“Disappointed”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

I agree with others on here that the location is great but this review relates to the hotel. Had a three night stay here. Our first night we were given a tiny room (412), the small window overlooked the internal atrium of the hotel and the double bed was up against the wall thus meaning access was from 1 side only. There were no tea and coffee facilities despite the hotels website stating there would be. I complained and was told the hotel was full and to check with reception in the morning. When I spoke to the morning receptionist she was clearly annoyed that her colleague had left her to deal with it.

I was again told that the hotel was full but I insisted we were given a room with the correct facilities. We had to pack our suitcases and leave them at reception for the day to allow them to find us another room. Second room was better (510), we could at least access the bed from both sides!

There is no bar in the hotel and breakfast is served in the basement.

I would not recommend the hotel and would suggest no traveller accepts room 12 on any floor as they are tiny. (See the room plan photo)

Had a very good experience staying at the hotel.

The location was great - very close to the Ramblas and Metro stop (Universitat). Lots of handy local shops and amenities. We always felt totally comfortable and safe.

Room was clean, spacious, modern and comfortable. Only reason for not awarding 5 out of 5 was because there wasn't a mirror in the room and the air con didn't really work well to cool the room at night. Other than that (and those were only very minor things), we had an enjoyable stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone staying on a budget.

It definitely helped make our brief stay in Barca very pleasant!

We stayed in this hotel in October 2013, and thought that it was convenient and very nice, 10 min from ramblers. Our room was great, spacious, light and airy with doors out to a verandah. TV was useless with only 1 channel which was in English (bbc world news). Breakfast is good and only 9 euros each so not expensive at all. Bed very comfortable and bathroom very large with a wonderful shower. Oh and a kettle in the room, but take a supply of tea bags because they only supply a couple of bags on arrival.

Stayed here for 4 nites on city break, had veranda on San Antoni street, noisy if opened doors but had a wonderful stay, clean spacious rooms, very comfy bed, wet room, excellent wifi reception, really couldn't fault it.
Breakfast was good value 9 euros, lots of local restaurants to visit, area lot quieter than las ramblas at end of sightseeing day.
In reality las ramblas is a good 10 -15 min away if u walk quickly!

This hotel is just 5 minutes walk from las rambla. We stayed there for 3 nights and only went to sleep there. Whenever we got back in the evening, the room was nice and clean. The staff were very friendly

Reviewed 10 October 2013

Stayed there early Oct. Hotel located in an off-tourist area but walkable to La Ramblas. Rooms are basic with safe, mini bar and kettle. Staff very helpful. Good wifi + there is a computer in the lobby. From airport, take Aerobus and stop at Universitat + 2 blocks of walking. Metro, bus stops, taxi stand (opposite) are a few metres away. I recommend this hotel for its location and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Choose upper floor rooms due to rambling noise of nearby subway

Reviewed 10 October 2013

the hotel was clean and handy for getting about, I would have liked it better had my bedroom window not looked down the lift shaft, when you went into the room you felt trapped because you couldn't see out, in the morning you had to go down stairs to look outside so as to choose what clothes to wear for the day for the day, being trapped and not able to see daylight really spoilt my holiday.

Room Tip: make sure you dont have a room facing the lift shaft
