Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel ideally located
Our experience of this hotel and Barcelona from start to finish was nothing short of ab fab!! The location of the hotel in Born area was the best, with great restaurants, great bars and many of the sights were within walking distance. The beach was only a 20-minute walk. The reception staff were so helpful which made our stay exceptional...we cant wait to return which we intend to do next summer.

Great location, very friendly, helpful staff.
El Born is a great location for sight seeing. The hotel was comfortable and we loved it's quirkiness. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We shall certainly stay here again.

Warmly Welcoming and Quirky Little Hotel
The reception staff are marvellous, very welcoming. Gave us two maps and highlighted interesting locations and streets for us to visit. The room is a little worn, but other than that everything works. Spacious and powerful shower, comfortable bed and quirky design (you can change the colour of the lights). There is a shared common room, rather than personal tea/coffee facilities, with plentiful options and cozy furnishings. The area is a little off the beaten path, but still has lots to explore, many choices for a quick bite.

Cute Hotel, Great Location, A/C was broken
When I checked in my A/C wasn't working, but I was told there maintenance guy was gone for the day so the best they could do was bring me a fan. Then the next day, when it still wasn't fixed all they could tell me was, "we're all booked up, so we can't move you to another room." And they made an off-hand comment about how Americans like their rooms cold -- no, I just prefer it not to be 80 degree still air in my room. Aside from 2 nights of terrible sleep, it was conveniently located, and it was quiet. All the ropes in the hall and dark lighting felt more like I was walking thru a nightclub than a hotel, but it didn't really bother me - just seemed a strange decor choice. I appreciated the complimentary water & coffee in the lounge area.

Nice place to stay in BCN.
This hotel is in a great location for seeing the sites of Barcelona. Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff. A few of the “chic” features were not the most functional. A little less chic and and a little less basic and it would be a little more user friendly.
