We needed a room for a night after disembarking a cruise in the City. We have stayed before at the Hostal Opera very nearby, but felt the price had gone up too much. So, after booking our flights with easyjet, the link to a booking agent was very good.
The location is superb on the Ramblas, and the lift is worth taking. It's 60+ steps to reception!!
The reception staff was good, and efficient. We arrived at approximately 4pm, and was given an upgrade to a superior room. Basically, this meant we were given a modernised room, number 313 which overlooked the Gaudi Palace from the rooms window.
The room was clean, well turned down, and even had a TV, which aren't always provided in hostals. The TV had 3 English channels, only news channels though. The bathroom was as expected, but my only comment would be that the shower head leaked. I mentioned it on checkout, and hopefully they've fixed it.
Very good value for money considering a great city, and in the heart of it all as well.More
