Great location, passionate staff

the location is perfect for exploring the gothic quarter. Lives up to its name in vibe and staff character. Great value for money.
its a great little boutique hotel with very clean rooms, fun and friendly staff and comfortable amenities. It fits perfectly in the area adding to the atmosphere. Best place to stay in the Gothic quarter.

location, amazing staff, free water / hot drinks (+soya)
easy to find main hotel for check-in from arc di triomph metro, just to the right of beautiful citadela park, zoo hotel one minute walk from there. clean and spacious room, huge double bed and lots of storage, small tv, great shower/ large bath, little sofa area by the reception area with hot drink selection, espresso machine and fridge full of water, milk and soya. easy walking distance to everywhere! and plenty of places to eat / drink very close. they serve a fair breakfast at main hotel ( buffet €9- croissant and coffee €2.50) and went to get us gluten free bread :) all the staff we met were lovely, friendly, relaxed..nothing was too much trouble. blue project raw vegan/ gluten free cafe across road was definitely not the budget accomodation we were expecting, we loved it and will return! thanks C&B! x

A short stay

Location centrally locattedbut in quiet neighborhood and with a balconny to have breakfast
Short stay, but enough to get a taste of the city. The hotel was clean and well equipped. The room was large enough and no need to jump over the be to access the bathroom, like in many hotel. The room had a balcony with a small table and chairs to take a coffee in the morning. Th balcony had a view on a large avenue and the Zoological garden. It was very quiet and the staff was helpful to order taxi and give direction during our stay. I liked it.

Great location and friendly staff.

Location, clean and secure.
The hotel is located close to many tourist attractions. It is easy to travel by bus. Although there is no restaurant in the hotel, there are many at short walking distance. The hotel provides water, coffee and tea. The room was clean, comfortable a little bit small. The mattress of the bed was a little bit soft. Shower and toilet were very adequate. We felt very safe and the staff was polite, friendly and always ready to help. The room was on Picasso side street.It was a little bit noisy but a nice breeze was always coming from the window. We can watch TV n many different languages. We had a pleasant stay.

this hotel is fantastic

Clean, quiet, incredibly polite, friendly, and helpful staff
My wife and I were there for one night on the first night of our honeymoon through Europe. The lady at reception knew who we were as soon as we got off the elevator and was very helpful when showing us a map of the area. When we got into our room, there was a small bottle of champaign with a letter of congratulations waiting for us. The gentleman at reception the next morning was just as helpful and friendly as we checked out and helped us print out boarding passes. Excellent hotel.

No-frills, reasonable value

Location close to the City Park, beach and old quarter.
This is a room-only hotel with no bar, lounge, restaurant etc. Our room was small, wih only about 2ft of space around the bed (it had a wardrobe, but nowhere to put the luggage). The bathroom was good and felt spacious; it had a great wash basin and a good tub and shower. When we arrived there was no soap but it was a genuine mistake and the receptionist was apologetic and immediately provided soap, shampoo and gel. The fire-escape plan showed each room was a different size and ours was the smallest.

Hôtel bien tenu

Bonne situation quand on veut allier plage et visites
Accueil très bien, très arrangeant à la réception (nous sommes arrivés tôt, mais pas de souci pour avoir la chambre car elle était déjà prête; nous voulions laisser nos bagages lors de notre dernière journée, pas de souci non plus). Nous avons apprécié leur disponibilité. Il est agréable de trouver des petites bouteilles d'eau fraiches dans le petit frigo mis à disposition par l'hôtel à l'accueil et du café. La chambre quant à elle était bien et propre rien à redire. Elle donnait sur la rue mais non bruyante. Nous ne prenions pas de petit-déjeuners, donc pas de commentaires à faire à ce sujet.
