Hola! Thank you for sharing this amazing review and recommend Generator Barcelona, We are glad to heard that you enjoyed the Generator Experience. We hope to see you soon. Best regards.

4 out of 5
Location: Etwas ausserhalb des Zentrums von Barcelona, jedoch nicht weit einer Metrostation. Gleich gegenüber hat's einen 24/7 Supermarkt.
Ich war drei Nächte im Hotel, Städtereise. Ein 6er-Schlafsaal nur für Frauen, sehr angenehm und hab auch Leute kennengelernt. Da das Hotel etwas ausserhalb des Zentrums ist, ist man zwar ein wenig mehr unterwegs, dafür sieht man aber noch andere Viertel als nur die zentralen.
