Liked: It is a modern and new building, well-equiped. It was nice to have a swimming pool on the roof with a view over the city center

Disliked: The design of the room is way too simple> Everything is just white. And they clean the room just once, in the middle of the stay. You're supposed to pay around 7 Eur more if you want the room to get cleaned before or after>

Liked: Within 5min walk of major metro station - 5mins ride to Las Ramblas/town centre, trains every 3mins. 30min easy walk into the centre of town. Felt very secure, with security cards needed to enter complex, stairwell/lift and rooms/communal areas. Small but well functioning room - as it looked in the photo. Helpful friendly staff. As mentioned by others, if you want cleaning services additional to the once weekly provided, this costs extra. We didn't see the lack of housekeeping as a problem for a 4night stay. Good communal cooking facilities if required - useful to have a space in the fridge to keep drinks cool.

Disliked: Not a dislike but just a warning that it is basic and there is limited space but this is completely understandable from the price and description and we did not expect anything different.

Liked: Very friendly staff, clean rooms, nice cafe on the first floor, close to metro.

Disliked: Landscape is a bit ugly around it. Though it is the center of Barcelona, it's not the most beautifully-looking part of it. But this is not the hotel's fault anyway.
