8/10 Very good

Nifty Barcelona
I guess I didn’t realize this was a hiatal, but I must say, the service was great! They stayed late to let me in and gave me the key and showed me around. The room was fine, showers had plenty of hot water, kitchen well-stocked, but the toilets were a bit small. The location is good, not far from the main touristy things. Ala in all, it was a good stay.

Nice hotel in good location in Barcelona but...
Everything was that as i expected but one thing is terrible. I need room only for rest after busy day spend on traveling. In the house i found information about hours of silence. It was from 22 to 6. But about 1:00 a.m. girl from reception very loud talking with one of guest. The cnoversation was very happy, girl laughting very loud and she aweked me her voice.. I went to the kitchen and I pointed out that interfere in the middle of the night. She apologized and close the door. In the room i still hear conversation (man picks up the girl and she was in heaven). Sorry, after You awake me i dont sleep all night.

2/10 Poor

Health Concern
My wife and I were kept up all night as the bed was infected with bed bugs. We were both scratching all night from head to toe and had bites the next morning. I had seen past hotel reviews complaining about the same issue from previous occupants. Further more the owner of the hotel admitted to me twice that he had previously had the health issue in the past in other shared rooms. We asked to get fairly compensated back and the hotel owner rejected our request. On a positive note, the hotel was close to public transportation and the hotel staff were very helpful.
