We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights after a transatlantic cruise. The hotel entrance is on the La Rambla, about 1/2 block from the top and a square that serves as a central meeting point for all sorts of buses. Two floors up, reachable by a small but adequate elevator, is the lobby and some rooms. There are additional... More

Excellent setting on the Ramblas for this hotel. Very friendly and efficient staff. Rooms quite small but do the job. They can be noisy at the front over the Ramblas but the price you pay for the balcony and the view with your free beer 24/7 at the bar. Ongoing buffet plastic rubbish generally but great tapas bar across the... More

We always make our reservations way ahead of time. We love to stay here and don't want to take a chance not getting a room.

Great location without question. Staff very good and friendly. Rooms clean. Some rooms are very tired and sound travels through the walls especially in the morning when the maids start work. Rooms at the back have very little natural light and are depressing. The buffet was very poor. Stayed 4 nights and the food was extremely limited. So long as... More

This hotel is not an ordinary hotel. It is Pink, odd layout, old carpet, and so so furniture. But what a FUN place to stay!
