Very Good 8.4 From 26 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great price at the heart of Barcenola
The five nights stay was excellent. We have booked a room with balcony so spectular view on Spanish local resident lifestyle. Room was small but capable to occupy for one person. Bathroom right next to it and clean. Different choices of tea provide all time with coffee. The bed a bit sunk down after few days of sleep. Most important the place is really a walking distance to downtown. Approx 15 mins to the La Rumba and the market. Few blocks to major streets with major attractions. From Universities station only less than 7 mins walk if you can find a bakery store then walk in. Receptionists were helpful particularly thank you Camilia really helpful to get into direction for train station as well other places in town. Great work.

Great find for exploring Barcelona
I really enjoyed my time at this hotel. The location is fantastic for exploring Barcelona as many of the main areas are easy walking and the metro is pretty close too. Also great friendly staff, clean room, very clean shared bathrooms and quiet. Excellent value for money.
