“Cheap, clean and nice otel”
Reviewed 10 November 2011

Not far from the city center. 5-10 min walk to Metro. Hotel rooms cleaned every day. We had a double room. Our room was broad and bright. Rooms looking to street but there is no noice because double windows. There was a large and clean bathroom with double sink. Large LCD available in the room. But unfortunately all channels are in spanish. Minibar and safe are available. Safe box is not electronic and to use it, have to pay an extra fee. Throughout the hotel, there is free wireless internet, but it is not very good at the room, constantly interrupted. Breakfast 6 €, not very rich, but enough.

I recently stayed in this Hotel for 3 nights, and overall was not overly impressed.

I will start with the good points:

Location - brilliant. Plenty of shops & restaurants in the area. Short walk from the tour buses around the city (you can purchase your tickets from reception) and only a 10 / 15 minute walk from Nou Camp if you are there for the football.

The overal cleanliness of the Hotel was really good. Also, when we arrived my shower was broke, one phone call to Reception and it was fixed in a few hours.

The bad points:

The rooms were quite small and cramped.

When i arrived i was under the impression you could book excursions with reception. But the only excursion they offered where the sight seeing buses.

Breakfast at the hotel was 6euros were day, for a very basic breakfast. Just 10 meters from the hotel was a sandwich bar you could get a baguette, croissant and a coffee/ juice for only 2euros!! I would definently recomment exploring rather than settling for there breakfast. However, on the 1 morning i did have the breakfast at the hotel, it was pleasent and well stocked. Just a little basic.

The biggest problem i had with this hotel was the noise. I expected a little traffic noise as it is in a city. However, that wasn't a problem at all - even though my room was facing the main road. The biggest problem was the walls in the hotel being paper thin. There was noise from all rooms around you - which wasn't helped by very inconsiderate neighbours.
All day and night you could hear people talking on phones, alarm clocks, the tv, chairs scrapping across the tiles floors, doors slamming - which made the quality of sleep here very bad. On the 3 nights i was there, i would be suprised if i skept longer than 3/4 in 1 night.

If you are going for location only, and you're a heavy sleeper then this hotel is pleasent.

For this price you won't get much better. Exactly what you (..) would want in basics for a hotel: Clean everywhere, good bed in small but more than enough room (I think a hotel is mostly meant for sleeping, For the rest you want to work or visit the city you're in). 24 hrs Good entrance, I had my own computer which worked fine. If you want more than a very simple breakfast there are enough possibilities outside. Staff speaks english/spanish and some even other languages; Plus able to arrange car rental reservation, relaxed in/out checking.
Enjoy!

This is the second time we stayed at the Hotel Medium in Barcelona, Spain. It is clean, friendly, accomadating and quiet. It is well situated for the train station. There are resturants and shopping near as well as many coffee and fresh bread shops.

The beds are clean, comfortable and the bathroom is well accomodated. A lovely bath was had by my friend.

We had travelled all night on the train from Burgos and the clerk was kind enough, even though we came without a reservation and at about 8:00am., to clean a room for us and not charge us extra. We bathed, had quiet restful sleep and were refreshed for dinner and the city bus tour which was near the train station in a double decker bus. That evening we enjoyed restful sleep so we were refreshed for our flight the next morning to the USA.

The hotel clerk arranged for an English speaking taxi also who was so informative about all the different airports in Barcelona and realistically we would have most likely gone to the incorrect one if we had taken the bus ourselves. It was also nice to have a view of the town from the cab.

This is the hotel we will stay at if ever in Barcelona again. We prefer it. It also has internet access and breakfast.

Room Tip: clean marble floors and white linens give light and calmness to the rooms.

Smallest room I've ever seen.

Pros
- Very clean.
- Staff tries hard.

Cons
- Very internet however very spotty at best.
- Very bad location, expect to travel.
- Not that much variety in food in location, many restaurants, all the same options.
- Rooms are very, very small. They don’t get smaller than this.

This hotel is rather inconveniently located. Everything around the hotel appears to be closed all day everyday and the staff for the most part isn't too knowledgeable about the city or the English language (which is fine as it is Spain). There was one day staff person that was helpful, however. The rooms are very small and you cannot open the door completely. When you ask the housekeeping staff not to clean the room, they tend to do it anyway. They simply ignore the do not disturb sign on the door. I would not recommend this hotel as there are hotels more conveniently located for the same price and more ammenities.
