“Only stay here if you cannot find anywhere else!”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Pros:
-They arranged for a taxi to take us to Barcelona El Prat as well as a wake up call. 
-The location is a 10 min walk to La Sagrada Familia and 7 minutes to Glories on the red line. 
-There was a wi-fi signal that reached our room most of the time. 
-Very good security. 

Cons:
-They speak zero English. We made good use of our Spanish, but would be impossible if you don't speak Spanish. 
-You can feel every spring on the bed. 
-The sheets were dirty and stained. We left a note after the first night asking them to please clean the sheets. They were not changed, so I asked them after the second night. I was told that since we were only staying four nights they would not change them. I had to convince them that they were in fact dirty. 
-You have to get buzzed into the hotel building, then meet with the receptionist on shift to have them unlock your floor door, and then you can unlock your own door. 
-Terrible value at 70 euros a night.

Reviewed 27 April 2011

As there were no reviews on the internet for this hotel we took a risk booking it, but very glad we did. Less than 10 minutes walk to Sagrada Familia , felt very safe late at night when walking back from a day out. Not ideal if you want to be near Las Ramblas and other main tourist attractions but we didn't worry as the metro was so close by, approx 7 minutes walk (Monumental station). Hotel proprietors didn't speak much English but we managed fine and they were very helpful when my purse was stolen, directing us to the nearest Police Station. Rooms were spotless, towels changed daily and beds made, comfiest beds I've slept in for a long time. Room was ensuite, unusual in lower priced accommodation and cost £75 per night for 3 people. Would definitely go back.
