            Not nice staff and moldy rooms”

            We stayed here for 3 nights and left for the third night because the room was so gross. Mild spots on the walls, and every time we pulled back the sheets or curtains or even the bath towels dust would fly everywhere. We couldn’t stop sneezing the whole time and I was overly congested every morning I woke up. The beds were super uncomfortable as well. When we checked in the guy at the front desk never even made eye contact with us and just gave us our room key without saying anything like “do you have any questions” or “have a nice stay” etc. You could tell this staff could care less about their customers and just wanted to get off the shift.

            Small but comfortable hotel in Barcelona”

            close to La Ramblas and in Gothic area, good location for night life and shopping

            The hotel was hidden in a small lane, off La Ramblas road. We have had a little difficulty to spot it. As the result, we was cheated by the taxi driver. I went out of the taxi for 10 seconds to look for the hote's sign and the driver reset his meter. I remembered quite well that the cost was 9.50 euro but the driver insisted that it was 19.50 euro. What's a shame! The hotel was clean and looked modern. The room was not spacious but comfortable. The toilet and bathroom was compact and clean. The hotel staffs could speak English and were very helpful. The location of the hotel was the key. We could walk out of the hotel to La Ramblas road where all actions were in a couple of minutes. This road connected to Passage de Gracia, a main road for shopping. So if you like shopping (like my wife) it would be very convenient. If you don't like walking, the Liceu Metro station was about 200 m. away. The Metro could take us everywhere in Barcelona. We could find almost everything on La Ramblas; shops, restaurants,a market etc. We have found various kinds of fruit in this market. They were cheap and delicious. So if you don't have so much time to spare in Barcelona, this is a perfect location. The hotel provided breakfast with the room. There were bread, cheese, a few kinds of ham, cornflakes and milk, coffee machine and juice machine. Not so much to choose from but it would fill you up.

            Good place to test”

            Great location although it’s quite noise as it’s right next to a square full of bars and restaurants. Only thing I would suggest is to stop promoting their taxi company as I was quote a price in the hotel for a taxi to take me to the airport and the reception guy clearly say (quote), it’s about €35 but if you take one from outside it could be €50 cos the take longer routes to charge more! Yet, the taxi driver that the hotel called for us charge us €47.70 so it’s about the same as just taking one from the main road. Change that and you will be fine.

            AMAZING”

            Pros: pretty much everything about the place! Lovely staff, nice little continental breakfast included, really clean (bit basic but that was perfect for us) spacious rooms but the main selling point has to be the phenomenal location. Perhaps a 5-10 minute walk from the main city centre down la Rambla (google maps was our friend as the streets can be confusing) and a ten minute walk to the beach! Everything is in walking distance from the hotel; beach, shops, parc de cuitidel and a slightly further walk but completely fine was the Sagrada de Família (40 minute walk). Would highly recommended and definitely will be staying there again. (Also there is a brilliant little bar directly opposite called first bar which I would highly recommend!)

            Central location”

            The hotel is in a very central location. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean and, whilst not large, are perfectly adequate for the time you spend in your room. The wifi is free which is a definite bonus. All in all a good choice for us for a few nights.

            Very good, basic, value for money accomadation.”

            Price, Location, Cleanliness.

            Nice clean little hotel right in the heart of La Rambla, approx. 100 metres to the nearest metro stop, (Liceu). Breakfast not to exciting if you are a 'full English' type of guy but more than adequate to put you on until you can find one. My third stay here with another scheduled for May.

            We had an enjoyable stay at California Hotel located only minutes away from La Ramblas. The staff were very friendly and helpful in advising what to do and where to eat. Great restaurant next door to the hotel.

            Location, value

            Very happy with my stay. Great location. Friendly staff. Good price. Only problem is wifi is unreliable. Breakfast is not friendly for vegetarians and vegans, but not a big issue. As others have said, the street below can have late night noise on weekends, but it was worth it for the location.

            Great for first-timers to Barcelona!”

            Location, Cleanliness and Comfort

            Fantastic location, just off Las Ramblas, which makes it easy for first time visitors to experience all of Barcelona. Close to metro and train stations and bicycle rental. Barceloneta beach and the cafes took us 25mins of walk. Despite the lively nightlife, we expected a little noise from the revelers at night but we had no issues with sleeping, and we felt safe around the vicinity of the hotel. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly, and the check-in check-out times also helped with the logistics around our visit. Bedroom was always neat and clean, bed was incredibly comfortable. Breakfast was included in our booking, and although the menu did not vary from day to day and the selection was small, it was still fresh and tasty. Would definitely recommend to first time visitors looking to be in the middle of it all.
