“Location & Value”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

Booked 5 nights here and recently returned... For the money you cannot top this place. The rooms are commodious (again, for the money) and included a mini fridge. The only faults I would cite are that the room was hot and we couldn't open the window b/c of the street noise (which is 100% blocked out when the windows are closed) and the matresses a bit on the hard side. The staff was friendly and I felt very secure as they had a guard on duty after 11 pm in addition to the front desk buzzing you in, etc. I never ever felt that security was an issue. The location, as others have cited, is ideal and right around the corner from the Boqueria which made access to quality, inexpensive snacks (fruits and the like) easy. The metro system in BCN is also very modern and efficient and puts NY's to shame (which most do... sadly). I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for an economical hotel without sacrificing on space, cleanliness, and location.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June. While the location is very very good, and is minutes from everything, and the rooms are great, clean, modern etc... the service is poor. This was a major let down, but something tells me this could be a cultural thing as i did not find the people in Barcelona to be that friendly, compared to other cultures I have experienced.

The front desk people never smile. When asked questions or advice its like they can not be bothered helping. Just seemed like they did not want to be there working. I think management should have better standards and lift their game, after all this is a service industry! One time I came out of the lift, said good morning, and the guy at the desk nodded his head at me - pretty poor form.

We just returned from a two night stay during the year-end holiday. The location is very convenient next to the old quarter and the nightly "action" on the Ramblas avenue. The action here unfortunately has double meaning: the first night as I was returning to the hotel two North African men tried to mug me right at the entrance to the hotel. I managed to escape inside and asked the hotel personnel to alert the police which they did. Nobody seemed to care much, however, and the hotel staff actually seemed used to these thugs hovering around the hotel prying for victims.
Aside of this, the room we got was thoroughly dirty with what seemed like dust from construction. The staff was only able to clean it the next day. Given the high price and all this trouble and risk, next time we will go to a different hotel in this wonderful city.

Room Tip: Find a different hotel not on the Ramblas and stay safe.

Just got home from a 3 night stay here. Our room had a great ambiance, the hotel was perfectly positioned and it was a great base for exploring the city. Pretty much everything was in walking distance from the hotel and the staff were very helpful on the front desk. The maids came every day and replenished towels, bedding and toiletries. The hotel check out time is 12pm , we ran slightly late but reception only called at 12.30pm to remind us which was nice. no complaints about this hotel, we loved it and it looks exactly as it does on the pictures!

Great hotel, located right off the center of the Ramblas. It's just one block from the subway line and right in the center of the Ramblas. The hotel was very clean and very secure. There was a camera security check before you could even open the door to get into the hotel. The rooms were very clean, included a mini-fridge and had an excellent a/c and heating system. The only downside was that the rooms were on the smaller side - which is typical in this area.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor if you want something quieter.
