Cleaning I can hear a lot of noises and sounds through the wals but this problem it's in entire Spain I think !
We had to stay another day in the hotel, although there was a match and it was a higher price, they did not take advantage and asked for the higher price. This made us feel happy and confident. We did not have to look for another hotel in the range which may be a reason I'd prefer this hotel again and again.
good location noisy in the evening, too much smell of smoke, most smelly I have ever stayed.
All we needed was a clean room with an attached bath in Barcelona as we were there to sightsee and not spend time at the hotel. This hotel was great value for money and was only one stop away from the Segreda Familia. It is located a short walk from Barcelona's fabulous metro system and there is a FANTASTIC little bakery just round the corner for a quick breakfast.
Location is great for tourist, who wants to visit most famous sightseeings of Barcelona. Next to the metro station (7 mins). Too thin walls, I could hear everything's going on in next rooms.In front of the hotel too expensive italian restaurant :)
the friendly staff teh noise from athor rooms
Staff was excellent, very helpful Walls are like paper, can hear everything the neighbours do. Internet did not work half the time. Tv signals so poor that only the audio came in on cnn.
Staff were very courteous and helpful.The location of the hotel was good. The hotel was too echoey and noisy to be comfortable.Window looked out onto flats which were very close so overlooked-which was not ideal.Therewere no net curtains so we couldn't draw the curtains and hence the room was permanently dark.I comnplained to the staff about this as I felt this was unacceptable.
Everything was ok I didn't like breakfast, because i found someone's hair in bread. Also I could hear my neighbours breathing in a next room - no sound isolation.5
Friendly staff, very helpful. Great locatioin. The breakfast was a little over-priced with a more limited selection to when I stayed a year ago.
Situation. Helpful staff, except ordering of taxis, which may not be their fault Soulless restaurant, altho staff excellent
lack of leisure facilities
Pleasant staff, nice deco at the lobby Rooms too small, unconfortable. Bad and expensive breakfast. Unatractive location. No wireless at the rooms, despite what was described at the site.
The services & Hotel staff
Shower was excellent
It was convenient for the tube. The room was dark, the beds were uncomfortable and seemed more like temporary beds than proper ones (including the twin beds - we had a third bed in the room), the hotel had no character or warmth and was certainly not up to the standard we would expect from a 4* hotel, having stayed in several recently. There were no tea or coffee making facilities in the room and when we asked for a cup of coffee at 4 pm on Saturday we were told the cafeteria was closed but he would make me one if I really wanted.
hall design bathroom
Great staff who always open to help. Great location and quality for small price attached. Th eonly negative is lack of tv channels in room, suppose to be 30 got 2, but this wasnt major thing as barcelloan is so good dont need to watch tv
Verry helpful receptionist.Well equipped bathroom. Lots of restaurants nearby. Noise from road. Windows should be double glazed. Small room. Not really a hotel, more a bed and breakfast location.
Poor Internet service, just one machine, and awfully expensive.
-Simpathy of staff -Location -Very clean rooms with good facilities -Noisy room
the location the room is tiny, and it was incredibly warm inside
The reliability and helpfulness of the staff no breakfast
great location and very friendly workers over there. They can speak very good English
Good location for sights. No natural light in room as only window was overlooked by flats. Would have preferred room on the front with balcony.
Great Location, very clean.
I was literally there for just the night, but what a beautiful hotel, the design is very modern, satellite TV was good and the room was so cosy. Staff were helpful and location for me was good. Safe area, not too far from some of the famous touristic sights and a bar just downstairs for a late meal or a quick drink. Would definately stay there again and would recommend it. Again, no one wants to spend too much time in a room when traveling so for the few hrs at night and in the morning, it was a sight for sore eyes :D
Super 2 star hotel that didn´t even feel like a 2 star, more of a 3 star plus. The service was great, reception and waiters in cafe were great, location is great, metro really close (Sant Pau metro), many small grocery stores nearby, easy access to center of city, free internet, etc. If you´re looking for a hotel that deserves its price, choose this one. Next time, this is the only hotel I will stay at in Barcelona. :) Nothing at all.
Excellent value and great location.rich breakfast.
Well informed and helpfull reception staff
Great location accross form the Amrey Sant Pau Hospital (be sure to visit the grounds) and plenty of restaurants nearby.
The front desk staff during our stay were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Nothing was too mych trouble for them. The room with terrace and view over the old hospital was great. Slightly odd that you had to pay for breakfast separately to the serving staff, not but rally a problem.
The staff was great and the hotel was very clean The bed and pillows were too hard
Nice, clean and simple.
friendly personal. good location.clean room.the amenities in the bathroom and also the candys all over ;-) the rumor of the cars, street...
