Stayed here for the first time last weekend ( 8-10th Sept 2012) and we stayed in Room 6. We arrived at 11am - earlier than we had expected - and even though the room was not ready the helpful staff member took our bags, checked us in, gave us the room key and made it possible for us to go sighting seeing immediately in the city. Very much appreciated.
The hotel is right beside the Arc De Triomphe Metro station, but we had no disturbances from the traffic, Metro or anything like that and slept like logs every night without any need for earplugs.
We were at the rear of the property and had no balcony so it was not as atmospheric in the mornings however it was so quiet and cool in our room, we lived without the balcony and associated noise you would get towards the front of the building. So if you are a light sleeper- ask for a rear room and you will be fine.
Room and bathroom was private. The shower was quite small but there is a separate toilet room. Nothing was FANCY but all was clean, bright and practical. No complaints at all from us although if you were to stay there for a longer period or are back-packing and have large loads of luggage, it might be worth asking for a slightly larger room.
Overall, we would recommend the hotel (more like a hostal really) for good value for money, helpful staff with excellent English, great location and decent standard of accommodation.
The only downside is that there is no kitchen or breakfast options at the hotel. Luckily, across the placa is a great cheap bakery called Granier. E2.00 for a cafe con leche and a tostada. Also along Ronda Sant Pere are quite a few neighbourhood bars with E1.00 bottles of beer and cheap tapas, snacks and coffee, a few stay open late and there is even a kebab shop. WARNING- do not EAT or DRINK at the very very rubbish bar directly across the road called TROLE. The worst staff and the worse tapas EVER.. cannot stress highly enough how rubbish this bar is.
