the same price. you can always use the tube to go to the beach or anywhere, no reason to book this hotel. The beach is more than 20 minutes walk away anyway.

The main issue with this hotel is the treatment from the staff. I've never come across to worse service and attitude than this. The cleaner shout at us for no reason and the reception person told me to go away when i mentioned that the room didn't have a fan as indicated when i booked it. So i had to stay 4 nights in a room without a fan barely able to get sleep due to the heat. Not to mention that the bed mattress was as hard as a rock.
When booking the room it was mentioning and also showing that there is a ceiling fan. When arriving you are asked to pay in cash for the whole period of stay before you see the room, so you can't get refund.
Moreover the room was barely cleaned if at all while i was away. Overall its the worst place i've ever rented and fully regret it.

Gracias por su comentario. Lamentamos que no le haya gustado nuestra ubicación pero en ningún momento ponemos que estamos al lado de la playa sino cerca.
En nuestro establecimiento no disponemos de ningun ventilador de techo (y no existe ninguna foto donde aparezca), ofrecemos a todos nuestros clientes ventiladores, de pie o de sobremesa. Si en algun momento se quejan de que no funcionan en recepción se les cambia por uno nuevo y si fuese necesario se le proporcionan mas.
Nuestro personal es muy respetuoso con todo los clientes, pudo ser un malentendido.
Nosotros disponemos de datafonos para poder cobrar con tarjeta de credito, y no obligamos a pagar en efectivo, solamente tasa turistica de la ciudad.

This was a wonderful find location-wise, you cannot find a better hotel for the price in this location! It’s full of character on a side street surrounded by some of the best bars and cafes. The gothic quarter is my favourite part of Barcelona and its not dirty or rough at all but more for the artist/music/hippie types perhaps, with graffiti and fun loving late nighters strolling about. I loved walking all the amazing little streets and having a hotel right in the middle of it.

I found the hotel VERY clean and actually very quiet and although its an older hotel, it has a lot of character with marble floors, giant mirrors but simple comfortable furnishings and old paintings from the 70s on the walls which I liked. A few minutes from Las Ramblas but very quiet area and 2 streets from the harbour too! It was very hot so we had two floor fans that were provided going the whole time. Nice old elevator too but easy access with steps. I never heard any other people in the hotel so it seemed well insulated to me.

Also had the best wifi connection I’ve experienced at a hotel in years, very fast and strong signal in your room which was very handy and not that easy to find in Spain.

We had an ensuite double which was perfect. I also checked out the sharing bathrooms nearby and they were super clean and centrally located in the hallways.

Ten minutes walk from two metro stations so easy to get around town! Hop on bus nearby too.

The only problem is the angry cleaning lady. She was very upset when we arrived 30 minutes before check in time and scolded us loudly in Spanish to go away and come back later. She seemed to be forever mopping the halls and muttering to herself psychotically. At first it was funny, but she was downright scary!! The second morning, she was banging on the door demanding to clean but we were still in bed, as it’s a very late night city, so I told her to come back on Sunday! She was nicer the third day and I was just about to forgive her, as I also saw her working the front desk night shift at 2am –but check out morning, she was a raging maniac again banging on the door several times way before 11am, and we stumbled out of the room with our bags and half dressed just to keep her quiet! Then we heard her cursing probably as we didn’t leave a tip! I’d love to stay there again but she’d have to have retired for me to return to this fabulously located budget hotel. Stay there if you get up early and won’t run into her!! Maybe she owns the place?!

PS. Barcelona seemed very safe with tons of police patrolling on every street but we did see one attempted robbery of a phone so keep your things hidden!

Room Tip: We had an inner room with little balcony but was super quiet.

I was there with my friends in a 4 days vacation. We wanted a private room for us "8 persons". The Pension offered this room which was big enough to fit us. The location of the Pension is PERFECT.. BEST LOCATION EVER.... but everything else is negative.. It is not clean, staff are not friendly at all, it is not safe.... I am not recommending it to anyone...

We nearly chose a smarter hotel in gracia but are so glad we didn't. The location is unbeatable, we would only refrain from recommending it to sensitive sleepers- you're in the heart of the district so there is plenty of street noise day and night. Was difficult to locate initially- Avinyo road turns into Simon Oller (which wasn't labelled on maps).
