cute little hotel May 07, 2012
The best thing about this hotel is the location! It's next to the famous La Rambla which makes your stay in Barcelona much better! There is always good food right across the street :)

The hotel is very small, but cute. It has small balconies which makes it really authentic. I loved it!

When we slept in the hotel it was very very cold outside and also inside our room. We got a heater from the service desk which made our much more comfortable.

The breakfast isn't very special, but that's almost never the case in hotels.

The employees are very kind. We always made a good conversation with the man behind the desk. He was funny and very kind. Loved our stay! I would definitively go back!

Nice hotel near the ramblas Mar 15, 2011
I got a little later at the hotel then expected.

But that wasn't a problem because the hotel has a 24- hour service.

I checked in and found out that there was an elevator to my relief.

I've read in the brochure that there was no elevator,

so that was a nice suprise.

The room is fine but if you're going to write or work at the desk they've put in, you may have a little trouble with the space.

Because the chair reaches the bedside if you pull it back.

The breakfast is simple but good. There's a small amount of pastries and croissants/pistolets.

There's a juice/cereal/coffie corner.

The hotel also has wi-fi.

You can store your suitcase etc at the reception if you have an late flight when you check out.

I would recommend this hotel if you want cheal but good.

Great location! Gay. Mar 29, 2009
If you are looking for a cheap hotel in the best location in Barcelona this is it. No elevator, no frills, just a small, surprisingly quiet hotel 2 blocks from La Rambla. I ended up befriending "Luz" the guy at the front desk. A little too friendly, but I am a sucker for those Spanish men. My room was TINY. Clean enough. Bathroom was adequate. But you cannot beat the price of this place! And did I mention the GREAT location. Really cannot get any better. Of course, I think there were some people selling drugs right outside the hotel, but they didn't bother me at all. I would not have guessed this was a gay hotel until Luz told me. I should have guessed when I saw some exceptionally good looking men in the lobby. I only ate the free breakfast one day, not that great, but again, great price!