The rooms were very comfortable and had all the basic needs of our trip.
great hotel, a lot of facilities for small amount of money, staff are very helpful, kindnes, hotel is near sagrada familia, near metro - very pleasant hotel
Quiet hotel even though it was fully booked. Air con did not work. Shower head would not stay in one place. Could have got it fixed but was only there for two nights so could not be bothered with the hassle.
good location very close to Metro, 20 min to city center. When you like open window, be prepared for noise from the road.
Clear hotel Location - to far from center
Location in the hills No quick and easy and reasonably priced food.
location - quiet place, very close to metro (you can get to the most of the city attractions in ~10-15min) some small details in the bathroom (e.g near tap or between bathtube and wall) looked a bit too old and not properly cared - which would be acceptable, but not for a 4stars hotel
breakfast, enviroment friendly no sport facility
Convenient, clean and well decorated Restaurant had no personality and the food did not live up to the pretentiousness. Menus were not in rooms and those that were were in the room didnot apply in the restaurant.
very close to the metro station and bus station. Very clean and safe. There is a supermarket very close to the hotel. Very celan. Truly 4 stars.
A good, clean comfortable hotel. Good breakfast. Quite close to the metro with which it is only a 20 minute trip to the city center. We missed facilities for making a cup of coffee or tea in the room.
Being close to train station No late night food options. No ice machine vending machines did not work well. AC in room was terrible
It was easy to check in and the room was decently sized. Staff was nice. The bathroom was large and clean. Very close to the metro but to nothing else. The air conditioning didn't work at all. You could hear it blowing but nothing. Also no fan in bathroom so after the first shower the room was unbareable. We opened the window but couldn't fall asleep with it open because the highway was so loud. The outlet next to my bed had something stuck in it so I couldn't use it to charge my things. Walls are paper thin, we were talking low volume right as we were falling asleep and our neighbors started banging on the wall. We were quiet after and heard them talking.
Good clean room with nice beds. With windows closed no noise from the nearby highway. Metrostation at 200 meters, brings you to Catalunya (main transfer station) or one stop further at Liceu (at the middle of La Rambla) in 15 minutes. There is absolutely nothing to do in the neighborhood of the hotel. There is a little store at carrer de Juan de Mena where one could buy some bottled water/sodas and snacks, but no recreational stuff what so ever.
We thought the location was easy access to lots of good walking tours. Staff were always friendly and helpful. nice to have a deck.
Close to Sagrada Famiglia and to a lot of shops and restaurants. good value for money Hire english speaking personnel
The location was really good, 2min away from blue metro line and 5min from yellow metro line.The staff was gentle and the room spacy and always clean.The price was excellent. The fact that noone spoke english.really hard to communicate with the staff.
nice room, spacious bathroom, good location
Nice and clean room, with terrace with a nice view, nice staff, though speaks only spanish. For the money I paid it was really good.
Location not far from Metro station. Friendly reception, but you have to have your dictionary ready, if you need something. Small, but clean room, nice balkony, large bathroom, excellent water supply. The beds were comfortable, but not so good for a couple in love ;-) WLAN was functioning well in our room. We had to buy a hair dryer after the second night, because there was no free one in the hotel.
Quiet and clean rooms TV remote costs extra
the center of city
We liked the peace and quiet and the Gaudi avenue(1 min walk from hotel ) that lead straight to the Sagrada Familia. Did not like the overhead lamp that did not work and hotel staff attitude.
None of the staff members knew English.
price very good braekfast poor,but for the price....cofee good!
The breakfast is great. And the internet is free.
It was a haven of peace in a very busy city as if the village of Portmeirion in Wales had been transplanted to Barcelona.
the room is so narrow..
hotel staff were very kind and helpful. If you are not looking for something luxury this accomodation is good with private bathroom and breakfast included. 10 minute walk to get the metro and then about 10 minutes from the center
The people who were working in the hostel were very friendly and helpful. Cleaning in the hostel was very good. Hostel was not situated to turistic area, which was wonderful! Nevertheless it was very near to metro stations, so moving around the city was easy. The only thing that was a little uncomfortable was that the size of the room was quite small.
We spent there a wonderful week. Good location (close to Sagrada Família and metro stations of line 4 and 5 but not in the crowded touristic area), the rooms were cleaned every day and the staff was lovely, friendly and helpful.
Pleasant staff especially Silvia
Staff very friendly and helpful, good price, clean rooms, near tube. The internet wifi didn't reach up to the second floor, so there was the need to connect in the lobby, although seats were provided.
