The hotel was very basic but clean and the location excellent! We knew it would be noisy as it was on a busy street and near a square (public demonstrations etc) but we used ear plugs and had no trouble. The room was cleaned daily

Hotel was good and clean. Staff were very friendly. Location is absolutely brilliant for Gothic quarter and not too far to walk to the beach. Plenty of places nearby to eat and side streets for cosy bars. Also very close to Jaume tube station. Only downside was no air-con, this meant we had to sleep with the windows open and...

My husband and I have stayed all around the UK & EU for 10 wks for similarly priced hotels and this was by far the worst place along the way! The staff were rude and unhelpful, the wifi didn't work, the bed was the most uncomfortable fold out mess, the towels were so thread bare they tore a bit when...

This hotel located in the center of Barcelona. Tourist attractions are nearby (also metro stations), the beach is about ten minutes to walk. it was very loud 24/7. Lots of drunk people on the street all night long. Stuff was great, and helpful. The room and the bathroom was really old furnished, damaged.

I attended the World Mobile Congress where many if not most hotels raised rates by hundreds and 1,000s percent. I want to say a special Thank You to Management not following the sheer greed of their colleague hoteliers - €200 per night when others were charging up to 10/14 times that nightly rate.THANK YOU The hotel has been well reviewed...

It was winter and they ran out of hot water 4 times in 3 days, you couldn't even think on taking a shower in that without getting sick. They also have a poor security system, they get your key everytime you are out and when you come back they give it back without asking who you are. The staffs were...

I'm definitely not a snob when it comes to hotels, but this one was definitely a miss. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was a bug crawling on the walls, and immediately I knew it was going to be a long night. The bathroom isn't bad but the shower is so small you can't help but spray...

Hotel has a tiny lobby and no facilities at all as far as we could tell and they confiscate your room key when you leave the hotel which i never like... However, staff were friendly and the room was really nice, nice street view. Bathroom was nothing special, Barcelona was great. It was good value for what we paid and...

We picked this Hostel as part of our european road trip, and a couple of the group were students so we opted for budget over luxury. This hotel is very basic, but for just over £50 it was good. Great central location, best feature was a balcony!!

Me and my sister stayed in a twin bed-room for 5 nights. The staff was friendly most of the time and their English was ok. Sometimes they spoke Spanish to us and we answered in English. There were a few hairs in the bathroom that didn't belong to us and the only cleaning during our stay seemed to be changing...
