Took airport express bus to center of Barcelona (very cheap - around 6 euros pp). Walked to hotel just off Las Ramblas about 3 blocks. Hotel reception VERY friendly. Room basic, clean, quiet area. Use their breakfast option but select when you check in for discount (9 euros per day). Full breakfast buffet & best price around. Staff very helpful for directions & recommendations to eating options nearby. The hotel price was unbelievably cheap (around 70 euros per night). Note - The hotel fronts what looks like an alley but is actually a street. Couldn't find it on our hand held GPS but came close. Full day hop on/off bus is great option for a comprehensive way to see the city (22 euros for over 65, 27 euros for adult). We plan on returning to Spain, again, & will definitely book our initial stay at this hotel.
Booked this hotel to attend a conference in Barcelona and this hotel was really pleasant inside, comfy beds, local to most of the things you need. Couldnt be happier with the whole event. Will definately stay there again

"Comfortable, clean, friendly hotel close to public"
Could not have been happier. Room has plenty of space and all the amenities. Clean and neat with friendly, helpful staff. One block from metro and airport bus stop, an easy walk to the center of the city. Safe neighborhood near cafés, grocery and other shopping. Very comfortable bed in a quiet room.
Five of us stayed there for 2 nights and we all were thrilled with our choice of hotel. Very modern, clean and well located. We had a room with a very large terrace. It was wonderful after a day of activities to relax on the terrace with a glass of wine.
Chose this one mostly because price and location, as well as excellent reviews. Boy, was it right! The location is prime, you can see it on the map yourself. As for the hotel - rooms are basic and not large, but big enough to be comfortable. Air conditioning supreme - not only you get an AC unit, but also a huge old-fashioned fan hanging from the celling, which is not only fun but also practical. Room is equipped with all the basic stuff apart of the fridge. It is a little tarnished and in need of refurbishing, a few dead mosquitos spots here and there, signs of wear and tear in the shower and on the walls and so on, but in the same time it was very hygienic, so if you are not too fussy you wouldn't mind. Room is double-glazed, blocking any sound from the outside, it also have supreme blinds.
I would mention the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff specifically. I didn't see such attitude in the bigger and better hotels. They went all the way to please us. Even when we officially checked out, they helped us with a few fresh towels and a shower when we suddenly returned to the hotel as our plans changed and they didn't charge.
Ah, and their free Internet is great, too - watch your Netflix etc.
The only thing I would not recommend are the breakfasts, until you are in a hurry. It's a very boring continental set of goods from the fridge, you would find tons of places around that would offer you better for 8 euros.
Overall - great little place. Would certainly recommend.
