Great location, good food, friendly staff! They are very nice and they will try to accommodate your needs. Simple and affordable place to stay in Barcelona.

Booked hotel for October 18th, 2019, it coincided with the worst days of riots and protests that Barcelona has witnessed in recent times. Burning of vehicles and trash containers, clashes between police and rock throwing protesters. Total anarchy, called the hotel to cancelled booking due to safety concerns as the protests were very close to hotel. The hotel denied my cancellation as it had to be 48hrs prior. I tried to reason with them, explaining to them the exceptional circumstances and that I was not going to put my family at risk. They refused to cancel the stay. I will never recommend a place that has not regard for the safety of its guests.

Location, 24hr buffet. Comfortable beds and very quiet.

We were in a "comfort room" that looked to be newly refurbished. It was roomy for an European hotel. The location of the hotel couldn't be better. It is situated on La Rambla and a short walk to Placa Catalunya and the airport bus. There is a metro station just across the street. The 24 hour food was a great bonus. We stay here every time we come to Barcelona.

The hotel is in a perfect location. It is short distance from metro, aero airport bus, and the hop on and off bus. I felt very safe travelling by myself. The staff were all so pleasant and accommodating. The room was clean,newly renovated,and quiet. The free snacks were more like a meal. The breakfast alone offered so many options. It was a nice way to start the day and save the euros that I would have spent elsewhere. I will stay here again for sure when I return to Barcelona. This hotel was one of the highlights of my trip.

Great location and clean and comfortable. Very close to airport bus, too.

Not a good experience with the hotel staff. No hotel information on how to contact the front desk. Needed to see the front desk for service. The staff at front desk said dial 707 for front desk. The following day, contacted the front desk by dialing 707, I've been waiting for the service but they told me I dialed the other hotel! Not a good experience with the staff but over all my hotel stay was good specially the buffet all day!

perfect location. food and drinks available all day long. vivienne was very helpful to all questions asked, will recommend and stay again when in barcelona

It cannot be closer to everything and for the price, it was a nice surprise to see they had free food and drinks including beer and wine all day (may not be the best quality, but it was free!)
