“Charming little hotel”
Reviewed 7 December 2012

This is a delightful and charming little hotel which has been cleverly furnished and is expertly run. Our room and bathroom were spotless like the rest of the hotel and the breakfast which is served in the breakfast room was excellent. The staff also gave us some excellent advice on places to see and visit and recommended an excellent Catalan restaurant which was just a block away.

We had the misfortune of being robbed of all our hand luggage on arrival in Barcelona. All the staff members at Live and Dream went out of their way to assist us in every way possible. Without their help it would have been impossible for us to overcome our resulting difficulties.

This hotel is highly recommended. We would not consider staying anywhere else in Barcelona!

The hotel is very clean and stylish. The friendly and helpful staff. Also easy access to the city center (10-15 minutes by subway), to the airport 15-20 minutes by train. The breakfast is worth 6.5 euros. Breakfast is nice, especially tartilya. Ground floor rooms have a terrace. Large terrace, you can sit on it in the evening.

Clean, spacious enough single room with flat-screen TV. Didn't have the breakfast as tended to be out before the 8am start but looked very good value for 6 euros. The downsides were that it was very noisy (mostly from people coming in and out and in their poorly soundproofed rooms) and the Wifi was either not working or unusably slow. When this was brought up with staff (who were invariably sat at the desk with headphones in) shrugged it off and didn't seem to care.

The area around the hotel was ok, only 5 mins walk to Sants station. Very safe at night. Watch out for pick-pockets in barcelona - I saw two attempted bag-snatches.

Overall very good value, but not fantastic.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back may have been quieter- I was in room 7

This is a quite hotel although near metro (line 1) and bus connections (10 min. walk from Paza de Espana). The receptionists are really friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean and very confortable. It is redone (painting, decoration, and overall restauration) every year, which gives it the impression it is a newly opened hotel.

Very nice place to stay, rooms are clean, the location is good and the lady at reception helped a lot with good advices. The breakfast is fine. Important: book hotels and B&B in advance for Barcelona.

Fantastic hotel in a great location, rooms were really clean and spacious and everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Would deliberately recommend. Fantastic service from the lady who checked us in and showed us a map and the best places to go and how to get there

The hotel will be suitable for accommodation for 2-3 nights, it is no more. Numbers very small, but with fresh repair. Everything is convenient and functional. A breakfast good for hotel of such level. I recommend numbers with terraces - though brightens up the size of a room a little.
