“Closet living”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

What is good about this hotel? - great location, walking distance to La Rambla and many attractions and friendly staff

What is bad? - I do not understand how this hotel is 4-star rated. In the US this hotel will be considered as a motel. The hotel itself is like a closet and the rooms are even smaller. Weak internet connection. Breakfast not included. The staff are nice and friendly but clueless about local attraction and good eating places. Over all I will not stay here again.

To list the positive things about this hotel:
- Friendly staff
- GREAT location (2 minutes walk to Universitas, 10 minutes walk to Catalanya)
- Quiet hotel, we didnt experience any noise from traffic or people.
- Good standard, clean bathrooms and good shower.
- Ok roofterrace with a small (not heated) pool.
- Good price
The negative:
- Bad lightning in the room.
- Extremely hard beds, but at least this made us get up early in the mornings.
- Small room (we got the smallest they have)
- Expensive breakfast, we choose to eat at the local cafees.

Room Tip: Quiet rooms are normally the smallest

We got a good price for 4 nights at this hotel. Half price of many other hotels we checked for this trip. Central location, but we would prefer to stay on the east side of La Rambla and a little bit closer to the beach. Took a taxi to the beach. Cost €10.

Terrace on top quite nice, but the jaccuzi did not work and looked very dirty.

We did not eat breakfast at the hotel. There is a local cerveceria just around the corner and a Starbucks close by as well.

Free Wifi and very good quality.

We did not stay here cancelled on arrival the reasons no restaurant no live shows as advertised. The rooms were dark and very noisy. Sorry not for us. We checked out and found a better hotel for less money. Never to return

Room Tip: No idea we did not stay

Very good location and friendly staff. Once again free wi-fi is included but it only worked when the room door was open to the corridor. Nice patio in our room and the terrace and the pool are a real bonus in city centre. Cleaning of rooms was sloppy. Terrace and location tip the over all balance just on the positive side.

Very reasonable hotel quite close to centre of Barcelona. Our room was big enough and air con and fridge made a bid difference to our comfort. There could be a brighter light on a mirror as putting on make up was a problem. Breakfast is a bit more expensive than local cafes BUT worth it for choice of food and real table linen. Rooftop pool and Jaccuzzi very welcome in the heat. we had a room at the front and there was constant noise from traffic on the main road. This doesn't bother me and my friend used ear plugs so no problem there. We loved Barca and this hotel is well placed in proximity to bus stop/ underground station and the main squares and the Ramblas.

Room Tip: Consider noisy but interesting views at the front as opposed to quieter but no view ( gives on to sq...
