Best location, but forget comfort

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 14, 2004

I just returned after 4 nights of budget accomodation in Barcelona. This 25+ room hotel is as basic as it can be, many room just with sink, bed, and wardrobe, plus a fan for the hot and humid days (which was still the case in September). Friendly reception staff available round the clock. No breakfast, but lots of bars and restos within 5 mins walk. Clean but spartan rooms. Showers on each floor.

Unique Quality: The location is just fabulous: right above the Parallel Metro station, as well as the cable car to the Montjuic. Bus 24 to the Plaza Cataluna stops in front of the hotel door, bus 36 to the beach round the corner. The district (the Poble Sec) is so typically Spanish (or Catalan) working class, you will miss all the lovely US and German tourists (am I sarcastic again?).

Directions: Take Metro 2 or 3 to Parallel and you are there.
Lots of reasonable-priced restaurants (incl. the inevitable KFC and Pizza Hut) within 5 mins walk, lots of reasonable priced shops and about 10 mins walk to the Mercat de Sant Antoni.

Le personnel de l’hôtel est rentré dans notre chambre en notre absence: nous avons été volé!
Nous avons passé la soirée au commissariat pour déposer plainte: N'ALLEZ PAS LA BAS, CE SONT DES ESCROCS!
De plus les chambres ne sont pas aux normes (hygiènes etc). Les draps et la chambre sont sales, la porte de la douche cassée et le plafond de la salle de bain est à deux doigts de s'écrouler!

The persons who work in the hotel went to our room during the afternoon: they stole us! We spent the entier night at the police office to register a complaint: DO NOT GO THERE, THEY ARE CROOKS!
Furthermore the rooms don't respect the norms. The rooms are dirty, the door of the shower broken and the ceiling of the bathroom is failling down!
