1004 room has some buzz. Especially it may be heard at night.

Basic Accommodations for the Non-Fussy VisitorPosted Aug 7, 2013
Pros: People pleasant; tho not in center of things, it was easy to reach major tourist and shopping sites. OK for a 2 nite visit
Cons: Better focus on helping visitors; complaints about ACs should be taken more seriously with good response at any hour. Replace old ACs w. modern units
Location: 10 min bus drive to Parc Gruel; Sagrada Familia & 3 other Gaudi cites in walking distance; easy Metro/bus/walking travel; Garcia Tourist Off a plus
Upon arrival, it looked like the hotel was in a residential area off the beaten path. But there's a Metro station across the street, 2 bus routes that pass the hotel, and it was a short 5 minute walk to a Barcelona Tourist office on Garcia and then a 20 to 30 minute walk to Plaza de Cantalunya with lots of shops and cafes and 3 Gaudi building sites along the way. But the hotel does not seem to cater well to tourist or business clients. They had only a street map to offer, an adequate breakfast but no other amenities. The AC in my room did not work and two calls to attend to it got only minimal response. My first call was at 2 am and I was told there was no one available to check it at that time. The 2nd day the maid tried to adjust it and it seemed it just needed more time to kick in. But that night, again after midnight, it was not working and it was doubtful I would get a response from the front desk to investigate, so I just took a cool shower and slept without even a top sheet. The temp was set to 19 deg Celsius but the thermostat registered btw 28 and 31 degrees. The room also smelled musty, with a hint of cigarettes lingering even tho I specified the need for a smoke free room

Excellent value for city hotelPosted Jul 29, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, helpful friendly staff, location
Cons: Would prefer tea/coffee facilities in room but we took travel kettle and that was ok.
Location: Busy street but hotel doubleglazing good. Church opposite with bell tower but it only rings for the hour/quarter hours, no pealing of bells on Sundays
This hotel rated 2 star, and as it has no bar/lounge or swimming pool, or full dining services (we had breakfast once, was just fine but we like to sit outside and many cafes/bakers nearby) then of course rating reflects this. However on the basis of efficient staff service, fresh modern interior and standard of room service/cleanliness, it deserves 3 stars. The location ideal to be out of real buzz of the city's busiest streets while in walking distance of same;with metro station 5 minutes walk and the Gracia underground station access only across and down the street a few yards, moving around city or connecting to railway for further afield is easy. The hotel is quiet. The main street outside is noisy with traffic during day and quietens later in day but only aware when we opened sliding doors - book room 814 for a full-width balcony (see photos of hotel frontage and see the balustrade below 'hotel' sign!) The reason I marked down for comfort of room is that there is no table/chairs on balcony, we used chair and little stool from room, and also only 2 coathangers! Also no bidet which is unusual for continental hotels. All in all very good value for a major city.

an awesome budget hotelPosted Jul 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
i was in town for two weeks teaching a course at the UniBarca and i stayed at the augusta. the location is really great. next to the gracia stop and a few blocks from fontana. shops and restaurants are abundant in the gracia district and the neighborhood is safe. the rooms are kept clean and the facilities work . i stayed in a single room which was enough for me, and although the bed was rather small for my big stature, it did the job. their morning breakfast was great the time that i used it. the staff is really helpful . i would totally stay here on my next trip to barca. visca!

Good budget hotelPosted Jul 21, 2013
Nice, clean, friendly, no frills hotel away from the hustle and bustle of the centre of the town, but close enough to walk (20 mins) or 2 metro stations into the heart of Barcelona.

Good price. You get what you pay for. Easy reach of most of touristic points and business regions by Metro

Just What I Needed.Posted Jul 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
After many web hits with “Shared Bathrooms” (agricultural in my approach to life, I do have a thing about shared bathrooms) I was happy to find an ostensibly grand establishment with all rooms en-suite. Having booked, I wondered if all the images of curving, classical staircases and tasteful, contemporary rooms weren't perhaps a bit much, a decoy for some darker, hidden secret - lack of a proper roof, maybe, or proximity to an early-morning pig abattoir. I was, then, happy to walk into a cool, tidy foyer with an efficient receptionist who spoke English (and German) so I didn't have to risk offence with my mangled Spanglish. Check-in was simple and lifts serve all floors. The single room was "compact", the en-suite surprisingly large; both were clean and well screwed together (bar a slightly wobbly toilet). The air-con was highly effective and astonishingly quiet – even for a noise-neuro decibel-fascist like me. Silent coolness, caressing me from subtle conduits: beautiful. There are plenty of local cafés, Metro and FGC stations close by and a Dia supermarket round the corner. The Molina-Sant Gervasi interchange has further dining/refreshment opportunities and many splendid destinations. A tip: get the "T-10 1 Zona" ticket from the self-service machines: 10 trips on mixed modes of transport for under €10 including to El Prat airport. It makes a TfLOyster Card look like an annoying and confusing bit of expensive plastic. Certainly a hotel to consider again!
