We stayed at this hotel for two nights last July. The rooms were nice but the WiFi was not free except for the first hour, but only with the first login. This was just simply irritating. The staff was friendly though and they spoke good English. There was not much to see in the surroundings and the distance to the... More

This hotel was only okay and was justabout clean. Very badly located and miles from Las Ramblas. Staff were okay. However, there is a nice little wine bar beside it that is very cheap and has great ambience. Be careful walking around the area at night. Few of the local pubs are basically brothels and charge 30EUR for 2 drinks!!
