Hotels in a great location for Sagrada and no more than a 10 Euro taxi trip to all the major points of interest. Rooms were cleaned every day with clean towels. Beds were comfortable. Shower was amazing with 2 shower heads and very powerful with hot water always available. I didn't find out until halfway through my stay that you...

H Top Bcn City is a very average hotel with the only redeeming factor being its walkable distance from the Sagrada Familia! The hotel has very strict policies, whereby if you reach before the check in time of 3 pm, you have to pay a 3 euro fee to deposit your baggage in the hotel baggage locker! First time in...

I stayed here with my sister for a 4 night break in late March and early April. We booked through Last Minute and were very pleased with the hotel for what we paid. The hotel is easy to find if you leave the Metro at the Sant Pau station. Travessera de Gracia is a very long road, but the hotel...

After not paying much to stay here we couldn't make too many complaints against the hotel. Yes it was very basic but it was clean and the staff were friendly. In total we were there for two nights and spent the majority of our time sight seeing so the hotel was a great base. Very close to the metro and...

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
