Reviewed 29 July 2013

The rooms were great! The best part of it was that it had a kitchen included - be sure to take advantage of this! Although, the walls are quite thin. Luckily, our neighbors were quiet and we couldn't really hear them. We heard stories that someone had to move rooms due to the noise. If the noise is too loud, I think the staff will help you move rooms. Also, the rooms are not that clean. It is acceptable but there is still dust around the corners. Not a big problem though! There is a huge supermarket downstairs right next to the hotel and a few smaller ones around. The staff were lovely and gave us a few maps and suggested a few places for us to visit. The location is a few minutes away from the metro station, two or three blocks. Espanya (only one station away) is only a 10 minute walk (or less!) there is a huge shopping mall with a food court if you would like to go there. But I suggest to eat at the street cafés instead (outside!!) Overall, a great experience!

Room Tip: If you chose to get a balcony room, request one facing the street. We had one facing the back and it...

The staff is really nice and helpful, the rooms are clean, and the breakfast buffet is awesome. We will definitely come back. The metro station is close by. The only problem was that the wifi didn't work on the third floor.

Central location, clean rooms, decent bathroom, bed ok, only complaint wifi on higher floors is useless. Nothing more worth saying about a place like this. It doesn't need 200 characters to sum up some places. Tripadvisor please note.

I have never received such consistent great service from a hotel staff! I dealt with so many different front desk staff members and every single one of them was very helpful and very friendly. I love how they seem to jump at a chance to serve.

Unfortunately the room quality is very bad! The walls are so thin, you can hear the people talking next door, you can hear the cars n scooters driving by and people walking upstairs in their rooms. When we stayed there was also construction at the next building so needless to say we did not get any sleep. The beds are bad. No cushion n when my husband turned during sleep the bed squeaked which woke me up! The bathroom smelled like it needed some Lysol to disinfect or bleach! The shower/tub is not designed for tall people. I'm short n medium size and i felt like the shower was a very tight squeeze. Do not open the window that looks into the center of the hotel. It's a scary sight! They should plant something there and wash down those walls!

Room Tip: We booked three rooms. None of them good. They need to change the beds and make the walls and ceilin...

This is the second time we stayed in this hotel: first time was 5 years ago when I came for a conference at the University of Barcelona which is 5 min walk. This time I came for the conference at Catalan Polytechnic University which is 15 min away (5 min walk +10 min subway) on the outskirts of the city. Both times the hotel offered the best location at a reasonable price.

Rooms are standard, good size, with full bath. equipped with flat screen TV. Free Wifi is available. Rooms are clean and quiet. Added bonus is a kitchenette so if you'd like to save on breakfasts, you can. Staff is attentive and accommodating. English spoken.

Location is near perfect: Plaza Espana and Monjuic are 5 min away. The hotel is in Eixample which means Gaudi highlights are within walking distance as are Parallel with its restaurants, El Raval, Rambla, Barri Gothic and even Born. If you are a tourist in Barcelona there is no reason to use subway when you stay in this hotel. Yet if you need subway, Rcokafort station is 3 min away, but also Tarragona station is 5 min away.

There is a supermarket in the building, very good pastry shop next door and variety of restaurants for every budget are within 15 min walk.

We had a very nice stay in this hotel. Rooms are spacious, big for European standard, have a living room area and kitchenette. Next to it is a supermarket (Mercadona) where you can get everything you need. You can also find nice bakeries, cafes, restaurants in the area. Breakfast is really good and generous (yummy cakes and croissants too!), staffs are friendly and helpful. It's probably a little outdated (thin wall), but clean and location is just perfect to stay in Barcelona (still close to the Centre but not crazy busy). It's close to all kind of public transportation, and we feel safe in the area. We walked all the time to P. Espanya and the bus stop for airport is also close by, a few blocks away. For the price you can't beat this hotel. It feels like home and it should be, because it's an apart-hotel. Overall, it was a pleasant four day stay before our Mediterranean cruise.
