I just stayed for four nights and have to say that while very basic my stay was really good at Martinval.
- The attention by the staff was always very courteous, they were keen to know at all times if there was any problem so they could correct it.
- The room was very spacious and modern. It was quite basic, but I am not sure I needed anything else for my stay. I would just add a safe to the room just for peace of mind.
- The shared bathroom was brand new and always clean and the couple of opportunities where there was a problem the staff where quite expedient in fixing it.
- The location was great as it was close to everything but at the same time far enough to be away from the tourist chaos. There are three metro stations nearby one of which takes you directly to the Barceloneta (beach). A local market is also two blocs away, here you can buy great fruits, Serrano ham, or anything else you'd like.
A couple of negatives:
- Because they are undergoing construction there was always this feeling of dust in the floor, I assume this would be solved once the construction ends.
- The WiFi could be improved, I had some problems to connect to the WiFi as it kept resetting itself -or so it seemed-.
