Can only agree with previous comments. Hotel is located in very noisy area and traffic continues throughout the night making sleep impossible for most of the time.
The hotel is perhaps of 2* standard at best. There is a bar but, we were told by reception staff it never opens and it certainly didn't during our stay.
Rooms are very basic and definately not 4*.standard.
The hotel staff are both unhelpful and unfriendly as others have stated.
There are many hotels in the Las Ramblas area and this one is poor in comparison to all others we saw there. It needs new staff who are committed to customer service, double glazing in rooms and facilities like a bar should be open not just left in darkness unused. This hotel could not be reccomended.
