8/10 Very good

Excellent value for money but no vibe
Very practical and clean hotel. Perfectly comfortable and a nice view of the Barcelona hills from the window. The pool was nice, not a proper pool, but better that the other central Barcelona hotels I stayed at, which were tiny and very shallow. The staff were exceptionally helpful. The breakfast was just ok but for the very cheap price of the room, I ate it as it was such good value for money . The room was a little bit clinical. I felt like I was actually back at Uni and it lacked the lovely authentic Spanish feel that I have experienced at other properties. I did not like the area. Too business like and very quiet and the restaurants were more expensive and proper than the cheap and cheerful places I usually frequent (Spain always cheap for eating out is this is not a big deal, just personal preference). I personally would rather stay close to the beach or otherwise inland somewhere traditional and authentic. I chose this hotel as I was working and it had air conditioning and decent WiFi. The amazing price and pool were just a bonus. Can’t complain! Only the district would put me off staying there again. No vibe!
One of the nicer parts of this district.
Basic but comfortable.
A room with a view.

Schönes Studentenwohnheim
Sehr schöne und grosse eigene Wohnung mit Balkon im Dachgeschoss. Fitness und Pool inklusive. Auch ruhig die ganze Nacht - einzig das Frühstück besteht nur aus wenig Käse, Wurst und Joghurt sowie Brot.

Un excelente lugar en todo
Estuve varada en Barcelona sin poder volver a mi país por el COVID y allí me cuidaron, me escucharon y me trataron como si estuviera en casa y hasta mejor! Todos, desde la recepción hasta la cocina y, sobre todo la administración del lugar fueron cálidos y amorosos conmigo y solidarios con mi situación. Un lugar cómodo, limpio y muy bien atendido!

Zona tranquila. Todo a mano. Personal amable
Simpáticos y agradables las chicas de recepción. Habitación con lo justo, pero bien. No había TV. Aire acondicionado y Wifi perfectos. Zona bastante tranquila, pero cerca de diagonal, con metros y buses. Supermercados cerca. Desayuno bien. Todo muy tranquilo… Si siguen así repetiré.
