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. Directly below the hotel are benches and chairs where people would congregate all night, sometimes until 5am. I would consider...

Hotel right on the Rambla with a great location. This hotel is a mixed bag. The rooms and hall were very small. The towels did not feel fresh and smelled soured. The beds were just O.K. On the plus side they had a very nice breakfast and food was out all day. Staff was helpful to help with luggage due...

We stayed here for one night after a week long Med cruise before catching a flight back to the States.

We booked in way in advance at a rate of 115E/night for a double room with a balcony....
