This could be the best location for a tourist. Just steps away from the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla and some more. The room was cleaned everyday and internet inside the room is decent. The room beside the street is a bit noisy though.

The location is fantastic in the centre of Las Rambla and close to the Boqueria (market).Check in is at the ridiculous time of 5.00pm. The rooms are very basic, small and dingy with just a wash basin. The beds are terrible and should have been thrown away years ago. The price was well over the top for what you get...

Considering how much we spent on our three night stay, we were hoping for something a little better. It was more expensive than a 4 star hotel we stayed at in Madrid! It was dark, old and not very comfortable. The bed had one long pillow rather than two for the bed which made it difficult to share with my...

Location cannot be better. Staff - helpful. Small but sufficient for one person. Clean. Well, voices and noices from neighbour rooms were easily audible, but luckily I had quiet neighbours. Good value for price.

We stayed there for 3 nights in a 2 bed room and we have nothing bad to say about the hotel. 1st.. I'd like to mention that the building is old and kind of narrow.. and that if you're looking for a fancy wide place and sth beyond basic, or if you have little children with you, I don't think...
