Very Good 8.0
Funky budget hotel close to Barcelona’s best bits!
A great place to stay in a funky neighbourhood away from the usual tourist traps. Only 30 mins walk to the Sagrada and 20 mins walk to Barri Gotic. Literally 5 mins walk to the hip bars, cafes and thrift shops of El Raval. Great at night for drinking and eating. Raquel on reception was kind and helpful. Room 4 overlooked the main street but the traffic noise didn’t creep into the room. Unlike the noise from other inconsiderate guests. It was clean, modern and well maintained. Far exceeded expectations.

Good base in the city - close to most attractions
The senora on the front desk that Sunday morning was very helpful and accommodating (speaks good English if you don't know Spanish). We were helped store our heavy luggage prior to our check-in later in the day. The room given us was large and airy (so it was so easy to arrange our 2 large suitcases on the Pergo-like floors) for the and airy with 2 smaller beds pushed together to make a single queen bed. The sheets were clean as was the entire room. The bathroom was OK & clean with good hot & cold water pressure although the shower head with hose has no sliding height adjustment (fixed height) & is inconvenient for someone small. A safe is provided under the small closet. There's a coffee machine near the front desk but it's 1 Euro per but an electric kettle was provided in the room - just make sure you bring some "instant-stuff" that needs hot water - noodles, coffee, tea, etc. - if you're on a tight budget. To save power during the winter, most hotels in Barcelona including this (same with the first one we stayed in near Sagrada Familia) have their air-cons' ability to cool a room turned off --it's just the fans that's working. We were assigned a room with a small balcony and had ample views of the Gran Via below and we did some people watching while having our drinks. Many hotels to choose from when booking a place in Barcelona, but I'll have this place on top on my list.
