“Very comfortable location for shoppers and those who like to ramble around Ramblas)))”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

Hard to imagine more center then location of this hotel.

But there were few points i was disapointed with.

Isolation of rooms...in the morning cleaning stuff start to moove in coridors very early, each step, each moove...very disturbing...feeling like door made of paper, and the same sound system from neighbours...

Size of room and ergonomics...very small! but its not just about square meters, but also not comfortable configuration of different details in room, like switches, shelfs in batchroom part...just in general strangely organised spase as for such small space.

No room service.

Staff very nice, friendly and helpful!

The staff was friendly & helpful. The breakfast was great & a fair price. Rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Great location for touring Barcelona. However, in some rooms the bathroom opens to the bedroom with no door--similar to studio apartment. There was not a lot of privacy which was difficult with 2 + people. Overall are stay was very good and safe.

Just at the top of Ramblas. could not be more centered. I guess for this reason you pay the price and get really small place for standard and economy rooms.
That small that i hit my head getting up in toilets.

Isolation not top as from 8 am every mornings the house keeper was waiking us up as her vacum was hitting the room door.
Also every morning the cleeners try to enter the room without knocking..

No room service :-( if your hungry at night... ..

very nice staff.

I got what seems like a fair price to stay here ($125/night), and for that price it was a lovely hotel. I would not pay more. The rooms are clean and pleasant. It is well located in the popular, if overly crowded with tourists, area of Las Ramblas. Simple amenities are missing: a guide to the tv channels, an alarm clock, a leaflet explaining hotel amenities such as how to use the phone to call the front desk, get an outside line, etc. The front desk staff is pleasant, if not completely warm and welcoming as at other hotels. There is no security at the hotel, so anyone can walk right in and get in the elevator with you. Front desk staff does not even ask to see your key to walk by them...and given that las Ramblas is known for pickpockets and thieves, the lack of security is surprising!

This also was in my hotel.2 woman were following us, we got some gelato (a must) and were walking to our hotel, almost next store. I did not like how closely two woman were to us. As we went into the hotel they followed. I sat down and the men at the desk could see me. It was not too crowded and the two woman did not know where to go..and one woman said something to me in spanish, I did not understand her but I said no comprende and waived my hand, they turned and left. Afterwards I realized that had we gone into the elevator they would have stole everything. Fortunately my partner had the money and cards where no one would suspect. The hotel was very noisy. Do not face the street. Get up on the higher floors. Get a better room. It pays to be more comfortable. Our room was way too small. We stayed in Barcelona for 6 days... I absolutely loved it... I Madrid we stayed at the Atlantico which is a Best Western and highly recommended by trip advisors... Have a breakfast or lunch or just go to the big market. Everything in food you can imagine. Don't forget to have their hot chocolate... like pudding with cookies.. The food is wonderful.. The museums, archtecture, nice people,
and cleanlinss of the city was amazing. Location of hotel was great, just stay away from Standard rooms.

Room Tip: call the hotel and book it yourself..... I went thru expedia.Ask for room 810 or 812 If you do not l...
