This is no frills hotel, very simple and clean. It's a perfect location at the centre of Barcelona. If you are looking for a base from which to explore the city look no further. Very clean and wi-fi works well. Skip the breakfast though, the restaurant next offers better one.

Turned up at hotel 7pm with wife and was greeted by a very nice gentleman that spoke excellent English, he gave us room card and details of where to find it. I enquired about getting some drinking water and he directed me next door to 24 hour supermarket. We had twin beds pushed together which were clean and very comfortable,... More

The room was so small everytime I opened my suitcase I had to close it so we could lay on the bed since there was no way you could open it on the floor. The bathroom was super tight and hard to use. Also not friendly for disabled individuals. There is a lift... But then there are also stairs you... More

My husband and I stayed at the hotel from Sept 6-13, 2016. We chose this hotel based on location, the three star rating and pictures. The last two left a lot to be desired. I would not give this hotel three stars. I think two stars would be more accurate. I had read reviews before booking and, based on noise... More

I visit Barcelona once a year and i try to stay at different hotels but this place has been the biggest mistake.

Barcelona is a very expensive city to stay in, so we chose this hotel as it was well placed and relatively cheap. The rooms are very small, and the furniture is a bit dated. It's spotlessly clean, the staff are helpful and the free breakfast was plentiful and well presented. There's an outside dining area for breakfast which is nice.... More

It was in a great location but for the price this was very average indeed. The room was small and dated and had a view only of other guests windows only 4m away. The only other bonuses were the very helpful staff and the excellent air con in our room which have made me up the score to average.

The room was VERY small and noisy. There is a loud rumbling sound every so often as the metro/subway rumbles underneath (and we were on the 5th floor...). You can also hear lots of street noise. The small room was clean as was the bathroom. The towels and room amenities were fine - free coffee / tea with a hot... More

It is not cheap hotel, compared to others with same 3 stars classification, but the very great location in middle of the center of Barcelona, very near to Cataluniya square and great easy access to different metro lines from different near metro stations, makes the hotel very worthy to pay for it....

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
