The rooms were very dirty, there was blood on the floor and the A/C didn't work. The next room had blood on the mattress. It was bad bad!

Location and Value
I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The location is perfect for anyone looking to see all that Barcelona has to offer and at a reasonable price. 2 slight disappointments: on the last 2 days some early morning construction was extremely annoying (not good for hangovers) and for some reason the housekeeping simply reshuffled sheets when making the bed rather than washing and replacing. However, overall I would recommend this hotel.

The internet speed, the staff friendly treatment and the location
I highly don't recommend this hotel. this is not a 4 star hotel. it is a 1 star hotel. the bed was not comfortable. The AC was very load. the problem is that i already did an advanced payment and i couldn't change the hotel.

Nice foyer. Strange room configuration
Nice foyer. Polite staff. Good location.
Our stay at this hotel was pleasant enough. The only major bad point for me was that their free wifi internet access didn't work for my iPhone or iPad. I suspect this was because they were both running iOS6. After complaining about this, I was simply told that "yes, there is a problem with some Apple devices". They weren't willing to actually fix the problem. Other than that, the room was a little small, but it was adequate.

Great location but small rooms
good location
the room was very dirty because we saw some bugs crawling across the room. it was however nice to have a terrace to see the older parts of the town. the front desk people were not so nice when we asked them about directions and tours. the internet was free so that's a plus.

Great location, but so-so rooms
I liked the hotel location as it was near Jaume I and sits on the edge of the Gothic Quarter. This makes it quite easy to get around. A bit of a walk to get to Las Ramblas but not far by any stretch. Room was clean enough and of a decent-sized. I would recommend to friends.
