I agree with Susan D. Reviewed on Yelp. I booked this hotel using the Booking app. The room is nice for the area. But no refrigerator. I suppose the manned desk provides some security, if I choose to look at it that way. But not really sure what I think about that. I wouldn't recommend it.

I stayed here recently with my 6 year old son I wasn't too sure what to make of it with a lot of negative feedback. Basically it's basic accommodation! The location is fantastic it's right beside la ramblas and just across from the marina and shopping center ! The place itself is lovely it's an old original building has all...

I'm not sure where to start, it was so bad that I felt like I was in a movie - it was old and apparently never renovated, it was really cold (especially in the bathroom), the bathroom itself was a nightmare - it was impossible to take a shower without making a lake on the floor (it was not a...

The only issue i have is that the toilet door is pretty hard to close. Can hear outside and sounds from next door but still ok with it.i like that they provide drinking water. Even for hotels they only give u 2 bottles of water but here u can just keep refilling.

Excellent location, close to the Rambles and sea front. This is a very basic hotel, but is very clean, it is an old building so there will be an odd thing, but for what we wanted it was perfect. Shower, toilet , safe and a bed.

Having read other reviews I can only assume that others pay low prices yet expect 5* standards. The location was perfect and we found the two male receptionists helpful and friendly. Room 301 was requested and that's exactly what we got. Traditional shutters opening into the street and quirky design features. Air conditioning was included in the price. This room...

Our room was a superior double. It was clean and tidy; great location near sea/ Las Rambla/ metro; adequate size but not spacious; everything we needed - towels, soap, body wash; felt safe and staff were friendly. The only down side was on Saturday night when the noise in the street went on much of the night.

Nightmare. This pension is a deception! The photos are kind of fake. We booked the "superior" room, but it was not even similar as the photos. It was dirty, noisy, stinky. And even we were cold. and... we asked to make up our bed, they did not even changed the sheet.... watch out, it is a huge disappointment!!

This place is a joke! There is a safe in the rooms but they MAKE you hand in your room key whenever you go out, so you have to come back and ask for it - and one of the guys is so rude & makes you feel like an inconvenience. I do not care how cheap or close to...

Rooms not entirely as expected but whilst they were small and basic, they offered up a comfortable sleep and were clean. The walls are quite thin though and was easy to get woken up by early risers or late night revellers. Cleaning staff friendly enough, reception staff didn't seem too interested but there were no issues. Location was just off...
