“Good hotel for one night”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

This hotel is situated realllyyyyyy close to Las Ramblas...2 minutes walking distance actually, the rooms are clean, the bathroom, the towels...attention bring your one toiletries.If you are there for just one night and you want to be close of the main street (Las Ramblas) then you can stay here. If not....just chose a different area, cause this one is scary.When we got out of San Antoni metro and start walking on the small street where the hotel is situated I was already afraid cause the people who leave there seem really strange and the street smells like pee everywhere and the building look like they will fall down on you.We passed by the entrance at the hotel cause it was so small I didn't even realize it was there. Oh one other thing.....We checked in at 2 pm, they give us a room on the last floor, we put our staff in, tok a shower and head out the door to enjoy the day....around 7 pm we got back to shower again and go out....and when we arrve at the hotel the guy at the reception, told us that they changed our room and they gave us the key to a room on second floor(YESSSS THEY MOVED OUR STUFF FROM ROOM 403 TO 205....like realllyyyyyy??????we had personal stuff out everywere in the room and they put them in the same order in the new room with a strange precision which means that they have already done that before)by the way....you always leave your key at the reception when you leave the room...strange again.Oh, oh....and when you get out in the street you will imediately be asaulted by guys who sell pot :-))))).Honestly if you don't find anything else....it's ok for one night....but anyway it's to expensive for what you get. We are not fancy, or snobs, We stayed in a lot of others budget hotels before but this one was really disappointing.

Room Tip: Double bed, private bathroom

Tiny single room, short on natural light (window faces a wall) with small LCD TV. The room had a bad smell of sprays(!?) Modern bathroom with good shower. Breakfast is simple but way better than what I was expecting from the reviews (actually above average for my standards for this price range). Really small breakfast room (and you need to tell the staff that there is no more bread, juice, etc). Overall clean. Free wifi (very weak signal in my room though). Location: a 10 minute walk from Las Ramblas and the subway (the street is dodgy but I didn't feel any danger - there are people on the street and many restaurants and bars nearby). The design of the hotel is cool but overall it looks and feels less charming than the photos show; it has more of a cold/industrial feel than a chic and fashionable one. Reception is on the first floor. Luggage-only lift. Friendly, professional and helpful staff. Maybe a little bit overpriced for what it is.

Clean hostel, nice staff and spacious enough. I liked the room furniture in particular.
We have been good and it is very close to the centre.

However it tends to be noisy outside during the night and situated in a multicultural area, although we had no problems about it.

Let's be clear, this a hostal, not a hotel and a horrible one at that. We were attracted by the grossly misleading photos, and advertising that makes it appear light and trendy and welcoming. It's unprepossesing from the outside and that didn't change on the inside. There's only a lift for luggage, so you better enjoy stairs.We'd booked the top floor terrace suite, and had been led to believe it was spacious with a private terrace. The room was tiny, one uncomfortable looking bed and a sofa bed crammed in to a space not large enough to swing a cat, and a shabby bathroom. The private terrace was just a section of the communal terrace, so not very private at all. The room stank of bleach, the sofa was filthy, the curtains had holes in. Contrary to the clean, refreshing green and white of the photos, the decor was tired and dismal. More of a cell than a suite. It was so depressing we checked out again straight away and had to pay for a night we didn't stay there. We went to a hotel five minutes away that was cheaper, with a much bigger room, delightful decor, a lift and lovely staff. So don't be fooled by talk of it being value for money, it isn't. At 120 euros a night it was a total rip off.

Only stayed here for 1 night with my family. On arrival we had an issue which thanks to the man on reception (wish I had his name but due to the stressful situation forgot to take it) the matter was resolved to everyone's satisfaction... I can not thank him enough for that.
The Hostel was basic, but seemed to be clean enough. We had a room on the top floor which had its on quite impressive roof top terrace. The room was tidy and big enough to sleep 4.
Breakfast is very basic, and to be truthful food that was there was not being replenished quick enough and the kids didn't enjoy it so it was a trip to McDonald's to feed them up.
All in all, it's an ok place for a bed for the night so thanks.

The hotel was quite average, I really cant complaint for the price we paid. But the street the hotel is in is a completely different story. Looks safe enough but I personally wouldn't go out after dark by myself. All attractions are at close distance and there is a La Rambla tube line 10 min walk from the hotel. So its quite incontinently located. Breakfast is ok - just cereals and toast nothing much. but as I said for the price we paid its fair enough.
