The place is easy to find and situated in a nice neighbourhood close to the city center but away from the crouds - about 20 mins on foot to pl. Espanya and the singing fountains of Montjuïc and a couple of subway stations to the port (or about an hour on foot). The neighbourhood felt safe and there are a...

Nice and clean friendly staff who speak English and a roof top terrace to chill. Th e view is nothing its all about the company. A lift to the roof is an added benefit. Breakfast is provided, not included but there are plenty of bars in thhe locality.

Good Hotel near Sants railway station, 8-10 mins walk, a little difficult to find, area a little run down. Never felt uncomfortable. Room very comfortable, staff friendly and helpful. Easy access to metro. Did not have the breakfast so cannot comment.

We stayed overnight on our way from Spain to Nice by train. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the room although not large was spotless and comfortable. A short walk to shops and restaurants. Very reasonably priced accommodation which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. As we had to leave early I could not comment on the breakfast.

The location is perfect, the rooms are clean and the beds are nice and soft. The metro station is just around the corner where metro line 1 brings you directly to the city center. We left everyday pretty late in the morning and every time we came back the room was cleaned and looked nice. The patio is small but...

We stayed for 3 nights and had a great experience. For the price we pay, we can't complain. Rooms were small but very clean and towels get changed every day. Better than many 4* hotels we stayed before. For the improvement: Tea/coffee facility in the room would be good. There wasn't a space but a small fridge felt essential. I...

We stayed here for two nights after coming in on the train before flying out from Barcelona. Situated in a funky, local neighborhood and not even a 5 minute walk to Placa de Sants Metro station (conveniently on the red line).

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this hotel, just for a quick stopover before travelling further south the next day. So all we really needed was a bed and a bathroom - and we got just that! The room was a decent size, clean and quiet with a comfy bed and a very good shower. Nice to have...

Small room, budget price, very clean and comfortable. Bed may be a bit hard for some, but not a real issue for me. Helpful pleasant staff. Coffee maker in lobby which was nice, didn't do breakfast so can't comment. Easy ten minute walk from Sants train station. Neighborhood was fine, but hotel is not real close to major sights. We...
