“Great base to explore Barcelona”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

Stopped for 3 nights just prior to Christmas
Hotel is situated in the centre of the Ramblas, right next to a tube station. Booked through Expedia and no problems checking in. We were informed by the receptionist (who spoke good English) that we had been upgraded to a superior room on the 4th floor with a view of the street.
Our room was on the 4th (top) floor and with a side view of the Ramblas. The decor was good and there was a hairdrier and good shower in the room. Also a Juliet style balcony with shutters and good double glazing keeping the noise from the street out.
There was a roof terrace which was open but not lit or appeared used due presumably to the time of year, although the door to enter it was open and gave a great view of the street.
The room was warm and the bed comfortable. For the price and location, we were more than happy and would stop here again.
Word of warning about some of the restaurants on the Ramblas, they seem to advertise relatively cheap ish food then when you go in, sit down etc, they hit you with the drinks menu, one place charging 6.5 euro as the cheapest drink for a 0.5 litre glass of cola! Obviously we left and ate elsewhere!

Dear guest
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time and rate us on trip advisor,
All comments are the best reward for us and help us to continue in this way improving every day.
When it’s possible we offer up-grade to our guests to do the best stay possible into the hotel.
Like the rest of the cities center on the world, there are some expensive places, but for the next time we will recommend you the terrace that we have on La Rambla to take a drink or eat.
Thank you for having taken some of your valuable time to send us your comment; and of course, I will show that review to all the hotel staff.
Best regards
The management

The hotel has great decor, but TINY rooms. There was barely enough space in the room for our luggage (2 people). We stayed only one night and would not have wanted to stay longer. We were cramped. The location is convenient for touristy things but the street activity didn't die down until about 5 am, so if you stay at this hotel be sure to pack some ear plugs. Also, their Internet doesn't have enough bandwidth for the guests. I was finally able to get online around 1:30 am.

The staff is very nice.

We have to kind of rooms, standard and superiors; the superior rooms are bigger than standard rooms, and when it’s possible we offer an up-grade to our guests.
Sorry for the wifi connection, but this year we have changed all connections and it’s working perfectly during all the day.

Room was very small. Did not contain either a chair to sit on or a mirror. When we arrived the shower head was not fixed to the wall. When advised of the problem next day it was fixed to our satisfaction.
The room was to the rear of the Hotel and overlooked a narrow alleyway that was frequented by drunks, drug snorters and vagabonds. It was very noisy as the echoes rebounded.
The staff at reception and the housekeepers did a very good job nd were really friendly and helpful.
The hotel was ideally situated with metro and bus stops nearby.

Room Tip: Request a big double room away from a noisy alleyway.

Dear guest
First of all, thank you so much for taking your valuable time and rate us on trip advisor.
We have two rooms categories, standard and superiors; the superior rooms are bigger than standard rooms, and when it’s possible we offer an up-grade to our guests.
Sorry for the problem with the shower head, our intention is offer you our best making feel you as comfortable as you are at home, and when there are a problem we try to solve immediately and if it’s not possible to solve the same day we try to solve as soon as possible; furthermore, when we cannot solve we offer a change of room.
We are really sorry for your negative experience with the drunks and homeless people in our nice Barcelona, from the reception we try to make our best to reduce your negative feeling. Centers of big city are sensible to this issue but, if we know, we can call to the police and they appear to be on top of the problem.
Thank you for having taken some of your valuable time to send us your review; I will show your review to the rest of the staff to improve day by day, and, especially, to congratulate them with their job.
Best regards

Very smart and indeed "cool" decor, Comfortable beds and right in the heart of things, but double glazing ensures quiet at night. Modest reception to be sure but friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast very good value also. Two tiny improvements would make it perfect. Waste paper bin minute - was virtually uselessly too small. Also no English speaking satellite TV. I know that we are in Spain, and when in Spain etc, but I'm talking icing on the cake here.

Currently at the hotel room 104 & 102. Yes, this hotel is on La Rambles and we expected the outside noise from the road and walking by traffic which can be cancelled out by use of the air conditioning. But, what we did not expect was the level of hotel noise. The hallways are in marble...pretty but makes for a very noisey hotel. People wearing high heels echo in the hallways. On night at 12:15AM they where rolling a beer keg down the hallway! Lots of slamming doors! Scrapping back chairs from the computer center and breakfast room. Recommende if you stay here bring ear plugs. Also, flashing fire alarm above the bed tht flashes every 7 seconds.
Rooms are done in a very modern fashion which is nice and rooms have laminent floors...which make for easy maintenance.The bed is a in wooden box frame sticking out in the room that my husband and I kept barking are shins on. TV in room only gets 4 channels. Huge shower on suite...nice after being on a cruise ship that have small shower stalls.
Finally, the bed...hard and umcomfortable....if I had not booked this hotel through expedia and would not get my money back after the first night I would have found a different hotel for my family. Breakfast with room is adequate and filling. No lounged area to just sit and read a book or paper.
Would have liked to had a refrigerator in the room to have bottled water or soda chilled. Hotel does not have a bar or resturant.

Room Tip: See if you can get a roon at the back of the hotel and not on the first floor where we were at.

Dear guest
Thank you so much for taking your valuable time and rate us on trip advisor.
About the negative feeling, sorry for the problems during the days you stayed at the hotel. We work to satisfy the requests of the guests but we understand that we didn’t satisfy your stay. When the flashing fire work is for security and in this case it was due to one guest was smoking inside to the room that it’s forbidden. It was working till we found which the problem was. We understand you but we act as is explained in the safety protocol.
Sorry for the noise, it happens due to the lounge area where the guests can use our laptops with free connection but when there are noisy we discuss with the guests on the laptops to advise them that there are people inside to the rooms resting during the time.
We have a restaurant that it’s opened at the midday from Monday to Friday but we are working to open at the weekends and nights as soon as possible, furthermore we have a terrace in the middle of La Rambla opened every day.
Inside to the rooms we don’t have a fridge but we can keep everything in our fridges if the guests request us; furthermore, we have fridges with free mineral water in the corridors.
Thank you for having taken some of your valuable time to send us your review and sorry for all inconveniences; if you come back to our hotel we will try to change your opinion about this.
Thank you again.
