i just got back from trip to barcelona with my friend and we were very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. spend three nights here. price is more than great for this level of accommodation. I would recemmend this to everyone seeking a budget friendly accommodation but not like to share room with strangers. :)

Location: Great. 5 mins walk to Sants train station, where you can take the RENFE train to the airport and the metro is just across the street. Camp Nou is a leisurely 20 mins walk from the hotel, via a huge tree lined pedestrian avenue, which are well-lit all the way. Don't have to worry too much after coming back from a late game at the stadium and flying off the next morning.

Room: Very very very basic (did I mention very?). But clean and functional. Can be noisy as the walls are very thin, especially during midnite and breakfast time. But thumbs up to the hotel for giving us an upgrade to an ensuite room.

Verdict: This hotel is a good option to consider if you want your own room but hate spending money on accommodation. And especially if you're planning to watch a game at Camp Nou. Definitely unsuitable for couples, unless your partner is a hippie or as cheap as you.

Last November I wrote a review in which I told that I had made a new reservation.
This time I stayed four nights and was very pleased what I got for my money.
The reception area was totally renewed. I observed that the security has increased to high level. The new reception desk was next to the lift and room keys were kept in a closed drawer.
This is the first budget priced hotel where I have noticed a sprinkler system in rooms.

Location was perfect. Next to metro station, with walking distance from Sants station.
My room was small, but the wiew from a little balcony was great.
There was bad smell in the bathroom which was caused because of a defect plumbing line.
Anyway, this was a great value for money.
I did stay five nights and I have already made a new booking for four nights.

We arrived at Sants Station late at night and needed something cheap we could walk to. The area outside Sants is very pleasant with a well lit boulevard lined with restaurant tables so an easy safe walk to the hotel. Pleasant staff and room though basic was spotless. Bathroom OK though shower screen needing replacement. Also could not figure out how to open window shutters to let in light. Aircon and small TV. Would recommend if you are on a tight budget.
