“Great value.”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

We had a great time with my wife exploring Barcelona from this hotel. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. And the bartender at the roof-top sun terrace was exceptionally nice and friendly.

The hotel is clean and modern. It is located in El Raval, which isn't exactly the cleanest and safest neighborhood of Barcelona. However, the area around the hotel is OK, as long as you avoid taking the shortcut to La Rambla, which is very near anyway. Use the larger streets instead, they are quite pleasant.

The wash basin is not very big, so it's easy to splash water on the floor, but turning the faucet helps a little. Apart from that, we had no problems at all. I think the hotel is an excellent option for couples. Some people might dislike the limited showering privacy.

For the price, this is a great hotel with an excellent location and I highly recommend it for couples visiting Barcelona.

Very basic, no frills. Good value for the money. Great staff. The hotel itself is not aesthetic, beautiful or relaxing. The rooftop is beautiful, but the food is despicable. The towels and shower is very cheap, and there is no sound proof, so expect to be woken up by the cleaner every morning.

We were two good friends visiting Barcelona. The hotel is located very conveniently a few minutes walk from the beach and the Ramblas. We loved the style and design of the rooms, although they might suit a couple better. The staff was very friendly and helpful!

One of the more unique places I've stayed since traveling, friendly staff with an awesome atmosphere and the quirky nature of the whole hotel is unmatched. The rooftop terrace is a great place for a few drinks and to unwind after a day strolling La Rambla or tanning at the beach.

This hotel is very well situated for the main tourist attractions. The staff are helpful and friendly and the rooms comfortable. They have a secure car park which is unusual for a hotel so close to the sights. When we had a problem with the excellent air conditioning leaking they had it fixed within half an hour. Breakfast is wonderful. There's nothing not to like here.

It was a new apartment which which looks newly redecorated. It had air conditioning which you need. I did not like the fact that the shower room not all of the glass is frosted, so someone can see you having a shower. I had a shower at night and someone was whistling at me as they had seen me naked. I did not like that at all. The shower room does not have a door just a curtain which I did not like. I like to have some privacy when l shower. I did not like the fact that when you get to your apartment there are stairs you have to climb before you get to your room. It is not great when you have heavy luggage to carry. It is very quiet on a side street and a few minutes walk from Las Ramblas. The shops and restaurants are very close. The hotel looks fancy and is very secure. It gets cleaned every day with fresh towels. It is very clean.

Room Tip: Do not have a shower at night, as when the light is on when you dress people can see you see from th...
