This hotel had the most uncomfortable bed. My husband and I woke up with shoulder and back pain. The hotel is in a very nice location, shops and restaurants are within walking distance. It would have been nice if the hotel offered shuttle rides to and from the train station, especially when the taxi went on strike. The receptionist told us that the taxi issue was not their problem. The bathroom is renovated, but too slippery for elderly. Breakfast buffet was decent.

Good Budget Hotel
Great area, very close to Metro and Medium distance trains. Front desk very accommodating. Breakfast options tasty and consistent with BCN culturally and all fruit was fresh. Is in a kind of random building with a lobby and elevator that smell funky but is pleasantly clean and simple/minimal once inside the facilities. An excellent budget hotel for travellers not looking for big rooms and amenities.

Great little place to stay, a little bit of an enigma, better inside than you think would definitely recommend this place.
