Great location (sort of)
Posted Aug 14, 2016
I was amazed to get a room with such a central location on La Rambla at a decent price. Not fancy, but not bad - great base for exploring Barcelona.
On the other hand, if you're walking around there past midnight, get ready to fend off tons of drug dealers, prostitutes, thieves, and dudes trying to sell you beer, mixed with crowds of young people out to have a good time. Not necessarily bad, but that's the scene. Police are around, but they are there only to stop violence. I got pick-pocketed (iPhone stolen!) within 2 hours. Police were useless. Don't let anyone touch you! So, I have only good things to say about the hotel, but Barcelona... not so much.
