    Good

    This hotel is very well located and we found it very clean. We were finishing a cruise and it is only a 15 minute taxi ride from the port. It is on a main city street and across the street from the large botanical gardens and park. The walk to La Rambla is only about 10 minutes and about a 20 minute walk to Catlunya Plaza. It is about a 20 - 30 minute taxi ride to the airport.

    This hotel is a good value but is spartan very much like a college dorm room. The reception staff were fair to poor. The person working in the morning did try to help but the person working the evening was rude and did not want to be bothered using the excuse that we were only staying one night. Noisy.

    It was walking distant from Nordo bus station, Piccaso musium etc. This place was very clean.

    there was vending machine which provides hot water for 1 euro for only 2~3 onces. this is rediculous!!!!

    excellent location downtown next to park, clean bathroom.

    small rooms, not clean under beds, no breakfast, no fridge, no view from the window, although i had booked a superior twin room it was not available when i got there...and i was not informed about that earlier...

    Fabulous

    The location is excellent, central but not too much so there are no big noisy crowds late at night. The hotel itself is newly restored and decorated. The bathroom has a tub instead of just a shower which is also a nice change. The view is marvellous - the front of the hotel opens up to Parc de la Ciutadella and it catches the sunrise beautifully.

    Staff seemed to be a bit incompetent at times. Just as we arrived to check in, there were 2 guys having a problem with their booking - they had a single instead of a twin room. The receptionist's english was very lacking so communication was difficult.I had booked a twin room - with 2 single beds. Instead we were told we could only stay in a double room, with a double bed. This wasn't too much of a problem so we took the room but it shows that you might want to contact the hotel after booking, just to double check. Also, take ear plugs. Rooms around the reception area can get really noisome at night with people coming in and out at all hours, talking quite loudly.

    Superb

    the hotel is located in one flour only from the building. that doesn't give you the best impression when you find it. Nevertheless when you reach the reception and the show you the rooms you will change your mind. Excellent for me!

    The design and location were good

    When we asked simple questions the hotel stuff (the woman on reception in the morning time) was very rude!!!! U can say no but say it politely please! And the room service (bath towels change and other) was very rare! We stayed for 11 nights and they never changed our bed sets! So it depends would I reccomend or not this hotel!

    Very good

    It is an economy hotel in a convenient part of town. For what it's worth, it's not bad.

    I realize that it's a basic hotel, but I didn't think a superior double room would be so small. It barely had room to walk around the double bed. The room could also have been cleaner. The maid had sprayed cleaner on the bathroom floor and never wiped it off! I almost slipped and fell because of it. The receptionist barely understood anything other than Spanish. There was hardly any ac in the room. The receptionist also demanded that we leave the room key with her whenever we left the hotel. I never had to do that in any hotel before, so I felt that it's a strange practice.

    Good

    The hotel was situated in a lovely part of the city opposite the zoological gardens and 5 minutes walk from the beach & Marina, which was beautiful during the nice weather. Great for strolling and relaxing. Also right in the heart of the Boro / gothic centre with hundreds of little boutique shops and restaurants, old churches & buildings, fantastic variation to choose from.

    The hotel was exactly what we expected, basic, small and very clean. Room 20 in which we stayed needs to be brighter, painted dark blue can be a bit depressing, lighten it up, brighter colours and it would feel better. No services ie food, entertainment etc: but staff were very pleasant and courteous at all times day & night. Next door to the hotel was an old roman spa which was fantastic, a must see and use, great for relaxing. i woill definatly go back again, i know what to expect. Area where hotel is based is ideal.

    Exceptional

    This is one of the few hotels I know with a comfortable bed! So if the goal of your stay is to get a good night sleep, choose this one. In addition your get a very nice designed hotel with great staff, in a perfect location for a citytrip. Extra's are the amazing the bathhouse next door (which I tried), the sweet little chocolate museum almost around the corner, very nice boutique shops in Carrer de la Princessa (including an organic bakery), the park, 500m from Museu Picasso, ... This is Barcelona at it's best. O, I almost forgot the very good daily cleaning service. The lady even took time to put the exploded daughter suitcase aside in a non-intrusive way.

    I feel sorry for the hotel that paint & walls have some minor damages. This did not bother me at all, but I would have liked to have seen this area as perfect as the rest of the hotel. Really don't worry about at all, the rooms are clean & nice.

    Good location. The room was clean and comfortable size for our 5 days stay.

    We stayed in the room 22. We heard big noise from upstairs; at 7 am by hotel staff and late evening by the people upstairs. It is a pity that the hotel does not offer breakfast. There was two vending machine, one for hot drinks and another for snacks.

    Excellent location in El Born to visit the city by food and around 400mt far from the Metro. Good value, basic but clean rooms, nice staff.

    There isn't breakfast service and the places in the neighbourhood are very expensive.