It is quite nice located hostal - well managed.
The location is great nearby a parc with pine trees, the access to the subway (metro MUNDET) is easy, the breakfast and dinner buffet are excellent. The staff is nice and efficient.Facilities are offered in the lobby (coffee, sandwiches, internet) I did not like : the poor acoustic isolation of the room, the absence of signs to encourage people to remain silent after midnight, the absence of management of clients by profile (mixing rooms allocated to young tourists, spanish students, older people, solo travellers). Depending on the neighbours you will either have a good night sleep or no other choice than moving to another room in the middle of the night.
Value for money
The free breakfast I hated the location, service, and the room. Extremely difficult to find. if you stay here, get off of the metro and go up the hill towards university follow the road past the gates. my shower did not drain and when I told the front desk her response was all showers in barcelona dont drain. There was hair on the toliet and the floor was dirty. When I explained our situation to the reception they gave me the run around. We immediately checked out and stayed at a hotel not too much more which shower drained wonderful and was given excellent service.
the breakfast was good. the location is good, 5min. walk + 10-20min. metro to most of the attraction points in city. free internet. suitable for young people mostly. sometimes very very noisy with young students screaming and running on the corridors, even at midnight, though generally very quiet and peaceful facility.
Location. Rooms should be cleaned more often. Towels changed as well.
Comfort, internet, breakfast, no noise.
the rooms are daily cleaned , there is wired internet at the rooms but I had buy the cable with 15 euros , the staff at the reception are not helpful reception staff
Good breakfast and quite good localisation to the metro. Tourists should be located on the different,separate floor than students.Two nights were terrible,noises,screaming on the hall.It is not good hotel for families with children.
Location is great -- quiet neighborhood, but close to metro and bus. For the price, it is wonderful but not a luxury hotel. Basic accomodation, with fantastic breakfast buffet included, easy access to the city and all touristic sites. Very efficient front desk staff who speak English. Wired internet access is free in the room, but you need to have your own cable. There are also a couple of terminals in the lobby. These are frequently busy in the evening. This is a university residence, so it is basic accomodation. Families might not find the milieu ideal. Minimal sound-proofing, so occasionally loud talking from the hallways. The breakfast buffet offers a good variety of basic foods for almost all tastes, but it is a cafeteria serving many residents so the offerings are not gourmet. I think the only complaint we might make is that there is not much fresh fruit on offer (only oranges the days we were there). But there are many markets and restaurants a short metro or bus ride away. We did not find any restaurants or food markets within easy walking distance.
clean, student atmosphere, free internet, free open parking
The place itself is nice, the food and the room also ok they did not clean the room during my stay (I stayed 6 nights)
nice area, great view from my room on the top floor
Quite big room and bath. Friendly staff. Free internet usage. The water temperature changes randomly in the shower. Very unpleasant and dangerous.
It was chilly at breakfast time - the breakfast room leads directly into the small foyer with an automatic door so it was a bit draughty.
For us, it was a convenient position - within walking distance of our son's apartment. The breakfast area is a bit chilly - I think because the adjacent entrance lobby has a front door with auto sensors which seem ultra sensitive and the door opens with the least movement - and then the wind whistles in.
Clean, easy access to Metro, comfortable. Hotel is great. Just watch your purse in Barcelona especially on the Metro.pick pockets abound.
- friendly and kind personnel - good isolation of the walls (despite school, hospital and traffic almost no noise in the room) - metro station just a few minutes away
Hotel was very clean and comfortable. Hotel was too far from tourist attractions.
Its position, near underground and near Sagrada Familia
Very friendly, clean and in a safe district, near 3 Metro stations. Good sized rooms for the price.
Good location, good price (53 euro per night). Чисто, близко к метро, недорого, новая мебель
The location The Ac didn't work and it smells
the view from the window and the quietness of the area, also relatively near to the metro station.....just a walking distance it is somehow fr from the city center
Staff V helpfull
the curtains provided complete dark and the double doubleglassed windows insulated the noise perfectly
Clean, near metro station Far avay from city centre, small window, small room
There should be free internet in the room The bed was too small and too soft; The room is too small for the price. The location is too far from the town
Free parking. close to underground. Bad smell from bathroom
The hotel staff was very kind, quiet location, and It was such a stay for feeling where I live in this town.
My room was small, I expected larger room for this rather high price. But probably it is the feature of Barcelona not of this particular hotel.
Kind staff no
hotel staff was very nice and they offer us a lot of information of Barcelona, the cleanliness of our room was good the beds was small that I expected to be, it is very necessary that the acces on the Internet to be free at the reception
