Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel has a nice location as it is very near to various restaurants, and convenience stores; it is also near to La Rambla, a shopping street, and Plaza Catalunas, near commercial centers and banks.
Rooms are not very big but spacious. Beds are very comfortable and toilets are good. The only downside is that the toiletries are not complete in our room, and there are no slippers. You have to request for them, which we did, and they gave us only one pair. It was a hassle to request again.
Lobby is quite small especially if there are tourist groups since they occupy all the sofas available, but staffs are very hospitable.
The downside of this is probably breakfast. Except for the cakes and breads, which alternates daily, the menu is the same everyday. Food is good, and a bit on the salty side, but I wish they would change their menu alternately.
Transportation is very easy as it is near a bus station.
