“Lots of charm in a different place with charachter and a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Great location with a very, very kind Staff. Really spacious room with high ceilings so it felt really comfortable. Kamilo was always very helpful and the location is just perfect. If you are looking for a modern place this might not be your choice. But if you are looking for a beautiful, cozy and charming place with a great location. This is definitely the place to go!

April 2012 just stayed here. It's a beautiful old apartment building, marble stairwell and wooden high ceilings with old wooden doors and shutters in the apartments and lovely tiled floors. If you want all mod cons this may not be the place for you, everything was a bit dusty. The electrics are a bit ropey, if we plugged a kettle in, it turned the lights off but we managed. However, the staff especially Camillo were so helpful. We called them a few hours after arriving and as the weather wasn't great we needed to put the heating on. They bought over a portable heater, a kettle, tea bags and extra duvets within a couple of hours and Camillo spent a while ensuring we didn't electrecute ourselves. The corridors are lamp lit and smell of candles.
The street Josep Anselm which the hotel is on has loads of great bars if you turn right out of the apartment block. The location is very central and you can easily get everywhere from here. If you stay at the weekend like we did you do get hen and stag party noise at night from the Ramblas which is very close but Barcelona tends to have a lot of street noise anyway. On the plus side you can also hear the water at the port which is nice. And El Raval and Barri Gotic, one either side of the Ramblas are on your doorstep and great areas to explore, tons of bars and tapas joints. Don't stay if you like modern, bland, perfect hotels as everything is a bit rickety, mis-matched glasses, all a bit random. But if you have a travellers spirit you'll love this place, it's so full of character and my friend and I would go back in a heartbeat.

Two good things about this hostel/apartment: The location couldn't be better and the wifi connection really works and is quite fast. Ok. The room is very old fashioned, I mean VERY! You feel like it's your grandpas house on the farm. Beds are just ok while the cleanliness of the room is not that good and the bathroom is the worst thing about it. Not too noisy so, if you don't mind sleeping with very ancient bed clothes, you'll probably have a good night sleep. The staff consists in just a girl that stays there night and day (at least the only person I've seen). She is kind and speaks an understandable english so the language may not be a problem. In the end: the price is high for what you get, which is not much. Would look for another place for my next Barcelona stay.

The building's location is perfect. Situated in walking distance to the Ramblas, the gothic part of town, all the shopping - and the beach! I bought a 10 trip metro card upon arrival and I only used two trips during my whole stay.
Rooms are individually decorated and pretty big. I found everything spotless. As the hostel used to be a flat you can still find old floor tiling and stucco which adds extra charm - but might make the place look a little run down to some. I really loved the looks, though!
If you have a light sleep don't stay in a room facing the street. There are bars around and sometimes you can hear people on their way home in the early morning hours. On the other hand - if you wanna be out and about at night - your bed will only be a few steps away!
There is no reception, but if you book in advance you'll be met with a friendly smile upon arrival! Plus you'll always have a contact number to call their staff if you need anything.
