“Nice Central Hotel”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

We spent two night in this hotel at the start of April. It is located towards the top of La Ramblas so extremely central and close to the Metro.
The hotel itself is very clean and secure. Staff helpful and friendly. The room we stayed in (129) was small but more than adequate. It contained a fridge and microwave which would be extremely handy if not wanting to eat out. It faced into an alleyway with no real view but we knew this when we booked.

The buffet bar was fine for a small snack or breakfast but would not really be suitable for a “dinner”. However what food was there was fresh and tasty.
Unlimited free drinks which were fine but did not really take advantage as our time was short and we wanted to explore the area.

A decent hotel and I would return

With only 20 rooms it is not busy so we found it quiet which for us, was an unexpected bonus.
The style was palatial with beautiful decor, chandeliers, etc. We went for a superior room overlooking Rambla de Catalunya which was not noisy but gave us an interesting and relaxing view while we ate breakfast, supper or simply chilled out at our bedroom window.
The food was an all day cold buffet with fresh food and refreshments free.
As we intended dining out each day the buffet was ideal.
The location is two blocks North of Plaza de Catalunya which is the hub for the airport shuttle and the various tour buses. The South side of the Plaza de C. is Las Ramblas. Location excellent.
The staff were all very friendly, spoke perfect English and could not be more helpful.
You have probably guessed, we are going to stay there again.

What a find! Frequent traveler and to be so pleasantly surprised is a fast diminishing occurrence for us. We stayed for four nights and the food, rooms, fellow guests and above all staff made this a most memorable stay. Location and ice cold beer on tap were the icing on the cake. Will make this our first choice for any future stays in Barcelona.

Stayed here last month with 15 friends for the football. Very good hotel with very friendly staff. The location of the hotel is perfect as it is only a 5 min walk to the Ramblas.
Free 24 hour buffet went down well with our party as you can just help yourself when you want.
Rooms nice and clean.
We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has a 24 hour buffet! The food is simple but good. Beer, wine, juice and soft-drink on tap, as well as soft serve ice-cream. It has an amazing (ornate & pink) lounge/dining area with plenty of seating and table and seats on the balconies which overlook the main street (la Ramblas). The staff are friendly and very helpful. The lounge and bedrooms are pretty pink, but if you guys can see past this it's a great place to stay. Very central, loads good shopping close by, and a lovely walk down la Ramblas. Wi-Fi available, but a bit slow.

Reviewed 25 December 2013

Loved the quirkiness of this hotel. The juxtaposition of public rooms which were meticulously restored Louis XIV with the bedrooms which were tired French Provincial 1960s was quite endearing and certainly added an individual touch - definitely not your bog-standard modern chain hotel. The lady of the house and all her staff were charming, helpful and friendly and the location of the hotel could not be better.
Pricewise, we had a pretty good special offer but I think I would have found the bedrooms definitely below par if we had paid the full price.
We live in the province of Barcelona and often book a hotel when we go to the city for concerts, theatre etc and the main reason I would not book into this hotel again would be that I found the bed far too hard.......if they provided a couple of rooms with softer beds available on request, I would certainly return whenever they have a special offer.

Even if we live in Barcelona, we booked one night due to a celebration nearby.
Nice building on an unbeatable location.
The only good thing at this property was the staff. Everyone was helpfull and professional.
All the rest was aweful, tired, ugly and not in acordance with such a historic building.
Everthing is plastic, too many chairs and small tables, rose cloths, towels, duvets, sheets...
The room which was second best category in the hotel and well over 100€ was just adecuate for sleeping.
I have never seen such a terrible design in all my worldwide travels.

The buffet is clean but the presentation is like in the 70-ies with plastic and paper cups and plates. The kitchen cloths and the small towels you get on the fridge in the room were worn and washed. My grandma had similar onea about 35 years ago!!!
Horrible experience!
There are lots of excellent and more modern hotels nearby for half the price.
We would definitely never come back even if we were paid to do so.
