“Perfect location, value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Booked through a British Airways package - very good value. Perfect location just off the top of Las Ramblas; we could walk amost everywhere and less than 5 minutes walk to the closest metro. Continental breakfast perfectly adequate and convenient rather than having to find breakfast elsewhere. First room in the front noisy and a bit cramped. Moved after the first night and had a lovely double in the back (#253) with terrace (small and no view but still nice!). Rooms do vary in size. Friendly helpful staff.

Room Tip: Rooms in the front noisy - definitely go for one in the back.

The photographs on there and the street/Google guides do not do justice to this lovely little hotel.

First off - if you are expecting a 5* Hotel for this price then you are not being reasonable. If you are looking for helpful and attentive staff, clean rooms, great services, wonderful atmosphere and incredible location then just go ahead and book it :)

Get the Aerobus from the airport and get of at Pl University or the end stop Pl Catalunyia. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from either square. If you arrive during the day the road will look quite. It wakes up as the evening unwinds.

Rooms (like all of Barcelona) are not huge, think a large cabin suite. Air conditioning works well as does the modern plumbing.
Little security safes are available at reception as are large 1.5lt bottles of chilled water rather than relying on the mini-bar.
The small 4 person lift wins no races - but works and is reliable.

Breakfast on the 1st floor is a delight - simple continental breakfast with limited cereals if you need them and soya/low fat milk! Here there is also a 6 or 8 table terrace where we enjoyed breakfast al fresco mid October!

Cathederal is about 15 minutes stroll down Ramla; Rambla itself is almost 1 minute stroll away. There are numerous eating houses around, pizza on the run or fine dining. Pointless recommending anywhere since they will have changed hands but realise you are in a student area so the food is good and reasonable rather than Jamie Oliver.

The Aerobus back to T1 is about 40 minutes - you have to cross the city so make sure to add 15 minutes for Spain and traffic.

The hotel happily pre-booked most areas and gave the internet discount so worth checking out. The citytour / tourist bus leaves from Pl Catalonia about 5 minutes strol max from the hotel.

Hope your stay is as magical as ours.

Room Tip: Front rooms may hear a little noise when clubs close - but only if you sleep with your windows side...

Wonderful stay in beautiful city in family hotel, well run, clean and extremely well located. Had room #354 with balcony, in back and absolutely no noise. Well located to La Rambla and all other sites and good restaurants. Front desk help was excellent. Breakfast more than adequate. Would definitely stay again - very reasonable. Thanks for helping make our trip as wonderful as it was.

Room Tip: There are 3-4 rooms with balcony at the back... try for one. Good place for a glass of wine and some...

I traveled in 2011 to Barcelona to attend a conference. The university was very close to the hotel. the conference gave us a discount in the hotel so the price was great. For any tourist and traveler to Barcelona, the location of the hotel is really great. It is very close to las ramblas which is the famous street in Barcelona where you can find restaurants, souvenirs shops, the sea, the beaches, undergrounds, streets' artists and shows especially Mime artists, Carrefour where you can buy anything with good prices and La Boqueria wher you canbuy fresh fruits and fish. Moreover, the hotel is close to the square called Plaça de Catalunya where you can find hop on hop off buses and the airport bus which takes you directly to the airport.But, the hotel lobby is very small. The room is very small but I like the furniture it looks like what is found in the pic that i saw on the internet. The television set is old. The Air conditioner makes a big noise and does not work. The weather was hot in July in Barcelona and the A.C did not cool. You can hear the streets' noise at night especially that Barcelona and this area do not sleep early in summer which is something i like. The breakfast was good but i find many items in the breakfast buffet bought from Carrefour. I like the restaurant where you can take breakfast in a small balcony or indoor. I like the furniture which looks like being antiques. There is a wifi and a pc in the lobby to use the internet. I could not call Egypt from the hotel and the receptionist could not help me to make the call. I bought a ticket to watch flamenco show in a place also close to the hotel which is one of the best in las ramlas and called Tablao Flamenco Cordobés. Also, if you walk a bit you gonna find malls, and many other sites.

I booked this Hotel as a surprise 50th birthday treat for my husband, I paid for a taxi transfer from the airport as I had no idea how to get to the Hotel. Once there, we were welcomed by a lovely lady on reception. after booking in, she gave us clear directions to the local Metro and answered all my queries. all the staff were very friendly, what made it even more personal was the fact that when we came into reception the receptionist greeted us by name each time. The hotel couldn't be more central to everything, it was literally around the block from La Ramblas.and close to the local Metro.

Room Tip: Try to get a room towards the back as a lot of young people gather in the nearby tapas bars in the e...

As per previous reviews I can only repeat that this hotel is centrally located,very traditional,clean and the staff very helpful. We had a very pleasant weeks stay here.The only draw back is if you are given a room at the front it can be very noisy in the evenings. We asked to move and were given a very nice room at the rear with no hassle.

Room Tip: Not a front room

Rooms were spacious clean and comfy , staff that we had dealings with were very helpful nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of what to eat. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay .
