Between the city and the sea

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 1, 2006

This 2** Hotel is located near the Barceloneta Metro station (line1) in a calm street, if you cross the street you are in the great "Riberra" district, 10 min walking and you are in the Barri Gotic and on la Rambla.

But for the transportation, the situation is also great, you have lots of buses lines that stop at the end of the hotel street, the hotel is also a solution in summer, because it's only 10 min walking from barceloneta crowded beaches.

The hotel is little but nice, better than some 3***, staff speaks english, french, spanish, catalan, there is a lift, room was nice aire contitioned was making some noise, but we were still happy to have it, the view from the bathroom was nice...

Breakfast is not so great, no much choice, bread wasn't that good but enough to live until the tapas!

Unique Quality: The best quality was the nice situation of the hotel

Directions: Between Barceloneta station and "Estacio de Francia"

This hotel is fine, for the cost you could not do better its the rooms were clean and neat although slightly small with TV, balconies to some rooms, mine had bath shower and a bidet.It is ideally located close to Barri Gotic and is only 10 mins from La Rambla, Barcelonetta metro is 4 mins walk. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and the rooms were serviced daily

This is a dump - avoid at all costs.

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)

Enjoy your stay in Barcelona - don't stay at this hotel! We booked four months in advance, and were given a broom cupboard! The ceiling was falling in, one of the two single beds was broken, and the toilet/bathroom you couldn't turn round unless you opened the door! We booked three nights but 'escaped' after just one. Went to the Park hotel instead, more expensive but worth it. For a cheaper but better hotel ( than this one ) try the Oasis.

Unique Quality: Unique qualities were: uniquely awful !
Do yourself a favour - Pass this one by!

Directions: Next to the railway - with associated noise!

Reasonably priced accomodation

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 8, 2002

We stayed at the Santa Marta Hotel which is near the Citudella and a good base for exploring.
£47 per double room per night

Unique Quality: Very cheap, close to both Port Vell and the Barrio Gotico. Also walking distance from La Parc Citudella. Closest metro station, Barceloneta (Linia 4)

The rooms are very small, but comfortable and clean and have a TV, shower and toilet. Breakfast is included. The only problem we had was the fact that there was a lot of building work going on at the station and we were woken at about 8am by drilling. It was just as well though, because we had so much to do we needed to get up early to fit it all in! Other than that, the location was peaceful and away from the noise of the main streets. The staff were friendly and helpful

Directions: Carrer del General Castanos right beside the Estacio de Franca
