Clean and convenient hotel

Posted Oct 20, 2016
Pros: The staff were very helpful (Especially the young lady with the red hair). Most of the staff members speak English fairly well so it was easy to communicate. As for the location, its proximity to the metro, tour meet up locations, and Barcelona quarters (easy access via metro) makes it very convenient. In addition, the room (sheets, floor, bathroom, etc) was fairly clean.
Cons: The two things that we didn't like about the room were the beds and shower. We had two double beds pushed together to form a bigger bed (which is fine). However, one of the beds had a loose wheel so it was easy to move around. The beds were not that comfortable and the square pillows were awkward to use. The shower needed more water pressure and sometimes the shower did not turn on after pressing the button. I had to wait for a few minutes and try pressing the button again before the shower turned on.

Good location

Posted Jun 24, 2016
Small *** hotel with excellent staff. It's two buildings combined into one with elevators. As European hotel rooms are small, these rooms are decent in size and clean. Location is walking distance to most of the districts and museums. Breakfast at 30 euros day is steep and not a great value if it's not included in your room rate

Location excellent

Posted May 6, 2016
Pros: The staff were extremely helpful and pleasant.
Cons: More choice in the cooked breakfast range and not so many "chocolate" pastries.
Location: Use the Aerobus to and from airport instead of taxis. Only 5 mins walk to hotel from bus stop.
Nice and quiet of an evening although everything on the doorstep. Would definitely go back to this hotel again. 5 minutes walk and you were at the metro or tourist buses or ordinary buses. Bus runs directly to airport as well.

great location - decent accommodations

Posted Mar 28, 2016
Pros: Location
Cons: There was a strong "septic tank" odor in the main lobby on the first visit. Apparently they had a problem with one of the units.
Location: La Ramblas, Placa Catunyia were walking distance
Loved the location of this hotel, and the price was certainly right for what you get. We booked this hotel for both a pre- and a post-cruise stay. Pre-cruise we booked standard accommodations and post-cruise we booked a superior room. There was a HUGE difference between the two rooms and if booking again in the future I would definitely book a superior room. The standard room was very small which is normal for Europe but comfortable enough if all you want is a comfortable bed to sleep in. The superior room was a suite with loads of room. However, it was more difficult to get to as it was in the "Gravina II" building which means you will need to go through multiple elevators and corridors to get to it. Well worth it if you don't mind the inconvenience.

Staff were extremely helpful with directions and providing information. Some rooms are very small but clean and do the job well enough. Good location and close to the metro, shopping, dinning and attractions.

Friendly hotel in an excellent location

Posted Feb 8, 2016
The hotel staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. On check in we were given a glass of cava and supplied with maps and given helpful advise about the city by the receptionist. The room was spotlessly clean and spacious with a bottle of cava in an ice bucket was in the room on arrival. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of hot and cold buffet each morning. The location just along from The ramblers and place Catalunya was excellent being close to the centre but nice and quiet. The staff could not have been more helpful during our stay and I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
