                free wifi - that's clearly a big plus, alongside a nice breakfast and an impacable room. a very nice hotel indeed

                the rooms have very little natural light and are quite small.

                Not the best value for money. The beds were really bad. My days in Barcelona were really difficult, and I was expecting my night sleep to get some rest. At no avail. Every morning I was waking more tired than I slept. The pillows were really - really - thin. If the hotel cannot provide you some rest during the sleep, then it's not worth it...

                The situation is perfect. It is close to the metro station Monumental and to famous Sagrada Familia. Not bad for turists, for sightseeing.

                The room was dark with very bad view from the window. It was like in **hotel.

                The location was good for all the main attractions and places to go out.

                The advertised Wifi was not working during my stay, if I had known that I would not have stayed.

              • Family with children

                The staff was friendly and the breakfast was nice.

                We were staying in a twin room and it was very small, almost without any natural light. If you are traveling with a large bag, be prepared to place it next to the entrance door or on your way to the bathroom - there's literally no place for it.

                The hotel has a good location: close to the downtown (15 min walking) & Sagrada Familia. If you do not want/like to walk then you can use bus nr.7 Which goes all the way from close to the Camp Nou stadium to the big Diagonal Mar mall in north of the town. The bus has stops right outside the hotel. The breakfast was quite good and the room was clean - I think it's wise to take the breakfast since there are not many options around the hotel. Hotel staff are friendly are ready to help.

                Poor quality windows which made to get a lot of noise from the street. Our room's door is also poor quality and had like 2 cm space between it and the upper lintel - this made to hear everything from the hall. More, all the doors closed with big noise which is very unpleasant to hear starting 7 in the morning. Lack of electrical plugs: only one in the room (bad quality) and 1 in the bathroom. But overall, I think someone can live with these if stays max. 4-5 nights.

                The recepsionist was very nice and keen on helping.The location is quite convenient - although it´s not in the centre, its close both to Gran Vía and Diagonal streets

                Don´t expectct a modern design, the furniture and decoration is very 80´s style and the pillows are really, I mean really thin. Though both facts are quite appealing for me personally they might cause inconvenience for others.

                It was a comfortable, quiet and pleasant hotel to stay at and was located in a nice area. I can't comment on the quality of the hotel restaurant food but overall the hotel was great value for money. For a short city break to Barcelona this hotel is idea!

                the rooms had a bad smell like they were not aired with fresh air.first night I had a very bad sleep due to the heat, the a/c is either hot or cold throughout hotel it was hot when it should have been cold. There was a mechanical noise that came on every 15 minutes all night.The cost of the room did not match the quality.
