    Location of this hotel is excellent, right next to metro station and 10 mins walk to Las Ramblas, very clean, ample breakfast. However there is no coffee or tea making facilities and limited English tv channels.

    Very good location only 15m distance from Underground. Direct line to Sagrada Familia. Near a excellent Tapas cervesaria. Nice swimingpool on the roof and a very nice view over the city. 10 minutes walking to Las Ramblas - perfect.

    Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this
    gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an
    excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic

    record stores, second hand shops, and student bars
    that seem to light up the streets day and night. The
    rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day
