OK but location not the best
Posted Jul 4, 2013
I trusted the people saying that the location was fine. It really isn't very convenient. I stayed in 4 different locations in Barcelona over a month and this, to me, was the worst. The building is located too far up the hill. It is close to Tibidabo and close enough to Park Guell but, it is quite a distance to the water and very far from the beaches. There is a Metro stop nearby so you can get around easy enough but there really isn't too much in the area; actually not much at all. I like the exercise of walking and would walk 10 miles a day and more, so I was OK but, unless you plan on walking, getting a taxi, taking the metro (3 blocks away), or figuring out the bus system, you will feel like you're in a suburb but remember, it's only a 3-4 mile walk or so to La Rambla so it's doable. The building itself is OK. It's showing age as are the rooms but they are very large, more like a 1 bedroom apartment. The front desk persons are all very helpful and kind. There is a very large grocery store within two blocks just around the corner from the building so that is a HUGE plus. Not many choices to eat or drink in the area.
