Cheap and Convenient in Barcelona

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 11, 2009

When I'm looking for a hotel I consider price first and then try to pick the best of what's affordable. I don't need anything special, just a place to rest my head at night, a good clean shower, and a short walk with my luggage from a metro stop. This place has all of the above. It gets terrible reviews on other sites but we had a great experience here. It's a short walk from the paral.lel station and about a half mile walk to Las Ramblas. It had a free breakfast in the morning consisting of fruit, cereals, eggs, juice, pastries, and coffee. Not great, but good, satisfactory.
We had no issues with noise and it wasn't warm enough to use the air conditioner that everyone complained about. I would stay here again.

Directions: Paral.lel stop on the metro. approximately 30 minutes by train from the Barcelona airport.

After reading the reviews I was apprehensive about visiting this hotel. If you are looking for a budget place to stay it is excellent, does exactly what it should for such a cheap price and location. Where else will you find a hotel in the centre of such a popular tourist destination so cheap? The room we had was adequate, clean, needing a little overhaul but hey remember the price we have paid!

Buffet breakfast consists of ham, cheese, chorizo, eggs, yoghurt, cereals, fruit, orange/pineapple juice (which tasted more like sunny delight) baked beans, frankfurter sausages, coffee/tea, toast lots of stuff!

Reception were very helpful ( i broke my spectacles), maid service daily.

You get what you pay for and although not the prettiest view or room, for a tourist who will be out and about it does the job.

Unique Quality: great situation near to la ramblas

Basic hotel, but good price and location

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

I wasn't sure I would be happy with this hotel after reading a lot of mixed reviews online, but our experience was very satisfactory. I think one good thing we had opposed to most of the people who complained was that we had a room accessible from the main building (no walking through a parking lot) and it was spacious and faced the Avinguda del Parallel (I didn't mind the noise). The downside to the room was that we had two twin beds instead of a double, but we decided to stick with that arrangement rather than risk moving to a smaller room. The room area was very large, the bathroom was uncramped, and there was a big balcony over the street that got afternoon sun. Unfortunately they didn't put any patio furniture out there. Maybe people wouldn't enjoy the noise, but I sometimes wanted to sit out there except there was nothing to sit on. The staff were really kind and helpful, even though they always looked a bit swamped with things going on. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, with some warm food (try one of the Spanish tortillas on toast. Yum), though the juice was fake and watered down. The location was great though, 5 mins walk to La Rambla or the waterfront, and a Metro stop servicing two lines had an entrance on the next block.
