Nice stay!
This hotel was great! The room was quaint and had everything I needed. It was in a prime location and the staff was really friendly. My flight arrived really early so they let me store my bags on-site for free which was great! Breakfast was delicious and a great people watching spot too. I do wish that there was another lock on the doors though. I was traveling alone and people kept accidentally knocking on my door in the middle of the night. I would've felt more secure if so.

great location
this is a wonder hotel/hostel. real close to las ramblas. see photo. the breakfast was great. However....if you have a big/heavy suitcase, you do have to carry it up a flight of stairs before you get to reception. otherwise, there is a lift to your room.

Great stay. Fantastic location beside the metro. Rooms were quiet considering the noise outside. Rooms and beds were perfect for what we needed, small but comfy. Staff v friendly and the breakfast was a nice option in the mornings

3 nights with daughter
Located just off La Rambla, the noise is noticable. The lobby is a walk-up a flight of stairs, difficult with a heavy suitcase. Rooms are small. Breakfast was good and with reasonable hours (8-11). Hotel is well located for walking to beach, waterfront, museums, bars, restaurants.
