We stayed 7 nights at this hotel. Excellent location near la ramblas, market and metro and self service laundromat which was very clean.Breakfast more than adequate to start the day. Staff very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Beware the pick pockets on the metro!!

we found the staff very welcoming and helpful. The room was small, but it's just somewhere to base yourself, so perfectly adequate. The Hotel is perfectly situated to explore the old town, and there are plenty of eating places nearby. We'll be back !

Great location, easily accessible. Very clean, almost spartan decoration/modern, comfy bed! Recycling containers in the bathroom. Free wifi (properly free, easily accessible - I was given the password without asking for it on check in). Staff were welcoming and informative, as was the twitter stream. Printed information about daily weather and activities available at reception. Buffet breakfast - basic selection but all decent quality. I was travelling alone, the room had a double bed but was small - fine for one, I don't know if those travelling together would be placed in larger rooms. Highly recommended, I would stay again.

Mateo and staff are so helpful and patient. I was tired and hungry when I arrived and Mateo recommended Bar Lobo where I had a wonderful lunch. This is one of the best hotel experiences I have had and at a great price, as well! It is conveniently located near Playa Catalunya and the Boqueteria Market just off Las Ramblas. I will definitely recommend it and come back again.

It cannot be argued that the location of this hotel is perfect for someone exploring Barcelona for the first time. The hotel is close to many different attractions, and it's near metro lines that will get you to any place in the city in minutes if you want to get away from La Rambla and the surrounding areas for a few hours. The hotel itself is nice enough, but in comparison with The Galeon hotel that I stayed at in Sitges, the space, amenities and furnishings/finishes did not compare, especially considering the fact that it cost double per night than The Galeon. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. When I first arrived, the gentleman who welcomed me gave me a quick tour of the Barcelona map and circled all of the places of interest in minutes, which was amazing to me. The breakfast that was included was OK but definitely not great...cereal, hard boiled eggs, some fruit and pastries, etc. The included juice/coffee was terrible. It cost an additional 1 Euro for an espresso, and an additional 3 for fresh orange juice! As for the massage service the hotel offers for an additional 50 Euros, although not as strong as a massage as I like, it was a nice way to spend a relaxing morning after days of walking around the city. I was so relaxed I almost fell asleep on the massage table. Overall, I think I would return if I could get a better rate on the room (granted this was Easter weekend), but I think next time I'll explore a different area of the city and perhaps spend less on the hotel so I can spend more on other things.

It was the first time to stay here and we stayed 6nights. Price, cleanliness, location(!!) were very satisfying. but there was a renovation right next to the hotel so we should have breakfast quite early. Breakfast was good enough and Boqueria(few steps from hotel) opens 8:00 so we sometimes go out to have new menu. Let me say this hotel is quite new, unknown but reasonable place.
