    Good hotel for the price. Interesting, considered design within the rooms but I wouldn’t recommend going unless you are a couple. The shower is in the middle of the room with little privacy. The coloured lighting also makes it a more ‘romantic’ atmosphere. Comfortable bed,...More

    Stayed here for three nights to do a spot of sightseeing and some R and R. The hotel is well positioned close to the many bars and restaurants nearby in the El Born district. This is a wonderful area with a great deal of character...More

    We had a great stay here, rooms are kooky with the shower in the middle of the room and funky lighting :) It was also really great to have a small terrace to dry our swimming clothes, towels and sit out in the evenings before...More

    El Born / La Ribera
    The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
    the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
    this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
    enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
    places that live and breathe such exciting energy
    regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
    seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
    city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
