Great location to las rambals street and the beach, beds were comfortable and the bathroom amenities were great.
The pre-requested iron and board were not in the room. Also out electricity would go out after using the iron, it delayed our visit to the city
Clean, beds were comfortable, friendly staff, close to port (10 minute walk)
Convenirnt for Port & Cruise Ships and City
The room looked like the room on the website when I booked it. I'm a light sleeper so the fact that it was quite and there was very little internal noise was great. When we were there there was a general strike and the hotel put up notices to advise guests of this unlike some other hotels that I'm aware of.
The hairdryer was in the bathroom and was one of those ones that is just a hose. Guests should definately bring their own hair dryer!!
the location of the hotel
1) the AC wasnt working in the room they had to change us to another room after 2 days 2) one of the members of our group cancelled at the last minute. We requested they reduce our room from a triple to a twin, they agreed. However at checkout they said booking.com would still charge them commission for a triple and hence made us pay alomost the whole amount for a triple (despite us staying in a twin room for the duration). They gave us a small discount for each night. Not acceptable.
Close to tourist attractions , La Rambla is about a 15min walk away
There were bed bugs in my room and i have been severly bitten. Other than that, the hotel was ok. i hope that this issue will be resolved as it would be shame to see this hotel go down as its in a good location
I liked it's proximity to where I was working
Lack of English TV chanels
