“Great location, Value for Money, little Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2011

We returned yesterday from a 4 night stay at this hotel. I think this is a great little hotel. The rooms are small but clean, staff were really friendly. I've paid a lot more for worse hotels. Yes they don't have plugs in the sink or bath, I didn't need one but am sure reception would help if you needed one. The rooms can be a bit noisy but I've experienced the same in other hotels.
The breakfast was basic, (bread rolls, pastry, coffee and juice) but filled us up. The location is great, it's at the top of Las Ramblas, walking distance from most sights and the Aerobus is a 2 min walk away. Getting this bus from the airport is so simple, 5 euros for a single journey and the bus stops in the placa de catalunya a 2 min walk from the hotel (they run every 10 mins!!)
We ate at the hotel one night as they do a 3 course menu including drink and service charge/vat for 10 Euros, must say this was the best meal I had during my stay and the wine I had with the meal was nice! Try the food here......
If we ever come back to Barcelona, I'd stay here again.

Seconds from Las Ramblas, basic but clean room, tiny dated bathroom with no plugs in the sink or bath and no hairdryer, it had a great balcony though. The staff were friendly, but didn't seem to know one end of Barcelona from the other. The real problem was the unbelievable noise, all of it coming from inside the building, at all hours. All in all, not an unpleasant stay, but as I value my sleep I would not be rushing back.

I stayed 1 night at the hotel. Efficient and freindly staffa at the reception, fast check in. The room itself was a bit old, but with window overlooking the yard of the Gothic chuch at the back of the hotel, so quiet and lots of light. Good clean, modern bathroom witha a bathtube and a hairdryer, spacios enough.
The location can't be better: The shuttle bus from and to the airport stops at less than a five minute walk in Plaza de Catalunya. You are two minutes away from the Rambla and on the very edge of the Barrio Gotico. Other main attractions as Palau de la Musica are only five minutes away and main Gaudi's buildings within walkable distance.
Summarizing: Not a luxury hotel at all, but very good value for yourmoney. If you want a nicer hotel, the Nouvel acros the street will do for a bunch more of euros.

Stayed here on business in feb 2010.

This is a clean and functional hotel just off the ramblas.

Staff are helpful and polite.
Rooms are Spartan and functional but again clean. Anyone expecting luxuriating in the bath can think again. Bathroom is cramped.

If you are looking for a conference hotel to sleep and wash with great location in the heart of barrio gotico then this is it.

Best to arrive on foot from Metro. Road access is limited as this is in the heart of the pedestrian zone.

Great cafes bars Nd restaurants within falling distance.

Having read some of the reviews we were a bit dubious but as our travel plans had been thrown into disarray by the Spanish Air Traffic Controllers walkout we suddenly needed overnight accommodation in Barcelona. It is located on the first side street (Carrer de Santa Anna) on the lefthand side of La Rambla coming from Place de Catalunya on an old narrow street.
Reception was very friendly and helpful and our room was large but basic with very little furniture and no tea/coffee making facilities. Similar to a previous reviewer we had no lock on the bathroom door but a nice view onto a Courtyard/small square which is at the rear of the hotel. The basic continental breakfast is served at the back of their Café Bar area and tables are kept for the hotel’s guests. There are plenty of restaurants close by catering for all tastes and budgets and it would be a good base to explore the City. As Barcelona is one of the most expensive cities in Europe I suppose I would classify it as budget en-suite accommodation.
The easiest and quickest way from the airport it to get the very cheap express bus to Plaça Catalunya (Plaza Catalonia) which is the Terminus and when alighting turn 90deg facing the Hard Rock Cafe and to the left of it is a small street called Avinguda del Portal de l'Angel. If you go down it Carrer de Santa Anna is the second on your right and the hotel is about 150 metres on the right opposite the Hotel Catalunya.
