We payed $100 for shared bathroom since it was only available during our stay then $110 a night for our own bathroom when it opened up. First of all, it is a little too far to walk to from the airport bus stop if you have luggage. If you take a cab from Plaza Catalonia it is 20 Euros plus luggage surcharge. Once you get there, it is a pain to get up the narrow stairs to the 3rd maybe 4th floor. Most of the staff maybe except for Ana and the guy who works the late afternoon/pre graveyard shift aren't very personable or friendly or helpful. They really seem to be hating their jobs, and are there just to clock in/for the paycheck. We saw 3 incidents where the staff were in disagreements with guests. The shard bathrooms are OK; for the most part clean but we did walk in a few times when it wasn't so or missing paper. We stayed 4 nights total. The room is tiny; smaller than a college dorm room. It looks a little more spacious in the pics so be prepared. You get a locked cubby to lock your stuff. Again it is basic. Best thing about the place is that it has lots of light and is fairy clean. Also once you are unpacked and start exploring, it is centrally located. I don't think I will be coming back and don't recommend. Been there, and it wasn't as expected, a let down. Room becomes non-refundable a few weeks before scheduled, so keep that in mind. I had no option of trying a different hotel.
