Great location and value for money
Great location, free WiFi

Nice hotel close to La Ramba
3 minute walk to La Rambla, modern hotel
the people on the desk could have been more welcoming, but weren't, the bed was as hard as a rock, the restaurant looked ok but we weren't able to eat there because of an early flight. the bathroom was modern, except for the bed, other than the bed, we had no complaints. we would stay there again but ensure something was done about the bed. we did have trouble finding the principal hotel and a cross street would have helped us find it sooner, as we had walked from the start of la rambla from the harbour, incidentally the nearest cross street to the principal hotel is hospital st.

Basic hotel with small room but great location
Central location & 5 mins walk to metro station
Though this hotel has very central location and yet convenient for public transport, theres a few let down: 1. Room is extremely small and basic 2. Bed is uncomfortable (hard) and air conditioner is centrally controlled with warm temperature hence the stuffiness in the room. 3. Bed linen was dusty even after it was changed after 2 days 4. Air conditioner make noises that disturb good night sleep. Will not recommend this hotel if you are expecting a more comfortable holiday and is definitely not value for money

quaint hotel, and great location.
great location in middle of La Ramblas
comfortable, and breakfast was good. The hotel needs to replace all their bath towels as they are old, threadbare and very thin, and also they could provide some softer pillows for those who need it.. Otherwise the stay was fine and the location great.

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Principal in Barcelona. The Hotel is centrally placed in the city center, very close to underground station. We liked very much Good breakfast, good service and nice & comfortable rooms. We will recommend this hotel to stay which is very good within the price range it cost.

3er Zimmer
wir haben ein Deluxe 3er Zimmer gebucht, dass Zimmer war jedoch ein 2 Bett Zimmer mit einem zusätzlichem Bett. Man konnte sich kaum bewegen. Der Zutritt zum Safe und Schrank war durch das dritte Bett komplett versperrt. Die Lage ist sehr gut, direkt an der U Bahn station Liceu und an Las Ramblas. Das Hotel macht eine guten und sauberen Eindruck

Super Lage, Zimmer nicht sehr modern aber sauber
Gute Lage, günstige Zimmer
Das Zimmer war sauber und die Mitarbeiter freundlich. Das Zimmer war sehr klein und wir mussten den Vorhang schließen, da die Fenster der Nachbarn nur 1 Meter entfernt waren. Lage ist super. Zum Strand ist es weit.
