  • 4.0.Fair

    DO NOT STAY HERE. It’s far from everything, it is in a rough neighborhood not even close to Las Ramblas as others say. Yes there’s a Metro station right in front, but lots of crime, and if you walk you have to pass a few rough blocks before you even feel any type of safe. It stinks on the street it’s on, lots of homeless people. Tons of noise from locals drinking and smoking in the street. I stayed here because a friend of a friend said it’s a nice hotel in prime location, HELL NO. And hotel is out dated. You can hear footsteps from the other people above, AC rattles, and hear water drain when others flush or shower. Again do not stay here unless you’re easy to please and don’t mind going cheap.

  • 4.0.Fair

    staff was very nice and friendly, breakfast was good, but unfortunately I have to say that I wouldn’t go back there again. The surroundings are very noisy. The rooms are extremely small. There is no amenities such toiletries as pretty much every other hotel offers around and for the same price of the room. You won’t find a robe, sleepers, lotion, shower cap, or any of that kind. Bring your own! Anything from the mini bar was extremely overpriced compared to same rooms around. Although the place is a non-smoking facility, I hesitate they reinforce it, as it always smelled as cigarettes and other substances when we stepped out of the elevator into our floor (3rd). I rather pay a bit more for a better establishment. Not to mention that there was construction outside going on of which I was not informed when I booked nor after booking.
