“Fantastic location. Amazing food market right behind the hotel”
Reviewed 22 July 2013 via mobile

10 min walk from the big square where the airport Eurobus shuttle drops you. Right on the ramblas and behind it there is a famous market which is great for your breakfast. Rooms clean and service good. Our room was ready even though we got there at 9:30 am. We didn't find the noise much of an issue.

Ok so we came off a cruise and decided to stay in the heart of the Ramblas. The hotel was very clean, well appointed, and staff were very helpful. The rooms are euro small but decorated very nicely. Everything you need is in this small room. The tv was a bit small for the wall but good otherwise. Our only complaint was the bed. Extremely hard and cheap. You could feel the springs underneath the almost cardboard mattress. We try to not be picky as nothing can be as good as home but this was very uncomfortable. Would we stay here again? Only if the beds were better. Otherwise a great place to attempt some rest .

Arrived late, it was not a problem. Friendly personnel. In general rooms were fine. Breakfast at 10 € is a bit pricey when considering the rather poor selection of foods. Two kinds of toast plus small flutes, combined with cheese and ham. Some jam and corn flakes, milk, juice, coffee, tea. Internet is free, but wifi connection is rather unstable. Shower head needed descaling in one of the rooms. Bathroom was fine, nothing special.

We stayed here for our 1st wedding anniversary for 3 nights. The location was perfect we walked everywhere from here but the metro was just outside if we had needed it. We had a room with a terrace (room 109) overlooking the market and had no problem with the noise at all! We went down for fruit and fresh juice from the market every morning so didnt get round to trying the hotels breakfast but from what we could see when pasing it looked great. The room was well used but very clean with everything we needed and cleaned daily. The staff were so helpful especially the reception ladies. We loved Barcelona and plan to return again and we will defiantly be coming back to this hotel. Thank you for a great stay.

What an incredible location! We had an amazing view from our room on the third floor of the main building. The first evening we sat on the patio savoring some wonderful wine while looking out on the market & enjoying the breeze. Staff was very attentive, food and drinks were excellent. This isn't the newest hotel, but it is well maintained & very clean. We spent a little extra to upgrade our room with the private balcony and it was so worth it. The location of this hotel is great -- across from the Liceu Metro, central to many tourist destinations and restaurants, and right next to La Boqueria Market.

Room Tip: Spend the extra to get the private balcony overlooking the market.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel, in a room on the 2nd floor, with both windows overlooking La Ramblas. For us it was on a perfect location. There was some noise of the street, but that didn't bother us that much. We even had the windows opened during most of the day and night. If you really want a silent room.... will be difficult on this location. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was really helpful and responsive. It has a nice terrace on the back, where you can enjoy your own bought breakfast or drinks.

The bathroom was spotless, but shower head was not spraying the water well and the drain of shower was very slow. And housekeeping should have replaced two of the lights in the bathroom that were not working all days of our stay.

The room has a small free-standing closet, mini bar and a safe in the closet for valuables.
Because it is reasonable priced, clean, friendly staff and great location, I would fully recommend this hotel.

We had five nights here and can echo what other, more detailed,reviews have pointed out. Unless you get a room at the back, the noise from La Ramblas at night would be a major default if that sort of stuff bothers you. We had a nice corner room at the back, so that was not a problem, but it wasn't cheap: 205€ after tax, with no breakfast included. The full breakfast, which looked très ordinaire, was 10€ a head. 4€ for coffee, a croissant (but not toast!), and a glass of juice. We recommend going across the street to the gelateria 1/2 a block down; it opens early and seems to be only frequented by locals. A better croissant and café con leche for 2.50€.

We also had some particular problems with the plumbing. There was no hot water in the hotel for a whole day, and, for the entire stay, the water pressure in the cold water pipe was so low, and the hot water so hot, that the shower had to be reduced to a dribble to avoid being scalded. Talk about running around to get wet. They did give us a 10% reduction on the room because of these troubles, to their credit.

On the positive side, the day staff lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful, the place was very clean, if bare (no water glasses, no toiletries shelf, one chair only in the room, WiFi you had to restart every time you re-entered).

I would say it is very much a three star establishment (as advertised), but that the location is TOO central ( noise, etc.). I would give it a higher rating if it were 25-35€ cheaper with breakfast included.

Room Tip: Definitely a room at the back, overlooking the market. Noisy early, but quiet late. View up to Mont...
