“Excellent value for this money”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Excellent location of the hotel: one minute away from plaza catalunya and rambla street, very close to bus and metro station. 15 minutes away from balto house. A lot of shops near the hotel. Its clean. Some negative info: no hotel parking, sometimes its loud at night on the street, the wooden windows are old and you here everything from the street.

Well located place near Plaza Catalunya. Modest, but clean and well kept. We were traveling with three kids, and had the cuad room, which was very nice with air con. Asked for an extra bed, could not get it, but we managed to squeeze the youngest with us. When leaving for the airport, receptionist convinced us to get a taxi which would cost 25-30 euros. It ended up costing 45 euros, even though the taxi had a meter.

Room Tip: The doubles are pretty small.

Stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is located very central and its just a few mins walk from Placa Catalunya. We took the Aerobus from the airport and got us to there in under 40 mins and it stops right outside the El Corte Ingles department store. Its very convenient.

The hotel is on the first floor of a big building and you need to buzz in. Next door there is a pharmacy and a small cafe takeaway. Its worth going there for breakfast as its cheap and tasty croissants and churros!

The staff were very friendly and gave us a big room for the first 2 nights (meant for 4). We found it was spacious but it was a bit noisy as it was situated next to reception. The final night, we were in a twin room. The room is small but it was clean and equipped with everything from kettle to hairdryer.

The lady behind the reception did not speak English, however, when I ask about whether she can help me as my shoulder bag broke. She got her needles and thread out and did her magic. My bag is still intact and the sewing was good. Thanks to her.

Room Tip: If you want some quieter room, not 107.

We stayed here for the Easter weekend. Room was small and basic. However it had free air conditioning, wifi and tea and coffee making facilities. It was also very clean. I would stay here again, for the price paid it was a bargain. The staff were also friendly.

Stayed here for 3 nights and staff were extremely helpful even when we arrived nearly 12 hours early due to a last minute change of flight time. Even though the rooms were not ready as it was before check in time and we were expected till late that night they kept our bags for us and even offered us a room to freshen up in just off the reception. All the staff were very helpful and printed tickets we had booked online for us etc. Room itself was perfect. It had a tv, safe, our own bathroom and two single beds as requested. The room was cleaned daily. Beds were extremely comfortable and they had extra blankets and pillows in the wardrobe. Location was again perfect close to metros and the main street. Very easy to find as the aerobus brought us to plaza catalunya and it was on one of the main streets across from it. Will definitely come back to this hotel - staff made it a great place to stay.

Just got back from BCN after staying at Hotel Pelayo with my boyfriend. If you're looking for a cheap city break hotel this is the one for you! Perfect location, clean and safe! Very helpful staff, would return!
