“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

We stayed in this hotel from 6-9 February. We upgraded to a "standard twin room" from a "basic room", as the rooms looked tiny on the website. We were charged 20 Euros per night and it is well worth doing. Spacious room with a nice bathroom although there is not a proper door which does make the bathroom rather unprivate!
The best thing about this hotel is the location - it is a minutes walk from the Plaza Catalunya - a central hub for all transport links, metro and a 2 minute walk from the start of Las Ramblas. We used mainly the metro and hop on hop off bus which I would thoroughly recommend.
The free wifi is strong and very handy.
Staff are very friendly and welcoming.
The only negative thing we encountered was that the staff were not very accomodating when we asked for a late check out - which was unavailable. However they happily looked afterr our luggage for the day as check out was 12pm and our flight was not until 9pm.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this central hotel for a short break in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a standard room

Dear Blondie067,

Thank you very much for publishing this review. We are sure it will be useful for future guests.

Soryy about the late check-out. The hotel is mostly fully booked and it is not always possible to have it. Nevertheless, as you say, we have no problem in keepeing your luggage until you pick it up.

We hope we can welcome you again very soon and, please, do not hesitate to get in touch with us for any future needs.

Best regards,

Marta Pladevall

This hotel is very well located. The rooms are very well appointed, nicely decorated and spotless! the beds very comfortable and if you are lucky, you even get a small terrasse where you can sit and enjoy a drink. Their rooftop bar is nice for a drink. The breakfast buffet is great, fresh food and lots of choice. The people from the reception desk are extremely helpful. I travelled with a friend and would definitely go back.

The location is great; just one block off catalunya plaza. The reception people were very nice and helpful and they all spoke English well enough. We upgraded to a slightly larger room with a tiny balcony over the Main Street and it was well worth the extra ~$30 a night. The view from the rooftop at night is beautiful. There are two breakfast places across the street - the cafe directly across and the organic market just down the block, both great. I've already recommended this hotel to friends.

We got this hotel recommended by friends. Upon arrival, it looked very promising with its smart reception area and a very nice room. The were however quite a few disappointments experienced through our three night stay. Most critical was sleep quality. The bed was rock hard and no duvets were provided. The door to the adjoining room was not well isolated so we were disturbed.by noise from the other room. Service was another another problem. Whereas service in the reception area was good, my request for a kettle did not come through as promised. The keycards needed reactivation once, this would not have been remembered were it not for the painfully slow elevator. Internet connection was slow and intermittent, both in room and in the breakfast area. The water temperature and pressure in the shower was excellent. The best feature with this hotel is probably its location add value for money.

Everyone is friendly! The room is not so big but compare the price and especially the location, i don't think that will be a problem at all. It is still quite safe in the neighborhood even in the evening. Really near the train station. We had very nice time in Barcelona.

Barcelona was the last stop on our honeymoon and this hotel was a great place to top it all off. The staff was very friendly and helpful with maps and recommendations. We stayed in a room facing the street, the balcony door opened up and we had a nice view of the city. There is a roof top bar that was a great place to kick back after a long day of walking. The hotel is a little off the main road, but not much and has subway locations with in a block.( About 2 blocks away from La Ramba) We didn't mind it at all! The breakfast every morning was great, and so many things to choose from! We would stay again!
