“Great value for money, great location”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Stayed for here for 10 days - and will definitely be back. The location is a little bit away from the beaten tourist track, but this is an advantage. It's a quiet area, but just around the corner is the Rambla del Poblenou, a beautiful boulevard with countless bars and restaurants frequented by locals. At the end of the Rambla you're at the beach - if you don't want to stroll it's about a 10 minute walk. The Metro station Llacuna is only about 5 minutes' walk from the hotel, and it's only 4 stops to the Barri Gotic, the centre of town. When I asked what wifi cost, they gave me a (free) "IHG Rewards Club" membership, and so it was free (and fast). Otherwise, it's a modern hotel, the rooms were clean, the breakfast was good and the staff friendly and helpful! Recommended!

I would stay here again. It is spotless and conveniently located to a wonderful walking street with many restaurants that have outdoors seatings and it is a just a few blocks from the sea. We could walk to the pickup location for the Hop a Bus tours and yet feel like we were living along side the locals. The staff was very helpful booking excursions and accomodating our sleeping requirements with extra pillows and water.

Room Tip: Top floor always so no one is clumping above you.

Dear Mr offwego4,

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful review regarding your stay with us.
We are glad to know you enjoyed our location since we are very proud to offer a nice hotel away from the busy area of Barcelona but close enough for tourist porpoises (4 metro stops to the city centre). La Rambla del Poblenou (next to the hotel) is a very known street by the citizens. It is famous by its day and night life (restaurants, pubs, supermarkets & shops ) and provide a nice walk of 10 minutes to the “Playa de la Mar Bella” (Mar Bella beach) and 15 minutes to the Congress Centre as you said.

Again thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience and to make us aware of your delightful experience during your recent stay.

We look forward to welcoming you again.

Kind Regards,

Myriam Sánchez

This hotel was very basic and no frills. The staff are extremely helpful and the hotel clean.

It's roughly 30mins walk from main centre
Cost per cab €6
Bus per person €2.70 one way
The internet cost at hotel €12 -24 per 12 hours, only available in reception
€36 cost from airport
Take your own tea & coffee for room and milk.
The breakfast continental and basic.
The air conditioning was broken .

All in all we paid £200 each for 3 days in Barcelona over the Easter Holidays, which I though was cheap. Barcelona itself is very expensive , but if you find a little cafe called Edelmann in Barcelona it's reasonable with free internet . Beautiful city enjoy

We booked this hotel based on price and being semi close to city Center. The hotel itself was fine. The only complaint was the temp of the room. The air con was not on, therefor we kept the window open. The location is on a semi busy street which made for a lot of noise late at night and early in the AM. There are a few decent restaurants nearby which was convenient. All in all, a good hotel!
