Can't really fault this hotel, fabulous location, clean tidy rooms, and good value for money. We had a room with a little balcony which was lovely for a view into the streets. Only negative was the noise from the streets however anywhere in the city you would probably get this, didn't hinder sleep though.

With 1* Rey don Jamie is never going to amaze but the hotel is clean and comfortable and in a great location to explore the city. I am not sure I was totally convinced by the security of the rooms but there were no problems when we stayed. The entrance is security controlled giving the hotel a but of extra... More

Was a bit expensive for the quality. Paid 90 euros for one night even tho all the websites said it was 60 euros, hence why we booked it. Quite a surprise when they handed us the receipt for 90 some euros and asked to sign. The rooms were OK. Had potential but they didn't seem to know what to do... More

Me & my friend stayed here for 2 nights whilst sightseeing in Barcelona. The room is a great size, with a balcony which we loved, and easy to get to main attractions from this central hotel. Clean room, friendly staff, would recommend for a short stay to anyone.

Whilst the staff were nice enough and friendly the place itself could really use a serious facelift. Good location but you can find something much better for the price. The paint is peeling off the walls and the whole place seems like it's falling apart.

I didn't have any issues with this property. It's not luxurious, but it's a budget hotel. It was clean and reasonably comfortable and it's located right by the Gothic Quarter and steps away from the metro. At first I thought the reception was a bit frosty as well, but once I got to know the older man up front, he... More

The hotel was very basic but clean and the location excellent! We knew it would be noisy as it was on a busy street and near a square (public demonstrations etc) but we used ear plugs and had no trouble. The room was cleaned daily

Hotel was good and clean. Staff were very friendly. Location is absolutely brilliant for Gothic quarter and not too far to walk to the beach. Plenty of places nearby to eat and side streets for cosy bars. Also very close to Jaume tube station. Only downside was no air-con, this meant we had to sleep with the windows open and... More

This hotel located in the center of Barcelona. Tourist attractions are nearby (also metro stations), the beach is about ten minutes to walk. it was very loud 24/7. Lots of drunk people on the street all night long. Stuff was great, and helpful. The room and the bathroom was really old furnished, damaged.
