“Descent location but poor hotel”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

I stayed in this hotel in February 2012 and its best quality is it's location. It's in easy distance of the shops, restaurants and transport. However, the photos of this hotel are flattering. The rooms are not spacious or brilliantly lite. The bathroom could do with a good make over especially as the ceiling showed signs of damp penetration and the tiling looked old and knackered. The bedroom was very draughty and the floor felt and looked a little grimy. The staff were friendly enough but, the quality of the service could be improved considerably particularly in the dining area. Breakfast in general was OK.

Room Tip: If you are unhappy with your room ask to get it changed.

Found hotel nice and in a great location was really concerned as I'd read all negative comments before we left and was preparing myself for it. But was very happy the rooms were big and clean didn't have a view from the window but wasn't in Barcelona to do that!! Only one fault was the breakfast we ate at a local cafe as I didn't enjoy the hotels.... Overall happy with my stay, not sure what all the fuss was about!!

I stayed in this hotel whilst on business but will not be using it again. that sounds bad but its just not a good hotel for business travellers. It has no internet connection and the TV is only Spanish channels. The room had no visible aircon either though I am sure there was some system in place. A room facility guide would have been helpful.

After all that, the hotel was very clean and the rooms quite well presented. The bathrooms had no wear and tear either. If I was looking for a more economical hotel as a base for visiting Barcelona then this would tick a lot of the boxes. Its well situated and comfortable.

One small criticism, the breakfast and especially the coffee in the morning is dreadful but there is a Starbucks which opens at 7:30am nearby, also has 45 minutes of free wifi!

Room Tip: Internal rooms were quiet

As everyone says the location is great, at the city center near the metro.
However, the room is very small, no view, dark and the toilets door didn't close properly.
The breakfast is the same every day (we stayed for one week as a part of package deal).
Above all there is no WiFi at the rooms and the WiFi at the lobby cost 12 Euros per day!!!!
There are plenty hotels at this location, I would advise to choose other hotel.

Excellent location, but rooms dark & dismal, not worth the money. Extra bed for child just pushed into what was already a small room, we had to climb over it to get to the bathroom!. Breakfast simple but sufficient.
Air conditioning not working when we arrived, temperature was 30 degrees, took three attempts , still wasn't functioning properly when we left .Asked to be moved to another room, was told it was full.
Don't be fooled with pictures of bar, didn't open once while we was there, when we asked for a drink we were told, "sorry no staff will not open tonight" that happened every night.
If you can book else where we would strongly recommend you do!!!

Contrary to what others have wrote we found the hotel clean & efficient, the breakfast plentiful-toast,croissants,yoghurt,cereals,juice,cheese,ham,sausages,bacon,hard boiled eggs,cold meats etc etc-although served a little early for our two teenagers (7.00am-10.30am) and the staff very helpful. The location next to the cathedral in the Barri Gothic is excellent, the tourist information office is at one end of the street (Place de Jaume) & the metro at the other. It is noisy but that is what I would expect from a vibrant city centre. I would recommend it..

There was some sort of problem with "water" - the guy in the reseption didn't speak English well - and we had to change to another hotel. The change was taken care of smoothly. The hotel is in excellent location but didn't look like that nice other wise.
