                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!)

                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.

Unfortunately the a/c wasn't working in my room during a hot spell, but the room location kept the room fairly cool,with a fan. Near Las Ramblas and the Basilica Del Pi, lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

                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.

As others have said, the street below can have late night noise on weekends, but it was worth it for the location.

                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.

                Cleanliness Location Inexpensiveness

                We have just spent 5 very pleasant nights in this clean, comfortable, inexpensive, centrally located hotel, less than 200m from La Ramblas and 50m from Placa Reial. The reception desk was open 24 hours, and the receptionists very friendly and helpful, to the extent of phoning to book us a restaurant, and lending us an adapter for our phone charger when we found that we'd brought the wrong adapter. The room was adequate in size with a comfortable double bed and plenty of storage space, desk and flat screen TV, and it and the en suite bathroom were spotless, and were cleaned each day. Our room on the second floor had a balcony overlooking an alleyway leading to Placa Reial, and with the door open was noisy from the activity in Placa Reial well into the small hours, but wasn't a problem for us, although could be an issue for others. The continental breakfast, which was included in the room price was of excellent quality, although the juice was oversweet. Overall we were delighted with this hotel, which for the price was excellent value, and certainly justifies a higher rating than 2 star, and we will use it again when we return to Barcelona and recommend it to any our friends visiting Barcelona.

                Great Location - Don't expect a good nights sleep”

                location

                We stayed four nights in a first floor room overlooking the entrance of the hotel. The room is good, clean, and the staff friendly. The location is PERFECT! My partner really enjoyed the breakfast too. We only had two issues. The bed was incredibly firm. Some may like that, but we were sore in the morning. Another issue was the street noise. The nightlife is quite active and we were woken multiple times by screeching hens parties or drunken lads outside. Nothing the hotel can do about that though. My only recommendation would be if you stay here, avoid a room overlooking the entrance, or try for a room on a higher floor.

                Neat, clean little hotel ”

                Staff, location, value for money

                A little hidden from the main Las Ramblas but good location for shopping and very near the metro. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The bathroom is spacious and the staff are very helpful and friendly. The breakfast is the only downside with poor variety and selection. There is no laundry service but there is one nearby which can do all your laundry for 9 euros. Still for the price you are paying, I think its good value for money.

                Gothic Gem”

                Location, Price, Size

                Both my partner and I stayed here a few days ago for a total of 2 nights. Absolutely fabulous hotel right in the heart of barri gothic down a quiet alleyway. The rooms are great size, the hotel is modern in decor and staff very accommodating. The location is the best I've stayed in whenever I've visited Barcelona. I will most defiantly be back, and when I do will be looking to stay here again. The breakfast was good continental quality and timeframe for this was ideal. Loved it :)
