Nice modern comfortable rooms! Showers are amazing! Good views from balcony. Had a joint one with parents on the top floor. Nice sounds of the busy Barcelona streets. Great staff. Only suggestion would be to maybe have some music in the bar of an evening, would add more atmosphere as it's a bit dead at night. Was worried from reading...

We arrived and checked into our room which was on the 1st floor and viewed a wall. We asked to be moved and we were given a room on the 4th floor. Yes it faces a busy street but it is a busy city. We had a small balcony, only complaint was the lack of blackout curtains. The room was...

Wonderful staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Awesome location across the Plaza from Gaudi Cathedral. Centrally located in the Barcelona Gothic area. Plenty of shops and restaurants close by. The bar and restaurant were quaint places to sit and talk over the days travels.

We booked a name your own price 4 star in the Gothis quarter and while at first glance this hotel looked 4 star once you get into the room and see the amenities it is not. First off no hairdryer, even though there was supposed to be one, the AC would not work, the shampoo offered was in a small...

From walking into the lobby you know you have picked well. A lovely, welcoming, airy space with a very welcoming receptionist. The room was excellent on the 5th floor with a view of the busy street which leads to the port. I love the sounds of a city. The hotel is close to the old city beside the Roman walls...

Bad experience. Though very well located at a reasonable price and clean, it all comes with a cost. The Pillows were horrible. It was like resting your head on a brick. Really bad. If you want to have a terrible sleep. stay here, you won't forget the experience. Also there is no air conditioning in the room during these months...

I was a bit worried after reading some reviews about this hotel, but we really had no problem. Yes it can be a bit noisy, but it's in a busy area, so there is obviously going to be some road noise. If people want a peaceful hotel, maybe don't book in a busy area. The staff were friendly enough. The...

I do not recommend this hotel to anyone. If you book your stay on Booking.com you will be treated like a number - period. We booked a room through the website and got the dates wrong. We were charged $232 for this mistake and the hotel maintained a "take no prisoners" attitude about it. So, instead of getting our $585...

This hotel is near major sites and close to the Metro. Room in the back with a view of the air shaft was small but quiet. No air conditioning this time of year which is a major drawback for us as we like to be cold when we sleep. As another reviewer mentioned the amenities like soap and shampoo were...

We stayed 3 nights in a double room which were really comfortable and spacious. You'll get plenty of space, nice interior, fast wi-fi and perfect location.
