Auto Hogar Hotel Barcelona Reviews
Superb location for a reasonable price! Sep 14, 2011
This hotel is perfect for everyone who wants the best location and doesn't care that much about luxury. Luxury you will not get in this place, but the location is simply superb!
The rooms have everything you need and nothing more than that. My room had 2 single beds, two little tables as night stands, a desk, tv and a bathroom with a sink and shower. Also a bath but we couldn't use it because there was no plug. The rooms also had a big closet where you can stow some things, but it was mostly stuffed with blankets. I guess that would be nice during the colder season :-). The room was a bit noisy. We found sometimes at 3 o clock there was still a lot of activity. We didn't care though, because that was around the time we would finish our planning for the next day or even just came back to the room. In Barcelona you are tended to stay out till late!
The services cover about everything you need, nothing more, nothing less. The rooms are cleaned every day, with clean sheets, clean towels and clean soaps. A breakfast is available in the hotel, but we found it too costly and didn't take it. Once there we found a really cheap supermarket and a sweet bakery where we bought our breakfast before going to town. It was much cheaper and much nicer! (Walk from the hotel to the metro and take the street on the right, There you find a Diá supermarket on the left and a bit earlier a really nice bakery on the right)
We did eat at the restaurant of the hotel though. The food was delicious. I got the bestSpaghettiiBolognesee ever there and the Sangria was great. Do however know that the drinks are what makes your check higher than expected. We payed almost 9 euro's for 1/2 liter of Sangria. This is however quite normal. If you want to eat cheaper, go to the other restaurants next to the hotel. You will find 5 only in the first 20 metres! The hotel also gives some advice for sight seeings but I don't think you really need it in Barcelona. Everything is so easy...
Handy but curious about this hotel is the garage inside it. Handy is that you can use the parking, but curious is that you have to go through the garage to get to your room. It is not big though, and also not inconvenient. Just... curious...
As I mentioned in the beginning the location is superb! It might be a little noisy, but if you can handle it I woulddefinitelyy recommend this for the location. The metro Paral-lel is only 1 minute walking from the hotel and has the L2 and L3 metro lines which can take you about everywhere. The haven and the Rambla are on walking distance and there are nice restaurants and cafe's all around in theneighbourhoodd were you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch, dinner and in betweens. There are alsotheaters very close and you can do shopping, although you might want to go to the Rambla and Barri Gotic for this, which is also very close to this hotel!
Overall I was really happy choosing this hotel. I would only not recommend it to people who want luxury or who hate a noisy neighbourhood.

Affordable and central Dec 12, 2010
Affordable, centrally located just a short strawl from La Rambla.
Rooms simple but clean, beds ok. Breakfast ok. Make sure you do not have a room at the front side of the hotel since it's located on a busy street
