Good location, but not quite 3-star
Posted Jul 10, 2016
Location is very convenient, though maybe a little surprising for US travelers to stay in such crowded and urban neighborhood with clothing hanging outside of windows. We felt a little unease at first due to the dirty and narrow alleys, but was assured the neighborhood was "typical of Barcelona". We felt in love with the many tiny stores opening up at late afternoon and night, as the neighborhood came to life. Hotel itself is an apartment in fact. Good size, but could use some better maintenance. There was no soap or shampoo. Shower had extremely poor drainage. Mattress was way to soft. A/C was good, however. TV was small, but good HD programming. We don't speak Spanish anyway - just used it to watch Euro Cup.
Overall, I don't feel it's 3-star, but more like 2.5 star. It could easily be 3.5 star if it was maintained a little better.
