We would be at the next Barcelona visit book this hotel again, it was not luxurious, but clean and friendly. Price-performance ratio was definitely in order. What do you want? Ok, if you are looking for flaws searched, one has in any case also found (the furniture was not the newest), but so pingelig we are not! J for someone, the luxury vacation to make would like, it is definitely not recommended, but for us it handed all times! And who neither spanish/catalan still speaks english and much value on german speaking staff, should, where appropriate, choose another place. wlan ... was in the room for free. For me it looked in such a way, that it on each room its own internet hotspot is, which made it no problems with bad front desk was. This observation i could however only in our floor (floor 0) make, however i assume, that it in the other floors will be comparable to. Breakfast we didn't use, but found the breakfast in a room without windows. We would rather recommend in one of the cafes nearby for breakfast. Guest structure we couldn't rate, many spaniards were, for a 'sleep' not seems to exist. Furthermore, there was a free safe in each room. If someone this safe not familiar, can also right next to the front desk in the safe somewhat deposit. read hotel review

    Staff were friendly, spoke very good english. No one spoke german the staff, but that was not so bad. Rooms were cleaned every day, including exchange of towels etc. We had problems with the safe on the first day, which is why we on the first day the safe at the reception could use. From 2. day it worked again - apparently had the employee only a safe card wrong issued.

  • Location
    5.0

    The hotel is located about 10-15 - minute walk away from the sagard família, a bus stop right outside the door and the nearest u-bahn line (line l2) is also not far away. Directly before the door there are 3 supermarkets, but the opening hours not been developed. Felt they had to be desired, if you 'want' had, but one was mostly always open. The hotel is centrally located, as fare cities also gladly to foot, still a few collected 'distances' Walking distance to foot: Metro station 'monumental' : 5-10 minutes Sagard família: 10-15 minutes Beach: 30 minutes La Rambla: 30-40 minutes Placa espania: 60-70 minutes Taxi to the airport : 40-50 Euro.

    The room was quite small, with a small mini bar, a small flat screen tv and a comparatively large daylight bath. So it was enough for a city break, in which one usually anyway not so much time spent at the hotel. In the bathroom there was a hairdryer installed, but if you thick or have long hair, you should prefer its bring your own hair-dryer. Bathroom was clean and also had a bidet. Furthermore, it also has a shower, in the emergency can bathe (a bit smaller than a usual bathtub) The tv program was limited to spanish channels and the Disney Channel, the fortunately about 95% of the series in the english original purpose. wi-fi (even with good performance!), heating/air conditioning and safe were free. We had a room in the 'basement' (floor 0) which initially very skeptical made. But we had still plenty of natural light in the room. I misunderstood me even a, that a bit outside the city noise ( polizeisirene, horns, etc.) is protected. Rooms were very clairaudient, especially, if something in the hallway/next door took place. Here you have to hope for quiet neighbors. We had spanish guests in the neighboring rooms, which unfortunately were not. But after what i've read, it is a usual problem in spanish hotels.

- near sagard familia - underground monumental two blocks away - next door and opposite a small supermarket - ok hotel, just already getting old - everything clean and tidy - unfortunately somewhat clairaudient = neighbors slamming the doors, very noisy - glories shopping centre, not far away - breakfast adequate but not great - reception depending on the time of the day nice and less nice (the lady in the morning is the nicest) - 1-bed room is ample for the size - closet without drawers-difficult for a longer stay - the tv no german channels - mini bar ... available (but very expensive) - super air conditioning in the room read hotel review

Conclusion: even though it Barcelona on a main road is, you can tell in the rooms nothing from the noise and bustle! It is a shame, that no direct parking are available (parking garage nearby). Otherwise a small, but fine hotel, with really very friendly staff. read hotel review

The hotel is located in a quiet side street. On the main street, the 2 minutes away on foot is, drives the bus directly to all the attractions (place de la catalunya, university, La Rambla etc.) The monumental is 3 minutes on foot, the Sagrada Familia in 10 minute on foot. From there also runs the popular hopt on hop bus (city tour) the route red, to the again and again on and off. A supermarket is directly next to the hotel, in the still small things for his minibar can buy. Also a market is 5 minutes away ... on foot easy to reach. The staff is friendly and courteous. Breakfast is plentiful and delicious, the rooms clean and the free safe quite convenient. All in all, we would stay there again. read hotel review
