I stayed here for two nights but on different times. Both nights were in room 412. First night was before my cruise & second night was after my cruise due to the the days of my flight.
Very basis small room & bathroom which is fine as lots to see & do in Barcelona. It was clean, tidy, good choice for breakfast also. Breakfast was self service. Great location.
Main downside was the paper thin walls so you could hear next door speaking & when people were coming & going during the night very noisey. Very hot also in the room with the wool blanket over the sheet even with the window open.

This was our second visit to this hotel. We stayed in room 210, great direct view to la ramblas and plaza catalunya were superb. The hotel building was old but clean and spacious for 3 adults. The bathroom was clean with a bath-up. The hotel staff was very nice, well organized, and explained everything about Barcelona tourism and warned us about pickpocket. The staff printed our sagrada familia online - tickets with no charges.

Yes, because hotel location is in the hearth of hustle bustle of Barcelona, you will always near noise from street. But we don't mind, we kind enjoy it and view to plaza catalunya at night was unbeatable. Mc Donald and Burger King were next to the hotel. For shopaholic; H&m, Zara, Mango, Massimo Duty, Desigual, and Bershka, were in neighborhood. Metro was on the front door of the hotel.

We booked the hotel 5 months before, directly email to the hotel. The reservation process was easy, no cancelation fee, no deposit guarantee.

We love this hotel, and fall in love for second time. Absolutely, we will be back for third times.

The location is just PERFECT! Right on the Ramblas by the Plaza Catalunya - the nerve center of Barcelona! Metro right next door and so an easy path to anywhere in the city. Ramblas is the place to be if you want to experience Barcelona. Now, the room itself was tiny and just about make-do. If you are in Barcelona and want to spend all your time in the hotel, this one is not for you.. But, if you want to step out and experience Barcelona and come back to the hotel just to crash - this is the best value for money.

We stayed in room 312, right over the front door (of the watch shop) and the hotel. Located between McDonald's and Burger King. Bring your ear plugs. The location is central, but noisy. Austere is complimentary. Bathroom is less than 4 x 8 ft. and the drains are very slow. Though, the twin beds are comfortable. CNN and CNBC are the English language channels, though the video is un-viewable.

If you stay more than one night, ask for a new soap, as the housekeepers don't provide it. If you need a hair dryer it is to be returned after each use. Seems they don't have enough to accommodate multi-night guests.

Mold in the bathroom and bug crawling around. Probably the slowest 3 person elevator on the planet.

After searching Trip Advisor for recommendations for a hotel in Barcelona for two nights before a recent cruise, we opted to stay at Hotel Medium Monegal. It was the PERFECT place for us. First of all, being right on Placa Catalunya if provides easy access to all types of transportation. We took the Aerobus from the airport to the Placa...only $5.90 Euro paid to the driver in the bus...Cash. The last stop of the bus is at Placa Catalunya...right across the placa from the Hotel. (Tip: we printed a photo of the facade of the hotel before we leftr and it helped us locate the building quickly.) Our room was clean and adequate for the two of us. We weren't planning to spend much time in the room so we weren't concerned with roominess or glamour. The front desk is small and tight but the personnel at the desk are the best. They gave us maps, directions to sights, restaurant suggestions. The only complaint about the hotel is the elevator which is small and takes FOREVER. So remember you are on vacation and there is no need to rush.
The main attribute of the hotel is its location. We walked easily to the Barri Gotic, had breakfast each morning in La Boqueria which is just a few blocks down Ramblas. Caught the hop on hop off bus, just a few feet from our front door. Thanks to this hotel and the ease of seeing the sights, Barcelona has become one of our favorite cities. And the price is so RIGHT!!

Stayed at Hotel Medium Donegal in April and it is a great location at the end of Las Rambla and just across the street from Place de Cataluña. Took the bus from BCN airport to Placa de Cataluna for about 6 euros and it's about 5 minute walk to the hotel. The rail station is just across the street. The hotel sits between a Burger King and McDonald's and is about 30 steps to Las Rambla. Walking distance to the Gothic Area and 15 minute walk to Columbus statue to catch cruise port shuttle.

Breakfast was good and included in the price, no wash clothes in bathroom, rooms need ceiling fans since air was not on during the time I stayed. Safe cost an extra 3 euros per day. No ice machine. Room was a bit dated and hotel could use an update but for sleeping and showering it fit my needs.

Front desk staff and dining area staff were very helpful.
