Liked: Amazing high ceilings, great location

Disliked: The fellow at the desk was not unfriendly, but the difficulty in communicating in English dissuaded me from asking for recommendations and information. Awesome location also meant that the Saturday night life was rather loud outside the window.

Liked: Location is perfect, in the heart of the Barcelona old town, unless you want to sleep long in silence - there are noises from the street both late in the night and early in the morning. We had clean towels, changed regularly, and clean bathroom.

Disliked: The room was painted grey and a quite dirty, what made the first impression rather bad. Dirty linen on one bad has been changed upon our request. The problem of the town is no information on the buses and trams except on the stops. Even the tourist information points have no map of the system (which I think is very convenient - and you can see more than from a subway train). I think it would be nice to have such information in the hotel.

Liked: Free wi-fi was good.

Disliked: Not all staff were multi-lingual which was difficult. Did not receive or find any information on the all you can eat breakfast. Did not like having to hand key into reception each time we left the hotel. Hotel room felt really unfriendly and cold - not very warming at all.

Liked: We had the corner room and had two balconies to ourselves.

Disliked: Because there is no A/C, we had to sleep with the balcony doors open. Our room was quite loud due to the bustling street noises. You get used to the noise on the second night, but I would not recommend this hotel for light sleepers traveling in the hotter months.

Liked: Good location. The French lady at reception was friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The room was VERY spartan. It looked nothing like the photographs and had virtually no decoration. It almost felt like a cell in an asylum. The bathroom was lit by a harsh strip light and had no extractor fan. The mattresses were very uncomfortable in that they were hard with very little 'give'. The room was very warm and had just an inefficient ceiling fan to cool it down. The lighting in the room was very poor- dull and faint. The noise from the street below was VERY loud! It was almost amplified by the surrounding buildings. The bearded man at the reception desk was unpleasant when we complained about the bed and enquired as to whether there was another room. The place is very expensive for what it is. There are hostels in just as good a location, with more charm and comfort, that are half the price!
