A pleasant place to stay
Posted Jul 11, 2015
Stayed at this Hotel at the end of June 2015.
The hotel is clean and quiet. Room I had was quite small but was adequate for my needs (somewhere to sleep and wash whilst spending most of the day exploring Barcelona). Amenities included air conditioning (free), a mini-bar fridge, free WiFi and a TV with English news channels.
Staff on reception were very helpful on recommending places to see and go in Barcelona and they can even offer a small discount on a range of attractions. They were always happy to answer any questions.
The location of the hotel is a fair distance from the City Centre but it is very close to Sants Estacio Metro station (about a 5-10 minute walk) and Barcelona does have an excellent, efficient, Metro system. It also means getting to the hotel from the Airport is easy as the train from the Airport goes straight to Sants. Travelling time to La Rambla from Sants is roughly 10-15minutes so not too bad.
There are a few supermarkets around the hotel which means getting supplies of snacks and water is easy but I found there is not a great range of Restaurants and found myself having to go further afield to eat.
If shopping is your thing there is a large shopping centre about 10 minutes away on foot that has a wide variety of shops.
All in all I found it to be an pleasant place to stay for the price and enjoyed my time in Barcelona.
