Front desk lady Zoya and kitchen lady Precy were outstanding. All the rest of the staff, sadly..... disappointing. They should hire somebody to takeover Zoya who are capable of communicating in english. Tourists often ask questions regarding transportation, attractions, dining and etc...front staff should be ready to answers those questions with ease. All the rest of the ammenities...well it's the one of the cheapest one i saw with the best access to everything, so don't expect five star accomodations, remember you're just there to have a place to store your belongings and a place to shower and sleep at. That's it.

- location: very centrally located hotel for tourists - close to La Rambla, Barri Gotic, Placa Catalunya, etc.
- Check-in: very quick and efficient
- Room: room is the usual modern-style hotel rooms that you find in any big global metropolitan city, ie., "small-ish" compared to those of the American-chain hotels, but very clean and well appointed as most of this kind of hotels are (no wasted space).
- Breakfast: included in the price and very reasonable
- This is located on a side-street of La Rambla, and hence could get noisy, up to the early hours of the morning, and with insulation not very effective, could be uncomfortable for light-sleepers.

I like this hotel and will go again. its conveniently 200m from Liceu metro and 10 mins walk from the Airport bus stop at Placa Catalunya. You can walk to most of central Barcelona tourist attractions from the hotel.
I know this place wont be to everyone's taste. It's a converted monastery and the rooms were originally the monks cells, so they are not massive or lavishly appointed. They are clean, and have a shower or bath ensuite.
Downside, no tea/coffee making facility for guests, but then you have bakeries, supermarkets and tapas bars within a few doors where you can get a drink for a Euro or two.
Staff were very friendly and helpful. The central courtyard is a nice place to sit.
There are some great places to eat and drink in the surrounding streets, and this side of the Ramblas around Raval area is a bit less touristy (and less pricey) than the Barri Gothic. Check out Ramblas Raval and the streets north and west of the hotel for decent nearby bars/restaurants.
