“good location but definately not four star!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Stayed here for two nights for a weekend break. Location is really good so if you are looking more location than luxury this is the place for you.

The TV was broken-stated locked-when we asked for it to be changed they said the technician had gone home but we could change room or wait till the morning. We waited, but the next day-still broken!

Its definitely not a four star hotel, probably a 2 star but if you want something basic for a reasonable price this is the place for you!

The location of this hotel is excellent, especially close to the HOHO buses and walking distance to a lot of the sites in around the gothic area.
Unfortunately our double room was stuck in the corner of the 6th floor, 611, that had a small window overlooking all the water pipes, which made it not only noisy when everyone flushed a toilet but also was a very dark room. Our travelling friends had twin bed rooms next to us which were totally different...quite spacious and very light and bright with an external window. As it was only for 2 nights during a busy Easter period we did not complain or request a better room, but would have if we had a longer stay.
We did not have breakfast in the hotel as there are many cafés and bars nearby.

Room Tip: Recommend you ask for an external window overlooking the rear of the property.

Very good location, breakfast is very expecive in hotel service, but you can go outside. There are many small cozy berakfest restaurants.
Room was clean, but safe was only for charge. Internet was for free and speed was fair.

I got the room for a very low price. The pictures of the property make it look very modern and comfortable. The room is the equivalent of a Motel 6 with more attractive clean furnishings, very bare bones. Since my husband and I don't spend much time in hotel rooms during these types of vacations we didn't mind. The location is perfect close to the subway and walking distance int the Gothic Quarter.

I wonder the many negative comments the hotel has received, because we had no problems. Of course; it's not a four star hotel by many standards, but this is something everyone should realize by the price of the stay.
I found the location perfect, in walking distance to almost everything that's worth to see in Barcelona. The breakfast buffet was alright, the croissants were perfectly sweet. Service there was nice, there was just one situation when we couldn't get in for some minutes because there was nobody behind the reception desk to open the door, but perhaps there was some good reason for it.
We didn't find the hotel too noisy, perhaps because our room was in the upper floors.
All in all, a positive experience, better than I expected.

Stayed here for a week on a business trip. If I were paying, I would have looked for somewhere else to be honest. The rooms were tiny. Walls were paper thin and I could really have done without hearing what was going on next door.
A colleague ended up sleeping on the floor as his bed was broken.
The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly. Breakfast was poor and at €11 was hugely over-priced.
Forward facing rooms were noisy, rooms on the other side had a view of a wall.
That said, the location was superb, right in the middle of things.
