Very helpful front desk staff. Nice breakfast. Great Location. Room was small but still comfortable enough for our one night stay. Seemed very family friendly though we were traveling alone.

Would stay again!
Great stay! Great area. Very quiet for just off the busiest street in town.

I had the sweetest little room - everything tiny but perfect - the staff was wonderful - the breakfasts fantastic. An important ooint: not for the disabled. There are quite a few steps up to the office first floor. This has its advantages in that it is not right on the street which is noisy and could be problematic. The wonderful staff helped me with my bag going down. I loved my stay there.

Couldn't fault the service, food and location. The room left a lot to be desired - the room had 3 beds (for 2 of us), but there was no room for 3 beds as this left no floor space apart from between 2 beds and near the door and the sink - which was in the room as there was not enough space in the shower room. The shelves were above the third bed, so to use the shelves you would have to climb on the bed. The window had less than 2 sq feet of light coming in as it was over the sink and had a mirror stuck on it.

5 star service
Central location, metro stop literally a minute away. Many attractions also in walking distance. Rooms basic but clean and very nice, it has the essentials. Got some treats, chocolate, candies and even bottled water. Wasn't expecting that at all. Nice gesture. Breakfast was great, many things to choose from. Ivan on reception is the most amazing receptionist I've ever met. That guy deserves some attention. His knowledge of Barcelona is amazing, his tips and suggestions of what to see and where to eat were excellent. 5-star service. If I will go to Barcelona next time, I will stay in this hotel again and will recommend to my friends too. Great stay, thank you
