Staff is extra friendly and helpful. The elevator fit 4 people with luggage. We had a room with a balcony overlooking La Ramblas. It was great watching the... More

I liked this hotel - for what you get and the location it's a really great value (esp with the 5% discount & free bottle of cava if you remember to print & bring-along the TripAdvisor coupon) - but it's unlike most any hotel you've ever visited. Quirky, for sure. I stayed in Room 256 - which, once I learned... More

If you love to fall asleep with people screaming, laughing and talking right outside your balcony, than this is the hotel for you. We spent five sleepless nights pre cruise due to the lack of soundproofing of the balcony doors.
