We booked this hotel for 2 nights before boarding a cruise. It is the perfect location, right on La Rambla, only 1 block from Plaza de Catalunya and the Hop On/Hop Off Buses. The staff was friendly, directed us to great restaurants and tapas bars and after a long flight from the US, we were very happy that they were...

Yes, there are some frayed edges here and there, and lots of pink, and plastic storage drawers in the room and the bathroom and a high side on the tub......but......it also met all of our travellers' needs, had great location, service and convenience features, all at a price we thought was reasonable. We booked through submitting a query from the...

This hotel is right on La Rambla. We had a balcony, highly recommended, and sat outside morning and night watching the people and enjoying our own tapas. This room is actually not as small as I thought it would be and the three of us and three large and three small suitcases had no trouble fitting. The elevator is crazy...

The location is the main draw for this hotel. We booked a triple room with balcony for two nights. The room had two twin beds pushed together and a small blow up mattress on floor. The room is very small so with luggages for three people added to the blow up mattress, walking in room was very difficult. The balcony...

We stayed for 4 nights to visit Barcelona and before booking we'd read the reviews and seen the room photo's so really weren't sure what to expect. We really enjoyed our stay! The decor throughout the hotel is very different, the intercoms to get into every floor are new to us but make the place feel very safe. The buffet...

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and found the location very central and convenient for tours, shopping and restaurants. The room was small, but clean.

The best thing one could say about this strange hotel is the location. The whole experience was somewhat comical & will ever be a talking point.

We were on the 3rd floor and had a darling little balcony with two wrought-iron café chairs and table. We loved having a glass of wine and people watch beneath us on Las Ramblas every afternoon after a long day of sightseeing.
