“Very handy, friendly and clean”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Pleasant hotel with friendly staff. Room was dated but very clean (apart from sofa which looked a bit grubby.) Nice spotless kitchenette with fridge and kettle, cups and cutlery. You need the key (20 euros deposit) to use the safe. I had to ask how to access the 2 English channels on TV but helpful staff member came up promptly to set up. Has iron, ironing board and hairdryer. My room was very quiet but I think I was fortunate to have a quiet, considerate neighbour as you can hear toilet flushing and loud voices. I didn't hear anything from the bar next door like other reviewers so obviously requesting a good location is a must. Nice lounge area to read complimentary English newspapers and have a drink. Free Wi-Fi in the room which worked faultlessly.

It cost me 25 euros to get to airport. The metro is a 5 minute walk away next to a large department store with a good supermarket in the basement and paper shop selling English newspapers and magazines.

Good value and I enjoyed my stay.

Positives - Friendly staff, easy to find, ideal location for the Metro, shopping and the Camp Nou. Large rooms, separate kitchen area with an empty fridge (apart from the 2 free bottles of water, thank you, very much appreciated) Very clean but décor and fittings are somewhat dated.
Fantastic café across the way open most hours of the day.

Negatives - Had booked three rooms, we arrived 'early' (12:00) and were permitted to access one room to leave our bags in whilst we went for lunch, the third room was not ready until almost 3. The rooms booked were also suppose to be non smoking but on arrival 2 of the rooms were smoking (the ashtray was a bit of a giveaway as was the lingering smell of cigars and the usual burns on the carpet and furniture). That said running the air conditioning for half an hour did get rid of most of the smell.

There was one massive negative though, especially for families or light sleepers - the bar next door. Granted, in a city you expect noise from cars and bars but the bar drew motorcycle riders who revved their machines well past midnight.

Quite location in the middle of the city, around 5 minutes walk from Les Corts metro station.

Superior Rooms are large and comes with living room and kitchen complete with utensils and cooking tools. So for travelers who wish to eat outside (paella here I come) it was more of a back up plan. Yet, as we were in the area in the eve of New Year, we actually resorted to this backup plan as many shops are closed. One thing I didn't like was that room we had has traces of cigar smoke.

Front desk are helpful although not all of them are comfortable talking in English.

The hotel is close to attractions around Avenida Diagonal.

Room Tip: Rooms come with kitchen so you can make the most of it by cooking -- we did, since it was New Year...

Quiet location near metro station, small kitchenette usefull for prepare simple food.
Good price for hotel garage. Should be much better with separation between living room and bedroom. Good value for money.

First of all a big thank you to Farooq for the excellent service that he provided to us. We a few minor issues on the firsts day but they where sorted out within 20 mins. (Dead stove and then the mircowave died _ replaced within 10 mins of reporting).

The rooms are well laid out and the kitchens come well equipped. Our only 2 issues where no onsite swimming pool - but you have the beach down the road and the other issue is the plumbing - you know when one of the neighbouring rooms have flushed their toilet or taking a shower (powerful water flows - good shower to use).

Would recommend to anyone and would use again - nearby supermarket - only €30 euros by cab to the airport.

Room Tip: The smaller rooms are at the front of the hotel and the larger rooms are towards the back on each f...
