Location is good, within walking distance of the beaches and Ramblas. Everything we needed except air conditioning in the bedrooms, but fans were provided and we found these adequate in September. Very competitive price for single en-suite rooms which were clean and comfortable. Efficient lifts, Basic but plentiful buffet breakfast, friendly and helpful staff - what more could we want?

This place is like a tourist trap. we paid a lot of money but we didn't get anything valuable for that. the only good thing is that it is close to the city center. It is super expensive! The stuff is OK. the rooms are one bedroom but they adapt for two. super small , noisy and super warm. the...

Great location! The free breakfast was a nice bonus and the kitchen provided in the room really added to our stay. I had read previous reviews that the rooms were really hot and no fans provided. We had 2 fans in our room which were really helpful as it was warm. The residence is really conveniently located to many attractions...

Just a kind of "hostal" with the great value of a little kitchen in the room. Also good breakfast and location! The staff was generally very helpfull and english speaker. Very bad that u can connect only one device using wifi.

The location was a good one and hence it was a choice. For the price I paid, they can do a lot better. Upon check in, especially if you have taken an early morning train or flight, doesn't matter, they make you wait till 1.00 pm and no considerations. It s a common sight that people with heavy bags and...

The accomodation is in a good location within 10-20 minutes walk of most attractions or a Metro station. The area was relatively quiet although some of the guests were quite noisy on occasion. The room had a little kitchen area witha fridge so that you could keep water etc cool. The bathroom was small and basic but clean and all...

Staying in Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica

Neighbourhood Profile
Ciutadella / Vila Olimpica
The sounds of Marina Olympica's rocking boats and clicking mastheads swaying to and fro set an impressive backdrop for Ciutadella and Villa Olimpica. Follow the aromas of garlic, wine, and fresh local fish to the various restaurants running along the marina. A grand bronze fish statue soaring high above serves as a beacon to those searching for the renowned Casino Barcelona or the extremely popular nightclubs which practically lie on the beach itself.

“room 101 has a street view with a noisy traffic, but it features two windows, which make the room look lovely and cozy. Even if it's very basic. Perhaps it wouldn't be that noisy, when the weather is not hot and you do not have to open both windows.”
