Ranked #451 of 517 Hotels in Barcelona
Reviewed 8 May 2014

Our stay had a rather tricky start, being given a room at the back of the hotel that was dark, dirty and very small with the only window available opening directly onto a brick wall. After complaining, we were moved to a new room, which was little better, with the above followed by a broken air conditioning system. Honestly, if you are thinking of going to Barcelona, do it, but just don't pay out for this place.

Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

We had originally booked into an apartment which turned out to be a complete disaster so we decamped to here. We were lucky enough to be in a back room 614 which gave us a great view over rooftops to Sagrada Familia. The room was spotlessly clean and the beds so very comfortable. Breakfast too expensive so we went to the cafe two doors down and had great food and coffee. Mccarthys almost next door was our local haunt for a drink. Brilliant Mohitjas for €3.
Excellent location for sightseeing, close to the Cathedral, Picasso museum and the Catalan Music museum. Ramblas in easy walking distance. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel but sleep at the back.

Excellent

Very Very noisy room, could not sleep the whole night. Hotel is not 4 star standard, maybe 2-3 star.
We changed to a "real" 4 star hotel.
There was a big differense in the standard of hotels.
Staff was ok, location good.

This hotel is by no means 4 star but it is clean and pleasant and in a really excellent location for a city break in Barcelona. The reception staff are very helpful.

The room was rather small but very clean and had free use of a digital safe.

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.
