Great location, nice and clean
Great location, the facilities were a little basic, but I didn’t go to Barcelona to sit in a hotel room!! The value for money, being that close to La Rambla and the port was just excellent!

Close to Las Ramblas, Tight Room, Big Bathroom
My husband and I stayed at Hotel California last month and were happy with our stay overall. We came in directly from our early flight and the hotel stored our luggage behind the front desk. The room was ready and we were able to check in over 2 hours early with no additional charge! The two men that we came across at the front desk were helpful and accommodating, providing a lot of advice about places to eat, where to buy souvenirs and how to get to and from La Sagrada Familia. The hotel is nestled on a small alley off a big street. It was a very short walk from Las Ramblas! The room was small but had an okay-sized closet, many outlets and a huge bathroom, compared to many other hotels in Europe. They also provided basic toiletries (shampoo, soap, tissues, etc.). The room had a small desk with a TV, as well. No English television stations. The street outside was a little noisy in the evenings/nights but it wasn't unbearable. WiFi was pretty slow but things came through after a minute or so. I cannot comment on breakfast because we left too early to take advantage of it.

Nice Enough Value in Heart of Gothic Quarter
Overall, hotel was good and mostly stayed here because of the price and location. This hotel's location was excellent--in the middle of la rambla in Barcelona's Gothic Quarter. The rooms were spacious enough and had everything you need. The beds were basic but fine for sleeping a couple nights during a vacation. Balcony in the room was lovely, and breakfast was good to get you going in the morning. The hotel staff was friendly, but not very helpful. We needed to scan a document and they would not let us use the scanner at the front desk that was in plain view. They have a policy of keeping the room keys with the front desk when you leave the hotel. Not sure how typical it is in Barcelona, but seemed odd combined with a phonecall from the front desk shortly after we were checked-in. The actual area where the hotel is located cannot be reached by car, so you must walk down a dark side-street with people hanging out on the corners. For your own safety and peace of mind, don't stay here if you are traveling alone.

Great for downtown dwellers.
Hotel location and the staff are great. Bed was uncomfortable and breakfast coffee was really bad. At night there was lot of street noise, but it was expected for a hotel in busy old town - it added to the atmosphere.

can't beat location!
Its glory days may have been a while ago but California provides adequate accommodations in a fantastic location. Nice to have breakfast included ... staff answered all our questions & helped with taxi needs ... and rooms were very clean. Wi-Fi worked great. Laundry down the street & many bars/restaurants less than a minute away!
