Bare basics hotel in pretty good location.

Posted Sep 12, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Bathroom needed some maintenance.
Location: Was right near regional and metro train station and a quick walk to the beach and plenty of good restaurants.
The hotel room was very tiny and old but got the job done.

Location is good, hotel as such, not really

Posted Aug 5, 2014
The hotel's location is really good, but the rooms are really small, the cleanliness is barely alright, it's not a comfortable hotel.

Well situated hotel

Posted Jun 13, 2014
Pros: Cleanliness, friendliness and location.
Cons: A larger room would have been nice - but we accept that this is beyond their control.
Location: Good location. Near metro. Good restaurants nearby. Close to Barcelona Zoo. WIthin walking distance (15-20 mins) of La Rambla.
We received a very warm and friendly on our arrival. This friendliness was maintained throughout our visit. The room was very small, as was the bathroom. But both were very clean indeed. We had been allocated a twin room, but the staff were happy to switch us to a double on request. We did not eat in the hotel, but preferred to find out own food out and about. The location is great. Close to the metro and within walking distance of La Rambla and the gothic area around the Cathedral. Some previous reviews are, in our opinion, misleading. If you book at two star hotel, you can't expect five star accommodation and treatment. To those who said the staff were not friendly, we wonder what their approach was to the staff? We found the exact opposite.

Great location, friendly staff, clean but basic.

Posted Feb 15, 2014
Good location, ten minutes walk from the beach and Ramblas. Near to gothic quarter and 15 -20 mins walk to central shops and restaurants. Hotel was very clean, staff were friendly and helpful even when I locked my key in my room! Room is very small and basic (no iron, kettle etc) but we had a little balcony which was nice. Wouldn't recommend this room to anyone with a lot of luggage or for using for anything else but sleeping etc due to the size and lack of space to store things. Would stay here again as it was clean & good location, nice staff and we spent most of our time out exploring so the size wasn't a major issue.

very near train station

Posted Oct 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
This is an okay hotel. Furnishings need updating and rooms are small. AC was good and room was generally clean. The best thing about this hotel was the convenience to the Franca train station and the price. The price was not exactly cheap but was very reasonable for Barcelona, where we found lodging was very expensive. The clerk was helpful when asked, but was somewhat short and curt with answers. To get to the hotel go right out the front of the train station, to about a half a block go right down the street for just over a block and the hotel will be on your right.

Pleasantly surprized

Posted Oct 12, 2013
Pros: A walk from Rome's train Termini, city central bus terminal, airport shuttle (6 euros per, 40 mins to FCO) sight seeing busses, Metro, taxies...Secure
Cons: Lots of fresh air, but our room will need air conditioner (extra cost) in summer. Elevator small but floors accessible by stairs too.
Location: Not much. Used the sightseeing bus to get to major sights..
Registration was easy and 'Lori' was most helpful. No problem with a late cancellation and re-registration - our change of plans. Lots of homeless (non- threating several blocks away). Good secure feeling. Get your shower early (with most rooms occupied hot water changed to tepid by 9 am). Desk clerks were friendly and helpful. Took credit card.

cheap and clean, nothing fancy

Posted Sep 30, 2013 on Hotels.com
Convenient location, but very small and old. Room was clean, but the hotel needs some updating. Right next to train station and had elevator. Small rooms, and even smaller bathrooms on a noisy street. Air conditioner worked well. Breakfast was not worth the price, did a nearby bakery instead. Good idea if you are looking for a cheap hotel for a one night stay. Front desk was nice and helpful, spoke English.

3 night stopover in Barcelona

Posted Sep 7, 2013
The room was exceptionally small, horrible smell from the bathroom - noticed same smell in some areas of the 'old town'- may not be the hotel's fault. Positives were the location, variety of restaurants nearby and access to all parts of Barcelona.

Would I stay here again!

Posted Aug 10, 2013
Pros: A good cup of coffee in bar
Cons: Thin walls, rooms need some tlc.
Location: Location is about 10 minutes walk from Las Ramblas and close to marina
Normally I wouldn't write a comment about a hotel but felt I had to on this occasion. Room : air conditioning very noisy and controls too high to reach so had to turn it off at night to sleep. Mattresses could do with changing or turning around as it sank down to one side. Bathroom. No plug in sink. Toilet seat and lid was just about held on with a course of screws. I have never known walls so thin, I could hear every word that next door was saying loud and clear and when the cleaners were in the rooms you knew exactly what they were doing. Could do with having tea and coffee making facilities in room although there was a vending machine two floors down. My daughter had a room as well which was a tiny double. She asked to be moved as air con was so loud but no rooms available and front desk staff said they would get it sorted out. Don't think it was as it was just as bad. Staff need to be a bit more friendly and helpful. When my daughter asked about a book that she had left in the room it seemed to cause a big problem for them to go and find it/fetch it from where it had been put! Had a nice cup of coffee in bar and if you don't mind the above location is pretty good but for the price I would have expected better - I have stayed in a number if hotels throughout Spain and I'm sorry but this one is not up to scratch
