Great Customer Service!
I was a bit worried about staying at this hotel since it's only a 1 star hotel (we were staying for 2 nights). However, considering that it's 1 star, it was EXTREMELY clean and very comfortable (I've stayed at 3 star hotels that weren't half as clean as this one!). Here's what I mean: 1. the room has a safe! I was previously at another fancier hotel (3 stars) that didn't provide a safe. 2. there's someone sitting at reception 24 hours. 3. the pillows and mattress were very comfortable. The mattress was king size. 4. the room is spacious 5. the shower was a proper stall, with a door, so showering doesn't flood the bathroom floor 6. the toilet seat and cover had some scratches, but they were NOT dirty 7. I didn't have ants and other insects inside the room 8. the AC was a little loud, but it was strong and worked fine 9. the bed linens were very simple, but CLEAN and functional (they had a warmer blanket if needed). 10. It was a bit noisy in the hotel, but they have signs everywhere reminding people to be quiet 11. Most importantly, Lluis, the receptionist is AMAZING. Although he had a steady flow of customers speaking with him (before me), he still provided me with all the help and information I needed in a very patient and professional manner. He is also very honest with money, and I really respect him for that. He also has a very calming presence. Maybe the hotel is in a shady area of the city, but it's still an excellent place to stay for a few nights!

Nice stay!
The location was awesome! Loved the gothic quarter! There were a pair of used panties behind the heater that were there and did not belong to us. And the glass to the shower tub wasn’t connected any longer and if you even touched it on accident, it felt like it was going to fall off and break. But the staff was friendly and helpful with any questions we had. Minus one guy, he seemed slightly annoyed as a person in general. But aside from that I would recommend this place for you to stay! There were a tons of shops, and delicious restaurants in a short 2 minute walk!

Clean, economical hotel handy to everything.
The hotel is a handy, economical place to stay close to La 🐑 bla and the port ... a five minute walk to the cruise ship bus.
