“update”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

We have just spent a week here. Prepaid for double rooms and was given twins which would have been cheaper. We were offered a double but the room was so tiny with an awful outlook so we accepted the twins. the hotel wasn't in a very nice part of the city but was convenient for getting around. We got to see five rooms and all were very scruffy, bathrooms especially. We didn't have a plug in ours and when I requested one the receptionist said she didn't have one, neither did she have a key for the safe in our room.The TV didn't work and the hair-dryer fell to bits when taken off the hook but it did work. A tap in one of the bathrooms wouldn't turn off so the sound of constant trickling water had to be put up with. The curtains are ripped but are taped up with gaffer tape. the towels were threadbare but clean and changed daily. The matresses are past there best. A maggot was on my bed when I first arrived and where it came from is still a mystery. Although the stay wasn't the best and we would never return or recommend it to anyone we got through and enjoyed the city.

Room Tip: Didn't see any that looked any better than ours. The inner rooms have the air con units whirring...

I liked Auto Hoggar.It is very close to La Rambla,about 5-600 m walk on Carrer Nou de la Rambla.It was clean,towels changed every day.Not so noisy as described in the previous comments even if we stayed in a room at the street.The breakfast was basic but enough for a morning meal.The staff was very friendly,they reccomended us a local tapas bar "Can Eusebio" very close to the hotel.That was quite ok,good and cheap food/drinks and we eate there a few times paying for two around 30 euro including wine and tips.Another option is the restaurant/caffeteria right next to the hotel with more sofisticated menus but still acceptable prices.

Room Tip: rooms with double beds are bigger and higher floors offer a nice view on av. Parallel

Many corners cut to "upgrade" this hotel. Decoration in bathroom not finished and to poor quality. Room was dusty from decoration - I had to clean-up before putting clothes in wardrobe. Staff had a "don't care" attitude. No WiFi except in reception. Poor value for money.

Hot rooms, no A/C, could not turn off heat. Very dirty. Rude staff who did not care or even acknowledge complaints. Tiny rooms directly over a very busy avenue (traffic noise all night). Hard bed. No WIFI. My colleagues had an even worse experience with no water, no cold water, and broken pipes. Saw cockroach in breakfast room. I travel constantly and have stayed in thousands of hotels all over the world including Barcelona, but this is the single WORST of all! I would rather sleep in my rental car next time! AVOID! AVOID!

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs.

I stayed in this hotel from Feb 26 - March 1st 2012 in tower 2. Upon arrival there was dirt and mud in my room and bathroom. Tried to call reception via a dusty phone but it was not connected. Window in bedroom opened into a closed courtyard so no fresh air. The aircon only blew out hot and smelly/dusty air, so that had to stay off as well. Impossible to open bathroom window as it fell out of its frame when you tried to. The fittings in the shower were loose and had been fitted in a hurry. On the first morning we only had hot water available so unable to shower. At the breakfast table my colleague had a cockroach crawling up his shirt. No internet in the bedroom, only in small area in the lobby. Staff completely reactive, unprofessional and not a single excuse or acknowledgement was uttered. My colleague told me this morning that there was NO water available in the hotel today. THIS IS THE HOTEL FROM HELL so pls avoid it like the plague. I struggle to understand how this hotel is allowed to operate in the first place and it should never have been recommended to us via the Barcelona Business Pass Website. EMZ, March 2nd 2012.

Room Tip: Avoid ANY rooms in this hotel (the new tower is just as bad as the old tower - minus the cockroaches...

There are no redeaming features of this hotel. Initially I stayed in tower 2 in room 328 on my first morning in shower the hot water tank exploded above me, I escaped but entire room flooded under 4 inches of water flowing out of room into lift shaft. I had to demand another room to finish my shower, I received zero apology from the hotel - the reception staff are the worst mannered people you will ever come accross .... Wifi only works in cramped reception area when moved from 3 star tower 2 to 1 star tower 1 you realise this hotel was built in the 70's and has same decor today. It is rumoured to be changing its name shortly - please if it wasn't so awful it would have been funny.

No hot water this list goes on - please don't let this hotel spoil your stay in one of the most wonderful cities in the world
