    The staff was very friendly and helpful in giving us directions. We got upgraded without charge with a full size bed rooms. I really don’t know the difference between The one I booked and this one. The breakfast fast fabulous, a great Breakfast buffet. Remember that you are in the city and there will be noise outside, but if you end up tired like us, you won’t heard anything. There is also plenty of eating places to eat and walking distance to Sagrada Família, major streets and metro.

    Needs improvement

    The hotel was not very good at all. The bed was pretty bad, there was a stain right on the sheet under my pillow, the pillows were hard, the air conditioner bearly kept us cool, and to top it off, there were 5 annoying flys flying around the room. We don’t recommend this hotel to anyone and we will not be going back there again.

    Nice place!

    A bit small and the bathroom was always very hot because there was only air conditioning in the bedroom, but overall a good stay!

    Awesome Hotel

    Simple and early check-in with very friendly staff. Room was on the first floor facing the corner with all the traffic and people moving around outside but it was very quiet. I felt comfortable in that room and wish I could stay longer. Next time I'm in town, I'll stay in this hotel again.
