The breakfast is really good. The Hotel is situated very well, you can easily reach many interesting spots in Barcelona. Many Shops and Restaurants in Walking distance

The single rooms are really very small and even for one Person too small. In my room, the Aircondition did not work and produced only hot air. Water did not Keep constant temperature. Overall, the Hotel is clean but Needs some maintenance

perfect location . Close to Sagrada familia, close to the plaza Cataluna.

Old fashioned Hotel. It definately requires recostruction. Window only to inner shaft. AC did not work so it was too warm in the room. However all necessary for one night was in.

Very well situated hotel, rooms are well endowed and the price is competitive.

The hotel staff was unhelpful in a insurance matter. The English is not their strong point. The breakfast is good, but I had a problem one day.

Free W-LAN connection.

They offer some rooms separated only by light connecting doors, i.e. you notice all noise from adjacent rooms.

Hotel location is good - close to some Gaudi buildings, close to Metro station, and good walk to the center.

Please mention the distance to Las Ramblas and Catalunya Pl. in the description. These are also the main points of interest, but they were not mentioned. Also it is useful to position the hotel in relation to nearest Metro station.
