Firstly the good bits. We got a very good package price of £125 each for 3 nights flights and accommodation. The hotel was very clean and in a decent location, 25 mins or so on the metro to the gothic quarter. What lets the place down is how noisy it is. Very thin walls, we heard a couple talk all...

So close to the Hospital of St. Pau that you can hear the bells chime! A 5 minute walk to Sagrada Familia along a charming avenue with restaurants around and some local markets for quick shop.Be aware walls are very thin! Clean and tidy. Cleaned daily. Pillows need to be firmer for me! Bed ok. Staff friendly and helpful!

Do not risk booking at this hotel. I booked and they cancelled my reservation at the last min leaving me to find another hotel day before I was due to arrive. This cost me an extra £300. Don't risk it, book somewhere else

Just back from our trip to Barcelona, and what a lovely place to stay. The hotel isn't the prettiest, and feels quite dated, but the room was a good size, everything was cleaned daily, fantastic shower and the staff were wonderful. We were greeted by a man called Danny who gave us two maps, circling all the best paces to...

We stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel was clean and basic with a good large shower, good selection of bathroom extras. The beds were comfy and a good storage area. The female receptionist we met on arrival was very helpful and advised us on the best places to eat and the local buses. The location was excellent with a...

This hotel in nothing more than a base to explore Barcelona. It is clean and accessible. Really close to the Hospital of St. Pau, and 5 minute walk to Sagrada Familia. Quiet area with restaurants around and some local markets for quick shop.

The hotel was very cheap and we knew what we were getting. It's a taxi ride away from most of the attractions pretty close to sagrada familia and park gwell (dodgy spelling). One of the reoccurring problems we had was that the toilet would not flush, be sure to have your confirmation printed on paper when you arrive as they...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The H·TOP BCN City ** is a modern, stylish, comfortable and very well situated hotel in Barcelona. In the hotel you will find from single to family rooms, to relax after a long day visiting Barcelona. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and conveniently priced. It is situated less than a minute walk from the biggest modernist monument in Europe, the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, and a very short distance from the Sagrada Familia. Closest "Metro", Barcelona's underground name, is Sant Pau/Dos de Maig from the L5 line and it is placed at 3 minutes walking distance from the hotel. To go to Sagrada Familia you will need to get off on the first stop, but being situated at very short distance going through the Avenida de Gaudi, we recommend you to go by walk. Eventually, if you like to go to Barcelona's city center, from Sant Pau/Dos de Maig Metro station there are  only five stations, so you will be in there in some 20 minutes from the hotel's door. Our aim is to provide the best quality price relation to our costumers from around the world in order to give them the chance to discover this marvelous city called BARCELONA. ... more   less
