3 nights pleasant stay
Reviewed 27 february, 2023
A very pleasant stay, we arrived late at night and the woman on reception was polite and spoke great English. Our room was basic but clean and tidy and that's all we wanted and expected. The hotel was fairly quiet, I have read a few reviews about loud music but we had a room at the front of the hotel only 1 floor up and I can honestly say we heard nothing and got 3 good nights sleep. The hotel is situated quite far away from the main part of Barcelona where many of the tourist locations are but its about a 5 minute walk to the nearest tube station and it's all easy enough to navigate so you are there in no time at all. Every night we stayed we retired back to the hotel about 7 or 8pm we sat in the bar area until about 11pm and had a few relaxing drinks. The two people on the bar a young girl and an older gentleman where absolutely fantastic and I cannot thank them enough for making us feel welcome, they bent over backwards to make us feel at home and served us drinks to our table as well as supplying us with some complimentary nuts which never go a miss after a few beers. All in all it was perfect for our long weekend break. Thank you.
Loud music and drunk people all night long

Hotel has a night club and Friday night and Saturday night we couldn't sleep until 3 am due to music and drunk people shouting in the courtyard. Checking out, we were not the only visitors complaining, and the receptionist just smiled and said "yes". This was my second worst hotel experience, first one being a road construction in front of a hotel! I do not recommend.
Veeery far from the city centre and there aren't shops around

I would give it 2 stars, but gladly I had a good sleep because of the normal pillows. So, basically, I was pissed off because the internet didn't work as fast as they had promised. I urgently had to do some work on my laptop and I had to wait a lot to download some documents it took literally 3-4 hours to have the work done for some things that could be done in an hour. I waited a lot for the pages that I was working on to load. It was impossible to watch some Netflix on my laptop as we couldn't use their badly placed TV. Our bed was in the middle and there was a tiny screen TV placed near the left-corner window so no chance of using that. Also, whenever we wanted to eat, the restaurant was closed. Still don't understand when was the time when that restaurant was opened. We heard that the restaurant kept opening and close many times at different times of the day, so we were lost in that schedule. Extremely annoying that you barely find a shop near the hotel. So, we had to eat breakfast in the city center. Also, I found disgusting bugs near the toilet in the bathroom. I think it was way too expensive for this hotel and it doesn't worth the money. The staff needs to be more trained as it was nearly impossible to communicate. English is not that hard. The ceiling where is placed "a kind of aircon" seem to fall any minute. I was annoyed by the fact that I couldn't control the heat, they "gave" us heat whenever they wanted even though there are buttons to press...so those are for nothing, don't bother. I was freezing for many nights...We stayed for 10 days. There was a fridge, but it was annoyingly tiny, so tiny that they would ask you for money to put your own food in it...I feel that this hotel doesn't deserve 4 stars. I would give them 2 stars or 3 max. I'm glad still that it was silence, but there aren't too many benefits.

Booking my stay was a bit hectic as i had 8 days stay but had to book 3 different bookings at different times to be able to complete my dates. That was not fun but eventually was done. I stayed one night, first night in a family room which had two rooms and was located at the corner of the building which was with great view and natural light. The bathroom was amazingly wide, bright and pleasant. The other nights i had to move to a single room, although i was not happy with having two single beds in it which was really uncomfortable. The new room had lots of plumbing issues in terms of the sanitary fitting such as toilet seat and faucets shaking and not well fixed. Also, cleaning needed a bit more attention although everything was clean. The location and access is superb and the value for money is very good. Was especially happy with the vending machine on the floor which had munchies and drinks at reasonable price. I will surely stay there again as the food was also nice although the menu was limited.
Not worth… everyone is gentle (sarcasm) until….
