Hot tub did not work
Good location but seeing as we booked the place only because it had a hot tub, which we found out did not work when we got there was disappointing. No effort was made to compensate us for this, or fix the tub. Clean, nice bathroom, room lighting a bit dim though.

Ok bad service
New, clean and well located
The hotel has a good location and has a nice new fit out. Unfortunately the hotel is being badly run. My room had an electrical switch board that buzzed loudly all night long. The air conditioning would only work if set to at least 15 degrees Celsius, freezing. The man at reception gave me incorrect information about the aeroport buses that run from the square outside the hotel and told me I would have to take a taxi. This ended up costing me a 43 euro taxi ride instead of a 6 euro bus ticket. I would not recommend this hotel.

no fuss and convenient hotel for sight-seeing
inexpensive, clean, comfortable and well located
The hotel room was small, clean, and sparsely furnished. While I would not want to spend much time in the room, aside from sleeping and grooming, it was conveniently located for touristing about town. I value comfortable beds and high pressure showers, this hotel did not dissappoint. I liked that the hotel lobby was stocked with water bottles, snacks, and coffee-on-demand for most of the day. I would not hesitate to stay again.

Great location and helpful staff
Location; friendly, helpful staff; well priced
When staying in Barcelona you want to be close to Las Ramblas and the Gothic quarter without necasserily being right in it. This hotel is one street down Las Ramblas and about 300-400 metres along which is perfect. The staff were very helpful regarding how to find your way around and the hotel has plenty of tourism brochures. Free internet in the lobby helps for last minute planning too. Free water, tea and coffee 24 hours/day is a great add-on service. I have read previous posts regarding thin walls and therefore being noisy and I agree this can be an issue if you have a noisy neighbour, but we encountered no external noise as it is nearby but not right in the "action". Very enjoyable stay.

Hotel in a great location
Hotel was right in the center of the old city - we walked everywhere. It was excellent fine for our purposes
The hotel is new and the rooms are furnished very simply - no refrigerator, no chest of drawers, but there was a safe we could use. Still, it served our purposes. The service was excellent. The roof terrace could use a table with umbrella and seating, as well as small tables between the lounge chairs. I would especially recommend Ciutat Viella to young travelers, as it is in the university area.
