My husband and I stayed here for three nights in september, 2012.
The hotel is small, simple but clean.
We had a double room that combined with two single beds, not what we expected but it was ok for us.
The staff were helpful for gave us trip advises(city map, restaurants, supermarket...). The area was safe and not far from the attractions, we went to casa batllo and casa Milan by 15-20 mins happy walk, the street view walk by was beautiful and enjoyable.you can also take the metro to everywhere, it's very close to the hotel(3~5mins).
Overall, it was a good stay that match our expectation with the price(45 euro for one night), we may come back in the future.

Clean and big room and bathroom. Located in the middle of Barca, 15 mins from pl. Catalunya and La Rambla by bus. Metro and bus station next to hotel 5 min walk. Good breakfast. Vending machines available at reception, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and snacks. 2 supermarkets very close. Helpful staff. Good value. Sone construction in the street was finished in our last day but some construction in hotel remained bringing some noise after 11 am.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for sharing with us your feedback on your recent experience.

And we are very proud that you enjoy our breakfast buffet!!

About the noise construction, we apologize for the inconveniences caused by the renewal we are doing on 3rd floor. We finish it in 2 weeks. We start to work at 11:00h. because we try to minimize the noise to our customers, but unfortunately we have checked that in your case it was not enough. We are very sorry!!

But it is very nice to check that in spite of everything, your stay in our hotel has been comfortable and that we help you to enjoy your stay in Barcelona.

See you soon!!

I stayed here a while back while on a tour of Europe and this was one of the best places we stayed. The rooms were a bit small, but nicely updated and close to the metro. The overall ambience is very pleasing. Front desk staff were very helpful, especially when my cousin's luggage got lost and had to be delivered to the hotel.

The hotel was excellent, the breakfast really set one up for the morning.Our room was spacious and clean and although overlooking the main road once we shut the window very quiet.

One must be careful of pickpockets I am sure everyone knows this but they can take you unawares especially on the busy metro.Don't let the lowlifes steal your hard earned cash.

We arrived at 4pm, two hours after check-in started and had to wait for our room to be prepared. The room was very small, though did have a little, seatless balcony. The room was clean and and fine for £40/night but with a few problems i.e. blocked sink, temperamental shower and broken hair drier we weren't blown away.
Despite these few setbacks, the room was satisfactory and the staff were very helpful and friendly.

Stayed at this hotel last night, asked my business contacts to book me somewhere near their office that was "cheap and clean". Well this hotel surpassed anything I could have possibly imagined. I have stayed at 5 star hotels in Barcelona and from the welcome at the front desk to their helpfulness there was no difference. The room was spacious with wooden floors (I hate carpet) beautiful big windows that open, great bed, lovely bathroom with all amenities (shower gel, shampoo etc) great big shower! Breakfast was also lovely, good coffee (rare) eggs, sausages and fresh bread rolls with all types of jams, honey etc, fresh fruit and squeezed orange juice. I hesitate to recommend this hotel as its going to get really busy!! Paid just €45 for the night!! Should definitely be a 3 star hotel does not merit 2 stars!!

Room Tip: Maybe ask for one overlooking the square.

Dear Mss.

I want to be grateful for her the time that has dedicated to valuing our hotel.

We are very proud that you had enjoyed having breakfast in our breakfast room. We try to have a mixed and complete breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs, bacon,...

And please, if you are so kind, explain this secret to everybody!!!
