If you haven't figured it out we love the location. It was the second time we stayed at this immaculate Boutique Hotel located in the El Born district of Barcelona. It is around the corner from the Picasso museum and one block away from the wonderful Montiel Restaurant. La Ramblas is a 10 minute walk and the Metro stop is a block away. You can amble through the District for days and choose from hundreds of Tapas Bars. The staff was wonderful and we will definitely be back for another visit.

Stayed April 2012

My Fiance and i stayed at the hotel on Easter Weekend. On arrival at the hotel the Front Desk staff were so helpful and friendly and gave us lots of great information about the hotel and its services. We arrived at 10.30 to be swiftly given our room to our delight as check in is normally 3pm. The room was basic but with great decor and very clean. The show was a great size and always warm. The Services the hotel provided were second to none and never seemed to much trouble. We asked the Front desk staff on a number of occasion about how to get to places and what they recommended, they spent time and effort showing us maps and drawing us diagrams. The hotel is in an exellent location, right in the heart of everything, We walked everywhere as everything was in walking distant. The roof top terrace is cute and gives you a great view. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to visit barcelona on a budget. Its exellent and well worth the £190 for two nights price tag. We will be staying again im sure :0)

Excellent hotel located in the Gothic Quarter, very near the main attractions of this district. Also close to the Ramblas and Parc de la Ciutadella.

The room has a good size and it is clean and comfortable. The bathroom is excellent.

The breakfast at the hotel is excellent, but is not included in the room rate.

It has free wi-fi and mineral water, in a cooler outside the room, in the hallway.

The staff are courteous and helpful.

This hotel is located on a pedestrian street so there's no traffic noise. It's busy with tourist traffic so there is the occasional street noise late at night - but overall - tranquilo. It has a very contemporary, modern, spare look - very comfortable with a great bathroom.

Biggest plus for us: the terrace upstairs which has a little splash pool - you can't do laps but it's lovely to sit around while you're resting your feet for the next outing.
The thing we did not like: absence of drawer space. Seems like they could have ordered furniture with some better storage.

The front desk was always congenial and helpful.
