Business / conference

Liked: The room was a small appartment including a small kitchen with a fridge, kitchenware and a stove for cooking, desk for working and a small table. Internet is by wire in the rooms. The place is clean and the breakfast is very good for the overall price.Overall it is a very good option for those seeking a good accomodation at a modest price, specially in a tourist city like Barcelona.

Disliked: There is no AC in the rooms so it may be a bit hot in the summer. There is a WiFi only in the main hall.

Liked: location, cleanliness and spaciousness

Disliked: The location was a good one and hence it was a choice. For the price I paid, they can do a lot better. Upon check in, especially if you have taken an early morning train or flight, doesn't matter, they make you wait till 1.00 pm and no considerations. It s a common sight that people with heavy bags and tired faces waiting at the reception till the clock strikes 1 pm and the process starts. In the mean time you are forced to listen to the loud mouthed person besides the reception whose only job seems to be eating , drinking, singing loud and yapping loud. The room is decent sized and the bathroom is small but ok. The internet wifi works only in the reception area as the rooms don't have wifi, so if you have a ipad or phone, you have to come down everytime. The room is a blazing furnace that you sweat, sweat profusely through out your stay. the fan is a tiny one which despite keeping 2 cm away from me whole day and night, didn't help. There s a kitchen and also breakfast facility which is good and decent. The computer and printer doesn't work. There s an weighing scale if you want to weigh your luggage before your departure. The bus station is really close by and plaza catalunya is a decent 20-30 mt walk. They could do a lot better for the price. The second time I visited Barcelona, for the same price, I got a 4 star property near the airport. Its definitely private and safe, but the overall heat in the room, reception is unbearable. Lots of improvements suggested heat in the room, professional service, consideration if people come a bit early, internet wifi in room and ofcourse stopping of munching and yapping and singing of the person next to the reception.

Liked: the place is at walking distance from the see.....an evening stroll of 1 km takes you there. It is very well connected by both bus and tram. (Welington and Marina are very close). The breakfast is nice. Supermarket Lidl is also very close by (150 m). A small kitchen is very handy.

Disliked: no air conditioner. but the available fan in the room does the job well. The window of the room has only 2 positions, either completely closed or open. It can not be kept tilted. :(. A big minus from my side.
