A Gem of a Hotel
Everything about our stay and Hotel El Canton was great. We will stay there again the next time we are in Barcelona. The warm reception staff and the ease of staying there was terrific. The location was superb and the closeness of great restaurants a plus. Staying there makes you feel like you are part of the neighborhood. You open the door of the hotel and you are right in the middle of Barcelona charm.

Bathroom was small. Location is near. The end of Las Ramblas, so not inconvenient but also not close to restaurants. Service was great. We only used the room to sleep, not much else. Quiet area.
