The staff at Hostal Baler is really quite friendly, courteous, helpful, and accommodating! The rooms, though small, do give sufficient room for moving about. The use of a private bathroom was a deal-clincher! Upon entering the room, the air was welcomingly fresh--the usable window had been left 'cracked open.' The room and bathroom were basically clean, though a couple long, black hairs were found in the bathroom, and one in the sheets (which were clean). There were three very tiny ants in the bathroom. The shower was small, yet sufficient! Fresh towels, as well as shampoo and body gel samples were supplied. I was able to leave my large, heavy suitcase with the reception staff. My room was away from the street; the window opened onto a small courtyard below. I slept well, tho I was there only a few hours.
The breakfast was dry cereals, pre-packaged breakfast rolls, and drinks from a coffee machine (good). Although I needed to leave at 3:30 am, I was welcomed to partake of breakfast (being gluten sensitive, tho, there was nothing for me to enjoy).
There is a Hipermarche, as well as neighborhood markets and restaurants near-by. Also rather close are metro stops for 2 or 3 different lines.
The owners were quite helpful re working with the internet--yet nothing resulted in it being available in my room. I spent a couple hours in the reception area with the internet, as well as being friendly with their doberman and chatting with family members (owners). It was like being at my aunt's, they were so friendly and open!
I will definitely stay there again when I return to Barcelona!
