Great Views and Great Location on La RamblasPosted Sep 18, 2014
Pros: Location Location Location! The balcony overlooking La Ramblas was worth everything. Also, good windows so noise outside was not an issue when asleep
Cons: Walls were scarred where furniture was moved and slid agains the wall. Made the room seem dumpy and tired. New paint and the room would seem like a 3*
Location: Walk La Ramblas. Wander the narrow and winding streets of Barri Gotic. Take the hop-on hop-off bus tour. Eat tapas and have sangria de cava.
First time in Spain and we had to have a view. The reason we chose this hotel was the availability of balconies overlooking La Rambas. What a great choice we made! The views were spectacular and we were right in the middle of it all! The hotel is centrally located on La Ramblas between Christobal Colom park and Plaça de Catalunya. Also just a few steps away from El Barri Gotic (Gothic quarter). We never used any public transportation to get around, just our own feet! You're also about a 5-10 minute walk from La Boqueria, a large market with tons of food stalls. We did not purchase breakfast at the hotel. It was 13 Euro/day/person, but if you paid for all days upfront it went down to 9 Euro/day/person. There were so many other options available that we just decided to eat out every day instead of having breakfast there. THe number of bars and restaurants within walking distance is AMAZING. Those located on La Ramblas tend to be touristy and overpriced (We were charged 22 Euro for a single sangria one night), so be aware. Look at menus and ask prices because you will be gouged. But don't settle for La Ramblas. Go a few streets away and you'll find awesome little bars and restaurants with great prices and, as always, absolutely inattentive and surly service. The only negative was that the room was rather dumpy and small. Small is European, but a new coat of paint would really make the room seem much nicer.

Very central, middle of Las Ramblas!Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The welcome from the young man in reception was warm and friendly, hotel clean.
Cons: Inform customers that they will have a viewless, airless room. Get tea and coffee facilities. Replace the safes as the buttons had worn off!
Location: The tourist buses are good value for 2 days, but don't do the blue route (the red buses) as it takes 2 hours! You only see Gaudi's church!
Our party (3 women) chose this hotel on a recommendation from a work colleague due to its central location, right on the popular Las Ramblas. However, our excitement was somewhat curtailed when we opened the 2 sets of curtains in the room, (117) to find thick plastic sheeting covering the scaffolding outside our balconies. During our time, we did not see one single workman!! The doors were locked, so basically, no view, just billowing plastic, no view of the Las Ramblas and no fresh air. When we asked 'Natalia' on reception if we could change, we were curtly told that the Hotel was full and to ask again tomorrow. As we were only on a 3 day break, we did not bother asking the next day as we only had one more night in our viewless and airless room. No tea or coffee facilities and despite the room being for 3 people, only 2 sets of shampoo, toiletries etc and only 2 glasses!

Nice clean hotelPosted Sep 13, 2014
Perfect place to stay, right on the doorstep to Las Ramblas, basic but clean and did the job for 3 nights stay. Not a great view from room but we didn't go to Barcelona to sit in a room!

Barcelona short breakPosted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: The hotel was friendly and pleasant for the short time we where in it. When requesting another room in quiet location they where very helpful .
Cons: I requested on the "Experia additional request" when booking to have a quiet room on high floor. The hotel where never given our additional requests.
Location: Everything is around you at this location. We walked but you may prefer to catch a tube or get on the tour buses.
Ideal central location for exploring Barcelona. Lovely city with plenty to explore. Most memorable time particulaly the singing and dancing fountain display in the evening.

Too noisy at night.Posted Sep 10, 2014
Cons: Better sound proof on walls & windows
Location: Location is excellent, many restaurants close by.
This hotel is right on Las Rumblas, we did not know that Rumblas is busy almost 24-7. We picked a room facing the Rumblas, which was a mistake, the hotel was under renovation, and we could not go onto the baloney. At nights, it was noisy and people were partying all night long, making having a quiet sleep impossible.

Convenient hotel, close to La Rambla and transportPosted Sep 10, 2014
Nice hotel in relation to most in Barcelona. In general the room was basic but was very clean. Hotel staff were very friendly and gave good advice e.g for places to eat. The room contained a secure safe for valuables, however did not have a kettle or iron. Laundry services available through hotel, however were costly.
