"Super cute and clean hotel. Helpful staff!"
This hotel is so cute and especially a good deal for the value. It is within a ten minute walk to la rambla and the gothic quarter. The hotel staff speaks English and we had not problem communicating with them. They also helped me track down my missing cell phone (i left it in a cab) and helped me get it back in the US! Great customer service and super cute hotel.
I stayed here in April 2016 with my boyfriend for a short 3 day city break. The hotel is very close to the metro station which is great to get around the city and the staff were very friendly. We were upgraded which was a lovely surprise, but the view was not very nice and there was still tape over some of the furnishings in the bathroom where it had obviously just been refurbished. Very clean, quite small rooms. Air conned and as our room was at the back of the hotel it was pretty quiet! The hotel was close to a restaurant called Moritz and the food was delicious! There are also a few little bakeries close by. We didn't have breakfast at the hotel but glad we didn't as it's just the foyer/seating area turned into tables etc as there is no proper restaurant or bar. Overall, it's a great affordable hotel if you're going to be out most the time exploring the city!
"Perfect for exploring Barcelona"
Very friendly greeting at reception from Patricia who was most helpful during our visit with tours etc,as were all the staff.promised upgrade for my 70 birthday but hotel was full but our room was very good and clean with comfy bed great shower and good qualitiy bathroom products.good position as quiet and just 10 mins walk to the main square were we joined the tour busses.breakfast was fresh and simple with a good selection of breads cheeses else scrambled eggs and good selection of fresh fruit would definatly stay again
Stayed overnight pre cruise. Handy for port 20 euro in taxi. Hotel is OK but lack sole. NO bar no food. B/fast average but eating area very small. First hotel in the world where I have been asked to vacate the table (whilst still drinking my tea) so others standing waiting for breakfast could be seated. Made my feelings known and was appologised to by duty manager. Bad start to the day.
"Do not bother"
The only saving graces to this hotel are the staff and the location. The staff was friendly and always helpful. It is close to a metro and bus lines. The rooms are small and rather stark. There are no wall hangings just plastic vanilla wallpaper, which had several serious seam separations. I hope the decorator got serious mental counseling, the place is very dark browns and vanilla. The hallways are only lit over the rooms door. There is a bed, one chair and an end table. Don't plan working with your laptop. There is no coffee service in the room, something very serious as the breakfast service does not start until 0730 and we had a 0630 taxi to the airport. Almost forgot, they do not have a business center, you pay 2 euro for 30 minutes of online and you cannot print anything. This place is low rent. The staff was great. All in all we cannot recommend this place and we will never return.
