This hotel is a good alternative to much more expensive hotels in the city centre. As a family of 4 we paid less than E700 for four nights (less than half what we would have paid in the centre), yet we were only a 10-12 minute walk away from two metro stations (Aviguda Diagonale and Hospital ...).
Family room consisted of a small hall and two separate rooms (and two bathrooms) next to each other.
Unlimited free small water bottles available all day.
Friendly staff which spoke good English.
Requests were handled within five minutes.
Quiet rooms even when facing the main street because of excellent double glasing (except Friday and Saturday nights - more on this below).
15 minute walk to the beginning of La Rambla.
30-40 minute walk to the town centre (cathedral) but we enjoyed the walks through the lovely city, so perhaps not a minus after all?
When the rooms are facing the main road - Carrer d'Aribau - you will in all likelihood be woken up between 4-6am on Friday and Saturday nights since the entrance of a night club is right opposite the hotel and about 60-100 smokers will be standing on the opposite side of the street and chat.
Breakfast was average to good but a bit monotonous after four days despite the niece daily pear tart. The orange juice was made from concentrate. The bread, croissants etc. we're nice and fresh, though.
Tips: get a quiet room facing the courtyard and make the most of the free water bottles.
