“Great location, average amenities”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

You can't beat the location. That's what you're paying for. We were in 309, facing La Rambla with a nice view down the street. Other reviews that mention no A/C are absolutely true - be prepared to sweat out all your mojitos every night. The reception desk doesn't care because the A/C works great in the lobby! No issues with the wireless. Drinks on the terrace are far over-priced, but again, you're paying for the location and superb people-watching. In the end, it's relatively clean, yes you can hear your neighbors at all hours of the night, and no, they can't make the room cooler. Did I mention you're paying for location?

Great location and nice bathroom but the positives end there. Hugely overpriced for the lack of breakfast, faulty TV, NO WIFI in the room, and worst of all NO AIR CONDITIONING.

I'm sorry but in 2013 for over 100 Euros a night to not have air conditioning in a city that roasts all summer is ludicrous and completely unacceptable. The boy at reception made ridiculous denials and excuses and did nothing in the slightest to help. Completely unprofessional and well below par. You'd be better off sharing a dorm in a youth hostel.

Don't make the mistake I did. There is nothing "cool" about this hotel, figuratively or literally. Shameful.

I wanted to book a surprise for my fiancé and I wanted a good hotel right on Las Ramblas with a city view. Well that's exactly what I got. The people of the hotel were very friendly and very helpful. They gave us a free map to help us get around and offered lots of tours for you to book with them. We stayed for 3 nights and the room was cleaned everyday fresh towels and bedding. Even tho it was right on the strip with a city view there was hardly any noise atall, once we closed the windows it was really quite. I couldn't of asked for a better stay here. I would defiantly stay here again.

Nice, normal European, minimalist decor, a bit smallish. Our room faced the side street. The noise was minimal with the white noise app on my phone allowing for good sleeping. Neighborhood felt very safe. Virtually no hotel lobby. Very nice roof deck offering a great bird's eye view of La Rambla. The subway was barely perceptible as it runs beneath La Rambla. I'd stay here again.

The rooms are small but functional, good size bathroom. Can't beat the location very central to everything, located on La Rambla. Good buffet breakfast, lots of selections.
Very clean. Staff very helpful and able to provide information regarding point of interest as well as book excursions.

The staff were friendly and very helpful in assisting us to select a tour of the city and upgrading us to balcony rooms. We did not partake of breakfast due to an early flight but dining area looked nice and guests have access to a roof terrace overlooking la Rambla. We were pleasantly surprised that our rooms were so quite being in such a busy area.

Right on La Rambla with room overlooking the street - very quiet considering. Except for one young lady at breakfast the staff are not very friendly, not very helpful and at times quite abrupt. They seem to forget who is paying their wages!
Breakfast, the only meal available in the restaurant, was acceptable with hot and cold food but not a lot of choice. Our room was very good for our purposes - 2 ensuites (shower and toilet), double bed and double sofa bed. No refrigerator and no safe. Very clean and well maintained.
If the staff attitude is not an issue then location and room prices make good value. Plenty of supermarkets/eating places nearby.
