“Excellent... for an economy hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2013

Excellent economy hotel, I'd happily stay there again.
Room: Very clean, good shower, chair, hanging space, TV.
Extras: Helpful staff, free WiFi, terrace to sit out on.
Food: Limited food available at extra cost in hotel, decent restaurant called 'Arturo' close by as recommened by the staff.
Travel: 5 mins walk to 'Magoria-La Campana' metro station, 1 change to the airport at 'Bellvitge/Gornal'. Taxis from the airport are around 40euro.

had a pleasant stay here with my husband. although the building was old and quite narrow, rooms were clean and modern. AC worked well on a hot summer's night. receptionists were helpful. we were allowed to leave our luggage after check out. it's located on a small side street with a few shops nearby where you can buy snacks and water. close to barcelona sants station. reasonable walk to Montjuic area where u can find the magic fountain ang palau nacional.

Be prepared to chase the hotel staff down for clean towels and good luck getting them to clean your room. I came back after a long day of enjoying the views of La Festa to find that my very expensive toiletries were not only thrown about but left sideways to empty into the shower. If you want to clean your own room and chase down an incompetent housekeeping staff, this is the place! Keep. Looking.

Good morning,
First of all, thanks for placing your trust in us and stay in our Bed & Breakfast during your holidays in Barcelona. We really appreciate your review, thanks for giving it us.
We are very sorry you had problems with housekeeping and we apologize for it. It is the first time a guest complains about the housekeeping. The cleaning staff works from 9.00 am to 16.00 pm, they clean always all the rooms, unless that ones that had the “not disturb” poster. We change the towels as many times as the guest request for it. So it’s very strange if that day the staff didn’t do it, There was some misunderstanding for sure and we apologize for it. The score of our cleaning service in Booking it’s 9.1, so we think that our housekeeping it’s doing very well their work and it’s very competent. We apologize for the mistake they did during your stay and we will talk with the staff in order to prevent this situation it’s going to repeat again.
We appreciate your sincerity and we guarantee that we will consider your views to improve day by day the quality of our service.
Your sincerely,
Live & Dream Director

We stayed 5 nights in July 2013. The location was excellent for us. 10 minute walk to the train station. Great access from the Airport. 2 metro lines - blue and red were also a 5 minute walk. The location was a quiet residential area. We had a room on the main floor with a private patio and I would suggest you request it although there is also a roof top patio for the upper floor guests to use. The rooms are small but very efficient. Breakfast was included with our rate and was good. The staff was very helpful when the 18 year old 'hooligan's' in the room next to us flooded our room with their showers. There are bars, restaurants and shopping nearby. We tried the 'quirky' bar on the corner, hospitality was amazing.

Room Tip: Ask for the main floor rooms with a patio.

a good place with lots of natural daylight and bright colours to give the impression of plenty of space, although the rooms themselves were perfectly adequate. The hotel is near the metro and a supermarket and with some very helpful and friendly staff it can't be faulted.

A very good hotel for a low price, especially for Barcelona. Everything looks new and very clean, and the hotel is very quiet. The rooms are a bit small, but not cramped. In a three-star hotel you would pay more for a much less nicer place! The staff is okay; the friendliness depends on who is serving you I suppose.
The nieghbourhood is residential, so you get a good view of Barcelona local life; it's not very close to the city center, but close to the metro and to Montjuic.
