Positive: It was clean

Negative: The beds were far too short - probaby 5' 8". Our friend's bathroom (room 314) was drenched by a serious bath overflow from above. No offer to move to another room, or compensation, or even acknowledgment of their discomfort and inconvenience.

The hotel is situated in an excellent location, only a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas and close to the Metro station. The only fault I found with this hotel is at the floors are all wooden laminated you can hear other people walking around esp the cleaners in the morning!Overall I would stay at this hotel again.
