Room was not as displayed in the pictures. Cold and damp. Car park a 10 minute walk away. Really would not stay here again if it was free

Very nice hotel, excellent position.

Pros: Location , cleanliness, friendly staff , good Wi-Fi.
Cons: Maybe a little more storage space if possible.
Location: Great central position to walk to Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera , L Rambla, Nou Camp. Lots of places to eat etc.
Small boutique style hotel , very clean with minimalist décor. The staff are very friendly and happy to help point you in the right direction of the numerous things Barcelona has to offer. There's not an awful lot of storage space / facilities in the room so if you had multiple cases and lots of things to hang up you'd struggle a bit. However for a stay of a few days its absolutely fine and I'd have no problem going again or recommending to friends. The bed was very comfy and the room / bathroom spotless.
