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
Great location and friendly staff.”
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”
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.
Great location, passionate staff”
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.
The office is located about 3 mins walk from the accomodation and it is quite secure as the gate to the accomodation will only open when the guests' face are recognised by the hotel staff over at the office. It is close to many cafes and bar and a walk distance to the harbour. It will take about 10 mins walk to the nearest train/subway station.
Everything was great! The staff is so very helpful. The only bad thing was that the hotel was very loud. You can hear everyone on the hallway and the neighbors.
No-frills, reasonable value”
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.
A short stay”
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.
Checkin was very confusing as the reception is on a different address.
Great location! Great value for the city.
I enjoyed my stay.. great location though annexed with the main building.
A pleasant stay, high recommend for budget travell”
Great place, Awesome staff”
Defraudante, pensábamos que era de 3 estrellas cuando lo reservamos, y nos llevamos un buen chasco, es un hotel que consiste en toda una planta de una finca,las habitaciones diminutas, la tv creo que no tenía ní 15 pulgadas, la limpieza brillaba por su ausencia, y en la web sale una recepción que sólo está de decoracion, puesto que nunca hay nadie. La recepción se encuentra en otro hotel, el hotel chic born. Nos sentimos defraudados, engañados, se lo comunicamos a la recepcionista la primera noche, pero quedó en eso, en un simple comentario.
Hôtel bien tenu”
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.
Besser kann man sich kein Hotel in Barcelona aussuchen. Schnell bei allen Sehenswuerdigkeiten. Gemuetliches designtes Kaffee mit Reception und super freundliches Personal.
Modernes, gerade erst renoviertes Hotel im Zentrum”
im grossen und ganzen hat uns das hotel sehr gut gefallen und wir fanden die mitarbeiter freundlich. wer aber internet nutzen muss, hat in manchen zimmern einen schlecht empfang. das ist auch das einzig negative, das uns an dem hotel aufgefallen ist. allerdings sagte die managerin, dass sie das problem lösen lassen wird. toll ist auch die lage direkt am parc de la ciutadella. von dort aus kann man alles gut erreichen.
Semplice ma completo di tutto”
L'hotel è semplice ma completo di tutto, è disponibile anche un'area comune dove poter prendere acqua, the e caffè in ogni momento. La pulizia della stanza invece lasciava un po' a desiderare mentre la posizione è ottima per visitare la città
Mi sono trovata molto bene camera grande e confortevole. Ottima posizione. Sarebbe perfetto aggiungere un frigo in camera ma lo consiglio. Staff gentilissimo
barcellona di passaggio”
Ottimo, come sempre. Se è disponibile, prenoto sempre al Chic & Basic Zoo
